A NCGenWeb Historical County

Albemarle County, NC Timeline

The North Carolina State Archives has some interesting documents on file about the Colonial years in Carolina.  This Timeline specifically lists the items which involve the Albemarle Region.  As you can see from the below, Albemarle County first became a unit of government in 1663 but was dissolved by 1728.  A short history indeed for the county -- but a rich history in the region itself.  I especially like the comment about the governor that was captured by pirates on his way to serve, and managed to actually start his service as governor after he was released 4 years later!!
