According to the National Archives of Canada website at www.archives.ca/02/02020205_e.html, the official enumeration date used for this census was 12-Jan-1852.

Welland County, Canada West (Ontario)

The 1851 census for Welland County is on FHL microfilm roll # 349244.

I searched the records for Catholic families from France and Germany, and also for the name SNIDER of any religion.

The census records are missing for these townships: Crowland, Humberstone, Wainfleet.

I found no matching names in these townships: Chippawa, Pelham, Thorold, Stamford.

Bertie Township

Willoughby Township

It appears that the Willoughby census taker may have documented people's ages based on how old they would be on their birthday in 1852. I make this speculation by comparing census ages to birthdates known from the baptism records, for example in the case of John Willick's family.
