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 rulings of the court in civil matters such as property disputes and slaves, and much more.
This volume contains records from Caroline County Order Book, 1772-1776, beginning on page 517 and ending on page 632 for courts held 12 March 1774 through 10 October 1776. This volume also contains records from Caroline County Order Book, 1777-1780 beginning on page 33 and ending on page 104 for courts held November 1777 through 9 July 1778. An every-name index adds to the value of this work.
