Gwynne Family Subseries, 1761, 1770, 1799, 1811, and undated

8 items
Scope and content:

Letters, legal documents, and notes of Rebecca Gwynne (d. 1798?) and Elizabeth (Gwynne) Waller, the sisters of Sarah Wesley (1726-1822), and of Thynne H. Gwynne, her cousin. All of the letters here are either to Sarah or between two other members of the Gwynne family rather than to the Wesleys. Rebecca Gwynne's letters mostly provide updates on various people's lives, although her 1770 letter to Sarah Wesley gives an eye-witness account of the scene at one of JW's sermons. Miss Waller in the letter of 1770 Nov. 6 is the sister of Rebecca Gwynne and Sarah Wesley. The two letters to Sarah Wesley from her cousin Thynne H. Gwynne concern family deaths. Arranged in chronological order.
