See Wayne (old) County, Tennessee for further information about Wayne (new) County, North Carolina.

From 1784 to 1788 Wayne County was claimed by the abortive, short-lived State of Franklin. This County was never recognized by North Carolina, the Southwest Territory, or Tennessee. As a result, the State of Tennessee later used the name on a different county within Tennessee.

In 1789 North Carolina ratified the Constitution, was admitted the union, and ceded her westernmost counties to the United States. The United States used these counties to create the Southwest Territory. This territory became the State of Tennessee in 1796.

Wayne County was part of these western counties now in Tennessee.
