The Growth of Virginia, 1634-1895:

VA 1751-1760

During the previous decade, about one new county per year had been formed, and this growth moderated only slightly in the 1750s. In 1752 Dinwiddie was taken from the southern portions of Prince George and Halifax from the western lands of Lunenburg. By 1754 there was further activity in the south and northwest. Amelia yielded up Prince Edward, Surry split off Sussex, Bedford came from Lunenburg, and Hampshire was constructed from lands formerly held by Augusta and Frederick. And in 1757 and 1759 Loudoun was derived from Fairfax and Fauquier from Prince William, representing the political separation of the older counties' western quarters.
