In North Carolina¿s proprietary period (1663¿1729), the primary means of acquiring land was by headright. A free person was allowed to claim a specified amount of land for each person, including himself/herself, that he/she transported into the colony for the purpose of settlement. While the amount of land attached to a headright varied throughout the era, the most common amount was fifty acres.A headright entry contains a considerable amount of information: the name of the person claiming the headright(s), the acreage of the claim and its general physical location, and the number of and names of the individuals being transported into the colony for settlement. The entries often describe the relationships between the grantee and the individuals. In many instances the headright entry is the only surviving document recording an individual¿s presence in the colony.
