The Barbados Connection

"The English successfully settled the colony with the
assistance of the English Barbadians that came as part
of the earlier contingents. These English West Indians
had already known the defeats and successes of such a
task, and brought with them those "lessons learned" on
the island of Barbadoes and instituted them in
colonial South Carolina. It was these settlers who
brought along plantation management and African
ancestored slaves."
