Amelia County, Virginia Court Order Book 2, 1746-1750


This publication contains orders to record deeds, wills and powers of attorney for this period, lawsuits, witnesses, records of some Orphans Courts and Courts of Oyer and Terminer not found elsewhere. The names of many individuals not found in other county records appear here. Prince Edward County was not cut away from Amelia until 1754, and Nottoway county was not cut off until 1789, therefore this record contains the court orders for both of these present-day counties at a very early period in their existence.
