South Carolina
A register of grants of land in South Carolina between the years 1675 and 1768 has been preserved under the reference CO 5/398. The entries for 1739 have been extracted and are given below. The register records the name of grantee, place where the land granted lay, number of acres, date of grant and rent. The rent for all grants made in 1739 was 3s sterling per 100 acres. The spelling of some names, especially foreign ones, appears to be corrupt.
