Noisette children, Charleston, SC 1821 & 1859

PAR #: 11382125
Location: Charleston District/Parish, SC Year: 1821

Abstract: Phillipe Stanislaus Noisette, "Botanist of Charleston," states that "under peculiar circumstances" he became "the Father of Six children, begotten upon his faithful Slave named Celestine." For many years it had been his intention to free his family, but the "passage of the late Law upon this subject" prompted him to seek their freedom now by the passage of a legislative act.

PAR #: 11385912
Location: Charleston District/Parish, SC Year: 1859

Abstract: The "mulatto" children of Philip Stanislas Noisette, a white botanist who died in 1835, ask to remain in South Carolina as free persons of color. By his will Noisette had directed that the children, born of his enslave wife, Celeste, be removed to some country where they would be free. The children, however, are "attached to the laws of the County, and very unwilling to remove."
