Invoices, 1766-1773; Lists of Taxed Lands, Slaves, and other Possessions, 1760-1774 [Washington]

The invoices, 1766-1773, are copies in Washington's hand, listing goods he purchased from London merchants. The lists, 1760-1774, are of lands Washington owned on which he paid quitrents and taxes, and of "tithables." The "tithables" are chiefly slaves Washington owned for whom he had to pay a tax, or tithe. Information about the slaves listed includes their first names and, in some cases, their occupations and the farms on which they lived and worked. This volume is bound together with volume 4.

There are 30 pages.
