Loudoun County Virginia


Map of Va: Loudoun CountyLoudoun County was created on 1 July 1757 from the northwestern portion of Fairfax County lying above Difficult Run. Forty years later, in 1797, a small portion of Loudoun was returned to Fairfax's jurisdiction, and at that time the county reached its present boundaries. The county was named in honor of John Campbell, fourth earl of Loudoun, titular governor of Virginia (1756-1759), and head of the British forces in America, 1756-1758, during the first years of the French and Indian conflict. The new county lay at the intersection of two major early Indian trails which later became the Leesburg Pike and the Carolina Road. On the western edge of the county, Harper's Ferry marked the beginning of the Virginia portion of the Great Valley Road. Consequently, Loudoun County became a waystation for many settlers who later moved south and west into the new lands opening in the eighteenth century.

LOUDOUN CO., VA 1810 CENSUS transcribed by John Vogt. 10 1/2 x 8 1/2, x, 80 pages. Maps, illustrations, full name index. This is the first surviving census for Loudoun, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. The transcription is in the order of the original document as it was taken by Stephen Roszel, the enumerator. A full name index is procvided for easy reference. Loudoun was an important and populous county (more than 21,000 in 1810) in the Northern Neck and was a gateway westward during the later eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.

N.B.: Numerous queries have asked why bother with printed books when these images are available online for examination. This and other 1810 censuses are transcribed by the author from the original microfilm images, and while many of Virginia's censuses are available online, they oftentimes are replete with misreadings and omissions. For example, a popular genealogical site which reproduces images (albeit very poor quality compared with the originals) has left off the last twelve folios of data from Loudoun! Caveat emptor!

LOUDOUN COUNTY MILITIA REGISTERS, 1793-1829 by Don Blincoe, Sr. 1993, ix, 495 pages (8x11), indices. A careful and exact transcription of the militia registers for this most important county. Contains over 20,000 references to men who served during this period. Extremely valuable, since every able-bodied male over sixteen years was liable for service unless exempted by age or infirmity. Also important for families who moved away, since often in the registers it notes their destinations. The Loudoun County militia journals list the names of hundreds of men who lived there from 1793 until 1824. There are company rosters naming the officers, sergeants, corporals, drummers and clerks. Officers of higher rank and assignment are frequently mentioned. One can also find the names and locations of home and tavern owners who provided space for companies to muster and rooms for boards to convene in. Although there is little family information, some militiamen are further identified by the listing of their fathers' or masters' names beside their own. There are many rosters which include father and son or several brothers, all in the same companies.
