Northumberland County, Virginia Order Book, 1674-1677
Ruth and Sam Sparacio
County court order books contain records of all matters brought before the court while in session. The information contained in these records may not appear elsewhere. The order books typically provide a synopsis of court cases in a relatively organized format. Records you may find include appointments of local officials and militia officers, records of legal disputes, appointments of guardians for minors, apprenticeships of minors authorized by overseers of the poor, naturalizations, road orders, and the register of free Negroes.
This volume contains entries from Northumberland County, Virginia, Order Book, 1666–1678 beginning on page 199 and ending on page 316 for courts held 25 April 1674 through 22 November 1677. A full-name and place index adds to the value of this work.
