Volusia is an unincorporated community in Volusia County, Florida on the eastern shore of the St. Johns River, about three miles south of Lake George and across the river from the town of Astor in Lake County. Volusia is one of the oldest European settlements in Florida. The main route through the town is State Road 40, which crosses the St. Johns on the Astor Bridge. Volusia County takes its name from the community of Volusia, which was named such by at least as early as 1815. The site of Volusia was an established native settlement by 1558 when its indigenous inhabitants, the Mayaca, were first encountered by Spanish explorers. Since then, it has been the location of several forts, trading posts and a port on the St. Johns River, as well as the site of conflicts with the Seminole people during Florida's tumultuous beginnings. The origin of the name Volusia remains uncertain as there exists no documentation establishing the etymology. There are several theories:



The name came from a word meaning "Land of the Euchee," from the Euchee indians who migrated into the area after the Timucuaindian cultures faded away in the early 18th century. The Euchees (or Uchees) occupied the area between Spring Garden and the southern tip of Lake George. Records prior to 1815 referred to this area as Euchee territory. The name Volusia was spelled as Velutia by the French and Volucia by the Spanish.

The name was taken from the a British man named Voluz who owned a plantation located on the St. Johns River in the late 18th century.

The name originated from the last name Veluche belonging to the French or Belgian owner of the trading post in Volusia. According to some, this was during the British regime, and according to others, it was around 1818. Over time, the name Veluche became anglicized to Volusia.

The town was established by and named for Jere Volusia.

The settlement was named by the Spanish after the celebrated Roman jurist Volusio, who wrote 30 books and tutored Marcus Aurelius, the Roman emperor and philosopher.
