HAMPSHIRE COUNTY - 1782
The names on
these lists were taken from microfilm of the early Census Records of
Hampshire County. Microfilm relating to these names is available at
the National Archives in Washington, DC, which has been shown as the
source of material for all names. The first and second Census records
for Virginia were lost as a result of the War of 1812. Certain State
of Virginia enumerations taken by the early Justices during the years
1782 and 1784 for Hampshire County have been used in lieu of the 1790
and 1800 Census.
On the list for 1782, the only information given other than the name of Head of Family was one total figure in a column for whites and another column for total number of blacks.
The last column is a code column that gives the name of the justice who recorded the name of the Head of Family and other data on the manuscript for record purposes.
