  County History  
 
 
     
 
 
  Hillsborough County was created on January 25, 1834 from Alachua and Monroe counties. It was named for Wills Hill, the Earl of Hillsborough and British Secretary of State for the Colonies from 1768-1772. The county's original boundaries in 1834 included the present-day counties of Charlotte, DeSoto, Hardee, Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, Polk and Sarasota. The last significant change in Hillsborough County's borders was the separation of its western section to create Pinellas County in 1911.
