The Province of Carolina was an English and later a British colony of North America. The Charter of Carolina was originally founded in what is modern day North Carolina. The Charter of Carolina expanded south, and at its greatest extent, included the modern states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas, Mississippi, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, most of Oklahoma, and parts of modern Florida and Louisiana, Nevada, California; with eastern border of the Atlantic Ocean (the Great Western Ocean) and western border of Pacific Ocean (the South China Seas). No Title was ever granted by Yahweh or his “chosen people” to any Europeans Monarch or Corporation to “his property” in this hemisphere.
Sir Robert Heath, attorney-general of King Charles I of England, was granted the Cape Fear region of America, incorporated as the Province of Carolina, in 1629.
The charter was unrealized and ruled invalid, and a new charter was issued to a group of eight English noblemen, the Lords Proprietors, on March 24, 1663.
Charles II granted the land to the eight Lords Proprietors in return for their financial and political assistance in restoring him to the throne in 1660.
Charles II intended for the newly created province to serve as an English bulwark to contest lands claimed by Spanish Florida and prevent their northward expansion. Led informally by Anthony Ashley-Cooper, 1st Earl of Shaftesbury, the Province of Carolina was controlled from 1663 to 1729 by these lords and their heirs.
From 1708 to 1710, due to disquiet over attempts to establish the Anglican church in the province, the people were unable to agree on a slate of elected officials; consequently, there was no recognized and legal government for more than two years, a period which culminated in Cary’s Rebellion when the Lords Proprietors finally commissioned a new governor. This circumstance, coupled with the Tuscarora War and the Yamasee War, and the inability of the Lords Proprietors to act decisively, led to separate governments for North and South Carolina.
Some take this period as the establishment of separate colonies, but that did not officially occur until 1729, when seven of the Lords Proprietors sold their interests in Carolina to the Crown, and both North Carolina and South Carolina became royal colonies.
The eighth share was Sir George Carteret’s, which had passed to his great-grandson John Carteret, 2nd Earl Granville. He retained ownership of a sixty-mile-wide strip of land in North Carolina adjoining the Virginia boundary, which became known as the “Granville District”. In 1743 the initial boundary line was surveyed by a commission. The line was extended westward in 1746, and again in 1753. The sixty-mile-wide tract of land was to extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific Ocean.
There was some resentment of Granville’s District, which amounted to nearly half of the land in North Carolina, because the royal government of North Carolina was responsible for the area, but did not receive any revenue from it.
Ownership of Granville District was passed down to John Carteret’s son, Robert Carteret, 3rd Earl Granville, which had considered selling the land back to The Crown to dis-encumber himself, he never acted.
The situation continued to get worse as records were no longer being kept accurately. When the younger (Robert) Granville died in February 1776, American revolutionary fervor was already strong and the proprietorship of the Granville district had become identified with British interests.
With death of Robert Carteret, 3rd Earl Granville, in February 1776, before the Revolutionary War, the Carteret/Granville heirs abandon the land and the landholders of the Granville District, including (Paternal & Maternal) G-G-G-G-G-Grandfather’s fee simple estate (Heir Property) Proprietary land holders (Lords of the Manor) now elevated to heirs, assign and successor of the Charter of Carolina; of land/territory which was my Indigenous G-G-G Grandmother’s (Rachel) Paleo Hebrew ancestors have claimed steward over for Yahweh, several millenniums before.

This District “private proprietary property” was to become the scene of many disputes, from 1729 until the American Revolutionary War, at which time it was illegally seized 1777 by the North Carolina General Assembly “self appointed” revolutionary government; though it claims to recognized land granted by the crown and proprietors prior to July 4, 1776, it also confiscated all Indigenous lands, neutral homesteaders that took no sides in war, and lands of persons who supported the British during the war.
In fact, the 1783 Treaty of Paris (Treaty that created 13 sovereign States that would become the united States of America) provided that united States of America Continental Congress would recommend that the state’s governments restore all confiscated property and that there would be no further confiscations, the Granville land office, which had closed in 1763, never reopened. There was, however, concern in North Carolina that the heirs might attempt to reclaim the District.
1794 Jay Treaty (Article 9) “It is agreed, that British Subjects who now hold Lands in the Territories of the United States, and American Citizens who now hold Lands in the Dominions of His Majesty, shall continue to hold them according to the nature and Tenure of their respective Estates and Titles therein, and may grant Sell or Devise the same to whom they please, in like manner as if they were Natives; and that neither they nor their Heirs or assigns shall, so far as may respect the said Lands, be and the legal remedies incident thereto, be regarded as Aliens”.
In 1801, the Granville heirs brought suit for ejectment and trespass in the Federal Circuit Court for the District of North Carolina. Josiah Collins, Nathaniel Allen, and Samuel Dickinson in 1788 had received a grant from the state for 3,952 acres of land on the Pungo River in Tyrrell County in what had been the Granville District. The claim of the heirs was based on the grants of King Charles II to the Lords Proprietors, the 1729 act of surrender that reserved one-eighth of Carolina to John, Lord Carteret, and the indenture to him of September 17, 1744. The defendants resisted the claim on the grounds that the Granville title had been extinguished by the Revolution, that the district had been vested in the people of North Carolina by section 25 of the Declaration of Rights, that the land had been confiscated by action of the General Assembly in 1777, that the heirs were aliens and thus incapable of taking and holding land in the state, and, finally, that action was barred by the statute of limitations.
John Marshall, chief justice of the United States Supreme Court, who presided over the North Carolina circuit, warned circuit court judge Henry Potter in advance that he would have to decide the Granville case alone. Marshall declined to participate because of his involvement in the Fairfax land case in Virginia and because he believed that the Granville land was not included in the confiscation acts.
State treasurer John Haywood felt that Marshall’s mind had been made up on that point for a long time. Potter did not write an opinion on the case, but he gave lengthy instructions to the jury. Potter relied heavily on an opinion of superior court judge Samuel Johnston handed down in the Court of Conference in 1801, in which Johnston ruled that the exceptions in section 25 of the Declaration of Rights applied only to those individuals who were part of the collective body of the people and that the people, collectively, assumed the right to all lands within the boundaries of the state. Potter instructed the jury that Granville had possessed royal immunities under the indenture from George II, and that he therefore had many prerogatives and extraordinary privileges that barred him from the exceptions. The judge declined to rule on whether the Granville ungranted lands had been confiscated.
The jury found the defendants not guilty of trespass on January 3, 1806, and the Granville heirs appealed to the United States Supreme Court in February 1807. William Gaston, attorney and member of the General Assembly, had represented the Granville heirs before the circuit court, but he withdrew from the case upon its appeal; and Philip B. Key was appointed in his stead. In January 1808 John London, the Wilmington merchant and banker who represented the Granville heirs in the United States, recommended, and Key agreed, that the appeal should not be pressed because of the strong antagonism between the United States and England that led to the War of 1812. Governor David Stone, however, expressed concern about the claim of the Granville heirs and recommended that the General Assembly provide a fund to reimburse those persons who had obtained land grants from the state in what had been the Granville District. The fund was not appropriated. Philip B. Key died July 28, 1815, and John London died March 1, 1816. With both principals dead, the Supreme Court appeal was dismissed in February 1817 and the Granville District appeared to have passed from the scene. In 1842 the British consul in Charleston, South Carolina, told Gaston he had recently received an inquiry through the secretary of the navy in London relating to the claim of Lord Carteret to his lands in North Carolina. Gaston’s response is unknown.
As to the question of whether the Granville District had or had not been confiscated, not until 1913 did the North Carolina Supreme Court rule that the Granville lands not granted in 1763 had been confiscated by the acts of 1777 and 1779, even though they were not specifically mentioned in the legislation.
This ruling by the alleged North Carolina Supreme Court was based on fraud. The “de jure” legal Republic of North Carolina State cease to exist May 20, 1861, as one of these united “sovereign” States of America when it joined the Confederate States of America.
After the Civil War, the People of North Carolina was appointed an provisional Governor and government for North Carolina, the People (the source of Sovereignty) did not vote or put this government in office.
After the Civil War, all the former States of the Union and Confederate was bankrupted, and in a “coup et tat” on February 23, 1871, an private municipal corporate federal government (United States, Inc.) for the District of Columbia was formed with its own Constitution; design to covertly mirror the “de jure” national government, in every way.
The 41st treasonist Congress abandon their de jure State seats, and join the municipal government (United States, Inc.) of District of Columbia, to further give the illusion that the private municipal corporate federal government, whose authority and jurisdiction was restricted to the District of Columbia; was in fact, “pretending” to be the “de jure” 1787 constitutional national government of the People of the American Republic. (will revisit this fact later)
BOTTOM LINE: The Charter of Carolina/Granville District is the territory of “Yahweh” of the Holy Torah/Bible and his “chosen” Representative, the biblical Hebrew Israelites laid claim to it with a Ten (10) Commandment marker established millenniums ago, and never gave any foreign Monarch or Corporation, interest in “his” property; the Granville District is still in dispute in 2015, by heirs and descendants of the Paleo Indigenous Hebrew stewards of Yahweh’s (God’s) land (Leviticus 25:23:); and Lord Proprietor’s heir, assign, successors of the 1663 sovereign royal land grant Charter of Carolina, which grants “Absolute Authority” of legislative, judicial and police powers to heir, assign, successor of the Proprietary Charter.
This Holy Covenant and Proprietary Land Grant of my People, and family’s pre-America homestead; is my inheritance upon geographical territory that was already my ancestors Sovereign Indigenous Lands, for several millenniums.
The Holy Covenant is binding upon every generation of my People and the 1663 Charter of Carolina, written as a International Land Grant Treaty Agreement, it is stated that this agreement is binding on King Charles II’s heirs, assigns and successors; including future successors Monarchs of his Dominions (Queen Elizabeth II, his 1st cousin 9th time removed), THE CROWN CORPORATION and TRADING COMPANIES; including the future to be created 1776 united States of America and municipal federal corporation of the 1781 UNITED STATES, INC., operating illegally outside its Constitutional and legislative jurisdiction within the boundary restriction of the District of Columbia; as it pretends it the national government for these sovereign State Republics of the united States of America.
Paragraphs 14/15, of 1663 CHARTER OF CAROLINA, grants me, Rechayahu Ben Harvey, as heir, assign and successor; FULL, and ABSOLUTE POWER and AUTHORITY to establish Legislative, Judicial and Police Power; in addition to, appointment of officers; civil and military.
The “de jure” these United States or United States of America did not exist in 1663; and did not come into legal existence until 1776; therefore, the “de jure” these United States of America, cannot alter or extinguish this previous established sovereign treaty contract agreement (Proprietary 1663 Charter of Carolina); and the private municipal federal corporation for the District of Columbia, the “de facto” 1871 UNITED STATES, INC., an government impostor, is not a party to this international agreement neither.
Republic of United States of America Federal Government of District of Columbia
De jure De facto
Yahweh’s (God) Holy Covenant can not be revoked or extinguish by any government on this earth, and will be respected; as his “chosen” People obey and comply with his laws and statues.
Ambassador Rechayahu Ben Harvey under “Holy Covenant”,“truth in commerce” & “judgement in commerce” is legal, highest ranking Sovereign, heir, assign, successor of the Proprietary Charter and Indigenous territory in North America.
