Jefferson County is one of the earlier settlement areas of east Tennessee since it is on the French Broad and Little Pigeon Rivers which have their head waters in western North Carolina. Since many of the early settlers traveled by boat, this was a natural outlet into this county. These court minutes reflect the earliest records of the day by day running of the county by the courts. Here are found many of the land transactions, divorces, orphan records, road orders and the many other items of general interest to the people of a county.

Example from this volume:

“First Monday in May 1795 - The last will and testament of John Gilliland, Sen. Deceaed was proven in Court by John McNabb and John Neitherton subscribing witness thereto and Joseph Hamilton one of the executors therein named was qualified.”

“A bill of sale from William Murphy to Thomas Jarnigan for a negro man named Pompey was proven in Court and recorded.”

“Mordecai Mendirgall is released from the payment of a double tax on his stud horse.” Etc., etc.
