  • Brunswick People Came from Different Parts of Virginia

    By Jeannette Holland Austin

    Jeannette Holland Austin In 1739, one of the largest landowners in the region, William Lucas, owned a plantation near the North Carolina line, 250 acres being the south side of the Meherrin River and 400 acres; also 100 acres on Little Creek. It appears that settlers to Brunswick County had families in Greensville County, Virginnia and other parts. Upon the death of George Brewer in 1744, he owned a plantation on both sides of the Roanoke River, 250 acres. Due to the proximity to North Carolina, the genealogist should also research Warren, Northampton and Halifax Counties in North Carolina. To better clarify the movements of families, it is best to review the deeds and tax digests, comparing them with the probate records of Brunswick and other counties.
