This is the fifth volume in a series of land tax records, which offer a wealth of valuable genealogical data presented in a convenient table format with entries listed alphabetically by surname within each section. This volume covers the period 1875 to 1895. It includes four complete years: 1875, 1880, 1885 and 1895, including the tax for public school and county purposes. Taxes for county purposes were collected for eight years between 1852 and 1861 and began again in 1880. The 1890 Land Tax has been published in a separate book, Northampton County, Virginia "1890" Land Tax. Between 1875 and 1880 the author noticed several inconsistencies such as in 1875 a James T. Ashby Est. 167 1/3 acres and in 1880 a John T. Ashby Est. with the same acreage. There are also discrepancies in number of acres in several areas as well. It is interesting to note the sale of Cape Charles lots between 1885 and 1895. A facsimile reprint of an original map that shows the 644 Cape Charles lots is included.
