Alexander Trench and his wife Hester arrived in Carolina from Dublin, Ireland circa 1720, settling in Beaufort, for Trench was agent for John Bayley, son and heir of Landgrave John Bayley. By June 1729 when he sold Captain John Gascoigne a 500 acre plantation, he described it as “in St. Helena Parish, Granville County, part of an island commonly known by the name of Trench’s Island”. Captain Gascoigne’s own 1750 map, based on his 1729 survey of the area, labeled Hilton Head “Trench’s Island” and French maps dutifully translated it “Isle de Tranchees”. Trench’s wife Hester died before 1729 when he made his will leaving his estate to their son Frederick, with his own brother, Counselor Frederick Trench of Dublin, as Administrator.

WHEN IS THE NEXT TRENCH'S CELLAR?

POSTPONED

I want to err on the side of caution and have made the decision to postpone this event. Trench's Cellar's raison d'etre is to deliver an exceptional and surprising experience that can only happen when people feel safe and comfortable enough to break bread together and I won't select a new date until that time. Hopefully, that will be sooner than later.  


For those who have purchased tickets, you will receive a refund. Thank you and I do hope you will be at the next event. 


Thanks for your understanding,


Alexander Trench
