The county was formed December 3, 1705, as Wickham Precinct, one of three precincts within Bath County. The name “Wickham” was derived from the manor of “Temple Wycombe” in Buckinghamshire, United Kingdom, the family home of John Archdale, Governor of North and South Carolina from 1695 to 1696. In 1712 it was renamed Hyde Precinct, for Edward Hyde, Governor of North Carolina from 1711 to 1712. In 1739 Bath County was abolished, and Hyde Precinct became Hyde County.

Various boundary adjustments followed. In 1745 Lake Mattamuskeet and its adjoining territory were transferred from Currituck County to Hyde County. In 1819 the part of Hyde County west of the Pungo River was annexed to Beaufort County. In 1823 the part of Currituck County south of New Inlet was annexed to Hyde County. In 1845 Ocracoke Island was transferred from Carteret County to Hyde County. In 1870 Hyde County was reduced to its present dimensions, when its northeastern part was combined with parts of Currituck County and Tyrrell County to form Dare County. Source Wikipedia

lisaew54 on “Emory/Emery family”

Hello all,

I am interested in any information you may have about the Emory/Emery family line. The earliest member I have is William Thomas Emory b. 1832 (?) who married a Lydia and then a Sarah. Not sure how far back to go when one of these ancestors moved to Pamlico…or if they were there and then it was re-named Pamlico, not sure how that worked. But would love any information you may have.

Thanks!
Lisa




Scrapelineranch on “Linton families”

I am researching Linton’s in N.C. possibly Hyde Co. My g.g.grandfather was John B. Linton (J.B.) b.1815 N.C. migrated to Coffee, Tn. 1851. He married either a Nancy Bullock or a Nancy Powers in N.C. Possibly from the line of Linton’s Burrage H., Luke, David, John, or Samuel. I would love corresponding with any relation or someone who has information. Thank You, Bob Taylor.
