Linville's Creek

Linville Creek was one of the most interesting and important centers of Colonial Virgina. In the lush Shenandoah Valley of Virginia in Augusta (later Rockingham) County, it quickly became a civilized outpost. It had a history before the Swiss Germans joined the English, Quakers, and few Scotch-Irish who were among the earliest settlers. And later, Rockingham County was always a passage way too, as people landed for a while, developed what they had, and headed off to new places where they could claim twice or tripple the land for half the price or less. (Source: Iman Family.net.)

Linville Creek, named after an early settler William Linville, is located in what was called the "Northern Neck" of old Virginia, in current southwestern Rockingham County. On its north end, it enters the north fork of the Shenandoah River at Broadway. It was first established with the following grant of 7,009 acres by Jost Hite (the leader of the group), Robert Green, Robert McKay and William Duff, four early land speculators that had obtained orders of the Council for large tracts of land, on the condition that they settle a certain number of persons within a given time period (this deadline was extended several times, but a final order of the Council was entered on June 12th, 1734, giving "The Company" (Hite, Green, McKay and Duff) until December 25th, 1735 to "comply with terms of all former orders".

Linville's Creek (light blue) is located in current Rockingham County, Virginia, just north of Harrisonburg, Virginia.

Linville Creek, named after an early settler William Linville, is located in what was called the "Northern Neck" of old Virginia, in current southwestern Rockingham County. On its north end, it enters the north fork of the Shenandoah River at Broadway. It was first established with the following grant of 7,009 acres by Jost Hite (the leader of the group), Robert Green, Robert McKay and William Duff, four early land speculators that had obtained orders of the Council for large tracts of land, on the condition that they settle a certain number of persons within a given time period (this deadline was extended several times, but a final order of the Council was entered on June 12th, 1734, giving "The Company" (Hite, Green, McKay and Duff) until December 25th, 1735 to "comply with terms of all former orders". Virginia Governor William Gooch issued the land patent to Hite, Green, McKay and Duff in 1739. A dispute between William Fairfax and the King of England arose over the issuance of the patents to Hite, et. al., which was not resolved until "The Company" brought suit against Fairfax in 1750, which was apparently resolved in favor of Hite, Green, McKay, Duff and their descendants.

The first record of Linville's Creek in Augusta County records (some records are surely recorded in Orange County, the predecessor county of Augusta):
