The extracts you have are from LDS microfilm available through your nearest Family History Center (costs about $5 per roll to order).

The Family History Library (Salt Lake City) description is here, including the exact description and microfilm number that you would need to order:

The microfilming was done in 1983. The County Clerk's office may not still retain these files, or may restrict public access to the original documents in consideration of document preservation. Remember that what you want to look at is now more than 200 years old, and consider what condition you might be in at that age . . .

While LDS may have provided a copy of the microfilm to the County Clerk's office, given very restricted space they may not provide a microfilm reader for use by the public. When I was there some 20 years ago there was no such facility, although they did have a film/fiche reader-copier for use by staff to make copies of wills and deeds.
