Abstracts of the Land Records of Granville County, North Carolina: Dockets H-M, O, N, 1765-1793


Trudie Davis-Long continues the series of land and property record abstracts originally begun by Bonnie Zae Hargett Gwynn for Granville County, North Carolina. This volume is a guide to the original documents that are housed at the Granville County Courthouse in Oxford, North Carolina, and the North Carolina State Archives. This work covers Book H (1765–1768), Book I (1769–1772), Book K (1772–1775), Book L (1775–1778), Book M (1755–1779), Book O (1779–1790) and Book N (1790–1793) of the original docket books and includes a full-name, line, and place index. Items of questionable interpretation were checked against microfilm of the original courthouse records.

Entries typically include the full names of the person selling the land and the buyer, the amount paid, number of acres and location, line, and names of witnesses. Some entries may also list the name of spouse, place of residence (county and state), details regarding property and its division, and/or other related tidbits of interest. Surnames are printed in bold.

There were handwritten notes on the original Gwynn manuscript, which have been included here. Obvious spelling errors were corrected, and some punctuation was changed; however, all names are spelled as listed in the manuscript.
