This article challenges and reevaluates several of historian Julian Boyd's interpretations regarding the appointments of sheriffs in colonial North Carolina. The author uses quantitative evidence from 14 counties, the number of sheriffs who were justices of the peace, the frequency of self-recommendation, the frequency of county court recommendations and the governor's use of independent judgment in the appointment of sheriffs.
