This chapter shows how much South Carolina differed from North Carolina as a colony in 1711. For one thing, it was prosperous. Blessed with a deepwater port, Charles Town was already a beautiful, bustling place, the largest town in the English colonies south of Philadelphia. It far outshone North Carolina's towns of Bath and New Bern. The Low Country surrounding Charles Town produced large quantities of rice and indigo, and South Carolina rice planters were absolutely the wealthiest men in England's North American colonies. It certainly attracted its fair share of visitors and migrants. John Lawson went there in 1701 to start his trip across the Carolinas. South Carolina had also been settled differently than North Carolina. Most of the early migrants to North Carolina had been small farmers, traders, workers, even a good number of fugitives coming out of Virginia or Maryland.
