Lincoln County Entries

In 1780 Kentucky County, Virginia, was divided into three counties: Fayette, Jefferson and Lincoln. The Virginia General Assembly instructed the Kentucky County Surveyor to copy land entries into separate volumes for each of the new counties. This database includes 4763 Entries reserving land for patenting in the Lincoln County area beginning November 3, 1779, and ending April 19, 1792. Researchers should consult Jillson's Kentucky Land Grants and publications by the Kentucky Historical Society to determine if the Entry actually resulted in a patent.
