The Growth of Virginia, 1634-1895
In the first years of the eighteenth century county formation began anew with King William formed from King and Queen in 1702 and Prince George from Charles City in 1703. However, a precipitous decline in immigration
came about with the opening of the War of the Spanish Succession (1703-1713). Troubles continued for the better part of a decade thereafter as well because of the overnight burgeoning of piratical activity throughout the West Indies and along the eastern seaboard of North America.
Only after Woodes Rogers reduced the pirate capital at Nassau was trade restored and Virginia's growth could resume.
1702 - King William (King and Queen)
1703 - Prince George (Charles City)
