Gertrude E. Gray. Hardcover red with gilt lettering on front and spine, originally published in 1988 and reprinted here in 1997, as new, Index, 282 pp. The publisher writes, This second volume in the series (see also Item 2315) has abstracts of all of the grants from 1742 to 1775, a period that saw the formation and settlement of Frederick, Fairfax, Culpeper, Loudoun, Fauquier, and Dunmore (changed in 1778 to Shenandoah) counties in Virginia, and Hampshire and Berkeley counties now in West Virginia. The abstracts show grant book designation, page number, name of grantee, place of residence (if given), number of acres in grant, location of grant, surveyor, adjoining land owners, and date the grant was issued. Altogether, in more than 4,000 abstracts, about 7,500 early Virginia residents are cited, all of them listed in the index. [2316-G]
