Buckingham County Genealogy, Wills and Estates
Buckingham County appears to have been named after the Duke of Buckingham in Buckinghamshire, England and was established on May 1, 1761 from the southeastern portion of Albemarle County. In 1778 a small triangular area bordering the James River was given to Cumberland County. In 1845, another part was taken from Buckingham to form the northern portion of Appomattox County. A final adjustment of the Appomattox-Buckingham county line was made in 1860 and Buckingham's borders then became fixed in their current form. Thomas Jefferson was the architect of the court house which was destroyed by fire in 1869. Most of the records were lost. The wills which are listed here survived and were digitized for the convenience of the genealogist.
