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.
Richmond County Virginia Order Book 1719-1721 contains entries from Richmond County Order Book No. 8, 1718-1721 beginning on page 139 and ending on page 229 for Courts held September 2, 1719 through April 6, 1721.
