Includes North Carolina west to the Blue Ridge mountains, and parts of Virginia and South Carolina. Native American tribes mentioned include the Meherrin, Catawba, and Tuscarora. Shows location of cities, towns, forts, roads, chapels, houses, mountains, rivers, creeks, streams, and rural householders' names. Relief shown by hachures. Depths shown by soundings. Prime meridians: London and Currituck Inlet. A dotted line across the state at 35.5 degrees latitude is probably the Granville Line; the area north of this line, and possibly the soundings, are based on the surveys of William Churton. Cartouche in the lower right corner contains a dedication to George III, surmounted by the Hanoverian crest "To His most Excellent Majesty George the IIId. King of Great Britain, &c. &c. &c. This Map is most humbly dedicated by His Majesty's most humble obedient & dutiful subject. John Collet." The cartouche also contains symbols of the new world including an Indian, an alligator and a wildcat. At upper left: 82° 19' W. Long. from London...6 Degrees of Long. from Currituck Inlet. Library copy: Second state. State 2 (of 2) of the map identified by the depiction of a marshy area below Cross Creek (not evident on State 1).
