List of Tythes (Partial)


Transcribed by W.W. Forehand and Dawn Barnard Eskins 2002

DEskins note: Working originals consist of two pages (copied from one large page) containing a total of six columns of names. Original copies have corroded along the center fold line and along the lower edges. Additionally the bottom left quadrant of the first page is almost completely destroyed. The date of W.W. Forehand's transcription is unknown however it appears to have been done when page 1 was more intact.

First page columns 1-3 and second page column 4 details records for Pasquotank County outside what is now Camden County. Camden County's listings begin under the subhead No East Side River. It also appears that there is a missing column on the right with (possibly) 39 more names.:
