CREATOR: Mutual Assurance Society (Winchester, Va.)

DATE: 1746-1838

SCOPE AND CONTENT: The Mutual Assurance Society Records collection contains insurance policies dating from 1746 to 1838belonging to dwellings in Winchester and Frederick County, VA, and some neighboring counties The policies include policyholder’s names. Information about this collection is arranged in two tables. The first table lists properties alphabetically by street name. The second lists policyholders alphabetically by last name.

BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL: Street names, house numbers, and county boundaries have changed since the time of these records. The addresses in this inventory are approximate modern equivalents to the location of insured properties. Buildings on a nearby street may be included on a policy.

Most of the documents in this collection are the Form of the Declarations for Assurance, in which an owner applying for insurance describes property and attests to its use and value. Some are actual policies or revaluations, which have their own numbers but refer to earlier Declaration numbers or policy numbers. Occasionally there is a duplication of numbering.
