Return to Currituck Co.

Albemarle Co., NC Rent Roll of Land c. 1694-1696
From: Albemarle Co., NC Miscellaneous Records
From N.C. State Archives - Microfilm Roll C.002.10001 (located near the end of the reel)

This list of some early residents of Currituck Precinct is abstracted from a longer list which includes residents of Pasquotank, Perquimans, Chowan and Currituck Precincts in the County of Albemarle. The list is not dated, but a note, presumably written by someone at the North Carolina State Archives reads “Pre 1698.” The list is signed by “Wm. Glover, Cl. Office.” Glover is known to have been a clerk of the General Court in the mid 1690s. A Thomas Sherwood of Pasquotank Precinct died with a will by April 1694, leaving half his plantation to his daughter, Sarah. A Sarah Sherwood of Pasquotank is on this list, but Thomas Sherwood is not, indicating that the list was probably written after mid-1694. There is a Richd. "Cragg" listed as a resident of Pasquotank Precinct. A Richard "Craig" died with a will in Pasquotank by April 1696. Likewise, an Arthur Workman of Pasquotank is on the list and an Arthur Workman's will was proved in Pasquotank in Oct. of 1697. Thus, the approximate date range of 1694-1696. Only those people who are known or thought to have lived in Currituck Precinct are listed below.  This is not a complete list of the residents of Currituck.
