The county was formed in 1750 from New Hanover County. It was named for Thomas Hay, Viscount Dupplin, later 9th Earl of Kinnoull.

One of Duplin’s favorite sons, John Miller, was a postmaster and merchant in Duplin. He migrated to Leon County, Florida, with other North Carolinians in the 1830s-1840s and established a successful cotton plantation called Miccosukee Plantation.

In 1784 the western part of Duplin County became Sampson County. Source Wikipedia

The county seat of Duplin County is Kenansville and the county is divided into the following townships: Albertson, Cypress Creek, Faison, Glisson, Island Creek, Kenansville, Limestone, Magnolia, Rockfish, Rose Hill, Smith, Warsaw, and Wolfscrape.
