"Backcountry" generally means the rural parts (of Virginia, where this all happened) or the lesser-known parts. They were newer settlement areas, and generally had a far larger population than the older "tidewater" region. How did this mean they were underrepresented / not represented in the House of Burgesses?

Was it because the newer regions were not yet established as actual counties, and thus not able to serve in politics?
