The following collections contain information on close to 5,000 grants which have not yet
been indexed on this website and are therefore not searchable. These records are also
not part of the online MARS database and until now were are only available using the card catalog
located at the State Archives of North Carolina Search Room. Each collection consists of images from that card
catalog, with each index card representing a land grant. These will be added to the searchable database
on this website as time permits.
NO COUNTY GIVEN
This collection contains grants that were recorded in the land patent book, but the county
was not specified. Many of these were prior to the establishment of counties in North Carolina, but
it is possible in some cases to deduce the county based on the geographical description. In other
cases the county appears to have been accidentally left off when the patent book was copied, so
it also may possibly be deduced.
LORD PROPRIETORS GRANTS
This collection contains grants made by the Lord Proprietors in the county of Albemarle. These
are recorded in patent books 111A-D.
LORD GRANVILLE GRANTS
This collection contains a series of grants made in the Granville district.
