Fauquier County Virginia

Map of Va: Fauquier CountySettlers began moving into the western portion of Prince William County as early as 1704. By 1759 the population had reached a size sufficient to warrant a county in its own right. Fauquier County was created on 1 May 1759 from the western lands of Prince William County. Following a tradition established by some of his predecessors, the county was named in honor of the current lieutenant governor, Francis Fauquier (1758-1768). Its boundaries have remained unchanged since that time. Fauquier County was an area held in large tracts by landowners who preferred to lease rather than sell the property to those who farmed it. Consequently, it was a county which provided many settlers for the Shenandoah Valley and beyond as the farmers preferred the cheaper western lands to the Fauquier leases. Germans from Spotswood's Germanna colony moved there in considerable numbers in 1718 when their tenure of indenturement with Spotswood had ended, and they founded Germantown. A number of Scots and Germans from Pennsylvania also came into the colony and settled for a time. Fauquier's records are nearly complete, despite two courthouse fire (1853 and 1859).

Marshall, Virginia - renamed in 1882 in honor of Chief Justice John Marshall, has experienced many changes since the town was surveyed and platted by John Mauzy in 1797. The geographical focus of this book is based on that survey and an area of 2 1/2 miles surrounding the village.

From these early settlement beginnings to a small, pleasant town of rural charm in the early 1950s, Marshall experienced complex problems brought about by the onset of progress. Because of northern Virginia expansion to the area, anticipated future growth did not mature, townhouse development became a reality and Interstate 66 was opened through Fauquier County, placing many demands upon a small town.

Historian John Gott, by presenting this history in an honest and impartial interpretation, connects the past in some way with the conditions of the times. Problems are discussed and suggestions for solutions are explored. Optimistically, he feels there are public spirited individuals and business firms with a sense of both past and future who will devise ways of preserving the best of what remains, and use it to enhance the future to Marshall.

The current volume was first published in hardback form in extremely limited quantities in 1987, and it became an immediate classic. The current paperback edition was authorized by the author just one month prior to his death in July 2004.
2004. 8 x 10, x, 226 pages.

FAUQUIER FAMILIES, 1759-1799: COMPREHENSIVE INDEXED ABSTRACTS OF TAX AND TITHABLE LISTS, MARRIAGE BONDS AND MINUTE, DEED AND WILL BOOKS PLUS OTHER 18TH CENTURY RECORDS OF FAUQUIER COUNTY, VIRGINIA by John P. Alcock. This book is a godsend for genealogists working on Fauquier ancestors. The abstracts summarize all significant genealogical information currently available relating to any and all persons who got into the records of county or state governments from the first session of the county court in May 1759 through the end of 1799. If one doesn't find a searched-for name in this book, chances of uncovering something useful in the courthouse in Warrenton or the State Archives in Richmond are minimal. These abstracts summarize Will Books, Deed Books, Minute (Order) Books of the County Court, Marriage Bonds and their associated consents, Tithable and Personal Property Tax Lists, colonial quitrents, rent rolls for Leeds Manor, and other records available at the county courthouse and in the Virginia State Archives. 1994. (Retypeset and Reprinted 2015) 8 x 10, xxvi, 362 pages.

FAUQUIER COUNTY, VIRGINIA RECORDS Fauquier Families volume 2 (supplement) by John P. Alcock In 1996 a large part of the "loose papers" from the basement of the Fauquier County Courthouse was sorted, catalogued, indexed, and filed systematically. Early in 1997 it was brought upstairs to the Records Room and added to the deed books, will books, marriage records, etc. This Supplement, like its predecessor covers only the period from the founding of the county in 1759 to the end of the 18th century. What it does for the genealogist and local historian is this:

  1. provides complete copies of all the extant tithable lists through 1781 except for names of negroes (slaves). It also copies the personal property tax lists for 1783 as returned by the several census takers. The list available heretofore for 1783 was a consolidated one that had been sent to Richmond. It differed from the individual lists by omitting the names of white tithables whose head tax someone else was responsible for paying.
  2. abstracts 1784 marriage bonds (and a few from other years) and copies their associated consents. They had not been bundled with those of other years and so had not been copied into the Marriage Books.
  3. abstracts leases in the Manor of Leeds that had not been recorded in the Deed Books. It also abstracts those surveys of lots in the Manor that were held in the personal papers of Lord Fairfax and his heir Denny Martin Fairfax. The surveys are in the State Archives in Richmond.
  4. presents abstracts of the papers of Chancery suits completed from 1759 through 1789.
2000. 8 x 10, x, 212 pages.
