WAKE

Wake County was formed in 1771 from Johnston, Cumberland, and Orange. Was
named in honor of Governor Tryon's wife, whose maiden name was Margaret Wake.
Some historians say that the county was named for "Ester Wake," the popular sister of
Tryon's wife, but there is no reason to suppose that any such person ever existed. She is
purely a creature of the imagination.
