Essex Co. VA Genealogy Records #virginiapioneersnet

Essex County, Virginia Genealogy, Wills, Estates, Marriages


Wares Warf BeachEssex County was created in 1692 from Rappahannock County and was probably named after the Earl of Essex. Henry Awbry and William Moseley were appointed by the justices of Essex in 1693 to select a site for the new court-house rendered necessary by the recent creation of the county. They were empowered to purchase the spot which should be chosen by them. The construction was commenced in December of 1693 and the first meeting was held during the October term of court. In the levy for November, nine thousand pounds of tobacco were allowed the contractor, Daniel Deskin but until the court-house was finished, the amount was to remain in the hands of the sheriff. Essex had previously formed a part of Rappahannock County, and what was known as the southside court-house had stood within its confines. Deskin was permitted to take all the material from the old building which he thought would be serviceable in the construction of the new; and after it was completed and paid for, he was placed in permanent charge.
