City Directories and History: R&R has divided the 1938 SCDOT map of Clarendon County into (26) sectional maps. Many of the individually listed schools and churches shown on this section are pictured. However, in many cases, the individual site also has its own post on R&R, which often provides added information and image. Be wise and use the search function to locate all of the entries for this and other homeplace listings.

Rambay carries the following story: At a low place on the plantation, a herd of goats roamed as they could find mud and water to satisfy them. A ram, that must have been the boss of the crowd, seemed to have staked his claim in this bay, being usually seen there; and the bay came to be known as Ram’s Bay—shortened later to Rambay. This plantation was the most extensive of the three. It had no dwelling of the kind usually found on such places, but had row after row of what would have been termed “Negro cabins” but actually were slave quarters. A large part of this plantation is now owned by Halstead Tindal Anderson, grandson of Mr. Ezra Tindal. I believe he rents out most of it, but is using part of the land on which to erect in cooperation with his cousin, Henry Everett, a modem motel.
