Buckingham County suffered significant losses of its early court records. This scarcity of records makes this tax list transcription a valuable one. Unique in its approach, with an aim to faithfully preserve, as fully as modern type will permit, the spelling and “feel” of the original tax lists. Years in the making, painstakingly and meticulously transcribed without the usual omission, checked, rechecked and researched. Spanning a period of 29 years (1764,1773-4,1782-92) with over 12,700 individual records enumerating 39,000 tithes, names of slaves, annual summary table and graphs, plus a host of other information that will illuminate the lives and social structure of the county during the late Colonial and early Federal period. The curious researcher will find much of interest here. Included are the names of the taxpayers, their taxable male cohabitants, their slaves’ names, number of their slaves, horses and cattle along with other taxable items like riding carriages and acres of land.
These tax lists are transcribed just as the original lists are written; the format, layout and order along with all information recorded is preserved, allowing neighbors and family members to be identified. Includes a 25 page introduction providing a historical background, detailed explanations of the book’s features and format, a table of alternate surname spellings and a table of abbreviations found in the manuscript, a guide for using the reference work, appendices and a complete bibliography and reference section to aid continued research. Features a 160 page index and 227 pages of transcribed records of every name, enabling rapid assembly of information needed from a succession of years for genealogical, historical, sociological or demographic analysis. A unique combination of features, encompassed within a single, very useable and thoughtful layout, providing many facilities for the reader and ultimately resulting in a highly efficient tool that equally yields the maximum utility and quantity of information for the holder of this scholarly work, whether he/she be a genealogist, historian, antiquarian, sociologist or demographer.
Written by a genealogist, historian and Virginia native, this book represents a needed and valuable addition to the transcribed records for the county and is sure to help many to further trace their family history and more fully understand the social, economic and political structure of the lives of these early Virginians of Buckingham County. This book will be a valuable addition to every reference library.
