Footnotes ...

<1>If you're interested in how the shape of Virginia's counties, including Henrico, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<2>A demonym is the name for a resident of a community which is usually derived from (or is related to) the name of that community. In other words, it's how the residents of Windsor refer to themselves. It's important to note that there aren't any rules for taking a community's name and turning it into a demonym. A demonym is informal and while the majority of Windsor may use one name, keep in mind that others may use something different.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Windsor - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<4>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Windsor) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Windsor.
