Guilford County
Families:  Tomlinson
County Formed:  1771 [S1, page 173]
County Seat:  Greensboro  [S1, page 173] - Home of Robert Lindsay (1771-1774); Guilford Court House (1774-1785); Martinsville (1787-1808); Greensboro (1808-Present).
Courthouse fire of 1872 resulted on some loss of records. 
Parent Counties:  Rowan, Orange  [S1, page 173]
-  "Guilford was formed in 1771 from Orange and Rowan Counties.  Randolph (1779) and Rockingham (1785) were formed from Guilford"  [S1, page 307]
- Rowan County - About 1764 includes the Western part of present-day Guilford County [S1, Map, page 186]
- Guilford County was formed in 1771 and included present-day Rockingham, Guilford, and Randolph Counties  [S1, Map, page 187]
- By 1779 Guilford, Rockingham, and Randolph had become separate Counties  [S1, Map, page 188]

The law creating Guilford County was passed in 1770, and the county started administration of its territory on April 1, 1771. Any land records prior to that time will be in the records of other counties. Approximately, the western two-thirds of the county came from Rowan County, and the eastern one-third came from Orange County. Rowan was created in 1753 from Anson County, and Orange was created in 1752 from parts of Johnston, Bladen, and Granville counties.

"Old Guilford County" was three times larger than present-day Guilford County, since Randolph County was created from the southern third of Guilford in 1779, and Rockingham County was created from the northern third of Old Guilford in 1785.  Link
