Fincastle County Entries
line


Fincastle County was formed from Botetourt County in 1772; it was the westernmost county in Virginia and included all of what is now Kentucky and parts of Virginia and West Virginia that were west of the Kanawaha and New rivers. In December 1773, Governor Dunmore announced that those who had military warrants awarded for service in the French and Indian War would be allowed to claim land in this area.

The original land entries for Fincastle County, Virginia, are presently found in the Montgomery County, Virginia, Courthouse. The first entry is dated 15 December 1773 and the entries continue through 17 August 1776. At first all the entries were by virtue of the military warrants issued by Lord Dunmore for service in the French and Indian War. After December 1775 entries were allowed on preemptions. These generally consisted of several 400-acre tracts per man and were entered with a disclaimer that the claimant had "produced memorandums of [a certain number of] entries of land on Western Waters and demanded that they might be entered in my book which hath been complied with, provided the same be legal, but should it appear otherwise, there is no advantage to be taken of the surveyor." In other words, these preemption claims were allowed to be entered on the county entry book in spite of the suspicion by the county surveyor that such entries were illegal. John Floyd, James Douglas, and Isaac Hite, the deputy surveyors who worked in Kentucky, also had preemption claims but never entered them in Fincastle County.

In the original records, the entries are listed chronologically. The date is followed by the name of the person, the amount of land, the location, and usually his authority to make an entry. A typical entry reads:

January 1, 1774: Walter Cunningham, Dunmore's warrant, 1000 acres at the confluence of Harwoods [Harrods Creek] with the Ohio on the southeast side of the Ohio and said creek.

A careful comparison of these entries with the Fincastle County surveys reveals that some of them were made after the surveys had been completed, which is somewhat unconventional. However, the trip to Kentucky was long and sometimes dangerous, so if the holder of a warrant instructed the surveyors to "do the best you can for me," then it would not make much sense to enter the land until after the surveyor had returned. It would even appear that after the Revolutionary War began, many of the men with military warrants became somewhat careless about making entries at all and relied upon their survey to uphold their claims. For example, John Floyd purchased the military warrant of John Draper, which he had surveyed on the Elkhorn and withdrew the entry even though it had never been entered.

These entries have been published by Mary B. and F.B. Kegle in Early Adventures on the Western Waters (2 vols.; Orange, Virginia: Green Publishers, 1980), II, 3-21. Their list was copied directly from the entry book and is therefore in chronological order. There is no special index for these entries, which were located in all parts of Fincastle County.

Of the 300,940 acres that were entered, 286,090 (ninety-eight percent) were in the present bounds of Kentucky and the remainder in either present-day Virginia or West Virginia. These entries also show that many people who made entries were not veterans of the French and Indian War but their heirs or assignees. There were also a number of entries that were withdrawn after they had been made and entered at other locations. Sometimes the entries show the rank of the person making an entry on a military warrant.

The following list gives the names of the men making the entries in alphabetical order. The number of the entry also gives the date of the entry. For example, an entry numbered 74.08.13.06 indicates that it was made in 1774 in the eighth month (August) on the thirteenth day. The last two digits of the number, 06, indicate that it was the sixth entry made on that day. An asterisk (*) following an entry number indicates that the location of an earlier entry was withdrawn and re-entered or that part of the entry was withdrawn. The symbol (€¡) indicates that the entry was withdrawn and not re-entered at that time.

Where the records show that the entries were by preemption, the number is followed by a small triangle (?). However, there were many 400-acre entries that appear to have been made on preemptions since there was no record of these men having military warrants; but unless the original documents specifically indicate by which method they were entered, they are not marked with the triangle.

In some cases the person who made the entry was not the original warrant holder; thus to include all the original warrant holders alphabetically, a second list is required. The second list contains the name of the original warrant holder, the person making the entry, and the date/number, which allows the reader to refer to this name on the first list for additional information, such as location and size of warrant. For example, in the first list one may find that Benjamin Logan had made an entry for 200 acres in Rich Valley, Virginia, as the assignee of William Bell. William Bell is also shown as the previous owner on the second list, and his name is followed by Benjamin Logan and the date/number 74.05.07.01. In the few cases where there are more than one previous owner, the symbol (§) is used to designate the intermeate assignee. When the original warrant holder also made the entry, his name is omitted from the second list. The page numbers given in the last column are to the Fincastle Entry Book.


The number of the entry also gives the date of the entry.
For example, an entry numbered 74.08.13.06 indicates that it was made in 1774 in the eighth month (August) on the thirteenth day. The last two digits of the number, 06, indicate that it was the sixth entry made on that day.
