King William County Court House

King William County, Virginia was created in 1702 from King and Queen County, Virginia and was named after William of Orange, King of England. The court house was built in 1725 and is the oldest court house in continuous use in the United States. The county seat is King William, which includes the metropolitan area of Richmond, Virginia. There was a court house fire in 1880 which apparently destroyed most of the probate records. The only surviving records found are four books of deeds, Nos. 5 through 8. The burnt portions of the pages were cut away and microfilmed. The deeds begin in 1800 and are published to this website.
