Accomack County was established in the Virginia colony in 1634. It was one of the eight original counties of Virginia. The county’s name comes from a Native American word meaning “the other shore”.

In 1642, the name of the county was changed to Northampton. In 1663, Northampton was divided into two counties. The northern county took the name Accomack while the southern retained the name Northampton.
