Hyrne Family Letters

One of the fantastic things about combining genealogy and the internet is that resources that may not previously have been easily accessed by large numbers of people can be made accessible. The Hyrne Family Letters is a good example of this. Spanning 1699-1757 this collection of letters from one of South Carolina’s plantation is a unique and wonderful glimpse into colonial South Carolina. From the site: “The story of a family of early plantation settlers of South Carolina – Elizabeth and Edward Hyrne and their sons Burrell and Henry”

The letters were found in the Lincolnshire Archive Office and as you can imagine probably had been viewed by a limited number of people. They have since been transcribed and give a fantastic window into life at Medway Plantation in Goose Creek, South Carolina.
