King & Queen County Virginia


Map of Va: King & Queen County King and Queen County was formed in 1691 from lands belonging to New Kent County lying north of the Pamunkey and York rivers. The late-seventeenth county was named in honor of the ruling monarchs, William III and Mary II, who were called to the throne n 1688. In 1701 the portion of King and Queen situated within Pamunkey Neck was made into King William County. In 1720 an upper portion of the county was taken to form part of Spotsylvania County, and again in 1727 an upper portion became part of Caroline County. Further additions to Caroline County from King and Queen occurred in 1742 and 1762. After 1762 its present boundary line was achieved. Two fires have devastated King and Queen's official county records. the first was a courthouse fire in 1828 which burned many early records. Then, on March 10, 1864, Union troops set fire to both the courthouse and the clerk's office, and virtually every county record was destroyed. Only a handful of land books covering the years 1723 to 1850, were saved from the conflagration.

KING & QUEEN CO., VA 1810 CENSUS transcribed by John Vogt. 10 1/2 x 8 1/2, x, 22 pages, maps, illus. This is the first surviving census for King and Queen, 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 and Queen 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.
