Acquisition Information

These items came to the Library of Virginia in a transfer of court papers from Brunswick County.

Historical Information

Brunswick County was named for the duchy of Brunswick-Luneburg, one of the German possessions of George I. It was formed in 1720 from Prince George County, but, because of the sparse population, county government was not recognized until 1732. In the latter year Brunswick County was enlarged by the addition of parts of Surry and Isle of Wight Counties. Its area is 579 square miles, and the county seat is Lawrenceville.

Scope and Content

Brunswick County (Va.) Minute Books, 1794-1948, along with closely related court records such as order books, record all matters brought before the court when it was in session and may contain important information not found anywhere else. Generally minute books contain brief entries. A locality's loose papers are the raw materials from which this type of book was created. Like order books, a wide variety of information is found in its pages including: appointments of county officers, appointments of guardians and administrators, records of legal disputes heard before the court, and matters related to the fiscal management of the court. Collection includes minute book from the Superior Court of Law, Circuit Court, and County Court.
