According to Jackie Margoles, manager of the Burgwin-Wright House, all that’s left of the house known as Castle Haynes are pottery shards. She believes they may have been taken down to a creek and used for target practice by Union soldiers after the overran the house.

The Burgwin/Wright connection goes as follows: John Burgwin, owner of the house on Market Street, married Margaret Haynes, daughter of Roger Haynes who owned the large house locals called a castle which stood in the community now called Castle Hayne.

For more information, see local historian Susan Taylor Block’s blog post.

    Margaret Haynes is still living and serves on Wilmington’s City Council.

    I’m quite sure you are confused Kelly, as the Margaret Haynes referred to in this article married John Burgwin in 1753. I highly doubt she is the similarly named councilwoman. Try brushing up on some well-documented Wilmington history before you make such a comment.
