Randolph County Virginia
Randolph County was formed in 1787
from the southeastern lands of Harrison County. It was named for Edmund Randolph, Virginia statesman and from 1786 to 1788 governor
of the Virginia Commonwealth. In 1818 Randolph surrendered land to both Nicholas and Lewis counties. Part of Randolph also was given
to newly-formed Pocahontas County in 1821. In 1828 Preston County was given the extreme northeast corner of Randolph, and additional
lands were granted to Preston County from Randolph in 1838. Portions were annexed by Barbour and Braxton counties in 1843 and 1849,
respectively. More land from Randolph went to Upshur County (1851, 1865), Tucker County (1856), and Webster County (1860, 1863).
By 1865 Randolph had achieved its current boundaries.
