QUIT RENT ROLLS

OF KING WILLIAM COUNTY 1704


Charles Yancey is below recorded as owning land in King William County in 1704. One must note, however, that by 1711 Charles Yancey was found in St Pauls parish in New Kent County, from which Hanover county was formed in 1720. Whether Charles Yancey actually moved from King William County to New Kent (later Hanover) OR whether there were slight boundary changes of the counties which would have changed his residency from King William to New Kent is unclear. It should also be noted that various families which the Yanceys are associated with - are recorded on the 1704 Quit Rent Rolls as living in New Kent County. Also note entry for Lewis Davis (For which Lewis Davis Yancey may have been named for.
