Norfolk County is located in South-Western Ontario. Norfolk County is one of the original nineteen counties established in 1792. It was named for Norfolk, England. The first settlers were United Empire Loyalists who arrived in 1789.

In 1974 the county was dissolved and along with Haldimand County became the regional municipality of Haldimand-Norfolk.

In 2001 the municipality was dissolved and the former counties re-instated as separate municipalites of Haldimand County and Norfolk County.
