Life on St. Helena

Life on St. HelenaLive on St. Helena changed dramatically on November 7, 1861, call by African Americans living in the area at that time the day on the gun -shoot at Bay Point. On that day, during the battle of Port Royal, which took place near the southwest end of St. Helena, the Union Navy captured the Confederate ports that protected the entrance to the port of Beaufort. Confusion reigned in Beaufort and all St. Helena, as plantation owners hastily made moves to evacuate. Capt. John Fripp, the brother of good Billy, who was the not only one of the richest landowners, but also a union sympathizer, gathered his slave for some parting advice. According to the noted historian Willie Lee Rose, he told them to forget about growing cotton and to grow crops that they could eat, or otherwise they may starve. Over 100 years later, the resort development on Fripp would name the ocean condominiums, Capt. John Fripp villas, a name that undoubtedly associated with the legend of the 18th century privateer two year and not the 19th century planner. Life on St. Helena

Although the slaves on St. Helena Island were not officially freed until January 1, 1863, when Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation, the Battle of Port Royal, in effect, liberated them. Within a few years many of them became owners of small plots of land. During the Union occupation of Beaufort in 1863, the US tax commission, sold abandoned lands and houses in much of the Beaufort area for failure of the owners to pay property taxes. The federal government bought some of the land and divided into small farms for the former slaves. Life on St. Helena

Fishing Stories on Fripp Island

Fishing Stories on Fripp IslandFishing stories compose an almost equal number of passages and Chaplin’s Journal. In the summer, Chaplin fish for sheepshead and in the fall for bass while carefully recorded in his journal the number of his catch. Oysters and clams were easy to rake in the mud flats of the marsh, but Chaplin did not like getting in the mud and assigned that task to his slaves. Even though Chaplin was well acquainted with the waters around St. Helena, he like everyone else before or after him occasionally went aground. He wrote in his journal on September 30, 1845, intending going home early, this morning, but the boat got aground and we could not get her off before the flood tide. Did not get to the plantation until after sunset. Fishing Stories on Fripp Island

Chaplin’s accounts make clear that hunted only barrier islands and fishing in the water surrounded them were some of the most delightful aspects of his life as a St. Helena planner. His brief entry on December 26, 1849, captures the special role that the Hunting Island played for him. Went to Skull Inlet with E. Capers and Frank Gabriel and Dr. Kirk. Caught a good chance of fish. Kill one there, and spent a very pleasant time. St. Helena was Chaplin’s home. It was where he oversaw the planning of a wide variety of crops, raising numerous animals, supervise slaves, maintaining his buildings and boats and cared for his family. Although he had been born of privilege, he squandered much of his wealth in poor business decisions and over indulgence and was often in serious debt and despair. For him, the hunting now is offered a retreat, a place to relax and seek refuge from daily demands. Fishing Stories on Fripp Island

Fripp Island SC

 

McTeer devoted a whole chapter in his book to one particularly haunting experience that he had with a friend on Fripp. The two men were camping near the The Narrows and had spent exhausting day fishing in the surf for large red bass. After eating dinner and resting they had a walk along the deserted beach to see what may have washed ashore. As they walked along the high tide mark, they saw the footprints of a barefooted person. Both men were over 6 feet tall and had large feet, but they estimated the tracks they saw were over 18 inches long. They follow the fresh footprints for over a mile until the footprints circle a turtles nest without disturbing the eggs and then disappeared into the woods. Mac tear and his friend knew the few landing places on Fripp and quickly scouted them for signs of a boat. But they found no boat or tracks. The two men decided to break camp and sleep on their boat. McTeer wrote, we were not scared, just cautious. Some years later, McTeer learned that several other folks had encountered the “Bigfoot”. However, no one seemed to have a clue as to who or what could have made the large imprints in the sand.

Fripp Island ‘s Support for Candice Glover of American Idol

Fripp Island ‘s Support for Candice Glover of American Idol

 

Fripp Island consists of strong communities, morals, and optimism around every corner. Perhaps that is why over 300 residents rallied together to cheer on Candice Glover, a contestant in the top-ten finalists of Fox’s “American Idol”.

Fox crews filmed the rally to use in an episode, featuring Candice Glover’s background. This means that a few hundred of our residents have appeared on Fox recently, and we may see them again soon.

According to islandpacket.com, many co-workers adore and support Candice, joking that she is now an ex-coworker, as they believe she will win Fox’s competition.

“In the Top 10 this week on ‘Idol,’ Glover sang Ben E. King’s ‘I Who Have Nothing,’ to a standing ovation from the judges. On Thursday during the results show, it was announced that Glover was one of the top 3 vote-getters this week, keeping her safe for another round.” Read More | Islandpacket.com

While this rally is in support of a life-long friend and long-time coworker to many, it’s not surprising to see this kind of backing in our community. Fripp Island is a great location to build a life, while living in a tight-knit community of friends and moral support.
