Following is a review written by Andy Pomeroy.

cf4177I cannot imagine writing a better summary for Land Causes: Accomack County, Virginia, 1727-1826, than the one provided in its preface:

The records included in this volume are invaluable to anyone interested in Eastern Shore genealogy, and, the compiler believe, will prove to be a valuable addition to Virginia genealogy in general. The Land Causes or chancery suits for dower, division of lands, ejectment proceedings & c., give in full the declaration of the plaintiff, the answer of the defendants, the verdict of the jury, depositions, in many instances giving the date of birth, death and marriage of the parties; land is traced form the original patent to about 1825, showing the various owners and their descendants and next of kin through many generations. The records include those of the District Court as well as those of the County Court. In suits for division or ejectment when any of the interested parties have left the county or State, their then place of residence is given.

The abstracts in most cases are the special verdicts of juries, which sum up and give in concrete from the declarations and answers – Depositions of unusual interest, or which show anything not set out in the verdict, are also fully abstracted.

The compiler wishes to acknowledge his appreciation to Mr. John D. Grant, Jr. Clerk, and his Deputies, for the many courtesies extended him while making these abstracts.
 

If Land Causes: Accomack County, Virginia, 1727-1826 has the type of record you are looking for, then Family Roots Publishing has a copy waiting for you.
