The French Santee were in Berkley County in a town called Jamestown. Jamestown is known for its rich heritage as the first French Huguenot settlement on the Santee River beginning in 1685. Jamestown has enjoyed a colorful history. The town was established in 1705 several miles down river from its present location. The area now known as Jamestown was not incorporated until 1957. The town hall is located on S.C. Hwy. 41 in Jamestown. The French Huguenots were a peaceful, industrious people, serving God faithfully in a wilderness. They gained wealth by marketing indigo, rice and naval stores (turpentine and pitch). The region around the Jamestown settlement became what was known as French Santee. None of the original 13 colonies received a stronger infusion of Huguenot blood, faith and valor than South Carolina. (www.berkley.sc.us/~bcounty/Berkleymunicipalities.htm)
