Bullitt County Probate Records

Bullitt County was founded in 1796 and the county seat is Shepherdsville. It was named after the nephew of Thomas Bullitt, Governor Alexander Scott Bullitt, who served as the first Lieutenant Governor. The land was taken from Jefferson and Nelson counties through an act approved on December 13, 1796 by the Kentucky General Assembly. In 1811, the northwestern area of the county expanded to include land given by Jefferson County and in 1824 an eastern area of the county was given to help form Spencer County.
