South Carolina Ships' Lists
by Victoria Proctor


The Brigantine Chichester out of Belfast, Ulster, Northern Ireland
arrived Charlestown sometime between December 22, 1767 and January 5, 1768.*

William Reed, Master

(*Note: The arrival information was provided at the Council meeting of January 5, 1768. Although the date of arrival was not given, the previous meeting had been December 22, 1767, and the Council Clerk reported vessel boardings at each meeting. The arrival of the Chichester is presumed therefore to have been between these two dates.--vp)

The 147 passengers were mainly Ulster Protestants enticed to emigrate to Carolina by the Bounty Act.

For your convenience, I have alphabetized the passengers by surname. I have, however, retained the order in which they were listed per surname in order to provide you with possible clues as to family members travelling together. Warrants for land, provided for in the Bounty Act, are included where known.--vp
