Northumberland County Genealogy, Wills, Estates, Marriages, Indexes to Deeds and Orders


Burgess, Virginia

Northumberland County was formed about 1645, although not authorized until 1648, rom the district of Chickacoan, the early-seventeenth-century name for the region between the Potomac and the Rappahannock rivers. Its area is 223 square miles, and the county seat is Heathsville. The population is 12,259 according to the 2000 census. Courthouse Suffered some loss in a fire in the clerk's office on 25 October 1710. Birth and Death Records from 1650-1810 are located in the St. Stephens Parish. There being no court house in Northumberland in 1658, the judges met in a house probably used as a public tavern. But it was not until five years later that the court-house construction was begun. Before that, the justices held their sessions at the residences of Colonels Richard Lee and Peter Ashton. The building was situated at Fairfield and was made of wood. Therefore, in 1680, it was necessary to build another one. Source: Northumberland County Records, vol. 1652-66, p. 188; Orders Nov. 22, 1658; March 11, 1680. Virginia Historical Tidbits.
