Excerpt from The Probate Records of Essex County, Massachusetts, Vol. 1: 1635-1664

The charter of The Governor and Company of Massa chusetts Bay in New England, granted March 4, 1628-9, provided that a Greate and Generall Court should be held four times each year. This court, sitting in Boston, exer cised the entire judicial powers of the Colony until March 3, 1635-6, when quarterly courts were ordered to be kept in several of the larger towns, and Salem and Ipswich were the towns selected within what is now the county of Essex. These courts also exercised probate jurisdiction and proved wills and granted administrations, although probate business for a long time after was brought before the Great and Gen eral Court, from time to time, seemingly as a matter of per sonal convenience. The colony was divided into Shires or counties in 1643, and each county had its own courts. Ha verhill, Amesbury and Salisbury, lying north of the Merrimac river and which now are included within the limits of Essex County, were then placed in old Norfolk County and so remained until Feb. 4, 1679-80, when new boundary lines were established. The probate records of the southern juris diction of Old Norfolk County which relate to these three towns are therefore here included. Essex County probate business sometimes was taken to Suffolk County. This was especially the case during the administration of Governor Andros, when, for the centralization of business for the oh taining of fees, all save a few unimportant estates were pro bated in Boston. Under the new charter probate courts were established in each county by an order in council adopted June 18, 1692, and Bartholomew Gedney was appointed the first judge in this county. This court has had a continuous existence to the present day.
