Summary
Containing papers of the allied Nicholas family and Jefferson family. The collection includes 64 letters from Thomas Jefferson and 375 to him relating to family affairs, management of Monticello and his financial relations.
Letters from John Taylor of Caroline to Wilson Cary Nicholas, 1806-1808, contain important material on politics; a group of letters of George Wythe Randolph, Secretary of War of the Confederacy, contain copies of his correspondence with Jefferson Davis and other Confederate leaders.
The bulk of the papers after 1820 consists of the correspondence of George Wythe Randolph, his brother Thomas Jefferson Randolph and wife Jane Nicholas Randolph, and their children, particulary Mary Buchanan Randolph and A draft copy of the will of Martha Jefferson Randolph, April 18, 1834 is included, as are the memoirs of Jefferson written by Thomas Jefferson Randolph written in 1874.
The collection includes deeds, plats, patents, and other legal papers concerning lands in Albemarle, Fluvanna, Goochland, Henrico, and Powhatan Counties, several of which establish the chain of title to Edgehill. Deeds for land owned by the Randolph Family (Richard Randolph, Jr., Thomas Mann Randolph, Thomas Jefferson Randolph), the Eppes Family (Francis Eppes, Richard Eppes, and William Eppes), and the Nicholas Family (John Nicholas, George Nicholas, and Robert Carter Nicholas.) Of interest is a plat of the town of Beverley, Henrico County, surveyed by Peter Jefferson (1751 June 6) and a survey of Thomas Bryan Martin's land (1762 March 29) The survey is of the Manor of Greenway Court, a tract of 8840 acres in Frederick County granted to Martin by Thomas Lord Fairfax, made in connection with the lawsuit of Thomas B. Martin vs. Peter Wolf, defendant in an ejection suit. (Perhaps used after 1762 in an early case, not listed in T. J.'s Case Book.)
