Newberry, County, South Carolina Deed Abstracts, Volume I: Deed Books A-B, 1785–1794 [1751–1794]. Brent H. Holcomb.
Newberry County was formed in 1785 and became Newberry District in 1800. Prior to the border surveys of 1764 and 1772, the area was included in Anson, Mecklenburg, and Tryon Counties, North Carolina. For this reason, a few grants and deeds from North Carolina are referenced in the Newberry County deeds. Early settlers of Newberry County, as indicated in these deeds, included Quakers, German Protestant immigrants, Germans from Pennsylvania, and Irish Protestant immigrants. There were also settlers from North Carolina. Migration from Newberry County to other areas of South Carolina is also indicated in the deeds.
The deeds in this volume were recorded for 1785 to 1794; however, the earliest deed included in this work dates from July 1751. The instruments in this volume have been abstracted from LDS microfilm and South Carolina Archives microfilm. A full-name index and a place index add to the value of this work.
