Essex County, located on the eastern shore of Virginia, was created in 1692 out of the old Rappahannock Co., VA and named probably for the Earl of Essex. These Quit Rents were the tax paid by the land owners to the crown each year. The money collected was normally handed over to the colony for the operation of that territory. The fee was one shilling for every 50 acres of land the person owned. This does not sound like much, except some of these persons owned thousands of acres. This list is a great source for the cataloging of those living in the area at the time. The 1704 list is the only one that has survived for the Colony of Virginia during the period of the crown.

“Abbott, William - 150 acres”
