CLARENDON COUNTY

Originally established in 1785 from Camden District, it became part of Sumter District in 1800 and reverted back to the name of Clarendon County with the same 1785 boundaries in 1855

Although records were removed before General Edward H. Potter's Union cavalry destroyed Manning in April 1865, Clarendon's loose probate papers were destroyed later, at an undetermined date; they begin in 1875
