South Carolina Culpepper Archives
Berkeley District/County

History

In the Carolina Low Country, Berkeley County was formed in 1682 as one of four proprietary counties, the others being Colleton, Craven and Carteret. However, in the early years of South Carolina (1682-1769), counties were used only for geographical divisions, and did not have governmental functions. In 1706, parishes were set up and coexisted with the counties. Today’s Berkeley County included all or parts of the parishes of St. Stephens, St. James Santee, St. Johns Berkeley, St. Thomas/St. Denis and St. James Goose Creek. In 1769, South Carolina was divided into seven judicial districts which served as governmental units. Charleston District was one of them. In 1785, Charleston was divided into six counties, one of them being Berkeley, but none of the counties became functional and they were abolished in 1798. In 1882, Berkeley County was formed from Charleston County. Its county seat, the town of Moncks Corner, is on US-52, about 30 miles north of Charleston and 80 miles southeast of Columbia. Berkeley County is bordered by the counties of Clarendon, Williamsburg, Georgetown, Charleston, Dorchester and Orangeburg.
