Accomack County's eleventh book of court orders began in May 1710, and continued through November 1714. Either the populace was generally satisfied with the court's judgments or the citizenry had learned that criticism was counterproductive; complaints about the court and its justices are not as evident as in previous years. The introduction spotlights the more interesting, revealing or unfortunate incidents found among the court orders issued during those years. These pages comprise a fascinating collection of accounts of assault, fornication and adultery, thievery and wills. Much can be lear... View more info

In Accomack County’s fifteenth volume of court orders, the earliest records are dated 10 July 1724. By the time this volume begins, Englishmen had been living on the Eastern Shore for more than a hundred years. During that time colonial society had matured, and the nature of the records reflected the change. Though there were still cases of flaring tempers, illicit love and unwarranted violence, the majority of entries dealt with someone trying to recover money, tobacco or corn. And when a crime did occur, as likely as not, it was a crime against property. The introduction spotlights th... View more info

Some women who lived on the Eastern Shore of Virginia were prone to bad behavior; others had bad things happen to them, but all of their stories are too good to leave buried in the old record books. During the 1600s and early 1700s, a wide range of circumstances brought these women to the attention of the court, and as they wove in and out of the records they left hints and clues and even quotes that begged to be teased out and pieced together into sketches of their lives. These ordinary wenches, wives and widows step from the old records and speak for themselves, focusing on life as they live... View more info

Accomack County’s sixteenth book of court orders begins with the court held on 7 September 1731, and ends on 3 February 1736/37. During this period the justices determined the fates of fornicators, thieves, orphans and murderers. And the clerk, for the first time in more than thirty years, recorded depositions; in them witnesses described the birth of a fair-skinned slave girl and the death of a violent slave man. The majority of cases were far more mundane, however. In a typical court session, four to six justices dealt mainly with debts and debtors who, likely as not, failed to appear... View more info
