Lords Proprietors grants found in Deed Books

Up until 1729, Carolina was owned by eight Lords Proprietors.  The Lords Proprietors were responsible for issuing the original land grants in North Carolina.  The grants of land from the Lords Proprietors are mostly recorded in the Patent Books at the North Carolina State Archive in Raleigh.  Margaret M Hofmann has published an excellent volume of abstracts of the LP grants in the Patent Books:

However it is clear that the Patent Books are an incomplete record of the Lords Proprietors grants. In an effort to supplement the LP grants abstracted by Hofmann, I present here a list of land grants found in various county deed books in eastern North Carolina.  I have not inspected any of the original deed books myself; I am relying on abstracts published by others.
