Ruth and Sam Sparacio
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 Northumberland County Order Book 1666-1678 beginning on page 316 and ending on page 362 for courts held from 23 November 1677 through 15 May 1678, and Order Book 1678-1698 beginning on page 1 and ending on page 63 for courts held 21 August 1678 through 17 March 1679.
