Nansemond County, Virginia, located on the coast was created in 1642/3 but was merged with Suffork, Virginia in 1974. This 1810 tax list replaces the information that would have been found in the 1810 census which is not available. This 1815 tax list is the earliest one available for Nansemond in its complete form. The major portion of the information found here is numerical answers to questions ask by the tax collector: 1] Number of white males over 16 years of age? 2] Number of slaves over 12 years of age? 3] Number of horses, mules and asses? 4] Number of cattle? 5] Other taxable items. This latter question is usually spelled out in detail and reveals a great deal about the wealth of the family and most interesting.

Examples from this volume:

“Bevan, Thomas - 1-8-3-14 - one house in the country valued at $600.00. One clock, wooden works without a case. One chest of drawers, with or without a desk, not of mahogany. One two wheeled carriage valued at $85.00. One celeret [sic - cellaret] or sideboard, with doors or drawers valued at less that $100.00. One looking glass between 2 & 3 feet in size. One cut glass decanter, pitcher, bowl, goblet, wash basin, stand or salver.”
“Butler, Stephen - 1-1-1-0 - One silver, gilt, or pinchbeck watch. One clock, wooden works, without a case.”
