Hyde Co., North Carolina
1874 Tax List
The following 1874 Hyde County Tax List was transcribed by Sybble Smithwick and contributed by Kay Lynn Midgett Sheppard. The original document is preserved at the North Carolina State Archives in Raleigh, NC. Thanks to both of you.
This data was transcribed as it appeared, and was recorded for five Districts: Currituck, Swan Quarter, Fairfield, Ocracoke, and Lake Landing. While the surnames in each district are recorded alphabetically, i.e. A, B, C... the surnames within each letter of the alphabet are not necessarily alphabetical. Therefore, when searching for a certain name, check the entire letter. Also be aware that there are spelling variations for some of the surnames.
The form used to record the data contained several columns: Name, Age & Race, Acres, Description and Total Tax, however for most of the Districts, data for only two of the columns has been entered: Name and Race.
