Prince Frederick Parish, South CarolinaEdit This Page
From FamilySearch Wiki
Prince Frederick's once took up a large area of South Carolina, but by 1790 this parish (as well as Prince George's to the east) took up all or parts of six present-day South Carolina counties: Williamsburg, Florence, Marion, Dillon, Horry and Georgetown.
In addition to religious roles, South Carolina's "Anglican parishes were used as election districts and had responsibility for road development, care of the poor, and education."
