Religious Groups Settled Carteret County

Beaufort, North Carolina The Tuscarora Nation first occupied the land between the Neuse and Pamlico Rivers in eastern North Carolina. As early as 1706, white settlers of Huguenot, German, Scotch-Irish, French, and English descent arrived in the region from Pennsylvania and Virginia. Also, in 1721 Quakers from Rhode Island came with their church families and settled on the north side of the Newport River. However, it was the land grants which mostly helped to populate the region and build its large tobacco plantations. Beaufort, North Carolina is the third oldest town in North Carolina, but it was first named Fishtown. The first Anglican Church in Beaufort was organized in 1724 as St. Johns Parish. However, other religious denominations soon over-populated the parishioners in the English church.

The Discovery of Queen Anne's Revenge

Queen Anne's Revenge It is believe that the frigate ship of Edward Teach (Blackbeard), the Queen Anne's Revenge, has been discovered in the Atlantic Ocean near Beaufort, North Carolina. The vessel was originally launched by the Royal Navy of England in the year of 1710 and was used as a flagship of the pirate. Only after a year out to sea, she was captured by the French and was used as their slave ship until overtaken by pirates in 1717. Blackbeard ran the ship aground in the Beaufort Inlet of North Carolina in 1718 where his crew and supplies were transferred to smaller vessels. In 1996 Intersal, Inc., a private firm, discovered the remains of a vessel likely to be Queen Anne's Revenge, which was added to the US National Register of Historic Places.
