There have been a number of books printed about various members of the Pinckney family so I thought it about time I had a page to show them to you. Only a few are available in print now. Some are very old and are now out of print, others have never been officially printed or only printed for private use.
If you know of any other books that I could get hold of please let me know. If you have a book not listed here which is not available I would be very grateful if I could borrow it to read and I will add it's details to this page.
I do not own all the books listed here (unfortunately) some have very kindly been lent to me and have been returned to their original owners. In particular the book about Eliza Pinckney is now well over a hundred years old and it was a privilege to be able to read it. I'm very grateful to it's owner for lending it to me.

a Family History

I enjoin not only upon my sons, but upon any of my family into
whose hands these records may come, that they take copies of them,
that they may be preserved and handed down, as in this country
authenticated family history is very rare, and very soon lost in the
scattering and disintegrating of families.

Your Uncles

Dear Children,
If it had not been for two world wars, you would have
had four uncles who we know would have been a constant
delight and pleasure to you. They were all remarkable,
each in his own way; they lived happy lives and took
brave parts in the wars in which they fought.

Time is a great healer of our sorrows, but it also blots
out our memories, and so before the lives of your uncles
are forgotten, we are writing them down so that you may
have a record of them to keep. We know that you will be
inspired by what you read, and that not only will you be
thrilled by their adventures, but their memories will be
proud possessions of yours.

Alas, they are not with us to come and visit you or to
give you that half-crown which they would have done;
nor have they families which would have been your
cousins. Nevertheless you will have as a guide lives which
were well and truly lived.
Roger and Anne Gresham Cooke
