When the parishes were formed by the General Assembly of Virginia, the Vestries were assigned some of the civil administrative functions all such civil functions were official in nature and the records of actions taken were recorded in the vestry books. Such records contained in the Vestry Book contained among other things such as: upkeep of bastard children; payment for the upkeep of the ferry; prosecution of fornicators; appointment of road work crews; apprentice young people to others in the parish for training in crafts or other livelihoods; providing clothing, food, shelter for the poor and elderly; burial of the dead and many, many other similar duties. But this book is unique as well as double purpose in that it contains the minutes of the vestry and also the order of processing. The later was the surveying of land to attempt to eliminate lawsuits over boundary lines, This book is filled with early inhabitants. In the last portion of this book are NOTES from the author. These notes contain genealogies of some 30 founding families and individuals.
