Daniel Entries from
Middlesex County, Virginia
Wills and Inventories 1673-1812
and Other Court Papers

by William Lindsay Hopkins, 1989

The opening number in each entry is the page number in Hopkins' book.
I've definitely abbreviated more than he.
I've added the newstyle years in brackets, e.g. 5 Feb 1743[44].
I've looked at most of these originals (well, all the early stuff) and made some comments or observations here in [straight brackets]. I've put *** where these records show a contradiction or different line-up of families from the traditional write-ups.

Regrettably, there is much info on the married daughters of these families but I did not look for or extract it. Occasionally I caught an entry that I knew was a daughter.

There are other Daniel entries in the court records, Hopkins' book only extracts records of wills, inventories, vital records, and other records that show genealogical links.
