Essex County, Virginia Deed and Will Abstracts 1699-1701


County court order books contain records of all matters brought before the court while in session. The information contained in these records may not appear elsewhere. The order books typically provide a synopsis of court cases in a relatively organized format. Records you may find include appointments of local officials and militia officers, records of legal disputes, appointments of guardians for minors, apprenticeships of minors authorized by overseers of the poor, naturalizations, road orders, and the register of free Negroes.

This volume contains records from Essex County, Virginia, Deeds and Wills Book, 1699–1701, beginning on page 1 through page 72, for courts held 8 June 1699 through 10 March 1700. An every-name and place index adds to the value of this work.
