Painesville, the county seat, was incorporated in 1832 and named after General Edward Paine (1746–1841), one of the early settlers of the Western Reserve, who settled in the area around 1800 and represented the region in the territorial legislature. Paine had served as a captain in the Connecticut militia during the American Revolutionary War. When the plat of land was laid in 1805 its original name was Champion after General Henry Champion.
