New Papyrus Publishing Company's On-Line Catalog:
Independent City of Suffolk

Located in Nansemond couty, which it annexed in its entirety in 1974. First established as a community in 1742, Suffolk was incorporated as a town in 1808, and as a city in 1910. Nansemond County began as Upper Norfolk County in 1637 and was renamed to Nansemond in 1646. In 1972 the city of Nansemond was established by the incorporation of Nansemond County. Two years later, Nansemond city became part of Suffolk. Suffolk is the largest city in Virginia, with a total municipal area of 430 square miles. Yet this size is misleading, for much of the eastern portion of the city comprises half of Virginia's portion of the Great Dismal Swamp, and lowland areas in the southwestern region near the North Carolina border further restricts the possibilities of settlement. Suffolk's municipal records date from 1866, but it also serves as an archival repository for the surviving records of Nansemond County.
