Also contained in the collection is information which was compiled by Augusta B. Fothergill (Augusta Bridgland Middleton Fothergill, 1876-1965) and Alice L. Ingram (Alice Littlepage Ingram, 1891-1982).

Every effort was made during processing of the collection to maintain the original order of the materials. In some cases, information amassed by all three individuals can be found in the same folder.

Summary              The family research files contain genealogical notes abstracted from court records, including deed books, order books, will books and marriage records. There is a substanial amount of information on the Blow, Bolling, Drummond, Harrison, Jones, Lee, Lewis, Moseley, Poythress, Smith and Willis families. Families researched are from all over Virginia, but there is a particular emphasis on those from Amelia, Brunswick, Dinwiddie, Lunenburg, Nottoway, Prince George and

Sussex Counties. The majority of this group of records were compiled by Augusta B. Fothergill.

Summary              The subject files and county research notes also include abstracts from court records, as well as correspondence, clippings, tombstone inscriptions, pedigree charts and published works. This group of records is largely the work of R. Bolling Batte.

Summary              The Batte files contain information on the descendants of Captain John Batte who came to Virginia from Oakwell Hall, Yorkshire, England in 1643. Included is correspondence, abstracts, source material received from other individuals, as well as various forms of a manuscript on the Batte family, which R.

Summary              The Jones files contain information compiled by Augusta B. Fothergill in the course of researching her book PETER JONES AND RICHARD JONES GENEALOGIES, published in 1924. They include court record abstracts, Bible records, correspondence, notes from other individuals and manuscript drafts.

Summary              The biographical card files contain more than thirty thousand cards, each representing an individual.

Codes are used on the right end of each line to

indicate sources. On the backs of the cards appear extracts from pertinent documents, tombstone inscriptions, obituary notices and a listing of the subject’s children.

Summary              There is also an extensive alphabetical subject index to the VIRGINIA CAVALCADE. At the end of the card files is an index to the sources which were used in the compilation of the biographical card files. The canary yellow cards give the author of the source and are filed alphabetically. The cherry cards give the subject of the source and are also filed alphabetically. Also included are miscellaneous index cards to sources, counties, cities, family Bibles, cemetery

records, census lists, marriage records, newspapers, other published sources, parish registers and wills which were used in the compilation of the card files. Finally, there is a title/subject card index covering articles appearing in CIVIL WAR TIMES ILLUSTRATED. All of the card files are available on microfilm (Misc. Reels 1952-2029).

Material             10 leaves.

Summary              Letter, 1 August 1771, from Richard Bland (1710-1776) to Thomas Adams (1730-1788) of New Kent County and Richmond, Virginia, discussing the change of opinion of the tobacco merchants of Virginia concerning treasury notes, and legislation passed by the House of Burgesses reflecting that change. Bland also comments on severe flooding along the rivers which destroyed much of the tobacco in public warehouses and how this flooding changed the merchants’ viewpoint. Bland

complains of the efforts of Anglican minister James Horrocks (1734-1772), of Williamsburg, Virginia, to work for the establishment of an American Episcopate, which Bland opposes. Bland comments on the popularity of the late governor, Norborne Berkeley, Baron de Botetourt (1717-1770), and efforts for a statue of him to be made, and he remarks on the next governor of the Virginia colony, John Murray, Earl of Dunmore (1732-1809). Bland also complains about Virginia’s

agent in England.

Biog./Hist. Note     Richard Bland was born 6 May 1710 in Prince George County, Virginia, to Richard Bland (1665-1720) and Elizabeth Randolph Bland (1685-1720). Educated by tutors growing up, Bland attended the College of Wiliam and Mary. He was a prosperous planter and a successful lawyer. In 1742 he was elected to the House of Burgesses and served until his death thirty-four years later. Bland was a strong advocate of the colonial legislature as the ultimate governing body for a

colony’s internal matters. He opposed the establishment of an American bishopric by the Church of England, arguing that the local vestries could better handle parish needs. He attended the first and second Continental Congresses, leaving the latter in 1775 due to his health. Bland returned to Virginia and continued as a member of the House of Burgesses until his death in Williamsburg, Virginia, 26 October 1776. Bland was buried at the family home at Jordan’s Point

in Prince George County. He married first Ann Poythress (d. 1758) 29 March 1730, and they had twelve children. He married second Martha Macon Massie (d. 1759) 1 January 1759, and he married third Elizabeth Blair Bolling (d. 1775).

Summary              These colonial papers are a collection of loose papers more closely connected by age than by any other single factor that consist largely of records kept by the clerk of the colonial council, House of Burgesses, the governor and other officials, relating to county as well as colony-wide government. The records of the colonial government have, for the most part, been destroyed by wars, fires, and early neglect. This collection of loose colonial papers is arranged in

chronological order, in fifty-three folders. The collection consists of petitions to the governor or House of Burgesses, court records, orders, summonses, patents, accounts, proceedings, returns, grants, proclamations, addresses, certificates and correspondence.

Biog./Hist. Note     The history of Virginia’s colonial government is divided into two significant phases by the date of May 24, 1624, when the charter of the Virginia Company of London was revoked by the crown. Prior to that date the colony had been run as a private corporation with final authority resting in the hands of the stockholders; afterwards, it was a royal colony with all the trappings and institutions of government that such a status required. The Grand Assembly, begun in

1619, evolved into the House of Burgesses by 1642, governors and lieutenant governors were sent to the colony as the king’s viceroys, regular courts were established, and a complex system of government was developed to lead and protect the growing colony.
