a research tidbit for Nansemond

with one comment

It is well known the records for Nansemond have burned early and often… so I try to note where I find any morsels of history to pass on to hungry researchers. This is an interesting example… noted herein is that an early burning of the records was “at the house of Christopher Jackson”. Notes were passed on to what was being done to “ease the suffering” of the good folks of Nansemond in response to the unfortunate event. I was Googling around for “Shivers” clues and up pops this book from 1752 or so… a copy of which can be purchased for a mere $4,500.

The book is called “The acts of Assembly, now in force, in the colony of Virginia”

Amazingly… it is in a searchable format… there seems to be numerous sources. Very cool.
