Hancock County was formed in 1844 from Hawkins and Claiborne Counties.
    The County seat is Sneedville.
  Hancock County lies in East Tennessee, one of the state's three "grand divisions" and is bordered by
  Claiborne, Grainger and Hawkins Counties.
    Hancock County is a burned county so there are few early records for it available.

  What is available:
     Deeds- 1879
     Chancery Court Minutes- Aug.1870
     1850-1930 Hancock County Census
*There are a few Chancery Court cases that did survive the fires for years 1797-1930, very
scattered
