Very early on, there was a Washington County that encompassed most of what is now eastern Tennessee (NC ceded it's lands there to the U.S. government in 1790). However, it had ceased to be by the time Washington County in the eastern part of the state (the one covered by this message board) was formed from Tyrrell County in 1799. Tyrrell then went on to cede more land to Washington County in 1801.

Very confusing as same name, but different counties at different times.
