South Carolina Culpepper Archives
Pendleton District/County (1789-1826)

History

In the northwestern corner of South Carolina in the Piedmont region, the Pendleton region was occupied by the Cherokee Indians until 1777, when it was ceded by treaty to the state. Most of the early settlers of this area were Scotch-Irish farmers who moved south from Pennsylvania and Virginia in the eighteenth century. Pendleton County was formed in 1789 from Ninety-Six District. In 1791, along with Greenville County, Pendleton became part of the Washington District. However, Washington District was abolished in 1798 and both Greenville and Pendleton became districts. In 1826, Pendleton District was abolished and divided into Anderson and Pickens Districts. Prior to its abolition, Pendleton District was bordered by the South Carolina districts of Greenville and Abbeville, the Georgia counties of Elbert, Hart, Franklin, Stephens, Habersham and Rabun and the North Carolina counties of Jackson and Transylvania.
