Biographical/Historical Information

Richard Corbin (ca. 1708-1790) served as a burgess, councillor, and receiver general of Virginia, 1761-1776.

Letters and accounts of Richard Corbin. Included are warrants for payments from the Virginia quitrents; accounts and letters with Osgood and Capel Hanbury, his London agents; memoranda and accounts regarding his plantations; accounts with tradesmen; and accounts, legal papers, and letters to his son, Richard Corbin, Jr., which comprise most of the later material.
