History

In 1768 South Carolina replaced all of her previous counties with seven court districts including the newly organized area of the Cheraw District. In 1785 South Carolina disestablished Anglican churches (St. David's and St. Mark's parishes) as government record keeping organizations, and created three subordinate counties within the overarching Cheraw District:[1]

and in 1792:

In 1800 South Carolina abolished all her overarching districts including Cheraw District. However, the remaining counties were often called districts as late as 1868.

For documents of people who lived in this area from 1768 to 1800, look in:[2]

Fire.png

A courthouse fire on 19 March 1806 destroyed most of Darlington County's records with the exception of early probate files; this fire also destroyed the early records of the Cheraw Judicial District. The negligence of a local district ordinary also resulted in the subsequent destruction of a portion of loose probate papers.[3]
