From the foregoing it will be seen that of these West Virginia
Counties, two — Hampshire and Berkeley — existed before the Rev-
olution; then Monongalia, Ohio and Greenbrier were formed
during the continuance of that war, and that all others in the list
were created between its close and the year 18(30, Webster being
the last one formed by an Act of the General Assembly of Virginia,
within the limits of West Virginia.

Under the provisions of the first Constitution of Virginia (177G
■ to 1830), each county was entitled to two delegates in the Lower
House of the General Assembly, regardless of population or wealth.
Under the second Constitution (1830 to 1850). th< total member-
ship of the House of Delegates was 1 34, of which number i"- 1
were from West Virginia. It should be stated that upon the or-
ganization of Alexandria county in 1847, the total number in the



1908] West Virginians ix the Virginia Assembly. 103

House was increased to 135. Under the third Constitution (1851
to the division of the State in 1863), the total number of members
in the House of Delegates was 152, of which number 47 were from
West Virginia.

The following shows names of Counties and of representatives
- — Senators and Delegates from West Virginia, so far as can now be
ascertained — from them in the General Assembly of Virginia from
1777 to 1865, — a period of eighty-eight years.

Note. By an Ad of the eni lily passed al the Extra Session, 1776.

the bounds of the old "Distrid of Wesl Augusta," were defined (See First Biennial
Report of this Department, p. 123). By the same Ac1 the said District was divided

into tlin unties Ohio, Monongalia and Yohogania which continued as such

until 17S4, when by the western extension of Mason and Dixon's Line, much the-
larger portion of Yohogania county fell ittt'i Pennsylvania, and the residue in
Virginia, being too small for a separate county, was i>y an Act of Assembly added
to Ohio county. (See Henning's 'Statute at Large,' Vol. XII. p. 114.)

sion.

ttNoTE. — Fnder the Constitutional provision each county was entitled to two
