Biographical or historical data
Hampshire County (West) Virginia, the oldest county in the state of West Virginia, was named for the English shire. Although created by the law in 1754 from sections of Augusta and Frederick Counties, border unrest during the French and Indian War delayed the formal organization of county government until 1757. Part of Augusta and Hardy Counties were added to Hampshire later. Hampshire County was one of the fifty western Virginia counties to form the state of West Virginia in 1863.
