Overview

Lawrence County was created by act of the Territorial Legislature of February 4, 1818. Formed from territory acquired by the Cherokee and Chicasa cession of 1816.

It was named for Federal Navy Capt. James Lawrence of New Jersey, who was in command of the "Hornet" 1n 1813, when he fought and captured the "Peacock," British man-o'war, and who fought the "Chesapeake" in a disastrous battle with the British frigate "Shannon," off Boston June 1, 1813.

The early settlers of the county came from Virginia, Tennessee and the Carolinas. A settlement was first made at Marathon (Melton's Bluff) on the Tennessee River, about two miles above the present Lock A. Court was first held at that place but in 1820 the seat of government of the county was moved to Moulton. Many of the early settlers of Lawrence County were veterans or children of veterans of the Revolutionary War.
