Formed From: Albemarle County
Buckingham County was named for either the English county or for the duke of Buckingham. Some sources say that the county's namesake is Archibald Cary's tract of land called Buckingham, on what was then Willis's Creek. It was formed from Albemarle County in 1761. Its area is 582 square miles, and the county seat is Buckingham. The population is 15,623 according to the 2000 census.
Note: Buckingham is one of the Commonwealth's Burned Records Counties. Its county court records were destroyed by fire in 1869. One plat book survived and some wills and deeds were later recorded.
