James City County and Williamsburg shared a courthouse starting in 1770.
During the American Civil War, many of their courthouse records were moved to Richmond for safekeeping, but were destroyed by the 3 April 1865 fire.
Consequently, few court records from prior to that date exist, although a few records from the 1850s are housed in the current Williamsburg-James City County Courthouse.
Deed Book 1 and Will Book 1 both include some records from the 1850's.
