Thomas Crowder petitions the court saying he has faithfully served his master Henry Hopkins in "slavelike entertainment" and prays to be discharged from his service as he has not been taught anything.

Listed below is the Crowder given name and the county in which he/she is located at the time of the census:

Colonial Virginia Crowder Records PDF Print E-mail
Written by Jennifer Nodwell

I was at the Library of Congress, trying to find the parents of my John W. Crowder b. 1808 in Virginia. Though I was not able to locate the parents on that visit, I did get several good notes and references to early Virginia Crowders. Some day, I am sure I will tie at least one of these Crowders to my kin.

I present these records here in the hopes that 1) I don't lose them while I continue to dig for the Crowders in my tree, and 2) you may find them useful in your own Crowder research. ;)

The freeholders of Mecklenburg County (on 08 APR 1776 and 14 APR 1777) were polled to elect two delegates to serve in the Revolutionary Convention, which was later called the General Assembly. In the "Virginia Genealogist, Volume 26," there is an article listing the names of the freeholders and how they voted. The candidates for delegate were Col. Robert Munford, Mr. Henry Delony, Mr. Joseph Speed, and Col. Bennett Goode. The author of this article makes a strong case that by casting their votes, these men were violating British law and thus acting as Revolutionary Patriots and should thus be eligible for descendants to claim as a Revolutionary patriot for the purpose of membership in DAR or SAR.
