More Old Wills, etc. added for Middlesex County

Available to Members of Virginia

Rosegill Plantation was built ca 1650 near Urganna, Virginia. This was the home of Ralph Wormeley, an early emigrant of some means.

Settlers began moving into Middlesex County Virginia about 1640. It quickly became a resourceful area for tobacco planters. In 1687, Richard Wills of Middlesex County was a man of great wealth. His house, which had received several additions from time to time, contained eight rooms and one closet, with an attached kitchen and dairy. Robert Beverley also left England to established his estate in Middlesex and was part of House of Burgesses. When the Revolt of Nathaniel Bacon came along, he helped the Royal Governor to suppress it. Naturally, the genealogist discovers the beautiful old script written in India Ink. We put these images online so that they may be leisurely examined and the characters transcribed in today’s English.
