DE VILLE BOOK: English Land Grants in West Florida is a register for the states of Alabama, Mississippi, and parts of Florida and Louisiana for the years 1766-1776.  After the French and Indian War (1754-1763), England acquired what came to be called “The Two Floridas.”  West Florida was a vast region that stretched from close by Pensacola to the Mississippi River. 

 

 

This book provides data for genealogists and historians on the earliest land grants from the king of England to individuals who were to become the patriarchs of well-known first families throughout the Deep South.  Over 400 names appear in the index.  Since its publication in 1986, this book has served as a standard reference to one of the National Archives’ primary sources for early Anglo-American family history.  The register of grants is a tool for locating ancestors lost in the Latin South.

 

This one is a soft-cover volume and is priced at $23.50.  It is available from Claitor’s Publishing.
