Goochland County, Virginia Court Order Book 1 and 2, 1728-1731, Ann K. Blomquist


1 Goochland County, Virginia Court Order Book 1 and 2, 1728-1731
Ann K. Blomquist
2007, 5˝x8˝, paper, index, 466 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
A wide variety of transactions, for the public good and between individuals, are preserved on these pages. For the public welfare, roads were ordered to be cleared, surveyors were assigned, and bridges were built. Prices for liquor and meals were established, and ordinaries were licensed. Many entries involved trespass and debt. In the colonial era, trespass often referred to the use of someone else’s land and boundary disputes. Other suits addressed by the court included criminal acts such as assault, beatings, drunkenness, stealing, swearing, and murder. Sentences included fines, whipping, and incarceration. The court extended its protection to women, orphans and servants; and occasionally ordered the release of a servant. This transcription is based on microfilm of the original books provided by the Library of Virginia. The text has been modernized as little as possible. The method of recording dates during the time period covered differs from modern notation; however, modern dates have been noted in brackets. Two facsimile reprints of original court order book pages, a map of Goochland County, appendices, a bibliography, and a full name index add to the value of this work.

5 Goochland County [Virginia] Road Orders, 1728-1744. Published With Permission from the Virginia Transportation Research Council (A Cooperative Organization Sponsored Jointly by the Virginia Department of Transportation and the University of Virginia
Virginia Genealogical Society
(2002), 2008, 8˝x11, paper, 96 pp, Heritage Books
The establishment and maintenance of public roads were among the most important functions of the county court during the colonial period in Virginia. Each road was opened and maintained by an overseer (or surveyor) of the highways, who was appointed each year by the Gentlemen Justices. The overseer was usually assigned all the able-bodied men (the “Labouring Male Tithables”) living on or near the road. These laborers then furnished their own tools, wagons, and teams and were required to work on the roads for six days each year.County court records relating to roads and transportation are collectively know as “road orders.” The Virginia Transportation Research Council’s published volumes of road orders and related materials contain not only information on early roads, but also the names of inhabitants who lived and worked along the roadways, plantations, farms, landmarks, landforms, and bodies of water.Much of this information is found nowhere else in early records, making these publications invaluable not only to historical and cultural resources research, but also to other disciplines, including social history, preservation planning, environmental science, and genealogy.
