Hyde County, NC Native Surname Marriage Records

Contributors to this article originally published in the Lost Colony Research Group Newsletter include Kay Lynn Sheppard and Baylus Brooks.

Surprisingly, the Hyde County, NC marriage records have never been transcribed and published.  Generally, marriage records are some of the first ones available.  While working on a research paper about the Mattamuskeet in Hyde County, I needed marriage records, so both Kay Lynn Sheppard and Baylus Brooks came to my rescue.  Kay Lynn had a list of the marriages by bride, and she provided that information to about 1900, but she didn’t have the grooms.  Baylus went to the archives at ECU in Greenville, found the Hyde County marriage books on microfilm and copied those pages for me.  Guess what?  It’s a goldmine!  There were a lot of marriages involving our surnames of interest.

Out of the various Mattamuskeet related documents, we find a small list of Native surnames we are attempting to track forward, as follows:

  • Elks
  • Barber
  • Collins
  • Eden
  • Mackey
  • Longton
  • Russell
  • Squires
  • Timothy

Some of these surnames seem to have died out, but others are quite prevalent. 

Unfortunately, the marriage records for Hyde County prior to about 1850 are missing.  That means there is a gap in records from 1823 when this part of Hyde County was taken from Currituck of about 27 years.  Many of the couples in the census from 1850 through 1900 or so were married during the period of missing marriages.  Unfortunately, unless alternate methods can be established to ascertain maiden names, many of the wives will go unidentified relative to their ancestral family.

We’ve transcribed the marriages below that are relevant to our surnames of interest. If you descend from one these families, we want to hear from you.  These could be the descendants of the Lost Colonists.

  9. beverly Spencer says:

    My great great grandfather is Jack Barber who Married Zonnie Spencer in the mid 1800’s. They were Hatteras Indians. Their son was my great grandfather- Nathaniel Barber who escaped from Hyde County into Bath where as a Indian fugitive he changed his name to Nathaniel Spencer and he married Hattie Spencer. I am looking for any sisters and brothers. I am trying to find the names of Jack Barber’s parents and any of his sisters and brothers. They all lived in and around the reservation. I would greatly appreciate your sharing any information. I do have a picture of Nathaniel when he was approximately 20 years old after he escaped.
