The Blount family has been pronounced the oldest in North Carolina and this means, of course, in Tennessee also. No family, according to Governor Henry T. Clark, genealogist and historian, came to the Province earlier than James Blount, who settled in Chowan, North Carolina in 1664. [Notable Southern Families]
