In Reply to: New Bern District Pitt County by Debby Robinson of 798

NC was divided in court districts. Pitt Co. was placed under the jurisdiction of the district court in New Bern (the largest, closest town). So the district was called the New Bern District. The 1790 census was divided into the same districts, as were other governing matters. County lines had nothing to do with the demarkation.
