The county is named for John Campbell, Fourth Earl of Loudoun and Governor General of Virginia from 1756–59. Western settlement began in the 1720s and 1730s with Quakers, Scots-Irish, Germans and others moving south from Pennsylvania and Maryland and by English and African slaves moving upriver from Tidewater.By the time of the American Revolution, it was the most populous county in Virginia. In addition, it was rich in agriculture. During the American Revolution, it contributed much of its grain to George Washington’s Continental Army, earning it the nickname “Breadbasket of the Revolution.” During the War of 1812, important Federal documents and government archives were evacuated from Washington and stored at Leesburg for safe keeping. Local tradition holds that these documents were stored at Rokeby House and thus that Leesburg was briefly the capital of the United States.
