New Title! Charles Towne on the Cape Fear: The Rise and Fall of the First Barbadian Settlement in Carolina - by Jack E. Fryar, Jr. (released 8/1/19)
While South Carolina may have the famous Charles Town, the first settlement to bear that name in Carolina was on the Cape Fear River between 1664-1667. Now, for the first time, author and historian Jack E. Fryar, Jr. has written the first book that tells the story of those settlers. Despite their best efforts, world events and a competing colony to the south would doom the John Vassall settlement at Cape Fear, "reduced more by faction than necessity."
