Chester County, South Carolina Naturalizations
1783-1850

Original Source: Genealogical Publishing Co., 1985, Compiled by B. H. Holcomb.

The original naturalization records contain much more information and the researcher is advised to consult the original documents to obtain the complete data available.  This index of the 1985 publication was compiled by D. Whitesell for South Carolina Genealogy Trails.

The Chester District records were recorded in separate volumes (Vol A - 1802-1832 & Vol B 1832-1868). The volumes are located in the Clerk of Court in Chester and on LDS microfilm.


...South Carolina passed a statute concerning naturalizations on March 26, 1784, and another on February 27, 1788. Congress passed a law on March 26, 1790, stating that "any alien being a free white person who shall have resided in the United States for two years may be admitted a citizen, on application to any common law court of record in any one of the states wherein he shall have resided for the term of one year at least." Also, a law was passed April 14, 1802, stating that "any alien may be admitted to become a citizen . . . [if] he declares his intention in any court three years at least before his admission. . . resides in the United States at least five years, and at least one year in the state or territory.
