      Description:
      This database is abstracted from a book published by the Tarboro (Edgecombe County, North Carolina, U.S.A.) Historical Society in 1881 (with an addendum in 1920), called Early Families of Edgecombe County, North Carolina, Its Past and Present. The book is divided into two sections: the first is a general history of Edgecombe County, and the second is a biography of about 2,000 families in the area. The book covers approximately 280 years and roughly five or six generations.

      The birthplace and parents of Francis Wilkes are unknown but it may be supposed that he was born in eastern Virginia. A Francis Wilks was involved in Bacon's Rebellion there and was banished from that area. Francis died in Edgecombe County in 1745. The records of that county show: Wilks, Francis, inventory taken by his "real widow" Grace Wilkes, 20 May 1745.

      A deed in Halifax County shows that Francis purchased 200 acres of land Steven's Pocosin on 29 June 1774 and that he was a resident of Edgecombe at that time.
