Since coming to Transylvuuia
county, about six years uro, the
writer has been told by many peo
ple that they were “born in Bnn-
eombe, raised in Henderson and
now live in Transylvania, and have
never moved in my life.” This
seeming paradox is quit« trno when
the f^peaker was horn prior to 1838,
for it was in that year that this
.‘Section, as a ])art of Henderson
ctiunty, was severed from Dun-
But the territory now embraced
i;i 'I’runsylvania county has been a
])«rt of more than three counties.
Inoltiding that part that was at one
time a part of Haywood, then Jtick-
son and now Transylvania, this
county has been connected, re-
suotely in some cases, it is true,
witli at least fifteen county govern-
tnents since the time the state was
first settled. This article will be
devoted to the county’s pedigree,
showiii;? these various connections.
In 1()(>3 the northern part of
rurolina, which then included what
is now both North and South Curo-
lir.a, was givi-n the name of Albe-
ma.b- prefinct. This precinct, or
1‘v^untr, iiJc’.TiiUd all the territorj’
jiow♦■inbim’ed in the states of North
t arolina and Tennessee, although
very little of it was settled at that
time. In lfiG.5 the Lords ProprietOJ's
entered into an agreement with
John Yeamans whereby the section
now in Transylvania became a part
of Clarendon precinct. This pre
cinct was abandoned in 1GC7 but
was S'.'ttled again in 1093.
Prior to ITiS'J, when the state of
Tennessee was ceded to the United
States, the method of establishing
nev,' counties was to locate a eastern
boundary, giving all east of the line
the name ol the old county, while
uli west of the line went into the
new county, the western boundary
being the Mississi]ipi river. In this
mann*^r the counties started on the
‘•oast, gradually working westward,
the westernmost county always in
cluding the mountain section. In
17::.’2 New Hanover was cut off from
ADx^marle and Clarendon. Transyl-
vaiii.'i next fell in as a part of Bladen
precinct in 1734.
The next division threw the
western part of the state into
An.^o*i county, this being the first
time the word county was supplied,
t!ie divisions being referred to as
p»-ecincts before that time. Anson
county was established in 1849. A
part of Ausun wus taken to form
Rowan in 17rj3, this county being
named in honor of Matthew Rowan,
the president of the council, who
was at that time acting governor.
While Arthur Dobbs was gover
nor of the state, Mecklenburg coun
ty was formed out of a part of
Ai.son in 1702, nnd this section
then became a part of Mecklen
burg. Soon after the movement of
settlers to the rich lands in tre
west made it inconvenient for the
people to attend county matters at
Charlotte, a new county was form
ed. This was called Try on county.
of Robert Morris, who financed the
Revolution, and who had large
holdings of timber lands in this
section. This name was changed
to Asheville in November, 1797, in
honor of Samuel Ashe, one time
governor of the state.

In 1S3H Henderson county was
cat off Buncombe. Henderson was
tho first western county to have a
defined boundary lino, all previous
lines being a matter of supposition.
Transylvania county was formed
in 1S61, the act establishing the
county being ratified by the general
assembly on the 15th day of Feb
ruary of that year. About two
thirds of the county came from
Henderson, w’^hile the other third

1. years prior to i’.o divison of
i'ryon county, Burke county was
foinitd from a part of Rowan, and
tiie western section of Tryon took
the name of Ruthertord. It is quite
probable that a part of the present
county of Transylvania was in each
of the counties of Burke and
Rutherford. The dividing line was
never established. Lands now in
Transylvania were entered in both
counties, and both seemingly were
treated as authentic.
In 1791, after the state had ceded
the state of Tennessee to the
national government, the county
of Bnncombo was formed, taking
part of both Burke and Rntherford
