Essex County, Virginia Marriage References and Family Relationships 1626-1800


This volume is a comprehensive compilation of marriage references, actual and implied, in early Essex County, Virginia from 1626 through 1800.

Marriages references have been gleaned from Essex County land records, probate records, (wills, inventories and administration accounts), court records, military service and pension records, church records, family histories, and other documented secondary sources.

This book is much more than just names and dates. In many instances the reader will find dates of birth and death, names of parents, children, siblings, other relatives, places of residence in Virginia and other states, occupations, public offices, military ranks, and other information. In many cases there is ample information about family relationships to enable researchers to establish their family lineages for several generations.
