Brunswick County Virginia History

This county takes its name from the Duchy of Brunswick-Lunenburg in modern-day Germany

Brunswick County is said to have been named after the Duchy of Brunswick-Lunenburg in modern-day Germany. This is because the county was named, more directly, after the House of Brunswick, which had gained possession of the British throne in 1714. One of the titles of the Hanoverian kings of Britain was that of Duke of Brunswick-Lunenburg.
