Edgefield County, South Carolina Deed Books 44 and 45, Recorded 1829-1832, Carol Wells


1 Edgefield County, South Carolina Deed Books 44 and 45, Recorded 1829-1832
Carol Wells
2008, 5x8, paper, index, 202 pp, Heritage Books, Inc
The deed book abstracts in this volume were gleaned from documents that were recorded between 1829 and 1832. In addition to the names, dates and land descriptions one would expect to find in such records, these deed abstracts also reveal names of children and neighbors, ties to other areas, clues to family wealth (or lack of), names of wives, mothers, slaves, previous spouses, kinship, etc. These pages contain deeds of trust for protection of wives and small children from a husband's financial troubles, marriage contracts, deeds of gift naming children and grandchildren, contracts, powers of attorney from Edgefield people who had moved to other states, sheriff sales, depositions, mortgages, and even one registration of a stock mark. Many chains of title reach back to the 1700s. The names of witnesses, adjoining landowners, heirs, churches, plantations, rivers, and creeks are included. More than two-hundred slaves are named, many with their age and description. The deeds are presented in original page number order with a full name index. Plantations, rivers and creeks are also indexed.

2 Edgefield County, South Carolina Probate Records Boxes Four Through Six, Packages 107 - 218
Carol Wells
2006, 5x8, paper, index, 140 pp, Heritage Books
Probate records are sworn documents that go beyond the will to show how the estate was settled. These records offer insight even when persons left no will. They may reveal names, relationships, date of death, items being sold, names of buyers, final distribution, money due to the estate, and more. Probate records are especially valuable for researchers in the difficult field of black genealogy. Slave names may be traced from estate to estate. The early nineteenth-century Edgefield District, South Carolina, probate records are arranged by the initial of last name of the decedent. Thus, although this volume contains abstracts of surnames beginning with "B" and "C," the thirty-three page index links the decedents to surnames from Abney to Zinn. Names of sons and daughters-in-law, legatees, securities, guardians, witnesses, officials, debtors, purchasers, adjoining property owners, and other persons connect the decedents to other families.

4 Edgefield County, South Carolina: Deed Books 16, 17, 18
Carol Wells
(1997), 2007, 5x8, paper, index, 160 pp, Heritage Books
Although these abstracted deeds were recorded from 1798 to 1800, the years in which they were written stretch from the 1760s. Many chains of title reach back to the 1750s and may tell of land sold, disputed and inherited; they name heirs, kinfolk of other surnames, remarriages, residences in different states and counties, and may state exact or approximate dates of arrivals, departures, deaths and marriages. Edgefield then included parts of present Aiken, Greenwood, McCormick and Saluda Counties. Much commerce across the Savannah River with businessmen and planters in several Georgia counties is documented. Locations are identified by names of nearby watercourses and by names of adjoining landowners. Names of witnesses and surveyors give further details. Besides the land conveyances, deed books include mortgages, releases of dower, rights, powers of attorney, depositions, bills of sale for slaves and other possessions, and conditional sales that provide care of the aged until death. Edgefield clerks who wrote county names such as "Linkhorn" (Lincoln) and "Ogle Thorp" (Oglethorp), Georgia; and the state of "Tenecy" (Tennessee) could also do interesting things to family names. All names written in the original books are given here. The everyname index is a convenient aid in checking for these variant name spellings.

Edgefield County, South Carolina: Deed Books 19, 20, 21, & 22, Carol Wells


5 Edgefield County, South Carolina: Deed Books 19, 20, 21, & 22
Carol Wells
(1997), 2007, 5x8, paper, index, 190 pp, Heritage Books
By the end of the 18th century, Edgefield County veterans of the American Revolution were becoming the older generation. Changes surrounded them. The cotton gin gave a profitable crop to the South and strengthened the once-fading institution of slavery. Prices of slaves and land rose. Large holdings were divided into farms. There was much traffic across the Savannah River with Augusta, Georgia. Deed books concern land conveyances but also contain powers of attorney, depositions, bills of sale and other documents. Occasionally, deeds explain family relationships. Chains of titles may show why land was passed from one owner to another. Some deeds mention other places of residence. This book abstracts four deed books. Almost 2,000 handwritten pages are here reduced to 157 pages that retain all dates and names of persons, watercourses and places. Recorded between 1800 and 1803, many deeds were written earlier, some in the 1760s; titles may be carried back to the 1750s.

Carol Wells
(1998), 2007, 5x8, paper, index, 224 pp, Heritage Books
In this book are mentioned the names of more than 3,700 free persons. They are sellers, buyers, orphans, widows, adjoining neighbors, previous owners, and donors of gifts to children and friends. Most deeds concern land conveyances. There are also prenuptial agreements, mortgages, powers of attorney, certification of documents completed in other states, and depositions made by witnesses to controversial events. More than 200 slaves are named, the majority being sold or given as gifts, some being granted freedom. Although quite a few deeds were signed ten or twenty years earlier, chains of title lead back to the 1750s and 1760s. These deeds were not recorded until between 1806 and 1809.

Carol Wells

Deed books contain not only land conveyances, but also powers of attorney, depositions, judicial sales, and sales of household and farm equipment, livestock and slaves. These transactions often name wives, children, parents, assorted kinfolk, previous owners, witnesses, justices and others. These deeds were recorded between December 1809 and July 1814, a time of great dispute in South Carolina over the issue of a high or low tariff. Property locations are identified by names of nearby watercourses and by names of adjoining landowners. Every name and all watercourses are indexed. Names and ages of slaves may be stated; approximate age of minors and occupations may also be provided.

Here is the latest in this useful series of deed book abstracts.

Trust deeds name friends who are to care for dependent persons named within. Connections with other locations are shown in powers of attorney, while other deeds name parties to lawsuits or partition of inherited land. Depositions, often about an ear bitten off in a fight, name combatants and witnesses. Recorded between 1817 and 1819, some of these deeds date back as early as the 1760s, and some chains of title to the 1740s. Presented in original page number order with a fullname index.
