The Growth of Virginia, 1634-1895

VA 1641-50 The decade of the 1640s was a time of political consolidation in Virginia. By 1642 it had been decided to rename several counties. Upper Norfolk became Nansemond; Accawmack became Northampton; Warwick River was simplified to Warwick; and Charles River became York. In 1644 a serious Indian uprising flared in the lightly-settled lands north of the York River. After this was put down, the Chickacoan District, or lands between the Rappahannock and Potomac rivers formerly left as an Indian reserve, was annexed and Northumberland created.
