Wright Family Birth, Marriage and Personal Property Tax Records, Essex County, Virginia


The author has amassed a bounty of information about Wrights in southern Virginia. This volume contains appendices to Sorting Some of the Wrights of Southern Virginia: Birth Records, 1852 to 1896; Marriage Records, 1655 to 1900; and Personal Property Tax Lists, 1782 to 1850. These appendices present source records for persons named Wright by county and by type of record with the identification of the person named and their Wright ancestor to the extent known. The identification of a person or their ancestor by year and county indicates their year of death and county of residence at death. If no state is listed after the county, the state is Virginia; counties in states other than Virginia will have a state listed after the county.
