Abstract:

The Skipwith family papers include business papers, correspondence, accounts, and farm notes of Sir Peyton Skipwith, 1740-1805, his wife, Lady Jean Miller Skipwith, 1748-1826, their son Humberston Skipwith, 1791-1863, and Humberston's wives and children, especially Fulwar Skipwith, 1836-1900, a tobacco planter during the Reconstruction era. The papers are primarily business in nature and reflect the management of Prestwould Plantation in Mecklenburg County, Virginia. The development of Lady Jean Skipworth's outstanding library and the education and travel of various family members are also well documented. The correspondence documents a remarkable record of plantation life in Southside, Virginia in the 18th and 19th centuries. Family life and social matters over the course of three generations are documented in letters in this collection.
