The book's content is divided into chapters on the Indian Occupation, Explorations and Early Settlements, Northern Neck Land Titles, Lord Fairfax's Estate, The Seating of Fauquier, Germantown, The Parishes and Their Churches, Organization of the County, Roads and Towns, and the Dissolution of Proprietary. Of particular interest are the author's detailed footnotes, which provide a treasure of information for the researcher.
