Understanding Land Grants from Lord Granville

April 19 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm EDT


From 1748 to 1776, all new land in the upper half of North Carolina had to be obtained from Lord Granville instead of the King of England.   Vacant land in North Carolina was allocated by the 8 Lords Proprietors from its founding in 1663 until 1729 when 7 of them sold their rights back to the King.  Lord Granville declined to sell his portion, resulting in the unusual situation where he controlled half of the land allocation in North Carolina while the King controlled the rest.   This not only impacted North Carolina politics and history, but also the methods needed to find your ancestor’s land.  And, to top it off, you’ll hear about scandals, corruption, skullduggery (literally), kidnapping, and even armed conflicts!
