Essex County VA FN Register

I posted this to another list a couple of weeks ago thought it needed to be here too.

This information is taken from the magazine entitled Tidewater VA. Families - A Magazine of History and Genealogy ($25 a year subscription). A transciption of The Essex County VA Register appears in the Nov/Dec 1998 issue Vol. 7 no. 3 and endds in Aug/Sept. 200- vol. 9 no. 2 (serialized in 9 issues). There are 339 entries and covers the period 10 No. 1810 to Feb. 15, 1841. Apparently a xeroxed county of the orginal register is at the Essex County Courthouse. Surnames included:

Webb, Bailey, JOnes, Atkinson, Hollinger, Day, Lewis, Soleleather, Rollins, McGiven, Gilbert, Dickman, McGuy, Braxton, Charity, Satterwhite, Drake, Eli, Mann, Lewis, Cole, Fields, Adams, Gordon, Johnson, Good, Ferguson, Bird, Mann, Simmons, Maggs, Meredith, Richards, Bunday, Spooner, Richardson, Fauntleroy, Stewart, Hill, Gowan, Hollinger, Ware, Palmer, Bush, Saunders, Curry, Drake, Fortune, Reeves, Goode, Underwood, Rich, Chandler, McDowney, Green, Taylor, Kay, Parker, Young, Breedlove, and McDonney.
