Isle of Wight Co. VA Wills, Estates, Marriages

Isle of Wight County, Virginia Court House Records


Smithfield, Virginiaold court housePictured is Smithfield, Virginia and the old Isle of Wight County court house. History: In 1662, the site of Patesfield was selected for a new town. As an inducement to build on these sites, a lot, half an acre in extent, was granted in fee simple to any one on condition of erecting a residence and store on it, this conveyance being subject to the additional condition that the beneficiary should pay one hundred pounds to the county. In 1698, Robert Scot willed the whole amount of the sums due him by different persons, in the form of tobacco or coin, to indigent persons in Isle of Wight County. The only persons allowed to furnish friendly Indians with match-coats, hoes and axes were such as had been nominated by the county courts and the right of absolute free trade was granted to the Indian population on the Eastern Shore. As a result, certain places were appointed as public marts, to which the Indians who were at peace with the white were invited to come at a specified time. These marts were situated in Henrico, Isle of Wight, New Kent, Rappahannock, Lancaster, Stafford, Accomack and Northampton Counties.
