Historical Information

previous hitMecklenburg next hit previous hitCounty next hit was named, like Charlotte previous hitCounty next hit, for Charlotte of previous hitMecklenburg next hit-Strelitz, consort of George III. It was formed from Lunenburg previous hitCounty next hit in 1764.

The 1870 Virginia Constitution required that each previous hitcounty next hit in the state be divided into no less than three townships (see Article VII, section 2). Based on the New England administrative organization of a previous hitcounty next hit, each township would elect the administration officials for the offices of supervisor, clerk, assessor, collector, commissioner of the roads, overseer of the poor, justice of the peace, and constable. The supervisors of each township would comprise the board of supervisors for the previous hitcounty next hit, and would be responsible for auditing the previous hitcounty next hit accounts, examining the assessors' books, regulating property valuation, and fixing the previous hitcounty next hit levies. The Acts of Assembly provided that each township be divided into school and electoral districts (see Acts of Assembly 1869-1870, Chapter 39). A constitutional amendment in 1874 changed the townships into magisterial districts and each district elected one supervisor, three justices of the peace, one constable, and one overseer of the poor. The supervisors of the districts made up the previous hitcounty next hit board of supervisors whose duties were identical as those set out in 1870. The published Acts of Assembly appended a list of township names by previous hitcounty next hit following the acts for every year that townships existed in Virginia.
