Abstract for: Colonial and state political history of Hertford County, N. C.

Winborne undertook this chronological account of Hertford County (formed in 1759 from Bertie, Chowan, and Northampton Counties) despite the fact that many county records had been destroyed in courthouse fires of 1830 and 1862. He utilized old deeds and wills in private hands, surviving county records, and such sources as the Colonial Records of North Carolina , edited by William L. Saunders, and the State Records of North Carolina , edited by Walter Clark. Winborne corresponded with knowledgeable individuals to obtain additional information. Fifteen chapters cover individual decades, from 1760 through 1900-06. Although the book emphasizes political history, it includes information about education and religion. Included are numerous photographs of prominent men and women and views of two local female colleges. Appendices list public officials at all levels, local attorneys, and information about incorporated places in the county.
