Pamtecough County, North Carolina


A History of Pamtecough County
Pamtecough County (precinct) was formed in 1705 from part of the existing Bath County. In 1712, Pamtecough County was renamed to Beaufort County.
In 1705, one of the sub-divisions of Bath County was named Pamptecough County. This Indian word was gradually anglicized to "Pamlico," now the name of the major waterways upon which Pamtecough bordered, the Pamlico Sound, and the Pamlico River. An even later division (in 1879) created the contemporary Pamlico County.
