Currituck County (originally Currituck Precinct) was created from Albemarle County in 1681. Currituck County was a parent county, in part, of Dare and Tyrrell counties. For this book, Mr. Brayton has abstracted the earliest extant deeds for Currituck, complete with metes and bounds. The data found in these abstracts are of great genealogical importance because the deeds are replete with information concerning former owners, relationships between grantee and grantor, and other family connections.
