Abstracts of Carteret County, North Carolina Deed Books A-F, 1713-1759
Mr. Brayton’s abstracts of the earliest extant deeds for Carteret County tell us a great deal about the origins and identities of its pioneering families. Many of them flowed in from Beaufort, Craven, Pasquotank, and Perquimans counties, North Carolina, and Norfolk County, Virginia. During the nearly fifty years under investigation, dozens of families arrived from New England, including a number whose estate divisions related to Bristol County, Massachusetts. Mr. Brayton has extracted everything from these early deeds possessing a kernel of genealogical value, including the date, names of all parties noted in the deed including prior owners, terms of sale, name and geographical markings of the property, and the names of witnesses. The abstracts identify upwards of 3,000 inhabitants of Carteret County, as revealed in the volumeÔÇÖs name index. To expedite the research process further, Mr. Brayton has also added a location index, and index to slaves, and a list of his previous publications.
