Pasquotank County was a portion of the area of North Carolina that was earliest settled. It was a portion of Albemarle County which was established in 1663. The name Pasquotank comes from the Pasquotank River. Pasquotank is from an Algonquin word pasketanki meaning “where the current of the stream divides or forks”.

The first settlement was Nixonton along the Little River and was planned out in 1746 and incorporated by 1758 and was the county seat from 1785-1799. In 1799 the county seat was moved to Elizabethton which had been founded in 1793 at the narrows of the Pasquotank River.

Local folklore holds that the Brick House in Elizabethton was used as a headquarters of Edward Teach – the infamous pirate “Blackbeard”. The house though only dates to the 1750s and Edward Teach died in 1718 however there may have been a structure on the property dating to 1709.
