Description

This is primarily a compilation of articles pertaining to tax records–a term used rather freely to permit inclusion of such records as personal property tax lists, tithables, poll lists, land tax lists, and rent rolls. Like census records, tax records have the distinction of placing people in a particular location at a definite time and identifying them in relation to their households and property, thus providing irrefutable evidence of their existence and places of habitation. These records probably represent only a fraction of the early tax records of Virginia, but they do constitute a large proportion of the surviving records and refer to some 20,000 individuals in all. Their consolidation in this volume, with an extensive index, will certainly facilitate research in this field. The mass of “tax records” assembled for this volume relate to the following Virginia counties (or Episcopal parishes): Accomac, Amelia, Brunswick, Caroline, Charles City, Cumberland, Dinwiddie, Elizabeth City, Essex, Frederick, Gloucester, Henrico, Isle of Wight, James City, King William, (King William Parish), King & Queen, Lancaster, Lunenburg, Middlesex, Nansemond, New Kent, Norfolk, Northampton, Orange, Pittsylvania, Prince George Princess Anne, Richmond, Spotsylvania, Surry, Warwick, Westmoreland, Williamsburg (city), York, (York-Hampton Parish).
