  • September - The act establishing the county of Albemarle was passed by the Legislature. Albemarle County was created by separating the northern portion of Goochland County. (Parts of Louisa County were added in 1761 and 1838). In accordance with a custom already begun of commemorating the governors of the Commonwealth, the name of Albemarle was given to the new county, from the title of William Anne Keppel, second Earl of Albemarle, at that time Governor General of the colony.
