This book is a great source for trying to locate an early ancestor's place of settlement within South Carolina. The 4,000 immigrants listed in this book were Protestant refugees from Europe who came to South Carolina in search of new lands and religious freedom. Arranged chronologically, and taken verbatim from the original Council Journals, 1763-1773, the information given in the certificates and petitions for lands under the Bounty Act includes the date and the location and acres of land granted. In some cases the immigrants are listed with their age, country of origin, and name of the vessel on which they arrived.
