Brief History

test [1]



Companies in this Regiment with the Counties of Origin

Men often enlisted in a company recruited in the counties where they lived though not always. After many battles, companies might be combined because so many men were killed or wounded. However if you are unsure which company your ancestor was in, try the company recruited in his county first.


  Company A  ( McKenney's Eyeteeth) - many men from Norfolk County
  Company B (1st) (Lamb's Herd) - many men from Norfolk County
  Company B. (2nd) (Princess Anne Grays) - many men from Princess Anne County

  Company C (Woodis' Riflemen) - many men from Norfolk County
  Company D (Norfolk Light Infantry) - many men from Norfolk County
  Company D (1st) (Captain John Meyers' Company)- many men from Portsmouth

  Company E (2nd) (Nansemond Guard) - many men from Nansemond County 

  Company F (Seaboard Rifles) - many men from Princess Anne County

  Company G (Company F) (Southern Guard) (Kid Glove) (Silk Stocking Regiment)
