Greensville Co., VA


Greensville County was formed in 1781 from the eastern and earliest settled portion of Brunswick County. Prior to 1728, most of what is now Greensville County was the southwestern corner of Surry County. The southeastern portion of present-day Greensville known as the "Lowground" area was part of Isle of Wight County, and the extreme northwestern tip of the county fell within the jurisdiction of Prince George County. Some land in present-day Greensville was also issued in the name of Sussex County, Virginia, and Chowan Precinct, North Carolina.
