Described
Biographical or historical data
  • Sussex County was named for the English county, and was formed from Surry County by a statute adopted in 1753. The county court first met on 30 May 1754. The county seat is Sussex.
  • The Constitution of 1869 placed the sheriff's tax collection function in the new office of treasurer, who was both the cashier and the bookkeeper of the county. During the township period (1870-1875) the township collector and clerk also had treasurer's functions; later the county treasurer's duties were expanded to include the township officer's activities.
