SELLERS IN NORTH CAROLINA

    From: GEORGIA

     In 1587, thirty-three years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth
Rock, an
English Colony was founded on Roanoke Island.  Three years later a supply
ship found no
trace of the colony except for the word "croatoan" carved on a tree.
Virginia Dare,
the first white child born of English parents in America, was among the
missing.

     About 35,000 Indians belonging to about 30 tribes lived in the North
Carolina
region when white people first arrived.  The most important tribes were the
Cherokee in
the western mountains, the Hatteras along the coast and the Catawba,
Chowanoe and
Tuscarora of the coastal plain and the Piedmont regions.

     The first permanent settlement in North Carolina territory was
established in 1653
when groups of settlers came south from Virginia to occupy the section
north of the
Albemarle Sound.  The influx of new settlers was so limited that in an
eighty-year
period the population had increased only to about 14,000.  After 1691 the
province was
called North Carolina and from then until 1711 it was administered by
deputy governors
from South Carolina.

     For several years after 1746, Highland Scot immigrants were arriving
frequently in
North Carolina.  Most of them  established themselves in the southeast
section.  In
just a few short years there were more than 20,000 of them in that area.

     When large groups of Scotch-Irish departed from Pennsylvania down the
Shenandoah

Valley to settle in Virginia, many continued on into North Carolina.  For
religious
reasons they had been banished from Scotland, where their strong Protestant
views irked
the religious leaders.  Thousands of them were transplanted into Ireland
where they
remained long enough to get an opportunity to come to the new world.  Many
of them
established homes in the western section of the state, around the present
region of
Iredell County.

     Many Germans came into North Carolina in the early days.  In 1760
there were about
15,000 in Forsyth and Guilford Counties.  A colony of English speaking
Quakers from
Virginia, Pennsylvania and Nantucket, Massachusetts, settled in Rockingham,
Guilford
and Chatham Counties.  Disliking slavery, they later moved to Ohio and
Indiana.

     Before the Revolution, the Church of England was the established
church in North
Carolina as in Virginia.  Until 1767, only the ordained ministers of that
church and civil officials were permitted by law to perform marriage ceremonies,
although ministers of other denominations married couples.  After 1741, those who
wished to marry could have "banns" published or announced from the pulpit or they
could buy a license.  Those married by license had to furnish a bond.  Surviving
marriage bonds except for Granville and Davie Counties are now in the North Carolina State
Archives.

     None of the parish registers containing records of births, deaths and
marriages for the colonial period have survived and none are known to exist prior to
about 1820 when the Episcopal Church re-entered North Carolina as an organized
denomination.

     North Carolina became the 12th state on 21 Nov 1789.
