My guess is that all the Perry's in northeast NC were descendants of Phillip Perry who settled in the Isle of Wight Co., VA. He left his will there 9 Oct 1669. Some of Phillip's children, James, Jacob & Joseph moved to NC.
An earlier Perry, Thomas (age 34), emigrated to VA in the "Bonaventure" Jan 1634 with Dorothy age 36 & Ben age 4.
I recommend you look through the book "The History of Perquimans Co." for more on the Perry family. Another source is "Memories and Records of Eastern North Carolina."
