Members of an English voyage of exploration landed in the area in 1603, four years before the founding of the Jamestown Colony. Captain John Smith visited the region in 1608. The Accawmacke nation at the time numbered around 2000, and were governed by Debedeavon, a paramount chief called by the English the “Laughing King”. He became a staunch ally of the English newcomers, granting them several large areas for their own use.
Accomac Shire was established in 1634 as one of the eight original shires of Virginia. The name comes from the native word Accawmack, which meant “on the other side”. In 1642 the name was changed to Northampton, following a policy of eliminating “heathen names”. Northampton was divided into two counties in 1663. The northern adopted the original name, while the south remained Northampton. In 1940, the General Assembly officially added a “k” to the end of the county’s name to arrive at its current spelling.
Accomack is also home to world famous fishing on the bay and ocean side. It should not surprise you then that fresh seafood can be found as well. It is home to the world famous Assateague and Chincoteague Island known for the annual pony roundup from one island across the creeks to the other. https://www.nps.gov/asis/index.htm
Wallops island is also in Accomack. The island is primarily used for NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility, including the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport, although the name also refers to the peninsula area surrounding the island for the purpose of mailing addresses. The Wallops Island National Wildlife Refuge is located on the island. https://www.nasa.gov/centers/wallops/home
