In the early 1720's, Edmund moved into Bertie County in the area of Cashie's neck and lived on the south side of the Roanoke River, in the area of Smithwick Creek in present day Martin County.
Albemarle County was formed in 1664 but by 1670 part of it had been split into Chowan and Perquimans Precincts. Bertie County was formed in 1722 from Chowan. Tyrrell County was formed in 1729 from Chowan, Bertie and other parts of the Albemarle Sound region. See Map of the North Carolina Counties in 1740. Martin County was formed in 1774 from Tyrrell and Halifax counties. See Map of the North Carolina Counties in 1780.
