Mutual Assurance Society Records, 248 WFCHS

The Mutual Assurance Society Records collection contains insurance policies (1746-1838) to dwellings in Winchester, VA and Frederick County, VA, which include policyholder?s names.

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.
