The act establishing the county of Albemarle was passed by the Virginia Legislature in September 1744, and ordained its existence to begin from the first of January, 1745. This work consists of a history of Albemarle County from its first settlement in approximately 1727, to the mid-1800s, and includes many of the numerous land patents awarded to individual settlers in the early years, the various mergers of surrounding counties, and continues with discussions of aspects of society, industries and commercial activities. Approximately seventy percent of this volume is devoted to the family histories of roughly 200 or more early settlers. Also included are several sections which contain a list of deaths from 1744 to 1849; Militia Rolls; Petitions; lists of various officials; and residents to who immigrated to other states and the states to which they removed.
