Hertford Co. NC Images of Wills and Testaments now available on North Carolina Pioneers.com


Hertford County Probate Records



Parker's FerryMeherrin RiverSite of Parkers Ferry and the Meherrin River. The Meherrin Indian Tribes removed from Virginia in 1706 and settled on a reservation abandoned by the Chowanoke Indians which was located near Parkers Ferry at the mouth of the Meherrin River. Today, this same tribe resides within 10 to 15 miles of the former reservation and is recognized by the State of North Carolina. Hertford County was formed in 1759 from parts of Bertie, Chowan and Northampton Counties. It was named after the first Earl of Hertford (later the first Marquess of Hertford), Francis Seymour-Conway. In 1779 the northeastern part of Hertford County was combined with parts of Chowan County and Perquimans County to form Gates County. County seat is Winton.

The first Will Book of 1829 to 1867 survived with but six legible wills. However, the indexes are somewhat legible, so you can get an idea of the names of all of the first testators.

Gastonia: Heart of the North Carolina Settlement



Gastonia

Gaston County Wills and Estates. 

Do you have ancestors who resided around Gastonia, North Carolina?  A vast population of early settlers stopped on the Catawba River.  Find out if any of these names were your ancestors.

The first settlers to in the Catawba and Cherokee region were in the region by the mid 1700s and were of German, Dutch, English, and Scotch-Irish origin. A fort was constructed along the Catawba and South Fork Rivers, however, most of the Cherokees had left by 1770 and the Catawba Indians removed to Fort Mill, South Carolina. Gaston County was founded in 1846 and named for William Gastson, a Congressman and North Carolina Supreme Court justice. The original commissioners of the county were ordered to establish a county seat within two miles of the Long Creek Baptist Meeting House, and they named the seat Dallas, in honor of Vice President George Dallas. Yet, a popular 1911 vote made Gastonia the county seat. Bessemer City, Cherryville, High Shoals, Lowell, McAdenville, Ranlo, Stanley, Spencer, and Mount Holly are other communities within the boundaries of Gaston County. The county seat is Gastonia (pictured).
