Biographical/Historical Information

Thomas Loyall was a blacksmith in Louisa and Hanover County.

Scope and Content

Collection contains two ledgers and several miscellaneous pages. The first ledger begins with several pages of mathematical exercises. The majority of the pages pertain to the Estate of John Loyall in Account with Thomas Loyall. Additional notes were added to the ledger in the 1870s by P.B. Loyall. The second ledger was the account book of Thomas Loyall, a Virginia blacksmith. As is the case with the first ledger, P.B. Loyall added his own accounts between the 1870s and 1890s. Miscellaneous family papers found within the second ledger, including a copy of the will of Frances Loyall, have been moved to a separate folder. Other papers include rental agreements between P.B. Loyall and others, and an 1897 letter from Dr. Lee Staton to "Coley".
