Do you have written records from the Precambrian era?

No. The Precambrian era pre-dates the origin of complex life on earth.Humans (modern Homo sapiens) appeared around 200,000 years ago which is approximately 500 million years after the Precambrian ended. Also humans didn't develop "writing" until several thousand years ago (approx 6600 years BC).As such there can be no written record of the Precambrian.For more information about the Precambrian, please see the related link.
