Summary
Vestry book, 1764-1818, containing minutes, 4 January 1764-4 May 1780, and records of the Overseers of the Poor, 1780-1818 (pages 78-321). An unusual but incomplete index precedes the vestry minutes. Included among the proceedings of the vestry are recorded bonds of vestrymen who had responsibilities of handling parish levies. The records of the Overseers of the Poor cover Frederick County and the city of Winchester and provide an interesting study of the operation of the board which replaced the vestry in many parishes after 1780, especially as to the full citing of Rules and Regulations. Accession 30096 is the manuscript copy of this volume

Frederick County was created from Orange County in 1738, which since its formation in 1734 had extended more or less indefinitely westward. Not until 1743 were the county and the parish of Frederick organized. By the time of the earliest extant records, the extent of Frederick Parish had been reduced by the formation of Hampshire Parish, Hampshire County (West Virginia); in 1769 the parish was further reduced by the formation of Norborne Parish, Berkeley County (West Virginia) and Beckford Parish, Dunmore County, later Shenandoah County, Virginia.
