Wright Family Records: Prince Edward County, Virginia, Land Grants, Deed Records, Land Tax List, Death Records, Probate Records


The author has amassed a bounty of information about Wrights in southern Virginia. This volume is a collection of Wright records from Prince Edward County, Virginia. This work is divided into the following sections: land grants (1752-1900), deed records (1752-1901), land tax lists (1782-1850), death records (1853-1896), and probate records (1752-1907). Each section contains source information and an index. Sources include official county records in the Library of Virginia in Richmond, the National Archives, and other references. 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.
