John Saxbury, 1700’s, South Carolina

September 20th, 2009 by Barbara

Below is more proof that Saxbury’s were in South Carolina in the 1700’s. Still do not know how to connect them to the New York family but maybe someday.

Book overview
These four volumes contain the abstracts of the records of the Register of the Province of South Carolina from 1719-1772. These abstracts of conveyances and deeds, and occasionally miscellaneous records, cover all parts of the state, from the Proprietary period until just prior to the Revolution. The original copies remain in Charleston in the Office of the Register of Mesne Conveyance, where all deeds for the entire state were recorded until the state capital was moved to Columbia well after the Revolution. After 1785, the individual counties in South Carolina began recording their own deeds, but prior to this date, one must look for his or her ancestor’s deed in these volumes being abstracted. These abstracts were prepared for the Works Progress Administration by Miss. Langley in the 1930’s. They have been thoroughly indexed for grantors, grantees, adjacent property owners and all other individuals whose names appeared in such conveyances. Each volume contains a full-name index of individuals; a place name index of all places such as rivers, plantations, towns, countries; as well as an occupation index.
