Amelia County Virginia


Map of Va: Amelia CountyAmelia County was created on 25 March 1735 from the lands of Prince George County west of Namozine Creek and from the portion of Brunswick. County north of the Nottoway River. The first court for the new county was held on 9 May 1735. It was named in honor of Amelia Sophia Eleanora, daughter of King George II. At the time of its creation, Amelia included the lands of present-day Amelia, Nottoway and Prince Edward counties, as well as the eastern part of Appomattox County. In 1754 Prince Edward County was cut off on the west; in 1789, Nottoway County was established from a part of Amelia, leaving Amelia in its present configuration.

Amelia CO., VA 1810 CENSUS transcribed by John Vogt. 2004, x, 15 pages, illustrations, map This is the first surviving census for Amelia, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. The original is in a very poor state of preservation; however, the transcriber was able to recover the majority of the faded names, with only six unreadable entries. (The computerized version available on the Web contains 204 out of 608 unreadable entries, along with other transcription errors!).

This and other 1810 censuses are transcribed by the author from the original images, and while many of Virginia's censuses are available online, they oftentimes are replete with misreadings.Caveat emptor!

Amelia Co. Revolutionary Public Claims transcribed by Janice L. Abercrombie and Richard Slatten.. 2005. 107 pages, 5 1/2X8 1/2.
As Continental forces and Virginia militia units were engaged in winning independence, American quartermasters and provisioners struggled to provide these units with all the necessities of life, from meals and guns to meat, fodder for horses, the horses themselves, firewood, and every other type of material. Much of this was requisitioned from the civilian population and certificates were issued payable in either continental or state funds, depending on the units supplied, upon presentation to court authorities. Thousands of these certificates issued to Virginians were duly entered by the courts, and they provide a fascinating insight into the period of the Revolution.

This publication contains interesting and useful information about the contributions of ordinary people to the Revolutionary War. It provides some details of people's service in the militia or as guards for prisoners of war; they indicate where some bodies of troops were at particular times; and they identify providers of horses, wagons, cattle, grain, or other supplies. Much of the information in this publication cannot be found anywhere else, which makes the surviving records particularly valuable. Also remarkable is the fact that records survived from virtually every county in the state at that time with the exception of the newly formed Kentucky counties. This makes the collection even more valuable in covering areas which heretofore in this time period have suffered from a lack of personal data. In addition to a faithful transcription by Janice Luck Abercrombie and the late Richard Slatten, a complete index is provided. ... An extremely important genealogical tool for searchers in Revolutionary-era materials. For a full description of the Virginia Revolutionary Public Claims and a listing of available counties, see: Revolutionary "Publick" Claims series
