Edgecombe was formed in 1741 from Bertie County
( Map), then became part of Granville
County in 1754 ( Map),
Bute was formed in 1764 ( Map),
and finally Warren in 1779 ( Map).
Bute was the Prime Minister of King George III
and the residents did not like that so they split up Bute County into Franklin
and Warren Counties.
See map of the region in 1746
