Rowan Co. NC Wills, Genealogy, Estates #ncgenealogy #northcarolinapioneerscom

Rowan County Wills and Estates

Kerr MillThe first Europeans to enter what is now Rowan County came with the Spanish expedition of Juan Pardo in 1567. They established a fort and a mission in the native village of Guatari, believed to be located near the Yadkin River and inhabited by the Wateree. At the time, the area was ruled by a female chief the Spaniards called Guatari Mico. Rockingham County was formed in 1753 from the northern part of Anson County. It was named for Matthew Rowan, acting governor of North Carolina from 1753 to 1754.During 1770 the eastern part of it was combined with the western part of Orange County to become Guilford County, North Carolina. In 1771 the northeastern part of what remained of Rowan County became Surry County. In 1777 the western part of Rowan County became Burke County. In 1788 the western part of the now much smaller Rowan County became Iredell County. In 1822 the eastern part of the still shrinking county became Davidson County. Finally, in 1836 the part of Rowan County north of the South Yadkin River became Davie County. Many of the Rowan County records, wills, estates, etc. are intact. It is usually researched in conjunction with Surry, Burke and Iredell Counties. Some of the earliest settlers were: Henry Aginder, Erasmus Allen, Thomas Braly, William Barr, Daniel Bates, Henry Bruner, William Bartholomew, Michael Cove, Alex Carruth, Nathan Dicks, Hannel Edwards, George Erwin, Peter Fox, Stephen Glandon, John Holmes, Robert Johnson, Peter King, Peter Lawrence, Andrew Maden, Joshua Nichols, William Ogburn, William Porter, David Rothera, and John Thompson.

Sampson County Wills, Estates, Genealogies

Sampson, NC
Sampson County was organized in 1784 and taken from neighboring county of Duplin. Land from neighboring Wayne County and New Hanover counties would be annexed later. The settlers were Scotch-Irish immigrants from North Ireland, many of who came to the colony of North Carolina under the protection and inducements of Henry McCulloch, a wealthy London merchant. The community of Taylors Bridge, located about halfway between Clinton and Harrells in lower Sampson County (at the time Duplin County), was one of the earliest European settled areas of the county, with pioneer families living there as early as the 1730s or 1740s. The Swiss from New Bern came into this area during the mid-eighteenth century. The county was named after Lieutenant General John Sampson, the first mayor of Wilmington, North Carolina.
