Union County, South Carolina, Deed Abstracts, Volume I: Deed Books A-F 1785-1800 (1752-1800) - Brent H. Holcomb. Union County was formed in 1785 as a county of Ninety Six District. It was included in Pinckney District 1791-1799. In 1800 with the end of the county court system, it became Union District. In the colonial period the area of Union County was considered part of Craven County or Berkeley County in South Carolina. Prior to the border surveys of 1764 and 1771, the area was included in the North Carolina counties of Anson, Mecklenburg, and Tryon. For this reason many grants and deeds from north Carolina are referenced in the Union County deeds. Land grants from north Carolina are frequently referred to as “north patents.” The South Carolina deeds prior to 1785 were recorded in Charleston and in some cases a few years later. The Charleston deeds have been abstracted and published through the year 1788, those from 1773-1788 by the writer. The deeds of the aforementioned North Carolina counties have also been abstracted and published. The deeds in this volume appear to have been recorded 1785-1800, though recording dates are absent from the first deeds in Book A. As is common, there are deeds recorded from a much earlier time period. The earliest deed included in this work dates from 30 May 1752 and is found in Deed Book A, page 227.
