Hand Drawn Virginia County Historical Maps

by Mike Crabill

Welcome

"Genealogists, ancestor seekers and students of local history are often frustrated by the lack of contemporary sources about the pioneers who first settled their vicinity. Hopefully, these maps, showing the original land patents and grants in three counties in Central Virginia, will address a small portion of that deficiency." Michael Crabill

About The Maps

Three Virginia county maps are available: Albemarle, Amherst and Nelson, spanning the 18th century.

Familiar names such as Carter, Jefferson, Cabell, etc. are interwoven with the likes of Mackilligott, Smith, and Gaudilocks to produce the crazy quilt of land parcels that make up these maps.

Each map comes with an alphabetical listing of the patentees or grantees shown thereon. 

Limited editions, printed on beautiful, acid-free stock. Available in two sizes. All prints sold unframed. The prints are made from hand drawn originals.




Albemarle County

Formed in 1744 from the Western portion of Goochland Co. with a substantial addition from Louisa Co. in 1761, Albemarle was the 'parent' county of Amherst (1761) and Nelson (Amherst in 1807). Over 1200 land parcels are identified on the map and accompanying alphabetical listing.
