Scope and Content

King George County (Va.) Clerks' Records, 1768-1905, consist of Fee Books. Two volumes (1171129 and 1171134) also contain Marriage Licenses from 1771-1772 and 1776 respectively.

A Fee Book is a volume showing the date of a duty performed by the clerk, the name of the person paying the fees, and the amount. The book includes fees charged attorneys, cash accounts, and the clerks' fees in common law and chancery suits.

A Marriage License grants permission by a public authority to persons who intend to marry. The license is prepared by the clerk of the court and presented to the minister who performs the cermony.
