Nansemond County Personal Property Tax List

[Note: The clerk wrote, for example, "James of Ash" instead of James Ash, perhaps thinking James was a slave of a member of the Ash family. However, many such families were not recently freed slaves, but rather families that had been free for generations--either descendants of white women or descendants of slaves freed before the 1723 law which restricted manumissions].
