Gloucester County, Virginia Court House Records



Walter Reed House in Gloucester, VirginiaRosewell PlantationPictured is the Walter Reed home in Gloucester, Virginia and the Rosewell Plantation. Gloucester County was created in 1651 but Indian activity dominated the scene. The fortress of Chief Powhatan was located on the north side of the river in Gloucester and Powhatan had built his homeWerowocomoco on land that is now in Gloucester County. This location is where Princess Pocahontas, daughter of Chief Powatan, saved Captain John Smith's life, earning both of them prominent places in our nation's history books. Apparently an order was given in the colony to erect brick courthouses because there is a menton the Middlesex County Ordewrs (1680-94) that the Gloucester court-house building was of brick and that the Middlesex Court House should be at least of equal goodness and dimensions " as ye brick court-house lately built in Gloucester County."

Huge Collection ! Norfolk County, Virginia Probate Records dating from 1674 to 1788 added to Virginia Pioneers.net

Norfolk County, Virginia Court House Records


Norfolk VirginiaIf you have Virginia ancestors, Norfolk is one of the first counties to research. The earliest records survived, thus providing a scope of genealogical discoveries. Norfolk County was created in 1691 and existed as a county until 1963 when it was consolidated with the city of South Norfolk to form the new City of Chesapeake. After the American Civil War, for a period of about 100 years, portions of Norfolk County were lost and the territory of the county reduced as they became parts of the separate and growing independent cities of Norfolk, Portsmouth and South Norfolk. Many of the earliest records did not survive, but Bks have been published on Lower Norfolk County. 

Suggested Books: Lower Norfolk County, Virginia Court Records: Bk A, 1637-1646 and Bk B, 1646-1651/2; Historical Southern Families by Boddie; Transcription of Lower Norfolk County, Virginia Records. Volume One: Wills & Deeds, Bk D, 1656-1666 by Brayton. 

Historical Tidbits: During 1666, Walter Bruce of Nansemond County who had married the widow of Thomas Sayer, one of the most prominent citizens of Lower Norfolk, increased his stepchildren's estates by presenting them with a considerable number of cattle. His wife sold four of these during his absence from Virginia to meet the expense of sending her daughter to school. By the terms of the will of John Russell, his daughter was to continue to be educated until she should marry. Want to receive more historical tidbits on Virginians? Join our free blog

Rockingham Co. Virginia tax digests, wills added to Virginia Pioneers.net

Rockingham County, Virginia Court House Records



Massanutten MountainElkton, VirginiaRockingham County was established in 1778 from Augusta County. Harrisonburg was named as the county seat. The county is named for Charles Watson-Wentworth, 2nd Marquess of Rockingham, a British statesman (1730-1782). He was Prime Minister of Great Britain twice, and a keen supporter of constitutional rights for the colonists. During his first term, repealed the Stamp Act of 1765, reducing the tax burden on the colonies. Appointed again in 1782, upon taking office, he backed the claim for the independence of the Thirteen Colonies, initiating an end to British involvement in the American Revolutionary War. However, he died after only 14 weeks in office. Rockingham County is the birthplace of Thomas Lincoln, the father of Abraham Lincoln.
