Carteret County was formed in 1722 from Bath. Was named in honor of Sir John
Carteret, afterwards (1744J Earl Granville, one of the Lords Proprietors. When the
other Lords Proprietors sold their shares to the king in 1728 Carteret refused to sell, and
an immense tract of land in North Carolina was laid off as his share in 1744. It was called
the Granville District and was the cause of a great deal of trouble. He lost it by con-
fiscation when the Revolution freed North Carolina from British rule.
