Abstract:
THE DICTIONARY OF AMERICAN BIOGRAPHY is accepted by many as America's record of distinguished performance. In North Carolina, the Ashe family stands out with five listings, and is seen as an historical first family of the State. The first Ashe in the colony was John Baptista, building a plantation in the Cape Fear section of the colony, and by the 1720s was Speaker of the Colonial Assembly.
