Families to Wilmington, North Carolina

From 1749 to about 1858, there are a number of last wills and testaments of persons from foreign countries into New Hanover County, North Carolina.  The names are de Kopet; Boissel; Veuve Le Gros; Futch, McKay; McKellar; Ancrum; Hellett; Kirkby; Bourdeaux, Doty.  Wills are available on North Carolina Pioneers   The first known English settlement was in 1732 upon land owned by John Watson along the Cape Fear River.  The first royal Governor Gabriel Johnston established a provincial government in Wilmington about 1739.  Later on, people migrated from the Albemarle and Pamlico regions, Virginia and South Carolina.  However, most settlers arrived from the northern colonies and the West Indies.  Those persons heretofore named must have come in from the West Indies.
