Administrative Information

Acquisition Information

The Pringle Family Papers were given to The Bancroft Library by E. C. Pringle, Jr. on April 20, 1972. Photocopies of Edward J. Pringle (1826-1899) correspondence in the Alston-Pringle Manuscript Collection were donated by the South Carolina Historical Society, through the courtesy of Mr. Peter Manigault in September 1988.

Scope and Content

The Pringle Family Papers, 1803-1961, consist primarily of correspondence of the extended families of Edward J. Pringle (1826-1899) and his wife, Cornelia C. Johnson Pringle, of San Francisco, California. Edward was the son of William Bull Pringle (1800-1881) and Mary Motte Alston Pringle (1826-1899) of Charleston, South Carolina. Some personal papers of the Pringle and Johnson families are also included. The collection has been divided, chiefly by individual family members, into fifteen series.
The Papers of Edward J. Pringle, an attorney, include his letters from Harvard, 1844-1845, and journals kept during his trip to Europe during 1847-1848. He settled in San Francisco in 1853 and specialized in litigating Spanish land grant claims.
Much of the family correspondence in the collection is between his wife, Cornelia Johnson Pringle and their daughter, Cornelia Covington Pringle and her six siblings: Edward J., William Bull, Sidney J., E. Covington, Hess, Mary Motte, and Charles Alston. Notable among her other correspondents is Louis Janin, and the Johnson family papers include the letters her father, Sidney Law Johnson, wrote from San Francisco in the 1860s.
The bulk of the correspondence is either to or from Cornelia Covington Pringle, and aside from numerous family members, her notable and long-term correspondents include Ynes Mexia and the Cooper Ornithological Club.
The papers of Charles Alston Pringle contain correspondence and manuscripts of his writings, many relating to Mexico, along with various business papers concerning his mining interests. Papers of the Pringle family also include legal documents relating to Central Pacific Railroad litigation, 1882-1890, as well as genealogical and various property records, wills, scrapbooks, and clippings.
Finally, there is a small amount of miscellaneous material, chiefly ephemera and clippings, which bear no clear relationship to the Pringle family.
