Martin County was formed in 1774 from parts of Halifax and Tyrrell Counties. The county seat of Martin County is Williamston. The county was named for the last royal Governor of North Carolina, Josiah Martin (Governor from 1771-1775). Probably due to the popularity of Governor Alexander Martin (twice Governer 1782-1784 and 1789-1792), this namesake county was not abolished like those of his predecessors, Tryon and Dobbs.

The following townships are in Martin County: Bear Grass, Cross Roads, Goose Nest, Griffins, Hamilton, Jamesville, Poplar Point, Robersonville, Williams, and Williamston.

Overlooking the Roanoke River is the Fort Branch Civil war site, known as “the best preserved earthwork Civil War Site east of the Mississippi.” The first of November is when an annual re-enactment is held. Fort Branch Civil War Site.
