Records of Indentured Servants and of Certificates for Land, Northumberland County, Virginia, 1650-1795 - W. Preston Haynie . This book contains perhaps the most extensive list of Northumberland County names ever included in a single work, as found in the pages of court records detailing both land and indentured servant transactions. Certificates for land include names of headrights or indentured servants. Additional court records contain numerous names of indentured servants, brought to court to have their ages judged, to enter into agreements with their masters, or to take their masters to court for abuse or failure to pay their freedom dues. In turn, servants are named when their masters take them to court for running away, having a child, or committing other crimes.
