Tazewell family. Papers, 1756-1931.

Papers, 1756-1931.

The papers of Henry Tazewell (1753-1799) and Littleton Waller Tazewell (1774-1860) constitute the majority of the records in this collection. Though numerous receipts and vouchers are included, the extensive number and range of more important papers reflect the prominence of the Tazewell family in Virginia's history. The earliest Tazewell papers are chiefly wills and legal papers relating to land titles, many of them copies, but filed under the original date. From 1762-1799, letters are interspersed with legal documents and business papers relating to the Tazewell's of their clients. From 1800-1859, the papers are chiefly those of Littleton Waller Tazewell or his son, John Nivison Tazewell. Correspondence between members of the family illustrates the life of an upper class Virginia family of the period, with a great deal of information about the family plantations, letters from the son at school (Harvard, William & Mary, University of Virginia, & Princeton). The material also sheds some light on Norfolk history, and it has important papers reflecting national history in the 1820's and 1830's. The material from the 1860's deals chiefly with the career of Edmund Bradford, husband of Anne Elizabeth Tazewell, an officer in the Confederate Army. There are a few letters from Mrs. Bradford at Charlotte Court House, giving her impressions of the last days of the Civil War. Dated materials are arranged chronologically in boxes 1-19: box 1, 1650-1799; box 2, 1780-1788; box 3, 1789-1795; box 4, 1796-1801; box 5, 1802-1804; box 6, 1805-1811; box 7, 1812-1818; box 8, 1819-1821; box 9, 1822-1824; box 10, 1825; box 11, 1826; box 12, 1827-1829; box 13, 1830-1831; box 14, 1832-1834; box 15, 1835-1839; box 16, 1840-1843; box 17, 1844-1847; box 18, 1848-1863; box 19, 1864-1899. Undated materials (boxes 20-21) contains papers of Henry Tazewell related to his law practice and his senatorial career; there are a few papers which discuss the impeachment of William Blount. There are also legal and political papers of Littleton Tazewell, bills and receipts, undated maps of Virginia and South Carolina, clippings and printed materials. The volumes (boxes 20-21) contains 132 letters from Littleton Tazewell to his son, John Nivison, written 1821-1853; "Sketches of His Own Family," by Littleton; an index of letters received by family members and a letterbook, by John N. Tazewell; plantation account books and field notes of survey, by Littleton. The Floyd, Patton, Smith, Taylor, and Tucker letters (Acc. No. 23749) may be found in box 25. Wills and miscellany are in box 26. Oversize materials (2 boxes) contain indentures, land surveys, accounts, Littleton Tazewell's diploma from The College of William and Mary, and a photostat of Norfolk borough.
