Isle of Wight County, Virginia, Deeds, Wills, Conveyances, Book A, 1628-1659
This is the fifth in an eight-volume series pertaining to the early genealogy of Surry and Isle of Wight counties. The genealogies trace the various families in a six-generation format that includes all records, documents, and discussions of descent. Each genealogy begins with the immigrant ancestor and traces all descendants, male and female, down to the children of the fifth generation. The other books in the series consist of abstracts or transcriptions of the records of Isle of Wight County. This volume is a verbatim transcription of the first book of county records for Isle of Wight. It features some of the earliest extant records for colonial Virginia. In all, the wills and conveyances establish relationships among more than 1,000 of the earliest inhabitants of the colony.
