"The Lists of Inhabitants, 1782-1785, provide lists for thirty-nine counties and the town of Williamsburg, .... Information found in the lists for 1782 and 1783 include the name of the head of the household, the number of white inhabitants, and the number of slaves, while the lists for 1784 and 1785 include the heads of households, the number of whites, and the numbers of dwelling houses and 'outhouses'. -- Lists of inhabitants, p. 1-2

The lists were created by Virginia by four acts passed by the General Assembly. The county courts were to appoint justices to make lists of people in their precincts. The county court clerks were to collect the lists and send them to the Governor. The premise for the creation of these lists was taxation but they have been used as a census.

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on FamilySearch.org include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.
