Pasquotank County, in the northeastern part of North Carolina, is one of what might be called North Carolina's "finger counties," the narrow and long Currituck, Camden, Pasquotank, Perquimans, and Chowan Counties. These were some of the first settled areas in colonial North Carolina, and all were part of Albemarle County, which was established in 1663. Their long thin shape comes from their being centered on various rivers running into Albemarle Sound. Pasquotank County was centered around the Pasquotank River, but in 1777, Camden County was formed out of that part of Pasquotank County northeast of the Pasquotank River, while present-day Pasquotank County — all 226.84 square miles and 35,000 people — remains those lands south of the Pasquotank River running to the north bank of the Little River. – www.co.pasquotank.nc.us, accessed September, 2011.
