Craven County (1682-1769)
Craven County was
formed in 1682 as one of the four original Proprietary counties (the
others being Berkeley, Colleton and
Carteret/Granville). It roughly encompassed
the area east and north of Charleston harbor that is the location today
of Charleston and Berkeley counties. In 1769 the four proprietary
counties were abolished in favor of seven new Judicial Districts, and
the old Craven County became part of the Charleston District.
