Letters from America 1699-1757

I have just put some research of mine up as a blog so it is more accessible: Hyrne Family Letters 1699-1757

The story that unfolded in these letters is one of elopement, fraud, betrayal, love, loss and courage and they reveal the attempt and ultimate success of a Lincolnshire family in establishing plantations in South Carolina in the first half of the 18th century.


For costumiers, the list of goods Elizabeth Hyrne sent from South Carolina back to her brother, Burrell Hyrne, in England, which she says ‘will sell well here’ might be of interest.
