Re: “Burden Creek Dairy

Enjoyed the tour on the farm a year ago. My son went on a field trip. The class had the chance to sample milk and cheese. All the kids got to pet and hold the animals. Learned some things about goats that I didn't know.

Re: “Kutik's Honey Farm

The creamed honey was a gift. This honey is what I remember from the early 1960's. It is wonderful. Next step for me is to find out where to purchase and give to all our family members. Time to pay it forward--thank you!

Re: “Famous Mike's Peanuts

Mike is rude and disrespectful to his business neighbors. He shows no respect for the people around him in the Warehouse he works out of. I highly recommend that no one supports such a rude businessman here in Summerville.

Re: “Artisan Meat Share

Excellent spot. The Bun Mi sandwich was perfect, with a nice steamed bun exterior, and bahn mi style pork inside. Their charcuterie is well made and full of salty goodness. I am glad they are downtown, and not near my house. I would gain way too much weight eating there.

Re: “Artisan Meat Share

The only problem I have with this place is that it's close to work, and after I eat there I don't want anything but a nap. Greasy goodness...

Re: “Sea Island Savory Herbs

Really cool spot with amazing quality and variety of plants. Want an obscure heirloom varietal and all the knowhow you could need to make sure it thrives in our Charleston climate? Even if you want a standard item, this is the place to go. The atmosphere is relaxed and fun (not crowded, noisy, and hot like many of the garden stores in peak season), the plants are healthy and well marked, and the staff is friendly and helpful.

Re: “Bugby Plantation

Bugby Hole was a popular anchorage on the Thames River for larger ships needing protection from storms and tides. The oxbow of the river at Bugby Marsh (Greenwich Peninsula) created this deep hole just outside of London where ships were required to fly their colors prior to entering the city. Numerous references to “Bugby Hole” or “Bugby Marsh” or “Bugby Reach” exist in shipping maps and Parliamentary records prior to the 1800s when some maps started to misspell the name as “Bugsby.” This is a common mispronunciation of our family name. “Bugby Marsh” was slow to be developed because it was a marsh and needed to be drained. The Dutch evidently helped to do that. Early artwork and maps shows it as a vacant stretch of ground, where the pirates were hung in gibbets away from businesses and homes but in plain view before starting an overseas journey. During the time of the East and West India Companies, Captain John Bugby was active in overseas shipping. There were other Captain Bugbys including Timothy and William around 1625. Popular use by the Bugbys being anchored in this location is what likely landed the name. They were evidently proud of having their family name being placed on “Bugby Hole” for river maps of the Thames in the early 1600s. The Bugby family of London had the money to invest in plantations at Montserrat, St. Croix, and South Carolina during that time. “Bugby Hole” was used as the name for these plantations in the West Indies, (Caribbean). Books by Daniel Defoe, the author of Moll Flanders, and his official British coastal guide, referenced “Bugby's Hole.” By 1665 naval maps and even a ship diary referenced “Bugby's Hole” during the London plague. “Bugby Reach” appeared on some maps on this stretch of the river. “Bugby Marsh” was named for the stretch of the river but no Bugby was ever a landowner there. Later maps continued to use the misspelling of Bugsby on the marsh and on the river after 1850. “Bugsby’s Way” in Greenwich at the O2 arena is a great tribute to the early history of the area. Unfortunately, it should have been named Bugby’s Way. Sincerely, Dale Bugby
