The Vestry Book of Blisland Parish, New Kent and James City Counties

The Vestry Book

Blisland (Blissland) Parish

New Kent and James City County

This Parish book has 306 pages including a 9 page index. It is an account book for the Parish and gives through its transactions, approx dates of death, some children of Parishners, etc.

During almost the entire period covered by this vestry book (1721 1786) Blisland Parish was partly in the present New Kent County and partly in the present James City County, the records of both of which, prior to 1865, have been destroyed. This volume and two of those previously published by the Library Board ("The Vestry Book of Stratton Major Parish, King and Queen County, Virginia, 1729 1783" (1931) and "The Vestry Book of Petsworth Parish, Gloucester County, Virginia, 1677 1793" (1933) ) supply a record for a contiguous area of early Virginia whose local archives have been lost.
