Hanover County is located in the heart of Virginia just north of the city of Richmond. This work focuses on the Chancery Wills and Notes. The papers of these suits consist of the bills or petitions, answers of defendants, powers of attorney, subpoenas, copies of wills, deeds, and other exhibits. Since most of the Hanover County Records were destroyed near the end of the Civil War, this work preserves valuable data from the extant records of Hanover County, especially the vital facts related to the “ante bellum” period. Cocke’s objective was “to extract every detail of genealogical, biographical and historical import, and to arrange when convenient alphabetically in relation to families, and chronologically as regards genealogy. Reference is made to the title or style of the suit, year of institution, and the ended file number. When more than one suit was found involving the same families or litigants, to eliminate duplication, they were broken down, and a composite digest made.” In handling the Wills, Cocke attempted “to provide either a comprehensive abridgment or an authentic verbatim copy, …where questionable portions or flagrant misuses appear, underlines have been added.” This work is enhanced with an illustration of the Hanover Courthouse, a list of some of the Justices of the Peace of Hanover County, an index of Wills and a general index.
