Record LossEdit

County court records were destroyed by fire in 1869. One plat book survived the fire along with a few colonial tithe lists and all the Personal Property and Land Tax lists beginning 1782. Some lost wills and deeds were rerecorded later.[5] [6]

Lost censuses: 1790, 1800, 1890

Benjamin Weisiger abstracted a valuable source that includes deed, will, and marriage information about Buckingham County, Virginia Genealogy residents:

  • Burned County Data 1809-1848 As Found in the Virginia Contested Election Files. 1986. By Benjamin B. Weisiger. Richmond, VA FHL Book 975.5 P2w.[7]

Elizabeth Shown Mills

  • Anderson of Buckingham: A Case Study in Family Reconstruction Within a ‘Burned County,’ Part 2: Parental Family of William Anderson (1788–1852). By Elizabeth Shown Mills. A study of the Anderson family of Buckingham County demonstrates how she succeeded in reconstructing a burned-county pedigree in this area: The Virginia Genealogist, Vol. 30 (July–September 1986): 174–87, and (October–December 1986): 263–73. Online at: Historic Pathways.

Randy F. McNew Crouse has transcribed every extant personal property tithe and tax list through 1802. This indispensable source contains a vast amount of information on virtually every resident. In two volumes, easily the most complete and valuable publication on this burned county, serves as more than a substitute census, tax records fix time and location more precisely and contain much more information than census records, even when they do exist. For Buckingham, prior to 1820, they do not. "Valuable genealogical conclusions can be deduced from these records, nicknamed "annual censuses," such as: relationships, approximate years of birth, socio-economic status, identification of neighbors, the ability to distinguish between persons of the same name, evidence of land inheritance, years of migration, and years of death."

  • 1736 – 1850 the freshest Advices, Buckingham County, Virginia Genealogical Records from Newspapers, 1736-1850, 2019. ISBN: 978-1-7343481-0-1, Available at: Lulu ($). Randy F. McNew Crouse has transcribed newspaper articles relating to Buckingham County, Virginia. A chronicle of the history and life of Buckingham county up through 1850. The 800 page volume, transcribed from some 140 news periodicals' more than 75,000 issues, contains, in its 2,034 fully transcribed articles, images of a great many of the actual articles and a 56 page, 3-column index with over 16,700 references. There are photographs, illustrations and numerous footnotes, a bibliography, statistics and a source guide. The index is extremely thorough and includes nearly every noun, including watercourses, counties, cities, towns, over 10,000 personal names, (among which are a few thousand named women and children and 522 named slaves,) occupations, taverns, pastimes, entertainment, plantations, geographical features, natural resources, social and political events, agricultural crops, technology, medicine, crime, punishment, weather and more. There are slave sale ads, land sale ads, ads for lost horses and runaway slaves, marriage and death notices, obituaries, chancery cases (some naming entire and extended families over multiple generations,) committee appointments, removal notices and more. This compilation, that bridges the records gap for this burned county until the 1850 census, is an important addition to Buckingham's all too few available historical and genealogical sources. The reader will find a discriminating selection of the “freshest advices” of the sort that slaked the thirst for intelligence and for the amusement of yeomen, tavern patrons, gentry and wealthy planters all. Arguably, the most thorough and complete work of its kind yet produced for a single Virginia county. This valuable resource will be especially appreciated by genealogists, historians, demographers, journalists and sociologists as it offers a glimpse into the life and mores of early America.
  • Indexed images of the Virginia Gazette (1736-1780) are available online through the Colonial Williamsburg website.
