1763 tithe record Hanover County with Mary Chisholm adj to Thomas Christmas

1766 death of John Chisholm of Hanover County, Virginia – The collection includes account books from Hanover and York counties, Va., 1727-1775, and from Frederick’s Hall Plantation in Louisa County, Va., 1849-1862. The relationship, if any, between the former and the latter is unclear. There is also a letter copybook, 1757-1775, of Major John Snelson, probably a descendant of Elizabeth Snelson (fl. 1727-1728). Snelson wrote chiefly to Edward Harford, Jr., of England about tobacco shipments and imported merchandise. The relationship between this volume and the others is also unclear. Colonial-era merchants represented in ledgers include Colonel John Chisolm (d. 1766), A. Gordon (fl. 1750-1751), and William Montgomery (fl. 1751), all of Hanover County. Activities documented in these ledgers include tobacco sales and mining and mineral export, the daily work of merchants, and importing operations. Activities documented in the antebellum ledgers from Frederick’s Hall include lumber production, manufacture and sale of shoes, tobacco production and trade, and merchandizing. There is also some information on wages for slaves and free laborers. Sheet music for an 1854 polka is also included. Note: This collection was originally divided into parts A and B. The collection has been rearranged chronologically.

1800 Apr 19 – John Anderson’s Will (Abstract). Hanover County, Virginia.
ANDERSON, JOHN, of Hanover County. Will dated 19 April 1800. “In the name of God amen. I, John Anderson of Hanover County (Taylors Creek) being in perfect health and sound memory of mind, JL JLyet considering the brevity of this frail and transitory life, the certainty of death, and the uncertainty of the manner, do make and ordain this to be my last will and testament in manner and form following.
… Imprimis: I give my soule to God that gave it, hoping through the merits of my redeemer Jesus to receive full pardon of all my sins. Amen! Blessed be God.
… Next I commit my body to earth from whence it was taken in full assurance that it may be in the same manner as my beloved wife was,
… and as to my estate both real and personal I dispose of it in manner and form following;
… ” Devises to his daughter Patsey A. Anderson 100 acres, the lower part, of land in Louisa County purchased of Joseph Hawkins, also two slaves, some live-stock, furniture and provisions. She being in “a single state” loans to her for life two rooms in the west end of his house called the hall and study, all out-houses, one-fourth of enclosed land for cultivation and pasturage, and one-fourth of all fruits from orchard. “I also lend her the use of Shadrack during her being in a single state, but should she marry or die then my will and desire is that Shadrack shall be at liberty and fully free in the same manner that free born persons are.” Should she die unmarried and without lawful issue the estate given her shall return to his estate for equal division among all his children.
… To his son John B. Anderson the plantation where he now lives, his desk, folding table and couch, and slaves.
… To his daughter Sally Pulliam he gives Fifty Lbs. current money.
… To daughter Susannah A. Johnson “all my right and interest in the tract of land my son Harmond died possessed of in South Carolina, Union County, also my right and interest in the negro woman Pegg and her present and future increase, that was my son Harmon’s, also Five Lbs. current money of Virginia.”

1832 October – Pension Application of Walter Chisholme S9169 VA
Transcribed and annotated by C. Leon Harris
Virginia/ Hanover County
On this [blank] day of October 1832 personally appeared in open court before the court of the county of Hanover now sitting Walter Chisholme a resident of the said county and state aged on hundred years who being first duly sworn according to law, doth on his oath make the following declaration in order to obtain the benefit of the act of congress passed June 7 th 1832.
……
That he was born in the county of Hanover in the same neighbourhood where he now resides as well as he can recollect on the 19th of April 1732 having seen a family register many years ago in which it was so stated – but that register is now lost. That when the revolutionary war broke out he was Ensign in Capt Anderson’s Company of Hanover Militia. That he was very frequently drafted and never hired a substitute except once [James Hall, pension application S6946]. That owing to his great age his recollection of the events of that period is very obscure and that consequently he cannot recollect the number of tours precisely, or the officers under whom he served.
That he remembers serving under Captains Anderson and [Francis] Underwood Colonels Symme [possibly Charles Simms] and [William] Dandridge and Generals Lafayette Muhlenburgs [sic: Peter Muhlenberg] and [Thomas] Nelson –
That several times during his service he crossed James River at the Manacin town [sic: Manakin] and marched into the lower country of Virginia into the neighbourhood of Williamsburg and York and
That he was in the retreat under Lafayette through Henrico Hanover Sopsylvania [sic: Spotsylvania] Orange Culpeper and Louisa Counties and was at the cutting of the road called the Marquiss Road [sic: Marquis Road, 12-14 Jun 1781] through Louisa & Albamarle counties.
He recollects being in no battle.
That to the best of his recollection he served at least six tours and that he was always an Ensign and his service continued at least eight months.

HANOVER COUNTY, VIRGINIA RENT ROLLS 1763

The following is the Hanover County, Virginia rent roll list that is commonly called “Rent Roll of Hanover County, Virginia, 1753-1763”.  In reality it is just 1763’s rent roll list that has a few notations about prior years within the 1763 list.  I ordered the information from the noted periodical anticipating it would have several years of rent-rolls – unfortuanately not – it only has the following information transcribed.

The list can be found on Ancestry.com here: Ancestry.com. UK, American Loyalist Claims, 1776-1835 [database on-line]. Provo, UT, USA: Ancestry.com Operations, Inc., 2013.
