Biographical or historical data
  • Richmond, located between Henrico and Chesterfield Counties, was named by William Byrd II, who envisioned the development of a city at the falls of the James River and with the help of William Mayo laid out the town in 1737. Richmond was established in 1742 and in 1779 was designated the capital of Richmond effective April 1780. It was incorporated as a city in 1842. Richmond was enlarged by annexation of Manchester (or South Richmond) in 1910, and by the addition of Barton Heights, Fairmount, and Highland Park in 1914.
  • Fifth Street Baptist Church was organized in 1880 from First (African) Baptist Church in Richmond. The Reverend A.E. Edwards was pastor of the church circa 1905 to 1908, when the congregation sought the return of the previous pastor.
