Carolina Under the Lords Proprietors' Rule

21st House of Burgesses - 1724-1725

Governor George Burrington arrived in North Carolina and took the oath of office on January 15, 1723/24. He was was succeeded by Sir Richard Everard on July 17, 1725.

In April of 1724, Thomas Swann, Speaker of the House of Burgesses, appeared and asserted that the Governor and the Executive Council needed to re-allow new Land Patents in Bath County. They agreed.

On April 3, 1725, Governor George Burrington prorogued the General Assembly until July.

Although there are many records of the Executive Council under Governor George Burrington, this Author has not found any records of the General Assembly during his first administration from 1724-1725.
