Washington Co NC was formed in 1799 from Tyrrell County NC

It is bounded by: Bertie, Beaufort, Hyde, Martin and Tyrrell counties

The courthouse is located in Plymouth, NC and was burned in 1862, 1869 & 1873. Deed records survived all the fires and are intact from 1799 to present. Marriage records are available from 1851 to present. Court minutes for the superior court start in 1822. Most other records begin in 1873 after the last fire. Birth & Death recording began in 1913 and records are at the courthouse.
