European settlement near the Pamlico River in the 1690s led to the creation of Bath. It was North Carolina's first town in 1705. The town's location was ideal with easy access to the river and the Atlantic Ocean 50 miles away at Ocracoke Inlet.
In 1723 the first Beaufort County courthouse was built in the town. In 1734 the construction on St. Thomas Church, oldest existing church in the state began. About that time a ferry service was established across the Pamlico River, and a post road linked Bath to New Bern and Edenton.
By 1708 Bath, NC, consisted of twelve houses and something like 50 people. Tobacco was important, the trade in the naval stores was good, and furs were also traded. Bath became the first port of entry into North Carolina. In 1707 a grist mill was build and the colony's first shipyard were established in town.
Early Bath, NC, was disturbed by political rivalries, epidemics, Indian wars, and piracy. In 1711 Cary's Rebellion began. It was an armed struggle over religion and politics in the colony. And in 1711 an epidemic of yellow fever and a severe drought occurred.

It took 1242 pages to tell the Mills story and it can be read in Mills Heritage, which is my most recent book. It was finished in Oct of 2004. Since I have three different Mills families, it seemed only fitting that I be the one to unscrambled the family lines. The Mills family I wrote about is described in the boxes below and is not related to the Quaker Mills families of Maryland, Pennsylvania, and NC.
