Most VA counties on the James River have burned records so very few books have been published. Some books on James City Co and Isle of Wight Co are useful to Surry Co families when you trace your folks further back in time. People tend to forget that the settlers of Jamestown moved first to Isle of Wight and Surry Co just across the river. This is where John Rolfe's land was.

Register of Albemarle Parish, Surry and Sussex Counties 1739-1788, written by the National Society of Colonial Dames of America.
