Andersons of Colonial N. Carolina

TJs papers

Thomas Jefferson loved his history. He would horde whatever he could get his hands on. A nondescript set of papers turned up in his library entitled “1665 – 1676, Foreign Business and Inquisitions”. In those papers were some few but extremely rare accounts from the thrice burned County of Nansemond, Virginia. I ventured in again looking for any missing patents I might use for my Nansemond map. Herein is an index of some names from that time period… I have noted some image (page) numbers just because I have an interest in the Nansemond records. Also is an example from Isle of Wight which shows an example of names shown for the impanelled Juries. It is necessary to search the old fashioned way and the writing is difficult. It does not help that the digital photography is woefully inadequate to zoom in.

This is found at the Library of Congress.

This is the collection.
