Granville (1785) County was created in 1785 in the overarching Beaufort District, South Carolina from southeast corner of of Beaufort District.[1] See the 1785 South Carolina map.

This new 1785 Granville County's boundaries did not overlap with the previous Granville County created in 1708 and abolished in 1768.

Granville (1785) County was never surveyed or properly laid out. Its boundaries were ambiguous. Its county government never became functional. Most records were kept at the parish level; none were kept at the county level. There was no county seat. There were no political connotations to the county's existence. In this case the term "county" had no meaning other than to describe an approximate geographical area. It was a county in name only.

Granville (1785) County was abolished in 1791.

For documents of people who lived in this area at this time, look in parish records, or for papers in Charleston, South Carolina.
