Spotsylvania County, Virginia Order Book Abstracts 1738–1740


Order books contain records of all matters brought before the court when it was in session and may contain important information not found anywhere else. A wide variety of information is found in order books including appointments of county officials and militia officers, records of legal disputes heard before the county court, appointments of guardians, apprenticeships of children by the overseers of the poor, naturalizations, road orders, and registrations of free Negroes.

Entries are taken from Spotsylvania County Order Book, 1738–1740, beginning on page 1 and ending on page 94, for courts held April 4, 1738 through July 31, 1740. An index to names and places adds to the value of this work.
