Colonial land grants in South Carolina are indexed as part of the combined
index at the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, along with
plats and memorials for the grants. These are the only comprehensive
lists, and so far as I know are not available on-line. However, the mail
service offered by the Archives Reference Room (info posted earlier today)
makes them accessible to folks who can't travel to Columbia.
