No idea, but I have the same book as you have with the dates of wills 1733-1856. yes Edgecombe did not become a county within itself until 1741. There is somewhat of an explanation on page xi...."Although Edcombe county did not enjoy a truly independent organization until Northhamption County was severed from Bertie County in 1741, it had been established as an effective precinct, to all pratical purposes on may 16, 1732. and had been named for Sir Richard Edgcombe, later Baron Edgecombe who was Lord of the British Treasury at that time. The Edgecombe County wills actually began with one in the year 1733 and were probated by the clerk of the Bertie County Court prior to 1741, but after that date Edgecombe County had its own Clerk and Court.
