Virginia 1704 Quit Rent Rolls

BURGESSES IN THE 1704
VIRGINIA QUIT RENT ROLLS

Note: Between 1920-26 The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography published the 1704 quit rent rolls of Virginia. These included lists of the individuals charged for land taxes in all of the counties of Virginia save those belonging to the Northern Neck Proprietorship (Lancaster, Northumberland, Westmoreland, Richmond, and Stafford Cos.). Also excluded were the inhabitants of the then newly-founded Huguenot town of Manakin. The lists simply give the names of those paying the quit rent (one shilling for every fifty acres of land), and the numbers of acres assessed.
