We have records available for persons who were born in, died in, or obtained a marriage license in Brunswick County. Birth records were officially kept starting in 1913; however, we also have a limited number of delayed births from 1876 through 1913. Death records were first registered in October, 1913 and our first marriage license was issued on November 23, 1867.
