Carteret County was originally inhabited by various Native American tribes, including the Coree, Neusiok, and Pamlico. In 1713, the English established a settlement in the area, which became the town of Beaufort. In 1722, the county was officially established and named after John Carteret, the Earl of Granville, who was also a Lord Proprietor of the Carolina Colony. The town was named after the Duke of Beaufort, who was one of the Lords Proprietors of the Carolina Colony. During the American Revolution, Beaufort served as a base for privateers who harassed British shipping along the coast.

From notorious pirates like Blackbeard to lesser-known figures like Anne Bonny and Calico Jack Rackham, the Outer Banks was a haven for buccaneers and privateers seeking fortune and adventure on the high seas. In October 1720, Calico Jack Rackham and Anne Bonny were captured by the British navy near Ocracoke Island, off the coast of North Carolina. Rackham and his crew had been partying and drinking, leaving them unprepared for the sudden attack. Bonny and Mary Read, another female member of the crew, fought bravely alongside the men but were eventually overpowered. Bonny's gender was discovered, but she was spared from execution because she was pregnant. Rackham and several members of his crew were hanged in Jamaica for piracy, while Bonny's fate remains unknown. the capture of Rackham and Bonny is significant as it marked the end of the Golden Age of Piracy in the Caribbean.
