Pendleton County was created in 1789 from formerly Cherokee Indian lands. At first it included all of present-day Anderson County, Oconee County, and Pickens County.[1]

The overarching Washington District created in 1791 included this subordinate Pendleton County. The name of this overarching district was changed to Pendleton District in 1798. [2] Compare the 1791 South Carolina map and the 1799 South Carolina Map. In 1800 South Carolina abolished overarching administrative court districts like Pendleton District, and switched to the county-only concept.

The remaining Pendleton County survived until 1826 when it was split into Anderson County and Pickens County. At that time the Pendleton County name was extinguished.

For documents of people who lived in Pendleton County from 1789 to 1826, look for papers filed in Pickensville, the District and County Seat to 1800, and Pendleton the Count Seat 1800 to 1826.
