Why Virginians Left the Family Home

Virgininians built large plantations upon their land grants and an economy unequaled by their English relatives.   Although the cost of imports were high as vessels were taxed upon arrival, the typical planter put all of his effort into the operation of the farm.  He was also frugile and wise, for as old buildings were torn down, plank boards and nails were saved.  And good use was made of forest products and animals. The tobacco crop became an easy trade (for money) across the seas.   By the time of the Amerian Revolution, Virginia land was "worn out" and there simply was not enough fertile land to divide among his children.   The eldest son was bequeathed the family set, but the younger children moved on.  The single-most important factor to every family was fertile land. Find your Virginia Ancestors
