The Supreme Court of Record in the Dominion of Virginia in the Early 18th Century is the General Court, held at the Capitol, in the City of Williamsburg. The Court had Jurisdiction, and held Pleas of all Matters whatsoever arising within this Colony, Criminal, Ecclesiastical, or Civil, at Common Law, or in Chancery, Real, Personal, or Mixed. It also received and determined Appeals, and Supersedeas, obtained from the Judgment of any Inferior Court or Record: Grants Certificates of Probate of Wills, and determined the Right of Administration, where the Estate exceeded £50 Value. There are also records of all Prisoners committed to the Public Jail, and innumerable Rules, Orders, and Decrees.
This painstaking continuation of the transcription
started in the first volume (above), covers so many various types of records in such great detail that we can't begin to cover it all here.
The every-name index alone spans 93 pages of small type, listing almost anyone who was the subject of public documentation during this early colonial period in a county which covered a vast area of the northern neck region.
