9353. Abstracts of Lower Norfolk County Virginia Deed Book 4 1675-1686
This is a continuation of the books by Michael Schoettle taking Lower Norfolk County closer to the formation of Norfolk County and Princess Anne County in 1691. He started with Will and Deed Book E in 1666, following the works of John Anderson and this is the next deed book. In case you have interest in this area, he also has Deed Book 5 in the works to complete the records of Lower Norfolk County. Since Lower Norfolk County was a jumping off point for northeastern NC, there are a lot of references to Currituck – wills, trading transactions, powers of attorney for those venturing into the eastern shores of Carolina, merchants, traders, etc. There are also references to Nansemond County – all indexed as Mike does a great job in indexing his books. As we all know a lot of our ancestors (including mine) came into the Tidewater area of Virginia and moved south into our counties in northeastern NC, so this might have some good links for your family.

9354. Norfolk (City) Virginia Tax Book 1 1783-1787
This is a new series by Kristina Deluise starting with the first extant tax records of the Borough of Norfolk. The borough later grew into the City of Norfolk. The early tax records (through 1786) give not only info on your ancestor but also on the slaves they owned by name and age (under 16 and over 16). These taxes are broken into 3 books (plus a supplement) due to the changing laws which required different items to be collected. Like Elizabeth Wingo’s tax books on Norfolk County, this insight is valuable to tracking ancestors prior to the start of US census records.
33 pages plus 25 pages of index tracking people across years by Kristina Deluise (2020) $25
9355. Norfolk (City) Virginia Supplemental Tax Book 1 1801-1812
The second book of this series tracks records on tavern keepers, hawkers & peddlers, wholesalers, retailers and more along with the taxes/licenses they paid.

179 pages plus 60 pages of index tracking people across years by Kristina Deluise (2020) $35
9358. Camden Co. NC and Its People in 1860
This book is from the rough draft of the 1860 Camden County census by Jesse C. Bell found in the NC archives. The book lists slaves by name and age. Often it includes who employed the slaves. Other gems in the book: corrections of names comparing what was collected with what ended up in the official census, free blacks who failed to appear on the official census, place or birth which differed from the official census, etc. One example, birth place of Northampton County NC rather than Camden, provided the proof tying two family lines together for our webmaster.
