Albemarle County, North Carolina Genealogy
In 1664 Albemarle County was created as one of the original three counties of the North Carolina charter. Albemarle was the only one of the three to flourish. Albemarle was the area northeast of the Chowan River to the Virginia border. Although growth was slow, settlers trickled in from Virginia.
The four precincts of Shaftesbury/Chowan, Currituck, Pasquotank, and Berkeley/Perquimans had been carved out of Albemarle by October 1668. By 1669 the original Albemarle County had ceased to exist.
Also, for a brief period from about 1680 to the mid-1680s the Pasquotank Precinct was changed to Albemarle Precinct (not to be confused with the much larger Albemarle County), but the precinct residents preferred Pasquotank, so it was changed back.
