    A Short History of The Historic Albemarle County

    From 'The North Carolina Gazetteer' by William S. Powell:
    ALBEMARLE COUNTY was est. in 1664 in the ne portion of the LordsProprietors' new province of Carolina covering a poorly defined 1,600sq. mi. The first governor of the County was appointed in October,1664, and it soon also had a legislature and courts. By 1668 it wasdivided into Chowan, Currituck, Pasquotank, and Perquimans precincts. The County ceased to exist as a unit of government in Carolina in 1689 when Governor Seth Sothel departed. The next governor had hiscommission for "that part of our province of Carolina that lyes northand east of Cape feare," which was basically the whole of modern North Carolina."

    NOTE: The first governor referenced above is the Governor of ALBEMARLE County and not of CAROLINA.

    Here you will find a more detailed historical outline of the early colonial period. We all should remember that until 1712, there was no NORTH Carolina and SOUTH Carolina but only CAROLINA.
