Stafford County Virginia


Map of Va: Stafford CountyStafford County was formed in 1664 from the upper portion of Westmoreland County. As initially created, it included all of the land from the Potomac River westward to the dividing ridge of the watershed between the Potomac and Rappahannock rivers. Stafford's lands north of Chapawamisck Creek were cut off to create part of Prince William County in 1730. In 1776 the boundaries of Stafford and King George counties were greaty altered so that the dividing line ran from the Potomac River to the Rappahannock River rather than along the watershed ridge line. The lower portion of Stafford became part of King George and the upper half of King George was transferred to Stafford's administration. Many of Stafford's county court records were vandalized by Federal occupation troops during the Civil War.

STAFFORD CO., VA 1810 CENSUS transcribed, with an index by John Vogt. 2010, 10 1/2 x 8 1/2, x, 25 pages, illustrations, maps, index. This is the first surviving census for Stafford, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. A complete index is included for easy access. Stafford was one of the earliest counties in the area known as the Northern Neck, and it was settled under the auspices of Lord Fairfax pursuant to his grant. The county's location along the Potomac and Rappahannock Rivers gave it added importance as a commercial center, and the town of Falmouth was an important shipping center for the region.

"The records in these books are certain to provide genealogical breakthroughs for countless researchers interested in colonial Stafford County....The records in this set are of such a variety and importance that they bear noting here..." [review, The Virginia Genealogical Society Newsletter, Vol. XVI, No. 2, Mar.-Apr. 1990, p.4]. 1990, 2v., xi, 612 pages, index, figures, maps. Stafford County was formed in 1664 from the upper portion of Westmoreland County. As initially created, it included all of the land from the Potomac River westward to the dividing ridge of the Potomac Rappahannock watershed. Stafford's lands north of Chapawamsick Creek were cut off in 1730 to form part of Prince William County. In 1776 a major boundary alteration between Stafford and King George so altered the boundary that the ridgeline no longer served as the dividing line. The lower portion of Stafford became part of King George and the upper half of King George was transferred to Stafford's jurisdiction. A total of 1,917 different surnames are recorded here, representing several thousand individual families. More than fifteen thousand entries are included in the sixty-four pages of triple columned index.
