Fauquier During The Proprietorship, A Chronicle of the Colonization and Organization of a Northern Neck County [Virginia], H. C. Groome


2 Fauquier During The Proprietorship, A Chronicle of the Colonization and Organization of a Northern Neck County [Virginia]
H. C. Groome
(1927), 2007, paper, index, 270 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
Mr. Groome addresses the complexity of the Proprietor/tenant relationship (a feudal system of land grants) in the establishment of the county of Fauquier in the territory between the Rappahannock and Potomac, historically known as the Northern Neck. He begins the book with Captain John Smith’s journeys into the Indian occupied territory and the early exploration and settlement of the area. Much of the early history of the land grant system revolves around a struggle for control between the Virginia Company and King James I, and later Charles I, of England. Col. Robert Carter played an important role in the Northern Neck Agency in assigning land grants and settling the area despite the controversy over who had the actual right to assign these grants. Proprietorship eventually passed to Lord Thomas Fairfax who asserted his authority as Proprietor, managed to define the disputed boundaries of the Northern Neck and actively engaged in the work of colonization. The first half of the book is an important collection of early records of Fauquier County consisting of abstracts and land grants and patents for land from 1600-1800. Mr. Groome also provides extensive footnotes identifying many of the early settlers and their families. The second half of the book chronicles the religious and political organization of the county and the eventual dissolution of the proprietorship. A full name and subject index provides easy access to information.

Lee Moffett

Packed with names and events, the passages prove as entertaining as they are informative. The courthouse, the jail, the theater, the library, the surrounding stores: each has its own distinctive story to tell. Also in these pages can be found tales of the people: everyday life, carnivals and parades, concerts, sermons, leisurely strolls, other social and business events. Sources are well-documented; a section toward the book's end includes a partial list of Court House Square properties and their uses, from the late 18th century through the 1990s. A 1921 map of Warrenton, deed book maps, and many photos and illustrations of buildings on Court House Square further enrich the text. The everyname plus subject index will make data retrieval a snap. Originally published in 1988, this revised edition contains a new section on Court House Square history from 1987 to 1995."What has happened to the many, many people who walked along Court House Square or lived and worked in its neighborhoods? How many ghosts walk the streets on dark nights? How have all the different businesses changed the face of The Square and Main Street? And, how is it still changing?" These are just some of the questions posed and answered by this comprehensive work. Includes illustrations and maps.

Fauquier County [Virginia] Tombstone Inscriptions, Volumes 1 and 2, Nancy Baird, Carol Jordan and Joseph Scherer


15 Fauquier County [Virginia] Tombstone Inscriptions, Volumes 1 and 2
Nancy Baird, Carol Jordan and Joseph Scherer
(2000), 2004, 8˝x11, paper, index, 2 vols., 540 pp, Heritage Books
Hundreds of cemeteries have been surveyed over a period of several decades in a mammoth effort to record these tombstone inscriptions, the dates of which span nearly three centuries of Virginia history. The inscriptions in these volumes are presented just as they appear on the tombstones. In cases where only a fieldstone marker was used, the authors have made every effort to consult other sources to identify the individual interred and have noted the individual's name. This saves the genealogist from wasting energy searching for a non-existent inscription. A surname index makes it easy to locate family plots. Within each volume, cemeteries are listed in alphabetical order, A-Z; names within the cemetery are listed in the order in which they were recorded. (Families are frequently grouped together.) Cemeteries that exclusively hold the remains of black families are so designated in the name of the cemetery. Directions are provided to the location of each cemetery.
