Today I visited the genealogy section of the Nashville, TN public library. The library was easy to find. It is located on 615 Church Street. However, they did not have the information that I required. They also didn't have a large selection of county books. But the librarians were very helpful and directed me to the State Archives which was just up on the street. They have a large selection of county books and research material. If you can't get to Virginia to look up the materials, this is a good place to start, if you are living in TN.
If you are living in Kentucky, I would certainly recommend the Library in Louisville and the Sons of the American Revolution Headquarters which is right up the street from the library. The Sons of the American Revolution building has a huge resource area.
Journal of the House of Burgesses:
dated July 5, 1653
These pages are concerned with the election of Walter Chiles as Speaker of the House and the conflict of interest due to his ship problems. He was elected by his compatriots, but he chose not to accept the position because of this conflict of interest.
Please note that it was only 7 days later that they sold the confiscated ship Leopoldus to Walter Chiles for 400 pounds.
