This book continues the work begun in North Carolina Taxpayers, 1701-1786. With the exception of a few lists which were identified as redundant, it includes all the remaining North Carolina tax lists prior to the first federal census of 1790. The two volumes can therefore be used in place of an earlier census to identify individuals in relation to a specific time and place.
The taxpayers’ names are listed in a single alphabetical sequence. In all cases they are listed by county of residence and date, and in some cases additional data is supplied. Counting repeat entries for those whose names appear in more than one list, this volume has the names of about 29,000 taxpayers.
The following are the counties covered: Albemarle, Beaufort, Bertie, Bladen, Brunswick, Bute, Camden, Carteret, Caswell, Chowan, Craven, Currituck, Dobbs, Duplin, Gates, Granville, Halifax, Hertford, Johnston, Jones, Martin, Montgomery, Nash, New Bern District, Northampton, Onslow, Orange, Pasquatank, Perquimans, Pitt, Richmond, Rowan, Rutherford, Sampson, Surry, Tyrrell, Warren, Wayne, and Wilkes.
