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 for guardians for minors, apprenticeships of minors authorized by overseers of the poor, naturalizations, road orders, and the register of free Negroes.
This volume contains entries from Spotsylvania County Order Book 1738-1749 beginning on page 249 and ending on page 295 for Courts held March 1, 1742/3 through December 5, 1744.
