Norfolk County Virginia


Map of Va: Norfolk CountyIn 1636 Elizabeth City County, one of the original eight shires formed in 1634, was divided and the portion south of the James River was designated as New Norfolk County. The following year, 1637, New Norfolk County was also subdivided into Upper Norfolk and Lower Norfolk counties. Upper Norfolk became Nansemond in 1646. In 1691 Lower Norfolk was divided into Princess Anne and Norfolk counties. From Norfolk County came the independent cities of Norfolk and Portsmouth, and the county was finally extinguished in 1963 by being consolidated with the city of South Norfolk to form the City of Chesapeake.
