Pre-1770 Printed Documents. Lot of Four SOLD SOLD SOLD
Pre-1770 Printed Documents. There are four documents; front and back scans.I may have more to list later on; however, as I have not gone through all of my boxes, no guarantee.
Document of January 1763 Charles Skinner was South Carolina Chief Justice beginning in 1762. His signature fairly rare. Shubrick quite important. Thomas Shubrick Plantation prominent in Revolutionary War, Beaufort area between Charleston and Savannah. This is the same COL Thomas Shubrick. He served in the Revolution with the 2nd South Carolina Regiment, and was aide de camp to General Nathanael Greene. Also, Granville County no longer exists. This is only document I have seen with Granville County. In 1769, the name Granville County was abolished when Districts in South Carolina were renamed.
Document of February 1763 Charles Skinner was South Carolina Chief Justice beginning in 1762. His signature fairly rare. William Burrows Prominent attorney. Charleston. Related to the WARD family (his wife) Mary Ward Burrows. Immediate descendant in early US Marines as head. Also; a Mason, and he published in 1762 Text – Book of Masonic Jurisprudence Named in suite is REV Archibald Stobo; believe related to James Stobo, Esq.
Document of July 1763 Charles Skinner was South Carolina Chief Justice beginning in 1762. His signature fairly rare. And I have never seen his signature with that of Colonel Charles Pinckney; prominent attorney as well as later South Carolina militia. Doyley is I believe is Colonel Daniel D’Oyley. He was an attorney. In suit is Thomas Stone and James Stobo, Esq. REV Archibald Stobo; believe related to James Stobo, Esq. Thomas Stone not much known; but later purchased land in Fairfield Co., SC in 1773.
Document of July 1769 Has many signatures. Judge Robert Pringle was born in 1702; came from Scotland c. 1730. He was a wealthy merchant and Assistant Justice of the Province of South Carolina. He died in 1776. His son was John Julius Pringle 1753- 1843. who studied law at The Temple in London and was Attorney General of South Carolina for 16 years. President Washington appointed him District Attorney for South Carolina; however, he declined President Thomas Jefferson's appointment of him as Attorney General of the United States. As stated Judge Robert Pringle was quite prosperous; owned the huge home at 70 Tradd Street in the lower part of Charleston near the Battery. John Ward, died in 1783 was an influential attorney in Charleston, South Carolina. Joshua Ward, the son of John Ward was born in 1769. (John Joshua Ward was the owner of the largest number of slaves (over 1,000) in the United States; owning four plantations near Georgetown, SC, north of Charleston; later Brookgreen Gardens.) Roger Pinckney is quite unique, never even saw his name much less a signature. This may be a relative of the famous Pinckney family. Pinckney names may be distinguished as follows: Thomas Pinckney, the founder of Pinckney name in South Carolina; Charles Pinckney, lawyer and the Chief Justice; Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, the Ambassador and candidate for the Presidency; Thomas Pinckney, General in the War of 1812; Charles Pinckney, the democrat; and Henry Laurens Pinckney, editor and author. John Colcock related to Charles Jones Colcock of Colcock Hall at Porter Military Academy (until merged to form Porter Gaud) and now part of Medical University of SC. Also related to Richard W Colcock who was the second Superintendent of The Citadel. Doctor John Haly and James Christie: I would need more research time.
