Lunenburg County Probate Records

Lunenburg County Court House Lunenburg County was established on May 1, 1746 from Brunswick County and was is named for the former Duchy of Brunswick-Lunenburg in Germany, because one of the titles also carried by Britain's Hanoverian kings was Duke of Brunswick-Lunenburg. A familiar reference to genealogists is "The Old Free State" and this is because as the War Between the States was approaching reality, Lunenburg County informed the Commonwealth of Virginia that it would break off and join North Carolina if they did not join The Confederacy. Some of the first settlers were: Ziner Gregory, William Taylor, William Ragsdale, William Johnson, William Hood Jr., William Ambrose, Edmund Bacon, George Hatchell, George Clarke, Henry Gill, Green Smithson, Henry Freeman, Edward Jordan, Archibald Hatchell, Bass Fowlke, Baxter Jordan and James Hazlewood.
