Please note that the Fairfax Circuit Court Chancery cases prior to 1865 are not complete, mostly due to losses sustained during the Civil War. Sadly, nearly all of our 18th century chancery cases were stolen or destroyed during the 19th century.
The Library of Virginia has digitized Fairfax County’s chancery cases through 1913. You can view the Library of Virginia’s finding aid for the Fairfax County Chancery cases here.
You can search and view the cases online through their database and download the complete case files.
You may also view the original files in person at the Historic Records Center.
