Originally a single proprietary colony, the Carolinas fell into a period of dissension, partly from neglect from the heirs of the original Lords Proprietors. Beginning around 1710, the settlements in North and South Carolina could not agree upon a common government and so practically they became separate colonies.

In 1729, the two Carolinas were formally established as separate royal colonies after seven of the eight Lords Proprietors sold their shares back to the crown.
