Norfolk County was created as a shire in 1634 and remained by that indication until 1691 and was named for Norfolk County in England by Adam Thoroughgood who had migrated from that county in England. This is one of the rare quit rent listings found for these early periods. A quit rent was in essence the property tax of the day amounting to one shilling per fifty acres of land a person owned. The tax money was collected by the Sheriff and eventually came back to the area for support of the needs of that area.

 

Example

“Dalley, Henry - 1524 acres”
