Register of St. Philip’s Parish, South Carolina

In 1719 the General Assembly of South Carolina directed that a parish register be kept in each parish in the Province. The register of St. Philip’s Parish starts with the year 1720 but a few records of earlier dates were entered subsequently. St. Philip’s Parish dates from 1602, but it is not now known whether any sort of register was kept prior to 1720.

This copy of the register of St. Philip’s Parish was made by me from the original. The letters and figures in brackets indented into the printing show the pagination of the original. The index to the original is arranged in double column, but here the large letters rep­resent the beginning of each page and the small letters the beginning of the second column of each page. A. A. S. Jr.

The notes at the end of some of the entries regarding spelling or lack of spelling was from the original records. The months were left as is, I will leave that to you to decide. In about 1747 they started listing all the children of one parent at the same time. If you are searching for someone born in earlier years you should also search 1747-1753.
