Goochland County Overview

Founded in 1728, Goochland County in Virginia was named for Sir William Gooch, 1st Baronet, to the royal lieutenant governor. The population in the county, as of the 2010 census was 21,717. Several historic homes still exist in the county, which has a total area of 281 square miles of land, plus eight square miles of water. Adjacent counties are: Fluvanna to the west, Cumberland to the southwest, Powhatan to the south, Henrico to the east, Hanover to the northeast, and Louisa to the north. Sponsored by the Daughters of the Confederacy, a monument to the Confederate effort was erected on the Goochland Courthouse green. It was unveiled on June 22, 1918. Among those in attendance was Robert E. Lee, grandson of General Robert E. Lee. Thomas Jefferson, at Shadwell, then within the boundaries of the county grew up in the area. As a child he was schooled along with his friend Thomas at the Randolph’s’ Tuckahoe Plantation in Goochland County.
