Buckingham Taxes | Gilliams of Virginia

GILLIAMs of Buckingham County Personal Property Tax Lists
Updated March 18, 2016

Background
In 1782 the General Assembly of Virginia enacted a major revision of the tax laws of the commonwealth. The act provided for statewide enumeration on the county level of land and certain personal property. The act created a permanent source of revenue for the operation of government in Virginia.

Various revenue acts passed by the General Assembly established the tax rates and procedures for the collection of land taxes. At first, justices of the local court were designated to collect the taxes. By 1786, the county courts were directed to divide each locality into precincts and to appoint “commissioners” to collect the tax. Taxes were assessed between March and April of each year and were payable by the end of December. The commissioners prepared four “fair and correct” copies of the land tax books. Copies were prepared for the commissioner, county clerk, sheriff, and Auditor of Public Accounts.

Form of Land Tax Records:
The earlier manuscript lists are small booklets that record the names of property owners arranged by the initial letter of the surname. There is a separate volume for each district within the county, if the county was so divided. The district may be identified by the name of the commissioner for that district or by a geographical designation, such as “upper district” or “lower district.” Local militia designations such as “First battalion” or “District of Colonel Clay” were used also. Descriptions of tax districts may sometimes be recorded in the county court order books.
