Note: Virginia's 1787 tax lists are the most significant for this time period due to the fact that in 1787, tax collectors were required to visit the actual residences of the tithables in their districts, thus providing "neighborhoods" based on the the dates of the tax collectors' visits. In Stafford County, the following are a few "clues" to neighborhoods from the 1787 Stafford Co, VA Tax List B (Excerpted from The 1787 Census of Virginia, The Personal Property Tax Lists for the year 1787 for Stafford County, Netti Schreiner-Yantis & Florence Speakman Love, Genealogical Books in Print, Springfield, Virginia, 1987):
