1787 Tax Lists

Personal Property Tax Lists For The Year 1787, by Netti Schreiner-Yantis and Florene Speakman Love, Genealogical Books in Print, Springfield, Virginia, 1987
-- thanks to Judy Pons for going to the trouble to send this

Column One – Number of white males above 16 and under 21
Column Two – Blacks above 16
Column Three – Blacks under 16
Column Fours – Horses, mares, colts & mules
Column Five – Cattle

“The lists are given twice in the individual county books – once in the original order, then again rearranged by the date on which the commissioner had visited each taxpayer.  This second list makes it possible to tell who the neighbors were since it appears evident that the commissioner visited those living in the same vicinity on the same day.”

   ‘Reasons for being exempt included being a woman; being old and infirm; and an occupation of clergyman or professor.  Certain political jobs – from constable (at the county level) to governor (at the state level) made one exempt.  White males sixteen to twenty one were subject to a county parish tithe, but not to the state poll tax.  Indians were exempt.  Levy free and not tithable are synonymous.  However, when the tax commissioner wrote levy free, he probably meant the person had been legally exempted from paying the tax by the county court.  Any time a person’s name did not appear in the column to be counted as a poll, we have indicated this by inserting not tithable in the notes.  Some of these were no doubt levy free because of court orders, while others were exempt from the poll for other reasons. ‘
