York County Virginia


Map of Va: York CountyYork County was one of the original shires established in 1634. It was first known as Charles River County until 1642/43 when the name was changed to York. Territory was taken from York to form Gloucester County in 1651 and again in 1654 for the creation of New Kent County. In 1769 a small parcel of land on which the James City County court house was due to be built was transferred to that county from York. in 1852 land was added from York County to the city of Williamsburg and its vicinity. The records of York County are almost complete, despite the heavy fighting in the area during the Civil War. The records were transferred from the courthouse to a boat and hidden in the upper reaches of the Pamunkey River until the fighting subsided.

  • Charles Parish, York Co., Va, History and Registers: Births, 1648-1789; Deaths, 1665-1787 by Landon C. Bell. Published 1932; reprinted 2011, 6 x 9, xii, 285 pages.


    This volume, first printed in 1932, is a transcription of the Register of Charles Parish, York County, Virginia, and it contains the earliest entries of any Virginia church record book in existence. For easy reference, the author reorganized the contents of the original register into two separate alphabetical lists, one for births (3,500+) and the other for deaths (c. 2,000). Births usually give the child's name, the names of the parents, the date of birth and, sometimes, the date of baptism. The death records indicate the decedent's full name and date of death, and, sometimes, the given name of a spouse or parent. Chapters are also included on a narrative history of the formation of Charles Parish and its relationship to York County. The historical narrative discusses the origins of the parish, controversies arising out of the election of parish vestrymen and the arrival of parish ministers and their families. A complete index of every name found in the history and among the birth and death records is provided.

    YORK CO., VA 1810 CENSUS transcribed by John Vogt. 2010, 10 1/2 x 8 1/2, xii, 23 pages, illustrations, maps, in the original rough alphabetic order by letter. This is the first surviving census for York, which has the distinction of being one of the oldest counties in the nation. Its location astride the Virginia Peninsula, with its fine harbors and close proximity to the Virginia colonial capital of Williamsburg, attracted merchants, politicians, and artisans. Although the tide of settlement had long passed by the time of the 1810 census, many of the families who had moved on westward remained with collateral descendants in York. In addition, the enumerator of the census identified those persons residing in York Town [where Cornwallis had surrendered to end the American Revolution] as well as the environs of Williamsburg.

    Surnames found in the 1810 York census:
    Allen; Alvis; Anderson; Apperson; Archer; Armfeild; Armistead; Ash; Ashby; Austin; Bailey; Banks; Baptist; Barnett; Bart; Bartlet; Bates; Bell; Belvin; Berry; Blassingham; Block; Blow; Bohanon; Bollett; Booth; Boutwell; Bowen; Bowser; Brackin; Bridget; Briggs; Bright; Brooks; Broughton; Brown; Bryan; Bullifant; Burcher; Burt; Burwell; Campbell; Cardwell; Cary; Chabot; Challis; Chambers; Chapman; Charles; Charlton; Chisman; Christopher; Coke; Cole; Coleman; Combs; Cook; Cooper; Corbin; Cosby; Cowles; Cox; Craig; Crapper; Crenshaw; Crittendon; Crocket; Curtis; Cuttillo; Dagnal; Davenport; Davis; Dawson; Dixon; Drakes; Drewry; Eaton; Edwards; Elliott; Ellis; Esther; Fitzhugh; Fletcher; Foster; Fox; Francis; Freeman; Garrett; Garrow; Gault; Germain; Gibbons; Gibbs; Giddens; Gillet; Gilliam; Godfrey; Goodall; Goodwin; Goosley; Grass; Graves; Griffin; Grimes; Gun; Guy; Hailey; Haily; Hankins; Hansford; Harris; Harrison; Hays; Hazlewood; Henderson; Hill; Hobday; Hogg; Holloway; Hopkins; Hopson; Howard; Hubberd; Hughes; Hunt; Huson; Inge; Insley; Jackson; James; Jarvis; Jasper; Jennings; Jestice; Johns; Johnson; Jones; Jordan; Kerr; King; Kirby; Lang; Larke; Lawson; Leavil; Leber; Lee; Lightfoot; Lindsay; Lively; Lyons; Macaulay; Macklin; Marshall; Martin; Mason; Matthews; McCrosky; Meads; Melson; Mennis; Messick; Monnet; Moore; Moreland; Morgan; Morris; Moss; Muller; Nelson; Newman; Newstep; Nicolson; Notts; Orrell; Paradise; Parsons; Patrick; Patterson; Peachy; Peerman; Pescud; Peters; Phillips; Pigg; Poe; Potts; Powell; Power; Presson; Provoo; Purdie; Ratcliffe; Redcross; Repiton; Reynolds; Richards; Rider; Roan; Roberts; Robinson; Rode; Rogers; Rollins; Roundtree; Rowe; Royce; Russell; Salter; Sands; Saunders; Scott; Seawell; Selater; Semple; Shackleford; Sheild; Skipwith; Slaughter; Smith; Southall; Speed; Spencer; Stakes; Stedman; Stevens; Stokes; Stroud; Tabb; Taylor; Tazewell; Teagle; Tennis; Tensor; Teterel; Thomas; Throckmorton; Timpson; Tinny; Tompkins; Toppin; Traverse; Tucker; Turner; Tyler; Valentine; Verges; Wade; Walker; Wallace; Waller; Walters; Warburton; Washer; Watkins; Weathers; Webb; White; Whitfeild; Williams; Wills; Wilsford; Wilson; Wise; Wiseright; Wood; Wright; Wyatt; Wynne; and Young.

    YORK COUNTY, VIRGINIA MARRIAGES, VOL.1: BONDS & MINISTERS' RETURNS, 1769-1853 compiled & annotated by Michael Pollock. 1994, viii, 166 pages, index. The author adds a valuable set of annotations and comments to this valuable collection of marriage records. York was an original county, and while no marriage records exist for its first 140+ years, those records beginning about 1769 represent descendants of many of the original families who settled in the area during the seventeenth century.
