First known as Nimcock Creek, this creek was mentioned in a legislative act of 1680 as "Wormley's Creek." After the town of Urbanna was named in 1705 for Queen Anne, the stream was given the same name. British privateersmen entered the creek, June 5, 1781, and pillaged Urbanna and Rosegill, the plantation of Sir Richard Wormeley.
