NORTH CAROLINA LOYALISTS DURING THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION

Appendix B - Land Confiscated

Anson to Hyde Counties

Extracts of All Such Grants of Confiscated Property As Are Recorded in the Office by the Secretary of the State of North Carolina

Appendix B contains a list of the real estage that was confiscated and sold in North Carolina. Some counties contained a large number of tracts while others possessed comparatively few. Henry McCulloch was the largest loser. A surprisingly large number of small planters lost their holdings, and for the most part before the Treaty of Peace had been signed. - Robert DeMond

Index to Appendix B Parts

Anson to Hyde Counties

The page numbers presented at the lower right hand corner between horizontal rules are the actual page numbers from the above-mentioned book. I have divided the appendix by county, in alphabetical order. If the name of the county for which you are searching does not appear, it may be because the county did not exist at the time of these records or that there were no records for that county. If you find a name and would like for me to verify that I entered the data in accurately, please send me an e-mail stating your request (including appendix and part). Because the names are listed herein, please refrain from sending lookup requests. You may return to this index by selecting the link at the end of each part.
