Norfolk County Personal Property Tax Lists
1791 - 1807, Grouped by Name

Transcribed by Lewis W. Griffin, Jr. from
LDS
Family History Library US/CAN Film 1870175

The following records help replace the 1790 and 1800 censuses for Norfolk County, both of which are lost. All Culpepper males age 16 or over, residing in the county during 1791 - 1807 are listed below. In some few cases, females are listed, if they had a male over 16 residing in their home, or if they owned a horse, mare, or colt. Some records mention slaves, as well, although not by name. See http://www.lva.lib.va.us/pubserv/vanotes/vanotes11.htm for a more detailed account of these records, which are available on paper from 1782 to 1930, and on LDS microfilm from 1782 to 1850.

Warren Culpepper Note: I have also added to the list the 1782 census records provided by Bill Russell. The assignment to a particular individual is my own best guess.

John Culpepper. This writer is reluctant to attempt to identify all of the John Culpeppers without more research. These tax records have been grouped under individuals and over years by this writer, and my choices as to which tax record applied to which John, may not necessarily be correct. Serious researchers should consult the original records.

bullet

Mary Culpepper #2 (possible widow of Benjamin or Sion)

Robert Culpepper. This writer is reluctant to attempt to identify all of the Robert Culpeppers without more research. These tax records have been grouped under individuals and over years by this writer, and my choices as to which tax record applied to which Robert, may not necessarily be correct. Serious researchers should consult the original records.

bullet

Robert Culpepper #1 (#185, abt. 1775 - bef. 1822, son of Thomas # 698, grandson of William #686, great-grandson of Thomas, #683)
1782 three whites and no blacks
1791 - 1796 one male over 16 and one horse
1798 one male over 16 and no horse
   (listed as “Robert Senr.”)
   [but Robert #185 does not have a son named Robert]

1799 one male over 16 and one horse
   (listed “Robert son Jos.”)
   [WLC: Does this mean son of Joseph?]

1800 one male over 16 and no horse
1801 one male over 16 and no horse
   (listed as Robert “W. B.” or West Branch of the Elizabeth River)
   [but Robert #185 was of Deep Creek, not West Branch]
   [Robert Jr #698 was of West Branch, so this would be one of his descendants]
1802 - 1807 one male over 16 and one horse (no designation)

bullet

Robert Culpepper Junr. #2
1797 - 1799 one male over 16 and one horse
   (listed as “Junr.”)

bullet

Robert Culpepper #3
1782 3 whites and two blacks
   [listed as "Rd". Assigned here as there were no known Richard Culpeppers at this time and this was the only Robert shown in the tax records as having Blacks.] 
1800 one male over 16 and no horse
   (not listed as Jr. here or after, but probably the same person as Robert #2)
1801 - 1802 one male over 16, one Black over 16 and no horse
1804 - 1807 one male over 16, one Black over 16 and no horse

bullet

B. Robert Culpepper #4
1798 one male over 16 and no horse
   (listed as “B. Robert”)

bullet

Robert Culpepper #5
1782 three whites and no blacks

WLC Note: It is possible that the "B" in B. Robert #4 is some form of designator and not an actual initial, as middle names for those born prior to 1800 were uncommon. And individuals using a first initial and middle name were even more rare.

The other early Robert Culpeppers of the Tidewater area found in the Culpepper Family Tree and who are potentially relevant to the identity problem are:
