Fauquier County, Virginia Deeds 1778-1785


Fauquier County was created in 1759, and is one of the few Virginia counties to have all of its deed books extant. The abstracts in this volume are taken from deed books seven and eight, and, in addition to deeds, include a variety of records such as: leases, bonds, contracts of sale, commissions, mortgages, and apprenticeships. Each abstract gives the names of the grantor(s) and grantee(s) as well as other individuals mentioned; slaves (when named) are included, as well as spouses’ names. Geographical features are included, but the exact dimensions of the land are not given in this work. Page numbers identify the placement of the original records for the researcher who may want to do further reading.
