Drayton Family Marker

The plantation lands around the Ashley River and the original Charles Towne were given to planters by the King Of England. The Drayton family, of Barbados, were the first.

This marker is placed near the river where (so tales go) Royal Judge Drayton in the 1670’s liked to sit and pray. The monument is on the back garden trail at Magnolia Plantation.

The rice plantations along here started with the Drayton family. Magnolia lands are still owned by descendants. The other large plantations were all family of the Draytons.

I have passed this stone monument a hundred times, finally waited for some light and shot this. I’ll get more next time I pass by.
