It is unclear whether Wilcox County is named for General Mark Wilcox, a Georgia state legislator and one of the founders of the Georgia Supreme Court, or if it is named for his son John Wilcox. The formation of the county was led by Norman McDuffie of Pulaski County, Georgia. It was formed on December 22, 1857 from parts of Irwin, Pulaski, and Dooly counties.

Jefferson Davis, President of The Confederate States of America spent his last night in Wilcox County, before being captured by Union troops. His capture marked the end of the Confederacy.
