The Founding Of Charles City County, Virginia By The English Virginia Company

Algonquian-speaking Native Americans began to live by the shore of Virginia 800 years before English settlers arrived. After the creation of the first permanent English settlement in Jamestown, the Virginia Company established four boroughs in the Colony of Virginia. In 1619, the Virginia Company named one of their boroughs Charles Cittie, after Prince Charles who would become King Charles I. The Charles Cittie area was later known as Charles City County, Virginia.
