Currituck County Research Information
Cordinator - none
Currituck County was formed in 1668 from Albemarle.
For those who don't know, Currituck County was the
early county that incorporated the entire seaboard area between
Albemarle Sound and Pamlico Sound. In 1729/1739 the top portion
became Tyrrell and in 1745 the bottom became Hyde. Later, in 1870
the Tyrrell part from the Alligator River to the sound along with the
outer banks islands became Dare County.

Free People of Color - by County - 1790 Federal Census
A cross-reference using surnames, known names of Indian families, and historic
In researching Indian ancestry,
it's important to note that for a variety of reasons in history (usually
economic or socio-political), Indian people were often recorded as any race
other than Indian. Sometimes "White," other times "Black,"
or "Negro," and other times "Free Person of Color,"
"Colored," or "Mulatto."
The entries below have been taken from transcriptions of the 1790 Federal
Census for several eastern North Carolina counties. The notes in the right
column correlate to the 1790 county/family names to the left. Known Indian
villages are given with modern-day equivalent town names, as well as any
surnames that appear as "Other Free" on the 1790 census that are
surnames also found amongst known Indians in documents (deeds, court records,
Please keep in mind that just because someone is of a particular surname that
has at some point been associated with a particular tribe DOES NOT NECESSARILY
mean that the person was of that tribe. It is necessary to establish a
"preponderance of evidence" before making the assumption that someone
was of a particular Indian nation.

Currituck County, Deed Book 3 – This book holds recopied deeds, the oldest deeds of the county, and the ones before the 1729/1739 formation of Tyrrell and the 1745 incorporation of the southern part of Currituck into Hyde.
NOTE: Deed Book 3 begins in the 1730's, meanders backwards and forwards in time to the 1710's and 1750's, and then jumps abruptly into the first years of the nineteenth century. It contains the oldest group of deeds, which were recopied by the register and so noted. The recopying of the oldest deeds in Deed Book 3 resulted in the misinterpretation of the date of writing, presenting, and recording in the deeds. The reader will see that from time to time the dates of presentation in court are later than those of the original recording. One solution to this involves the practice of observing the old calendar versus the new. For instance, in Deed Bk. 3, pg. 13, it lists the dates as 19 Nov 1739, 1 Jan 1739 and 26 Mar 1739. The most reasonable explanation for this discrepancy is that the two latter dates should be written 1739/40, a facet of dating that was ignored by the nineteenth century clerks who recopied these deeds. At times, however, there is no explanation for a discrepancy in the sequencing of dates. Such must be attributed to scribal error. [A note at the beginning of the book says]: According to note p. 22 the below were copied herein in 1800. The middle of this book pp. 86 to 123 contains the earliest deeds of record in this county. They date from 1696 to 1713. The beginning from 1735 to 1740. The end from 1796 to 1805. Book two has 1761 to 1790 with a few re-recorded 1704 etc. deeds as on pp. 327 and 416 (1719).
