Fauquier [Virginia] Families, 1759-1799


Comprehensive Indexed Abstracts of Tax and Tithable Lists, Marriage Bonds and Minute, Deed, and Will Books plus Other 18th Century Records of Fauquier County, Virginia

This book is a godsend for genealogists working on Fauquier ancestors. The abstracts summarize all significant genealogical information currently available relating to any and all persons who got into the records of county or state governments from the first session of the county court in May 1759 through the end of 1799. If one doesn't find a searched-for name in this book, chances of uncovering something useful in the courthouse in Warrenton or the State Archives in Richmond are minimal. These abstracts summarize Will Books, Deed Books, Minute (Order) Books of the County Court, Marriage Bonds and their associated consents, Tithable and Personal Property Tax Lists, colonial quitrents, rent rolls for Leeds Manor, and other records available at the county courthouse and in the Virginia State Archives.
