Digital Images of Northampton Co. VA Wills

Northampton County, Virginia Court House Records

Northampton County Court House Northampton County probably was created in 1694 and was first called Accawmack. The name was changed by legislative action in 1643. As early as 1648, the terms of the county court of Northampton were held in two places. Six years afterwards, the justices adopted a resolution that they would meet on the 28th day of each month in Mr. Walter Williams' residence, which was situated near Hungars Creek. The erection of a permanent court-house was taken into consideration in the year of 1664, and "ye towne fields betwixt ye Ware Creek and ye Maine Creek" was chosen as the most appropriate site. Six years later, an Act of Assembly having authorized the voters of the county to choose a site for a new court-house, the freeholders and householders, who alone enjoyed the suffrage, were summoned by the justices to meet at the old court-house, on an appointed day, to declare their preference.
