Virginia Land Causes: Lancaster County, 1795-1848 and Northampton County, 1731-1868


With a preface by Miles Barnes. The land causes abstracted here refer to chancery suits regarding dower rights, divisions of land among heirs, ejectment proceedings, etc. Included are depositions by various parties which frequently give dates of birth, death or marriage for key parties of the suit, and the verdict of the jury. In many cases ownership of the land is traced down from the original grant showing the various owners, and several generations of descendants.
