This volume contains the earliest extant wills for Caroline County bound in book form and located in the courthouse. T. E. Campbell's Colonial Caroline, A History of Caroline County, Virginia, abstracted the will information from year 1732 through October 1781. The forthcoming second volume of this series will try to fill in the records gap that exists by using the Court Order Books from 1781 to 1854. During this time, only Will Book 19 is extant, and it is included in this first volume. The original Will Books start again with number 29, beginning with the year 1853. It is the author's intent to eventually have all of the Will Books abstracted through the year 1925.
