Overview:
The form of Virginia personal property tax records varies from manuscript lists created in the eighteenth century to modern, computer-generated lists and lists produced directly on microfilm. The earlier manuscript lists are small booklets, arranged by the initial letter of the surname, that record the names of property owners. There is a separate list for each district within the county, if the county was so divided . The district may be identified by the name of the tax commissioner for that district or by a geographical designation such as "upper district" or "lower district." Local militia designations also were also used, such as "First battalion" or "District of Colonel Moody."

Information recorded in Virginia personal property tax records changed gradually from 1782 to 1865. The early laws required the tax commissioner in each district to record in "a fair alphabetical list" the names of the person chargeable with the tax, the names of white male tithables over the age of 21, the number of white male tithables between 16 and 21, the number of slaves both above and below 16, various types of animals such as horses and cattle, carriage wheels, ordinary licenses, and even billiard tables. Free Negroes are listed by name and often are denoted in the list as "free" or "FN."

Later laws required additional descriptive information. The amount of tax due was reported in pounds, shillings and pence on the early tax lists. Amounts were reported in dollars and cents by 1810.
