Deed Abstracts of Tyron, Lincoln and Rutherford Counties, N.C. 1769-1786 and Tryon County Wills & Estates.. abstracted by: Brent Holcomb, C.R.S.

Tryon County was formed from Mecklenburg County in 1769, Mecklenburg having been formed from Anson County in 1763. At its formation, Tryon County extended north to Earl Granville's line and west to the Indian line of 1767 (a portion of which is now the line between Greenville and Spartanburg Counties, South Carolina). The eastern boundary was the Catawba River. Tryon County included all or part of the North Carolina counties of Lincoln, Gaston, Cleveland, Rutherford, Henderson, Folk, Burke and McDowell and the South Carolina counties of York, Chester, Union, Cherokee, Spartanburg, Greenville, Laurens and Newberry. While no land grants from Tryon County may have fallen as far south as Laurens or Newberry counties, the lands which were granted earlier from Mecklenburg and Anson counties came under the jurisdiction of Tyron County, e.g. the deed from Jacob and Mary Pennington to Alexander Lockart, page 28 (372-375) and the deed from John and Martha Dickinson to John Patton, pg 32 (433).

The first courts of Tryon County were held in what is now York County, South Carolina. The court house site was moved into present Gaston County, NC, when the border survery of 1772 determined the other site to be in SC. When the border survey was made, the SC county system as we know it was not yet set up. The Tryon County lands south of the border were then in Craven or Berkley (sometimes spelled Barkley) counties and/or Camden or Ninety Six District, or occasionally St. Mark's Parish was used for location. After the border survey, the lands formely granted by NC were registered in the SC Land Memorials and often called "North Patents". SC issued new grants for some of these lands; e.g. the grant to Giles Connel S.C. Royal Grants, Vol 33, pg 208 and the grant to James Gibbs, SC Royal Grants, Vol 33, pg 252.

The few remaining wills and estate papers of Tryon County are in the NC

Archive filed with the Lincoln County Records. All those pertaining to

Tryon County are abstracted here as well as the lists of wills and estates


The copies of the Tryon deeds abstracted here are those in the Lincoln County Court House (Lincoln Volumes 1 & 2). While some of the original deed books are extant, they are not complete and some are in poor condition. However, they have been compared to the Lincoln copies, and the Lincoln copies are quite accurate and legible. There are some gaps in the deeds, but this does not signify that any recorded deeds have been lost. These gaps correspond with gaps in the Minutes of the Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions. Apparently, the court did not function at certain times for one reason or another.

The Lincoln deeds are abstracted here to the end of Vol II (1786). Tryon County was abolished in 1779 to form Lincoln and Rutherford Counties. The Rutherford Deeds are abstracted for the same period, Vol A-D actually going on to 1787. This will take the Rutherford abstracts up to the point where Mrs. Caroline Davis began her work. As would be expected, some Tryon deeds were recorded late, after Lincoln and Rutherford Counties were formed. What may not be expected are the occasional deeds involving SC lands recorded in these counties.

These deeds, wills and estates should provide many missing links for the researcher working on the Carolina frontier. This is a continuation of my abstract of records of Anson & Mecklenbury Counties soon to be completed. Brent H. Holcomb, G.R.S., Oct 8, 1976
