Wills: Recording of wills in Will Book 1 began in 1843, although wills had been copied into the minutes of the county court of pleas and quarter sessions beginning in 1830.  In 1875, a courthouse fire destroyed some records, including most of the original wills.  The surviving original wills are principally for testators with surnames beginning with the letters H, M, W, and Y.  At a later date, these surviving wills were copied into Will Book A.  Many of the original wills are missing.
