Edgecombe County

Edgecombe County was originally formed from Bertie County in 1741 and has undergone many border changes over the years.  Researchers should be aware of the borders for the years they are researching.  Check out the book, The Formation of the North Carolina Counties 1663 to 1943, by David Leroy Corbitt for a detailed history of the county’s border changes.  Also, borders are discussed in the Edgecombe genealogy videos below.  Edgecombe county was named for Richard Edgecombe, who became a Baron in 1742.
