Warwick County Virginia


Map of Va: Warwick CountyWarwick River was an original shire, established in 1634. It was first known as Warwick River, but the name was changed to simply Warwick in 1642/43. The county was named either for Robert Rich, earl of Warwick, a prominent member of the London company, or for the county of Warwick in England. In 1882 the independent city of Newport News was created from a portion of Warwick, and Warwick County itself became an independent city on 1 July 1952. The county name was extinguished when it was consolidated with the city of Newport News on 1 July 1958. Virtually all of the county's records were destroyed by occupying Union troops during the Civil War.

WARWICK CO., VA 1810 CENSUS transcribed, with an index by John Vogt. 10 1/2 x 8 1/2, x, 8 pages, illustrations, map, index. This is the first surviving census for Warwick, since both the 1790 and 1800 censuses have been lost. A complete index is included for easy access. Warwick was an important Chesapeake county with a heavy slave population outnumbering the white population three to two, and the census record covers 143 households. The manuscript itself is faded but readable, and every name in the document has been recovered. This document should be a complement to the fine work of Roger Ward (below) on land taxes in the county.
