Accomack County, Virginia Court Order Abstracts, Volume 10: 1703-1710


Accomack County's tenth book of court orders begins with the court session held June, 1703, and concludes with March, 1710. The introduction spotlights the more interesting, revealing or unfortunate incidents found among the court orders issued during those years. These pages comprise a fascinating collection of accounts of assault, accidents, fornication, illness and death, crime and punishment, and slander. Much can be learned about domestic affairs, household items, orphans, religion, roads and waterways, servants and slaves, taxes and more. This chronological collection of court orders is attractively presented and includes a full name plus subject index. "In wills and deeds the genealogist can learn about his ancestors' relatives and possessions; in court orders he can learn about his ancestors."
