New Kent Co. VA Genealogy Records #virginiapioneersnet

New Kent County Genealogy, Wills, Estates, Probate Records, Marriages

New Kent Court House

Captain John Smith visited this area in 1607 and since that time many Europeans began immigrating into Virginia. New Kent County once formed part of Charles River County, one of the eight shires into which the colony of Virginia was divided in 1634. It origiinally included part or all of the present day counties of King & Queen, King William, Spotsylvania and Hanover, the modern day borders of New Kent took place in 1766 through exchange of land with James City County. Actually, researchers will see the mention of "Brick House". This was the first town and this was the seat of the first government. This historical site knows its history, starting with Nathaniel Bacon who, when the Governor refused to do anything about Indians who killed settlers and looted the area, formed his famous rebellion among his neighbors. The historical genealogy of the Bacon family is traced on Virginia Pioneers and is available to members. The village of New Kent appears to have been the County seat since 1691. Most of the County's colonial records were destroyed in the burning of the clerk's office in 1787, and later records were destroyed in the burning of Richmond during the Civil War. Providence Forge was one of the earliest settlements and the site of a colonial forge that was destroyed by Banister Tarleton during the Revolutionary War. Another site, St. Peter's Church at Talleysville was established in 1678 and built in 1701. It was enlarged in 1740 by the addition of a tower and vestry room and in the 1760's by the building of a north wing, believed to have been torn down in 1854. Martha Dandridge Custis who lived in White House on the Pamunkey, worshiped here at the time of her marriage to George Washington. The road leading from Richmond to Williamsburg is one oldest roads in America.

Rockbridge Co. VA Genealogy Records #virginiapioneersnet

Rockbridge County Genealogy, Wills, Estates, Tax Digests

Natural Bridge, Virginia

It is said that George Washington was one of the surveyors of the region of Natural Bridge. Rockbridge County was established in October, 1777 from parts of now neighboring Augusta and Botetourt counties, and the first county elections were held in May 1778. Rockbridge County was formed during an Act of Assembly intended to reduce the amount of travel to the nearest courthouse, and to ensure trials were held fairly, and among friends rather than strangers. The first court session in Rockbridge County was held at the home of Samuel Wallace on April 7, 1778. Rockbridge County was named after Natural 5ridge, a beautiful landmark in the southern portion of the county.

    Powhatan Co. Virginia Genealogies and Histories #virginiapioneersnet

    Powhatan County Genealogy, Wills, Estates, Probate Records


    Powhatan County was named after Powhatan, the Indian chieftain who ruled and terrorized the native inhabitants of tidewater Virginia in the early seventeenth century. It was formed from Cumberland County in 1777, and part of Chesterfield County was added later. The James River forms its northern border and the Appomattox River is on the south side. Historically the area had been occupied by the Monacan, and in 1700 French Huguenot refugees settled at their abandoned village, known as Manakin Town. Powhatan County is located southwest of Richmond along US Route 60 in the Richmond-Petersburg region.

    Northumberland Co. VA Genealogies and Histories #virginiapioneersnet

    Northumberland County Genealogy, Wills, Estates, Marriages, Indexes to Deeds and Orders

    Burgess, Virginia

    Northumberland County was formed about 1645, although not authorized until 1648, rom the district of Chickacoan, the early-seventeenth-century name for the region between the Potomac and the Rappahannock rivers. Its area is 223 square miles, and the county seat is Heathsville. The population is 12,259 according to the 2000 census. Courthouse Suffered some loss in a fire in the clerk's office on 25 October 1710. Birth and Death Records from 1650-1810 are located in the St. Stephens Parish. There being no court house in Northumberland in 1658, the judges met in a house probably used as a public tavern. But it was not until five years later that the court-house construction was begun. Before that, the justices held their sessions at the residences of Colonels Richard Lee and Peter Ashton. The building was situated at Fairfield and was made of wood. Therefore, in 1680, it was necessary to build another one. Source: Northumberland County Records, vol. 1652-66, p. 188; Orders Nov. 22, 1658; March 11, 1680. Virginia Historical Tidbits.
