(Brief Abstract of) Lower Norfolk County and Norfolk County Wills, 1637-1710


This volume contains abstracts of early wills, and lists all names included in the original will. "In using this Abstract, it is well to bear in mind the brief development of Norfolk County: Norfolk County was originally a part of Elizabeth City County, formed in 1634. About 1636 that portion of Elizabeth City County, lying on the south side of the James River, was formed into New Norfolk County. About 1637 New Norfolk County was divided into Upper Norfolk and Lower Norfolk Counties; Upper Norfolk County later became Nansemond County, and in 1691 Lower Norfolk was divided into Princess Anne County and Norfolk County." A list of wills (1637-1710), an index to full names and an index to places augment the text.
