This county was designated a court and land conveyance district in 1682, and an election district in 1683. It was named for two brothers, Lord John and Sir William Berkeley, both Lords Proprietors of Carolina. Over the years, functions of this early county have changed. Modern Berkeley was created in 1882. Several
boundary changes occurred 1893 - 192.
