WESTMORELAND COUNTY VIRGINIA LOOSE CHANCERY PAPERS: 1804-1864
transcribed by Elizabeth Nuckols Lee. 2004, iv, 237
pages, index. The majority of suits deal with the division of real and personal
property of a decedent, when minor children were involved. This was the case when a person had many
children over a long period of time, a person had been married more than once, or when an adult child was
also deceased and had minor children. The law required that minor children be protected. Suits had to be
brought to guarantee that protection. As a result, some chancery bills contain as many as four or five
generations of a family. In 1873, many old pending suits were dismissed or discontinued.
