The short answer: Yes, they are related.

Both of these Charles' signed the U.S. Constitution in 1787.

Charles Pinckney (1757) was a senator in South Carolina, born to Colonel Charles Pinckney (1730), who in turn was born to William Pinckney (1703).  William Pinckney (1703) had a brother Charles (1699) who had a son General Charles Cotesworth Pinckney (1746).  I believe that makes General Charles (1746) a 1st cousin 1x removed from Senator Charles (1757).   Thomas Pinckney (1750) is the brother to General Pinckney (1746).

Charles Pinckney (1699-1758) m. Eliza Lucas (1722-1793).  The four children born to them: Charles Cotesworth Pinckney (1746-1825), George Lucas Pinckney (1747-1747), Harriott Pinckney (1748-1830) and Thomas Pinckney (1750-1828) -- from The Heritage of Pinckneys of Pinckney Colony by Mary Pinckney Powell, p. 31.  I don't see a Charles born in 1757 but perhaps he has a middle name.  There were so many Charles(es) in the Pinckney Family.  Born in 1757, I would think he is not a son of Charles & Eliza because their son Charles was still living.  It would be unusual to name a new son by the same name as a living one.
