Archibald McBryde

Archibald McBryde ( born September 28, 1766 Wigtownshire, Scotland, † February 15, 1816 in Carbonton, North Carolina ) was an American politician. Between 1809 and 1813 he represented the state of North Carolina in the U.S. House of Representatives.


Even in his childhood came Archibald McBryde with his parents to the United States, where the family settled in Carbonton. In his new home, he received a private school education. After a subsequent study of law and qualifying as a lawyer, he began to work in this profession. In addition, he worked in agriculture. From 1792 to 1816 he was employed with the exception of his time as a congressman in the administration of justice in Moore County.

Politically, McBryde joined the Federalist Party. In the congressional elections of 1808 he was in the seventh constituency of North Carolina in the U.S. House of Representatives in Washington DC chosen, where he became the successor of John Culpepper on March 4, 1809. After a re-election he was able to complete in Congress until March 3, 1813 two legislative sessions. These were shaped by the events of the British -American War since 1812. In the years 1813 and 1814 McBryde sat in the Senate of North Carolina; thereafter he practiced as a lawyer again. He died on 15 February 1816 in Carbonton.
