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 minor, apprenticeships of minors authorized by overseers of the poor, naturalizations, road orders, and the register of free Negroes. This volume contains entries from Orange County Order Book 5, 1747-1754 beginning on page 240 and ending on page 354 for courts held 24 March 1749 through 6 February 1752.
