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 rulings of the court in civil matters such as property disputes and slaves, and much more.This volume contains records from Caroline County Order Book, 1772–1776, beginning on page 1 through page 178, for courts held May 1772 through 11 March 1773. An every-name index adds to the value of this work.
