Stokes County Wills and Estates

Hanging Rock

Stokes County was formed in 1789 from Surry County and was named for Capain John Stokes, who was wounded during the American Revolutionary War when the cavalry of British Colonel Banastre Tarleton almost destroyed the Virginia Regiment led by Colonel Abraham Buford in the Waxhaws region in 1780. After the war, Captain Stokes was appointed a judge of the United States district court for North Carolina. In 1849 the southern half of Stokes County became Forsyth County. The county seat is Danbury.
