Biographical or historical data
Surry County was formed in 1652 from that part of James City County south of the James River. Two parishes which had been created earlier out of James City County, Lawne's Creek Parish (1640) and Southwark Parish (1647), were located in the new county. In 1738 these two parishes were divided, the parts of both parishes north of Blackwater River united into one parish and retained the name Southwark. The parts on the south side of the Blackwater became another distinct parish named Albemarle. With the changes in boundaries, Lawne's Creek Parish became extinct. Sussex County was created from Surry in 1754. Surry County remained in Southwark Parish, while Albemarle Parish contained the new county, as well as a small corner of Surry.
