St Johns County was one of the two original counties when Florida was organized as a territory in 1822, the other being Escambia County. That same year a sizeable portion was removed to create Duval County and the following year, 1823, another portion was removed to create Monroe County. In 1824, another portion was removed to create Alachua County. Escambia County encompassed the Florida panhandle but all of eastern Florida traces back to St Johns County originally. From 1824 to 1849, St Johns County maintained its same boundaries but in 1849 a portion was removed, along with portions of Alachua, Marion, and Orange, to become Putnam County. The last alteration to St Johns County's boundaries was in 1917 when the southern portion, along with a portion of Volusia County, was removed to become Flagler County. Presently St Johns County is bounded on the east by the Atlantic Ocean, on the north by Duval County, on the west by Clay and Putnam Counties and on the south by Flagler County.
