Iredell County was formed in 1788 from Rowan. Named in honor of James Iredell, of
Edenton, who was one of the foremost lawyers of the State. In 1788 and 1789 he was one
of the leaders in the State in advocating the adoption of the Constitution of the United
States. His speeches in the Convention of 1788 at Hillsboro were among the ablest
delivered by any of the advocates of the Constitution. Washington appointed him in 1 790
a Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.
