Kent County, Delaware Guardian Accounts: Edmondson to Hopkins, 1744-1855


These records are filled with genealogical data. During the 100-year period where fewer genealogical sources are available, (the mid 17th century to mid 18th century) these records offer valuable information on relationships between parties (stated and implied throughout). Ages are evident, sometimes exact and others times approximate. Approximate dates of deaths can also be inferred. Clues to relative wealth are interspersed throughout. Names of court officials in the proceedings have been omitted for purpose of economy. Records are grouped by decedent surname.
