Bladen County, North Carolina, Tax Lists: 1775 through 1789, Volume II


In 1800 and 1893, courthouse fires destroyed most of Bladen’s court records and some of the land deeds. The devastation of Bladen County’s records by these fires has created a void for historians and genealogists alike, which this volume aims to partially fill. The text consists of full transcriptions of loose papers which include wills, deeds, confiscation papers, oaths of allegiance and old tax lists. Slaves’ names abound and members of the Lumbee Indian tribe of North Carolina are listed variously as whites, mulattos and mixed bloods.
