Henry Gannett, Esq., Chairman
Ex. Committee, etc:
Dear Sir: Yours to our City
Clerk has been handed to me with
request that I would reply to it.
From the earliest information
that I can obtain up to the year
1862 the name of the town was
jpelled Newbern. The name under
which it was chartered was New
bern. I send you a bound copy of
the Acts of the General Assembly
published in'1793. By reference to
it you will see the laws passed by
the General Assembly which was
then held at Newbern, N. C, while
under King George the II and King
George III. In numerous places,
in fact all over the book, reference
is made to the town of Newbern, N.
C. One among the very first acts
is in regard to Newbern, N.
C, dating back to 1715.
I send you a copy of the charter of
the town of Newbern, chartered by
act of General Assembly in 1723.
A number of amendment shave been
made but no change has legally been
made in spelling Newbern. New
bern was settledjand named in 1710.
Incorporated 1723.
I send you a copy of the Acts of
the GenerallAssembly held at Eden
ton, N. C, George I, the 23d day
of November, 1723: Whereas, A
certain plot of ground was formerly
laid out into a township by the name
of Newbern, same is declared, con
firmed, and incorporated into a
township by the name of Newbern.'
