== History ==
The {{StateofFranklin}}  East Tennessee county established in 1870. From 1784 to 1788, this land was claimed by the abortive, and short-lived [[State of Franklin|State of Franklin]].  '''Hamblen County''' is named after Tennessee pioneer Hezekiah Hamblen.<ref>[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Tennessee_county_name_etymologies "List of counties in Tennessee,"] Wikipedia.</ref>  The land which eventually became Hamblen County was first organized by the [[State of Franklin|State of Franklin]] in March 1786 from parts of [[Greene County, Tennessee|Greene]] and [[Sullivan County, Tennessee|Sullivan]] counties under the name of [[Spencer County, Tennessee|Spencer]] later [[Hawkins County, Tennessee|Hawkins]] County, and from part of Greene County under the name [[Caswell County, Tennessee|Caswell County]].).<ref>“State of Franklin” in [https://tennesseeencyclopedia.net/entry.php?rec=509 The Tennessee Encyclopedia of History and Culture].</ref>, <ref name="McBride">Robert M. McBride, "Lost Counties of Tennessee," ''[http://www.worldcat.org/oclc/1137265 East Tennessee Historical Society's Publications]'' 38 (1966): 4-5.</ref> However, the Franklin statehood effort faded by 1789. Spencer and Caswell counties existed only briefly, their legality is questionable, and little trace remains.  The records of lost Spencer County are now found [[Spencer County, Tennessee|on the Wiki]]<br> The records of lost Caswell County are now found [[Caswell County, Tennessee|on the Wiki]]<br>  North Carolina and the Southwest Territory did not recognize any of Franklin's new counties. Later in 1786 the North Carolina legislature created a parallel-county of Franklin's Spencer County and called it Hawkins County. It was known by both county names while Frankln's statehood efforts lasted up to 1788.<ref name="McBride" /> Since then the land on which the lost county of Spencer County was located has been called [[Hawkins County, Tennessee]].  In 1792 the Southwest Territory using land from its Greene and Hawkins counties erected a new county named Jefferson County.<ref name="McBride" /> In 1796 all these lands also became part of the new State of Tennessee, and [[Grainger County, Tennessee|Grainger]] County was split off from Hawkins County.  In 1870 Tennessee used parts of Hawkins, Grainger, and Jefferson counties to form Hamblen County.<ref>Alice Eichholz, ed.
