Dates of existence


The County of Richmond was surveyed at the end of the 18th century and settled by Loyalists from the United States. Elmore Cushing and his 46 associates were the first to be granted a township, the Township of Shipton. Subsequently, the County witnessed the arrival of British immigrants, (mainly from Wales, Ireland, and Scotland). In the mid-19th century, French-Canadian colonization began. The first villages to be established were Richmond, Danville, and Windsor, Richmond being incorporated in 1862. The District of St. Francis, created in 1823, organized a circuit court for Richmond County in 1843.
