Campbell County Virginia


Map of Va: Campbell CountyCampbell County was formed on 1 Feb. 1782 from the eastern portion of Bedford County. It was named in honor of General William Campbell, one of the heroes of the Battle of King's Mountain (1780). Its boundaries were the same as today, except along the northeastern line. In 1845 the northeastern portion of Campbell was cut off to form part of Appomattox County, and in 1848 a small adjustment of this same border saw additional territory transferred to Appomattox's jurisdiction. Campbell county's creation represented geographers often refer to as a "second-order" formation. The earliest population to the area dates from the 1740s, when a group of Presbyterians from Pennsylvania migrated to the region. they were later joined by significant numbers of Quakers. By the end of the Revolution, this group and subsequent settlers in this corner of Bedford County were sufficient in number to petition for their own county, complaining of the great distance to quarterly court and inconvenience of conducting official business.

CAMPBELL CO., VA 1810 CENSUS transcribed by John Vogt. 2013, 10 1/2 x 8 1/2, x, 29 pages, illustrations, map, full name index. This is the first surviving census for Amherst, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. The transcription is in the order in which the enumerator took his census. Thus, neighbors appear together and this will assist the genealogist. Amherst was an important and populous county at the western edge of Virginia's Piedmont with a heavy slave population [5,300+].

This and other 1810 censuses are transcribed by the author from the original images, and while many of Virginia's censuses are available online, they oftentimes are replete with misreadings.Caveat emptor!
