Index to Hendricks County Probate Order Books (1853-1921)

Index © Meredith Thompson

This is an index to the Hendricks County, Indiana probate order books which date from 1853 through 1921, as listed below. Entries in the order books are brief and summarize what happened when a probate case came before the judge. For a more complete picture of the probate case, you should also consult the probate packet (aka “loose papers”). Be careful when referencing the volume number of a probate order book — from 1824 through 1852, the Hendricks County Circuit Court numbered their volumes 1 through 5; when the Hendricks County Court of Common Pleas took over jurisdiction in 1853, they started the numbering back at volume 1 again.

The order books referenced in this index have all been microfilmed, and those rolls are available at the Family History Library, the Indiana State Library, and locally at the Plainfield Public Library. The Hendricks County government has digitized some of the early probate order books, and the digital copies are available through the Archives section of their website.

The Indiana Genealogical Society is digitizing Hendricks County’s probate packets from the 1800’s—the digital copies are being added to their website.
