CD: Annals of Henrico Parish, Diocese of Virginia, and Especially of St John's Church, the Present Mother Church of the Parish, from 1611 to 1884


"A history of Henrico Parish, and particularly of old St. John's Church…" embraces "statistical information, historic facts and Church data that are obtainable from no other source than its old records." "Many of the records of St. John's have been lost or destroyed, and some of those in possession of the Church are fragmentary and imperfectly kept;" however, "the records since 1860 are fairly well kept and are in good condition." This volume includes the annals of Henrico Parish; the history of St. John's Church; the succession of bishops of Virginia, the succession of ministers of Henrico Parish and the succession of vestrymen of St. John's Church; various speeches, addresses and sketches of prominent men within the church; lists of heads of families, communicants, marriages, baptisms and burials, including inscriptions on the tombstones of St. John's churchyard. An addendum presents the Vestry Book of Henrico Parish. A subject, place and fullname index and illustrations provide additional information for the reader. The book is presented as graphic images, so the user sees the work just as it was originally published. It is intended to look and function very much like a "real" book. There is no electronic index, and there is no electronic text to search. However, numerous electronic bookmarks have been added which make it easy to move through the book. Image numbers will match the page numbers for all of the main text, as well as the index. Any unnumbered portraits and illustrations are at the back of the actual file, to keep page numbering consistent.
