The boundary history of South Carolina counties is complex, and it's made the more so because the judicial districts are often confused with the civil districts (=counties).  Ignoring completely the early division into parishes and simplifying:  in 1769, seven judicial districts were created; in 1785, 34 counties were created within the seven judicial districts; in 1800, the judicial districts were abolished, and the counties were re-designated "districts"; in 1868, the districts were redesignated "counties."

For any ancestors early to South Carolina, you need to understand the county history to know where they actually were in terms of today's geographical divisions.  I'm using the following source, along with land, tax, and other records:

AniMap Plus: County Boundary Historical Atlas.  Gold Bug, Alamo, CA (on CD).

And I still need to go over the records below in light of the above.
