Originally published in three volumes with three separate indexes, Wills and Administrations of Isle of Wight County, Virginia, 1647-1800 has been reconstituted and all three volumes have been repaged in one sequence, with a comprehensive index of over 20,000 entries. The researcher is thus provided an easy-to-use, compact edition in which a name from any one of three volumes can readily be located.
The original records on file in Isle of Wight County and abstracted in this work are: Wills and Administrations Book A (1641-1650); Will and Deed Books 1 and 2 (1658-1659, 1666-1719); Will Books 3-11 (1726-1800); Deed Book I (1691-1695); Administrations and Probates (1666-1701); and The Great Book (1719-1729).
