The 4,000 immigrants listed in this volume were Protestant refugees from Europe who came to South Carolina on the encouragement of an act passed by the General Assembly of the Colony on July 25, 1761, called the Bounty Act. 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 granted. In some cases the immigrants are listed with their age, country of origin, and name of the vessel on which they arrived. An excellent index provides references to more than 4,000 names in the text. This book is indispensable in attempting to locate an ancestor's place of settlement in South Carolina.

I located the person who I believe to be my ancestor in this book. It helped me narrow down some possibilities. I appreciate that someone took the time to put this information together in a book format. It really helps with genealogy research. Definitely worth the money.

I was able to search contents before making a purchase so I knew the information that I was looking for would be in the book. This is a reprint of a 1939 work. It is very nicely done. Proud to add this book to my library.
