Botetourt County History

Botetourt County was established in 1770 from Augusta County. The county is named for Norborne Berkeley, Baron de Botetourt, more commonly known as Lord Botetourt, (1718-1770), who was a popular governor of the Virginia Colony from 1768 to 1770, when he died suddenly while in office. 

In the 1770s and 1780s, when Virginia claimed most of the Northwest Territory which would later form all or part of six states, the land was divided between Botetourt and Augusta Counties.
