Pamtecough Precinct, North Carolina


A History of Pamtecough Precinct

Pamtecough Precinct was formed in 1705 from part of the existing Bath County. Click Here for available Executive Council minutes mentioning the creation of Archdale, Pamtecough, and Wickham precincts in 1705 - Colonial Act not found.

In 1712, Pamtecough Precinct was renamed to Beaufort Precinct.

In 1705, one of the sub-divisions of Bath County was named Pamptecough Precinct. This Indian word was gradually anglicized to "Pamlico," now the name of the major waterways upon which Pamtecough bordered, the Pamlico Sound, and the Pamlico River. An even later division (in 1879) created the contemporary Pamlico County.
