New Hanover County, North Carolina
|PLANTATION NAME:||PORTERS NECK PLANTATION|
While doing some research on my family ancestors, I uncovered the following: "Porter's Neck was originally called Governor's Point because Governor Burrington bought it from the first grantee. John Porter bought the property from Albermarle (He owned it from 1723-1734 and died at Rocky Point ) Porter's Neck was then owned by John Porter, the third. Then, Dr. Corbin, Governor Sam Ashe and others. The original tract was divided into two or three. The last owner, prior to 1861 and the Civil War, was N.N. Nixon Esquire, whose peanut crop for 1860 netted him over twenty thousand dollars." If you have any other information on Porter's Neck Plantation, or can direct me to further documents regarding this property, please let me know.
