Wright Family Personal Property Tax Lists, Campbell County, Virginia 1785-1850


The author has amassed a bounty of information about Wrights in southern Virginia. The source for the records listed in this volume is the Campbell County, Virginia, Personal Property Tax Lists, available from the Virginia State Archives.

This collection of personal property records is arranged chronologically. The easy-to-read format may include white and black tithables, whites over twenty-one, blacks over sixteen, blacks under sixteen, total blacks, horses, mules, cattle, carriages, clocks, gold watches and other items of value. All names are indexed.

A most helpful feature for each entry is the identification column, in which the author identifies the specific family and Wright ancestors from whom the named Wright descends.
