Andersons of Colonial N. Carolina

so I start this site in Virginia… go figure

Carolus Anderson/ Thomas Pitman property

leave a comment »

The Carolus property is pretty exact considering the extant references of the Wm. Byrd survey of 1728. Don’t put too much stock in the other outlying patents because this map is still “in the works”.

The “Holliman” patent may be way off as I cannot find the “little swamp”… other patents have similar problems of placement.  Consider these as simply “in the area”.

NC Colonial Records (William Byrd survey)

Patents can be found in Library of Virginia online patents

These are raw patents and do no show the numerous sales and swaps between landowners.
