But apprehending these might be different appellations for some of the tribes already enu. merated, I have not inserted them in the table, but state them separately as worthy of further enquiry. The variations observable in numbering the same tribe may sometimes be ascrib. ed to imperfect information, and sometimes to a greater or less comprehension of settlements under the same name. (7)

QUERY XII. .

A NOTICE of the counties, cities, townships, and villages.

The counties have been enumerated under Query IX. They are 74 in number, of very unequal size and population. Of these 35 are

on the tide waters, or in that parallel ; 23 are in the midlands, between the tide waters and Blue ridge of mountains ; & between the Blue ridge and Alleghaney; and 8 westward-of the Alle ; ghaney.

The state, by another division, is formed in. to parishes, many of which are commensurate with the counties: but sometimes a county comprehends more than one parish, and some times a parish more than one county. This division had relation to the religion of the state, a parson of the Angelican church, with a fixed salary, having been heretofore established in each parish. The care of the poor was another object of the parochial division.

We have no townships. Our country being much intersected with navigable waters, and trade brought generally to our doors, instead of our being obliged to go in quest of it, has pro? bably been one of the causes why we have no towns of any consequence. Williamsburgh, which till the year 1780, was the seat of our government, never contained above 1800 inha bitants; and Norfolk the most populous town we ever had, contained but 6000. Our towns, but more properly our villages or hamlets, are as follows:

On James' River and its waters, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Hampton, Suffolk, Smithfield, Williamsburgh, Petersburgh, Richmond the seat of our government, Manchester, Charlottes. ville, New-London.

On York River and its waters, York, Newcastle, Hanover. :
