Northampton County History

In 1662, Free Blacks in America were first known to be in Northampton Co VA.  The county has a long history, in the era of slavery, as a home for free Blacks.  This county was included in the peninsula south of Maryland originally, and one of the established eight shires in 1694.  Northampton was originally called Accawmack.  In 1643 it was changed to Northampton.
