The Growth of Virginia, 1634-1895:

VA 1731-1740
During the 1730s there was further expansion in both the southern districts as well as in the northwest. In 1731 and 1734, respectively, the northeast saw Prince William form from Stafford and King George and Orange from Spotsylvania. An act drafted in 1720 to create Brunswick from Prince George was passed in 1732 once the population there had become numerous enough to warrant a separate government. By 1735 the profitable production of tobacco in this region had fostered enough further immigration so that Amelia was created from Prince George and Brunswick. It should be observed that interest in the area increased partly because of the survey party reports made when Col. William Byrd and his group passed through the borderlands of Virginia and Carolina.

1731 - Prince William (Stafford, King George)
1732 - Brunswick (Prince George)
1734 - Orange (Spotsylvania)
1735 - Amelia (Prince George, Brunswick)
