Listing of All Gloucester Land Grants/Patents

The Library of Virginia(LVA)has a new online searchable digital database which I have used to prepare listings of all Land Grants and Patents for land in Gloucester County. I have prepared listings sorted by Grantee name and by year recorded. Data presented for each grant/patent is Grantee name, date, acres and location description.

These listings span 1628-1849 and include 673 grants/patents, 441 different surnames and a total of almost 50,000 acres (some double counting).

The two listings are in Microsoft Word format and each one is just under 1 MB file size. I also have a Microsoft Excel version.

I'll be glad to send the listings free to anyone who requests them. E Mail requests to
