Lunenburg County Virginia


Map of Va: Lunenburg CountyLunenburg was formed in 1745 from the western portion of Brunswick County. It named reflected one of the titles of King George II, who was also the Duke of Brunswick-Lunenburg in the German states. In 1753 Halifax County was created from the southwestern part of Lunenburg, and the following year, 1753, Bedford County was established from the northwestern portion. Another addition from Lunenburg to Bedford came in 1754, when land west of the mouth of Falling River was given to the latter. In 1764 both Charlotte and Mecklenburg counties were created from Lunenburg land, and in 1777 a part of Charlotte's holdings were returned to Lunenburg. Lunenburg County achieved its present boundaries at that time.

LUNENBURG CO., VA 1810 CENSUS transcribed by John Vogt. 10 1/2 x 8 1/2, x, 38 pages, illustrations, maps. This is the first surviving census for Lunenburg, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. Lunenburg was a populous county in Southside Virginia, with moderate-sized plantations and a significant slave population (60%). In addition to the census, the transcriber has correlated the names on the census with those of the 1815 landowners in Lunenburg. 1815 was the first year in which the owner's land was delineated in relation to its distance and direction from the courthouse. In this manner, groups of settlers may be ascertained and family groups defined.

This and other 1810 censuses are transcribed by the author from the original images, and while many of Virginia's censuses are available online, they oftentimes are replete with misreadings.Caveat emptor!
