    This information helps to support any and all claims that, State of North Carolina and subsequent City of __________ are not government and that they have no jurisdiction (subject matter | territorial).

    Royal Charter of North Carolina was titled Carolina Charter of 1663
    5th Charter issued by the British Crown
    1578 Queen Elizabeth issued charter to Sir Humphrey Gilbert (Gilbert perished otw from Newfoundland to England 1583) Grant renewed to his half-brother Sir Walter Raleigh (Virginia region)
    1584 Queen Elizabeth I issued a charter to Sir Walter Raleigh to establish a colony in America
    Expressly included in the queen’s grant of authority was the “power and authority to correct, punish, pardon, governe, and rule” the colony according to “such statutes, lawes and ordinances” that Raleigh and his heirs and assigns deemed necessary for the “better government” of the colony. However, Raleigh was to govern “as neere as conueniently may be” in accordance with the laws of England, and he was prohibited from acting contrary to the interests of the crown.
    1585 Raleigh was not successful after 5 attempt (landed on Roanoke Island 1585) – First English Colony in America aka as the Lost Colony
    1603 Queen Elizabeth I died
    1606 3rd charter, charter of Virginia granted to the Virginia Company of London

    YYYY King James I is her successor (Queen Elizabeth I)

    1653 Evidence 1st successful settlement in North Carolina (private people were more successful than officials with charters)
    1660 Interregnum ended Charles II ascends to the throne
    An interval between reigns.
    The period which elapses between the death of a
    sovereign and the election of another. The vacancy
    which occurs when there is no government.

    1660 Carolina Charter to Sir Robert Heath voided
    1661/1662 Book A of Deeds of Perquimans County March 1 1661/1662 oldest land granted or sold to colonist by “Indians”
    1663 King Charles owes a huge debt to friends who help him restore monarchy restore the thrown grants charter to 8 friends granting land that included North and South Carolina. Vast area of Land extending from VA southward to Spanish Florida and westward to the “South Seas” or Pacific Ocean.
    our right trusty, and right well beloved cousins and counsellors, Edward Earl of Clarendon, our high chancellor of England, and George Duke of Albermarle, master of our horse and captain general of all our forces, our right trusty and well beloved William Lord Craven, John Lord Berkley, our right trusty and well beloved counsellor, Anthony Lord Ashley, chancellor of our exchequer, Sir George Carteret, knight and baronet, vice chamberlain of our household, and our trusty and well beloved Sir William Berkley, knight, and Sir John Colleton, knight and baronet.
    These eight men, and their heirs and assigns, were identified by the charter as “the true and absolute Lords Proprietors” of Carolina. They were to “have, use, exercise, and enjoy” the colony “in as ample a manner as any bishop of Durham in our kingdom of England.” This meant that the Lords Proprietors possessed broad feudal powers to profit from the colony and bore the considerable responsibility of managing and protecting it in the interests of England. They were conferred “full and absolute power . . . for the good and happy government of the said province,” including the power of “enacting . . . laws” (the legislative power), to “duly execute [the laws] upon all people within the said province” (the executive power), and to impose “penalties, imprisonment or any other punishment” (the judicial power).

    1669 Fundamentals of Constitutions
    Circa 1719 South Carolina established by fighting with the 8 proprietors???
    1729 All of the proprietors except Earl of Granville sold their “rights” in Carolina to the Crown.
    1776 State Constitution
    1868 State Constitution
    1947 Word that this 1663 Charter was found in England…widespread interest was immediate various groups, people, historians, other states. It was assumed no other charters survived ravaged times. CT, DE, MD, NY, PA, RI had colonial charters in their possessions. Authenticity verified thru joint effort by British and American historians, contacting the British Public Records Office in London 9/14/1947 the provided a reply about the normal practice of Chancery, in issuing a Commission by Letters Patent. They keep a copy on file (Patent Roll) showcasing the full text but omitting the seal and any embellishments.
    Patent Roll 15, Charles II, part 2. Official reference to this rollis C.66/3033, No.27.
    9/15/947 Yale Univesity implied there are always 2 sets of original copies. According to Lenoard W. Labaree it’s standard procedure to issue two original copies.
