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 records of legal disputes, bastardy cases, indentured servant cases, and much more.
This volume contains records from (Old) Rappahannock County Order Book, 1689-1692, beginning on page 149 through page 254, for courts held 1 January 1689 through 6 April 1692. The last record is from Richmond County, Virginia, Order Book No. 1, 1692-1694, for 5 May 1694. An every-name and subject index adds to the value of this work.
