King George County Virginia

Map of Va: King George CountyKing George County was formed in 1720 from the upper part of Richmond County. The county was the first of many named for the family members of the new ruling Hanoverian Dynasty, in this case the first German monarch for England, King George I. In 1730 King George gave up its upper portion to form a part of Prince William County in turn. In 1776, there was a significant readjustment in the boundary line between King George and Stafford counties. Instead of extending along the Rappahannock and Potomac rivers respectively, after 1776 the counties extended from river to river. By this arrangement, the southern portion of Stafford County became King George land, while the northern part of King George shifted to Stafford. In 1777 a portion of King George County was given over to Westmoreland County, while a part of Westmoreland also went to King George. At that point the county's boundaries stabilized. Many early records are missing. Some were destroyed or lost. The county's first will book (1721-52) was carried off by a Union soldier as a souvenir. It was returned to the county in 1977.

KING GEORGE CO., VA 1810 CENSUS transcribed by John Vogt. 10 1/2 x 8 1/2, x, 15 pages, maps, illus. This is the first surviving census for King George, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. The transcription is in its original rough alpha order of the original document for easy reference. King George was one of the first settlements in the Northern Neck in the late seventeenth century and it has been the scene of numerous historic events. The very high proportion of slaves to the overall total illustrates the plantation society which existed in the area by the beginning of the nineteenth century. This transcription is carefully executed and corrects numerous errors which have crept into the internet databases.

KING GEORGE COUNTY VIRGINIA LOOSE CHANCERY PAPERS VOLUME 1: 1811-1875 transcribed by Elizabeth Nuckols Lee. 1998, vi, 173 pages, index. The information presented in this document represents the results of a county records indexing project which began in January 1996. This project was initiated to index the loose chancery papers found stored away in the King George County Circuit Court Clerk's Office, King George, Virginia. It was funded by a grant administered by the Library of Virginia. The majority of suits dealt with the division of real and personal property of a decedent, when minor children were involved. This was the case when a person had many children over a long period of time, a person had been married more than once, or when an adult child was also deceased and had minor children. The law required that minor children be protected. Suits had to be brought to guarantee that protection. As a result, some chancery bills contain as many as four or five generations of a family. Between 1811 and 1840, surviving chancery papers are few. From 1842 to 1898, the chancery papers appear to have survived for the most part. In 1898, the system for filing chancery papers was modified. Many old pending suits were dismissed or discontinued. Those papers will be included in the second volume. A few chancery papers were stored in the vault from 1898 to 1912 even though most chancery papers of this time period had been filed and indexed previously. [Kgcp] $19.95
