Middlesex County was created in 1669 from Lancaster County, VA. It did suffer some loss of legal records but did not as the result of the Civil War. In preparing this book the author expended great care in following the original book in every eccentricity of spelling and abbreviation and in all mistakes. The VESTRY BOOK itself contains the names of approximately 8,000 individuals either as Vestry members or as those who had been appointed to procession land of property owners; apprentice young people to other in the parish for training in crafts or livelihoods; binding out young slaves for training; clothing and feeding and general care and welfare of the poor in their midst.
