Stafford County (Va.) Court Records, Order Book, Index page 6b






This volume is a transcription that summarizes all matters brought before the court from 1749-1755. A wide variety of recordings are found in this book including: deeds, chancery causes, judgments, records of legal disputes heard before the county court, and road orders. Transcribed from the original record in 1791 by John Fox, a Stafford County deputy court clerk, this order book contains a comprehensive index in the front of the volume. Following the Order Book entries (pp. 1-374), there is an "Index for Land Order Book, March 1780-December 1789." It is believed that the referenced Land Order Book is not extant.
