S.W. Capon Bridge Land Grants

This is the southwest (lower left) quarter of the U.S.G.S. topographical map of Capon Bridge showing land grants. We appreciate the cooperation of Mr. Galtjo Geertsema who generously supplied the original grant information from his extensive research. We ask your indulgence in any mistakes made while converting this information for web use.

The number following a name indicates acerage; lone three digit numbers indicate the index card number. A letter - hyphen - number entry (eg. H-167) is a N.N. Grant number.
Note: These are approximate maps! Locations are not precise! Colonial surveys never fit correctly on a large map due to the inaccuracy of the instruments and the errors of the surveyors. We appreciate suggestions, corrections and kind comments!

We are working on getting a worksheet for each plat based on the number on the plat. However, in the meantime we are supplying information on the Northern Neck Grants that are available on the Library of Virginia web site. The Library of Virginia N.N. Grant images below may have two pages so check names to see which on is the one you are seeking. Images are very large and may need to be rotated to view properly. However, you may right click on the image and save it to your hard drive for further study. We appreciate the Library of Virginia making these available for everyone's use.
