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.) 2004, 291 pages, 8.5" X 10.5",detailed index & slave index.
