Thomas Fairfax, 6th Lord Fairfax of Cameron granted this land to Joseph Amiss and Joseph Bayse around 1763. The land owned by Joseph Amiss was then given to his sons. In 1810, the first post office in Amissville was founded and run by Amiss himself. The small town mostly consisted of the Bayse and Amiss families during that time and the town voted to name the town after the Amiss family, hence the name Amissville.
