Established November 1, 1738 by an act of the General Assembly, Augusta County extended from the Blue Ridge Mountains on the east to the Mississippi River on the west and from the southern boundary of the Colony north to "the utmost limits of Virginia" in the vicinity of the Great Lakes.

The County was named for Princess Augusta, wife of Frederick, Prince of Wales, son of George II and father of George III. In 1742 William Beverly, the patentee, deeded this site to the County for its Courthouse. Beverley's "Mill Place" was renamed Staunton in honor of Lady Staunton, the wife of Governor Gooch.
