Near this point was the SW corner of Wadboo Barony, a 12,000 acre tract about 4 miles square, granted in 1683 to James Colleton, son of an original Lord Proprietor, as part of the land due him as a landgrave of Carolina. Colleton´s heirs were Loyalists during the Revolution; the Barony was confiscated, divided, and sold to Patriot citizens.
