Welcome to the Plowden Web Site! We're happy to have you "amongst us". The "Plowdens" go back to around the 1100's in England. We have several resources on this website that will address our complete lineage in more detail. As you will see here, there are several "Plowden branches" in our family tree. However, this site is primarily directed to "The Descendents of Edward Plowden I", who was the first Plowden to settle in South Carolina.
Since genealogical "fact finding" crosses many families and touches many people, we believe that it should be a "many member" process. Please make yourself at home here and discover some of the resources and printed materials that members of our family have generated over the years. If, in your exploration elsewhere, you should run across information that you believe may be of interest to our Plowden line directly or to one of our surnames, please drop us an email! Thanks again for visiting the PLOWDENS!
