Surry County, Virginia Wills, Estates and Inventories, 1730-1800.


By: Lyndon H. Hart, Pub. 1983, Reprinted 2016, 182 pages, soft cover, Index, ISBN #0-89308-325-9.
Surry County was created in 1652 from James City County. Due to the loss of court records of many surrounding counties, such as Charles City, Dinwiddie, James City, and Prince George, the records of Surry County take on a more profound importance because of the early movement across county lines and the James River.  This book contains not only wills of individuals, but also guardians and administrators' bonds, bastardy, apprentice, trustees, sheriffs and treasurer's bonds, and inventories of estates. The names of approximately 7,000 persons are found in these legal records of this important county.
