WAKE

Wake County was formed in 1770 from Johnston, Cumberland, and Orange.
Was named in honor of Governor Tryon's wife, whose maiden name was Mar-
garet Wake. Some historians say that the county was named for "Esther 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.
