Surry County, which was originally part of the Jamestown settlement, figured conspicuously in the early history of the colony of Virginia. This work is a compilation of abstracts of the earliest extant wills and administrations of Surry County, containing abstracts of over 1,250 wills and administrations, with upwards of 7,000 index entries. Covering the eighty-year period between 1671 and 1750, its sweep is sufficient to establish it as the premier source book in Surry County genealogy, and few researchers interested in this early period of Virginia history can afford to overlook it.
