Excerpt from The German and German-Swiss Element in South Carolina: 1732-1752
Of the four leading elements in the colonial population of South Carolina, t.e., the English, the scotch-irish, the Huguenot and the German, including the german-swiss, the last named has hitherto been rather overlooked. There are certain facts that probably account for this apparent neglect. In the first place, the Germans and Switzers spoke a foreign tongue that was little known in the Province. Again, they were, for the most part, poor folk without the training or temperament to enable them to aspire to social or political leadership. Furthermore, they were frontiersmen, settling chieﬂy in accordance with the desire of the Provincial government, on the outskirts of the Province, as at Purrysburg, Orangeburg, saxe-gotha, and New Windsor. In this paper an attempt will be made to appraise the contribution made to the population from 1732 to 1752 by these immigants from the German states and the German can tons of Switzerland, to indicate the causes of their coming, and to determine what sort of people they were.
