H. F. Plowden Weston (1738-1827)

A native of England, Weston was a planter at Hagley on the Waccamaw River. He was an active ecclesiologist which may explain his early patronage of a Gothic-style parish church on his property. In addition, he was a bibliophile who printed fine editions and collected manuscripts and books before 1500. original by Charles Fraser, 1824. Considered striking and unique for its portrayal of old age. Graphite on trash, Sold.

  1. I am researching two of the people Plowden Weston enslaved. The man's name is listed as Toney in Plowden's will and then Anthony in later census records. Apparently Anthony married a woman who was enslaved by Plowden. Her name was Maria. Anthony may have bought Maria's freedom. Do you have records of Plowden Weston that you would be willing to share?
