p.ix
This volume contains abstracts of wills recorded at Charleston between the founding of the Colony in 1670 to1740. Manuscript copies of these wills were preserved in the Journal of the Grand Council, Office of the Secretary of the Province, and the Probate Court of Charleston County. An Act of the 1849 General Assembly provided for copies of early original wills, and the date 1851 at the end of an abstract indicated that the will was taken from a copy of that date. This collection of abstracts was primarily undertaken for genealogical use and study.

In the original Colony there were three counties: Berkeley, Colleton, Craven, and later Granville. The Parishes were begun in 1706.
