Currituck County, North Carolina 1764-1776; Vol. 1
Unknown Deed Book
Microfilmed by the NC State Archives in 1976; Microfilm #C.030.4002

Note from Lois Meekins, the compiler: This microfilm of deed records does not specify any particular book number.  Deeds from this time period should be found in Currituck Deed Book 2 but deeds from this film are not found in that book nor were they listed in the Currituck County Cross Index to Deeds from 1761-1873.  This film was hard to read and the book was evidently in bad condition when filmed.  In each deed it lists the place where the grantor & grantee reside.  If I have not stated the place in the abstract, then they were mentioned as being "of Currituck county and Provence of North Carolina".  At the top of some of the first pages of this film is stamped "Chicago Historical Society".  The first page on the microfilm was 31.
