1 Abstracts of the Wills and Administrations of Accomack County, Virginia, 1800-1860
Barry W. Miles and Moody K. Miles, III
(2000), 2007, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 2 vols., 774 pp, Heritage Books

Marriage Records of Accomack County, Virginia, 1854-1895 (Recorded in Licenses & Ministers' Returns), Barry W. Miles and Moody K. Miles, III

2 Marriage Records of Accomack County, Virginia, 1854-1895 (Recorded in Licenses & Ministers' Returns)
Barry W. Miles and Moody K. Miles, III
(1997), 2006, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 422 pp, Heritage Books
This book contains the 6,225 marriages listed in the Accomack County, Virginia, Marriage Register No. 3, labeled 1854-1896. Marriage dates range from 8 July 1852 to 29 December 1895 with certificate return dates from 30 January 1854 to 31 December 1895. The license and return dates sometimes vary quite a bit. For example, a marriage certificate dated 8 July 1852 was returned on 26 April 1854, almost two years after the marriage. This book also contains 322 marriage licenses in the Accomack County Clerk’s Office dated from 1 January 1854 to 21 January 1875 that were not included in Marriage Register No. 3. The reason for this is that all marriages were not consistently reported to the County Clerk by local ministers until after the Civil War. There may have been a few that were not reported even after that time. The existence of a marriage license, however, does not assure that the marriage actually took place. There were free African Americans in Accomack County from the time of the earliest records (1632) and they came to be called “free-negro” in marriage records. Slavery was prohibited in Federally-occupied Virginia by the new constitution of April 1864, at which time all Accomack County African Americans became free. Helpful lists in this book include female nicknames, variations in surnames, ministers, clerks of court and abbreviations. The entries are arranged alphabetically, and there is an everyname index of brides at the end of the book.

5 Accomack County, Virginia, Court Order Abstracts, Volume 11: 1710-1714
JoAnn Riley McKey
2000, 5˝x8˝, paper, indices, 171 pp, Heritage Books
Accomack County's eleventh book of court orders began in May 1710, and continued through November 1714. Either the populace was generally satisfied with the court's judgments or the citizenry had learned that criticism was counterproductive; complaints about the court and its justices are not as evident as in previous years. The introduction spotlights the more interesting, revealing or unfortunate incidents found among the court orders issued during those years. These pages comprise a fascinating collection of accounts of assault, fornication and adultery, thievery and wills. Much can be learned about the economy, orphans and servants, old age and sickness, religion, household items, mills, roads and storehouses, taxes and more. This chronological collection of court orders is attractively presented and includes a fullname plus subject index. "In wills and deeds the genealogist can learn about his ancestors' relatives and possessions; in court orders he can learn about his ancestors."

Accomack Tithables, 1663-1695, Stratton Nottingham

8 Accomack Tithables, 1663-1695
Stratton Nottingham
(1931, 2001), 2010, 5˝x8˝, paper, 82 pp, Heritage Books
Some of the most valuable sources of information relative to the early generations of Virginia families are the lists of tithables, or tax lists. These lists enable the researcher to establish the locality in which many of our early ancestors first settled, and, when the tithables are recorded in other counties, to follow them with more or less accuracy when they moved on. Unfortunately all of the counties did not record these lists, but those of Northampton and Accomack were, and have, among other things, proved invaluable in connecting many of the families of these two counties with Sussex, Delaware; and Somerset, Worcester and other counties of Lower, Maryland. The lists in this volume have been carefully copied and verified by the compiler, and it is his sincere hope that it will prove to be of value to those interested in the history and genealogy of Virginia. Tax lists are provided for each year except 1672 and 1673, which are missing.
