Hanover County Virginia

Map of Va: Hanover CountyHanover County was created on 1 May 1721 from the western portion of New Kent County. The new county was named for the Elector of Hanover, the future King of England. In 1742 Hanover was subdivided, with its own western portion becoming Louisa County. Thereafter, the county boundaries stabilized, except for a slight adjustment of the Hanover-Henrico county line in 1787. Virtually all of Hanoverís court records were lost in the Richmond fire in April, 1865. the only records which survived were the circuit court records, beginning in 1809, which remained in Hanover, and records found in the U.S. Court records which were housed in the Main Street Post Office building, one of the few structures to survive the Richmond disaster.

HANOVER CO., VA 1810 CENSUS transcribed, with an index by John Vogt. 10 1/2 x 8 1/2, x, 37 pages, illustrations, maps, index. This is the first surviving census for Hanover, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. A complete index is included for easy access. Hanover was an important county on the outskirts of the state capital (Richmond). Its records have suffered greatly from the depredations of several wars and the disastrous Richmond fire of 1865. This document should be a fine complement to the abstract of Roger Ward (below) on land taxes in the county.

These lists provide an unparalleled window into the patterns of slave marriages. For example, in the Hanover list, in addition to the ages and full names of husband and wife, it records the date and place of marriage, the couple's places of birth and residence, marital status (single or widowed), and husband's occupation. The Goochland and Louisa lists record similar date in most cases.
