Henrico County Virginia

This was the scene of the second settlement in the colony of Virginia. The county was named for Henry, Prince of Wales, the eldest son of King James I of England. William Byrd II is again at work here…between his father & his uncle’s land he owned a large chunk of Va. He would come to be known as the father of Richmond.
