  • Not to be confused with Pendleton County, the western part of Pendleton District.

History

Pendleton District was created in 1798 by renaming Washington District.[1] See the 1799 South Carolina Map.

Two subordinate counties were included within the overarching Pendleton District[2]:

In 1800 South Carolina abolished overarching administrative court districts like Pendleton District, and switched to the county concept. The remaining Pendleton County at first included all of present-day Anderson County, Oconee County, and Pickens County.[2]

For documents of people who lived in this area at this time, look for papers filed in Pickensville, the District and County Seat, or in the County Seat at Greenville.
