York County, Virginia Wills, Inventories and Court Orders, 1725-1728


Probate records include the name of the deceased, the type of document, dates of signing and probate, heirs, executors, administrators and witnesses. The names of all slaves are included. Descriptions of real estate are generally transcribed in detail. Items in the inventory are described, but not in great detail. The land records of York County consist primarily of deeds, but the early land records sometimes served as a "catch-all" for recording events including powers of attorney, patents, articles of agreement, acknowledgment of receipt of estate portion, deeds of gift to family members, contracts, and quit claims.
