Biographical or historical data
  • Scott County was formed from Lee, Russell and Washington counties by a statute adopted on 24 November 1814. The county court first met on 14 February 1815. Scott County was named for General Winfied Scott, a native of Virginia, in recognition of his victories during the War of 1812. General Scott was later commanding general of the American army during the war with Mexico.
  • The Circuit Superior Court of Law and Chancery was created in 1831 to take the place of the Superior Court of Law and the Superior Court of Chancery. Sessions were held twice yearly in each county. This court was abolished by the Virginia constitution of 1851 and replaced by the Circuit Court.
