Godfrey County.—This county was created by the first territorial legislature, with the following boundaries: "Beginning at the southeast corner of Greenwood county; thence south to the southern boundary of the territory; thence west 24 miles; thence north to the southwest corner of Greenwood; thence east 24 miles to the place of beginning."

In the original act the name is spelled "Godfroy." It was attached to Allen county for civil and military purposes and was never organized as an independent political division of the state. By the act of June 3, 1861, the name was changed to Seward county, in honor of William H. Seward, and subsequently the territory was divided into the present counties of Elk and Chautauqua.
