Other Places to Discover the Earliest Land Grants in Virginia #genealogy #virginiapioneersnet

Sometimes one discovers Colonial Virginia Land Grants in the County Records.  They are usually found in the earliest books entitled Wills, Deeds, Estates, etc. which are published together. One has to read each page to discover a particular record.  Charles City County published some very interesting deeds beginning in 1655 and lists of people who received land grants.  As I said, one must dig, page by page. If you are searching for an immigrant who is not listed in the Book of Emigrants, or other Virginia land grant books, it may be worth the while to read the whole record.  Granted, 17th century writing is difficult to read. Here is a Chart which will help you to read old script
