MATHEWS COUNTY, VIRGINIA (made in 1790/1 from Gloucester Co,VA)

Mathews County, the smallest of Virginia's rural counties, was originally delineated in 1651 as Kingston Parish, a part of Gloucester County. In 1791, the two were separated, and Mathews became an independent county. It was named for a prominent American Revolutionary officer, Major Thomas Mathews of Norfolk, who supported the separation legislation as Speaker of the Virginia House of Delegates. From Cricket Hill, which overlooks Gwynn's Island, Continental cannons drove the last of Virginia's Royal Governors, Lord Dunmore, from Virginia's shores in 1776. The county, whose 94 square miles are surrounded by more than 200 miles of shoreline, is the site of numerous landmarks of historical significance. The county seat is Mathews.
