Historical Information

Between 1820 and 1827 the name of the business changed from Samuel Read and Company to Read, Montgomerie and Company and finally to Read and Montgomerie.

Amherst County was named for Major General Jeffery Amherst, British commander in North America during the latter part of the French and Indian War and governor of Virginia from 1759 to 1768. It was formed from Albemarle County in 1761. Islands in the Fluvanna (now the James) River were added in 1770.
