In 1905 Crozier launched an ambitious series entitled Virginia County Records. The series, originally published in magazine format, ended eight years later after ten volumes in the first series and one in a new series had been published. Since a number of the Crozier books have been out of print for some time, Clearfield Company is pleased to make five of the volumes available to genealogists in paperback editions. With the exception of Volume I (New Series), which focuses on Westmoreland County, the articles in these reprints range over numerous Virginia counties and record categories. There is no duplication of information in any of the four “Miscellaneous” volumes; however, since the contents of Volumes VI, VII, IX and X were originally prepared for a periodical, researchers will find that the same record subject (e.g., Accomack County Land Grants) is often treated in more than one volume. In such cases, researchers may wish to acquire all the Miscellaneous volumes related to their county(ies) of interest.
This volume includes: Accomack Co. Land Grants; Chesterfield Co. Wills; Henrico Co. Land Grants and Other Records; Northampton Co. Wills; Orange Co. Marriage Bonds; Richmond Co. Land Grants; Lists of Early Settlers, Militia, and Revolutionary Soldiers; Seigneuries and Seigneurs in the College of Arms; and Family Histories of Cowherd, Freeman, and Twyman.
