Nottoway County Virginia
Nottoway County was formed in 1788 from the southern portion of lands belonging to Amelia County. The new county was named for an Indian tribe (Nadowa) which had lived in the vicinity. In 1792 the boundary between these two counties was adjusted to conform to the existing line between Raleigh and Nottoway parishes; the county has remained stable since.
During the final week of the Civil War, in April 1865, Federal troops raided the Nottoway clerk's office and hacked the record books with sabers; they then threw the mutilated volumes into a horse trough. Several early order books, deed and will books, were badly mutilated, and marriage records prior to 1865 were destroyed through this senseless vandalism.
