“North Carolina Land Grants”

Dr. A. Bruce Pruitt

Land grants in North Carolina were issued by the Virginia Governor, eight Lords Proprietor, King George II and III, the Earl of Granville, and the State. This lecture will discuss these grants that were issued between 1663 and 1960.

Dr. A. Bruce Pruitt, author, publisher, historian, and genealogist, received degrees in physics from Presbyterian College and Clemson University. He has published a multitude of books about land entries, land warrants, and land grants in North Carolina, grants in Tennessee when it was part of North Carolina, and books on plats in South Carolina. He also published abstracts of deeds in Anson County, Craven County, Guilford County, Lincoln County, and New Hanover County in North Carolina and deeds for Pendleton District, Greenville County, and Spartanburg County in South Carolina. Dr. Pruitt received awards from NCGS for his work in 1988, 1995, 2009, and 2015. He is a member of the National Genealogical Society, and both the North Carolina and South Carolina Genealogical Societies.
