Appomattox County Virginia
Appomattox County was formed on 1 May 1845 from portions of Buckingham, Campbell, Charlotte, and Prince Edward counties. The new county was named for an Indian tribe which had once resided at the mouth of the river by the same name which rises in the county. In 1848 an additional parcel of Campbell County was added to Appomattox, and in 1860 there was a slight adjustment in the Appomattox-Buckingham boundary. There have been no changes since that time.
Almost all of the county's early records were destroyed by a courthouse fire in 1892, consequently, there are very few Appomattox County records in the Virginia State Library.
