Early Virginia Immigrants, 1623-1666

10/07/2016

It’s difficult to find records (let alone records online) for ancestors pre-1700s unless they were a person of note and were granted a land patent, and many of us are not that lucky. Early Virginia Immigrants, 1623-1666 by George Cabel Greer, 1912 (393 pgs.) tried to bridge that gap by brute force. He lists “nearly twenty-five thousand” names in alphabetical order of men who immigrated to Virginia during its earliest time, but who were not the original land grantees. It’s a useful list in that if you find a name on the list that is of interest, you can then contact the Land Office in Richmond, VA and request more information. Digitized by Google Books.
