The Growth of Virginia, 1634-1895

VA 1691-1700
A rejuvenation of Virginia tobacco export trade began in the late 1680s, and this fostered further growth in the colony. In 1691 King and Queen was formed from New Kent, and Lower Norfolk split off Princess Anne. Lower Norfolk's name was simplified to Norfolk at this time, as Upper Norfolk had not existed since the 1640s. The returning significance of the Northern Neck area between the Rappahannock and Potomac Rivers as a focus of immigration was made clear in 1691 when Rappahannock was divided to become Essex and Richmond.

1681 - King and Queen (New Kent)
1691 - Norfolk (Lower Norfolk) Lower Norfolk divided and extinguished
