Biographical or historical data
  • Recorded copies of grants issued for land in the Northern Neck from 1692 to 1862 when the territory encompassing the present state of West Virginia withdrew from the commonwealth to enter the Union are indexed.
  • The formation of West Virginia eliminated the major source of wasteland available in Virginia. Eighteen additional instruments dated as late as 1874 were entered in the final volume before these books were closed. All subsequent grants are recorded in the volumes described in entry 66. Gaps in the records exist for the period 1719-1722 and 1732-1736.
  • Following the recitation of the ownership of the Northern Neck are the name of the grantee, the description of the land, any reservations for the proprietor, and the date on which the grant was signed.
