County History
Cumberland County was established in 1749 from Goochland County. The county is named for William Augustus, Duke of Cumberland, second son of King George II of Great Britain. Cumberland County was also home to the Fleming family, which included Judge John Fleming and his son Judge William Fleming.

From 1749 until the creation of Powhatan County in 1777, Mosby Tavern served as the county courthouse, and the tavern subsequently became known as "Old Cumberland Courthouse."
