  • Histories
    The Tobin Family
    The Tobin Family
    first came to South Carolina from Kilkenny County Ireland before 1790. A dynamic man, of strong will and firm mind, he came alone to seek his fortune, leaving behind his wife Judith and two sons, John and Daniel Sr.

  • Notes 
    • After the war, the first known settler in what is now Blackville proper was an Irishman, Cornelius Tobin, whose family had re-patronized to Ireland from France. He entered through the port of Charleston in the late 1700's, acquired ten black slaves, and built a plantation which ran from the Edisto River to Barnwell, and from what is now Denmark to Williston. He built a home near where the Blackville Country Club swimming pool is today. The plantation was named Fairmont, and was described as splendid than any thing in Charleston.
