Abstract:
Exploration of the Cape Fear Region began in the 17th-century when prospectors recognized potential for agriculture and timber exploitation. Two men, David Williams and Henry Skibbow, purchased 100 acres of land to become Exeter or New Exeter. The area was to be formally incorporated as a town in 1754. Expectations were for Exeter to become a viable port on the Cape Fear, however, by 1770 it was excluded from customs legislation indicating failure to become a trade center.

In colonial North Carolina over 90 percent of the colonists got their livelihoods from the land. However, they faced problems modern farmers do not. Colonists had no heavy machinery for plowing and clearing the land. There were no fertilizers and pesticides. Wild animals devoured crops. There were no weather forecasters. Still they persevered, raising enough crops and animals to feed themselves and others and producing enough farm and timber products for export to England and the West Indies.
