Abstracts of Edgecombe County, North Carolina Wills 1733-1856


Edgecombe County was created in 1741 from Bertie County. Even though these wills begin before the creation of the county, they do begin with the creation of the Edgecombe Precinct. Wills are a wonderful tool for genealogical research, due to the many and varying types of family members that are mentioned within. This book not only contains the wills of the individuals, but also guardians & administrators bonds, bastardy, apprentices, trustees, sheriffs & treasures bonds, and inventories of estates.
