Botetourt County, located in the lower end of the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, was created in 1770 from lands that were in Augusta County originally. This county was named for Norborne Berkeley, Baron de Botetourt or as he was commonly called, Lord Botetourt. At the time of the creation of this county, the lands went far beyond the Shenandoah Valley as Augusta County contained over seven states within its boundary when it was created and Botetourt County took almost one-third of these lands. Remember this was the frontier for the Colony of Virginia at the time and immigrants were rushing into the vacant lands that were now available. Many of the early settlers were either German or Scot-Irish in their background. In reading the listing of names remember that name spelling was not standardized at the time but were spelled the way the tax collector heard them. You might want to sound them out to find which is your ancestor. This listing shows the number of white polls in the household which means that number reflects the number of men 18-21 years of age. Also given are the number of slaves owned by the head of the household whose name is given.
“Baine, Alexander 1 - 35" This means that Alexander Baine had one white poll and 35 slaves in this household.
