MAPPING SOUTHWEST WAKE (Pt 4)

New finds lead me to increase the size of community I am studying in southwest Wake County. The following map was created using survey plats and descriptions gleaned from original land grants housed at State Archives of North Carolina. Please do not expect this to be perfect as any attempt to reconstruct land histories is fraught with inaccuracies, often arising from differences in interpretation.  I studied the early paper-based Marcom map housed at Olivia Raney Library and have filled in a few gaps and even made a few changes.  I’m sure others will come along and do the same considering this small project was pulled together in a few weeks.  Any thoughts are welcome!

This map and its key below should provide researchers the chance to imagine this place and community of people where their ancestors once lived.   I begin with a few early Granville grants predating Wake County.  Following that are North Carolina Secretary of State land grants issued for land in Wake County. To see the legal descriptions and survey plat all one needs to do is enter the corresponding file number and county into the nclandgrants online query search.

Granville District Grants issued between 1748-1763
by John Lord Carteret, second Earl Granville

    This is great! My Rainey ancestors were in Orange County, by 1735. My branch of the Rainey’s arrived in Tennessee, having left Orange County in about 1843. The Utley’s of Wake County married into my mother’s (Rainey) side, and some of them also wound up in West Tennessee. Whenever I have run into an Utley in west Tennessee, yep, it’s one of them! Thanks, George. Oh, I just found a tree belonging to Norma Guthrie, and she has the Utley’s in my tree, and Brittain and John Utley.

    Great work, George! Ken
