Digital Images of Campbell County, Virginia Wills

Campbell County, Virginia Court House Records



Campbell County Court HouseCampbell County was first settled in the early 1730s by Scotch-Irish families. It was named after Revolutionary War hero, General William Campbell who became famouse when he defeated the Tories and Loyalists at the Battle of Kings Mountain. In 1757, John Lynch, son of one of the first Quaker families, operated a ferry service which crossed the James River and ultimately helped to populate the present city of Lynchburg. Meanwhile, Lynchs brother, Charles, developed Green Level (now Avoca), located in present day Altavista. Lynchburg was officially created from Campbell County land in 1786. Fifty acres of land donated by Jeremiah Rust in 1784 became the county seat of Rustburg. Brookneal, a busy intersection of trails on the Staunton River, was founded in 1802. Patrick Henry himself removed to Campbell County after having served five terms as Governor of Virginia and developed his Red Hill Plantation. When Henry died on June 6, 1799, he was buried at Red Hill and today the plantation is a public shrine to his memory. Campbell County was named for William Campbell, one of the heroes of the Battle of Kings Mountain in 1780. The county was formed in 1781 from the county of Bedford and was the first Virginia county to be formed after the Revolutionary War.
