Tryon County Genealogy Records

Tryon County is a former county which was located in the U.S. state of North Carolina. It was formed in 1768 from the part of Mecklenburg County west of the Catawba River, although the legislative act that created it did not become effective until April 10, 1769. Tryon County encompassed a large area of northwestern South Carolina and was named after William Tryon, governor of the North Carolina Colony from 1765 to 1771. The county seat was not designated until 1774 and was located eight miles southwest of the present-day community of Lincolnton.
