SUSSEX COUNTY, VIRGINIA

VAUGHAN ROSTER


The within document is an attempt to list every Vaughan that appears in Sussex County, Virginia records prior to 1850, with a general reference to the records wherein they appear. An attempt has been made to separate those with the same given name where possible. Needless to say there is a measure of subjectivity involved, especially if the given name is very common (i.e. James, John, William). The following table list in excess of 35 Vaughan males or females in Sussex County, VA prior to 1850.


The following records are NOT included in this table:

•Land Tax 1811-1850

•Some Deed Books


Explanation

•Given Name. The personal tax digests often revealed the name of the father. In the early years a taxpayer would list sons aged 16 years or older.

•Deed Column. The larger font date (or date range) are dates in which a person appears in a deed (in any capacity). The smaller font is a summary of land bought or sold.

•Tax. Up to three ranges of years may be in a given row. The first being years taxes were paid by the father; the second being years paid by the person directly; and the third being years paid by the estate of the person.


The Personal Tax Digests are very informative as to young men who come of age and then leave the area prior to appearing in any other record.
