The first permanent settlement (1728) in North Carolina, Edenton is the ''mothertown'' of the State. Edenton at once became the focal point of civilization in the Province, the capital of the Colony and the home of the Royal Governors. Originally incorporated in 1715 as "The Towne on Queen Anne's Creek," and later as "Ye Towne on Mattercommack Creek" and, still later as "The Port of Roanoke," the spot was named Edenton in 1722 in honor of Governor Charles Eden.
