Surry County Courthouse

Surry County is unique in the South to have preserved and protected original county records that were established in 1652, avoiding destruction from the British in the American Revolution and the Union Army during the Civil War. Records are available to the public on a “self-serve basis” during regular office hours.
(Monday through Friday, 9-5).
Contact the office at 757-294-3161

Be advised: There is no staff to assist with genealogical research. Selected records have been microfilmed by the Library of Virginia and are available as microfilmed copies from this office. Some records are on the scanning system and other records are available only through a designation in specific registries such as births, marriages, and deaths. The Surry County Historical Society also has some copies to assist you.
