Dinwiddie County Virginia


Map of Va: Dinwiddie CountyDinwiddie County was established on 1 May 1752 from the western portion of Prince George County. It was created during the lieutenant-governorship of Robert Dinwiddie and named in his honor. At the time of its formation, it was bounded by the following counties: Chesterfield on the north, Amelia on the north and west, Brunswick and Surry on the south, and Prince George County on the east. Dinwiddie's boundaries have remained unaltered since its creation. (N.B.- The independent municipality of Petersburg lies on the northern edge of Dinwiddie County, and their records are often combined). Dinwiddie's records survived the Revolutionary conflicts and the attacks made by Tarleton in the area; however, in the closing days of the Civil War, Union troops ransacked the county, including the courthouse, and either destroyed or carried away most of the county's records as souvenirs. Only a few scattered record books survived this vandalism.

DINWIDDIE CO., VA 1810 CENSUS transcribed by John Vogt. 2011, 10 1/2 x 8 1/2, x, 22 pages, illustrations, maps. This is the first surviving census for Dinwiddie, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. The manuscript is transcribed in its original form with all beginning and ending notations included. The original is in bad condition, with tape covering some of the data and large pieces of the manuscript's corners torn away. In addition, water damage partially obscures some of the names. The transcriber has examined this document meticulously in over two hundred hours of study and has extracted all of the available and surviving data. This census should be a complement to the fine work of Roger Ward (below) on land taxes in the county.

BATH PARISH REGISTER (BIRTHS, DEATHS & MARRIAGES), 1827-1897 OF DINWIDDIE COUNTY AND ST. ANDREWS PARISH VESTRY BOOK, 1732-1797 OF BRUNSWICK COUNTY transcribed by William Lindsay Hopkins, 1989, 130 pages (8x11), index. These two parish records have been combined into one volume as they are adjoining parishes and share some of the same family names. Bath Parish was formed in 1742 by a division of Bristol Parish in Prince George County. In 1752, Prince George County was divided to create Dinwiddie County. The current volume includes not only its own record of births, deaths and marriages but also the St. Andrew's Parish Register records for the years 1827-1838. St. Andrew's Parish was formed in 1720 from Bristol Parish and all of the parish vestry business is a part of these records including the important "processioning of lands" which took place every four years and many times names the land owners and the men who were doing the processioning. The name index includes over two thousand individuals.
