Northumberland County History

The Virginia General Assembly created Northumberland County in 1648.  Settlement began in the Northern Neck of this area, about 1635.  It was originally known as the Chickacoan Indian District.  The first evidence of the name Northumberland was in 1644, in the colonial records.  Lancaster County and Westmoreland County were created out of Northumberland County in 1652-3.
