Edenton District Superior Court, Colonial Governors’ Papers and Pension Applications in MARS

Our programmer has just loaded a new version of our online catalog, MARS. Some of the highlights from this update include:

  • Documents from Edenton District Superior Court: Estates Records, 1756-1806 are now available to view via MARS. These materials include: writs, transcripts, narratives, inventories of estates, notes, bonds, appeals, and subpoenas relating to the settlement of estates in the counties under the jurisdiction of the Edenton District Superior Court. These records are arranged into two alphabetical series and the names of some individuals may be located within both of these series. Within MARS, the Edenton District Superior Court records are listed under State Agency Records, District Superior Courts.
  • Documents from the Colonial Governors’ Papers are now also available through MARS, including items from the William Tryon Papers, 1765-1786.
  • The heavily used “Pension Bureau: Act of 1885 Pension Applications” are now listed under “Popular Collections” on the “Class, Collection, Series” Browse screen in order to make them easier to access.
