The work at hand consists of abstracts of land patents found in two ancient patent books pertaining to these counties in the southeastern corner of Virginia. Each abstract typically gives the date of the record, name of the patentee, size and geographical location of the claim, and, frequently, the names of persons whose land abutted the patent or the names of persons whom the patentee had transported to Virginia as headrights.
