History[edit | edit source]

The first European settlements in North Carolina were along the Albermarle Sound. The Concessions and Agreements of Albermarle Province were written in 1665 with the name being changed to North Carolina in 1691. The Carolina charter was declared null and void in 1706, and Carolinas were divided into two provinces, with governors, in 1712. North Carolina officially became a royal colony of Great Britain in 1729. North Carolina was one of the original 13 colonies of the United States.[1]
