An Interesting List: Rent Roll of Virginia 1704-05

I found Alphabetical Rent Roll of Virginia 1704/05 and, glancing through it, found several familiar people.

The numbers come from The Colonial Planters of Virginia by Thomas Jefferson Wertenbaker (Internet Archive).  The appendix contains a county by county version of this rent roll.
