- Biographical or historical data
- Nansemond County, on the south side of the James River, was originally a part of Elizabeth City County. First designated Upper Norfolk County, the name was changed in 1646 to Nansemond County. Three parishes, South, East, and West, were created for Upper Norfolk County in 1643. In time the names by which these parishes were known changed: South Parish became Upper Parish; East Parish became Lower Parish; and West Parish became Chuckatuck Parish. In 1737, Chuckatuck Parish and Lower Parish were merged into one, Suffolk Parish. In 1744, Upper Parish was divided and a part thereof added to Suffolk Parish. After some boundary changes, north of the division line became the Lower Parish, generally known as (Lower) Suffolk, or Chuckatuck, Parish, and south of the line became Upper Parish, generally known as Upper (Suffolk) Parish.
