History of County Formation
1664: Albemarle County was formed consisting of "all that parte of the province [of Carolina] which lyeth on the north east side or starboard side entering of the river Chowan now named by us Albemarle river together with the Islands and Isletts within tenn leagues thereof." By 1668, Albemarle County was divided into Chowan, Currituck, Pasquotank, and Perquimans precincts for the purposes of local administration. Albemarle County, the superior administrative unit of Carolina, ceased to be recognized as a unit of government in 1689..." [today, that area of North Carolina is still referred to as the "Albemarle Region."] [source for county formation timeline: "The Formation of North Carolina Counties 1663-1943," by David Leroy Corbitt, published by the Division of Archives & History, NC Dept of Cultural Resources]
