Wright Family Deed Records 1782-1900 and Land Tax List 1782-1850, Campbell County, Virginia


The author has amassed a bounty of information about Wrights in southern Virginia. The sources for the records listed in this volume are the Campbell County, Virginia Deed Records, available from the Clerk of the Circuit Court in Rustburg, Virginia and the Campbell County, Virginia Land Tax Lists, available from the Virginia State Archives in Richmond. The deed records give book and page number, date, grantor, grantee and instrument (manumission, deed of trust, agreement, etc.). The land tax lists vary somewhat from year to year, but in general they provide the name of owner, residence, quantity of land, description of land, total value of land and amount of tax. 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.
