The county was formed in 1741 from Bertie County. It was named for Richard Edgcumbe, a Member of Parliament from 1701 to 1742 and a lord of the treasury, who became 1st Baron Edgcumbe in 1742.

In 1746 part of Edgecombe County became Granville County; in 1758 another part became Halifax County; in 1777 yet another part became Nash County. In 1855 the formation of Wilson County from parts of Edgecombe County, Johnston County, Nash County, and Wayne County reduced Edgecombe to its present dimensions, aside from minor boundary adjustments.

chrisd on “Daniel”

I am trying to link William Daniel b. 1780-85 m. Sarah Self to Basil Daniel b.~1775. I believe they are both related to Jeremiah Daniel b.~1750in Edgecombe but have not been able to see proof of any links.




Cleta Terrell on “BREWINGTON FAMILY”

Our son-in-law is descended from James Masterson BREWINGTON who was born 1790 in Edgecombe County, supposedly the son of Benjamin Brewington and Jane Lytle. I am trying to determine if this line is
of the Croatan Indians or possibly the Coharies of North Carolina.
