Talk:Elizabeth Pitts Lamboll and Thomas Lamboll
For further research (RA 5/21/2015)
- 5/21/2015: Emailed Preservation Society of Charleston seeking support for claim on Historic Markers web page for 19 King Street: "It was on White Point Gardens that the Lambolls cultivated a large rose garden accessible only by boat." http://www.preservationsociety.org/program_historicmarkers-Detail.asp?hmID=7.
- Response received 6/10/15 stating "The marker was written in 1997, and unfortunately I am not sure from what source that particular piece of information comes."
Perhaps documents at College of Charleston/South Carolina Historical Society would provide more information:
- George Hunter, surveyor, Plat of Charles Town (1740) lots 117-118, 145-153 and 295-2916. Properties and surrounding lands belonging to Thomas Lamboll (et al.)
- Naylor, William Rigby, surveyor. 1772 Plat of Charleston city lots on South Battery and Legare streets. Names on the document include Mr. Lamboll and Mr. Mackenzie
- Plat of Fort Johnson, 1830. Sketch from Col. Senf's plan of Fort Johnson (James Island), 1787, showing lands ceded to the United States. The name Thomas Lamboll (estate) appears. Also a Plat of James Island land, 1805.
- Bacot, T. W., surveyor. Plat (1881 copy) of several Charleston City lots, some along South Bay Street. Includes lands owned by Edward Blake, William Gibbs, William Parker, Rawlins Lowndes, Charles Elliott, Toomer, Thomas Lamboll, Robert Mckenzie and George Kincaid.
It would be good to nail down circumstances that brought Elizabeth to South Carolina. Perhaps more information in her letter to George Whitefield, published in extremely rare Orphan-letters. Being a collection of letters wrote by the orphans in the Hospital of Georgia To the Reverend Mr. George Whitefield. Giving an account of the workings of God's Spirit upon their souls, and the great and wonderful success of Mr. Whitefield's abours and ministry among them. (Glasgow, 1741). Copies at New York Historical Society and at Duke
- Land reclamation or other interventions have drastically altered the topography that surrounds the Lambolls' Charleston property. The best indications of its size and shape are provided by The Ichnography of Charles-Town at High Water (1739) and the plat reproduced in Pinckney (1969). http://jcb.lunaimaging.com/luna/servlet/detail/JCBMAPS~1~1~2833~101286:The-ichnography-of-Charles-Town-at-
