These are abstracts I made from the microfilmed Charlotte County, VA Deed Books. I'm not very good at reading old handwriting so there are probably errors. I would urge you to consult the originals and NOT use my abstracts for anything more than a pointer to the source records. You will find a few scattered notes to myself here also. After Amelia County, some of the Thorps moved to Charlotte County, VA. One, John Thorp, moved to Granville County, NC.
