York County, Virginia Land Records, 1729-1763. Mary Marshall Brewer.
This book contains abstracts from the deed books (numbers: 4, 5 and 6) recorded in the period, 1729 to 1763. It provides a handy source of information useful to family historians. The records include not only deeds in the format of leases and releases, but also bonds, mortgages and occasionally prenuptial agreements, indentures of apprenticeship, and assignments of power of attorney. Clues to familial and marital relationships can be found in many of these instruments. Each entry ends with a citation to the original record.
In the early records land warrants and patents are recorded. Descendancy of the land is frequently given, reciting the heirs and their relationships. A full-name and place index adds to the value of this work.
