County, lying south of the James River at the geographic center of the state,
was established on May 1st, 1761 from the southeastern portion of Albemarle
County. The origin of the county name probably comes from the Duke of
Some sources say that the county was named for Archibald Cary's estate "Buckingham" which was located on Willis Creek. This is the only Buckingham County in the entire United States. In 1778 a small triangular area bordering the James River was given to Cumberland County. In 1845, another part was taken from Buckingham to form the northern portion of Appomattox County. A final adjustment of the Appomattox-Buckingham county line was made in 1860 and Buckingham's borders then became fixed in their current
form. A fire destroyed the courthouse (designed by Thomas Jefferson) in 1869
and most of the early records of this county were lost.
