Introduction

    Warren County, North Carolina was formed out of Bute County in 1779. On July 22, 1779, one hundred acres of land was purchased from Thomas Christmas and the tract of land was surveyed by his brother William Christmas to lay off the county seat of Warrenton. Beginning in 1780 the first Courts were held in the home of Thomas Christmas until a new courthouse could be built in the town square.

    The Court of Pleas and Quarter Sessions is the lowest court of record in the Warren County, North Carolina area. This court met every three months throughout the year. From a researcher's point of view the names of more people will appear here more than any other single source of records and some names will only appear here. There are deeds that are proved and recorded, administration wills that are proved and intestate records, the construction of county roads and bridges across waterways, the licensing of taverns and eating houses and the tax officials and their districts among other things.
