September 15, 1721

The Statutes at Large of South Carolina - Volume III, Page 134

WHEREAS, the lines of St, George's Parish, as they were settled by an Act of the General Assembly of this Province, ratified the eleventh day of December, in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and seventeen, will prove very prejudicial and inconvenient to the inhabitants of the said Parish; therefore, for the preventing such inconveniences and prejudices, we humbly pray your Majesty that it may be enacted,

I. And be it enacted by his Excellency Francis Nicholson, Esq, Governour, &c, by and with the advice and consent of his Majesties honourable Council and the Assembly of this Province, and by the authority of the same, That the several bounds and dividing lines hereafter mentioned and expressed, shall remain and forever hereafter continue and be the bounds and dividing lines of the said Parish of St, George's, any law or laws of this Province heretofore past, to the contrary in any wise notwithstanding.

II, Be it therefore enacted by the authority aforesaid, That St. George's Parish aforesaid, shall be bounded on the south side of Ashley River, with a south-west line from the plantation of Mr. Richard Bedon inclusive, to the bounds of Colleton County, on the north side of the said river by a northeast line from the plantation of William Baker, deceased, inclusive, to the bounds of St. James's, Goose Creek, and on all other parts by the same bounds the aforesaid Parish of St. Andrew's was formerly bounded.

Charlestown, September the 15th, 1721.

JA. MOORE, Speaker.
Assented to by FR. NICHOLSON, Governour.
