The county is situated southeast of Richmond and west of Jamestown, and has a southern border on the James River and an eastern border on the Chickahominy River. The area that would become Charles City County was first established as \"Charles Cittie\" by the Virginia Company in 1619. It was one of the first four \"boroughs\" of Virginia, and was named in honor of Prince Charles, who would later become King Charles I of England. After Virginia became a royal colony, the borough was changed to \"Charles City Shire\" in 1634, as one of the five original Shires of Virginia. It was subsequently changed to the present name of Charles City County in 1643. Charles City County is part of the Greater Richmond Region. As of the 2010 census, the county population was 7,256, making it one of smaller counties in Virginia by population. Its county seat is the town of Charles City. Notable natives include the 9th and 10th Presidents of the United States, William Henry Harrison and John Tyler."
