At this time the 1737 minutes of the Pasquotank County Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions are the earliest minutes of record in the North Carolina State Archives. The hand-writing did create some problems in transcription. Several examples of "look-alikes" are:
PALIN - PALMER WILSON - WILCOX CHANCY - CHANEY SAMUEL - LAMUEL
Reffered - Relfered ee - oo (CAROON or CAREEN?) DANIEL - DAVID r - s (HARE or HASE?)
The stock marks and brands appear to have been recorded anywhere there was space available on a page regardless of date, and not necessarily in chronological order.
For indexing purposes (and to conserve search time) each page of the original document has been assigned a page number. These page numbers which appear in the left margin of the text have been underscored, and are the page numbers used to compile the index. As slaves were usually referred to by their given name only, that name has been used in the index. (Example: "Jack" will be found in the J's.
