These are not scanned images of pages from one of the original published copies, but new, clean, re-typed pages set in a large, easy-to-read typeface. This is a book you'll be proud to pass on to future generations of your family which recounts their North Carolina heritage.
More precisely, this book contains the records of some of the very first immigrants to the Carolina Colony beginning in 1660. Taken from the extant original record books of the counties of old Albemarle, Perquimans, Pasquotank and Tyrrell.
Surnames discussed in varying degrees of detail include: Brooks, Davis, Barnes, Boyd, Baptist, Palin, Mullen (Moulin), Weeks, Durant, Barclift (Bartlett), Montfort., Blount, Chauncey, Chancey & Symons, Symonds, Eliot, Halsey, Hicks, Luten, Jones, Knox, Morgan, Nicholson, Nixon, Perry, Kilgore, Lambeth, Lambuth, McDaniell, McDonald, Garrett, Spruill, Spruell, Sprule, and Wynne.
The following is Mrs. Lambeth's introduction to the book:
If these memoirs seem too personal, I should like to say that they are written primarily for my children, in order that they, who have spent almost their entire lives in another state, may know something of the place and the people from whom they sprang. In publishing my family lines, I do so with no thought that I have more ancestors than other people, or that they are more distinguished, but first, in order to preserve them for my children, and posterity. Secondly, with the hope that they may be of service to others in establishing collateral lines. And thirdly, because they are part of the history and every day living of the Albermarle Section of North Carolina, from the days of the red men, to the death of my Grandmother, in 1917.
To my uncle, Dr. Stephen B. Weeks, who labored so untiringly to preserve the history of North Carolina, I am indebted for my George Durant and Thomas Weeks lines. Much of my information I received from my Grandmother, who raised me, Mrs. Mary Frances Spruill Davis, daughter of Gen. Hezekiah G. Spruill, of Tyrrell and Washington Counties, and wife of William Hith Davis, II of Pasquotank. To Mrs. Watson Winslow I wish to express my sincere appreciation for the valuable work she has accomplished in her History of Perquimans County, which book enabled me to work out a number of my Perquimans County lines. Mistakes will have been made, but I have striven for accuracy. In many cases I have stopped a line until I could examine the deeds for additional proof, which deeds, I find, contain as much information as the wills. This is work which any good genealogist can continue, and I leave them to my children, or any interested relatives. I am also indebted to Mr. J. R. B. Hathaway, for his North Carolina Historical and Genealogical Register, and to Mr. J. Bryan Grimes for his North Carolina Wills. I would like to say that I do not consider myself an historian, only a lover of history and research. One of the historical works which I have accomplished is the reproduction of Ft. Nashborough, the second settlement in Tennessee, on the banks of the Cumberland River, in Nashville.
I was chairman of this work before and during the building of this fort and for many years thereafter. It was done under the auspices of the Tennessee Daughters of the American Revolution, and with the active assistance of the then four Nashville Chapters, namely, Col. Thomas McRory, Cumberland, Campbell, and Gen. James Robertson.
The land for this reproduction was furnished by the city of Nashville, the money given by the city of Nashville, Davidson County, and the state of Tennessee. It is, I believe, the only large D. A. R. Memorial which was built, and is being maintained, entirely without any expenditure from the Daughters of the American Revolution. A complete report of this work will be found in the proceedings of the 28th state conference of the Tennessee Daughters of the American Revolution in Chattanooga November 1933. This work was done before the depression, when labor was high, and funds for such purpose scarce.
