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 Margaret 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.
