This is a partial list of members of the Virginia House of Burgesses from 1619 to 1775. This article is under construction. Among the names on the list are those of the members of the first assembly in 1619, the members of the last assembly in 1775, the Speakers of the House and some members of the assemblies in intervening years. Surviving records do not include lists of members for some years, especially before 1676, and do not include all the members for some of the sessions. Some of these omissions are covered by the names of persons who served in several sessions.

"(Burgess)" is used in many titles or articles or planned articles below to distinguish members of the Virginia House of Burgesses from other persons with the same name. Two burgesses of the same name are distinguished by showing the first year served in the assembly after the word "burgess" in the link. Militia officer grades are shown only if they are included on a list of burgesses in a source or in a thumbnail or other biography. These grades, or ranks, were generally shown on original lists of members of sessions.
