An Early Tithable List

Submitted by William H. Rice

 

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following list of tithables taken in Augusta County in 1777 covers much of what is now Pendleton County West Virginia. It is the most detailed of the early lists we have seen. As it not only gives the number of tithables in each household, but also the number of acres owned. Bill Rice went to the Virginia State Archives at Richmond and obtained the list and we extend our thanks to him for providing it for publication.

 

A list of the Tithables of Capt. Robert Davis's Company taken 10th September 1777.
