Historical Information

During the Revolution the Virginia General Assmebly authorized the procurement of supplies from its citizens for the use of the militia, state, and Continental troops. The Legislature, sitting in sessions between 1780 May 4 and 1780 July 14, passed "An act for procuring a supply of provisions and other necessaries for the use of the Army" [Hening 10:233-237]. This act, extended in other sessions, authorized the governor to appoint commissioners within each county next hit to impress such supplies and services as were thought necessary to the war effort.

The commissioners issued receipts, or certificates, to individuals for the requisitioned items so that owners could seek reimbursement from the state government. The certificates and any other available documentation were presented to the previous hitcounty next hit court during special sessions held between 1781 and 1783. Certificates were examined and authenticated by the courts, and the amount of compensation was determined. Information pertaining to claims that were approved was recorded by the court clerk in court booklets which were sent to the public service claims commissioners' office in Richmond. The local provision law commissioners and deputy commissaries also kept lists of foodstuffs, animals and other provisions that were collected in each previous hitcounty next hit.

Two public service claims commissioners were appointed by the governor in 1783 to authorize reimbursement for materials and services provided. Individuals or their agents went to the commissioner's office in Richmond where payment on their claims was approved based on information contained in the certificates and court booklets. These transactions were recorded in the commissioners' books. The individual or his agent was then issued a warrant by the Auditor of Public Accounts which he in turn took to the state treasurer's office for payment.

Arrangement

This collection is arranged alphabetically into eight series. This collection consists of several Auditor of Public Accounts (APA) accessions that, while identified separately, all pertain to the same collection of records. Since the specific APA accessions have been used and referenced over the years it was decided that each distinct APA accession number would be maintained separately, while creating one finding aid to describe the entire collection. Each series references it's specific APA accession number.

Series I: Certificates, 1780-1783 (APA 241) Series II: Claims reaudited - Orders and vouchers, 1779-1786 (APA 239) Series III: Commissioner's books, 1783 (APA 243) Series IV: Computations and memoranda on property valuations, 1776-1783, 1786, 1791 (APA 237) Series V: Court booklets, indexes and lists, 1779-1788 (APA 242) Series VI: General claims approved, 1777, 1779-1784, 1789-1790, 1794 (APA 238) Series VII: Rejected claims lists, 1780, 1784-1785, n.d.

Contents List

Series I: Certificates,, 1780-1783 (APA 241).
Boxes: 1-36
Extent: 36 boxes (12.8 cu. ft.).

The Certificates, 1780-1783, are housed in 36 boxes, and are arranged alphabetically by locality name (with cities located at the rear of the collection), then alphabetically by surname of the claimant. This series consists of the certificates issued by commissioners of the provision law to persons whose property was impressed for public use during the Revolutionary War. The front of each certificate includes the date, a description of the item impressed (including weight or quantity), its value, and the name of the person from whom it was taken. The reverse of the certificate may contain an assignment of the right to reimbursement signed by the original owner. Includes claims for impressed property such as brandy, whiskey, beef, bacon, hay, flour, corn, wheat, horses, wagons, rifles and blankets, and for such services as driving cattle, riding express and shoeing horses.

The names of persons to whom certificates were issued have been cataloged and indexed.

Twenty-seven negative photostat volumes are also available. Note that these only show the front of the certificate.

Arranged alphabetically by locality, and by surname thereunder.

Series II: Claims Reaudited, 1779-1786 (APA 239).
Boxes: 1
Extent: .35 cu. ft. (1 box)

Claims Reaudited, 1779-1786, are arranged alphabetically by surname of claimant and include orders for payment, certificates and vouchers, as well as a few warrants. Records include the date, a description of the item impressed (including weight or quantity), its value, and the name of the person from whom it was taken or to whom money was owed. Contains claims for impressed property such as brandy, whiskey, beef, bacon, hay, corn and wheat, and for horses and wagons. Also includes other claims for: pension for injuries sustained during the war (Edward Childs, John Kenney); pension for expedition against the indians (Thomas Baker); moving British prisoners (Thomas Taylor); State Foundry expenses (Thomas Reynolds); and for removing public records and papers from Williamsburg (Jane Worsham).

During its session begun on May 6, 1782 the General Assembly passed an act authorizing the Auditor of Public Accounts to settle public claims submitted by local courts. During its session begun on October 7, 1782 the General Assembly amended this act to require the auditor to reaudit warrants issued for paper money used for property impressed for public use, and to grant other warrants in specie. The General Assembly amended the act again during its session begun on May 7, 1783 and appointed two commissioners to settle public claims.

The names of persons recorded in these claims have been cataloged and indexed.

Extent: 5 volumes.

Commissioner's Books, 1783, are arranged chronologically by the date payments were authorized and contain the names of claimants, descriptions and valuations of property, and dates payments were authorized. In 1783 two commissioners were appointed by the governor to settle claims for reimbursement for property impressed during the war.

The warrants were then taken to the state treasurer's office for payment.
