Scope and Content

Scope and content: These can include inventories and appraisements, letters of guardians, administrators and executors, bonds, affidavits, court orders, journal entries, wills, and other original instruments. All of these documents were usually filed in a large cardboard enclosure known as a "jacket," which was labeled on the spine or front with the case number and plaintiff/defendant, then filed in sequential order. Case files form the foundation of information that was later entered into dockets and journals. The probate court had jurisdiction over marriages, town incorporations, estates, wills, adoptions, insanities, delinquent and dependent children, and similar matters within the county.
