Manakin-Sabot, is a community within Goochland County. Is consists of villages of Manakin and Sabot which date back to the 1700s. Goochland was founded in 1728 and named for Sir William Gooch, 1st Baronet, who was the royal lieutenant governor from 1727 to 1749. As acting royal governor, Gooch promoted settlement of the Virginia backcountry. As a result, the Virginia colony would be insulated from Native American and New France settlements in the Ohio County.
