The Growth of Virginia, 1634-1895:
1741-1750



VA 1741-1750
By 1738 pioneers in the newly opening lands of Virginia's northwest were urging the definition of counties there, and Frederick and Augusta were created west of te Blue Ridge contingent upon the documentation of a reasonable number of tithables there. In the former case this was not demonstrated until 1741; in the latter not until 1745. Meanwhile, in 1742 Fairfax was created from Prince William and Louisa from Hanover, and in 1744 Albemarle was formed from the western part of Goochland. Further activity occurred across the board in Virginia, with Lunenburg derived from Brunswick in 1746, Culpeper from Orange in 1749, Cumberland from Goochland in 1749, Southampton from Isle of Wight in 1745, and Chesterfield from Henrico in 1749
