Hertford Co. NC Genealogy Records #northcarolinapioneers

Hertford County Wills and Estates

Parker's FerryThe Meherrin Indian Tribes removed from Virginia in 1706 and settled on a reservation abandoned by the Chowanoke Indians which was located near Parkers Ferry at the mouth of the Meherrin River. Today, this same tribe resides within 10 to 15 miles of the former reservation and is recognized by the State of North Carolina. Hertford County was formed in 1759 from parts of Bertie, Chowan and Northampton Counties. It was named after the first Earl of Hertford (later the first Marquess of Hertford), Francis Seymour-Conway. In 1779 the northeastern part of Hertford County was combined with parts of Chowan County and Perquimans County to form Gates County. County seat is Winton. The first Will Book of 1829 to 1867 survived with but six legible wills. However, the indexes are somewhat legible, so you can get an idea of the names of all of the first testators.
