Claiborne County was founded in 1801, created from Grainger and Hawkins counties. It was named in honor of William C. C. Claiborne, who was then governor of the Mississippi Territory. He was judge of the Superior Court of Tennessee, 1796-97, and the representative in Congress, 1797-1801. Later he would become the Governor of Louisiana and was senator-elect from that state at the time of his death.
Tazewell is the county seat.
