Chuckatuck began in Nansemond County about 1673; in 1767 the name was changed to Western Branch Monthly Meeting which in turn was replaced in 1846 by Somerton Monthly Meeting of Suffolk City. Members of this branch came from Nansemond, Norfolk, Isle of Wight, Dinwiddie, and Surry counties.

Surry Monthly Meeting started about 1708 and changed its name in 1765 to Blackwater Monthly Meeting. Its membership covered Surry, Sussex, Prince George, Southampton, Isle of Wight, and Dinwiddie. Pagan Creek Meeting discontinued in 1792 and joined the Blackwater Meeting.

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.
