"In South Carolina an important land record is the MEMORIAL from 1731-1775, those who had obtainted land were tasked with preparing a memorial attesting to the location, quantity, names of adjacent landowners, and the boundaries of the land. Memorials included a chain of title, often from the original patentee to the current owner."
