Westmoreland County, Virginia Order Book Abstracts 1714-1716


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 entries from Westmoreland County Order Book 1705–1721 beginning on page 244a and ending on page 295 for courts held July 28, 1714 through August 30, 1716. A full-name index adds to the value of this work.
