Washington Co NC -

Index to Deeds

Davenports 1799-1924

 

This index is found in the Washington Co Courthouse in Plymouth, NC. The index at the courthouse is listed in Deed book number order. I have transcribed the listings for the Davenports and then sorted them into alpha / date order since there are so many entries.

The Washington Co NC courthouse burned in 1862, 1869 and 1873 but the deed records were not damaged. Other records prior to 1873 are hit and miss. If you are interested in other types of records contact the courthouse for information.

Copies of these deeds may be ordered from: Register of Deed, Washington County Courthouse, 120 Adams St, Plymouth, NC 27962-1308: Phone 919-793-5823

Cost is 50 cents a page and most deeds cover 2 pages - please include a self-addressed, stamped, business size (#10) envelope. If you order more than 3 or 4 deeds don't send a self-addressed envelope. Send $1.00 to cover postage and a larger envelope.

  Remember that many deeds used only a person's initials. Initials are found at the top of each section. If the list is split for a letter don't forget to always check the first section.

 

Abbreviations in the deeds: al=and others; D o T=Deed of Trust; R o W=Right of Way; Tmbr=Timber; gdn=guardian; est=estate

Loading will take a bit and I'm sorry about that but I can't get the columns to format correctly for all browsers without using tables.
