Note that there are several gaps in the records of both Isle of Wight and Surry. Nearly forty years of early Isle of Wight deeds are missing (1649-1688), and some wills and estate records from the late 1650s and early 1660s appear to be missing as well. Essentially all the court records are also lost. Early Surry County wills are also lost, apparently having been filed in James City County. The Surry court records are missing from 1719 through late 1741. Other gaps in the records are noted in the Chronologies if they appear to be significant.
