The Growth of Virginia, 1634-1895:
1721-1730



VA 1721-1730
By 1720 expansion of settlement had begun again in Virginia. In 1721 Hanover was created from New Kent, King George from Richmond, and Spotsylvania from lands ceded by Essex, King and Queen, and King William. This first example of multiple donorship to form a single new county was followed in 1728 when Caroline was formed from Essex, King and Queen, and King William. Later that year Goochland formed from Henrico. The contiued impetus of settlement and county formation to the northwest was in part the contribution of Governor Spotswood's efforts as a leader in exploration and promotion of these new lands.
