Background
The Barnwell District was created in 1798 (effective in 1800) from the southwestern portion of the Orangeburg District, along the Savannah River. It was named after John Barnwell, a local figure in the Revolutionary War.

In 1868, under the South Carolina Constitution revised during Reconstruction, South Carolina districts became counties, with officials elected by male citizens at least 21-years old, rather than by state officials as done previously. In 1871 the northwestern portion of the county was taken to form part of the new Aiken County. In 1874 the border with Aiken County was adjusted slightly. In 1897 the eastern third of the county was taken to form the new Bamberg County. In 1919 most of the southern half of the county was taken to form most of the new Allendale County, thus bringing Barnwell county down to its present size.
