Martin County, North Carolina was formed in 1774 from Halifax County and Tyrrell County. It was named for Josiah Martin, the last royal governor of North Carolina. After American Independence,  Dobbs County and Tryon County named for Martin's predecessors Arthur Dobbs and William Tryon were abolished. Whereas Martin County was neither abolished nor renamed, attributed to the popularity of Alexander Martin, twice governor of North Carolina.
