A History of Brook Field, North Carolina

Pasquotank County was formed as early as 1668 as a precinct of the original Albemarle County. Its name is derived from an Indian word pasketanki which meant "where the current of the stream divides or forks." It is in the northeastern section of the state and is bounded by Albemarle Sound and Perquimans, Gates, and Camden counties.

It is not known when the first courthouse was built, but from 1737 to 1757 the court house was at Brook Field. In 1758, it was moved to Relfe's Point. It remained there until 1765, when the county seat was moved to Winfield.
