PREFACE. 



It was the design of this work to preserve in manuscript a history or 
genealogy of the Kirk family in America, which settled in Darby, Delaware 
County, Pennsylvania, in the year 1687, believing that with the passing of this 
generation, and the lapse of over two centuries, much of this desired informa- 
tion Avould pass into oblivion and be lost to posterity if not collected and 
written out by some one. 

My interest in and love for our family name was the incentive to this 
labor, with only the pleasure of knowing the dust of ages has been removed 
from our lineal descent, and the record made legible to such as desire to follow 
it. 

Late in life further research brought to light other facts of our early 
ancestry, and opened the way for me to renew my interest in our family 
history, from which my early busy life had debarred me. 

The amount of time and patience required to produce such a work can 
scarcely be realized by its readers. That only essential facts be retained for 
it, the greatest diligence must be exercised in our researches among the 
liistorieal, genealogical. State and county archives, the registers of churches 
and Friends' Meeting records. The last named have been invaluable to us, as 
it was through this source our connection was established with our first 
vVmerican ancestor. 

In the year 1907, being prevailed upon to make an effort to publish the 
work, circulars and subscription cards were issued at considerable expense, 
only to meet with discouragement, and the hope of its accomplishment was 
almost abandoned. 

In the Seventh Month, 1908, after a year of anxious waiting, a conference 
was held with John J. Kirk and Henry W. Scarborough, of Pliiladelphia, and 
Edward E. Kirk, of Pineville, Pa., which resulted in a generous contribution to 
a guarantee fund by the above named parties, and a committee of the same 
in charge of the work. 

The manuscript was finally turned over to Gilbert Cope, of West Chester, 
Pa., an eminent historian and genealogist, to edit, revise and prepare it for 
publication, which he has ably done, beside adding much valuable information 
r-o the work from his storehouse of knowledge of family history. 

I gratefully acknowledge the kindness of my coworkers and contributors 
of information from the many members of our numerous family who have 
been solicited for data. 

I trust that these pages may awaken a deeper interest of both our 
American and English cousins in the origin of their ancestry, and be the means 
of uplifting some of the weary workers in that line.

EDITORIAL REMARKS. 



Soon after commencing his labors the editor became impressed with the 
magnitude of the work accomplished by his predecessor, and which onlj^ a 
deep and abiding interest in the subject had enabled her to perform. As the 
collection of the records had extended over several years there will be found 
in some branches of the family changes of which no mention is made in the 
book; and again, the neglect of some to answer inquiries will account for 
incompleteness in other lines. 

He also wishes to speak of the very pleasant and cordial relations which 
have existed between himself on the one part, and the compiler and other mem- 
bers of the publication committee on the other.

EXPLANATIONS. 



Dates are given in the order of month, day and year; and partly for 
economy in space and partly because the Society of Friends have used numbers 
instead of names for months, these are given in numerical style. The early 
Kirks in this country, and many of their descendants, have been members of 
this Society. 

A fact not generally knovs^n is that prior to 1752 the civil year began on 
March 25th, and March was styled the first month. The tenth month v^^as 
December, the 11th January and the 12th Febriiary. The first of January had, 
however, been considered the beginning of the historical year from the time of 
the Norman Conquest, 1066, and in recognition of this it was customary to 
give a form of double dating between the 1st of January and 25th of March, as 
for instance February (12th Mo.) 21st, 1724-5. This fact should be borne in 
mind by any one in changing a date prior to 1752 from the numerical to the 
nominal style. 

The number of the generation, as given at top of page, refers to the 
names consecutively numbered. For a further economy of space the children 
of those so numbered, and occasionally the grandchildren, will be frequently 
found to follow the mention of the parent, when this can be done without con- 
fusion. Otherwise the name is carried forward to the next generation. 

The abbreviations, b., m. and d. stand for born, married and died ; and the 
dates which follow refer to the names immediately preceding them. For in- 
stance, Pierson V. Kirk, b. 6, 5, 1849 ; m. 6, 30, 1896, Eva Burson, d.7, 21, 1897. 
The last date refers to Eva Burson and not to Pierson V. Kirk. Other 
abbreviations are dau. for daughter ; bur. for buried; Mo. Mtg. for Monthly 
Meeting. 

Following the name of the eldest child in each family will be found one 
or more names in parenthesis, which indicate the line of ancestry back to the 
first John Kirk in this country.

INTRODUCTORY. 



Those who have never tried to carry their ancestral lines into the dim and 
distant past, have little idea of the difficulties in the case. And yet while one 
will often wish the difficulties were not so great, it must be admitted that they 
add to the zest of the pi^rsuit and make success more dearly prized. 

The "United States is almost entirely populated by descendants of Euro- 
I)eans who have been coming to these shores for nearly three centuries. If 
the ancestor came over two hundred years ago it is frequently difficult to 
identify him, much more to find the spot from whence he came. Supposing 
this to have been a village or parish in England, we now must depend on such 
records as the country affords. With titled families these are good for a few 
centuries but for the great mass of the people there is little except the parish 
church records, often carelessly kept and not going in any case back of 1538. 
Wills assist us to a still earlier period but when we reach the year 1400 they 
will be found in Latin and full of arbitrary contractions, and two centuries 
earlier the writing is as unintelligible to the average person as the hierogly- 
phics of Egypt. 

In any given locality, where a family has been seated for a few hundred 
years, the same given name will be often repeated in successive generations 
and different branches, and this makes it difficult to identify the parents or 
children with certainty. It is very different on this side of the ocean, where 
the progenitors are few and records more voluminous, and this makes a good 
starting point for the family history. If it should happen that one can trace 
a few generations back of the emigration it is cause for deep gratification. It 
may be remarked, however, that much attention is now given to copying and 
publishing the old records in England, so that coming generations will have 
better facilities for tracing ancestry on that side. 

The publication of genealogies, in which all the branches of a large family 
are traced down to the latest generations, is an American idea which has ob- 
tained its greatest development in New England, and almost wholly within 
the past half century. The fourth work of the kind, and the largest up to that 
time, was the Sharpless Genealogy, containing 132 pages of small size, pub- 
lished in Philadelphia in 1816. But one or two others appeared in Philadel- 
phia prior to 1850, and of those published elsewhere the aggregate bulk would 
scarcely exceed that of single genealogies of recent date. Now these publica- 
tions number thousands, while numerous genealogical societies and magazines 
foster a spirit of research among the generations long since turned to dust. 

Future generations and the average reader of the present day will have 
but a vague idea of the difficulties encountered in the prosecution of such a 
work, and, without going into details, it may be remarked that only in a com- 
paratively intelligent and moral state of society are large genealogies 
possible. 



EARLY SETTLEMENTS. 



A STUDY of the migrations of the human race is worthy of 
our attention, even when we are not directly concerned, and 
when the movements of our progenitors are under considera- 
tion we should take a lively interest in all the details. The 
repeopling of the New by colonists from the Old World has been 
of the most momentous importance to us, and whether in its immediate or re- 
mote results deserves more than a passing thought. Perhaps, in the ordering 
of creation, the world is destined to witness successive waves of civilization 
and race migration, following the course of the sun, and crowding out the 
older, more stagnant and less energetic forms. It might be supposed that 
those individuals who invade new fields possessed more than the average of 
energy, yet, on the other hand, the struggle for existence in the older centres 
might be expected to develop those ciualities essential to the perpetuation of 
the race. 

In these days of rapid strides it seems almost strange that for more than 
a hundred years after the discovery of America there were no successful at- 
tempts at colonization except in the tropical or sub-tropical regions. The first 
English colony was established at Jamestown, Virginia, in 1607, and the 
second at Plymouth, Massachusetts, 1620. The Dutch settled at New Amster- 
dam, now New York, in 1626, and the Swedes on the Delaware in 1638 ; but 
the latter colony did not flourish and their occupation extended little beyond 
tide water. They had for rivals the Dutch, who claimed the territory on the 
South River, as they styled the Delaware, and finally, in 1655, overthrew the 
Swedish rule here. Little attempt was made at colonization, however, and 
New Amsterdam having been captured by the English, in 1664, its dependency 
on the South River naturally fell to the victors. A temporary possession was 
again obtained by the Dutch, in 1673-4, but this had little influence on the col- 
onial life in what is now Pennsylvania. 

Up to this period but few Englishmen had sought permanent homes on the 
Delaware, and these had doubtless been connected with the military occupa- 
tion of the country and found wives among the Swedes or Dutch. Such was 
the case with James Sandilands, of Upland, now Chester, who married the 



4 THE KIRK FAMILY. 

daughter of Jurian Keen, a Swede. The commerce of the river was insignifi- 
cant and vessels seldom arrived, so that a highway of immigration could 
scarcely be said to exist. 

King Charles II had granted to his brother, James, Duke of York, the 
territory now embraced in the States of New Jersey and Delaware, even be- 
fore it had been wrested from the Dutch, and the Duke had conveyed what is 
now New Jersey to Lord Berkeley and Sir George Carteret. The Society of 
Friends, or Quakers, founded in England by the teachings of George Fox, about 
1654, had suffered much persecution, and were looking toward the New World 
as an asylum. In 1673, John Fenwick, one of their number, as trustee of 
Edward Byllinge, purchased the interest of Lord Berkeley, which, by a divi- 
sion agreed upon with Sir George Carteret, formed the province of West 
New Jersey. There was an understanding by which Fenwick was to have 
one-tenth of the province, and in 1675 he led a colony of Friends who formed 
a settlement at Salem. Disputes arose between Fenwick and Byllinge, which, 
by the kind intervention of William Penn were at length adjusted, and 
Byllinge conveyed his nine-tenths of the province to William Penn, Gawen 
liawrie and Nicholas Lucas, for the benefit of his creditors. These divided the 
ownership into one hundred shares or "proprieties", for which they found 
purchasers among Friends in Yorkshire and others in London. Certain ' ' Con- 
ditions and Concessions" were agreed upon between the trustees and pur- 
chasers, for the government of the colony, and in 1677 the ship Kent arrived 
with 230 passengers, who formed a settlement at Burlington. Other ships 
arrived in 1678 and 1679, and the success of the colony was assured. Some 
who thus came as settlers in New Jersey crossed over to the western shore of 
ihe Delaware, where courts had been established among the Swedes and 
Dutch, at New Castle and Upland, and prominent among these was Robert 
Wade, at the latter place. 

It was perhaps by his association with the affairs of the province of New 
Jersey that William Penn's attention was drawn to the establishment of a 
colony to the westward of the Delaware, and on the 4th of March 1680 
(1681, N. S.), he obtained from Charles II a charter for that object. This was 
granted partly in consideration of a debt from the Crown to Admiral Sir 
William Penn, deceased, father of the grantee. The latter would have called 
the province Sylvania, but the king insisted on the prefix "Penn," and on 
April 2, 1681 issued a proclamation, directing the inhabitants of the said 
province to yield all due obedience to William Penn, his heirs and assigns, as 
absolute proprietaries and governors thereof. On April 10th Penn commis- 
sioned his cousin, William Markham, deputy governor of the colony, the 
government thereof having been previously exercised at New York, at which 
place Markham had arrived June 21st, on his way to the Delaware. William 



EAELY SETTLEMENTS. 5 

Penn issued a prospectus in regard to the disposal of lands in Pennsylvania to 
such as designed to remove thither, and also prepared certain "Conditions and 
Concessions," prescribing rules for the survey and settlement thereof, treat- 
ment of the Indians, and other matters, probably preliminary to a frame of 
(j'overnment. These consisted of twenty articles, of which the first seven re- 
late especially to the taking up of the land, as follows : 

I. That so soon as it pleaseth God that the above persons arrive there, a 
certain quantity of land or ground plat shall be laid out for a large town or 
city, in the most convenient place upon the river for health and navigation ; 
and every purchaser and adventurer shall, by lot, have so much land therein 
as will answer to the proportion which he hath bought or taken up upon rent. 
But it is to be noted, that the surveyors shall consider what roads or highways 
will be necessary to the cities, towns, or through the lands. Great roads from 
city to city not to contain less than forty feet in breadth, shall be first laid out 
and declared to be for highways, before the dividend of acres be laid out for 
the purchaser, and the like observation to be had for the streets in the towns 
and cities, that there may be convenient roads and streets preserved, not to be 
encroached upon by any planter or builder, that none may build irregularly, to 
the damage of another. In this custom governs. 

II. That the land in the town be laid out together, after the proportion 
of ten thousand acres of the whole country ; that is, two hundred acres, if the 
place will bear it; however, that the proportion be by lot, and entire, so as 
those that desire to be together, especially those that are by the catalogue laid 
together, may be so laid together both in the town and country. 

III. That when the country lots are laid out, every purchaser, from one 
thousand to ten thousand acres, or more, not to have above one thousand acres 
together, unless in three years they plant a family upon every thousand acres, 
but that all such as purchase together, lie together, aud if as many as comply 
with this condition, that the whole be laid out together. 

IV. That where any number of purchasers, more or less, whose number of 
acres amounts to five or ten thousand acres, desire to sit together in a lot or 
township, they shall have their lot or township cast together, in such places as 
have convenient harbours, or navigable rivers attending it, if such can be 
found ; and in case any one or more purchasers plant not according to agree- 
ment in this concession, to the prejudice of others of the same township, upon 
complaint thereof made to the governor or his deputy, with assistance, they 
may award (if they see cause) that the complaining purchaser may, paying 
the survey-money, and the purchase-money, and interest thereof, be entitled, 
enrolled, and lawfully invested in the lands so not seated. 

V. That the proportion of lands that shall be laid out in the first great 
town or city, for every purchaser, shall be after the proportion of ten acres 
for every five hundred acres purchased, if the place will allow it. 

VI. That notwithstanding there be no mention made in the several deeds 
made to the purchaser, yet the said William Penn does accord and declare, that 
all rivers, rivulets, woods and underwoods, waters, water-courses, quarries, 
mines and minerals, (except mines-royal,) shall be freely and fully enjoyed, 
and wholly by the purchasers into whose lot they fall. 

VII. That for every fifty acres that shall be allotted to a servant at the 
end of his service, his quit-rent shall be two shillings per annum, and the 
master or owner of the servant, when he shall take up the other fifty acres, his 
quit-rent shall be four shillings by the year, or if the master of the servant (by 
reason in the indentures he is so obliged to do) allot out to the servant fifty 
acres In his own division, the said master shall have, on demand, allotted him 
from the governor, the one hundred acres at the chief rent of six shillings per 
annum. 

The incidental manner in which allusion is made to the granting of fifty

acres to servants and the like quantity to their masters, at a small rent, indi- 
cates that it was a colonial custom not peciiliar to Pennsylvania. 

Finding that by a strict construction of his charter the southern boundary 
of his province would strike the Delaware river above the mouth of the 
Schuylkill, Penn purchased August 20, 1682, from the Duke of York a circle 
of twelve miles around New Castle, and the remainder of the territory now 
forming the State of Delaware, by deed of August 24, 1682. On the 30th of 
the same month he sailed for Pennsylvania, in the ship Welcome, with about 
one hundred passengers, and arrived at New Castle, in the Delaware, on the 
27th of October following. Prior to leaving England, on the 22d of 3d mo. 
(May) 1682, he forwarded a list of persons to whom he had sold unlocated 
lands in Pennsylvania to the amount of more than 500,000 acres, in order that 
the same might be surveyed. The Swedes and other settlers in possession at 
the date of AVilliam Penn's charter were, of course, undisturbed. 

The method of conveyance in use at that day, and for many years after- 
ward, was by lease and release ; — the lease placing the purchaser in possession, 
and the release, dated the day following, divested the former owner of all 
right and title to the property. After the survey of the land it was expected 
that each owner would obtain a patent, giving a description thereof by metes 
and bounds, but there was considerable neglect in this respect ; or if obtained 
they failed to be placed upon record. Whether William Penn actually signed 
many of the deeds of lease and release is uncertain, but an examination of 
some of them shows that his name was placed thereon by his secretary by the 
use of a stamp. In the list above mentioned the names were grouped together 
in purchases to the amount of 10,000 acres, which seems to indicate an inten- 
tion of placing each group in a separate township. This was found to be im- 
practicable, however, and there was great irregularity in the shapes of sur- 
veys and townships. 

Prior to the arrival of William Penn the settled part of the province was 
known as Upland County, with the seat of justice at Upland, now Chester, 
where courts had been held at least from 1676. "A letter addressed to 
Ephraim Herman in respect to summoning a Court to be held at New Castle on 
the 2d of November, and dated at Upland on the 29th of October, shows that 
William Penn had then arrived at his seat of government. He may have ar- 
rived the day before. The fancy of the artist has portrayed the landing of 
Penn at Upland ; but neither the hour, the day, nor the manner of his landing, 
is certainly known." Dr. George Smith, in the History of Delaware County, 
continuing and quoting from Clarkson, says : — 

"He landed at Upland, but the place was to bear that familiar name no 
more for ever. Without reflection Penn determined that the name of the 



FRIENDS' MEETINGS. 7 

place should be changed. 'Turning round to his friend Pearson, one of his 
own Society, who had accompanied him in the ship Welcome, he said, 
"Providence has brought us here safe. Thou hast been the companion of my 
perils. What wilt thou that I should call this place?" Pearson said "Chester", 
in remembrance of the city from whence he came. William Penn replied that 
it should be called Chester, and that when he divided the land into counties, 
one of them should be called by the same name:' Thus from a mere whim, 
the name of the oldest town; the name of the whole settled part of the 
province ; the name that would naturally have a place in the affections of a 
large majority of the inhabitants of the new province, was effaced, to gratify 
the caprice or vanity of a friend. ' ' 

The division of the province into the three counties of Chester, Philadel- 
phia and Bucks, probably occurred within a month of this time, but the 
boundaries were not very definite at first. 



FEIENDS' MEETINGS. 
Many of those who had purchased land in Pennsylvania, while still in 
England, as well as others, now began to arrive in considerable numbers. As 
they were mostly Friends or Quakers a number of meetings were established 
by them in 1683 and 1684. William Edmimdson, a minister from Ireland, 
visited America in 1675, and in that year held a meeting at the house of Robert 
Wade, at Upland. A meeting was probably held here regularly after 1677, by 
which time some other Friends had arrived in the neighborhood. 

It may be explained that the meetings of Friends are classified as for wor- 
ship and for discipline. The latter are again divided into preparative, 
monthly, quarterly and yearly meetings. One or more meetings for worship 
may form a. preparative meeting. One or more preparative meetings 
may form a monthly meeting. Two or more monthly meetings may form a 
quarterly meeting, and several quarterly meetings may form a yearly meeting. 
In the early days these regulations were not so closely adhered to as later, and 
we find that some monthly meetings called every third meeting a quarterly 
meeting. The monthly meetings are the principal executive branch of the 
Society and keep the most voluminous records. New meetings are established 
by these, with the approval of the quarterly meetings. 

The Friends at Upland were for a time members of Burlington Monthly 
Meeting, of which a session was "held at Upland, in the house of Robert 
Wade, the 15th of the 9th month, 1681," but the first meeting of the kind, held 
by Friends of the Western Shore alone, is set forth in the following minutes : 

"the 10 day of ye 11 month, 1681. 



8 , , THE KIRK FAMILY. 

"A monthly meeting of friends belonging to marcus hooke & vpland 
held then at Robert Wad's house." 

"the 14 day of ye 12 month, 1681. 

"A monthly meeting heeld by f rends at marcus hooke." 

No other meeting is mentioned until 

"the 9th day of ye 3d mo. 1682. 

A monthly meeting held then by freends belonging to marcus hooke & 
vpland at Robert Wad's house." 

Up to this time no business appears to have been transacted by the meet- 
ing. The next date is 

"the 3 day of ye 6th month 1682. 

"A monthly meeting held then by f rends belonging to marcus hooke 
alls Chechester & vpland and ye adioyning Inhabetants, at Robert Wad's 
house. 

"At this meeting William Clayton juner and elezebeth bezor, both living 
at Chichester, have declared their Intentions of marriage : & its ordered by the 
meeting that morgan druet & Robert AVade doe make enquirey conserning 
them & give it in to ye next monthly meeting. ' ' 

"At the monthly meeting at vpland the 11th 7 mo. 1682. 

"Large paper booke, unruled, being fitt for the servise of monthly and 
quarterly meetings is to be procured against the next monthly meeting, & 
Robt Wade is desired to get the said booke. 

"It was then agreed yt a meeting shall be held for ye service & vForship 
of god every first day at ye court house at Vpland. 

"And also agreed that there be three meetings in the week time the 
westerne part to meet at Chichester the 5th day of the v?eek and the middle 
meeting at Harold at Wm. Woodmansons the 4th day of the week and the 
Eastern meeting at Ridley at John Simcocks the 5th day of the week mitill 
otherwise ordered. 

"The monthly meetings for men & women to be the first second day of 
the week in every month at Robert Wades house. 

"Wm Clayton & Elizabeth Bezor did again present their former intentions 
of marriage but friends findeing that her parents were absent and had not 
their consent for such proceedings, nor certificate of her clearness from other 
jnen, did advise these parties to waite further untill all things be cleared ac- 
cording to the practise of friends and good order of truth." 

The following are the headings of the monthly minutes succeeding the 
above : 

"At the men's meeting at Upland the: 2: day of the 8: month: 82." "At 



: SETTLERS IN DARBY TOWNSHIP. 9 

the men's meeting at Vpland the 6th of 9 mo. 82." "At our men and women's 
meeting at Chester the : 1 : of : 11 month : 82." 

The old book from which the foregoing entries are taken, appears to bear 
this inscription, though very dim with age: "The Register Booke belonging 
to Marcus hook and Upland Meeting, ye 3d of ye 6 month 1681." About 1711 
the minutes were transcribed by Thomas Chalkley, who changed the word 
Upland to Chester, beside making other variations from the original. 

On the 1st of 11th month 1682, "it was condescended to that f rinds at 
Chichester may hold a meeting there on the first day of the weik for the servis 
of god untill the next monthly meeting, then to have further aprobation con- 
serning it." At the next meeting 5th of 12th mo. 1682-3, this matter does not 
appear on the record, but "Its concluded by ye sd meeting yt Tho: Brassie & 
James Kennerly speake to John Blunston or some of Derby meeting to joine 
wth us in our months meeting to considder of & order ye necessary affaires be- 
longing to ye same." This is the first allusion to Darby Meeting, which had 
probably been recently established independently of any other. They may 
have joined with Chester Friends in a monthly meeting capacity for a time but 
on the 2d of 5th month 1684 Darby Monthly Meeting held its first session. 
Ila^rerford Monthly Meeting, composed of the meetings in Haverford, Radnor 
and Merion, was established the same year, the record beginning with the 10th 
of 2d month (April, 0. S.), while the monthly meeting of Chichester and Con- 
cord (later known as Concord Monthly Meeting) was first held on the 17th of 
1st mo. (March) 1684. As the settlements progressed other meetings were set 
lip, of which further mention will be made hereafter. The connection of the 
Kirk family with the Society, for more than 200 years, as well as of those with 
whom they have intermarried, justifies a detailed history of these meetings. 

The Darby Meeting has occupied a somewhat unique position in the his- 
tory of the Society. Unlike Chester Monthly Meeting, which at one time had 
seven branches. Darby Monthly Meeting was composed of the one congxega- 
tion which never established any offshoots. This was owing to the fact that 
they were hedged about with the monthly meetings of Chester, Philadelphia 
and Haverford, and there was no luioccupied territory to colonize. 



SETTLEMENT OP DARBY TOWNSHIP. 

The settlers in this township were mostly from the English counties of 
Derby and Leicester, with a few from Nottingham, and appear to have been of 
a high order of respectability and intelligence. They kept the best township 
record known to the writer and the following extracts, copied from notes 



10 THE KIRK FAMILY. 

collected by the late Dr. George Smith, of Upper Darby, author of the History 
of Delaware County, 1862, are of much interest to genealogists : 
[Title page] ' ' UPPER DARBY RECORDS. 

"Transcribed from the old Record Book since the Division in the year 
1786: 

"Containing an account of the first adventurers from old England, with 
an account of all the settlements in this township — in what year they were 
settled and in whose occupation they are in at this present time. [Several 
other matters enumerated.] 



"The Originall Record of the Township of Darby in the County of Chester 
and Province of Pennsylvania as it was settled by the English under William 
Penn Esquire, Proprietor and Governor in Chief of the said Province in the 
year of our Lord one thousand six hundred and eighty two ; giving an account 
when each settlement* was begun for the better regulating the inhabitants in 
serving the respective offices of said toAvnship as constables, overseers of the 
Poor, Supervisors, &c., &c. 

"The following are the names of the first adventurers from Old England 
who settled in the Township of Darby, viz." 

Samuel Bradshaw and Thomas Worth came from Oxton in the County of 
Nottingham. 

John Blunston & Michael Blunston from little Hallam in the county of 
Darby. 

George Wood from Bonsall in the county of Darby. 

Joshua ffearn from Darby in the county of Darby. 

Henry Gibbins from Parividge in the county of Darby. 

Samuel Sellers from Belper in the county of Darby. 

The above came in the year . . . 1(!82. 

Richard Bonsall from Mouldridge in the county of Darby. 

Edmund Cartlidge from Ridings in the county of Darby. 

Thomas Hood from Brason in the county of Darby. 

Jfihn Hallowell from Hucknal in the county of Nottingham. 

John Bartram from Ashburn in the coxmty of Darby. 

William Wood from Nottingham. 

Thomas Bradshaw from Oxton in the county of Nottingham. 

Robert Nailer from Manniash in the county of Darby. 

Richard Tucker from Warminster in the county of Wilts. 

The above came in the j^ear . . . 168.5. 

Robert Scothorn from Oxton in tlie county of Nottingham. 

James Cooper from Bolton in the county of Lancaster in 1675, and from 
IVIayfleld in the county of Stafford in the year 1683. 

John Hood from Castledunnington in the county of Leicester. 



*By the word settlement we are to understand the acquisition of land and 
the founding of a home. There is conclusive evidence that several of the 
Darby settlers had been in the country from two to eight years before making 
a "settlement."

Boone & Mathias Natsilas." 

It may be noticed that up to 1686 the Darby Township record states that 
the persons named came over in a certain year, but in 1687 the year is given 
as the date of settlement. In the Pennsylvania Archives, Second Series, xix, 
251, a John Kirk is mentioned as having come over in 1682 or 1683, and there 
is reason to believe this was the Darby settler.

In the records of the Chester County Court, under date of 10th Mo. 9th 1690, 
we find a suit of Micah Thomas, plaintiff, against Thomas Kirk, defendant, "in 
action of ye Case. The Jury finds for ye plaintiff Six pound, ye Cost of suit 
and damage being therein included." 

This Thomas Kirk was doubtless a brother to John Kirk. He appears 
later in Bucks County, Pa., but whether he had a family has not been ascer- 
tained. 

We have seen that John Kirk settled in Darby in 1687. He had doubtless 
brought a little money with him, the savings of his few years since reaching 
his majority, with which to establish himself in a home of his own. It would 
appear that he soon bargained for 100 acres of land, and as roads were needed 
for the use of the settlers he was probably among those who petitioned the 
court for one to accommodate his farm and others. The following appears in 
the old court record :

Having become the owner of some land, John Kirk was now prepared to 
establish himself as the head of a family. 

"Att A Monthly meetinge at Darby ye 14th day of ye 1st mo : 1688 :

The marriage probably occurred within a week of the last date above 
mentioned. 

The will of Peter Bllot of Carcushooke in the County of Philadelphia, 
Taylor, is dated 9th of September 1687, and proved 4th of 10th month 1688. 

"I give and bequeath all my Lands and houses now in my possession to

Carcus Hook, or Karkoens Hook, was on the east side of Darby Creek. 
The late Dr. George Smith, author of the History of Delaware County, 1862, 
gives the residence of Peter EUet as Kmgsessing, on the west bank of the 
Schuylkill, near its mouth, and John Ellet, son of Peter, certainly resided 
there. But little effort has been made to trace the family. Peter Elliot, 
doubtless a grandson, married Hannah Hunt in 1736, and Sarah Bonsall in 
1753. 

"Att a Court held att Chester for ye County of Chester ye 3d day in ye

It was usual for all constables to attend the sessions of court and we are 
not informed as to the reason for their concerted action, or non-action, in this 
case. A worthy citizen was to be tried for horse-stealing on a technical 
charge, but David Lloyd, the foremost lawyer of the time, spoke to the indict- 
ment, showing that the judges' commissions were defective and that they 
could do nothing. Perhaps this result was foreseen. 

Had John Kirk been the only constable who failed to attend we might 
attribute his absence to sickness, as his death occurred on the 28th of the 
same month.

GENEALOGY 

OF THE 

KIRK FAMILY. 



1. John Kirk, the son (and second of the name) of Godfrey Kirk, (p. 12) 
born 6th Mo. 14th 1660, at Alfreton in Derbyshire, England, came to Darby 
Township, (now) Delaware County, Pa., where he married Joan EUet about the 
Second Month 1688, and died 8th Mo. (October, 0. S.) 1705. Joan, who was 
the daughter of Peter Ellet, married a second husband, John Thomas, whom 
she survived, and was living in 1735. 

Children of John and Joan Kirk. 

2. Anne Kirk, born in Darby, 1688-89, married Benjamin Peters. 

3. Godfrey Kirk, b. 9 Mo. 27, 1690 ; married Rachel Ellis. 

4. John Kirk, b. 1 Mo. 29, 1692 ; m. Sarah Tyson. 

5. Samuel Kirk, b. 9 Mo. 11, 1693 ; died unmarried. 

6. Mary Kirk, b. 12 Mo. 17, 1694 ; m. John Warner. 

7. Elizabeth Kirk, b. 3 Mo. 9, 1696 ; m. John Twining. 

8. Joseph Kirk, b. 7 Mo. 1, 1697 ; m. Ann Hood.

sey. 

12. Thomas Kirk, b. 12 Mo. 26, 1704; m. Mary Shaw. 

Further particulars will be given of these children in the following pages. 

It must be borne in mind that until 1752 the year began on March 25th, 
and March was considered the First Month. 



SECOND GENERATION. 25 

2. Anne Kirk, boru in Darby 1688-89, appears to have married Benjamin 
Peters. 

At Darby Monthly Meeting of Women Friends, 10, 1, 1708: "Anna Sellers 
& Katharine Rhodes ordered to speak to Anne Kirk concerning a Report of 
some behaviour of hers that Truth's Testimony is against." 

12, 4, 1708: "Also this meeting not being satisfied with -what Anne Kirk 
offered on account of clearing her self from the Report she lies under, ordered 
that Anne Garrett & Phebe Blunston, Sarah ffearn & Katharine Rhodes to 
Enquire of the Reporter and hear them face to face." 

1, 2, 1708-9 : "The friends ordered by the last meeting to hear the parties 
face to face Did so and acquainted this meeting that the Reporter stood to 
what he had Reported before them all : which meeting did not find that the 
said Anne Kirk was clear from the Report that was upon her." 

2, 6, 1709 : "Likewise it is the Judgment of this meeting that it is Anne 
Kirks own Business to clear her self from the report that is iipon her till which 
time this meeting cannot have unity with her Except she give satisfaction." 

It may be that she was guilty of dancing but the record gives no intima- 
tion of the character of the offence. She appears to have married Benjamin 
Peters, and they signed as witnesses to the marriage of her sister Mary to John 
Warner, Oct. 20, 1715, next after her mother and step-father. Benjamin 
Peters was the son of Thomas Peters, a Welshman, of the city of Philadelphia, 
who died in 1724, leaving a wife, Alice, and children, Thomas, Benjamin, 
Rees, Mary (m. Abraham Kite), William, Margaret and Elizabeth. 

3, Godfrey Kirk, born in Darby 9, 27, 1690 ; died in Wrightstown Town- 
ship, Bucks County, 1740 ; married 11, 17, 1724, at Haverf ord Meeting to Rachel 
Ellis, born 2, 28, 1691 ; daughter of Humphrey Ellis and Jane David, of Haver- 
ford Township, (now) Delaware County, Pa. He appears to have owned land 
near Newtown, Bucks County, in 1716, but was of Wrightstown at the time of 
his marriage. He probably had not kept in very close touch with Friends for 
some years, and having been long absent from the place of his birth his mem- 
bership there had grown dim. At all events, when about to marry he made 
application at Wrightstown Meeting, 6, 8, 1724, to be admitted to membership ; 
and on 9, 3, 1724, "his request hath been considered and this meeting accepts 
him as a member." 

He was by trade a mason. His widow is mentioned, as living, in the will 
of her sister Margaret Ellis, 1754. 



26 THE KIRK FAMILY. 

The will of Godfrey Kirk, of Wrightstown, is dated, 8, 8, 1740 ; proved 
Nov. 14, 1740. To his son Samuel he gave the plantation at 21 : mentions wife 
Rachel and daughters Jane and Sarah, and appoints his brother Isaac and 
friend Thomas Lancaster executors. 

It appears by records at Doylestown that he owned land near Newtown as 
early as 1716. The history of his descendants here given is mainly taken from 
the Fell Genealogy, published 1891. 

4. John Kirk, born in Darby 1, 29, 1692 ; died in Abington Township, 
Philadelphia (now Montgomery) County, 8, 9, 1759, and buried at Abington 
Meeting; married at Abington Meeting 8, 17, 1722, Sarah Tyson, born 9, 12, 
1698 ; buried 6, 19, 1780 ; daughter of Rynear Tyson and Mary Roberts of 
Abington. At Abington Monthly Meeting, 1, 26, 1722, he produced a certifi- 
cate of membership from Darby Meeting. 

Abstract of deed, dated Dec. 11, 1723, between Joan Kirk, John Eliot and 
John Marshall, Executors of the last will and Testament of John Kirk, late of 
Darby in ye County of Chester in the Province of Pennsylvania, mason, de- 
ceased, of the first part, and Godfrey Kirk, Joseph Kiric, Isaac ICirk and 
Thomas Kirk, four of ye sons of said John Kirk, of ye second part, and John 
Kirk of Abington in ye County of Philadelphia in ye said Province of Pennsyl- 
vania, mason, and another son of ye said decedent of ye third part. 

Whereas John Hood late of Darby, weaver, deceased, by his Indenture 
dated ye 10 day of the 2 mo. called April, 1697, did grant unto the said John 
Kirk, ye father, a tract of 500 acres of land : 

Beginning at a corner marked Black oak standing in ye line of Philip Hills 
land, thence N. E. by the said Hills land and John Ironmongers land 240 
perches to a corner post standing in the line of ye said John Ironmongers land ; 
thence N. W. by a line of marked trees dividing the said land from the 
said John Hood's land 334 Perches to a corner post ; thence S. W. by Henry 
.Johnson's land 240 Perches to a corner post standing by a sti'eet or Road ; 
thence S. E. by ye said Street or Road 3.34 Perches to ye said corner marked 
Black Oak, ye place of beginning containing BOO acres ; to hold to him the said 
John Kirk ye father, his heirs and assigns, as by the Indenture acknowledged 
in open Court at Philadelphia July 6, 1697. 

And Whereas ye said John Kirk, ye father, by will dated 28 Oct. 1705, de- 
vised to his six sons the said 500 acres of land. Samuel Kirk sometime after- 
ward died and by his will devised his share of the land to his brother John 
Kirk ; and Godfrey Kirk, for a valuable consideration, granted his share to his 
brother John Kirk, to whom the executors and the otlier legatees confirm the 
said 500 acres in consideration of the sum of £100. 

See Deed Book J., No. 12, p. 405. 

Abstract of Will of John Kirk, 2d. 

Be it Remembered that I John Kirk of Abington in ye County of Philadel- 
phia in the Province of Pennsylvania, yeoman, being weak in body but of 
senceable mind memory and understanding, for which and all other mercies and 
blessings on me bestowed from time to time I return thanks to Almighty God, 
the author of my being, calling to mind ye uncertainty of my time here and 
feeling symptoms of mortality laying hold of my body at times I have thought 
proper to settle my worldly aflfairs by this my last Will and Testament. First

For some reason no notice appears to have been taken of this marriage 
by the meeting, but on 9 Mo. 7, 1739, "Mary Warner, the wife of John Warner 
of Blockley and Daughter of John Kirk, deceased, appeared at this meeting 
and gave in a paper of condemnation for being married by a priest", which 
was read and received. She also requested a certificate to Haverford Monthly 
Meeting. This was granted 10, 5, 1739. It is singular that it should have been 
said she was married by a priest (minister), for the marriage certificate shows 
to the contrary. 

7. Elizabeth Kirk, born in Darby 3, 9, 1696 ; died 11, 8, 1774, in New- 
town, Bucks Coimty, Pa. ; married 11 Mo. 1718, at Darby Meeting, to John 
Twining, born in Eastham, Mass., 1, 5, 1692-3 ; died in Newtovrai 8, 21, 1775 ; 
son of Stephen Twining and Abigail Young, of that place. He inherited lands 
in Newtown from his father, and also other lands at Eastham, Mass., the 
former residence of the family. In his will, dated 3, 31, 1773, he devised to his 
son John 50 acres, and to grandson Joseph 100 acres, all in Warwick Town- 
ship. In 1752 he sold 300 acres for £494, on the north branch of the 
Neshaminy Creek. 

Elizabeth was an overseer of Wrightstown Monthly Meeting for a num- 
ber of years. 

William Twining is found at Yarmouth, Mass., in June, 1641, at which 
time his daughter Isabel was married to Francis Baker. A few years later he 
removed to Eastham, where, in 1652, he married Anna Doane, and his death 
occurred April 15, 1659. 

Beside his daughter Isabel he had a son William Twining, born about 
1625, who married about 1650, at Eastham, Elizabeth Deane, dau. of Stephen 
Deane and Elizabeth Ring. A few years before his death, which occurred 
Nov. 4, 1703, he removed to Newtown Township, Bucks County, Pa. His 
widow died Dec. 28, 1708. Their children were Elizabeth, Anne, Susanna, 
William, Mehitable, Joanna and Stephen. 

Stephen Twining, born Feb. 26, 1659, married Jan. 3, 1683, Abigail Young, 
born 1660, died April 9, 1715 ; dau. of John and Abigail Young. He came with his 
father to Bucks County and purchased 690 acres of land in Newtown. His chil-

Ind., 1905. 

8. Joseph Kirk, born in Darby 7, 1, 1697 ; died there 11, 16, 1773 ; mar- 
ried 7 Mo. 1723, at Darby Meeting, Anne Hood, born 12, 22, 1702-3 ; daughter 
of Samuel Hood and Mary Hudson of that township. He was a tailor by trade 
but doubtless carried on farming to some extent. In 1764 he was taxed with 
86 acres of land in Upper Darby, one horse, two cattle and two sheep, but 
young stock were probably not taken into account. He served in the various 
to^vnship offices, as constable, 1723, supervisor, 1726, overseer of the poor, 1736, 
and fence viewer 1735 and 1736. 

The title to Joseph Kirk's land is thus stated: William Penn gave a 
patent, dated July 30, 1684, to Joshua Fearne for 200 acres. Joshua Fearne, 
by deed of December 12, 1692, conveyed 100 acres to his brother Josiah Fearne, 
who, on Dec. 27, 1717, conveyed the same to Samuel Garrett, and he in turn 
conveyed 86 acres thereof to Joseph Kirk and Ann his wife, Sept. 5, 1723.

9. Sarah Kirk, born in Darby 12, 23, 1698 : died 1755 ; married 7, 23, 
1723, at Darby Meeting, Nathaniel Twining; born at Easthani, Mass., 3, 27,

He was first married 10, 22, 1719, to Joan Penquite, born 1, 18, 1696; died 
7, 27, 1720; daughter of John and Agnes Penquite. She left no issue. Nathaniel 
was a farmer and lived on 300 acres of land inherited from his father, in New- 
town. A power of attorney executed by him 5, 6, 1742, in which his "loving 
brother John Twining of Newtown Township" is made sole executor of his 
business, etc. is yet in a good state of preservation, in possession of his 
descendant, Thomas J. TAvining, compiler of the Twining Genealogy. It is a 
nicely executed document in which the name of Nathaniel Twining is signed 
in a bold but legible hand.

By the will of his father William Kirk inherited the homestead in Upper 
Darby, containing 150 acres of land. He died intestate and letters of adminis- 
tration on his estate were granted June 2, 1749, to his son John Kirk.

In 1729 Isaac Kirk purchased one hundred acres of land from John Brock, 
in lower Buckingham Township, (the deed says) for £90, on which he settled, 
and died there about 1781. From the deed we learn that he was a mason and 
came from Newtown Township to Buckingham. At his death he owned some 
three hundred acres. From Wrightstown Monthly Meeting records we find 
his name on the business committees of the meeting as early as 
3 Mo. 4, 1734, and as late as 1 Mo. 4, 1763, when he requested to be re- 
leased from his service as overseer. On a draught of Wrightstown graveyard 
we find the resting place of Isaac and Elizabeth Kirk marked ; also Isaac Kirk 
Jr., his son, with many others of this numerous family which are laid in this

Children of (6) Mary Kirk and John Warner. 

24. Mary Warner, (Mary, John,) b. 8, 24, 1717, in Blockley Township, 
Philadelphia County; m. 11, 11, 1739, at Merion Meeting, Jacob Heston, b. 5, 
20, 1713 ; d. 1766 ; son of Zebulon Pleston and Dorothy Hutchinson of Upper 
Makefield, Bucks County, where they resided. He was a tailor by trade and 
owned a large tract of land in Makefield and Wrightstown. 

Following a record of the births of the children of Zebulon and Dorothy 
HestOD, among the papers of Thomas Warner of Wrightstown, Bucks Co., is 
this statement : — "The above data of children's names and births was taken 
out of the Book of Records in Eastham. Barnstable Bay, Massachusetts, 5th 
mo. 31st 1715, by Thomas Paine, Town Clerk." 

This statement must have referred to some older records, as the children 
of Zebulon Heston were born in the vicinity of Trenton, N. J., and in Bucks 
Co., Pa. That he came from Eastham is likely, and there is evidence that he 
contributed to the erection of an Episcopal Church near Trenton. In the 
women's minutes of Chesterfield Monthly Meeting, N. ,J., under date of 12 Mo. 
3, 1697, occurs the following : 

"Also at this Meeting Zebulon Heston late of New Town of Long Island, 
and Dorothy Hutchinson, living within the bounds of this meeting, have de- 
clared their Intentions of marriage, desiring Friends consent. Whereupon Ex- 
amination Friends finds the thing dubious till he the said Zebulon produce a 
Certificate from Relations and our Friends Monthly Meeting in those parts 
from whence he came to our satisfaction ; so upon such condition Friends finds 
meet to order two friends (vict) Hannah Overton and Sarah Wheatly to make 
enquiry of the young woman clearness from others on that account and make 
report to next Monthly Meeting." 

The matter is not mentioned by men, nor further by women, and it is likely 
they married in some other way. Dorothy Hutchinson was the daughter of 
Thomas Hutchinson, of Beverly, in Yorkshire, who married 3, 29, 1C68. Dorothy 
Storr of Oustwick. These came to Maryland and later removed to "Hutchinson 
Manor," in New Jersey. 

Zebulon and Dorothy Heston removed within the limits of Falls Monthly 
Meeting about 1707, and in 1711 to Upper Makefield, within the limits of 
Wrightstown, where he died, and was buried at Wrightstown 12, 27, 1719-20. 
His widow m. Thomas Stackhouse 7 Mo. 1725.

26. Sarah Warner, b. in Bleckley 12, 25, 1723 ; m. Thomas Pollin of Phila- 
delphia. Little information has been obtained respecting them. 

27. Elizabeth Warner, b. 7, 15, 1725 ; probably died unmarried. 

28. Esther Warner, b. 1, 28, 1728, in Blockley; d. 6, 30, 1801, in Wrights- 
town; m. 10, 17, 1748, at Merion Meeting, Joseph Lacey, b. 9, 8, 1725; son of 
John Lacey and Rachel Heston, dau. of Zebulon and Dorothy Heston. They 
resided in Wrightstown, where he was a farmer. 

William Lacey, with his father-in-law (step-father?) William Parlett, and 
Elizabeth his wife, brought a certificate from Friends at Newport "In ye Isle a 
whight ye 1 of ye 4 month 1608." In 1701 William Penn granted a tract of 292 
acres to William Parlett and William Derrick, but this grant not having been 
confirmed, Penn granted the land to William Lacey, the son-in-law of Parlett, 
in 1708. This was near Wrightstown. In 1718 William Lacey conveyed to his 
son John 73 acres, and an additional 120 acres in 1733 ; and in 1726 100 acres to 
his son Thomas Lacey, making in all 293 acres. 

The stream known as "Randall's Run" passes through this tract. A mill 
was built on it in 1743, by John and Thomas Lacey, and is now known as 
Vandegrift's mill. It was owned many years by the Carver family. The tract 
comprises the present John Molloy farm and mill at Wycombe. We are not in- 
formed if William Lacey had other sons beside John and Thomas, but he ap- 
pears to have had a grandson Lacey Rowles. John Lacey married, 2, 22, 1718, 
Rachel Heston, daughter of Zebulon and Dorothy Heston. She was born 9, 20, 
1699, and died 3, 13, 1761. The marriage took place at a meeting at the house 
of Stephen Twining. Eleven children were born to them, of vi'hom John 
married Jane Chapman and they were the parents of Gen. John Lacey of Bucks 
County, of Revolutionary fame.

Edward Hicks, a well known Friend and minister in his day, was a foster

' ' She was certainly the best example of humble industry that I ever knew for 
so wealthy a woman. Hicks was something of an artist and painted a scene

THIRD GENERATION. 41 

also furniture : To son Abner all residue, real and personal, and appointed his 
brothers Samuel and Isaac executors. 

44. Martha Kirk, b. 9, 5, 1733 ; m. 11, 7, 1764, at Gloria Dei (Old Swedes') 
Church, Philadelphia, to Seth Thomas. For this she was disowned by Darby 
Meeting, 1, 3, 1765. According to statements of a granddaughter Seth 
Thomas came from Wales with a brother John, who settled at Plymouth, Va. 
Seth's marriage is the first notice we have of him. He appears on the tax lists 
of Upper Darby, with 50 acres of land, from 1769 to 1774. After this they 
must have removed to Payette Co., Pa., though possibly by way of Virginia. 
Enos Thomas, supposed their son, was taxed in Fayette Co., 1785-6, though he 
could scarcely have been of age. In the spring of 1794 Seth Thomas, Samuel 
Todd and Jonathan Lyon and his brother Jacob shipped their families and 
goods aboard a flat boat (which was probably of their own construction) at 
Old Fort Redstone on the Monongahela, to Fort Duquesne or Fort Pitt, and 
thence down the Ohio to Georgetown, Pa., near the present State line, where 
they disembarked preparatory to the initiative of pioneers in the North West 
Territory. The Todds and Lyons remained in Beaver County, and in the early 
spring of 1798 Seth Thomas and family, consisting of himself, his wife Martha, 
his son Enos and a distant relative named William Thomas, crossed the Ohio 
River from Georgetown, moved out into the North West Territory and settled 
upon the N. E. Quarter of Section 26, now in St. Clair Twp., Columbiana Co., 
■Ohio, later the property of John Montgomery (1879). Seth was a frail old 
man Avhen the family settled in what is now Ohio. The date of his death is 
not known, but it was early in the 19th century, and he was buried in the first 
cemetery in that neighborhood on the A. R. Hickman farm, about one mile 
north of Calcutta. Martha (Kirk) Thomas died in 1825 and was buried in the 
Long's Run Cemetery, just east of the same town. The account of them and 
their descendants has been furnished by L. B. Altaffer, of Cleveland, Ohio. 

45. Isaac Kirk, b. 10, 23, ; was disowned by Darby Meeting 3, 3, 1763, 

for marriage " by a priest. ' ' His wife was named Rachel. He was taxed with 
86 acres of land in Upper Darby, 1765-1771, and 45 acres later : was constable 
for the years 1773 and 1776, and overseer of the poor in 1777. He removed to 
Washington County, Pa., and on March 20, 1798, Isaac Kirk of Finley Town- 
ship, yeoman, and John Kirk of the same place, yeoman, and wife Jane, exe- 
cuted a deed to Thomas Lewis of Upper Darby, Delaware County, in which is 
recited the will of John Kirk, dated April 18, 1796, giving to his cousin, the 
said Isaac Kirk, 16 acres of land on the north side of the Philadelphia and 
Lancaster Road, — during life, with remainder to John Kirk, son of Isaac. 
For this land Thomas Lewis paid £208. The will of Isaac Kirk, of Finley Twp. 
is dated June 28, 1803, and proven August 16th, 1803 ; in which he mentions 



42 THE KIRK FAMILY. 

Rachel, his wife, and six children, and appoints as executors Samuel England 
and Thomas Byers. These were directed to make a good deed to Nehemiah 
Green for land which the testator had sold to him. 

46. Sarah Kirk, b. 9, 5, 1741; m. 11, 21, 1764, Swedes' Church, Phila. to 
Jonathan Evans, perhaps son of William Evans, d. 1748, of Willistown Town- 
ship, and Ann his wife, afterward wife of Walter Lloyd. She was disowned 
by Darby Meeting 3, 28, 1765, for her marriage by a priest. They resided in 
Upper Darby, where he was a farmer. He d. in 1817. 

Deed, 6 July 1707: Joseph Kirk, surviving executor of Peter Hood of 
Darby, Samuel Kirk and Mary his wife, Jesse Kirk, Mary Kirk, Seth Thomas 
and Martha his wife, Isaac Kirk and Rachel his wife, Jonathan Evans and 
Sarah his wife, — devisees of their grandfather, Samuel Hood, of Darby, — all 
of the township of Darby, — to John Sellers of the same township. 

This recites Peter Hood, seized of messuage and part of two tracts of land, 
by will dated 2 April 1742, directed sale of lands except 10 acres next to lands 
of Joseph Kirk which had been conveyed to him, and appointed Joseph Kirk 
and John Thomas of Bleckley his executors. 

Now for £120, they convey to John Sellers one tract of 250 acres and an- 
other of 100 acres, excepting 50 acres devised by Samuel Hood to his grandson 
Samuel Kirk, and a piece devised by same to his daughter Mary Clarck. 

Samuel Kirk, Rachel Kirk, Jonathan Evans, Seth Thomas and Mary Kirk 
made their marks. (H. 120.) 

Children of (9) Sarah and Nathaniel Twining, of Newtown, Bucks Co., Pa. 

47. Isaac Twining (Sarah, John), b. 5, 25, 1724; died young. 

48. Samuel Twining, b, 1, 24, 1726, in Newtown Township, Bucks Co., 
Pa., on a large productive farm just outside of the borough limits. The farm 
adjoining on the north was owned by his brother Benjamin. He m. 10, 26, 
1752, Mary Jenks, b. 4, 20, 1733 ; d. 1803 ; dau. of Thomas Jenks and Mercy 
Wildman. 

At Middletown Mo. Mtg., 9, 14, 1752: Samuel Twining and Mary Jenks 
declared their intentions of marriage the first time. On 10, 5, 1752, they ap- 
peared the second time and declared the continuance of their intentions ; and 
the said Samuel having produced a certificate from Wrightstown Mo. Mtg. to 
the satisfaction of Friends they were left at liberty to consumate their said in- 
tention when they saw convenient. The committee appointed to have over- 
sight of the wedding reported 11, 2, 1752, that the marriage was "decently 
accomplished on the 26th of last month." 

He was disowned by Friends for some trivial offence, 7, 8, 1766, and the 
date of his death was not recorded by the meeting. 

49. Benjamin Twining, b. 6, 3, 1728, at Wrightstown ; d. evidently in 
Warren Co., N. J., 1784; was disowned by Friends for marriage out of meet- 



THIRD GENERATION. 43 

ing, about 1753, to Sarah . . . . ? He and wife released his share of the paternal 
estate, May 5th 1757, to his brother Samuel, for £200. The next year he sold 
his farm of 53 acres to John Harris, merchant, and probably removed soon 
after to Warren Co., N. J. Letters of administration on his estate were grant- 
ed to James Berry Aug. 31, 1784. 

On his 53 acres, immediately east of Newtown borougii, and recently platted 
into building lots, stands the house he built of Newtown brown stone. In this 
house Gen. Washington made his head-quarters just after the battle of Trenton, 
Dec. 1770. Altho the building has been repaired and enlarged the room in 
which Washington rested remains intact, relics and all. The old stone spring- 
house in front of this residence covers the spring which still flows an abundance 
of pure water. This old historic building is one-fourth of a mile south of the 
Presbyterian Church, built 1700, on land deeded by his father, Nathaniel. On 
the west end of this farm is an ancient burial ground, long since out of serv- 
ice, in which it is likely some of the early Twinings found their last resting 
place. 

50. Nathaniel Twining, b. 1, 25, 1730; m. Mehetabel Richards by New 
Jersey license, dated March 2, 1756, in which they are both said to be of Perth 
Amboy. In 1758 he conveyed 63 acres, his share of his father's estate to his 
brother Samuel for £252. He died about 1763 and his estate was settled by 
his brother Samuel in 1767. He left an only child, Sarah, and his widow 
married Barzillai Gaskill. 

51. Sarah Twining, b. 8, 26, 1737 ; d. 7, 16, 1816 ; m. 1st John Cauley of 
Northampton Township, evidently as his second wife. Second m. 5, 12, 1762,

53. Hannah Kirk, m. 1st Presb. Ch., Philadelphia, 8, 12, 1745, to John 
"Dolling" (Polling), and for this breach of discipline produced an acknow- 
ledgment to Darby Meeting 4, 4, 1746. A John Polin was taxed in Darby in 
1725, and in 1739 John Polin Junr, also appears. The name is variously 
written, PoUin, Paulin and Pawling, and it is claimed that it was properly 
Paulding. John and Hannah Polling conveyed her interest in the homestead 
to her brother John Kirk in 1769, but appear to have continued to live upon 
land of the latter, and in 1787 John Pollin was taxed with 40 acres. No record 
of their deaths has been discovered. 

At an Orphans' Court held at Chester the 1st of 8th Month 1695, "Ree Sent 
[Rees Hent] Brought A boy whose name Is John Pollen and there the Court 
Did order yt the said boy shall serve ye said Ree Sent tell he be of the age of 
one and Twenty years. And the said Ree Sent shall pay the said boy the sum of 
Twenty Pounds Att the expiration of his Time, the boy being Ten years and a 
halfe now this Court." 

54. Catharine Kirk m. Swedes' Ch., Philadelphia, 6, 27, 1754, to Thomas 
Lewis; and having been precautioned she was disowned by the meeting 11, 6, 
1754. She was evidently his second wife. The will of Thomas Lewis of 
Darby is dated 5, 11, 1782, and proved Sept. 17, 1783. He gives to daughter 
Rachel Marlow £3 : To son Samuel Lewis 20 shillings : Remainder of personal 
estate to wife Catherine, with use of the plantation until youngest daughter, 
Elizabeth, is capable of doing for herself. After wife's death the plantation 
to be divided between sons Thomas and Mordeeai, each of them paying to their 
sisters, Jane, Sidney, Demaris, Sarah and Elizabeth £5 each. Wife and son 
Thomas, executors. As Rachel Lewis and Joseph Marlow were married Jan. 
8, 1759, she must have been the daughter of a former wife, and it is prob- 
able that Samuel was her full brother. Thomas, Mordeeai and Elizabeth are 
mentioned in the will of their uncle John Kirk, but they have not been traced 
further. 

55. Elizabeth Kirk d. 6, 3, 1745, unmarried. 

56. William Kirk, d. 5, 31, 1745, as recorded by Darby Meeting.

minister at Germantown, but had no issue by her. His will is dated 12, 20, 
1810; proved 11, 8,1813. 

John Scarborough, who married Margaret Kirk, was a descendant of a John 
Searbrough, variously described as a blacksmith, whitesmith and coachsmith, 
belonging to Peel JMonthly Meeting of Friends of London, England. He settled 
near Langhorue. Bucks Count}', I'eunsylvania, in 1682, and rejoined his family 
in London, England, in lfiS4, leaving his only son John in Bucks County in the 
care of friends. The latter married Mary, whose maiden name is much desired, 
and settled in Solebury Township, about 1700, on the farm now owned by Isaac 
P. Scarborough, near Lahaska Station. 

The minutes of Buckingham Mo. Mtg. show that in 3d Mo. 1734, complaint 
was made of Robert Scarborough, son of John and Mary, on account of 
his outgoing in marriage, but on G, G, 1734 he produced a paper of acknowledg- 
ment which was taken for satisfaction. The births of two children of Robert 
and Elizabeth were recorded by that meeting, the.v being John, b. 11, 28, 1734, 
and Elizabeth, b. 0, 18, 1730. On 5 Mo. 4, 1737, John Scarborough requested a 
certificate for his brother Robert Scarborough to the monthly meeting at 
Opeckon in Virginia. By his father's will Robert had received 157 acres of 
land on the N. E. corner of the original 820 acre tract, and lived thereon till 6, 
10. 1737. when he conveyed it to John Rich. The following is a copy of a 
letter obtained by Henry W. Scarborough from Wallace Paxsou of Solebury, 
addressed "to John Searbrough in Solebury, Bucks County, Penncilvania, with 
care & speed." 

"Virginia Colony, Orange Co., 9th mo. 5th 1738:

48 THE KIRK FAMILY. 

Elizabeth Walmsley. They were members of Horsham Mtg. and resided in 
Moreland Township. 

William Walton of Oxhill in the county of Warwicl^, England, together 
with Joseph Hunt of Stratford upon Avon and William Hunt of Radway, all 
in the same county, by lease and release, dated 22d and 23d of September 1682, 
purchased from Edward Byllynge of London, one tenth of a "propriety" of land 
in West New Jersey ; a propriety being one-hundredth part of the provijice. 
William Walton devised, his interest in West Jersey to his sons Nathaniel, 
Daniel, Thomas and William, and these in 1704, being residents of the county 
of Philadelphia, in Pennsylvania, conveyed 100 acres of land vs'hich had been 
taken up in Gloucester Co., N. J., to Jolm Hugg of that place : all which appears 
by the deeds recorded in Gloucester County. 

Each of the four brothers purchased 100 acres of land from Thomas Fair- 
man of Shackamaxon, for £10, by deeds dated 1st of 10th Mo. 1688, as shown 
by deed-book E 2, vol. 5, pp. 85-6-7-8, Philada. 

Some years since a letter was found, written by Nathaniel to his brother 
William, 7th of October 1713, reminding the latter that he had paid five pounds 
for his passage from England, which had not been repaid, and that with com- 
pound interest for thirty years and upwards it would now amo\mt to a large 
sum. This indicates their coming to Pennsylvania about 1082. Several erron- 
eous statements have been published with reference to the time of their coming 
and the place from which they came. 

William Walton married in 1689 Sarah Howell, was a minister and died in 
Tortola in 1737, when on a religious visit to that island. His son Jeremiah, b. 
9, 23, 1694; d. 12, 17, 1740; m. Elizabeth Walmsley. 

Thomas AValmsley of Wadington Eaves, Yorkshire, and Elizabeth Rudd of 
Smelfats, in the same county, were married 9, 13, 1665, at the bouse of Jane 
Walne, at Staine Merrew, as shown by the records of Settle Mo. Mtg. They had 
children, Margaret, b. 6, 11, 1066; Mary, b. 2, 9, 1669, and Henry, b. 5, 25, 1671, 
whose births are found in the same records. A son Thomas and daughter Eliza- 
beth were born later, and perhaps other children. A certificate was granted by 
Settle Mo. Mtg. 7th of 4th JIo, 1682. for this and several other families who are 
credited with coming on the Welcome, to Pennsylvania, in company with Will- 
iam Penn. In one copy of said certificate it is represented that Thomas and 
Elizabeth Walmsley had six children, and in another no number is given. There 
was much sickness on the ship and many died, but no list appears to have been 
made. They arrived at New Castle on October 27th, and the records of Middle- 
town Mo. Mtg. show that Thomas Walmsley was buried about the 11th of the 
10th Mo. 1682. His widow was married in 1684 to John Purslowe, who had 
come from Dublin in 1677. 

Thomas Walmsley Jr. married In 1698, Mary Paxson, b. 12, 19, 1678 ; dan. 
of William and Mary Paxson of Middletown. He d. in 1754, aged about 80, and 
his widow in 1755. They had at least nine children :

years and died at the home of her daughter Mary (Harding) Walton. 

Thomas Harding was one of the largest landholders in Southampton Town- 
ship, in 1702, when the resurvey was made, his acres numbering 618. He was 
married in Philadelphia 2, 8, 1686, to Mary Bullock. His son Thomas, b. 12, 
24, 168G, married Mary Comly and had son Henry Harding, of Southampton, b.

8, 11, 1830; m. Bucks Co., 8, 20, 1775, Hannah Welding, b. 1, 13, 1754; 
d. 3, 7, 1816; dau. of John and Hannah Welding of Buckingham. The 
marriage was before Isaac Hicks, Esq., They at first lived near Doylestown, 
Pa. In the autumn of 1785, they removed to Wyoming Valley for the purpose 
of engaging in mercantile pursuits. 

Jesse Fell was a man of few words, but those fitly spoken, sensible aud ap- 
propriate ; grave and simple in manners, but when sure he was right, of inflex- 
ible firmness. He \\"as a man of clear mind and spotless integrity, and won 
universal confidence of the community, of which he became a most valuable 
and leading citizen. 

He was a man of unusual capacity for public affairs, as well as for busi- 
ness generally. Of devoted industry he relieved the usual labors of his pen and 
official duties by perfecting with his own hand the neatest and earliest, and the 
most productive garden in the place. His penmanship was remarkable for its 
neatness and correctness; and tliat his mind had been early trained is shown 
by numerous essays written for various purposes. 

He purchased the property at the corner of Washington and Northumber- 
land Streets in Wilkes Barre, 12, 12, 1787, and resided there as long as he lived. 
A very small portion of the house is yet (1891) standing, and still known as 
"The Old Fell House." 

For a long time it was the sojourning place of the lawyers and judges upon 
the circuit and of many local celebrities. He became sheriff of Luzerne County 
1789 and held the office two terms. He laid aside the peace principles of his 
forefathers and became prominent in military affairs, being appointed Lieuten- 
ant of the county by Gov. Thomas Mifflin in 1792, and also Brigade Inspector in 
1793 for the term of seven years. In 1798 Gov. Mifflin appointed him Associate 
Judge of Luzerne County, which position he filled with dignity as long as he 
lived, a period of over thirty-two years. 

He was the first president of the Luzerne Co. Agricultural Society, in 1810 : 
he was foremost in educational matters, and was an active member of various

scbemes for improving Iiighways. On Feb. 11, ISOS, he made a successfnl ex- 
periment of burning antbracite coal in a grate of his own invention, set in the 
fire-place of his house. He made the following entry on the fly leaf of his 
"Treatise on Masonry," which may be seen in the Historical Soc. Library. 

"Feb. 11 of Masonry 5808: — Made the experiment of burning the common 
stone coal of this valley in a grate ; find it answers the purpose of fuel, making 
a clearer and better fire at less expense than wood." 

His remains were interred according to the solemn and impressive form of 
the Masonic Institution, agreeably to the request left on record.

He was disowned by Friends in Bucks Co. 4, 4, 1782, for training with the 
militia, but it is probable he was subsequently restored, as his home at Union 
was a resort for Friends, and because his descendants so declare. They re- 
moved from Bucks Co. to Quakertown, N. J., where he was engaged in the full- 
ing business, at one time with a Mr. Stout, and evidently again with his 
brother Thomas Twining. In the year 1821 he settled in Union, N. Y., where 
he was preceded by his son William, who had bought a farm there. At this 
date of removal he evidently lived in Readington Twp., Hunterdon Co., N. J. 
He was a "thick heavy set man and very pleasant looking," and in his latter 
days, when very feeble, it is said he was often heard, after retiring, to repeat 
in trembling tones the Lord's Prayer. The old family Bible, from which the 
family records are obtained, is now in possession of Charles Cleveland of 
Broome Co., N. Y., a connection.

Louisa (Heston) Paxson, who passed away 4 Mo. 26, 1899, aged 97 years, 
was a historically picturesque figure. She was a real daughter of the Revolu- 
tion, and a daughter of a Revolutionary soldier, Col. Edward Warner Heston, 
the founder of Hestonville, where she was born 11 Mo. 25, 1801. The old Heston 
mansion was erected in 1776, on the old Lancaster Road near what is now 52nd 
Street, Philadelphia. 

The Heston family in this country dates back from 1699. Zebulon Heston 
was the founder ; lived with the Puritans for a time after his arrival here, but 
being a Quaker his religious sentiments induced him to settle in Bucks County. 
His grandson, Edward Warner Heston was a man of much note in the Revolu- 
tionary Army : from captain he was promoted to lieutenant-colonel. After the 
war he filled the office of Judge of the court of common pleas of Philadelphia, 
and was also State senator. Louisa Heston Paxson was widely known and 
honored. Several years ago the Daughters of the Revolution presented her 
with a gold souvenir spoon. — Doylestown Democrat, (1901).

Friend. 

"His was an earnest, toiling, struggling life, bvisj' and full of good works. 
Overlapping the fourth generation from his birth, accumulated experiences had 
given him wisdom rarely excelled. The honored recipient of a public office for 
fourteen successive years, he grew in public favor and trust. A volunteer in 
the war of 1812, a pioneer in Western New York, he felled the forest and reared 
with his own hands shelter for his increasing family. His life four times in 
jeopardy, once from fire, twice from the assassin, and oft in battle, bat he was 
graciously spared to rear his family and bless his friends. Powerful in debate, 
eloquent in conversation, an inveterate hater of slavery, he exerted all his in- 
fluence to its downfall and extinction."

1811. At this place he married, reared his family, farmed, kept store, prac- 
ticed medicine (Thompsonian System), etc.: Moved with his family to Hunt- 
ington, Ind., on the Wabash, where he bought 200 acres of choice land in tlie 
forks of the Wabash and Little River, a famous resort and place of Council for 
Red Men; started by overland Sept. 20, 1841, arriving there Oct. 9th following. 
The land at this date is valuable, being underlaid with the best of limestone; 
the scenery is picturesque. At that date Huntington was a hamlet of log huts, 
Indians numerous and wild game abounded. In 1890 the town had become a 
place of 8,000, extending to the old homestead. Because of the dreaded fever 
and ague he became sick of the country and in 1846-7 returned to N. Y. and en- 
gaged in the dairy business on his farm in North Collins Twp. Erie Co. He 
became lame in the knee in his younger days and remained so during life. A 
slender man, above the medium height, active, well informed, a ready conver- 
sationalist and much devoted to Friends' principles (Orthodox), which he oc- 
casionally preached in later life ; was also custodian of meeting records. 

The compiler of the Twining Genealogy frequently saw this grandfather 
ride to his first and fourtli-daj' meetings, some three miles away, through the 
storm and bitter cold, to worship with the "two or three" equally loyal ones 
who had gathered to uphold the cherished tenets of Quakerism.

always ready to sit at the feet of the humblest servant of God to be instructed. 

"She was generous : large hearted : a friend to the poor ; and had deeply 
at heart the benevolent institutions of the church. She had great gifts for 
prayers and religious eonver.sation. She spoke with a perspicuity and pathos . 
which few ministers were able to command, and in all respects she was a 
model Christian woman. 

"In her social relations she was affectionate and sincere, possessing a 
measure of good sense and prudence which fitted her for usefulness in this 
relation of life ; and feeling deep interest in the welfare and happiness of all 
to whom she was related. In that circle there was entertained for her a love 
and respect as unbounded as it was sincere and merited. But in her own 
family the luster of her life shoue, if possible, the brightest. There she was 
the object of the deepest and purest affection."

virtues were so ennobled and illumined by union and communion with God, 
and the constant indwelling of tlie Holy Spirit, that she seemed to breathe an 
atmosphere of purity, while she shed upon all about her the irridescent light 
and glory of a saintly life. Home was enlivened by an unfailing cheerfulness,

organizing "The Historical and Geological Society", and was an active, 
earnest member. In 1861 he was appointed Provost ilarshal, but declined the 
office. In the performance of every duty he not only did his work thoroughly, 
but well, and to the entire satisfaction of all parties interested. Captain 
Dennis was a man of sound judgment, possessed of a vast amount of informa- 
tion concerning public men and affairs, of high and pleasing social character- 
istics, dignified and honorable in liis intercourse with men, and a worthy 
representative of honorable ancestors. He gave valuable assistance in collect-

University of Pennsylvania and two at Jefferson Jlpmcal College, and received

degree the social qualities,' — fond of congenial companionship, full of anecdote, 
apt in illustration, with a memory stored with the traditions of the good old 
times of his youth, and with the history of the original and eccentric char- 
acters Who flourished In the earlier days of the Valley of Wyoming, he was a 
delightful and welcome guest wherever he went. 

"He possessed a v,'ouderf ul memory— every Instance, fact, event, date that he

had noticed, heard of, or acquired a knowledge of in his general and desultory 
reading, at once fastened itself in some cell of his mental structure, and was 
afterwards ready to be fovmd and reproduced intact and unaltered. Ancient 
and modern history, biography, general literature, art, poetry, natural history, 
all contributed their bovmtiful quota to this store-house of his, and drafts at 
sight upon any of these subjects were honored by his memory as soon as pre- 
sented. 

"He was well versed in geology, mineralogy, ornithology and botany, and 
if his modesty and indisposition to appear in print had not prevented he would 
long since have been recognized as an important contributor to the knowledge 
had of many curious and interesting peculiarities of the riches of the coal 
fields of the valley. His interest in natural sciences continued throughout uis 
life ; his knowledge of these increasing with years, made him an authority upon 
these subjects. 

"Dr. Dennis was one of the founders, and one of most active and efficient 
members of the AVyoming Historical and Geological Society. By his interest 
in its proceedings, care of and additions to its cabinet, and enthusiasm in be- 
half of its work, he contributed largely to its success and prominence. 

"He was a man of strict integrity, modest and without pretentions: proud 
he was, with the pride of one who scorns a base act : sensitive in the extreme, 
he was wounded by even the apparent acts of estrangement or neglect of his 
friends or patients. He was happy in his mnrriage and in his home, as else- 
where, he was gentle and tender. He loved children, and his sympathies went 
out especially to the little sufferers, to whose wants he was called to 
administer."

forgiving and forgetful of wrongs. Her charities were without ostentation, but 
widely felt ; and in her business relations she was .scrupulously exact. She was 
remarkable for her superb soprano voice, and while traveling in Europe it was

especially pure and sweet."

Howard was educated at Gwynedd, Pa., where he was boru, passing three 
years at the Gwyuedd Boarding School, widely linown in its time, kept by Hugh 
Foullie. Upon leaving this institution he taught school at New Britain, Bucks 
County, Pa., for one winter. During his school life he had developed a marked 
literary talent, and in 18G2, with Wihner Atl^inson (later to become his brother- 
in-law) he bouglit the Noristown, (Pa.) RepuhUcan, s.nA conducted it as editor 
(in 1864 it was merged into the Herald) until 1866. In this year he moved to 
Wilmington, Delaware, and (again with W. A.) founded in that city the Daily 
Commercial, the first daily paper in Delaware. 

While editor of the RepuNican he twice entered the emergency service of 
the Pennsylvania militia, called out in 1862 and again in 186.", to repel I«e's 
invasions of Pennsylvania. He was within hearing of both the great battles in 
which Lee was checked, Antietam and Gettysburg, but was actually engaged in 
neither. 

Upon the sale of the Commercial in 1ST7 he was connected with the Pliila- 
delphia Times and the West Chester Village Record, and became in 1881 editor 
of the American (Philadelphia), with which he remained until 1891. In 1884 
he bought the Journal (Philadelphia, weekly) and upon its merging with the 
Friends' Intelligencer in 188.5 he became chief editor of the combined paper, 
and retained that position until his death. For five years, beginning in 1891, 
he was associated with Charles Pleber Clark in conducting the Manufacturer. 

The purely literary labors of Howard M. Jenlsiins were extensive. He wrote 
"Historical Collections Relating to Gwynedd." volume I of John Russell Young's 
"Memorial History of Philadelphia," and "The Family of William Penn." He 
was engaged at the time of his death on a comprehensive history of Pennsyl- 
vania, a work in three volumes, since completed under the competent editor- 
ship of Charles P. Keith, of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. The num- 
ber of essays, historical sketches and pamphlets from his pen is large. 

Not only as the editor of the Society's organ, but in many lines of devoted 
effort, and by virtue of high character and intellect, Howard M. Jenkins was a 



362 THE KIRK FAMILY. 



leader of the Society of Friends. His activities in outside fields, historical, 
educational and philanthropic, were too extensive and varied for enumeration 
here. 

He died (as did his father and his maternal grandfather, Spencer Thomas) 
by an accidental fall, received Tenth month 13, 1902, at Cresco, Monroe County, 
Pa. He was buried at Upper Dublin Friends' burying ground, Montgomery 
County, Pa.

have been taken.
