Wright Family Records, Land Tax List, Bedford County, Virginia, 1782-1850


The author has amassed a bounty of information about Wrights in southern Virginia. This information has been separated into sections by county and by type, making it an efficient and organized resource for Wright family researchers. The Bedford County, Virginia, Land Tax Lists were the source of the information in this volume. This collection of property tax records is arranged chronologically, 1782-1850. The format lists the names of property owners followed by such information as number of acres, value of land, average price per acre, tax rate, number of lots, yearly rent of lots, description of land, distance and bearing from the court house, and other information. A most helpful feature for each entry is the identification column, in which the author identifies the specific family and Wright family ancestors from whom the named Wright descends. All names are indexed.
