Bledsoe County, located at the upper end of the Sequatchie Valley, was created by an Act of the Legislature on November 30, 1807 and named in honor of Abraham Bledsoe, and early explorer in Tennessee and father of Anthony Bledsoe, one of Tennessee’s early legislatures. This volume of the Chancery Court book is a summary of the various cases that came before the court and gives some of the details, but no all. This will whet one’s appetite for more that may or may not be found.

Example of entries from this volume:

Page 96 - September 1840 - Thomas W. Spicer vs Thomas Sherley - Came the parties by their solicitor and it is ordered by the court that the defendant file with the clerk and master of this court that all the books notes and vouchers in any wise touching and the decedent by his solicitor prays an appeal from the decree rendered in this case to the next term of the supreme court at Knoxville and the same is allowed him upon the defendant giving bond with approved security to prosecute said appeal. On or before the 15th of November next. And then the court adjourned until court in course.”
