DARLINGTON COUNTY

Established in 1785 from Cheraw District

A courthouse fire on 19 March 1806, destroyed most of Darlington's records with the exception of early probate files; this fire also destroyed the early records of Cheraw judicial district. The negligence of district ordinary Shepherd Williams (1827-1835) resulted in the subsequent destruction of a portion of loose probate papers.
