County History
Established by the British Colonial Government of Virginia, Stafford County was created in 1663 from an area that was previously part of Alexandria (City), Arlington Co, Fairfax Co, Prince William Co and Westmoreland County.  It was named after Staffordshire England.  Marlborough Point was where Pocahontas the Indian Princess was kidnapped.  She was taken to Henricus (Henrico Town).  She married an English Settler named John Rolfe in April of 1614 and converted to Christianity.  Ferry Farm is where George Washington spent much of his childhood.  Stafford Iron Works furnished arms for the American Soldiers during the Revolutionary War.  Stafford County is today considered part of the Metropolitan area of Washington D.C.
