The county court is among the most colorful institutions in Virginia history. Coming into existence a few years after the birth of the colony, it remained almost unchanged in its general character up until the time of the Civil War. Not only was it the keystone about which the administration of local justice was build, but it possessed important legislative and executive functions.
