The Hawthorn family arrived at the port of Charleston on Christmas Day 1767 via the Brigantine Chichester, which had set sail from Belfast, Ireland in September of that year.
If you are interested in more information on this Hawthorn family, you might want to contact Jerry Hawthorne, who last year published a book entitled "Back Tracking the Hawthornes". Jerry is descended from James M. Hawthorn and Parazade McIntosh. Jump to the Hawthorne (with an 'e')Family Forum for Jerry's messages regarding information on the book - these were posted about this time last year.
