Because the varied nature of the papers do not lend themselves to arrangement by series in the ordinary way, it has been deemed simplest to categorize them into files and to arrange the files alphabetically. For the sake of convenience the files of estates have been removed from their place in the alphabetical arrangement of general files and boxed separately.

This collection is organized into files under the categories ofGeneral Files;Estates;Wills;Account Books (Oversize). Within these, the files are arranged alphabetically in separate folders.

John Vann (1768-1850), Hertford County planter, moved from Gates to Hertford County at the beginning of the nineteenth century, and remained active in public affairs until his death in 1850, serving as chairman of the court for the last twenty years of his life. He represented Hertford County in the House of Commons in 1823, 1824, and 1825, and in the State Senate in 1833 and again in 1835. By his marriage to Nancy Cross, Vann had five sons, among them John A., who was as politically active as his father.

John Arline Vann (1822-1902) commenced his public life as a constable in 1840. He served as clerk of the Superior Court in 1851, 1852, and 1853, and was elected sheriff of the county in 1856, serving in that office until 1860. Sometime afterward, he was again clerk of the Superior Court, and though he had to vacate the office in October, 1865, when all offices in the state were declared vacant, he was reappointed and continued to serve as clerk and master in equity until 1868 when the superior courts were reformed and the equity side abolished.. Vann represented the county in the House of Commons in 1864 and 1865, and though he stood as a Democratic party candidate for election to the 1875 Constitutional Convention he was defeated. During the years from 1871 to 1877 Vann was treasurer of the county, serving simultaneously as one of the county commissioners and a justice of the peace during the years from 1874 to 1876. By his marriage to Martha Ann Newsome in 1849, John Arline Vann had eight children, none of whom figure in these papers.

The papers are essentially the product of the lives of John Vann and John Arline Vann, though the collection includes some papers from the lives of John Vann's father-in-law, Jesse R. Cross, and his father, Jesse Vann. The Cross and Vann families maintained a business relationship with the Little family who had acquired the plantation and fishery at Old Town in Maney's Neck on lands that had in the first half of the eighteenth century been occupied as a life reservation by the Meherrin Indians. John Vann, who acquired rights to the fishery at Mount Gallant, acted as the business manager at Old Town plantation for William Person Little (1765-1829), while Jesse R. Cross and John Gatling operated Little's fishery at Old Town. In the following generation, John Arline Vann acted as trustee for Thomas Person Little (1799-1856), son and successor of William Person Little to the property at Old Town plantation. The copy of the 1861 will of James Magett in the collection includes references to joint land business with Thomas P. Little.

While some few of the papers in the collection relate to the two Littles and their affairs, the majority of the collection is made up of papers and records concerning the affairs and estates of others for whom the two Vanns acted in a fiduciary capacity as executor, administrator, trustee, or guardian. Of the remainder of the collection, a significant number of files relate to the activities of the two Vanns (principally John Arline Vann) as public officials of Hertford County. Election records in the collection date from John A. Vann's tenure as sheriff (1856-1860) and are returns for state house and senate members and governor (1856); county court clerk, superior court clerk, congressman, and free suffrage (1857); state house and senate members, governor, and sheriff (1858); members of the Secession Convention (186l). The Winton post office accounts, 1831-1844, of Cordwell Vann, third son of John Vann, also reflect the family's involvement in the public life of the county. An 1816-1819 file on the construction of Cool Spring Meeting House, which includes the builder's contract and the report of the building commissioners, another file on Chowan Baptist Female College, and a third file of miscellaneous material reflect the participation of the Vann family in the life of the Baptist Church in the Hertford-Gates area.

The single file of correspondence in the collection contains 35 letters ranging in date from 1788 to 1900, most of them having to do with business affairs. Of the business letters, five were written by William Person Little and two by Thomas Person Little. William Person Little's letters all deal with Old Town plantation and fishery matters, but his letter of March 31, 1815, contains a long passage on the successful conclusion of the War of 1812 and prospects for America arising from the ensuing peace. Political matters are touched on in an extract from a letter written from Washington, D.C., by Congressman Jesse Speight on March 22, 1832, in which it is suggested that Congressman William P. Shepard and former Governor John Branch are anti-Jacksonians. A letter of May 4, 1824, written to John Vann by the local schoolmaster, P. Gurley, asks for relief from his destitute condition. Another letter, dated Sept. 5, 1836, invites the unknown addressee to take charge of a "first rate male and female Academy" to be established in Irwinton, Alabama. The five family letters in the collection are from kinsmen in Talladega, Alabama; Fayette County, Tennessee; Macon, Georgia; Cleburn, Arkansas; and Cross County, Arkansas, and range in date from 1837 to 1880. Otherwise, the letters are of interest only in relation to the local business affairs of the Vanns. The private business papers of John and John A. Vann include accounts, bills and receipts, deeds, promissory notes, sawmill accounts, fishery accounts, and various miscellanea. It is unclear whether the files concerning fisheries all pertain to the Mount Gallant fishery purchased by John Vann in 1807 or to some other fishery. In this connection, it ought to be noted that the file relating to the estate of James Crawford contains material relating to his Half Moon fishery.

Half the collection of papers is made up of files relating to the estates and wills of decedents, some of whom might have been residents of Gates and Northampton counties, rather than Hertford County. In nearly all cases members of the Vann and Cross families acted as executors, administrators, or guardians. In the course of their duties in these capacities, papers dating from a period previous to the death of their decedent came into the hands of the executor/administrator. These papers often included promissory notes, slave papers, bonds, accounts, and, sometimes, account books in addition to the usual inventories, sales, settlements, and so forth. In such cases, all the papers have been foldered with the documents immediately related to the estate, whether they precede the death of the decedent or not. Because of physical requirements of storage and handling, however, account books relating to estates have been boxed together with Vann family account books in an oversized manuscript box and are shelved apart from the body of the collection. For example, the account book of the firm of Williams and Felton, 1815-1821, is not kept with the loose papers relating to the estate of General Boon Felton (1821) but is boxed with the other account books. Similarly, deeds that are related to the estates of decedents, but pre-date the death of the decedent, are filed among the deeds, and not with the estate records. It is probably worth noticing specially that the file on the estate of Christian Cotten (1816) contains an 1815 distillery bond executed by Cotten as a distiller of spirituous liquors in compliance with the federal act of 1814.

Printed matter in the collection originally included a printed genealogy entitled  "The Vann Family" (1938); copies of the state treasurer's report, the governor's message, and the report of the officers of the N.C. Institution for the Deaf and Dumb and the Blind, made to the 1864-1865 session of the General Assembly and published as part of the public documents of that session; a small broadside in support of a proposed constitutional amendment relating to suffrage to take effect after Dec. 1, 1908, entitled  "Amendment Discussed from an Educational Standpoint--Able and Interesting Article by a School-Teacher"; business card of Brooks, Fulton and Rogers, wholesale dealers of Baltimore; two flyers issued by the Aetna Life Insurance Co., n.d., 1885, and accommodations advertising card for the Pan-American Exposition at Buffalo, N.Y.; a fragmentary copy of  The Hornet's Nest (Murfreesboro), January 20, 1814, which has been transferred to N.P.54; September, 1862 issue of  The North Carolina Journal ofEducation; a pamphlet entitled,  The Influence of Material Agents in Developing Man,by S. S. Satchwell (1858); and, a copy of  "Constitution and By-Laws of White Supremacy Club." The last three of these printed items have been missing from the collection since sometime prior to 1977.

Because the varied nature of the papers do not lend themselves to arrangement by series in the ordinary way, it has been deemed simplest to categorize them into files and to arrange the files alphabetically. For the sake of convenience the files of estates have been removed from their place in the alphabetical arrangement of general files and boxed separately.
