Fairfax County Virginia

Map of Va: Fairfax CountyFairfax County was established in 1742 from the northeastern lands of Prince William County. Its name was taken from Thomas Fairfax, sixth baron Fairfax of Cameron, proprietor of the Northern Neck. At that time it also included all of Loudoun County (taken from Fairfax in 1757). An adjustment in the Loudoun-Fairfax line was made in 1798, and a portion of Loudoun County was returned to Fairfax's jurisdiction. in 1801 the area of present Arlington County was ceded by the state of Virginia from Fairfax County lands to become part of the federal government's District of Columbia. Settlers were moving into the Fairfax area as early as the middle of the seventeenth century. the first land patent in the region dates from 1651. when the county was established officially in 1742, the population base already numbered 4,125, with fully one-third of these as black slaves. The county suffered heavily from destruction and theft and a considerable portion of its records were lost during the Civil War.

FAIRFAX CO., VA 1810 CENSUS transcribed by John Vogt. 10 1/2 x 8 1/2, x, 35 pages. This is the first surviving census for Fairfax, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. The transcription is in the rough alpha order of the original document for easy reference. Fairfax was an important and populous county in the Northern Neck and adjacent to the nation's capital. It rural nature persisted well into the nineteenth century, and it was the home of greats from the Revolution such as George Washington and George Mason.

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!
