BERRY says : " The name of Walker, as appears by certain 
records, was so called from their anciently holding various 
employments in the Royal Forests, as Verderers, King's Forest- 
ers, or Walkers, having the custody of certain walks, boundaries, 
or allotments ; but at what remote period the surname of Walker, 
simply, was adopted by any branch of the family as a distinguish- 
ing appellation remains a matter of doubt." 

There are many families of this name in Great Britain, 
descendants of which have settled all over the world, and there 
seems to be no connection between them, pointing to one 
fountain head, as in some other patronymics. It is well repre- 
sented in Burke ; every Biographical Dictionary has several 
Walkers in its lists, and it has been said to have the longest list 
of eminent men in biographical history. It was called " one of 
the mighty Sixty," in the rolls of Great Britain, occupying 
seventeenth place, — that is, there were sixteen families more 
numerous than it. 

The name also signifies " fuller," or weaver, in old English. 
We have a Ralph Ganger, or Walker, who came in with William 
of Normandy, too ; and if any of us wish to set up a coat-of- 
arms, we may choose our crest and motto from the Peerage, and 
flaunt it with the best of them. Plenty of American families 
have tacked themselves on to an ancestor, with no better claim 
than a similarity of name ; it may be that we descend from a 
long line, with its root in the Norman Conquest, or earlier, but 


we have nothing to prove it, or even to point that way. Our 
first ancestor whom we can call by name — Lewis Walker — left 
no mention of his father's name or people. There was nothing 
extraordinary in this at that time. He was starting a new Hfe in 
a new world, and " Lewis Walker, yeoman," sufficed. I have 
tried to connect him with the older branch, but unsuccessfully. 
What I did succeed in finding, I have put in the following pages. 
My imagination has constructed, out of the little I had, a man 
strong, brave, and true, who founded a family not unworthy of 
him, — the members of which are scattered over a great part of 
our country, and have been known for nearly two hundred years 
as the Walkers of Chester Valley. 

(fTijaptrr jFirst* 


THAT " the history of a family is a history of the land," is a 
recognized truth of Genealogy. Without the homestead, the 
members are separated ; with nothing to bind them together they 
are scattered and lost, like beads when the string is broken. 
There is no place where the tribe can meet, and where each one 
can feel the interest of heredity in the trees that shelter it, and in 
the streams that water the ancestral acres. What one sows a 
stranger reaps, is too true in the present condition of our bustling, 
restless life in America, and it is spoken of with pride when a 
man can say, " I live in the house where my father and grand- 
father have dwelt before me." We have some such homes in Penn- 
sylvania, as all can testify, and one of the oldest, where for seven 
generations one family has lived, for nearly two hundred years, 
Walker following Walker, can be seen in Chester Valley, and is 
the subject of my story. 

It lies between the North and South Valley Hills, and 
extends to the border line of Montgomery County. The creeks 
that drain its fertile pastures empty themselves, after a mile or 
more of pleasant loitering among green willowy nooks, into the 
cheerful, calm bosom of the Schuylkill River. Here dwell the 
farmer folk, the peaceful Quakers, descendants, for the most 
part, of those men and women who, for the sake of a quiet en- 
joyment of their religion, threw in their lot with those who came 
to make a home for themselves and their children in tlie New 
World. Here are the old homesteads where the scattered chil- 


dren gather from far and near on days of family reunion, and up 
on the hill-top, close to where the new Quaker meeting-house 
looks proudly over the country side, is the old graveyard, where 
they are, one by one, brought to sleep with their fathers, when 
life is done. Let us pause a moment at this spot ; it is the 
peacefulest resting-place, and before we have done our story all 
these small green hillocks will seem like dear old friends. Stand- 
ing here, let us look about us. What a wide sweep of pretty 
country ! Green pastures where the cattle graze, where yellow 
grain ripens on the upland, and old farm-houses nestle among 
the sycamores and apple orchards, their many chimneys smoking 
with the incense of hospitality, and through it all green country 
roads leading out beyond the sight to Port Kennedy, Paoli, 
King of Prussia, and Wayne. 

On our left is the long woody range of the South Valley 
Hill. Beyond that are the homes of wealth and luxury, that have 
not yet succeeded in getting a foothold in this simple, pastoral 
community. To the northwest Valley Forge is hidden from 
view by the wooded eminence of Camp Hill and Mt. Joy. The 
rising ground prevents, also, a sight of the Schuylkill River to 
the north, not far away. 

But before us and behind us, as far as we can see, the land, 
with few exceptions, belongs to the Walkers, or to their kinsmen. 
If they are not of the family, they have married into it. At one 
time, less than fifty years ago, there was scarcely an exception ; 
but several families have been obliged to leave their paternal acres 
for other homes, and their land has passed to strangers. Directly 
in front of us, between the four roads, and still the property of 
the family, is the original Walker land, where our earliest Penn- 
sylvania ancestor lived and died. The first settled part of this 
section of the country w^as where Joseph Walker now lives, 
whose house and barns lie nearest us, the walls of which are partly 






the same that were erected nearly two hundred years ago. 
Here, before 1708, came Lewis Walker and his wife, with their 
family of little children, to make a home for themselves on virL^in 

He had left Wales in 1686, arriving in Pennsylvania in 1687, 
after "a tedious passage of thirteen months," it is said. A 
mother and sisters were left behind him, but, though a desultory 
correspondence was kept up between them, they never saw each 
other again. We have no knowledge of the name of the ship 
which brought him to these shores, and were it not for two old 
letters that have come down to us, would we know anything of 
his family in Great Britain. 

The old chronicles, written by various members of his family 
a hundred years ago, always say that he came from Merioneth- 
shire,* Wales ; but this, we think, is a mistake. The following 
letter, copied from a yellow and faded document that had lain 
for more than a century with other papers in our great-great- 
grandmother's desk, removes all doubt from my mind as to his 

* Leah Moore is the authority for this, as will be seen by the following : 

" I have in my possession a brass, leather-trimmed snuff bo.v, containing the follow- 
ing memoranda : 

" ' Lewis Walker, of the great Valley, Tredifiin Township, Philadelphia County, in 
his youth left Marioneth in Wales 1686, had a tedious thirteen months on the water, 1687."

ON Redstone the i8 
OF June 171 5 
Dear and Loveing Brother, 

Having this opertunity I could not omit writing unto yo" to Let yo" Un- 
derstand that I am in good health hoping that these lines will finde yo" and 
yo""" family in like manner. I received a letter from yo" by James Protherie 
and I sent vo" a Letter in answer to it. I must needs tell vo" that vo« have 
been very negligent in writing to me yo" knowing that yo" had having 
[living ?] an aged mother in this country. Yo" know it is a duty Incum- 
bent on every child to have a regard to their parents and truly I performed 
my duty to my aged mother to the utmost of my power and was not 
troublesome to anv in her Life-time, but she have left me alone this twelve- 
month since May last and is gone I dought not to a better place where she 
shall look her Redeemer with joy and comfort in the face. I was very 
Loath to part with her if I could have help't it but god almighty was 
pleased to call her and we must all submit to his will. I had no assistance 
from any one towards her subsistance when she was grown weak, but what 
my own hands did administer to our reliefs and 1 bless [and] Glorifi god 
we did not want for anything. I expected to have had a letter from 
yo" before this time and would have come to yo" in this ship : but I have 
been ver}' sickly this Long time soe that I wanted nessesaries for the jorney. 
I have a great desire to come over if I can get things ready for the next 
opertunity which I suppose will be about August next and if yo" will pay 
for my passage I doe not dougt but in a short time to repay yo" againe, but 
however I desire yo" not to faile to send me a letter by the first opertunity. 
James Lewis do be much wonder that yo" should be soe negligent in not 
writing to yo""" relations. James Lewis son-in-law was willing to pay for my 
passage this, but I was not prepared for the jorney at this time ; as for my 


uncle John and his wife they are dead these severall years and my aunt 
Maud is Hkewise dead : and as for my unkell PLynon he was a man of war, 
and went to the wars some yeaer agoe to fight against the french and we 
neaver heard of him more, pray remember my kinde love to John Lewis 
that came from castlebith, and to my cozen Mary Lewis and tell her that 
she was not as good [as] her word for she promised to send me a letter as 
soon as an opprtunity did present but I neaver had a word from her. My 
sisters are well and remember their kinde Loves unto yo" and you^ wife and 
children and 1 understand that Mary Lewis is maryed I wish her much Joy 
and hapiness and prosperity. Soe with my kinde love unto yo" and my 
sister-in-law and my cozens yo"'' children unknown with my prayer to god 
for yo"'' health and prosperity is all at present from yo'"" 

Ever loveing sister till death 

Jane Walker. 

HoNNEST Friend 

I shall desire yo" if yo""" sister comes to Pennsylvania to be kinde to 
her for she have been kinde to yo""^ mother and did her part very well for 
her during her Life and buried her very decent [word illegible] and bestowed 
a Coffin on her to Lay her body in which is more than I did expect she 
would or could have done.* My cozen Daniell Philpin is well and remem- 
bers his love unto yo". I. desire yo" to be kinde to yo""" sister when she 
comes to yo" and in soe doing yo" will oblige yo""" friend 

Isaac Phillpin. 

Isaac Phillpin's letter appears as a postscript to that of Jane 
Walker. There is another letter from Jane Walker, a copy of 
which will be inserted later. 

The old Radnor records have several certificates of member- 
ship from Redstone Meeting. Ellis Pugh and David Rees both 
brought certificates of membership from there. In an old jour- 
nal of a traveling preacher, whose name I neglected to record, I 

* It was against the principles of the Quakers at this time to bury their dead in 
coffins; a winding sheet sufficed them, and did not retard decomposition, which was 
the reason for its adoption. It is supposed that Jane Walker was not a Friend, and for 
that reason pro%'ided a coffin. 


have read that he went "to Pembrokeshire, and came to James 
Lewis's house, not far from Redstone, and next day went to 
Haverfordwest." In " Besse's Sufferings " occurs the following : 
" Pembrokeshire, i66i, James Lewis is imprisoned for attending 
a meeting [of Quakers]. 167 1, Henry Lewis of Redstone fined 
25 sh. Corn was seized from Henry Lewis by a priest of Nar- 
berth." He is also called " Henry Lewis of Narberth." Evan 
Protherah, of Narberth, 1670, has goods worth £?,, losh. taken 
from him for tithes. (An Evan Prothera was present at Lewis 
Walker's wedding in 1693. See page 16). Hugh Roberts, a 
preacher, went to Wales, into Pembrokeshire, " to Rediston, and 
had a very precious meeting, thence to Haverfordwest ; return- 
ing stopped at Redstone again, and had a very good meeting at 
James Lewis's house." Adding these facts to the evidence con- 
tained in Jane Walker's letter, I think we may decide that Lewis 
Walker came to Pennsylvania from Pembrokeshire ; and I am 
inclined to believe that he was one of those who came with 
Rowland Ellis, Eighth month (October) 6th, 1686, from Milford 
Haven, Pembrokeshire. Being a native of Redstone, he would 
be likely to depart, along with his neighbors, from the nearest 
port, which was Milford Haven, a very short distance from that 
place. Rowland EUis took passage, along with about a hundred 
of his neighbors, on a Bristol ship, bound for Pennsylvania, by 
the southern route. It was winter, and the passage was a very 
long one. Many of them died from hunger while at sea, and 
others soon after their arrival, from the effects of the privations 
which they had endured. The vessel touched at Barbadoes, 
where they remained six weeks and recuperated somewhat. 
They arrived in Pennsylvania at the beginning of 1687. The 
tradition in the family that Lewis Walker and Mary Morris, 
whom he afterwards married, left Wales in 1686, and arrived in 
Pennsylvania in 1687, "after a tedious passage of thirteen 


months " (which last statement I have long doubted), makes it 
seem very possible that they were among the passengers of this 
ship. Lewis Walker was a young man, and a bachelor ; and he 
first met the English girl, who afterwards became his wife and 
the mother of our race, on the ship that carried them across the 

Ctjaptrr Scronti, 


WHILST visiting England in the summer of 1894, we went 
into South Wales for the purpose of hunting up Redstone. 
At that time we had not located it ; we only knew that it was in 
Pembrokeshire. When we left London we felt that we were 
going into a wilderness ; we had been warned of the poor accom- 
modations we should find there, of the uncertainty of railway 
travel, etc., till we fancied that we were doing an unheard-of 
thing. For this reason we went direct to Tenby, a watering- 
place mentioned in the guide books as one of the pleasantest on 
the British coast. We afterwards found that there were small inns 
in all the numerous towns of this part of Wales, at most of which 
we undoubtedly could have been comfortable for a few days. 
However, we did not regret having chosen Tenby ; we found it 
a charming old town, with mediaeval walls and towers, and 
beautiful views of Carmarthen Bay. From this little town we 
made excursions all around the countr^^ which we found inter- 
esting and beautiful. Yet we could find no trace of Redstone, 
though we inquired at post offices and consulted local directories. 
We had given it up, when one day returning from the inspection 
of the ruined castle of Manorbeer, we stopped to get a cup of 
tea at the station where we took the train for Tenby. While 
eating her delicious bread and butter we asked the woman if she 
knew of a place called Redstone. " Yes," she said, '' it must be 
near Narberth ; it is the only Redstone I know." Consulting a 
road map of the region about Tenby, we found the place where 


she had located it. Afterwards, in a gazetteer of Great Britain, 
we found it described as a " hamlet near Narberth, Pembroke- 
shire, Wales." The next day we went to Narberth, a market 
town, ten or twelve miles from Tenby, which we found a most 
quaint old village, built of gray stone, with a ruined Norman 
castle dominating the hill-side. Its winding streets go up and 
down the hills, with narrow sidewalks and rough stony foot-ways. 
There is also an old church, whose characteristic high square 
tower is seen from afar. The houses are small and picturesque ; 
I doubt if there has been a new one built this century. Follow- 
ing the directions given, we took the road leading north out into 
the country. Passing by several old mansions, shaded by trees 
and hidden by hedges from the too inquisitive gaze of the foot- 
passenger, we soon came to where the road terminated at its 
junction with the main road that leads to Haverfordwest. 
Directly in front of us was a farm house, and at the corner on 
our left was a pretty little rose-embowered cottage. But where 
was Redstone ? No one was in sight to whom we could apply for 
information. It was pouring rain ; the cottage was near and very 
inviting, and so we decided to ask our way there. The young 
woman who came to the door in answer to our knock, told us 
that we were in Redstone ; that the cottage was Redstone cottage, 
and the other building was Redstone farm. I took from my 
pocket a copy of the old letter written in 171 5, and commenced 
a series of questions which so bewildered her, that it is possible 
our respectable and sane appearance, only, saved us from being 
considered lunatics. Fortunately her father came to the rescue, 
and invited us into the house. We gladly accepted the invitation, 
closed our dripping umbrellas and took the offered chairs by the 
open fire in the pretty, cheery room. They had recently come 
into the neighborhood, but they took an interest in our search, 
and put us in the way of getting information, — the old gentleman 


accompanying us without an umbrella in all the downpour. We 
learned that there had been a Quaker meeting-house close by, 
and a graveyard, though no trace of either now remains. Not a 
hillock marks the place of sepulture, or distinguishes it from the 
adjoining pasture land. There is another Friends' burying- 
ground a few miles away, but there are no Quakers left in this 
part of Pembrokeshire. A Welshman, called " Old Tom," who 
was born and bred on the spot, showed us where the meeting- 
house had been. At Narberth we hunted up the owner of Red- 
stone, a Mr. Roblin, currier, who looked to be about seventy years 
old. He told us that his father had bought Redstone in 1820, 
it being part of a large estate. The farm comprised thirty acres 
of land. The cottage, we were told, was built about one hun- 
dred and fifty years ago, but the farm house was older, quite two 
hundred years. It had always been known as Redstone. 

On further inquiry we learned that the names mentioned in 
Jane Walker's letter were all familiar ones in the vicinity ; and 
we were told also that there was a nice piece of property waiting 
for a missing heir of the Protherah family, which would be in- 
herited by a cousin, if he were not soon found. 

The name of Walker was unknown, but there were several 
families in Pembrokeshire named Eynon, one of which had a 
clock and watch store in Narberth. We think that Lewis 
Walker's mother was an Eynon, because his sister Jane writes of 
an " unkell Eynon " who went to fight against the French. The 
Lewis family, which was also connected, as will be seen by refer- 
ring to the same letter, has disappeared from the neighborhood. 
Walker, we know, is not a Welsh, but an English name ; and I 
believe that we are the only Quaker Walkers in this country. 
Referring to " Besse's Sufferings " once more, I find that there 
were several of this name in Yorkshire, in 1660 and 1664, who 
suffered imprisonment for attending meetings at Sedburgh, and 


for refusing the oath. I think that Lewis Walker's father might 
have gone from Yorkshire into Wales, there married and died. 
I have read that Quakerism was introduced into Wales from 
Yorkshire. But all this may be foreign to the subject, as we do 
not even know that he was a Quaker; his son, Lewis, was one, 
because he was married according to the ceremony of Friends at 
Haverford Meeting, and he was a prominent and valuable mem- 
ber of the Society ; but when he joined it \vc do not know. 
That he lived in this part of Wales is certain, and that he was 
more English than Welsh seems clear. He did n<jt use the 
Welsh language, and he was very tall, — his height being given 
as six feet and four inches ; while the Welsh are usually a short, 
thick-set people, and carry these characteristics down through 
many generations. 

However, this part of Wales is more English than Celtic, and 
is called " Little England beyond Wales," being mainly peopled 
by the descendants of a colony of Flemings, who were brought 
here by Henry L, in 1 107, to help civilize the Welsh, by arts of 
peace. They differ from the Welsh in language and character. 
This part of the country is mostly agricultural ; its undulating 
surface strongly reminded us of Eastern Pennsylvania. The 
small cottages are picturesquely located. They are so old that 
they seem a part of the soil, like the rocks, and are whitewashed 
from the foundation stone to the chimney top. The numerous 
small towns and villages are clustered about an old church, 
whose tall, square tower has been a landmark for centuries to 
the wayfaring man. The turbulency of the unconquered Celt 
occasioned the necessity of many strongholds, or fortified castles, 
whose ruins are now a source of income to the proprietors by 
attracting many curious visitors to see these crumbling relics of 
another time. The Eastern Pennsylvanian will constantly see in 
Pembrokeshire the names of people and places as familiar to him 


as his own, and it will be interesting to trace the differences that 
climate and government have made between him and his Welsh 
relations. As we stepped from the streets into the smooth paths 
that led along hedgerows, far out into the fields of the country, 
on our long walks of exploration, we felt the blood of our fore- 
fathers leap in our veins. We walked where they had walked, 
and gazed on the enchanting scenery on which their eyes had 
rested. We felt that we were truly visiting our old home. We 
doubt not their memories often returned with homesick longings 
to these very spots while meditating in the quiet of Haverford, 
Radnor, or Valley meeting-houses on a First-day morning. 

C|}aplrr Eljirti. 


LEWIS WALKER on arriving in Pennsylvania went to Rad- 
nor, where he bought 300 acres of land of David Evans, and 
rented 200 acres more. Radnor was one of the earliest settlements 
of Pennsylvania, forming a part of the Welsh tract. In Proud's 
" History of Pennsylvania," we read : " Among the adventurers 
and settlers who arrived about this time, were many from Wales, 
mostly Quakers. They had early purchased of the Proprietary 
in England 40,000 acres of land on the west side of the Schuyl- 
kill River, which included Merion, Haverford, and Radnor." 
This was the Welsh tract, and " was given them that they might 
preserve their language, and settle their difficulties in their own 
tongue and with their own juries and magistrates, 'being 
descended from the antient Britains,' and that they might not 
entangle themselves with laws in an unknown tongue." As 
early as 1690, there was a community of thirty families at Rad- 
nor, mostly Quakers. Here Lewis Walker settled, and Second 
month (April) 2 2d, 1693, he was married at Haverford Meeting- 
house to Mary Morris. The Radnor Meeting Book of Marriage 
has recorded, " Lewis Walker of Merion, batchelor, and Mary 
Morris, spinster, married 2nd Mo. 22nd, 1693, at Haverford 
Meeting House. Witnesses : — William P'lower, Francis and 
William Howell, Morris and William Llewellin, and 38 others." 
I insert the copy of the original marriage certificate, thinking 
the offspring of this marriage will be interested to see what a 

goodly show of people attended the wedding of their ancestors. 




" Haverford, the 22nd day of ye 2nd Month 1693. Whereas Lewis 
Waker of the County of Philadelphia late of the township of Marion, 
Batchelor, And Mary Morris of ye same, Spinster, have declared their In-

Lewis Walker took his bride to their Radnor home, ^vhere 
they Hved several years, and where most of their children were 
born. I cannot locate it myself; but the following, which I 
think formed part of the Radnor property, may assist any one 


who desires to hunt it up. It is described as being " part in 
Radnor, part in Marion and rioshcn." 

"The Proprietary by Deeds of Lease and Release bearing date 14 
and 15 of 7br [September], 1681, Sold to Richard Davies 5000 Acres. Of 
this was disposed of in England, Rowland Ellis 1 100 acres. The rest was 
sold to John Roberts, Rich. Humphrey, David Evan, Ellis Pugh and 
others, James Price, Jno. Evans, Edw'd David, Ed. Jones, Ellis Jones, 
Roger Hugh, David Meredith, R. Cook, J. Lloyd, D. Jones, M. James, R. 
Miles, T. Jones, Evan Oliver, \Vm. Davies, &c. 

"By deeds now possessed by said Wm. Davies — 

" Wm. Davies, Edward David, David Kinsey, 100 (acres). 

" By Deeds the Exec' tors of the said David sold it to 

James James and he to Lewis Walker who possesses it" [1691 or '92]. 
(Pennsylvania Archives, 3rd Series, Vol. 1. p. 15.) 

Lewis Walker was not content with his Radnor property ; in 
his wanderings and hunting trips (he is said to have been fond 
of the chase) he had seen land more to his liking. Beyond the 
densely wooded hill was a pleasant valley, w-ell watered and fer- 
tile, waiting the hand of the farmer to produce abundant harvests. 
A river lay beyond, ready to float the products of the farm to 
the waiting markets of the city so rapidly growing at its mouth. 
His prophetic eye saw the advantages of the place for a home, 
and in the language of a local poet, 

" He bought the land from hill to hill, 
And his children's children live there still." 

From a point on the South Valley Hill, we may stand to-day 
where he is said to have stood, and see the same stretch of 
country that excited the admiration of our ancestor, impelling 
him to break up his settled home and start afresh as a pioneer, 
beyond the forest, seven miles away. This is said to have been 
a great trial to his wife, who had felt happy and safe at Radnor ; 
the peril of the unknown was upon her, and her imagination 


peopled the country with bears, and savage Indians. At last 
her fears were overcome, and early in the century we find them 
in their new home in the Chester Valley. I have not been able 
to get the exact date at which they moved ; but Futhey and Cope, 
in their " History of Chester County," name Lewis Walker as 
the first settler of Tredyffrin township, in 1705. To quote fur- 
ther from the same work, " Tredyffrin Township is situated in 
the Great Valley in the most easterly part of the county. It is 
part of a large tract which was surveyed for the Welsh, and was 
principally taken up and settled by them. The name is Welsh, 
and signifies valley town, or township. Tre, or tref, town ; 
Dyffrin, a wide cultivated valley ; hence the compound ' Tredyf- 
frin, the town or township in a wide cultivated valley.' The 
township is sometimes called Valleytown or Valleyton in old 
writings — an evident effort to anglicise the name. In a deed of 
conveyance from Lewis Walker to Llewellyn David, in 1708, 
the grantor is recited as ' of the township of Valleyton in the 
county of Chester.' In the assessment of taxes in the year 
1722, the name is spelled Tre yr Dyffiyn. The date of the 
organization of the township is not certainly known, but it was 
prior to the year 1707, as in that year Thomas David repre- 
sented the township as constable." 

The section first occupied and cultivated as a homestead 
comprised the farms now owned by Joseph and Mathias Walker ; 
but in a short time he owned all the land extending west from 
the Montgomery County line as far as what is now called the 
Baptist Road. The Swedesford and the Back roads marked the 
north and south limits of this tract. But he had other property 
in the neighborhood ; and, before he died, must have been 
possessed of nearly 1 000 acres in Tredyffrin township. Although 
it had been held in other names — having been taken up for spec- 
ulation — it was still virgin soil. Some of it was purchased from 



John Kinscy, who held a large section of the country in his 
name.* (See Appendix A.) 

Lewis Walker, after the English manner, gave a name to his 1 
new home, and for many years it was known as " Rchobeth." 
It is a singular coincidence that the first New England Walkers 
were settled in Rehobcth, Massachusetts. One of the (jIcI 
" Family Chronicles," written years ago by Marian Walker 
Meares, of Philadelphia, says : " Moving seven miles further into 
the wilderness he set up his home by one of the most beautiful 
springs of that fertile spot, which he called ' Rchobeth.' This 
spring now, as then, throws up its sparkling waters, and his

Fortunately the early settlers of Pennsylvania were never 
reduced to the straits of the Pilgrims and Puritans of bleak New 
England. There were deer, turkeys and pigeons in the woods, 
shad and other kinds of fish in the rivers, and many kinds of fruit 
growing wild around them.* 

The house which Lewis Walker built at " Rehobeth," was 
situated on a sunny slope, shaded by walnut and sycamore trees, 
and is supposed to have been built of stone which was dug 
from a quarry near at hand, the same " old quarr\'," grass-grown 
and cedar-crowned, that now forms a picturesque background to 
the buildings. As has been remarked before, a part of this old 
house is still standing, and comprises a part of the eastern end of 
the present structure. This house was a large building for the 
times ; it was suf^ciently large for a meeting to be held in it for 
many years. One of the lower rooms was separated by a mov- 
able partition into two, for the use of the business meetings of 
the Society of Friends, as we see them in the meeting-houses of 
the present day. We know that in 171 3 "Stephen Bevans and 
Lewis Walker have requested to have a meeting sometimes at 
the house of Lewis Walker. This meeting do condescend that 
Friends may keep a meeting at Lewis W^alker's the first day of 
the week in the Sixth and Eighth months next." (Radnor 

I read in some old history of Friends, that in 17 14, the 
" Friends inhabiting Perquaming (Perkiomen) and this side of 
Schuylkill in ye Valley being desirous yt a meeting be allowed

ym every other mo. to be and hc<^\n att Lewis Walker'.s house 
the first in 2d mo. next, and thence every other month at Joseph 
Richardson's house until ye 9th mo. next." These mectinjjs 
were continued at Lewis Walker's house until 173 i, when tliey 
were transferred to the new meeting-house on the hill. In an 
old Quaker Journal, before mentioned, the preacher writes : 
" 1st mo. 14th, 1722. At Lewis Walker's in tlie Great Valley, 
where we had a large meeting out of doors, with many other pro- 
fessors. All were attentive and the Gospel Power and testimony 
went freely forth." Li 17 18, "Joseph Thomas and Jemima 
David were married at Lewis Walker's house." 

About 1728, the Haverford Monthly Meeting appointed a 
committee to aid the Valley Friends in fixing a site for a 
meeting-house. It left them at liberty to build the said house 
" at the grave-yard near Lewis Walker's, deceased, which was 
left by the said Lewis by his last Will for that purpose." 

But in these intervening years much had been accomplished. 
When they first went to " Rehobeth," there was no communi- 
cation with the outside world except by trails ; roads had been 
laid out, lands cleared, barns built, orchards set out ; and thus 
with sowing and reaping, and bu)-ing and selling, the years flew 
by, until the 23d of December, 1728, when Lewis Walker's 
busy and useful life came to an end. He was buried in the 
grave -yard on the hill, on his own land, which he had bequeathed 
in his Will to the " use of the Friends forever." It was formerly 
one of the particular tenets of the Friends that marble or stone 
should not distinguish the graves of their dead, and for this rea- 
son it is not positively known which of the numerous graves in 
this old yard belongs to him ; but there are two mounds, notice- 
able for their length, which have always been pointed out as 
belonging, one to Lewis Walker and the other to his serving 
man, but which is which it is impossible to determine. 


The following is taken from The Friend, Vol. XXIX., p. 268, 
published at Philadelphia, Fifth month 3d, 1856, and entitled: 
" Biographical Sketches of Ministers and Elders, and other 
concerned members of the Yearly Meeting of Philadelphia." 

"This Friend, who is spoken of as a 'worthy elder,' belonged to 
Haverford Monthly Meeting, but his farm was in the Valley. ' He had a 
meeting at his house for several years, and was instrumental in settling a 
meeting there. He gave a lot of ground to the use of Friends of that meet- 
ing where the Meeting-house is built. He lived in love and unity with his 
friends.' He died on the 23rd of the Tenth Month, 1728, and was buried 
at Friends' burying ground in the Valley."

T INSERT the following old papers, which are interesting as 
illustrating the colonial farm-life of the day, as well as having a 
genealogical value. For years they lay undisturbed in a neat 
little walnut desk, that was brought into the family by Sarah 
Thomas, whose initials it bore. She married Joseph Walker, 
a grandson of Lewis Walker ; the box with its contents came 
into the possession of Zillah Kendall, a granddaughter of 
Joseph Walker, and is now owned by her son, William W. 
Kendall, of Philadelphia. 

The oldest paper was a receipt for money received by Griffith 
Miles from Lewis Walker, dated 1695. 

1700. " This bill bindeth me Lewis Walker of the Township of Rad- 
nor, County of Chester within the Province of Pennsylvania, Planter, to 
pay unto Evan Prothero of the same Township, County and Province, or 
to his certayn Attorney, his Executors, Administrators or Assignees the 
sum of Twelve Pounds and Twelve shillings current silver money of the 
said Province at or upon the First day of the Sixth Month next after the 
date hereof to which payment well and truly to be made I bind myself,

agreement between Lewis Walker of Whiteland in the County of Chester, 
and Province of Pennsylvania, yeoman, and John Evans of North Wales 
in the County of Philadelphia, yeoman, of the other part, and is as follow- 
eth. First it is to be remembered that Lewis Walker have bargained and 
sold unto the said John Evans an Hundred Acres of Land in Whiteland 
beginning at a black oak marked thence west south west by the line of

It was also concluded upon by the said parties that if there be any

It had been a question in the family as to what had become 
of the sister, Jane Walker, who had written the letter from 
" Redstone." Some thought that she had come to Pennsylvania, 
as was her evident intention ; while a more romantic maiden 
fancied that she had married Isaac Phillpin, who had seemed 
interested in her. This uncertainty was cleared up, fortunately, 
by another old letter, recently discovered, poorly written on 
coarse paper, folded square and sealed.

AlthoLig-li we reizret that \vc have not more letters of this kind 
to insert, as they would have been a great assistance in our 
genealogical research ; yet we should not blame Lewis Walker too 
much for his seeming neglect of his people in the old country. 
We should remember that the postal facilities were not such as 
they are now. Letters had to be carried to and fro by private 


individuals, and " Rehobeth " was far inland, a day's journey 
from Philadelphia. Many came from Wales, but few returned ; 
so that his opportunities for sending letters were less than hers.

In 17 1 2 Thomas Waters and Lewis Walker could not agree 
concerning the boundary line of certain lands. Instead of going 
to law about it. arbitrators were chosen, as was the custom among 
Friends at that time, who decided that Lewis Walker should 
give up his claim, and that Thomas Waters should pay him at 
two different times the sum of ^^3 i is. 6d. 

On the 26th of May, 17 19, " Hugh William, John Jones, John 
Morgan, Lewis Rees, Lewis Lewis, and Morgan Jones laid out a 
road beginning at the grave yard near Lewis Walker's to the High 
Road." This road w'ent through the lands of James Davids, Morris 
Davids and Thomas Simmons " to the High Road at INIargaret 
Samuel's." The road over the hill to Radnor, and that to 
Swedesford on the Schuylkill, were laid out in 17 13. There 
seems to have been some trouble in locating these roads, judging 
from the petitions found in the little desk. There were some 
who wanted the Swedesford road higher up on the hill than 
it now is. 



When Lewis Walker died he had been forty-two years in 
America, and more than half of this time he had iixcd in 
Tredyffrin ; he had come to it a wilderness, and had left it a 
flourishing settlement. His eight children were grown up, and 
nearly all of them married and settled on farms near him. His 
widow continued to live at " Rehobeth " until her death. Her 
will was probated on the 19th day of March, 1747. She was 
buried by the side of her husband. We have no knowledge of 
her family. If she came to Pennsylvania with her parents or 
relations they must have died, or had a different surname, as no 
one of the name of Morris signed her marriage certificate, 
excepting a Morris Llewellyn. It was customary at that time for 
the children of Welsh parents to take the first name of their 
father for their last name, and this might have been the case with 
Mary Morris. It is recorded that she was eighty years old at 
the time of her death ; therefore she must have been born in the 
year 1667. The youngest son, Isaac, lived with the mother and 
cultivated the farm. The terms of their contract are shown in 
the following indenture : 

This Indenture made the 20th day of Aug. 1736 being the 9th year of

NO. 2. Daniel W.\lker- (Lewis ^), born at Radnor, Penna., 
2d mo. 26th, 1694, died at Tredyffrin Township, Chester 
County, Penna., in 1772, married Lydia Barnard, daughter of 
Richard Barnard, who came from Sheffield, England, in the year 
1682, and settled in Middletown, Delaware County, Penna. (See 
Smith's " History of Delaware County.") Daniel Walker took 
his bride to a farm given him by his father, in the Deed of which 
he is called " Heir apparent of Lewis and Mary Walker." 
(This farm is now owned by David Abraham.) Here he resided 
for many years, until his death. The old house, in a good state 
of preservation, is still standing. Daniel Walker was but 
twenty-one years old when he married. His name appears as a 
resident land-owner in the assessment of 1722 ; also in the list 
of Constables serving between 1707 and 1753, in the list of 
Supervisors of Roads from 1725 to 1753, and in the list of 
taxables for 1753. His will is recorded at Philadelphia, in 
which he leaves all his real estate to his wife ; to his children 
Rebecca, Daniel, and Zillah, £10 each ; to his son Jacob his 
writing-desk ; to Beulah Richards, his daughter, his one-horse 
chaise and harness when her mother is done with it. All the 
property after the mother's death goes to the children. His 
wife's will is also recorded at Philadelphia. She died in the year 
1 774 ; she calls herself " of Coventry Township, Chester County," 
and was evidently living there at the time with her son-in-law, 
James Thomas, whom she mentions in her will. She leaves a 
legacy of ten pounds to the Friends' Meeting-house in the Valley. 




After the death of his mother, Daniel Walker entered a claim 
to certain lands and rij^hts in the estate, which were resisted by 
the family of his brother Isaac. To show how these family dis- 
agreements were adjusted in those days, as well as to give the 
names of certain residents of that part of Chester Valley, I in- 
sert copies of the papers relating thereto. 

We whose names are underwritten, being neighbors of yc unhappy 
persons whose decision depends upon your determination, ye which judge- 
ment we dont doubt will be according to equity and Impartiality (if properly 
informed) intending no offense or impartiality to any person immediately 
concerned or you who is called to their assistance, to lay down our opinion 
and that which we frequently and generally hear of others of our neighbors 
when discussing about ye affair yt [illegible] or intend to reserve part of 
that land called Kethins* for wood to support ye plantation which he lived 
on (which is known to us to be scarce without it) and as to Daniel's selling 
part of it to pay Debts due on the estate wc say nothing by reason of ye 
equity of it is not plain to us. 

But it appears to us if Daniel is made possessor of what he now by 
report lays claim to, Viz, having an hereditary right to part of all ye land 
left to Mary Walker it will by all appear and reduce Isaac Walker's widow 
and her five small children to a narrow livelihood if not to the charity of 
meeting or other good Christians. We have had dealings with Isaac 
Walker and some with his son after him, we have ever found them just and 
generous therein and not critical in their accounts, ^^"e therefore desire 
you to consider ye widow and ye fatherless and to show mercy if it were in 
the midst of judgment.

To Mr. Isaac Norrice & Consorts, &c. .ic. 

At the request of Joseph Walker, son of Isaac, these may inform you, 
the arbitrators on that case depending between Daniel Walker and the said 
Joseph Walker concerning that piece of land in dispute, I have not much 
to say, in respect of the Property [of that land] for this reason. When 
Mary Walker the testator was on that paragraph bequeathing that tract of 
land and Plantation to her son Isaac, &c. where she then lived, I asked 
what quantity it might be ; her answer was as it is expressed in her will, 
Two hundred and two Acres more or less, and whether she thought the 
words " more or less " in the meaning might include the whole and by that 
no room for others to claim, I cannot say. I hope since the parties put 
their cause to referrence to men of understanding beyond my capacity they 
will judge and determine the Property according to Equity, and further 
touching the bill of charge drawn against the Estate, considering the Pay- 
ment of the several Legacies and other former debts contracted on that 
Estate in my opinion that bill ought not to be allowed in manner and form. 

Thomas Thomas. 
Radnor, jth Mo. nth Day, 1736. 

It is evident from the above that Thomas Thomas wrote the 
will of Mary Walker. The following throws additional light on 
the subject : 

Whereas Daniel Walker lays claim to a certain piece of land in the 
actual possession of Joseph and Sarah Walker which was absolutely ye 
estate of the late Mary Walker, Dec'd. left to her by Will of her husband 
Lewis Walker, Dec'd. whereas we have chosen Arbitrators to make a final 
end determination concerning this piece of land which the said Daniel 
pretends to have a right to. The Arbitrators are as foUoweth : Rowland 
Evans, Esq. of North Wales, and Thomas Jones of Blockley and John 
Smith and William Fishor of Philadelphia who are to inspect into the right 
of Daniel Walker in justice and equity and if any Right the[y] find, a 
value set thereon, and in case they cannot agree they have full power to 
choose an Umpire and give their award in writing thereto. 


I do not know the decision of the arbitrators, only that 
Daniel received ^22, i8.s. 5d. for his share of the disputed 

In the Pt'Jinsyivania Magazi)ic of Histojy and Biography, Vol. 
XVII., in article entitled, "The Old Iron Forge, Valley Forge," 
by H. M. Jenkins, we find that Daniel Walker was one of the 
original owners of the Valley Forge. It was first called Mount 
Joy Forge, and was built by a partnership composed of Stephen 
Evans, Daniel Walker, and Joseph Williams, between December, 
1742, and April, 175 1. It stood on the lower east side of 
Valley Creek, in what is now Montgomery County ; it was 
burned by the British in 1777. The Valley Forge property was 
originally part of the estate of Letitia Penn, a gift from her 
father, the founder. Wm. I^enn, his grandson, was fourth owner, 
who conveyed 175 acres of it to Stephen Evans and Daniel 
Walker, February ist, 1741— '42 (5th conveyance). They con- 
veyed it to Isaac Walker five days later, December i8th, 1742. 
Isaac Walker and Sarah, his wife, reconveyed the tract, with 
precisely the same metes and bounds and the same extended 
recitations of title, to Stephen Evans and Daniel Walker, from 
whom he had just received it, and Joseph Williams of Lower 
Merion, miller. 

In the Pennsylvania Gazette, April 4th, 1751, appears this 

advertisement : 

To be sold, the third part of Mount Joy Forge, situate in Upper Mer- 
ion on the River Schuylkill, by the great road leading from Philadelphia to 
the French Creek Iron Works, 20 miles from Philadelphia and not so far 
distant from three furnaces ; the said works are in good repair, with one 
third of the utensils to be sold also 1 20 acres of land belonging thereto ; 
for title and terms inquire of Daniel Walker living near the said premises. 

According to H. M. Jenkins, whose article on Valley Forge 
I have referred to and quoted, this property included the grounds 


on which Washington's Headquarters now stands, as well as " a 
considerable part of the encampment site." The high wooded 
hill on the other side of the Valley Creek was called Mount 
Misery. It is said that Wm. Penn himself gave the names to 
these two commanding eminences, to commemorate the occasion 
when he lost his way on Mount Misery, and after much wander- 
ing was found on Mount Joy. They are known by these names 
to the present day. 

Daniel and Lydia (Barnard) Walker had eight children : 
No. 10. I. Lewis ■■' Walker, born 171 6, probably died young.

father's house. Witnesses : Margaret, Adam, and Mary Ham- 
mer ; Lewis, Mary, Daniel, Lydia, Enoch, Abel, Isaac, and 
Hannah Walker, and others. 

John David, of Tredyffrin Township, in his will recorded in 
Philadelphia, Book C, page 296, leaves ^5, .silver money, and 
two ewes and lambs to P^lizabeth Walker, daughter of Lewis 
Walker, May 13th, 171 2. 

Pennsylvania Archives, Second Series, Vol. XIX., contains 
the following reference to the Hammer family : " 20th i ith Mo. 
171 3. James Hamer of the County of Philadelphia desiring to 
purchase 300 A. of land in the Manor of Gilberts next above 
that part of it where Jonas Potts is settled upon a lease granted 
him about the year 1708, agrees to pay ^75 for the same." 
" 17 1 7. Signed a Patent to James Hamer for 300 Acres in the 
Mannor of Gilberts above Parkeocoming, granted to his father for 
£2^ p. Ct. dated 5th mo. 20th, 1717." " 17 17-8. Signed a 
warrant to James Hammer for 200 A. at £10 p. Ct., dated 10th 
mo. 8th, 1717." 

James Hammer, Sr., in his will recorded at Philadelphia, 
bequeaths his property to his son James, and mentions his chil- 
dren Adam, Mary, Sarah, Deborah, and Margaret Hammer, 
while to his wife he leaves an annuity of los. and some furniture. 
Lewis Walker and Joseph Richardson are trustees. James 
Hammer, Jr., who married Elizabeth Walker, died in the year 
1748. His will is also recorded at Philadelphia. He calls him- 
self a native of Philadelphia, and mentions his sons James, 
Samuel, Abel and Lewis, and his daughters Margaret, Marj-, 
Elizabeth, and Hannah. James and Elizabeth (Walker) Hammer 
had eight children : 
No. 18. I. p:iizabeth ^ Hammer.

No. 4. Joseph Walker^ (Lewis ^) born at Radnor, Penna., 

1 2th mo. 27th, 1697, married Elizabeth Abraham, daughter of 

James Abraham, of Montgomery County, Penna. Very little is 

known of Joseph Walker. There is no record of any children 

born to them ; as ^Iar\- Walker left legacies to many, if not all 

of her grandchildren, and Joseph's children are not mentioned, 

it is probable that they had none. A little note to his father is 

in existence, which I insert here. 

Sept. ye 7th, 1725. 
Loving father 

I desire thee to pay unto Zachariah Thomas the bearer thereof, the just 
and full sum of nine shillings which is in full my discharge from him and 
in so doing thou wilt very much oblige thy son 

Joseph Walker. 

My kind love to thee and my mother. 

Second month iith, 1757, Joseph Walker and wife carried 
their certificate of membership from Radnor to Exeter Monthly 
Meeting. In the Abstract of Wills at the Historical Society, 
Philadelphia, I find a will of Joseph Walker, Douglass, County 
of Philadelphia, yeoman, signed October iith, 1763. "Wife 
Elizabeth, children Lewis, Martha, Macke}% Hannah Vander- 
slice, Lydia, sons-in-law Wm. ^lackey, John V^andersiice ; 


exec. Elizabeth Walker. Proved Jan. 23rcl, 1764." It may not 
be our Joseph, but the names are family names, and for that rea- 
son I insert it. 

No. 5. Hannah Walker ^ (Lewis ^) born at Radnor, Penna., 
9th mo. 15th, 1699, married Samuel P>ans, of Gwynedd, 
"Cooper," 4th mo. 15th, 1724, at a meeting of her father's 
house. The marriage was witnessed by Hugh and John Evans, 
Lewis, Mary, Daniel, Lydia, Joseph, Enoch, Abel, Isaac, Eliza- 
beth Walker, and 68 others. 

Samuel Evans was the son of Owen and Elizabeth Evans. 
A very interesting account of the l^vans family is given in 
" Historical Collections of Gwynedd," by Howard M. Jenkins. 
For the benefit of those who have not access to this bookT will 
give a few extracts. Owen ap Evan was one of four brothers 
who settled in Gwynedd in 1698. They were William. Thomas, 
Owen, and Cadwallader. Their father Evan ap P^van, of W'ales, 
was son of levan, or Evan Robert Lewis (born 1585), of Mer- 
ionethshire, Wales. They trace their descent back through 
many generations to Mervyn Vrych, king of Man, one of tlie 
Welsh Princes of the little island, who married Essylt, daughter 
and sole heiress of Conan Tyndaethwg, King of Wales, who 
died 818-20. Both Mervyn and Essylt were descended from 
Llud, King of Britain, brother of Caswallon, the chief who re- 
sisted Csesar and whom he calls Casscvallaunus. 

Samuel and Hannah (Walker) Evans had six children :

in.inicd April ::ist, 1727, Mary, daughter of Thomas and EHza- 
beth Jcinian. of Trcdyffrin Township, Chester County, Penna. 
Thomas Jerman is spoken of as " a noted Quaker preacher and 
thrifty miller," who settled early in Chester Valley. "March 
1st, 1697-8, an agreement was entered between Thomas Owen of 
the County Borough of Carmarthen and Mercer owner of the good 
ship ' William Galley,' Saml. Haines, master, riding in the River 
Towy, on the one part, and on the other between David Powell 
of the Parish of Nantmell, in the County of Radnor, and John 
Morris of the Parish of Karbadam fynyth in the same county to 
carry a number of persons to Philadelphia in Pennsylvania at a 
cost of £s each for all passengers above twelve years." 

It also provided for their goods and for their maintenance 
during the voyage. The vessel was to sail May loth, 1697-98, 
provided the wind was favorable. Among the subscribers was 
Thomas Jerman, who arranged for three passeng.ers. Thomas 
Jerman died 1740, his wife a year later. In his will he leaves 
300 acres of land to his daughter Mary Walker. A daughter 
Elizabeth married Captain Patrick Anderson, of Schuylkill 

Enoch and Maiy (Jerman) Walker were married at the house 
of Evan Jones. It was witnessed by Lewis, Mary and Daniel 
Walker, John, Mary, Thomas and Elizabeth Jerman. 

P2noch Walker's name is among those who served as con- 
stables in Tredyffrin Township from 1707 to 1753, as well as 
among the road supervisors, serving from 1725 to 1753. He 
lived, it is supposed, on the farm joining his brother Daniel's 
land on the east, as that tract of land was left him in his father's 
will. They had six children : 












No. 31. I. Margaret ^ Walker, born 1727, married, Evan 

Roberts, son of Evan of Radnor, 9th mo. 5th,

V. Sarah''' Walker, born 1739, married Randal Malin. 

VI. Elizabeth^ Walker, born 1745, married 

Ramsey, iith mo. 7th, 1761. 

No. 7. Abel Walker' (Lewis ') born 7th mo. 17th, 1703, 
married Sinah Pugh, born 1709, daughter of Ellis and Mary 
(Evans) Pugh, at a public meeting at Gwynedd, 4th month 13th, 
1727. Her mother, Mary Evans, was a daughter of Owen and 
Elizabeth Evans, of Gwynedd. (See No. 5.) She married 3d 
mo. 3d, 1708, Ellis Pugh, son of Ellis and Sinah Pugh, of 
Radnor. The Pughs, in the "Visitation of Wales," are cited as 
descending from one ap Hitgh ; some of them trace their descent 
through a long line of ancestors, which includes Jupiter and 
Noah, to "Adam, the first man that God created." Ellis Pugh, 
the grandfather of Abel Walker's wife, was born in the Parish of 
Dolgelly, Merionethshire, Wales, 6th mo., 1656. His father 
died before his birth, his mother a few days afterwards ; he was 
converted to Quakerism in 1674, when he was eighteen years 
old, by the preaching of John ap John, commenced preaching in 
1680, and came to Pennsylvania with his wife Sinah and some 
children in 1687. They brought their certificate of membership, 
dated 1686, from Redstone Monthly Meeting, Pembrokeshire, 
Wales, to Radnor Monthly Meeting. It is recorded in the Penn- 
sylvania Archives that Ellis ap Hugh took up 182 acres of 
land in the Welsh Tract, July i6th, 1886. He made a visit to 


Great Britain in 1706, returning in 1708. There is a short bio- 
graphical sketch of liim in " Piety Promoted," Vol. II. He died 
1718. He is spoken of in the old records as " a very .serviceable 
person and of exalted character." 

Abstract of the will of Plllis Pugh : " Ellis Pugh of Phila- 
delphia, mason, sons, Thomas, Job and Ellis, son-in-law Ellis 
Roberts, granddaughters Katherine and Mary Meredith, Sinah 
Pugh, grandson Ellis Pugh, daughter Ellen Davis. Wife's 
name not given. Son Job, executor. Overseers, son-in-law, 
Meredith Davids, David IMeredith, John Moore, Robert Jones.

Robert Jones. Signed, November 29th, 17 18. Proved March 
1 6th, 1 7 18-9. Recorded at Philadelphia, Book D, p. 116." 

Ellis and Sinah Pugh had children — Ellis, who married Mary 
Evans; Thomas, married Jane Roger (See No. 106); PZllen, 
married Meredith Davis or Davids ; Job, born at Radnor, 1693, 
married 7th mo. i6th, 1731, Phcebe Evans, of Radnor, widow, 
at Plymouth Meeting-house, [his will, dated 1757, " of Nor- 
riton, yeoman," mentions brothers Ellis and Thomas, sister 
Elizabeth, stepchildren Evans, granddaughter Sinah Pugh. 
Executors, Hananiah and Michael Pugh,] and Abraham Pugh, 
born at Radnor, 1695, who probably died young.* 

Ellis Pugh, 2d, died before his wife, and she married, second, 
William Roberts, son of Edward, of Merion, 9th mo. 13th, 
1736. She survived her second husband also, and passed the 
last years of her life with her daughter, Sinah Walker. Her 

* There was a James Pugh recorded as one of the earh- settlers of Uwchlan. He 
married Joan Price " at John Jarmans house, Radnor," 1692. Two sons were born — 
David, 1694. and James, 1695. He moved to Chester County in 1714. I think this 
family settled Pughtown, Chester County. Jonathan Pugh, born 1734, flied 1798, lived 
and died there. His grandson, Joseph T. Pugh, of New Brighton, Beaver County, Pa., 
born 1st mo. 6th, 1809. writes that he is the earliest ancestor of whom he has any knowl- 




will was made 1748, and proved in August of the same year. 
In it are mentioned her grandsons P'llis and Elijah Pugh, her 
granddaughter Mary Pugh, her only daughter Sinah Walker, 
the daughters of her son, Ellis Roberts, her brothers John, Cad- 
walader, and Thomas. 

Abel and Sinah Walker lived for some years in Chester Val- 
ley, on the farm bequeathed him by his father, and here all his 
children were born. He sold this place, and 5th mo. 14th, 1747, 
is the date of the removal of the certificate of himself, his wife 
and children from Radnor Monthly Meeting to Hopewell, Va. 
His aged mother-in-law accompanied them. It is written that 
"she was a wt)rth}- Friend, being so mindful of her latter end 
that she prepared and took with her her last wrapping linen." 

They settled at trailing Waters, in the Shenandoah Valley, 
not far from Martinsburg. They, with many of their descen- 
dants, were members of Hopewell Monthly Meeting. The 
descendants of Abel Walker are more widely scattered than any 
other branch of the family. Many of them ha\'e attained emi- 
nence and all are worthy citizens. The old Virginia homestead 
is, I believe, still standing, and in possession of a member of the

Jones, Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, Penna., 9th mo. 
I ith, 1730.* Edward Jerman, one of the early settlers, died 
7th mo. loth, 1714. He is mentioned in Trent's Ledger, a 
Philadelphia business directory of 1 703 (American Historical 
Register, Vol. I.). He had three children, — Mary, born 7th mo. 
3d, 1702, married Samuel Austin, 4th mo. 23d, 1723, died 
early; t^dward, born loth mo. 28th, 1704, died 9th mo. 8th,

ship with the Society of Friends, brought from Philadelphia to 
Haverford Monthly Meeting in 1730 :

Isaac Walker took his seventeen-year-old bride to the home- 
stead, " Rehobeth," where they lived with his mother until her 
death, when he inherited it, along with the one hundred acres left 
him by his father. He thus came into possession of all that 
tract of land bound by the four roads, which now comprises the 
three farms of Joseph, Mathias and William H. Walker. A 
handsome inlaid walnut chest, marked with her initials, which 
Sarah Jerman brought to the house to which she came as a 
bride, is still there, a valued heirloom of her great-great-grandson, 
Joseph Walker. Isaac Walker's name is among the list of road 
supervisors from 1725 to 1 75 3, as well as in the list of taxables 
of 1753. He died intestate 2d mo. 23d, 1755. I have seen a 


piece of writing, the commencement of his will, but he had got 
no further than " I commit my soul to God, and my body to be 
decently buried." Dying- without making a will his eldest son 
Joseph was administrator, and many curious bills and papers were 
thus preserved to us, which aid us in our genealogical research, 
as well as enlightening us in the customs of the times.

The next paper I copy is somewhat obscure ; I do not think 
Isaac Walker ever kept a tavern, yet here is a hcense to sell 
beer and cider. They might have been sold as farm products. 
The apples and cider of " Rehobeth " have always been famous, 
and in those days beer was brewed in every well regulated house- 
hold. Even Wm. Penn hoped to rival the French in wines made 
in his province. 

1738. Isaac Walker is allowed to sell Beer and Syder by small 
measure at Tredyffrin in the house where he now dwells until Au'^ust 



Court next, he giving security and observing all the laws and ordinances 
made or to be made relating thereto. 

There is a very long shoe bill from which I make some 
extracts, to show the value of shoes in 1752. The boys' shoes 
cost 7s. 6d. pair. Rachel's (a four-year-old daughter) 3s. 6d., 
for soling a pair of pumps 2s. 6d., and for " ye wife's shoes " 6s. 
There are in all about three dozen pairs of shoes and pumps 
covering a period of nearly three years, besides a great deal of 
patching and soling. There are shoes for " both Sallies," for 
"Bettie," Ben and Esther Racket, Mol Murphy and "Joe's 
wife and child." The shoemaker also supplied a raccoon hat for 
1 8s., three felt hats at 5s. apiece, and a quarter of veal for 2s. 
6d. Michael Willys was the shoemaker. 

I supplement the above by presenting a copy of a bill show- 
ing some of the household expenses of that period.

Another bill has among the items charged for, a spelling- 
book at I OS., an exorbitant price when we consider that its 
equivalent, $2.50, represented in those days five times its present 
value. No wonder spelling was a luxury. The new gowns 
were of calimanco and camblet, and 4s. is the price paid for the 
making of three short gowns. 

The funeral expenses of those days were much increased by 
the necessary entertainment of the guests. A family would have 
been severely criticised if it had neglected to bid the neighbors 
and kinsmen from far and near to assist at a burial, as well as to 
provide them with a good dinner afterwards. The following 
small bills will show us some of the details : 


Received of Joseph Walker the sum of 4s. for 12 lbs. of cheese at 4d. 
per lb. for his father's funeral. Ann Watkin.s. 

Received of Joseph Walker iis. lod. for sundries for his father's 
funeral. Thos. Maule. 

May ye 17th, 1755. Then received of Joseph Walker the sum of one 
pound, two shillings and six ])ence for sundries for his father's funeral. 

Benj. Davis.

Then received of Joseph Walker, Administrator to the estate of the 
late Isaac Walker, 'deed, the sum of £^, it being a just demand against 
the said estate for his father's coffin. Saml. Phillips. 

Received of Joseph Walker, Administrator to the Estate of the late 
Isaac Walker, the just and full sum of 2s. 4d. for half a gallon of Rum for 
his father's funeral it being in full of all demands. 

Joseph Mitchell. 

Tredy. ye 17th of 4th Mo. 1756. 

There were two school bills paid out of the estate. One 
dated 1755, "Paid to Samuel Willis £^ 4s. for a quarter's 
schooling for two children." Another dated the 27th of Sept., 
1756, when Samuel Willis acknowledges the receipt of £2 for 
three quarters schooling for two children " due the last of Janu- 
ary by agreement of the said Isaac Walker in his lifetime." 

It would be interesting to know where the school was kept. 
There must have been some means of education in the neighbor- 
hood, as even in the time of Lewis Walker his children wrote a 
very fair signature. In Philadelphia there were sex'cral very 
good schools, but they were too far off to be of advantage to 
our colonists. It is well known that the Quakers early appre- 
ciated the necessity of good schools, and Enoch P^lower adver- 
tises as early as 1683 his terms for teaching to read, write, and 
cast up accounts (Proud's " History of Penns}'h'ania "). 


Sarah, the widow of Isaac Walker, continued to reside at the 
homestead until her second marriage with Jacob Thomas, of 
Willistown, istmo. 25th, 1759. They were married at Newtown 
Meeting, and it was witnessed by Jacob, Jr., Isaac, William and 
Hezekiah Thomas, Joseph, Daniel, Sarah, Beulah, Sarah Walker, 
and thirty-five others. A few months previously, Dec. 8th, 
1758, she had released to her son Joseph her share of the estate 
for ;^50. The home farm at this time comprised 268 acres, as 
Joseph, the eldest son, had received 100 acres out of the west 
end for his inheritance before his father's death. Each of the 
children on coming of age released their rights to their elder 
brother for ;^ioo, and thus Joseph Walker came into possession 
of the original tract, the plantation of his grandfather, Lewis 
Walker. (See Appendix B.) 

Sarah Walker must have taken her younger children with 
her to her new home, as her son Benjamin writes himself "of 
Willistown," and both he and his sister Rachel married there. 
Jacob Thomas, her second husband, did not live long after his 
marriage; his will, written 3d mo. 28th, 1760, probated Oct. 2d, 
1765, mentions his wife Sarah, children Joseph Walker, his 
brother Joseph, step-son Benjamin Walker, step-daughter Rachel 
Walker, nephew Jacob Thomas, Joseph, Samuel, and Abraham 
Thomas, friend John Evans. Exec, Sarah Thomas, Joseph 
Walker ; witnesses, Thomas Waters and Jonathan Roberts. 

Sarah Thomas lived until April 26th, 1802, and had almost 
reached her ninetieth year. She is represented as being a woman 
of unusual ability. Because she sometimes put "her mark " to 
business papers along with her signature is no proof that she 
could not write her name. I am told by those well informed on 
the subject that this was frequently done in those times, as affir- 
mation to the signature to give it emphasis, as some used a seal. 
Leah W. Moore, one of her descendants, thus writes of her : 


'I'he eloquent tongue or pen of a ready writer, can they set forth all 
her virtues ? In her last sickness she appeared all love. As she lived, she 
died, advising her children to live in love. One evening during her illness 
one of her grandchildren, Enoch Walker, sitting by her bedside, spoke in 
an affectionate manner of his dearly beloved grandmother, how she had 
been blessed from her youth until a good old age, what a large family she 
was going to leave, and not a profane person amongst them. She died 
most calmly and peacefully. Her parents died in her minority, and I have 
heard her say how blessed her life had been. How the Lord had tenderly 
cared for her all her life. She was a most tender, affectionate mother, a 
good neighbor, most careful and tender for poor bound children, saying 
such had none but the Lord to cry unto. She was my great-grandmother. 
I remember well saying to her, " Why, thee don't look much older than my 
grandfather." She replied, " I am only eighteen years older." She died 
9th mo. 26th, 1802, at the house of her daughter Rachel, at Eastown, and 
was buried in the Valley Graveyard by the side of her husband Isaac 
Walker. The number of her children, grandchildren and great-grand- 
children was one hundred and sixty two.

NO. 15. ZiLLAH Walker'^ (Daniel,- Lewis '), born in Tredyf- 
frin Township, Chester County, Penna., 1732 ; married ist, 
Thomas, son of Thomas Maule, " late of Salem, New England," 
a merchant of Philadelphia. She is said to have been a most 
comely damsel, and while on a visit to Philadelphia so attracted 
the attention of the young merchant of whom she was making 
some purchases that he desired to become better acquainted. 
He therefore adopted the happy expedient of not being able to 
make the right change, and promised to take it himself to her 
home in the Valley on the following " First Day." He rode up 
with the money at the appointed time, and was so much pleased 
with his visit that he came again, and yet again, and it ended in 
a wedding at the Valley Meeting-house on the loth day of 8th 
nio- 1753- Although the acquaintance had a romantic begin- 
ning, we may be sure Daniel and Lydia Walker had a knowl- 
edge of the stranger's family before he was admitted into their 
household, and as they were married by Meeting, a strict inquiry 
would be made into his character and antecedents before consent 
would be given to the marriage. 

Zillah Maule removed her certificate of membership from 
Radnor to Philadelphia Monthly Meeting 12th mo. 13th, 1753. 
On the 29th of 9th mo., 1756, Thomas Maule and wife Zillah, 
and children Sarah, Daniel, and Thomas, took their certificates 
from Philadelphia back to Radnor Monthly Meeting. 


An abstract of the will of Thomcs Maule is to be seen at the 
Pennsylvania Historical Society rooms, which I have copied. 
" Thos. Maule of Radnor, farmer, signed 3d mo. 17th, 1762.

Jacob, Benjamin. Exec. Zillah Maule, Abel James, John Head, 
Daniel Walker, Jr." (Abstract of Philadelphia County Wills, 
Vol. VI.) 

Zillah, the widow, must have married her second husband, 
Joshua Brown before her father's death in 1772, as she is men- 
tioned in his will as Zillah Brown. 

Thomas and Zillah (Walker) Maule had eight children :

frin Township, Chester County, Penna., 1734; married Samuel 
Richards, "son of Samuel, of TredyfTrin," 4th mo. 4th, 1764. 
The Richards family were among the earliest settlers of Tredyf- 
frin, their land lying along the Schuylkill River between Valley 
Forge and what is now Port Kennedy. The old homestead, 
still standing, is now owned by Mr. Joseph Patterson. 

In the " Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography," 
Vol. \l., I find there was an Owen Richards who emigrated 
before 1718, and that Rowland Richards, of Merion, purchased 
land in Tredyffrin 1707-8. It is supposed that Owen and Row- 
land were brothers. Rowland Richards, who died in 1720, had 


five children, — ]\Iargaret, married John Langworthy, 171 1 ; 
Elizabeth, married Peter Thomas, of Willistown, 9th mo. 6th, 
1717; Gainor, married Evan Bovven, 1721; Sarah, married Cad- 
walader Evans, son of Evan Pugh, of Gwynedd, 1722 ; and 
Samuel, who married Elizabeth Evans (born 1700), daughter 
of Owen and Elizabeth Evans, of Gwynedd (see Xo. 0), 
at Gwynedd Meeting-house, 2d mo. 21st, 1726. Samuel and 
Elizabeth '(Evans) Richards had Rowland, who married Mary 
Miles, daughter of Richard Miles, in 1752, and whose descen- 
dants went west ; Samuel, who married Beulah Walker, and 

Catherine, who married Lewis. 

From abstract of wills at the Historical Society rooms, 
Philadelphia: " Saml. Richards, yeoman, signed July 13th, 
1760, mentions wife Elizabeth, children Rowland, Catherine 
Lewis and Samuel. Elizabeth and Samuel are executors.

Samuel and Beulah Richards resided at the homestead on 
the river-side, and here their children were born. They had six.

No. 70. VI. Samuel^ Richards, born April loth, I77<S, married 
Ann Walker (No. 248). 

No. 17. Jacob Walker^ (Daniel,^ Lewis ^), born in Tredyf- 
frin Township, Chester County, Penna., 1736, married Ruth 
Thomas at Radnor Meeting-house, ist mo. 4th, 1764. The 
marriage was witnessed by Esther, Michael, and Thomas 
Thomas, Daniel and Jarman Walker, and others. Jacob Walker 
inherited the Valley farm on the death of his father, and his 
name frequently appears in the old records. In the " Book of 
Sufferings" at Radnor, his name is down for £^^. This shows 
the amount carried away by the Hessians on their famous raid 
through the Valley after the battle of Rrandywine. The house 
in which Jacob Walker lived at that time has a bullet hole in the 
stairway. It is said a Hessian soldier fired the shot through a 
window opposite, declaring that a rebel was in the house. The 
old-fashioned mantelpiece also carries its marks of ancient daj's, 
" 1776" being cut in the wood in several places. One can see 
them through many coats of paint. 

Jacob and Ruth (Thomas) Walker had two children :

Malin, 1761. Their marriage certificate, which was on stamped 
paper, is as follows : " This is to certify whom it may concern 
that on the 12th day of November, 1761, in the city of Philadel- 
phia and Province of Pennsylvania, Jarman Walker and Jane 
Malin, both of Chester County, were joined together in the holy 
bond of matrimony according to the rights and ceremonies of 
the Church of England, by me Wm. Sturgeon." 


On "4th mo. loth, 1762, Jarman Walker made acknowl- 
edgment for marrying out " (Radnor Monthly Meeting Records). 
His name appears among the taxables in 1753. In his will, 
made 1770, he mentions his son Thomas Jarman Walker, and 
his daughters Lydia, Mary, and Sarah. 

Jarman and Jane (Malin) Walker had four children :

father was from England, but whose mother, Martha Menden- 
hall, though of English parentage, was born in Virginia. Abel 
Walker lived near Winchester on a farm ; I think on the same 




land settled first by his father. Here he built a stone house, 
which several generations of the family have since resided. 
Elisha Hunt Walker, of Baltimore, Md., writes : "I have seen 
this old house built by my greatgrandfather. The corner-stone 
was marked A W, with the date, which I have forgotten. It 
was torn down last year." The farm is now owned by Hugh S. 
Lupton, son of Jonah and Lydia (Walker) Lupton (No. 2 1 3).

Thomas, daughter of Thomas and Sarah (Jarman) Thomas. 
She was born 3d mo. 25th, 1734, and died " 12th ye 3d mo.," 

Thomas Thomas, born 3d mo. 12th, 1690, died 5th mo. 13th, 
1754, was the eldest son of William and Elizabeth Thomas, who 
settled at Newtown, Chester (now Delaware) County, Penna., in 
1698. They were Quakers, but joined the Keithites, or as they 
called themselves, "the Christian Quakers," at the time Keith 
made the schism in the early church of Pennsylvania. In 1708 
William Thomas joined the Seventh-day Baptists, and was dis- 
owned by Friends. Thomas, his son, deeded, Jan. 30th, 17 17, 
half an acre of land to Philip Rytherah, Henry Lew'is and 
David Thomas, all of Newtown, to be used by the Seventh-day 
Baptists for their burying-ground. This was afterwards pur- 
chased by the Newtown Baptist Church for their grave-yard. 
William Thomas was connected through his wife with Richard 
Iddings, the grandfather of General Anthony Wayne. She is 
supposed to have been a sister of Richard, and daughter of 
Richard and Sarah Iddings, of Nantmeal ; Richard Iddings, Sr., 
died 1726. Richard Iddings, Jr., in his will, dated March i6th, 
1753, alludes to his " kinsmen, Thomas Thomas, of Radnor, Philip 
Thomas, of French Creek, and David Thomas, of Newtown," who 
were sons of William and Elizabeth Thomas.* William Thomas 

*The following notes that I have collected may be of interest to some. Richard 
Iddings married Margaret Philips at St. Paul's Church, Chester, Penna , Aug. i8th, 
1705. They had two children : Priscilla, who died 1758, married Humphrey Wayne ; 
Elizabeth, born 1709, died 1793, married Isaac Wayne, and had six children, four of 


purchased lOO acres of land of Jeremiah Jarnian and Morgan 
Jones. In an indenture made Feb. i6th, 1741, between " Phihp 
Thomas, of Coventiy, in tiie County of Chester, yeoman (one 
of the sons of Wm. Thomas, late of Newtown, in the County 
aforesaid, yeoman, deceased), and Esther, his wife, and David 
Thomas, of Nantmeal, in the County aforesaid (one other of the 
sons of the said Wm. Thomas), and Ann, his wife, of the one 
part, and Thomas Thomas, of Newtown, aforesaid,, yeoman, 
(eldest son and heir at law of the said Wm. Thomas), of the other 
part." Philip Thomas and Esther, his wife, and David Thomas 
and Ann, his wife, " in consideration of the natural love and 
affection which they have and beareth unto their said brother, 
Thomas Thomas, as well as for the sum of ^10," give up the 
tract where Thomas Thomas now resides, containing 150 acres, 
"with all buildings, fishings, fowling, hawkings, etc." 

William Thomas's wido\v married 2d, Jacob Chandler. Her 
son David, in his will dated May 17th, 1742, leaves one-third of 
his estate to his mother, Elizabeth Chandler. 

Thomas Thomas, the eldest son of William and Elizabeth, 
married Sarah Jarman, born 2d mo. 14th, 1695, daughter of 
John and Margaret Jarman. The name of Jarman, Jerman, or 
German, comes from the old Flemish colonists, called Germans, 
who were brought into Wales, 1107, by Henry I. John and 
Margaret Jarman came from Llanidles, Montgomeryshire, Wales. 
Some records say they came from Llangerigg, Radnorshire. The 
following is a copy of their certificate of removal :

John Jarman was an active member of the Society of Friends 
at his home in Wales, and suffered both imprisonment and fines 
f )r conscience' sake. Be^se, in his "Sufferings of the Quakers, " 
says: "Anno 1677, on the i8th of the Month called July, two 
priests in Montgomeryshire, Wales, gave information of a meet- 
ing at the house of John Jarman in that borough-town (on the 
Severn), upon which the Mayor with constables came thither and 
arrested seven of tlie assembly and committed them to prison." 
As a fine for allowing meeting to be held at his house a cow 
worth £2 I OS. was taken from him. Indeed, this one meeting 
cost the worshipers assembled there, in fines, the round sum ol 
£27 I OS. 

John Jarman settled in Radnor, Delaware Count}-, Penna., 
on a farm of 100 acres purchased by him 4th mo. 4th, 1688 
(Pennsylvania Archiv^es, Vol. I., Third Series, page 13). A 



patent for 152 acres adjoining the above was executed to his 
widow Margaret Jarman, Oct. 25th, 1703. Her son John agrees 
to pay a Noble per acre for this land. To show how little atten- 
tion was paid to the .spelling of proper names at that time, we 
see in these papers, "The Minutes of ye Welsh Purchasers," 
that the clerks have spelled the name Jarman two different ways, 
and botii are wrong. They have it German and Jermain. 

Settling in Radnor at an early date in its history, John Jar- 
man was instrumental in building up and establishing the 
Friends' Meeting-house that is still occupied by the Society. 
He gave the land on which it was built, and, although he may 
not have lived long enough to preach in it, he did preach at the 
religious meetings that were held in private houses in the settle- 
ment. He was appointed constable in Radnor in 1689, but 
refused to be qualified for the office until the sheriff apprehended 
him for contempt of court. The date of his death is not 
recorded, but he was buried at Radnor, 12th mo. 14th, 1697. 
His wife Margaret died loth mo. 30th, 1740. Her will, dated 
"23rd December, 1731," in which she leaves to her son John 
Jarman her residence " with all lands and appurtenances there- 
unto belonging." To her daughters Margaret, Priscilla, Eliza- 
beth, and Sarah she leav^es 40s. each, and to her grandson, 
Solomon Thomas, " one good yearling filly, or 50s." She also 
leaves 20s. to repair Radnor Meeting grave-yard. A memorial 
of Margaret Jarman was sent from Radnor Monthly Meeting to 
Philadelphia Quarterly Meeting, 7th mo. i ith, 1758. The two 
eldest children, Elizabeth and Sarah, who came with their parents 
from Wales, died young. The other children, born in Pennsyl- 
vania, were : John, born Nov. 1 2th, 1684, " the first male child born 
of European parents in Radnor Township (Smith's " History of 
Delaware County") ; Priscilla, born 1687 ; Margaret, born 7th 
mo. 9th, 1689; Elizabeth, born 9th mo. i6th, 1690 ; and Sarah, 


born 1 2th mo. (February) 14th, 1695, who married Thomas 
Thomas. John Jarman, Jr., was a man of note in Radnor, as 
well as one of the earliest mathematicians in the colonies. He 
commenced publishing an Almanac in 1722, the title-page to the 
first issue of which is as follows : 



" 'Sun, Moon & Stars, the Heavens on high 
Are seated all in Majesty, 
Distilling of their Influence 
On our Terrestrial Globe from Thence.' 

" Philadelphia, Printed by Andrew Bradford in the Second Street." 

Copies of these Almanacs are preserved in the Ridgway 
Branch of the Philadelphia Library. This Almanac appeared 
yearly for more than thirty years, except in 17 14, when he 
visited England and Wales. In an obituary notice in the 
" Pennsylvania Chronicle " he is spoken of as a " gentleman well 
known for his astronomical calculations." He was also some- 
thing of an astrologer, and in his later years was endow ed with 
the gift of second sight. He married 2d mo. 8th, 1725, an Irish 
woman, named Mary, by whom he had two children, — Priscilla, 
born loth mo. 3d, 1730, died 7th mo. 6th, 1769, who married 
Rees Thomas (see No. 112), and Lewis, born 9th mo. 21st, 
1732, who died unmarried. 

Sarah Jarman, who married Thomas Thomas, had si.x chil- 
dren, — Jacob, who married Sarah Russell, 2d mo. 15th, 1747; 
William (see page 79) ; Solomon, who is mentioned in his grand- 
mother Jarman's will; Hezekiah ; Priscilla, who married Abijah 
Stephens (see No. 207) ; and Sarah, who married Joseph Walker 
when she was eighteen and he twenty-one years old. 

Joseph and Sarah Walker went to live on the farm that 


joiiiLHl his father's estate, wliieh kind was bequeathed to Isaac 
Walker by his father, Lewis Walker. Here a house was built, 
which, with some enlargement and improvement, still stands, the 
home of his great-great-grandson, William H. Walker, A grist 
mill was erected close by, where Joseph's younger brother, 
Asahel, assisted him as miller. Joseph Walker was essentially 
a man of affairs. His father dying when he was quite a young 
man, he, as administrator to the estate, had the care of settling 
up the property, as w^ell as looking after the young brothers' and 
sisters' education and settlement in life. It will be remembered 
that he acquired by purchase all the original tract of land left 
by his father, besides other property, of w'hich more will be said 

Sarah Walker, or " Grandmother Sarah," as she is always 
called, was a worthy daughter of worthy sires, and is always 
spoken of as a notable woman. The times in which she lived 
called for extra courage from the wives and mothers. The Indian 
massacres and border wars, that caused such trouble to the Sus- 
quehanna settlers, did not reach Chester Valley except by rumor. 
The early settlers about Philadelphia had always maintained the 
friendliest relations with the Indians, and when, in 1764, they 
were called upon by the authorities to give money or men to 
help quell the disturbance about Lancaster, some of them 
objected to assisting the cause in any way. The Quakers all 
over the country were much exercised, arguing that they had 
had no trouble with the savages, because they had treated them 
humanely. There were riots in the streets of Philadelphia, occa- 
sioned by the attitude of the Quakers, and dead bodies of the 
massacred w^hites were conveyed along the Lancaster Pike, from 
the scene of carnage to Philadelphia, that their wounds might 
speak for them. But though the Indians left them at peace, 
another foe, quite as deadly, entered the household of Joseph 


Walker, and carried off tliree sinall children. The smallpox 
was epidemic in 1764 in the Valley. 

The winter of 1777 and '78 also marked an epoch in this .sec- 
tion of the country, and must have changed the whole tenor of 
the lives of the inhabitants. Most of them were conscientiously 
opposed to war, it being almost exclusively a Quaker commun- 
ity. There is no doubt that many of them were Tories, but 
Joseph Walker and his wife seem to have been in sympathy with 
the American cause, if they were not declared rebels. General 
Washington himself said that previous to wintering at Valley 
Forge he had looked upon the Quakers as Tories and sympa- 
thizers with the British Army, but that he had found them most 
kind, and to be relied upon when he dwelt among them. They 
would not be spies on either side, although some of them were 
offered substantial benefits. Knowing this trait in the sect, spies 
took advantage of it, and sometimes adopted their costume and 
manner, thus bringing the Quaker name into disrepute. 

The country hereabout was roughly visited by both parties. 
When the British passed through it after the battle of Brandy- 
wine, they tarried a few days, and were most unwelcome guests. 
Howe, who was in command, halted his army between New Cen- 
treville and Howellville, making his headquarters at the house of 
Samuel Jones, a near neighbor to Joseph Walker. (This house 
is now occupied by Mr. Frank Latch.) General Cornwallis 
stopped fjirther up the Valley, at the house of the late " Widow " 

After the British had swept over the country, helping them- 
selves as they went along to all they could use or carry away, 
General Washington's troops came and encamped at Valley 
Forge. The residence of Joseph Walker was not far from the 
encampment, and General Anthony Wayne, being a kinsman to 
his wife, took up his quarters with them. The Historical Society 


of Pcnns}-lvania has recently caused a memorial stone to be 
erected on the place, commemorative of Anthony Wayne's resi- 
dence there during that troubled time in our country's history. 
The house is much the same as it was then. There is a secret 
closet in one of the bed-chambers, of which General Wayne 
made use for hiding his papers. The two parlors were thrown 
into one, and the great corner fire-places were pulled down a 
few years ago when the house was repaired. 

To protect the property from the ravages of the soldiers a 
guard was granted to Joseph Walker, as witness the following 
paper : 

As I have foraged at Mr. Joseph Walker's and have taken as great a 
quantity of forage from him as he can possibly spare without distressing 
his Family which is large, and he has been plundered greatly by the 
Enemy he Desires you will give him a protection.

Joseph Walker's son Lewis, who was eleven years old at 
this time, remarks in old writings, which are still in the possession 
of his family, that his " father's house was headquarters for 
officers of the army then lying at Valley Forge," and that he 
was thus brought into contact with the suffering soldiers of that 
period. In speaking of his mother, whose memory he revered, 
he would say, " Ah, that noble, that queenly woman ! How 
well do I remember the day when five deserters were brought 
back, and a court-martial was held in the house, at which General 
Wayne presided. Some one told m\' mother that an example 
was to be made of them, and that they were to be shot. She 
had the General called out of the room and said to him : ' Cousin 
Wayne, I hear five deserters have been taken and are sentenced 


to be shot. This must not be. Poor fellows, hungry, cold and 
almost naked, if I was a soldier I would do so too.' The 
General turned no deaf ear. The voice of pleading mercy was 
heard, and they were pardoned." (From notes of Lewis 
Walker's daughter, Marian Meares.) 

To the soldiers standing guard about the place Sarah Walker 
was uniformly kind and thoughtful ; she had corn mush made 
for them daily, whicli her little son Lewis carried to them, along 
with milk. Another chronicler of a wider reputation, Henry 
Woodman, in his " History of Valley Forge," says : " One 
thing the suffering soldiers particularly craved in the spring of 
1778, was vegetable food, as they had long been confined to the 
salted provisions of the camp. His (Joseph Walker's) meadows 
abounded at the time with docks and other greens, but the guard 
would not permit them (the soldiers) to enter. His bene\'olcnt 
wife took upon herself the responsibility of permitting them to 
enter the meadow and collect the greens to boil with their .'^alted 
provisions. Neither the soldiers nor herself were ever molested 
for the liberty they had taken." 

The same writer tells us that " during the war Joseph Walker 
endeavored as much as possible to take no part with either of 
the contending powers, he being a man of pacific principles and 
a member of the Society of Friends. This gave occasion for 
many to condemn him as a Tory, but such was his steady and 
consistent conduct that he escaped with less loss of property 
than many others. He had a large field of rye and one of 
wheat, and the whole of his mowing ground, that were not de- 
stroyed, Wayne having placed a strong guard over them to pre- 
vent the enclosures being taken away." 

The Friends' Meeting-house at the Valley was used as a 
hospital for the sick soldiers at Valley Forge, and I liave always 
been told that they were kindly cared for b)- the people of the 


ncitjhborhood. The soldiers who died were buried in the grave- 
yard close under the western walls of the house, a trench for 
that purpose being kept constantly open. 

General La Fayette, who was quartered at Samuel Havard's 
house (now the home of Mr. Harry Wilson), was a frequent 
vi.sitor at the home of Joseph Walker, and it is said that the 
little Naomi, afterwards the wife of William Thomas, was a 
special favorite of the gallant young Frenchman. She would sit 
on his knee and amuse him with her prattle, and on one occasion 
pinned a "posy" in his coat. The officers of the Continental 
Army were quartered all about the neighborhood : General 
Knox was with John Brown, who lived at the head of the Dam, 
late the home of Mrs. Mary Jones ; the Count Du Portails lived 
with John Havard, on the farm adjoining ; while the Baron de 
Kalb was with Abijah Stephens, near the camp (see No. 267). 
All of these houses are still standing, some occupied by the de- 
scendants of the original owners. 

Sarah, the wife of Joseph Walker, died 3d mo. 12th. 1792, 
aged fifty-eight. She was buried in the Valley grave-yard two 
days later, and it is recorded in the family Bible that over a 
thousand people attended her funeral. Isaac Potts, of Valle}' 
Forge, preached the funeral sermon. It was a fashion of the 
time to write acrostics and obituary verses ; several of these 
poetical effusions are in my possession which have Sarah Walker 
for their theme. One written by a kinswoman, Sinah Hammer, 
speaks of 

" Her hospitable house, her open door, 
Her arms e'er ready to receive the poor." 

I have one letter, written, evidently, to her daughter Priscilla 
after her marriage, which is undated and unaddressed, a copy of 
which I insert here : 


The evening 9 day of i i month. 

Dear child, I long to see you very much and have been looking for 

you, my dear child. 1 think thy months is very long. I can't go to see 

you for thy sister Naomi is offen poorly and a good deal low spirited. I 

expect every day she will send for me. 1 was very glad that thee and thy 

dear companion went to see them. 1 would been glad to be with you but 

it seems as bad to leave home now as ever I think. Betty is gone away and 

I have nobody but the little girls, but Molly Thomas is with us now, and 

when I turn my back the girls is sassy enough to Polly so I must stay to 

keep good order and then we gose on pretty well. We heard that thy 

bosom friend is gone and left thee awhile, on a good errant, I hope, and I 

think thou art happy to have such a blessed companion and 1 believe the 

more he gives up to serve his good master the more favors and blessings you 

will receive both spiritual and temporal. We received a letter from thy 

Uncle William * they were all well and gave good accounts and a kind 

invitation for us all to sell here and go there where we may live esey, no 

fines to pay. Now I must conclude with my kind love for your welfare 

every way. Near one at night, thy father gone toward Philadelphia, from 

thy tender mother 

Sarah Walker. 
Just agoing to bed. 

For the good reputation of the family it is but proper to add 
here that "the girls " who were " sassy" were not the daughters of 
the house, — they were all married ; they might have been young 
serving maids, it being customary at that time for housekeepers 
to have young girls apprenticed to learn house work. 

Two years after Sarah Walker's death, her husband married 
again. His second wife was Jane Rankin, widow of William 

* William Thomas, her brother, went to Georgia to live, but disapproving of 
slavery, left the south and removed to Ohio with his daughter Rebecca and his son 
"Cam," and settled there, in Muskingum County In 1805 he came on a visit to 
Pennsylvania to see his sister's family. His daughter accompanied him ; he was then 
eighty years old and the whole journey was made on horseback. He wrote verses of 
fair quality and recorded certain events in the lives of himself and family. It has been 
my privilege to hear some of these recited by his great-niece and my great-aunt Mary 
W. Roberts. (See No. 252.) 


Rankin, wlio, it is said, was a British officer. She was a resident 
at the time of London Grove Township. They were married at 
New Garden Meeting, and the wedding certificate is signed by John, 
VVilHam, John, Jr., Kitty, Ann, Mary and Rebecca Rankin, her 
chikh-en, all or nearly all of whom came to live with their mother 
at her new home in the Valley. Maiy and Kitty Rankin married 
in the Walker family, as will be seen later. Jane (Rankin) Walker 
died suddenly, March 9th, 1813, of a paralytic stroke while 
returning from a visit " in the gig " to her step-son, Isaac Walker, 
who lived at " Rehobeth." 

Joseph Walker became totally blind in his later years. He 
lived beyond his eighty-sixth birthday, dying at his home 
November ist, 18 18. Letters to his will were granted at West 
Chester, November 3d, 18 18.

the year 1743, died 12th mo. 31st, 1821. He was sixteen years 
old when his mother married her second husband, Jacob Thomas. 
He learned the trade of cooper, and in 1764, when he releases 
to his brother Joseph all his rights to his father's estate, he calls 
himself " Benjamin Walker, of Willistown." (See Appendix B.) 

He married, 4th mo. 13th, 1769, Ruth (died 8th mo. 5th, 
1 8 17), daughter of John and Ann (Jones) Morris (see page 86), 
at Newtown Meeting-house, at the sam-e time that his sister 
Rachel married Lewis Morris, a brother of Ruth. In 6th mo. 
4th, 1772, Benjamin Walker, with " his wife Ruth and child 
Sarah," moved their certificate from Uwchlan to Warrington 
Monthly Meeting, York County, Penna. Here he purchased a 
large tract of land (about 1,000 acres) in the vicinity of the 
Warrington Friends' Meeting. A stone and log house was on 
the property at the time of the purchase, and here the family 
lived until 1790, when he erected near it a large stone mansion. 
This house stood until 1886, when it was torn down by Joshua 


V. Walker, and a modern frame structure erected in its place. 
The old stone house that was built in 1790 has, at various times, 
sheltered about all the preachers of note belonging to the Societ>' 
of Friends in the United States. 

Benjamin F. Walker, of York, Penna., great-grandson of 
Benjamin Walker, writes : " My father was about seven years 
old when his grandfather Benjamin died, consequently has very 
little personal recollection of him. I learn that he was a man of 
great physical strength, fine physique and handsome, a man 
noted for his strong devotion to his family, church (Friends) and 
friends, and possessed of all the characteristics that go to make 
up the perfect man."

Lancaster County, Penna. Remarried 7th mo. 20th, 1769, Ann, 
daughter of James and Ann (Starr) Moore, of Sadsbury. She 
was born 175 1, died 1825. Her mother was a daughter of 
Jeremiah Starr, of Chester County. Asahel Walker, in 1768, 
releases all his rights to his father's estate to his brother Joseph, 
for ^100. (See appendix B.) In this paper he calls himself 
"Asahel Walker, of Tredyffrin, in the County of Chester, 
Province of Pennsylvania, millwright." On 4th mo. 9th, 1771, 
he, along with his wife and son James, removes his certificate of 
membership from Merion Monthly Meeting to Warrington, York 
County, Penna. The next move is on ist mo. iith, 1788, 
when " Ashahel Walker, wife and children, Ann, Isaac, Mary, 
Sarah and Asahel, remove their certificate to Sadsbury." (Rad- 
nor Records.) 

Mr. Harris, in his " Biographical History of Lancaster 
County," gives a short account of Asahel Walker, which I insert. 

Asahel Walker of Sadsbury Township, was born at the Valley Forge, 
in the year 1746. He was the son of Isaac and the grandson of Lewis 
Walker, who emigrated from the Principality of Wales about the year 1 700, 
and purchased a large tract of land from William Penn at the Valley 
Forge, where, it is said, William Penn visited him the following year. He 
erected a commodious stone edifice thereon, at which a meeting of the 
Society of Friends was established in the year 17 13. . . . Although it has 


underLjone repairs, it is standint^ as a part of the family mansion at the 
present time (1872). The land is now divided into about ten farms, and is 
still held by his descendants. His grandson, Asahel Walker, was united 
in marriage with Ann, the daughter of the well-known James Moore, of 
Sadsbury, in the year 1769. tie afterwards purchased a tract of land in 
Sadsbury, which had belonged to his father-in-law, and which had been 
taken up by William Penn in the year 1700, while on his visit at the Gap. 
and which he had surveyed off for his own use. 

At the age of sixty-six years he divided this land between his sons 
Isaac and Asahel, which is now owned and occupied by his grandsons 
Isaac and Asahel C. Walker. After thus adjusting his temporal matters, 
he retired from the cares of the world, and spent the remainder of his life 
(over a quarter of a century) in promoting the cause of his Divine Master, 
and became a worthy minister of the Gospel Truths in the Society of 
Friends. During no period of his life did he seek public distinction, yet 
he had charge of various important public and private trusts for members 
of diflerent religious persuasions. During his whole life he was truly a 
worthy and faithful member of society, so that he may be classed with the 
good, and remembered with the just. He departed his well-spent life in 
the year 1838, in the 93d year of his age. 

His descendants are still numerous and respectable ; besides the 
Walkers, are included some of the Moores, Pownalls, Coopers, Linvilles, 
Ellmakers, Dillers, Worsts, and Hersheys, Mrs. Percy Barnard, Mrs. Mary 
L. Roberts, of Texas, the Sprouls, Houstons, and some of that^ excellent 
and highly respectable family of the Trouts of the Township of Bart. 

Asahel and Ann (Moore) Walker had eleven children :

No. 129. II. Edward* Walker, born 1772, died young.

No. 53. Rachel Walker^ (Isaac,^ Lewis'), born at " Reho- 
beth," Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, Penna., 12th mo. 
20th, 1748, married 4th mo. 13th, 1769, at Newtown Meeting, 
-Lewis Morris, of Eastown, Chester County, Penna. Lewis 
Morris was grandson of John Morris, who came to Pennsylvania in 
the year, 1708, with his wife, Jean, and son, John. They came 
in the ship with Ellis Pugh, who was returning from a visit to 
Great Britain (see No. 106), who mentions in his diary that they 
were his fellow passengers, and adds that he " taught their son 
John his A, B, C's on shipboard." 

John Morris came from Merioneth, Wales, and probably from 
Dolgelly, though this cannot be proven. That they knew Ellis 
Pugh, of Dolgelly, makes this seem possible. And if it could 
be ascertained that John Morris came from there, there is a chance 
of his descendants inheriting some millions of pounds now lying 
ill the Bank of England awaiting a claimant. Some few years 
ago an effort was made to claim it, and it is from a pamphlet pre- 
pared at that time, called " The Morris Family," loaned me by one 
of the descendants, Anna B. Walker, of Emerson, Ohio, that I 
have collected the following data regarding the family, which I 

The estate in Wales was a valuable mining property, besides 
which there was a large sum of money that went with it. The 
Morris family in Pennsylvania knew their ancestor had left 
brothers in Wales, who were unmarried and in good circum- 
stances, and who had visited them in America. There was also 
a rumor of an inheritance, but for some reason no attention was 


paid to it. Early in this century an advertisement began to ap- 
pear for certain heirs of the Morris family, in the newspapers of 
Pennsylvania, which attracted the attention of some members of 
the family, and an effort was made to investigate it, and, if they 
were the heirs, to lay claim to it. Bfit nothing could be done, 
because there was no proof that John Morris was from Dolgelly, 

John Morris, the emigrant, bought a large tract of land in 
Hilltown Township, Bucks County, Penna., and settled there- 
of five children born to them, but three married : John, born 1705, 

died 1786, married Ann Jones, 1738; Margaret, married 

Phillips ; and Jean, married Rowland. The family lived 

forty years in Bucks County, and when John Morris died in 1748, 
he left his property to his grandson, Lewis Morris, w hen he should 
attain the age of twenty-one. In the year 1761, John Morris, 
2d, turned the property over to his son, Lewis, according to the 
terms of the Will. In 1764, Lewis Morris, then about twenty- 
four, with his father, left Bucks County and came to Eastown, 
Chester County, to live, where they bought land, some of which 
is still in the possession of the family. 

John and Ann (Jones) Morris had ten children, four of whom 
mariied : Ruth, married Benjamin Walker (see No. 51) ; Lewis, 
born 1739, died 1823, married Rachel Walker; Morris, born 
1 741, married Ruth Buffington ; and Anthony, born 1747, 
married Elizabeth Evanson. 

Lewis and Rachel Morris lived on their farm in Eastown 
Township, and here Rachel's mother died, in 1802. Rachel and 
her husband both sign their names to the release given to Joseph 
Walker, Feb. 5th, 1770, when they gave up, for the sum of ^100, 
all their rights to the estate of Isaac Walker, deceased. (See

Walker, of Tredyffrin, in which she says that " cousin Ann

No. 65. Daniel Richards* (Beulah,' Daniel,^ Lewis ^), born 
at the homestead near Valley Forge in the year 1 764 ; married 
Lydia, daughter of Abel Thomas. Daniel and Lydia Rich- 
ards moved to Susquehanna County some time in the "twenties," 
or perhaps earlier, where they settled. I think they were 
pioneers. My correspondent, Emelyn A. J. Richards (No. 463), 
writes : " Out at Friendsville, Susquehanna County, where my 
grandfather Richards lived, there is not a trace of the old Society 
of Friends left. The httle meeting-house is gone, and in its 
stead is a very small Episcopal Church. Even that has had its 
day, and is no longer used. The little burying-ground is all 
overgrown with a copse of young forest trees. There is nothing 
to show there ever was a burial place. The whole country side 
is now made up of thrifty but illiterate Irish Catholics." 

Daniel and Lydia (Thomas) Richards had seven children :

19th, 1799. The marriage was witnessed by Samuel, Mary and 
Ann Wright, Beulah, Daniel, Lydia and Samuel Richards. 
Samuel and Lydia (Richards) Wright lived in Philadelphia until 
the year 1837, when they moved to Belmont County, Ohio. 
They had five children :

No. 70. Samuel Richards * (Beulah,^ Daniel,- Lewis ^), born 
at the homestead near Valley Forge, Penna., April loth, 1778, 
died at Mt. Pleasant, Jefferson County, Ohio, Sept. 8th, 185 1. 
He married Ann, daughter of Isaac and Mary (Pugh) Walker 
(No. 248), April 14th, 1802. They lived for some years at the 
Richards homestead, on the Schuylkill River, and here all their 
children were born. They decided, for some reason, to sell the 
Pennsylvania home, and move west. Accordingly, on Nov. 2d, 
1 8 24, they started, driving up through southern New York, passing 
through Buffalo, until they came to Mt. Pleasant, Ohio, which 
place they reached on the i8th of December, where they ended 
their long journey. They had traveled by wagon 635 miles in 
forty-si.x days. The eldest son, Isaac, fortunately, kept a jour- 
nal, by which we are enabled to follow them in their travels. 
(See Appendix C.) I have heard my great-aunt, Sarah Robin- 
son, tell how the family at " Rehobeth " went to the top of the 
Meeting-house hill to see the great wagons winding their way 
out into the distance, and that they could scarcely see them for 
their tears. Ann Richards was born at " Rehobeth," and was a 
much loved sister of Joseph Walker, who then owned it. 

Samuel and Ann (Walker) Richards prospered in their new 
home, and both died there. Ann died in the year 1849. ^ think 
they never revisited their old home, but some of the family, of 
whom Joseph Walker was one, paid them a visit a few years 
after their emigration, driving both there and back again. 

There is a letter from Ann Richards, dated 1833, in which 
she expresses herself as very happy in Ohio. She says the 
farmers there " live well, dress well, and are getting rich." They 
have good society, their neighbors are well-informed people, and 


they feel very much at home, though she says they look back 
with affection to Chester Valley. The cholera was raging 
around them when she wrote, but they had escaped. She speaks 
of their neighbor, Thomas Robinson and his family (see No. 249). 
Another neighbor, James Rankin, who married Caleb Dilworth's 
daughter, had a woolen factory near them, while John Rankin's 
son Stephen had gone to Canada to sell the estate there. (See 
No. 46, under Jane Rankin.)

Isaac Walker took his wife to the old homestead, " Rehobeth," 
where they resided the remainder of their lives, and raised a 
large family of children. When the Hessians came through 
this section of the country, they paid a visit to them, and drank 
up all the milk that was set to cool in the spring-house. It is 
said that the thirsty soldiers took up the full milk pans and drank 
it all down ; then without pausing to wipe the cream from their 
long beards, continued their search for something to eat or carry 

Isaac Walker was a prosperous farmer and made many im- 
provements on the old place. A new barn was built in his time 
and an addition was put to the west end of the house. The 
initials "mw" mark the gable end of the new part, which con- 
sisted of a wide hall running through the house, and two large 
rooms on the first and second floors, opening into it. A long 
piazza in the front of the house, facing the south, made quite a 
respectable mansion out of the old home. W^hat is now the 
large parlor, was then two rooms, with big fireplaces and carved 
mantlepieces, which have recently been removed for more modern 
ones. One of these mantlepieces contained a small secret closet 
that only the sharp eye of the initiated could detect. Fortunately, 
it was never needed to hide anything but the pipes and tobacco 



of our great-grandfather, though it was put there for convenience 
in case of war, the silver spoons and papers not always coming 
out of the ash hopper or well, where they were sometimes 
hurriedly thrown on the approach of the enemy, in as good con- 
dition as when they went in. 

Isaac Walker also dug the well that has supplied drinking 
water for the household for so many years. Before it was made 
the water was carried from the spring at the foot of the hill. It 
is said that they dug for days without finding water, and were on 
the point of giving it up when they struck the solid rock and a 
stream gushed forth that has flowed continuously ever since, even 
in the times of greatest drought. 

Isaac Walker, by indorsing notes for his brother Enoch, be- 
came involved in his failure early in the present century, which 
caused his father, Joseph Walker to leave the farm," Rehobeth," to 
Isaac's eldest son, Joseph. Isaac was, however, to live on the 
farm the rest of his life. His wife, Mary Walker, accidentally 
gave their daughter, Zillah, the wrong medicine, which caused the 
child's death. The mother never recovered from this shock, but 
suffered from melancholia for several years, until her death. Her 
husband wrote a letter to his children a short time after her 
death, which is, I think, worthy of being inserted in these pages. 

Valley, 7-24, 1813. 
Dear Children : 

I have took up my pen to put on record your dear mother's worth- 
She was a woman beloved by her Maker and by all mankind generally. 
As for me, I have met with a stroke occasioned by her removal from me, 
which I am not able to withstand. But still I have hopes, tho' small, and 
confidence if I keep to the faith, to rest with her and the just and upright 
in the Kingdom of Heaven where the righteous are at peace. She was one 
that was counted worthy to be afflicted in body and mind for the obtaining 
of her soul's salvation, which is my belief she has gained, she being a 
mild and discreet woman. From the first of my acquaintance with her, 



that was about the year 1764, then I was a lad, and from the acquaintance 
I had with her I thought there was something in her modesty and behavior 
that fixed my affection on her. As we grew in years we were the more re- 
spectful of each other until we were married, which was in the year of our 
Lord, 1775. From that day until the day of her death she was a loving 
wife unto me, a tender and affectionate mother, a good neighbor, and a 
follower of Jesus Christ, her Redeemer. 

Dear children, about fifteen years ago, she was brought very low, with 
a severe fit of sickness that the doctor called an inflammation on the liver. 
Then you were young, and I put up my supplication unto the true and liv- 
ing God Almighty according to my weak ability, that if the Lord would be 
pleased to raise her until the children grew up, if she should then be taken 
from me I could then give her up unto the Lord for allowing my petition. 
But poor weak man, I am scarcely able to bear the trial ; but when I take 
a view of our children which the Lord has favored us with, whose orderly 
conduct gives me great satisfaction, I hope it may be for my good, and for 
the good of you all, my dear children, I conclude with my prayer for 
you all as one child, that you should choose the Lord for your portion and 
the God of Jacob for the Lot of your Inheritance. This is what I request 
of you all. Then you will be members of the Church MiUtant, and like- 
wise of the Church Triumphant. 

These are your father's prayers and love to you all, my dear children. 

Isaac Walker. 

A few years after the death of his wife, Isaac Walker married 
Sarah, widow of Paul Conard, and daughter of Joseph and 
Sarah (Shoemaker) Roberts, of Montgomery County, Penna. 
Sarah, the second wife, was born 8th mo. 27th, 1771. She had 
a son, Isaac Walker, who was born when hjs father was sixty-four 
years old, who studied medicine and was graduated at the Univer- 
sity of Pennsylvania. Dr. Walker practised medicine in Chester 
Valley, and was widely esteemed. He married, but left no de- 

Henry Woodman, in an article written at the time of Isaac 
Walker's death, says of him : " He was unambitious of the 
honors of the world, but of those virtues which adorn private life 


he was excelled by none. Generous, benevolent and humane, his 
pride was in doing good. He performed his social duties with- 
out parade, and his religious obligations without ostentation." 

He was a large, powerful man, of great muscular strength. It 
is told of him that on one occasion a robber entered the house of 
a neighbor (Wm. Cleaver, his niece's husband), and prowling 
around the kitchen with felonious intent, stepped upon a trap 
door, and was precipitated into the cellar below, out of which 
there was no egress, the ladder being drawn up at night. The 
thief, in his efforts to escape, made so much noise as to arouse the 
family. The neighbors were sent for, and the first to arrive was 
Isaac Walker. He looked down into the dark pit and seeing the 
man told him to hold up his hands and he would pull him out, 
which he did with so much force as to not only pull the man up, 
but to throw him on the floor, where he held him until he was 
bound, ready to be carried to prison the next day. 

While Isaac and Mary Walker occupied the old homestead, 
a dreadful murder was committed in a house across the meadows 
on the site of some of the buildings belonging to the late Thomas 
U. Walker. Nearly all of the occupants of the house were 
murdered by a pedlar and his accomplices, who hoped to find 
gold hidden in the house. One of the victims managed to crawl 
across the fields to Isaac Walker's, with his throat cut from ear 
to ear. He aroused the family, who took him in, and he died on 
the kitchen floor shortly afterward. A long ballad on this 
gloomy subject was at one time extant, I have heard fragments 
of it, but have never seen the verses.

graveyard. His wife was a widow when he 
married her, with several children. He was 
a man of much culture, kind and generous. 

No. 107. Priscilla Walker* (Joseph,^ Isaac,^ Lewis ^), born 
in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, Penna., 3d mo. 25th,

1795. She married 7th mo. 25th, 1783, Eli Yarnall, a member 
of Chester Monthly Meeting, son of Nathan and Hannah 
(Mendenhall) Yarnall. Hannah Mendenhall was a daughter of 


Benjamin and Lydia (Roberts) Mendenhall ; Benjamin, her 
father, was a son of Benjamin and Ann (Pennell) Mendenhall. 

Eli Yarnall, born 3d mo. 29th, 1753, died 8th mo. 25th, 
18 1 2, was a preacher and a respected member of the religious 
Society of Friends. He was descended from some of the earliest 
settlers of Pennsylvania. In 1687, Amos and Mordecai Yar- 
nall took up 500 acres of land in Willistown. 

Priscilla Yarnall seems to have had some of the poetic fire of 
her mother's family, I am in possession of an acrostic written 
by her on the death of her mother. 

Acrostic on the death of Sarah Walker, deceased the 12th day of 
3d mo., 1792. Composed by her daughter, Priscilla Yarnall : 

" Sweet husband and dear children, oh, do not wish my stay ; 
Archangels wait my coming, Messiah trod the way. 
Remember all my counsel, how sorely I've been try'd, 
Ah, He who's all compassion that truth has verified. 
Handing forth his cup of Life, my soul has satisfied. 
Wrestling, Jacob like, his Blessing long I've sought. 
And that my tender offspring to his Banquet might be brought ; 
Leaving the things that are behind, in faithfulness pursue, 
Keeping his blessed precepts, all which are just and true. 
Even as my comfort now doth flow, so will my love with you remain. 
Resigning all unto the Lord, and hope to have you yet again."

No. 108. Thomas Walker* (Joseph,^ Isaac,^ Lewis*), born 
in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, Pcnna., 12th mo. 29th, 


1757, died 3d mo. 17th, 1839. He married 4th mo. 2d, 1789, 
Margaret, daughter of Richard and Hannah (Potts) Currie. 
Margaret Currie was born March 13th, 1772, died May 5th, 

Richard Currie was the son of Rev. WilHam Currie, first 
pastor of old St. David's Church, Radnor, who was born at 
Glasgow, Scotland, in the year 1710, and was educated at the 
university there. He came to America as a tutor to the son of 
Mr. Carter, of Virginia, on the recommendation of the faculty of 
the College. After holding this position for several years, he 
went to New Castle, Delaware, where he became acquainted 
with the Rev. George Ross, Rector of the Immanuel (Episcopal) 
Church. Under his instruction, Mr. Currie examined the 
doctrines of the Church, and by him was recommended to the 
Royal Society of England, where he proceeded for ordination. 
Returning to America about the year 1737, he became lay- 
reader of Perkiomen Church, as well as of St. David's, Radnor,"*' 
and St. Paul's, Chester County, Penna. In 1752, he became 
the first regular Rector of these churches. He married, ist, 
Margaret Ross, born 17 14, died 1771, the daughter of the Rev. 
George Ross, of New Castle, Delaware. 

The following is taken from " Some Account of the Mission 
in Pennnylvania," delivered at a convention of the clergy of that 
Province, in Philadelphia, May 2d, 1760: 

"Mr. Currie, the Society's Missionary here (Radnor), labours under 
great indisposition of body, and could not attend the convention. He is 
much esteemed in his mission, which is a very extensive one, and neglects 
no opportunity that his health will permit of doing his duty." 

In 1760, he writes from Radnor asking that a habitation be 
provided for him, saying that he had been in the Society's

service for twenty-three years. Tlie Society was called " The 
Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts." 

From Dr. Perry's " Historical Collections of American 
Colonization Churches." Mr. Currie to the Secretary of "The 
Society for the Propagation of the Gospel in Foreign Parts" : 

Radnor, March 31st, 1760. 
Rev. Sir : I must beg leave to acquaint the Secretary that although 
my hearers are many in number, especially at Radnor and Great Valley, 
yet they are become so very careless and lukewarm that I can not get them 
to meet on Easter Monday to choose a Vestry, &c. 

I am. Rev. Sir, 

William Currie, 

At the commencement of the Revolutionary War, Mr. 
Currie, feeling that he could not violate his ordination vows by 
omitting the prayer for the King, and his congregation insisting 
that it should be left out of the service, resigned his pastorate 
May 1 8th, 1776. (See Appendix D.) 

After the Ratification Treaty between England and United 
States, the clergy being thus absolved from their oath of office, 
Mr. Currie again officiated in St. David's Church, performing the 
marriage services and administering the ordinances of baptism. 
In 1783, he was again installed as pastor. The last years of his 
life were passed on his farm in Tredyffrin, with the family of his 
granddaughter, Margaret (Currie) Walker. His second wife was 
Lucy Ann, widow of David Jones, and daughter of Thomas 
Godfrey, of Tredyffrin. She died in Tredyffrin, February 14th, 
1778, aged fifty-four. The Rev. William Currie died October 
26th, 1803, aged ninety-three. 

His will is recorded at West Chester, Penna., Book K, page 
436. He mentions his granddaughters Margaret Hoffa and 
Sarah Shuben, sons John and William, his grandchildren, the 
children of his son Ross Currie in New Brunswick, his grand- 


daughter Margaret, the wife of Thomas Walker, his grand- 
daughter Ann, the wife of William Broadess, and he leaves ten 
English pounds to St. David's Church, Radnor. His estate was 
valued at ^^"3116 4s. gd. His books were valued at ;^i8 los. 
He was buried at St. David's, Radnor, along with his two wives. 

The Rev. George Ross, the father of Margaret, the Rev. 
William Currie's first wife, born 1673, died 1754, was graduated 
at the University of Edinburgh in the year 1700, taking the 
degrees of M.A. In 1705 he came to America as a missionary, 
from Ross-shire, town of Tain, parish of Fern, Scotland. He 
was one of the first missionaries sent by the Church of England 
to the British North American Colonies, for the propagation of 
the Gospel. He married his cousin, Joanna Williams, of Rhode 
Island, and settled in New Castle, Delaware. After three years 
he moved to Chester, Pa. In 171 1, while on his way to England 
on a visit, the ship on which he was a passenger was captured by 
the French, and he suffered much hard treatment at their hands. 
After his release from captivity, he returned to America and to 
New Castle. In 1717, he accompanied Governor Kieth on a 
tour through the counties of Kent and Sussex. He had charge 
of the Immanuel Church at New Castle from 1705 to 1708, and 
again from 17 14 to 1755, in which last year he died, aged 
seventy-three. He was buried beside the church ; a marble 
tablet, bearing a Latin inscription, is on the exterior wall of the 
old church, in commemoration of him. One of his sons was a 
Signer, but all his children seem to have occupied prominent 
positions in our early history. 

His son, John Ross, born 171 1, died 1766, was appointed by 
George III. Attorney General for the three counties in Delaware, 
from 1754 to 1763. 

Another son, Eneas Ross, born 17 16, died 1782, was or- 
dained in Whitehall Royal Chapel, London, 1 740. He succeeded 


his father as Rector of Immanuel Church, where he continued in 
charge until his death. 

A third son, George Ross, born 1730, died 1779, studied law 
under his brother John, moved to Lancaster, Penna., 175 i, elected 
to the Continental Congress, 1774, where he continued to sit 
until 1777. He was one of the signers of the Declaration of 
Independence. In 1779 he was appointed Judge of the Court of 
Admiralty for the State of Pennsylvania, and died July, 1779. 

A daughter, Mary Ross, married the Rev. Wm. Thompson, 
of St. Stephen's Church, Cecil County, Md. Catherine Ross, a 
second daughter, married Wm. Thomson, an Irishman, who was 
appointed captain of a troop of Light Horse, of the ist Bat. 
Pennsylvania Regiment, May 31st, 1758. At the siege of 
Boston in 1775, he had command of the first rifle regiment raised 
in Pennsylvania, and was the second Colonel appointed in the 
Continental Army. During the Revolutionary War he became 
a general officer, and at its close settled in Cumberland County, 
Penna., where he died 1781, leaving several children. 

Gertrude, another daughter of the Rev. Mr. Ross, married 
in 1763, George Reed, who succeeded John Ross, his brother-in- 
law, in 1763, as Attorney General for the three counties of 
Delaware. In 1774, he was elected to Congress from Delaware, 
and was one of the signers to the Declaration of Independence. 
He was also one of the five signers who framed the Constitution 
of the United States. In 1779 he resigned his seat in Congress. 
In 1793, he was appointed Chief Justice of the Supreme Court 
of Delaware, which office he held until his death in 1798. 

Margaret Ross, who married the Rev. Wm. Currie, before 
mentioned, had seven children : John Currie, a lawyer, of Beth- 
lehem, Pa. ; James Currie, a physician, practicing in Chester 
County, Pa. ; William Currie, a physician, commissioned Surgeon 
in Coloniel Atlee's Musketry Battallion, April 6th, 1776, but 


resigned on account of ill health, September 27th, 1776. Went 
to Philadelphia in 1792, where he died, 1829; Richard Currie, 
born 1750, died Sept. i6th, 1776, married Hannah Potts, born 
1755, died Feb. 23d, 1778. He joined the ist Militia of Penn- 
sylvania, at the commencement of the Revolutionary War, and 
marched with his company as far as Amboy, New Jersey, but 
was obliged, on account of sickness, to return home, where he 
died. He left a widow and three little children to the care of his 
father. His wife did not long survive him, and both are buried 
in St. David's Churchyard. His children were : Margaret, 
born March 13th, 1772, who married Thomas Walker; Ann, 
born Sept. ist, 1773, married William Broadess ; and Richard, 
born July 23d, 1776 ; Alexander Currie, a physician, went to the 
West Indies, married and died there ; Ross Currie, of St. Ann's 
Parish, New Brunswick, was commissioned 2d Lieutenant, Jan. 
5th, 1776, in Capt. John Huling's Company, promoted Nov. 
nth, 1776, to Reese's Company, captured June 8th, 1776, at 
Three Rivers, and was drowned in the St. John's River, Sept. 
1st, 1790, when he was thirty-six years old, leaving a widow and 
two children ; Elizabeth Currie, married Dr. Demon, of Reading, 
Pa. (The particulars of the Currie and Ross families were 
furnished by Mrs. Winfield Wilson, of Chester Valley, and Mr. 
Charles Howard Colket, of Philadelphia, Pa.) 

We see by the foregoing pages that Margaret, the wife of 
Thomas Walker, came from a family prominent in Church and 
State, quite different from the quiet Quakers with whom we 
have heretofore been occupied. But, though Thomas Walker 
was " dealt with " and dismissed from Meeting for marrying a 
church- woman, he continued a Friend, used the " plain lan- 
guage," went to meeting, and both he and his wife were buried 
in the Valley graveyard, along with his ancestors. Margaret, 
his wife, although inheriting fighting blood, was herself a most 



peaceful woman, as were also her numerous children. With the 
single exception of their first child, all the children grew up, 
married, and lived to be grand-parents. They were remarkable 
for the family affection that existed among them to the very last. 
She lived to be a very old woman, and was of exceptional vigor. 
They lived on the farm formerly owned by the Rev. William 
Currie, her grand - father, which farm was bought by Joseph 
Walker, for his son Thomas, Oct. 26th, 1791, for the sum of 
^iioo. On the death of Thomas Walker, in the year 1839, i^ 
descended to his son, Joseph B. Walker.

in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, Penna., 2d mo. 17th, 
1765, died 7th mo. 5th, 18 17. She married WiUiam Thomas, 
eldest son of Rees and Priscilla (Jarman) Thomas, her second 
cousin. Rees Thomas was a grand-son of Rees Thomas, who 
came to Pennsylvania, 1 791—2, and settled in Merion on a large 
tract of land. The villages of Brjm Mawr and Rosemont 
occupy portions of the original farm belonging to him. This 
land was a part of the Welsh tract, and was bought by Rees 
Thomas, 300 acres from Sarah Eckley, v/idow of John Eckley, 
and the adjoining tract from Edward Prichard. Soon after his 
arrival in the Province, he married Martha Aubrcv, to whom he 
had plighted his troth before leaving Wales. They were married 
4th mo. (June) i8th, 1692, at Haverford Meeting. (For an in- 
teresting account of the Aubrey family, as well as for some in- 
cidents in the life of Rees and Martha Thomas, see Appendix E.) 

Rees and Martha Thomas were people of prominence in the 
new settlement at Radnor ; the former was a member of the 
Provincial Assembly in 1705, and his wife was a preacher in the 
Society of Friends. In a religious periodical, called The Friend, 
Vol. XXIX., p. 148, Martha Thomas is mentioned as a "worthy 
elder, zealous for good order in the church, and exemplary in 
her family." "She was buried the 9th of the 12th month, 
1726, at Friends' burying ground at Radnor." Rees Thomas, 
in his will, Sept. loth, 1742, left to William, his son, 200 acres 
out of the north end of the Eckley tract, and to his eldest son, 
Rees, his dwelling-house and plantation of 290 acres. 

Rees and Martha (Aubrey) Thomas had six children, — 

Rees, born 1693, married Jones; Aubrey, born nth mo. 

30th, 1694, went to England, where he married Gulielma Penn, 


daughter of \Vm. Penn, Jr., and grand-daughter of the Founder. 
He died soon after his marriage, leaving one son, Wm. Penn 
Thomas; William, born 5th mo. 2d, 1701, died 1776, married 
Elizabeth Harry, daughter of David Harry, of Chester County, 
Penna. ; Herbert, born 9th mo. 3d, 1696, married, 1738, Mary, 
daughter of John Havard ; Richard, born 5th mo. 23d, 1703, 
died unmarried ; Elizabeth, born 8th mo. loth, 1698, married 
Samuel Harry, son of David Harry. 

William and Elizabeth (Harry) Thomas had eight children, 
— Rees, born 7th mo. 20th, 1726, died (circa) 1771, aged forty- 
five, married Priscilla Jarman (see No. 4()) ; -Martha, married 
Dr. John Llewelen, and left two children, Morris and Eliza ; 
Mary, married Peter Evans ; Hannah, married Jonathan Powell ; 
Elizabeth, married Abraham Evans, of Gwynedd, children, 
William, Elisha, and Edith ; Jonathan, by his first marriage had 
Rees, Rebecca, Elizabeth, and Richard ; by his second wife, 
Ann Haley, had William, Samuel, and Ononah ; David, married 

Rhodes, had children, Martha, Lydia, Aubrey, William, 

and P2Ieanor ; Richard, married Ann , had children, Eliza- 
beth, Martha, and Ann. 

Rees (the eldest son of William and Elizabeth Thomas, 
given above) and Priscilla (Jarman) Thomas had seven children, 
— Mary, married Anthony Tunis ; William, married Naomi 
Walker ; John ; Hannah, unmarried ; Rees, went to Kentucky ; 
Jonathan, went to Kentucky ; and Priscilla. 

William, the eldest son of the above, took his wife, Naomi 
Walker, to the Thomas homestead to live, where they resided 
the remainder of their lives. Their eldest child, Mary (Thomas) 
Jones, left a written account of her family, which is, I think, 
worthy of preservation. I am indebted to a great-niece, Mrs. 
George H. Colket, for the copy, which, with her permission, is 
inserted in these pages. 


Wynne Wood, 3rd Mo. loth, 1829. 

My mind being engaged for some time to preserve a record of my 
family smce their arrival to and settlement in this country, for the perusal 
and information of my dear children and relatives that may feel an interest 
in rehearsals of this kind, and having received the account hereinafter re- 
lated (concerning my dear parents and ancestors) from undoubted author- 
ity, I have thought proper to transmit it in writing. 

My great-great-grandfather, Rees Thomas, the elder, married Martha, 
the daughter of William Aubrey. They removed from Wales, in Great 
Britain, aboutthe year 1695, and settled on a tract of land of about thirteen 
hundred acres, which my said ancestor had purchased in what was called 
Upper Merion Township, Philadelphia County, and Province of Pennsyl- 
vania, ten miles west from Philadelphia. (Their grandson, William 
Thomas, my father, remains to be possessed of about one quarter of said 
original tract, whereon he now resides, and my youngest brother, William 
P. Thomas, now occupies the same stone house they erected for a dwell- 

Their children were William, Rees, Aubrey, Herbert, Richard, and 

Elizabeth. They were members of the religious Society of Friends. 

Robert Proud, in his history of Pennsylvania, mentions the before 
named Rees Thomas as being a member of the Provincial Assembly, 
appointed at a particularly trying time in 1705, when they had the good 
success to settle the disputes that had existed between the Deputy Governor 
and two last Assemblies, "and in consequence of which a great number of 
laws were passed and the public affairs for a time bore a more favorable 
aspect." He is also mentioned in a public capacity in 1725. I have no 
record of the time of their death. 

William Aubrey, the brother of my aforesaid great-great-grandmother, 
Martha Thomas, married Letitia, the daughter of William Penn, the 
founder of Pennsylvania. I have been informed that they had no chil- 
dren, in an account preserved of the family record in the possession of the 
Historical Society of Pennsylvania. 

William Thomas, the oldest son of Rees and Martha Thomas, married 
Elizabeth, daughter of David Harry, of Chester County, (whose name is 
recorded in Proud' s History of Pennsylvania, as being many times a mem- 
ber of the Provincial Assembly.) My aforesaid great-grand-parents, 
William and Elizabeth Thomas, had children whose names were Rees, 
Martha, Mary, Hannah, Elizabeth, Jonathan, David, and Richard. 


I have always heard that William was a very mild tempered man, 
very constant in his attendance of Reli<;ious meetinj,'s, but that he was too 
indulgent with regard to the management of his children, and thereby let 
them go into improper company, to the manifest neglect of business and 
proper improvement of their minds, which afterwards proved very much to 
the disadvantage of some of them and a great source of sorrow to himself 
and friends. 

He built a very good, substantial stone house, finished in a superior 
style for that day, on a beautiful situation, and improved a considerable 
part of his parental estate. The house and part of his farm are now in 
the possession of George Curwen. 

Rees, the second son [On consulting the letter of Rees Thomas, the 
elder, in Appendix E, it will be seen that Rees was the eldest son. The 
letter had not been discovered when Mary Jones wrote her notes. — P.W. S.] 
of Rees and Martha Thomas, married a daughter of Dr. Edward Jones, 
who was also the ancestor of my late husband, Jonathan Jones. They had 
children, but only two daughters lived to be married, — Letitia, the wife of 
David Evans, and Nancy, the wife of Samuel Williams. They were re- 
spectable and useful citizens of Philadelphia. 

Aubrey, the son of Rees and Martha Thomas, went to England and 
there married Gulielma Marie, the daughter of W^m. Penn, the oldest living 
son of the before mentioned Wm. Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania. 
They had one son whom they named Wm. Penn Thomas. Our uncle, 
Aubrey Thomas, lived but a short time after his marriage. I have been 
informed that his widow, in an affectionate letter which she wrote to some 
of her husband's relations, mentioned her said little son as an interesting 

Herbert, the son of Rees and Martha Thomas, married a daughter of 
John Havard, of Tredyffrin Township, Chester County. (See No. 250.) 
They had one son, who died in his minority. Our uncle, Herbert Thomas, 
was much loved by his family for his amiable disposition and kindness of 
heart. I have heard him spoken of frequently, with much affectionate

grand-mother. The only descendants of this marriage with whom I am 
acquainted are Hannah, the wife of Dr. Thomas C. James, of Philadelphia, 
and their children. 

Kees, the son of William and Elizabeth Thomas, married Priscilla, 
the only daughter and final heir of John and Mary Jermon (Jarman), who 
was a learned and respectable inhabitant of Chester County. He (John 
Jarman) lived near Friends' Meeting-house in Radnor Township, where he 
possessed a very valuable estate. My grand-parents, Rees and Priscilla 
Thomas had children, whose names were — Mary, William, John, Hannah, 
Reese, Jonathan, and Priscilla. 

My said grand-parents, I have always heard, were industrious, worthy 
people. They built the mansion house on the farm now belonging to my 
dear father, and in which he dwells, as also other substantial buildings, and 
improved the parental estate to advantage. My grand-father died in the 
45th year of his age, a few years after he had buried my grand-mother. 
Their children being all in their minority, when by the Allwise dispensation 
of Divine Providence they were left orphans at the commencement of the 
Revolutionary War, a time trying in one way or another to all the inhabi- 
tants of this countr)', but more particularly to orphans. 

They suffered much in not obtaining the advantages of education, to 
which they were entitled, as also in their estate. Nevertheless, their 
Heavenly Father, in the abundance of his gracious mercies, preserved them 
from many of the evils of that day. May we remember his goodness with 
gratitude and thanksgiving always, for he still continues to make good his 
blessed promises of the father of the fatherless and friend of the widow 
unto this day. May we all be enabled through the redeeming love and 
power of our blessed Saviour to serve and trust in him who is our only 
sure support and protector in time of trial and need, and I believe will ever 
remain to be a sure support to all those that love and keep his command- 

My great-aunt, Martha Thomas, married John Llewelen, a surgeon 
of consequence and respectability, of Merion Township. They had child- 
ren, two of whose names are all that I am acquainted with, Morris and 

Mary, the daughter of William and Elizabeth Thomas, married Peter 
Evans, but had no children. She lived to an advanced age, and was, I 
believe, much respected, being a sensible, conversable woman, of good 
ideas and retentive memorv. 


Hannah, the daughter of WilHam and EHzabeth Thomas, married 
Jonathan Powell. She had no children, I have always heard she was an 
innocent, inoffensive woman, that had many serious trials to pass through. 

Elizabeth, the daughter of William and Elizabeth Thomas, married 
Abraham Evans, of (iwynedd Township. They had several children, 
those that I rememl^er were William, Elisha, Edith. 

Jonathan, the son of William and Elizabeth Thomas, married twice. 
I do not recollect the name of his first wife, but remembered to have heard 
her spoken of as a valuable woman. They had children — Rces, Rebecca, 
Elizabeth and Richard. His second wife was Ann, the daughter of .Samuel 
Haley. They had children — William, Samuel and Ononah. My said 
great-uncle lived to an advanced age. I was always interested in his com- 
pany, having visited him several times. Many of his remarks I have 
frequently reflected on since his death, having considered them fraught 
with good sense and Christian feeling. He resided for many years and 
died on his farm in Chester County. 

David, the son of William and Elizabeth Thomas, married 

Rhodes. They had children — Martha, Lydia, Aubrey, William, Eleanor. 
My said great-uncle or aunt neither lived to an advanced age. I remember 
to have seen him when a child. He died on his farm in Merion. 

Richard, son of William and Elizabeth Thomas, married Ann 

I have heard that he was of uncommon comely appearance, but unfortun- 
ately not attentive enough to Divine principles of light and truth, which is 
given to every man that cometh into the world to profit withal. He was 
led by unprofitable companions into improper habits that destroyed his 
peace of mind, wasted his estates (having been left a double share by his 
uncle Richard) with gamblers, after which his bodily strength being 
impaired, he was taken ill, during which indisposition he experienced many 
seasons of remorse and contrition for his many deviations from the course 
of life that would have blessed him with comfortable reflections on a bed of 
sickness or death, and might have left his widow and daughters in the 
possession of a comfortable independence, all of which preyed on his mind 
during the latter part of his life. I have been led many times to contem- 
plate his last trials with an ardent desire that his contrition of heart may 
have been accepted by our Heavenly Father, in mercy, through his dear 
Son, our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, in whose love and redeeming 
power is the only stay and sure support of our poor and frail nature. 

William, the oldest son of Rees and Priscilla Thomas, born 7th mo. 


8th, 1776, married Naomi, the daughter of Joseph and Sarah Walker, of 
Great Valley, Chester County, Pa., who were exemplary and pious people, 
and, I believe, respected by all who knew them. I have heard many testify 
in an uncommon manner of the affection and grateful remembrance they 
had of the noble and generous acts of kindness and hospitality extended 
by my dear grand-father to themselves and others during the Revolutionary 
War and since. They being members of the Religious Society of Friends, 
whose principles would not permit my grand-parents to take an active part, 
either offensive or defensive, in the struggle of that time, therefore, united 
their efforts to do all that was in their power to relieve those that were 
in trouble or distress, without respect to persons or party ; many were the 
opportunities that presented for exercise of the law of kindness and acts of 
charity to the poor, half clad and shivering soldiers, as well as private in- 
dividuals. General Wayne selected their house for his headquarters for 
six months during the winter that General Washington had his army in 
winter quarters at the Valley Forge, which was a few miles from my grand- 
father's dwelling. They were, of course, surrounded by the American 
Army, and, consequently, witnessed a great portion of the distress and 
suffering of that eventful period. 

The above named William and Naomi Thomas, my dear parents, had 
nine children, whose names were and are : Mary, Rees, Sarah, Joseph, 
Emily, Priscilla, Louisa, William and Jane W. It is, I believe, by Divine 
appointment, that my dearly beloved mother has been called from workc 
to rewards. She was a woman of uncommon good understanding, and 
had the spirit of discernment superior to many of her time. She seemed 
very desirous to train us up in the fear and admonition of the Lord. 

My two dear sisters, Emily and Sarah, have also departed this life, and 
we hope and trust, have with our dear mother, entered into their eternal 
habitations of rest and peace. 

My Aunt Mary, the oldest child of Rees and Priscilla Thomas, married 
Anthony Tunis, the oldest son of Abraham and Hannah Tunis, persons of 
respectability in Lower Merion. Their children's names are: Charles, 
William, Abram, Rees, Priscilla, Jane, Aubrey and Richard Tunis. My 
father and Aunt Mary are all of their father's family that we know of having 
children. My Uncle John and Aunt Priscilla are dead. Aunt Hannah 
lives with my father, not married. Rees and Jonathan went to Kentucky, 
and we have not heard from them for many years. Mary Jones. 


Rees Thomas, who married Martha Aubrey and founded this 
family, had a brother William living in 1722. (See Penna. 
Archives, II. Series, Vol. XIX., p. 715.) William and David 
Thomas were among the witnesses to his wedding in the year 
1792. It is thought they were his brothers or near kinsmen. 
(Penna. Maga., No. 13, 1889, p. 488.) I have thought the 
Wm. Thomas mentioned in No. 4(>, might be Rees Thomas's 
brother, as they lived near each other and were contemporaries. 
In " Besse's Sufferings," we find that in 1661, in Pembrokeshire, 
William Thomas, of Landewy, James Lewis and others were sent 
to prison. Also, that William Thomas, of Landewy, was fined 
40s. for tithes, not paying which a horse and mare are seized.

Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, Penna., nth mo. 19th, 
1767, died in Philadelphia, 8th mo. 25th, 1854. He married, in 
the year 1791, Mary, the daughter of Samuel and Sarah 
(Stevens) Pancoast, of Philadelphia. Mary Pancoast was born in 
the year 1772. Lewis Walker left his country home in the year* 
1782, when he was fourteen years old, and went to Philadelphia 


to learn the trade of hatter, in which he served an apprenticeship 
of seven years. He was actively engaged in business until the 
day of his death. He was one of the original members of the 
Welsh Society, to which he belonged for fifty years, its object 
being to help Welsh settlers on their first arrival in Philadelphia. 
In an obituary notice of him published in the Pennsylvania 
Inqiurcr, at the time of his death, we read : " Lewis Walker, our 
most estimable citizen, who retained until the day of his death a 
most vivid recollection of the sufferings of the American Army at 
Valley Forge. The encampment was on the farm of his father, 
and Lewis Walker was then a boy about eleven years old. His 
father's home was the residence of several of the officers, among 
whom was General Wayne, his mother's cousin. Mrs. Walker 
was very kind to the soldiers who were on guard near her house, 
and it was the daily duty of Lewis to carry them a large pot of 
mush and milk prepared for them by his mother. He enjoyed 
an untarnished reputation for honor and integrity. His manners 
had evidently received the impress of his early associations, and 
were characterized by a stately courtesy that well became his 
peculiar dress of short clothes and top boots, but did not conceal 
the natural gentleness and kindness of his heart." 

The following notes, taken by Lewis Walker during the sum- 
mer of 1832, when cholera was epidemic in Philadelphia, were 
found among his papers after his death, by his daughter, Marian 

8th mo. 8th, 1832. The situation of the Citizens of Philadelphia at 
this time on account of the increase and spreading of the cholera, and 
the number of deaths reported every twenty-four hours, is truly alarming 
particularly to those residing near the seat of contagion. About the 
skirts of the city there are many scattering cases, and it has been rapidly 
increasing. The inmates of our Arch St. Prison are in an alarming con- 
dition. About twenty deaths with double that number of new cases were 
reported yesterday for the last twenty-four hours. Our Alms House has 


not escaped. Many deaths have taken place there. It was thought ad- 
visable by the managers to have one or two hundred of the inmates re- 
moved to the new and more commodious building in Blockley on the west 
side of Schuylkill, which was done, but alas, the sickness has broke out 
amongst them and many of them are dead. Of the 116 new cases re- 
ported for the last twenty-four hours there were but fifty-six within the limits 
of the city, except those in the IVison and Alms House. I find there are 
many of our citizens but little alarmed, our streets are so completely 
cleansed and the gutters well drenched with a copious stream of the 
Schuylkill water and every known nuisance removed and all the cellars 
white-washed and every foul filth wherever deposited ferreted out. Yet 
very many are on the wing or just awaiting to take their flight, whither to, 
they know not. None of the small towns within a day's ride of this may 
be exempt. 

.Some consider the farm-house the safest place for escaping from the 
disorder . . . I do not consider it a light matter for people to abandon 
their business and homes for weeks or months having no certain knowledge 
when they may return. We all have our fears and apprehensions of dis- 
aster of some sort or other. It's true, we know not where we are safe, 
whether at home, in the bustle of business, or in the pursuit of safety by 
flight to an adjoining neighborhood. These considerations are of primary 
importance, and ought to be duly weighed. 'Tis our incumbent duty to 
repose full and entire confidence in the protecting arm of an all wise Provi- 
dence, as he only can direct our destinies ; implore his assistance with all 
our might, to have the mind in a composed state, unruffled and not tossed 
as it were with a tempest. . . . 

The Physicians reported this day 160 new cases, 270 odd deaths, for 
the last twenty-four hours in the city and Liberties. A Barber was dis- 
charged from prison late last week, on First-day morning he shaved his 
customers, and was a corpse before night. It is not unusual for some of 
the intemperate class to be swept off in but a few hours of sickness. I 
have taken some pains, within a few days, with my acquaintances, resident 
in different wards of this city, to obtain what information they possessed 
about the health of their respective neighborhoods. Not any of them knew 
of a single case of cholera amongst them. 

8th Mo., 9th. The Board of Health reports at 12 o'clock this day, 
for the last twenty-four hours, 76 new cases and 23 deaths for the city and 
Liberty. This decrease will undoubtedly have a tendency of allaying the 


excitement in some degree. Who can devise its origin, or who can say it 
took its flight in Europe and crossed the Atlantic to the shores of North 
America, or that it was generated by insects, or something of that species 
which are seen on or about corruptible matter. These insects are not ex- 
cluded from Hospitals, Gaols, &;c. and are often seen following a corpse to 
its final deposit. We do not know there is not a poisonous property 
attached to them, which will communicate — insensibly — to what ever they 
may touch, as it is with some of the venomous reptile species. Whatever 
they touch, almost instant death ensues. The small particles of matter 
emitted through their fangs into animal nature we know, and have sorrow- 
fully seen its sad effects. Its operation must be instantaneous, and injec- 
tion inconceivably small. Conjecture might with propriety compare it with 
one of the smallest of their tribe, which is known to be invisible without 
the assistance of a magnifier. We must admit a cause for the general 
devastation of this afflicting visitation amongst the human family. We see 
the objects most subject to be arrested are the refuse of human nature or 
the outcast sons and daughters of Bacchus. Their ranks are much reduced, 
and were the disorder to continue a few months longer their number would 
be almost extinct. It is not altogether confined to that class ; here and 
there we see a respectable citizen, who had been uniform in life and habit, 
falling before the Destroying Angel. This is admitted to be a righteous 
judgement from the Almighty on the land, and calls loudly for a calm and 
quiet submission to his mandate, — " Be still and know that I am God."

No. 115. Enoch Walker* (Joseph,-^ Isaac,'' Lewis ^), born 
in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, Penna., 4th mo. 23d, 
1 77 1. He married, 6th mo. 9th, 1797, at Providence Meeting, 
Phoebe Miller, of Chester, Penna. Enoch Walker was one of 
those positive characters who attract attention and leave their 
impression on the community in which they live. He seems to 
be of a more enterprising spirit than the other members of his 
family, but unfortunately his business ventures did not all suc- 
ceed, and his failure affected others. Combined with a daring 
spirit, he possessed a most loving disposition. He was one of 
those men who live in the traditions of the family. He resided 
for awhile on the farm now owned by Mathias P. Walker, and 
built the house there which was first occupied by him. After- 


ward, he bought " Moore Hall," * near Valley Forge, where he 
lived for some time. Here he became involved in business, and 
was declared bankrupt. He then went to Lackawaxen, Wayne 
County, Penna., to look after some property belonging to the 
estate of his father, who had recently died. This property con- 
sisted of a large tract of unimproved land containing 4903 
acres, which Joseph Walker had bought of Thomas Cadwalader 
for $6,000 in the year 1808. The heirs of Joseph Walker were 
desirous of learning if anything could be done with this land, 
and Enoch was chosen to make investigations. In the year 
1820, Enoch Walker, with his children Phoebe M., George M., 
Sarah M., and Priscilla, removed their certificate of membership 
from Radnor to Stroudsburg Monthly Meeting. 

There are some letters in the family that were written from 
Enoch to his brothers from Lackawaxen, relative to selling the 
property and settling up the estate. There was at that time 
(1822) a saw mill on the place, a house had been built which 
they hoped to have plastered soon, a well dug twenty-eight feet 
deep, and thirteen acres of land had been cleared ready for 
sowing. It was at one time hoped that they might start tan- 
neries there — the bark to be procured from the locality and the 
hides brought from New York City — but it was found to be 

When Enoch Walker first went to Lackawaxen, his brother 
Jesse, and his nephews, William Rankin and Peter Walker, 
accompanied him. Probably his wife had died previously, as 
her name is not on their certificate of removal. However, along 
with his own children there was quite a colony of Walkers 
around him. But misfortune followed him even into the wilder-

ness ; his two charming young daughters, Priscilla and Phoebe, 
while on a visit to their relatives near Philadelphia, took sick and 
died of a fever. I think they died on the same day, Nov. 1 3th, 
1832 ; Priscilla at Germantown and Phoebe at the house of her 
cousin, Mary Jones (No. 274), in Lower Merion. The two 
funeral processions met at the cross-roads, near the Valley Meet- 
ing House, and both were buried in the same grave in the old 
graveyard. Some years after their bodies were removed to 
Lackawaxen, where they now rest along with the other members 
of the family. 

Sarah M. Walker and her brother Georcre were the onlv 
members of Enoch Walker's family who lived to mature age, 
and neither of them married. They lived together in their 
mountain home, and, as one who knew them remarked, " the 
dearest old people they were." Their home is now owned by 
Dr. Norris, of Philadelphia, who occupies it during the summer. 
When Sarah M. Walker died a few years ago, there was an 
obituary article published in a magazine, the name of which I 
fail to remember, concerning her. It spoke of her worth in the 
highest terms, of her " help to the poor by wayside, the orphan 
in the asylum, the wounded soldier on the battlefield and the 
condemned felon in the grated cell." Her picture, which 
appeared as a frontispiece, represented her to have been a large, 
handsome woman. George Walker lived to be the last of his 
family^ residing in the old home until his death, which occurred in 
the winter of 1892, in his 94th year. He had been engaged to 
marry his cousin, Beulah Richards (No. 172), who died in her 
eighteenth year, about the year 18 16. He was a surveyor and 
a man of note in the county. He died possessed of considerable

to live with her mother after her second marriage in the year

son of the house, whom she married. Jesse Walker and his

inson, who came to America from Ireland (though it is said that 
he came originally from England) and settled on Pequea Creek, 
in Salisbury Township, Lancaster County, Penna. He married 



Elizabeth, daughter of Guion Miller. His sons, Gaius and Joseph, 
inherited his estates. Gaius married Mary Newlin, the great- 
great-grand-daughter of Nicholas Newlin, who came from Ireland 
in 1683 and settled in Delaware County, Penna. Gaius and Mary 
(Newlin) Dickinson had five sons and six daughters — Daniel, 
who went to Virginia ; Joseph, who went to Ohio; Isaac and 

Nathaniel, who settled in Berks County, Isaac marrying 

Williams, and Nathaniel Moore, both of East Sadsbury.

descendants living. Gaius Dickinson's daughter, Elizabeth,

the Radnor Monthly Meeting Record-book thus : " Joel Walker, 
son of Abel and Ann, of Warrington, York County, married 
Mary Morris, of Newtown, loth mo. 13th, 1820." Mary Morris, 
on the death of her father in 1800, went to live with her grand- 
mother, Rachel (Walker) Morris. She was then but three years 
old. While on a visit to her cousins in York County with her 
aunt, Ann Morris (No. 145), she met her cousin, Joel Walker, 
whom she soon after married. They lived in York County 
until the year 1838, when they moved to Ohio, where the family 
has since resided. 

A grand-daughter, Anna B. Walker, of Emerson, Ohio, 
furnishes me with the following account of their emigration : 

"In the spring of 183S, Joel and Mary Morris Walker 
decided to emigrate to Eastern Ohio, with their family of five 
sons and two daughters, in company with Jacob McMillan and 
family. They started on their journey the ist of 4th mo. Joel 
Walker had previously visited Jefferson County, Ohio, and had 
arranged with his friend, Nathan Hussey, to live on his farm 
adjoining his home-place, the said property being situated about 
seven miles northwest of Mt. Pleasant. 

" According to the custom of the time, they traveled in their 
own conveyance. The Walker family had a large English 
wagon, drawn by three horses, and a carriage, or dearborn, 


drawn by one horse. They stored what furniture and bedding 
they could in the wagon, besides a great amount of provisions. 
The sixteen-gallon copper kettle was filled with pies, as they 
were considered a necessity — especially to the boys. It took 
them two weeks to make their journey, as they were not able to 
travel more than twenty miles a day. They stopped at taverns, 
or rather unfurnished buildings, at night, where they used their 
own bedding and provisions. 

" The route from York was through Gettysburg, Bedford, 
Somerset, Mt. Pleasant, Washington, Washington County, 
thence on the National Pike Road to Wheeling. They had crossed 
the Ohio River at Martin's Ferry on the i6th, and remained there 
over a day, on account of a heavy snow. At that season of the 
year the roads in this part of the country were almost impassible. 
The snow and rain of winter had made the rich soil like mush to 
the depth of one or two feet, and the travelers were an entire day 
going from Martin's Ferry to Mt. Pleasant, a distance of nine 
miles. The two families were obliged to double teams in order 
to get their wagons up the many hills. 

" On reaching Mt. Pleasant the McMillan family went to a 
brother's house, two miles farther on. The Walkers went to 
their new home, where they remained a few years, until they 
bought a farm of their own in Belmont County, four miles south- 
west of Mt. Pleasant, where Joel Walker and his wife resided the 
remainder of their lives."

No. 189. Samuel Richards' (Samuel,' Beulah,'' Daniel,^ 
Lewis ^), born in Pennsylvania, Feb. 6th, 18 14, died at Ironton, 
Ohio, in the year 1891. He went with his parents to Ohio, 


and has added an interesting postscript to his brother Isaac's 
journal of the trip. (See Appendix C.) Samuel Richards was 
married three times. His first wife was Mary A. Giles, who died 
of the cholera, leaving two sons, Lewis W. and Samuel. His 
second wife was Sarah Ann Kelvey, who possessed beauty both 
of person and character. She, too, died early, leaving three 
sons, John K., Charles D. and Joseph W. She was descended 
from a Scotch Highlander, named MacKelvey, one of the sup- 
porters of Prince " Charlie." * After the Battle of Colloden, he 
escaped to France with the Prince's party, married a French 
lady, and settled down to a life of exile, along with many other 
Scotchmen, loyal subjects of the unfortunate Prince. In the 
year 1764 their son, Thomas, was born. In 1792, during the 
Reign of Terror, the family fled to England. Here they were 
at first kindly receiv^ed, and Thomas MacKelvey, who about this 
time seems to have dropped the " Mac," and was called Thomas 
Kelvey, married Ann Secor, niece of Thomas Secor, Archbishop 
of Canterbury ; but, suspected of disturbing the neutral position 
of the government, they were forced to leave London. Thomas 
Kelvey, with his wife and their son John, next emigrated to 
America, and it is supposed that they formed a part of Blenner- 
hasset's colony. The family in Ohio have some interesting heir- 
looms that were brought over with them at this time, among others 
a beautiful miniature portrait of Thomas Kelvey. He is repre- 
sented in the picturesque costume of his time, with curled wig 
and lace ruffles. The Kelvey family soon became identified with 
their new home, and John Kelvey there married Keranhappuck 
Hussey, a descendant of Christopher Hussey, one of the early 
settlers of New England, who, with Tristram Coffin and Thomas 
Macey, was among the original owners of Nantucket Island. 

*In the " Legitimest Kalender," 1895, among the people attainted and driven out 
of Scotland by Act of Parliament, 1745-46, is " Alex. Macgilivrae, of Drumglash, 


Keranhappuck Hussey was also a descendant of the Rev. 
Stephen Bachiler (i 561-1660). Non-Conformist, who left Eng- 
land for Holland, and after a short residence there, came to 
America in the year 1632. He went first to Lynn, Massachu- 
setts, where his daughter Theodate (died 1649), who married 
Christopher Hussey, had preceded him. From Lynn he went 
to Ipswich, thence to Newberry, where he lived until 1638, when 
he settled at Hampton, Massachusetts, where he was installed first 
pastor of the Congregational Church. For an interestino- 
account of the Rev. Stephen Bachiler, the reader is referred to 
"The Life of John G. Whittier," by Pickard. It mentions the 
" Bachiler eyes" as being " dark, deep set and lustrous," with a 
tendency to repeat themselves from generation to generation. 
Sarah Ann Kelvey had these eyes, and she has transmitted them 
to some of her children. The Rev. Stephen Bachiler, who was 
one of the ancestors of Daniel Webster, as well as of our 
American poet, John G. Whittier, who has immortalized him in 
•' The Wreck of Rivermouth," may well claim our attention, and 
his descendants in the Walker family have reason to be proud of 
their Bachiler blood. We can see that Sarah (Kelvey) Richards 
was of distinguished ancestry, and, with such a record, it is not 
to be wondered at that her eldest son should seek the poHtical 
field, and interest himself in the affairs of government. 

Samuel Richards married for his third wife, Laura A. West- 
lake, by whom he had three children. He was a resident of 
Ironton, Ohio, where he was connected with the iron business. He 
frequently visited his relatives in Chester Valley, and was much 
beloved by all of them. He was a tall, dignified gentleman, of 
scholarly tastes. He died in the seventy-eighth year of his age, 
and was carried to his grave by his six remaining sons. His

married, ist mo. i6th, 1806, Joseph Rhoads, son of Adam and 
Sarah (Jeanes) Rhoads, at the Friends' Meeting-house, Radnor, 
Delaware County, Penna. They lived at the old homestead of 
the Rhoads family until about the year 18 10, when they moved 
to Philadelphia, where Joseph Rhoads engaged in the lumber 
business with his brother, Daniel J. Rhoads, under the firm name 
of "J. & D. J. Rhoads." In the City Directory for 1810, their 
office is given "on the south side of High St. (now Market St.), 
near the Permanent Bridge." Their lumber yard extended from 
what is now Twenty-second St. to Twenty-third St., and the land 
from thence to the Schuylkill River was occupied by them as a 
yard for cord wood and building sand. The sand was brought 
up the river in a sloop owned by them, which was the first boat 
to make regular trips up the river, as theirs was the first firm to 
have a place of business on the Schuylkill wharfs. 

In 181 5 they resided in the house now numbered 1709 
Market St., and here several of their children were born. In 
1820 Joseph Rhoads built a house, which was demolished in 
1801, on the "west side of Schuylkill Fifth St.," now Eighteenth 
St., near Filbert. In 1824 he sold out his interest in the lumber 
business to his cousin, Amos Jeanes, who had been his partner 
for some time in his brother's place, and returned with his family 


to the old home near Haddington, where he Hved till his death 
(8th mo. 28th, 1852). His wife, Naomi, died 8th mo. 9th, 1842, 
and both are buried in the Friends' Graveyard at Darby, which 
piece of ground was given to the Society by John Blunston, 
great-great-grandfather of Joseph Rhoads. Joseph Rhoads was 
a member of the Society of Friends, and took a decided part in 
the proceedings which led to the Separation, giving his hearty 
support to that branch of which Elias Hicks was considered the 
exponent. He was active in the anti-slavery cause, always 
giving assistance to the escaped slaves. He was also one of the 
earliest in the temperance movement, and a pioneer in abolishing 
whiskey from the harvest fields. (Copied from an article written

5th mo., 18 1 2, Priscilla, daughter of Thomas and Sarah (Coates) 
Robinson, at Gwynedd Meeting-house. Priscilla Robinson was 
born 6th mo. 20th, 1783, died 5th mo. 19th, 1835. Thomas 
Robinson was a son of William and Rachel (Parks) Robinson. 
William came to Pennsylvania a bachelor, marrying, about the 
year 1728, Rachel Parks, who came with her parents from Ire- 
land, in 172 I, to Chester, Penna. There are several heirlooms in 
the family that belonged to her. One of them is a small chest 
marked with her initials, another is a receipt book written by her 
in the year 17 18. The penmanship of the latter is fine and the 
receipts are interesting and choice, showing her to have been a 
good housekeeper. Of William Robinson's parents we are in 
ignorance. The name is English, and it is thought he may have 
come from Yorkshire. There are many of his name there. He 
was a Quaker. In the Book of Records of the Philadelphia 
Monthly Meeting we find that a person of that name came to 
Philadelphia from Thirsk, Yorkshire, 1702, bringing his certifi- 
cate, signed by Joseph, Samuel, Thomas and Nicholas Robinson 
and others. As the last two are family names, it seems probable 
that William Robinson, the grandfather of Priscilla, might have 


been this man. Again, in " Besse's Sufferings," Vol. i, p. 127, 
the name appears: 1655, Matthew Robinson, imprisoned at 
Carlisle for refusing to pay Tithes. Anne imprisoned for preach- 
ing in Carlisle. 1662, Adam, "four beasts" were taken from 
him worth £2'^. 1684, John and Thomas were imprisoned 
and excommunicated at Cumberland. In 1660, in the North 
Riding of Yorkshire, Isaac, Nicholas, Thomas and William 
Robinson were imprisoned for refusing the oath. 

William Robinson died in 1755. From " Abstract of W^ills," 
Pennsylvania Historical Society: "William Robinson, of New 
Providence, Philadelphia County, proved June 7th, 1755, men- 
tions wife Rachel, children William, Thomas, Nicholas, Mary, 
Elizabeth and Rebecca Valentine. Witnesses, Owen Evans, 
Thomas Valentine. Signed, May 18th, 1755." He had seven 
children: William, born 1728; Elizabeth, born 1730, died 1839, 

married Rossiter ; Rebekah, born I73'2, married Thomas(?) 

Valentine ; Mary, born 1736, died 18 13, married Bane ; 

Thomas, born 3d mo. 9th, 1739, died 8th mo. 27th, 1822, mar- 
ried Sarah Coates ; Nicholas, born 1741 ; Rachel, born 1743. 

Thomas Robinson, son of William, married Sarah, daughter 
of Moses and Priscilla (Hutchinson) Coates, 5th mo. 22d, 1771. 
He rented a farm of Mr. Morris, near Phoenixville, on the Schuyl- 
kill River, where he lived for over fifty years. When he died he 
had his sons settled well in life on farms of their own. The 
family saw something of the British Army on its passage to 
Philadelphia, and an interesting anecdote is given in Cope and 
Futhey's " History of Chester County," concerning Thomas 
Robinson and the English General who tried, unsuccessfully, to 
make him guide the troops across the river. 

When the Schuylkill Canal was cut in the year 1822, there 
was an outbreak of fever in the vicinity which was very fatal, 
and Thomas Robinson, his wife, and daughter Rebecca, all died 


of it within a few weeks of each other. He had seven children : 
Rachel, born 1773, married William Davis, and has descendants 
in Lancaster County and Chester, Penna. ; Moses, born 1 774, 
died 1855, married Anna Thomas (see No. 105 ) ; William, born 
1776, descendants in Port Carbon, Penna. ; Thomas, born 1779, 
moved to Illinois ; Priscilla, born 1783, married Joseph Walker ; 
Sarah, bom 1787, died 1872, lived after the death of her parents 
with Joseph Walker at " Rehobeth," and is buried in the Valley 
Graveyard ; Rebekah, born 1793, died 1822. Moses, the eldest 
son, lived in Charlestown Township, Chester County. He was 
a surveyor, as well as a farmer, and a noted penman. There are 
many deeds, wills and marriage certificates that were written by 
him in which the hand-writing compares favorably with the old- 
time manuscripts of recluse monks that are shown with su much 
pride in museums and galleries. He was also one of the first 
farmers to plant hedges in this country'. 

Sarah Coates, the wife of Thomas Robinson, born 1748, 
married 5th mo. 22d, 1771, died lOth mo. 1st, 1822, was a 
daughter of Moses Coates, who was the son of Moses and 
Susanna Coates. The latter brought their certificates, dated 3d 
mo. 8th, 1 7 17, from Carlow Monthly Meeting, Ireland, to Haver- 
ford, Penna. Susanna Coates was a native of ]\Iunster, Ireland. 
They settled at Phoenixville, in Chester County, about the year 
1 7 5 I . They had six children : Samuel, married Elizabeth, daugh- 
ter of Aaron Mendenhall, in 1743, and had three sons, — Aaron, 
Moses, and Isaac, the latter of whom married Hannah Stalker, 
and v.-hose children reside at Coatesville, Penna., which town 
was named for their grandfather, who settled there. (See " His- 
tory of Chester County," by Futhey and Cope.) Moses, married 
Priscilla Hutchinson, from near Penn's Manor ; Benjamin, mar- 
ried Ann Longstreth, 1756, daughter of Bartholemew and Ann 
(Dawson), and grand-daughter of Christopher Longstreth ; 


they had children, — Jane, Susannah, Benjamin, and Tacy 
Coates ; Jonathan, married Jane Longstreth, sister of Ann, and 
had Ann, James, Hannah, Jonathan, Susannah, Phoebe, Keziah, 
Grace, Isaac, Jane, and EHzabeth Coates ; Aaron, lived at Hav- 
erford ; Elizabeth, married John Mendenhall (?). Moses Coates, 
the second son of Moses and Susanna, lived on the farm settled 
by his father, a large tract of land that is now incorporated in the 
town of Phoenixville. It is told in "The History of Chester 
County " tliat " Benedict Arnold, after the victory of Saratoga, 
which his gallantry had won, remained for a week at the house 
of Moses Coates, near Phcenixville." He gave a party under 
the cherry trees, to which General Washington, though invited, 
did not come. Generals Gates and Mifflin, Colonels Davis and 
Ballard were quartered at the house also, and had a guard of 
twenty-four men. The tea table from which they are said to 
have drunk many cups of tea is still in the family, as well as 
some of the tea cups and the small silver teaspoons used by them. 
The Coates family occupied this property for some time after the 
Revolution, when the son, Moses, went to Virginia and settled 
there, marrying, previous to his removal, Hannah, daughter of 
Mordecai Moore, of Chester Valley. I think he was the only 
son. Isaac Anderson, in an article published in " Potter's 
American Monthly," for January, 1875, entitled " History of 
Charlestown," written about 1802, mentions them among the 
original settlers of that township. He says : " The family of 
Moses Coates by purchase and in the female line own and pos- 
sess a part of the real estate of their great-grandfather." 

Some verses composed by Moses Robinson, the great- 
grandson of Moses Coates, may be of interest to the lover of old 
times. As he laid no claim to the laurels of a poet, we will not 
criticise their literary merit. 



In the village of Phoenix and near a small rill, 

That ripples o'er rocks as it descends from the hill, 

By some wild honey locusts and near to the road, 

The Pioneer of the Wilderness took up his abode, 

Where a dark, tangled forest spread over his ground 

And the howling of wolves made the valleys resound. 

When the country around was all covered with wood, 

A boundless wilderness and deep solitude. 

His cattle did then to the wilderness stray, 

And when evening drew near, he'd be wending his way 

Through thick-set woodland and deep forest dell, 

Directing his course by the sound of their bell : 

And to prevent them from falling to the wild beasts a prey 

He would lodge them in folds e'er the close of the day. 

In morning, to the forest he would go with his axe. 

And in health he did never from his labour relax. 

Till his energy and strength made the wilderness yield. 

And a rich, yellow harvest waved over his field. 

His labour each year did new beauties disclose. 

And the wilderness blossomed like unto the rose. 

The bounties of Ceres his labours beguiled. 

And where late was a desert, a paradise smiled. 

His seven stout sons, so blithesome and gay. 

With cheerfulness worked on his farm through the day, 

And when evening approached and the herd boy appeared, 

The lowing of cattle and cow boy was heard. 

His farmers returning most jovially along, 

The plough-boys were greeted with the dairy-maids' song. 

The songs of his spinners made his mansion resound, 

And their spinning wheels then went merrily round. 

WTiilst his weaver hard by, in a separate room. 

Was timing his ditty to his shuttle and loom. 

With the product of his soil were his graneries stored. 

And crowned was, with plenty, his hospitable board. 

Kind Providence granting what he could reasonably desire, 

And he rose to a competency to which few could aspire. 


But now, alas, how changed is the scene. 

There is scarcely a vestige of what it has been. 

Far down in his meadow where his cattle once strayed, 

The sons of old Vulcan * their fire works displayed. 

Dark columns of smoke in the heavens have appeared, 

And loud peals of thunder are freciuently heard. 

And near its north border, close by the old swamp. 

Where Jack o' the Lantern did oft light his lamp, 

There stands a huge column, belching forth smoke and flame. 

As if ^tna and Vesuvius were playing a game. 

His beautiful garden has gone to decay, 

And his mill and his mansion have both passed away ; 

And the boats may be seen, now, passing along. 

Where his haymakers were enraptured with the dairy-maids' song. 

But nearly a century did since intervene, 

And Oblivion's dark mantle has shrouded the scene. 


In these verses allusion is made to "seven stout sons" of 
Moses Coates, but only five are recorded. Moses, 2d, had, I 
think, but the one son, who went to Virginia. 

Joseph Walker and his wife went, immediately after their 
marriage, to a farm in Radnor Township, near old St. David's 
Church, where they lived until 1822, when on the death of his 
father he inherited the homestead " Rehobeth," to which he 
moved, and there resided till his death. Priscilla, his wife, is said 
to have been a gentle, quiet woman, and, like all the members of 
her family, of an amiable disposition. On her death, her sister 
Sarah took charge of the household, and was a mother to the 
small children, by whom she was tenderly loved and honored. 
She lived to be eighty-five, retaining all her faculties to the last. 
She never wore " flannels," and all her gowns were made low- 
necked and of a by-gone fashion, her shoulders being discreetly 
covered with silk or mull kerchiefs. She was a famous knitter, 
as well as a charming story teller. 

* Allusion is here made to tlie Phoenix Iron Works. 


Joseph Walker was a large, handsome man, with a ruddy 
complexion, and a kind and cheery manner. Residing at the 
homestead, and being near the meeting-house, of \yhich he in- 
herited the office of care-taker, all the stranger Friends came to 
his house, where a hearty welcome was always accorded them. 
In his day the Quaker preachers traveled all over the country 
on mission work, sometimes in carriages, sometimes on horse- 
back, and whenever they came near the Valley they turned aside 
to make their home with Joseph Walker for a few days. He 
sometimes preached in small meetings ; though he was not 
endowed with the gift of eloquence, he was what is called "an 
accepted minister." He and Joseph Davis sat at the head of the 
Valley Meeting in the galler>', and, in the absence of visiting 
preachers, had a few words to say. Their example as God- 
fearing, honest men and courteous gentlemen had possibly more 
effect on their hearers than the words they uttered. 

During Joseph Walker's occupancy of the homestead the 
house was extensively changed. A kitchen was added to the 
north side, and the former kitchen was converted into a sitting- 
room, while the quaint old room which had served for meetings 
of worship in Lewis Walker's time, and had been the family 
room for over a century, was transformed into a dining-room. 
The bed-rooms in the old part of the house were also changed. 

Joseph and Priscilla Walker, along with six of their children, 
are buried in the graveyard at the top of the hill. They had 
eight children :

No. 250. Hananiah Walker^ ( Isaac,"* Joseph,'' Isaac, ^ 
Lewis ^ ), born at "Rehobeth," Tredyffrin Township, Chester 
County, Penna., 2d mo. 2d, 1782, died at "The Meadows," in 
the same township in the year 1822, of typhus fever, a disease 
epidemic at that time in the vicinity. He married Jane, born 
1783, daughter of David and Susanna (Malin) Havard, of Tredyf- 
frin Township. In 18 13, Hananiah Walker made acknowledg- 
ment to the Radnor Monthly Meeting for " marrying out," and 
a year later his wife did the same. 

The Havards were among the earliest settlers of Chester 
County, the first on record being John Havard, who took up a 
large tract of land lying between Howellville and New Centre- 
ville about the commencement of the i8th century. This tract 
comprised the farms of the late William Ritter, David Wilson, 
William Roberts, and William Davis as well as that owned by 
A. J. Cassatt, called " Chester Brook," which until recently 
was the property of David Havard. 

The family came originally from Wales, but from what part 
of the Principality is not known. In the " Pennsylvania Archives," 


3d Series, Vol. XIX., we learn that, "By virtue of a letter of 
Attorney under the hands of the said Joseph and Mary Lloyd, of 
the town of and county of Haverford West, cordwainer, dated 
30th, 1st mo., 1690, Granted 100 acres to Mary Havard, widow 
of David Havard, deceased." This would seem to indicate that 
they came from Pembrokeshire. There are Havards now living 
in Narberth, which is only a few miles from Haverford West. 
Again, in the same volume of the " Pennsylvania Archives," we 
come across the name, when "4th mo. 5th, 1696, Hannah and 
John Parson sold 210 acres to David Havard, dying intestate, left 
his son, John, heir to the said land, to whom Mary, his mother, 
relict of the said David, and the said Hannah, relict of John Day 
and now wife to James Atkinson, requested it may be confirmed 
b\- patent." This was done at a Session of the Commissioners 
of Philadelphia, 3d mo. loth, 1701. (This was part of John 
Day's grant of 1250 acres given 6th mo. 19th, 168 1.) Again, in 
Minute Book G, "Signed a patent to David Harvard for 229 
acres." I cannot account for this anachronism of David Havard 
being dead in 1690. and buj-ing land in 1696, except it be 
another David Havard. We know there was one of that name, 
a " glover," who had a daughter Ann, who married John Powell, 
cooper, I ith mo. 12th, 1696. The marriage was witnessed by 
John and David Havard. (Radnor Meeting Records.) 

John Havard. son and heir of David and Mary Havard, born 
in Wales, 1674, married, 1706, Margaret, daughter of John and 
Elizabeth Lewis, of Haverford. He was executor to her father's 
estate. There is in the family a Church of England prayer-book, 
dated 1656, that was the property of Margaret Lewis. They 
Hved in the house recently occupied by David Havard, near 
Howellville, which is still standing. Margaret, the wife of John 
Havard, died in 1712, leaving two daughters: Mar)', born 1709, 
who married, 1738, Herbert Thomas (see No. 112); and Mar- 


garet, born 171 i, who married, loth mo. 27th, 1762, John 
Hibberd. John Havard married second, Sarah Evans, and had 
John, born 1714; Ann, 1716; f^annah, 1718; Elizabeth, 1720; 
Sarah, 1721 ; David, 1723, died 1724; (?) Samuel, 1726, and 
Benjamin, 1729. (Radnor Meeting Records.) 

John, the son of John and Sarah (Evans) Havard, married 
Miriam Thomas. A house was built for them on a part of the 
Havard tract, which was afterwards occupied by their grand- 
children, William Davis and his sisters ; a portion of the farm 
was also given to them. They had but one child, Mary, who 
married William Davis. This property was put up for sale on 
the death of the last child of William and Mary (Havard) Davis, 
and it was bought by David Havard, the former owner of 
" Chester Brook." During the winter of 1777-8, General the 
Count Du Portails had his headquarters at the house of John 
Havard, and has left his name cut upon one of the panels of 
a door. 

David, another son of John and Sarah (Evans) Havard, mar- 
ried Susanna Malin. (There must be a mistake in the record or 
else another son was born after the death of the Da\-id who died 
in 1724.) They lived at the homestead and inherited the farm 
of 300 acres that went with it. They had three children : Sarah, 
born 1775, married Jonathan Miller; Benjamin, born 1780, mar- 
ried Mary Jones ; and Jane, who married Hananiah Walker. 

The other son of John and Sarah (Evans) Havard, who lived 
to grow up, was Samuel, who, with his two unmarried sisters, 
lived in the house on the other side of the creek, which was 
recently the home of William Ritter. He never married, and at 
his death, in 1808, left his land, the Ritter and Wilson farms, to 
his nephew, Dr. John Havard Davis, from whom it was after- 
wards sold by the sheriff. It is said that this same nephew 
inherited, along with the land, thirty thousand dollars in silver, 


which was as much as three men could carry. The two sisters, 
Hannah and Sarah Havard, willed all of their property to their 
nephew, Benjamin Havard, who gave it to his only daughter, 
Susan, who married William Roberts (No. 680), who is the 
present owner. 

Benjamin and Mary (Jones) Havard had a son David, before 
mentioned, who married Mary Reinhart. They lived at the old 
home until it was sold, and there all, except the last one of his 
children, who is the child of his second wife, were born. His 
eldest daughter, Lydia, married Abijah Stephens, the son of 
William M. and Susan (Davis) Stephens (see No. 267). His 
other children are Frank, John, David, Lewis, Charles, Ellen and 
Wade Havard. 

Elizabeth, daughter of John and Sarah (Evans) Havard mar- 
ried at "Tredyffrin :Meeting, ist mo. 3d, 1753," John, son of 
John Jacobs, of Providence, which marriage was witnessed by 
John, Sarah, Hannah and Samuel Havard. It is recorded also 
that " David Powell, of Philadelphia, surveyor, and Mary 
Havard, of Merion, widow," were married in 1706. Witnesses, 
John, William and ]^Iargaret Havard. This William Havard 
who signed the certificate must have been a member of the- 
family also; he married loth mo., 1712," Captain Roche's 
daughter, Elizabeth." William Davis, Justice of the Peace of 
Chester County, married them. 

Henry Woodman, heretofore extensively quoted, says in his 
" History of Valley Forge " that General Lafayette took up his 
quarters with Samuel Havard, who lived on Valley Creek, two 
miles south of Washington's headquarters, and "that a friendly 
intercourse" was kept up between him and the Baron De Kalb, 
who was at the house of Abijah Stephens, lower down the 
Valley. From the same authority we learn that General Knox 
lived with John Havard, whose property extended towards 


Valley Forge on " both sides of the Baptist road," and that 
General Lee was quartered with David Havard. 

Though the Havards were Quakers, they owned slaves, and 
when it became obligatory in the Society to free their negroes or 
forfeit their membership, which was about the year 1750, David 
Havard gave his their freedom. It is said though they accepted 
their freedom they all returned to the old home to die. It is 
characteristic of the family that they took them in, as they have 
always been noted for their kindness to the poor and the dis- 
tressed, as well as for their hospitality to their friends. 

There was a Havard family in Wales that occupied a promi- 
nent place in its history at one time, and although we have found 
nothing to connect them with the Chester County Havards, yet 
the similarity of names leads one to think that they are of the 
same origin. In " The Visitation of Wales," 1 591, we read: 
" In 1092, Bernard Newmarch, or Nova Mercata, followed the 
example of other Norman Knights, and crossed over from 
France to Wales, wasting the country in Breconshire and put- 
ting all that opposed him to the sword. He took possession of 
various choice lands and gave others to his followers. To one 
of these, Sir Walter Havard, he gave the Castle of Pontwilym, 
where for many generations they resided in considerable,affluence. 
The name of Havard appears to be a corruption of De Havre, or 
Havre de Grace, at the mouth of the Seine in Normandy." 
(Havre signifies mouth.) 

In I 591 Lawrens Havard prepared a family record for the 
Herald, who made a visitation in Wales at that time. When 
this occurred all manner of persons who pretended to the use of 
anus, or were styled esqidrcs or gentlemen, had to appear before 
him and show by what authority they claimed the distinction. 
They were ordered to bring their arms, crests, pedigrees and 
descents, " and such evidence of ancient writing as may justify 


the same." As long as the laws of chiv^alry were honored this 
custom was continued, and without it many pedigrees would 
have been lost. After 1688 it was discontinued, partly by the 
incompetency and dishonesty of the persons deputed by the 
Heralds to collect information. The earliest of the published 
records is 1529, and they were collected about every twenty-five 
years. Sometimes a family would neglect it by reason of poverty, 
for there was a tax to pay, and sometimes they let it fall into 
desuetude, as in the time of Cromwell, for conscientious reasons. 
The Quakers, following the example of the early Christians, 
looked upon all such things as worldly pride. They gave up the 
outward sign of noble birth, and frequently cut themselves off 
from every member of their family who was of another religious 
way of thinking. For that reason many of the Pennsylvanians 
left their coats-of-arnis in the old world, though entitled to bear 

The record prepared by Lawrens Havard contains eleven 
generations, commencing with Sir Peter Hafart, of the time of 
William Rufus, who would probably be a son of Sir Walter. It 
runs thus : David and his brother John Havard, son of Larens, 
son of Hary, son of Thomas, son of Wiliam, son of Wiliam, 
son of Meredyedd, son of Madog, son of Gwalter, son of John, 
son of Sir Peter Hafart. 

Another "Visitation " of 1597 gives: Pyrs Havard, son of 
Thomas, son of John of Radnor, son of Piers, son of John, son 
of Hywel, son of Stephen, son of Davydd, son of Llewelyn 
Crygeryr, who married Jonet, daughter and heir of Thomas 

The arms of this old Welsh family are very simple, — a 
roughly executed bull's head, the motto, "In deo spes." One 
of the mottoes of a branch of the family is, " Hafardiad pen tarw 
kock a thair ser aur." I have seen the arms carved on the east 


end of the " Vicars Chapel " in the old Priory Church at Brecon, 
Wales. This Chapel was erected by the Havards, and in the 
time of Queen Elizabeth was known as the " Havard Chapel." 
The initials B. H. are carved above it. The arms appear on 
several tombs of the old church. Indeed, this part of Wales was 
the home of the family for generations. The old castle of Pont- 
wilym was near Brecon, and Brecon Castle, the stronghold of 
Bernard Newmarch, though in ruins, still dominates the town. 

From "Antiquities of Glamorganshire " : "There camemanie 
gentlemen with the said Bernard Newmarch, among them, the 
Havards of the Manour of Pontwilym." "The Havards after 
sixteen generations removed to Dolhaidd, and afterwards to 
Goitre, Carmarthenshire." "A name which has been familiar in 
Breconshire ever since surnames were invented." " Pontwilym, 
where the Havards for many ages held sway." 

From " County Families of Wales," by Thomas Nicholas, 
Vol. I., page 89: Havard, "for many generations resided in 
considerable affluence at Pontwilym. In the 8th generation 
Madog Havard married a Welsh lady of the family of Einion 
Sais, ancestor of Sir David Gam." * 

"Thomas Havard served as sheriff of Breconshire, 1543, 
'49, '56, but the name does not afterwards appear. About the 
1 6th generation, the family for some reason or other left Pont- 
wilym, and probably the principal branch left Breconshire, for we 
find no mention of them henceforth at Pontwilym. John, the son 
of the sheriff, who is said to have married a daughter of Llewelyn 
ap Rhys, of Peytyn Gwyn, and who is not called ' of Pontwilym,' 
had a son Harry, of Dolhaidd, County Carmarthan, and his 
grandson Harry, is called 'of Goitre in Emlyn.' This Harry

married Mary, daughter of Rev. Morris Williams, vicar of 
Llangelen, 1613. In about six generations after him the name 
disappears in Carmarthenshire, through failure of male issue. 
In Breconshire, in junior branches it exists longer, and is pos- 
sibly not yet extinct. The site of the ancestral mansion is 
still dimly visible in the depression of a moat which sur- 
rounded it." 

There was a Sir William Havard, Knight, of Cardiff, Gla- 
morganshire, in 1586. Thomas Havard lived in Radnor town 
in 1597. In 1 591 a Da\"id Havard had brothers and sisterS 
named John, Ffylib, Nickolas, Ann, Mari, Marged, and Elsbeth. 

On or before his marriage with Jane Havard, Hananiah 
Walker gave up the business of hatter, to which trade he had 
serv^ed an apprenticeship with his uncle Lewis Walker, in Phila- 
delphia, and went to farming. He bought the property adjoin- 
ing that of his brother Joseph, from Helen, a daughter of John 
Miller, and called it "The ]\Ieadows," John Miller had bought 
it from William Godfrey, who inherited it from his father, 
Thomas Godfrey, who came here from Wales in 1708. The 
house in which the Godfreys lived was torn down some thirty or 
more years ago. It had served as a tenant house for John 
Miller, who had built himself a new dwelling close by, which is 
now the residence of the Walker family. 

To this " new house" came Hananiah and Jane Walker, and 
here their children were born, but all too soon both the father 
and mother died, leaving four children to the guardianship of 
their uncle, Joseph Walker. An aunt, Rachel W^alker (No. 256), 
lived with them until her marriage. 

The children of Hananiah and Jane (Havard) W'alker were : 

No. 675. I. Havard ^ Walker, born 7th mo. 3d, 18 15, married 
Martha Potts. 


No, 676. II. Lewis ^ Walker, born ist mo. 27th, 18 17, died

the birth of her only child.

No. 252. Mary Walker ^ (Isaac,* Joseph,^ Isaac,'^ Lewis ^), 
born at " Rehobeth," Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, 
Penna., 6th mo. 22d, 1785, married, 12th mo. 20th, 1809, 
Joseph Roberts, son of William and Rebecca Roberts, of Charles- 
town Township, Chester County, Penna. Joseph Roberts was 
born 8th mo. 7th, 1786. He was grandson of Hugh and Jonne 
Roberts, of Merion. He died several years before his wife. 
Hugh Roberts married Jane, daughter of Owen ap Evans (see 
No. 5), according to some authorities. 

Mary W. Roberts was a woman whom every one loved and 
delighted to honor. She was singularly sympathetic and kind 
to everybody, and of a social disposition, which delighted in 
giving and receiving visits. She helped keep alive the feeling of 
kinship among her relations, and the notes collected by her were 
the nucleus of this genealogy. She had a good memory, and 
knew the youngest amongst us as well as she knew our earlier 
ancestors. She seemed the connecting link between the genera- 
tions. She had known her grandfather, born 1731, as well as 
his mother, born 171 3, who died 1802 ; therefore her stories of 
" old times " were valuable and interesting. She might well have 
been called "the family minstrel." She would recite old ballads, 
commemorative of local events, — those composed by her uncle, 
" Billie " Thomas, being the favorites. She lived to a good old 


age, her mind active to the last, as her heart was full of love. 
Joseph and Mary (Walker) Roberts had eight children :

riage took place at the Friends' Meeting, Schuylkill Township, 
3d mo. 20th, 1828. William Hallowell was a descendant of 
John and Mary Hallowell, who came from Hucknow, Parish of 
Sutton, Nottinghamshire, England, in 1682, and settled at 
Abington, Penna. William Hallowell was a widower, living on 
his farm in Plymouth Township, to which home he took his wife, 
Jane, with her children, and there they resided the rest of their 
lives. They both lived to be quite aged. Caleb Hallowell, the 
only surviving son of William and Jane, inherited this property 
at his father's death. William and Jane Hallowell had three 
children :

Jones, who was his second wife's niece. Richard Walker lived for 
the greater part of his married life at the " Wayne Headquarters 
farm," which his father had purchased of the estate on the death 
of Joseph Walker. Some time in the "fifties" he gave this 
property up to the management of his son Ivins, and removed 
to a small farm near by, where he resided the remainder of his life. 

* Eli Yaraall married Elizabeth, daughter of William Yarnall, and lived at West 
Chester, Penna. Was this a second marriage, or was it another man ? There is on 
record a Priscilla Eli Yarnall, born 12th mo. 28th, 1812, died 3d mo. 27th, 1831. 


He was interested in other business affairs besides that of 
farming, one of which was that of lime burning at Port Kennedy, 
He was early afflicted with rheumatic gout, an hereditary disease, 
which rendered him for many years dependent upon crutches in 
walking. He was a handsome man, beloved by every one with 
whom he associated. His last wife, Sarah Ann, survived him. 
They are buried in the Valley Graveyard. Richard and Sarah

No. 266. William Walker^ (Thomas,* Joseph,-^ Isaac,^ 
Lewis ^), born in Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, Penna., 
Feb. 8th, 1795, died at " Rehobeth Spring," March loth, 1873. 
He was married, Jan. 28th, 18 17, by Parson Clay, to Sarah 
Pennypacker, born Feb. 28th, 1797, died at "Rehobeth Spring," 
Jan. 17th, 1878. She was the daughter of Mathias and Mary 
(Maris) Pennypacker (nee Longaker, daughter of David Long- 
aker), of Charlestown Township, Chester County, Penna. 

The Pennypacker family is descended from Hendrick Panne- 











becker, who was born in Holland, probably in Flomborn, about 
1674, and came to Pennsylvania before 1702, where he died 
April 4th, 1754. He married, 1699, in Germantown, Pa., Eve, 
daughter of Hans Peter Umstat, who arrived in Philadelphia on 
the "Francis & Dorothy," Oct. 12th, 1685. This ship sailed 
from London, Richard Bridgeman commanding. Hans Peter 
was son of Nicholas Umstat, who died at Crefeldt on the Rhine, 
1682. Hans Peter died 1702. 

Hendrick Pannebecker settled about Wernersvalle, Penna. 
(For more particulars see " The Pennypacker Pedigree," by 
Judge S. W. Pennypacker.) His son, Jacob, born 17 15, died 
1752, married Margaret Tyson, daughter of Mathias (died 1766) 
and Barbara Tyson, and granddaughter of Cornelius and Mar- 
garet Tyson. Mathias Pennypacker, son of Jacob and Margaret 
(Tyson) Pennypacker, born Oct. 14th, 1742, father of Sarah 
Walker, was a noted Mennonite preacher. 

According to an entry in his father's note-book, " William 
and Sarah moved to the Lower place, 4th mo. 3d, 18 17." The 
dwelling-house, known as " Rehobeth Spring," was built by 
Enoch Walker, and was occupied by him for a time. The farm 
is a part of the original Walker tract, and lies bet^veen " Reho- 
beth " and the " Wayne Headquarters farm." William Walker 
lived here for more than fifty years. He was a prosperous 
farmer, a man of genial disposition, and much hospitality was 
dispensed in the old rambling farm-house by him and his family. 
His wife, Sarah Walker, had the reputation of having been the 
prettiest girl in Charlestown Township, and no one would doubt 
it who looked at her in her beautiful old ao;e. She has trans- 
mitted her good looks to her children along with her warm- 
hearted, social disposition. They celebrated their golden 
wedding in 1867, surrounded by a number of children, grand- 
children, and great-grandchildren. They are buried in the 


Valley Graveyard beside their two youngest children, who died 

before them. They had ten children :

1820, Stephen Stephens, of the same township, born iith mo. 
5th, 1795, died 3d mo. 19th, 1872. He was a son of Stephen 
and Sarah (MacVeagh) Stephens. 


The Stephens family are among the earliest settlers of 
Chester County, and some members of it still occupy the land 
purchased by their ancestor from William Penn, They have 
been associated \vith the Walkers from the earliest times, both in 
business and social relations, and the two families have so fre- 
quently intermarried that the histor}- of one is almost the history 
of the other. 

Lewis Walker and Stephen Bevans were the originators of 
the \^alley ^Meeting in 171 4. Stephen Evans (or Bevans) with 
Daniel and Isaac Walker were the pioneers in the iron industry' 
of Pennsylvania. The forge they started at ]\It. Joy for its 
manufacture gave the name of Valley Forge to the place. (See 
Penna. Alaga., Vol. XVII., p. 93.) Stephen Evans' name is 
attached as a witness to Lewis Walker's will, as well as to several 
of the wedding certificates belonging to the family. 

The earliest ancestor of whom the present generation has any 
definite knowledge is Evan ap Evan, or Evan Bevan, who had 
a large grant of land (tradition says 2000 acres) in the Welsh 
tract. This included the farms now owned by William Fisher, 
the late Abraham Beidler, James Chatwin, Lewis Piersol and 
W^illiam Stephens. Henr\- Woodman, in his " Histor}' of Valley 
Forge,"* says : "The original tract, containing upwards of 2000 
acres, was taken up by Evan ap Bevan, or Evaniah Be\an, a native 
of Radnorshire, in the Principality of Whales, about the year 1686. 

"Whether he emigrated to this countr}- or not, I cannot say 
with certainty, but from ha\ang seen his name to certain title 
deeds, I have come to the conclusion that he must have resided 
for several of the last years of his life in this, then, Province of 
Pennsylvania. One thing is certain, that he was the original

by Henrj' Woodman, a descendant of Evan ap Evan. They were published in a Bucks 
County newspaper, and have been preserved by a member of the family in a scrapbook. 


ancestor of the Stephens family, since very numerous in that 
part of the country, and some branches of the family now in 
possession of a part of other land granted to him years ago. 

" I have always understood that this was the first forge 
(Valley Forge) for the manufacture of iron in the Province, and 
was first commenced by Stephen Evans, a son of the aforesaid 
Evan ap Bevan, and Isaac Walker, a son of Lewis, the original 
ancestor of the Walker family, since, and at this time composing 
a numerous and respectable portion of the inhabitants of that 
part of the country, some of them now being in possession of the 
original portion of land granted to him in 1684." 

Stephen Bevan, the son of Evan ap Evan, changed his name 
to Stephen Evans. In the Radnor Monthly Meeting Records 
we may see the register of his marriage. It says : Stephen 
Evans, of Tredyffrin, batchelor, married Mary Davis, spinster, 
daughter of William, of Upper Merion, 9th mo. 12th, 17 18. He 
took his wife to Tredyffrin, where a house was erected near by 
the present Stephens homestead, now owned by the Fisher 
family, and here they lived, farming the large tract of land he 
had inherited from his father. He had a brother David, as will 
be seen on reading his will, who probably shared in his father's 
estate. From "Abstract of Wills," at Penna. Hist. Soc. : " Stephen 
Evans, of Chester Co., Yeoman : his wife Mary, sons, Jesse and 
Abijah, executors. His children, David, Ruth (Hayle), Benja- 
min, Abijah, and Jesse : grand-daughter Prudence Hayle. 
Trustees, his brother David and Thomas Waters. Witnesses : 
David Stephens, Thomas Waters and William Godfrey. Signed, 
Feb. 2 1 St. 1754. Proved, June 12th, 1754." 

In the will of David Lewis, 1752, he mentions his friends 
Abijah, Jesse and Benjamin Stephens, and Stephen Evans is 
appointed one of the executors. Of these children, Abijah 
Stephens married Priscilla Thomas, daughter of Thomas Thomas. 


(See No. 46.) The wedding was witnessed by Mary, David, 
Elizabeth and Hannah Stephens, William, Hezekiah, Philip and 
Rebekah Thomas and others. David, another son of Stephen 
Evans, married Elizabeth Edwards, daughter of Maurice and 
Eleanor Edwards. David lived near Valley Forge, in the house 
now occupied by his descendant, William Stephens. His wife, 
an only child, inherited a large farm adjoining, now owned by 
Mr. Pearsoll. They had three children : ^Maurice Stephens ; 
Abijah Stephens, married Elizabeth Moore ; and Eleanor Steph- 
ens, who married Jacob Richardson, of Valley Forge. 

Abijah Stephens, in course of time, built a larger house for 
his family near the old one. He was a prosperous farmer, and 
much respected in the neighborhood. He and his wife were 
worthy people, and, like other residents of that section of 
countr)', they were intimately associated with the American 
Army at Valley Forge. It is said that every- bit of rail fence on 
the Stephens farm was burnt by the soldiers for fire wood dur- 
ing that memorable winter of 'yy and 'j8. Various other heavy 
losses were sustained by them. He had what is called " a dft 
in medicine." He had the title of " Doctor," though he had 
never studied at any college for the degree, and his ser\'ices 
were highly appreciated by the soldiers at the camp. He made 
a salve, noted for its healing powers, that was much in requisi- 
tion, the receipt of which is still in the family and still used. His 
services as a physician were always given gratuitously and his 
posterity was taught to do the same. As one of his descendants 
remarks, in furnishing me with incidents relating to her family : 
" That is perhaps the reason that none of us have ever risen to 
wealth." There are some interesting stories related of the family 
that were sent me by Mrs. Lydia W. (Stephens) Hillis, which I 
take pleasure in inserting : 



' ' Washington having decided to encamp for the winter at Valley Forge, 
sent some of his officers in advance to secure headquarters for the different 
commanders. The utmost secrecy in regard to their movements 1)eing 
necessary, they could give but little warning, except to pass through the 
neighborhood and write upon the doors of the different houses the name of 
the General who expected to occupy it. Upon my grandfather's door they 
wrote 'Headquarters of General Wheeden.' Knowing the famished 
condition of the soldiers, my grandmother prepared a large pot of soup — 
they having killed a beef a few days before — and baked from a large tub of 
buckwheat batter a quantity of cakes. Upon these, with accompanying 
vegetables, the soldiers were feasting when General Wheeden arrived, and 
he, being of a very inhuman disposition, swore at them for entering the 
house before his arrival, striking some with his sword, all fleeing from him 
in abject terror. Regardless of the threats of the commanding officer, my 
grandmother ordered the soldiers to carry the vessels of soup into the 
yard, and there they devoured their meal, as ' described by my grand- 
parents, ' like ravenous beasts,' so great was their hunger. 

" Happily, General Wheeden' s reign was of short duration. His 
successor was Baron De Kalb, between whom and my grandfather a warm 
friendship was formed. Many letters passed between them afterwards, 
none of which have been preserved, except a letter of introduction which 
was brought by a friend of the Baron, Captain Du Ponceau, of Philadelphia, 
who was seeking country air in quest of health." 

Sarah S, Walker, wife of Moses Walker (No. 670), and great- 
grand-daughter of Abijah Stephens, has seen the original letter 
of introduction, and fortunately had a copy of it along with some 
explanatory remarks clipped from a newspaper : 


" During the time when the American Army was encamped at Valley 
Forge in 1777-8, the Baron De Kalb, who held the rank of Major-General, 
and who was afterwards killed at the first battle of Camden in South Caro- 
lina, had his headquarters at the house of a gentleman, named Abijah 
Stephens, not far from the historical camp-ground. 

" After the Army had left this part of the country, the Baron gave a 


friend a letter of introduction to Mr. Stephens, some copies of which are still 
in existence. This is the letter : 

" ' Philadelphia, April 12th, 1780. 

• ■ ' Sir : — Captain Du Ponceau, a particular friend of mine, going to 
Valley Forge for change of air and the recovery of his health, and being un- 
acquainted with the country, I shall take it as a very peculiar favor if you can 
and will do him the service to introduce him into some neighboring houses. 
I shall be glad to hear from you and your family. I hope they are all well. 
Though I was very poorly, yet when I left you in 1778, I recovered so well 
during the campaign that I have been hearty ever since. Colonel Dubuison, 
whom I left in camp in Morristown, is well. Major Rogers left the army 
in October, 1778, and is since at home in Baltimore. I am to set out for 
South Carolina in a short time. Could have wished to call on you before, 
but do not think I have it in my power. 

" ' I wish you all happiness, wealth and prosperity, and am, sir, your 
very humble servant, The Baron De Kalb, Major-General. 

" ' To Mr. Stephens, by favor of Captain Du Ponceau, near Valley 

When the Hessian troops passed through the Valley they 
visited the Stephens homestead, an account of which has been 
furnished me by Mrs. Hillis in the following words : " When 
the family saw the Hessians approaching they secured such 
articles of value as they could, among them a set of silver spoons, 
which they placed in the pocket of grandfather's mother (Mary 
Davis Stephens), who was then very old and in her dotage. The 
first act of the Hessians was to seize grandfather by the collar, 
draw a dagger and rob him of his watch. Their actions, of 
course, alarmed the old lady, who kept feeling in her pocket and 
exclaiming, ' Prissie, does thee think the spoons are safe ? ' For- 
tunately the soldiers did not understand English, though, with 
all their rudeness, they seemed to respect old age, taking her 
affectionately by the hand and calling her ' M udder '." 

The old arm-chair in which " Grandmother Stephens " sat 
when the Hessians invaded the premises is now owned by 


Thomas Thomas, of Philadelphia, who received it from his 
mother, Mary H. Thomas, of Norristown, Penna., who is a 
descendant of Abijah Stephens through the Woodman family. 

Abijah and Priscilla (Thomas) Stephens had seven children, 
who, it will be noticed, retained the name of Stephens, after the 
English manner, instead of taking Abijah for their patronimic, 
which was the Welsh custom, and which the family had hitherto 
adopted. Their only son, Stephen, married Sarah MacVeagh, 
daughter of Jeremiah and Eleanor (Evans) MacVeagh, 4th mo, 
27th, 1 79 1. They were married at the Valley Meeting-house. 
(Jeremiah MacVeagh, who married Eleanor Evans, of Gwynedd, 
was an ancestor of the Hon. Wayne MacVeagh.) Stephen 
Stephens inherited the farm, and when he retired from active life 
he built an addition to the house which he occupied, — his son 
Abijah living in the other part of the house, and farming the 
land. He died 8th mo. 31st, 1845. He had Abijah Stephens, 
married, 1st, Eliza Moore; 2d, Esther Rogers; Jeremiah 
Stephens, married Mary Lincoln ; Stephen Stephens, married 
Hannah Walker ; Eleanor Stephens, married Joseph Davis, of 
Tredyffrin Township ; and Priscilla Stephens, married Cyrus C. 

Sarah, the daughter of Abijah and Priscilla Stephens, mar- 
ried Edward Woodman ; Mary, married Samuel Rossiter ; Eliza- 
beth, married Philip Reese ; Priscilla, married Jacob Rogers ; 
Rebecca, unmarried ; Anna, married Enoch Richards. 

Abijah, the son of David Stephens, of Valley Eorge, mar- 
ried Elizabeth Moore ; their son, William M., married, ist, Susan 
Davis, the sister of Joseph Davis, before mentioned ; 2d, Han- 
nah Hall ; William Stephens, the present owner of the Valley 
Forge farm, is a son by the first marriage. 

Eleanor, daughter of David and sister of Abijah Stephens, 
of Valley Forge, married Jacob Richardson, and had Rebecca, 


Avho married Jacob Massey, and was the mother of Charles D. 
Massey (see No. 718), Isaac R. Massey (see No. 724), and 
Eleanor, who married Thomas U. Walker (No. 712). Eleanor 
was also the mother of Isaac, more generally known as Squire 

Abijah, the son of Stephen and Sarah (MacVeagh) Stephens, 
married ist, Eliza, daughter of Isaac and Miriam (Wells) Moore 
and grand-daughter of Mordecai Moore, of Montgomery County, 
Penna. Miriam Wells' father owned the farm now rented by 
Jacob H. Beidler (No. 1539), in Montgomery County, Penna. 
Eliza (Moore) Stephens died in 1833. Her children were : Maiy 
MacVeagh, who married Charles Thomas, of Chester Valley. 
(She is an accepted minister in the Society of Friends, and 
resides, since her widowhood, in Norristown, Penna.) ; Isaac 
Moore; Stephen, died 1871 ; Anna Moore, died in infancy; 
Rachel MacVeagh, died in infancy ; Lydia Wells, married David 
Hillis, of Norristown, Penna. She is of a literary turn of mind, 
several books of her verses having been published. I am 
indebted to her for a great deal of the information which is here 
given of the Stephens family. She taught school for some years 
before her marriage. In 1835 Abijah Stephens married his 
second wife, Esther Rogers. Two children, Jacob Rogers and 
Priscilla, were born to them before his death, which occurred in 


On Abijah Stephen's death, his brother, Stephen Stephens, 

with whom this article opens, came to the homestead to live, 

and on his father's death, in 1845, he bought the farm. He was 

the last of his name to occupy it, as it was bought by Charles 

Wells some years afterward, who, after a residence there of 

several years, sold it to Mr. Fisher, whose son is the present 

owner. It is an interesting old house, in excellent repair, and 

good for another century of usefulness. Stephen and Hannah 



(Walker) Stephens moved to a small house quite near the old 
homestead, to which was attached a small farm, and here they 
passed the remainder of their days in comfort and peace. After 
a married life of more than fifty years, Stephen Stephens died of 
an apoplectic stroke in the spring of 1872. His wife died in 
Philadelphia at the residence of her son, William, Sept. loth, 
1 88 1, and both are buried in the Valley Graveyard, where all 
their ancestors in this country had preceded them. They had

The Cleaver family of Montgomery County is descended 
from William, who married Mary Knight, and who lived near 
the King of Prussia, in the same county, on the farm now owned 
by Mr. Austin Taggert. They were Friends, and both are buried 
in the Valley Graveyard. Their son, Jonathan Cleaver, married 
Rebecca Ivins, and succeeded his father at the homestead. They

William Cleav^er and his wife went to live at " Bellwood 


Farm," in Montgomery County, Penna. This place belonged 
originally to Thomas and Ann (Bartholemew) Waters, who be- 
queathed it to their daughter, Eleanor Brinton. It was bought 
from her by Jonathan Cleaver, the son of William, above men- 
tioned, at whose death it was inherited by his son, William, the hus- 
band of Jane Thomas. He resided there the remainder of his life, 
and it is now owned and occupied by his grand-son-in-law, Hugh 
De Haven, and his daughters. This farm joins that of Joseph 
Walker (the sixth generation of the Walker family owning both 
estates). The house occupies a fine position on the hill and is 
one of the most imposing residences in the neighborhood. It is 
over a hundred years old and has been kept in excellent repair. 
Jane W. Cleaver survived her husband many years, dying a few 
years ago, over eighty years old. Both she and her husband

Nov. 2d, 183 1, Eliza Ann Brooke, daughter of Abner and 
Mercy (Kinsey) Brooke, and granddaughter of Mahlon Kinsey, 
of Chester County. 

Isaac Walker received the rudiments of his education in the 
school-house that his father had built upon the place, and of 
which he was for a time the instructor. He afterwards attended 
the Friends' Grammar School at Sadsbur}^ At the earnest 
solicitation of his mother he learned the trade of a tanner and 
currier. His father broke ground on the old farm to build a 
tan-yard for him, the old vats are still there, but in 1830 he 
purchased a tannery in Sadsbury, near to the village of Smyrna, 
which he afterwards founded, and where he combined the busi- 
ness of merchant with that of tanner. In the winter of 1839, 
under the administration of Governor Porter, he was appointed 
to the charge of the Gap Division of the Philadelphia and Col- 
umbia Railroad, in which position he continued for five years. 
In October, 1847, he purchased a part of the home farmstead, 
near the Gap, where for more than thirty years he was engaged 
in farming. In 1872, he bought the " Penn Spring," and erected 
a monument there commemorative of the Founder. He also 
bought the " Shawnee Garden," the home of his mother's ances- 


tors, where he built three houses. He continued in active busi- 
ness, that of merchant and farmer, up to the time of his death, 
which occurred on the sixty-first anniversary of his marriage. 
He and his wife celebrated their Golden Wedding in 1881. 

Isaac Walker was noted " for his rare knowledge of matters 
pertaining to the early settlement of Lancaster County, and has 
written considerably on the early history of the south eastern 
section of the county." (See " Biographical History of Lancas- 
ter County," by Harris.) He was conceded to be one of the 
best local historians of the day, and the most of his leisure time 
was spent in writing for the newspapers on this subject. He was 
also a student of the Bible, and was remarkably well posted in 
ancient history. 

It is interesting to notice the ancestry of Isaac W^alker. His 
great-great-grandfathers were all pioneers in the Province of 
Pennsylvania, and men of reputation in their locality and of their 
time. They were : ist, Lewis Walker ; 2d, Andrew Moore, one 
of the first settlers of Lancaster County, in 1723 ; 3d, Jeremiah 
Starr, a first settler of New Garden, and a member of the Prov- 
incial Assembly in 1740. (He and his wife, Rebecca, emigrated 
from Ireland. Their daughter, Ann, married James Moore, son 
of Andrew) ; 4th, Guion Miller, who was one of the first settlers 
of Kennett Square, Chester County ; 5th, Isaac Taylor, one of 
the surveyors of William Penn. (He helped to make the 
boundary line between Lancaster and Chester Counties. He was 
the original purchaser of all the land in the Gap, and the first 
stone house erected there was built by him. He was also a 
member of the Provincial Assembly from Chester County from 
1705 to 1723) ; 6th, Nathan Newlin, a member of the conven- 
tion which framed the old Constitution of Pennsylvania, whose 
daughter, Mary, married Gains, son of, 7th, Joseph Dickinson, 
an early settler of Salisbury Township ; 8th, Edward Jerman, of 


Philadelphia, who died in 17 14, and whose daughter, Sarah, 
married Isaac Walker (No. 8).

Joseph Walker is president of the Gap National Bank, of 
Lancaster County, and a member of the Commercial Exchange 
of Philadelphia. He is an enthusiastic genealogist, and has 
assisted in collecting and arranging the various members of his 
branch of the family. His interest in his ancestry commenced 
many years ago, and he has given much attention to the subject. 
He has looked up the different Walkers in Great Britain who 
are mentioned in the encyclopedias and biographies, and finding 
there was one in the law, one an iron-master, and one an agricul- 
turist, each of which had achieved success, he is of the opinion 
that our family might belong to that of the latter because we 
have always been more or less interested in the cultivation of the 
land. This theory is a very plausible one, and worth inquiring 
into. There was a John Walker, of Dairy, belonging to a Mid- 
lothian family of the same name, who is celebrated as the person 
"who first introduced the system of fallowing land or of thor- 
oughly revising wheat crops. He was a person of great intelli- 
gence and enterprise, and set an example of superior farm culture 
to his neighbors." (See " Landed Gentry of Great Britain and 
Ireland," — Burke. ) He lived in the i8th century. Joseph 
Walker rightly argues that the characteristics of a family would 
develop in some direction, good or bad, for many generations, 
and he thinks that, though we cannot prove it, we are of the 
same blood as this Midlothian family. He reasons that his own 


father was of the t)-pe of John Walker, of Dairy. The Walkers 
are noted for their affection for their ancestral acres, and, though 
many of thcni have entered the professions, there are very few 
who have gone into mercantile business. Joseph Walker is a 
resident of the Gap. He has five children. His eldest son is 
united with him in business, becoming a member of the firm 
in 1880.

He married, 4th mo. 14th, 1841, Mary, daughter of James and 
Elizabeth (Priestman) Baynes. She was born at " Shellcote," 
in " Wood Hall Park," Wensleydale, Yorkshire, England, 7th 
mo. I ith, 18 1 3, died 4th mo. 14th, 1880, at Philadelphia, Penna., 
at the house of her son, Dr. James Baynes Walker, and is buried 
beside her husband in the Valley Graveyard. 

The Baynes family, according to Granger in his " History of 
Nidderdale," was in earlier times one of the most influential in 
Yorkshire. Tradition says it is descended from Donald Bane, 
son of the murdered Duncan, who, on the death of his brother 
Malcolm, claimed the throne of Scotland, as was his right 
according to the, then, Scotch law. Malcolm's son, with the 
assistance of the English, dethroned him after a short reign, and 

2 ^2 -^- ^^7 



Donald was obliged to seek the shelter of the highlands, along 
with his Gaelic chieftains. After some years of desultory fight- 
ing they were driven from Scotland, and, it is said by some 
authorities, came to northern Yorkshire, where the sons of 
Donald founded the family that bears their name. However 
true this may be, the Bayneses are of distinguished and ancient 
lineage, and there are to be found on their family tree many 
names that testify to their worth. In an old pedigree that goes 
back eight hundred years, are warriors, crusaders, nuns, and one 
bishop, while in the later centuries are poets, painters, clergymen, 
and dissenters, both of Church and State. One of Cromwell's 
most trusted officers. Captain Adam Baynes, was of this York- 
shire family and a near relation to the forebears of Mary Baynes 
Walker. This branch lixcd at " Heigh-holm " Hall, near Kil- 
lington, Westmoreland, which property was owned by them for 
many generations. They have been associated with Yorkshire 
since 1182, when, according to Burke, one of them came there 
from the north and established the famil)'. (See the " Deucator 
Leodientis," " Reitstap," and "Burke's Peerage.") The arms 
are : "Arms sa. A shin bone in fesse surmounted by another 
in pale arg. The crest — a cubit arm. vested, az., cuffed, 
erminois, the hand holding the jaw bone, arg." Motto : 
" Furor arma ministrat." 

When George Fox appeared in Yorkshire preaching the new 
doctrine, William and Joseph Baynes of " Stangerthwait " were 
among the earliest converts to Quakerism, and they suffered much 
in fines and imprisonments for conscience' sake. (See " Piety Pro- 
moted," and " Besse's Sufferings " ). 

In the troubled times of the Commonwealth and for some 
years afterwards the records of church and meeting-house were 
not kept with the care necessary for their preservation, and, 
aithough we know that James Baynes' grandfather was of this 


stock, we cannot find any record of his birth. We simply con- 
jecture that he was a son, born of a second marriage of Joseph 
Baynes of " Stangerthwait," with Barbara Askew, 1691. Joseph 
was born in 1633, and James Baynes in 1700, when his sup- 
posed father was sixty-seven years old. Joseph was son of James 
Baynes, " Yeoman," died 1671, and his wife, Agnes, died 1664, 
of " Killington," Westmoreland. (There are other records of 
the family now extant, and in course of preparation by other 
members of the family in England, which it is not necessary to 
insert in this work.) 

James Baynes, born 1700, died 1772, married, 2d mo. 7th, 
1736, Mary, daughter of Thomas Lambert, of " Blean," a farm- 
house so-called, in Wensleydale overlooking Semerwater. She 
was born 17 1 1, died 1797, and both are buried at Bainbridge, in 
Wensleydale. They had ten children : Mabel, born 1736, mar- 
ried, 1757, Adam Harker ; Thomas, born 1737; James born 
1739, died 1785 ; Maiy, born 1741, married, 1765, Christopher 
Mires ; Margaret, born 1743, married, 1778, John Rickaby ; John, 
born 1744, died 1817, married, 1770, Frances Beezon ; William, 
born 1746; Oswald, born 1748, married, 1777, Mary Lambert; 
Ann, born 1750; Joseph, born 1765, died 1778. 

Frances Beezon, the wife of John Baynes, was daughter of 
John Beezon, of " Wood Hall Park," a farm in Wensleydale, long 
in possession of the Beezon family. John Beezon, in his will 
dated 1773, leaves a " property called Shellcote, on the Scarr, 
north of the Turnpike road leading from Woodhall to Askrig," 
to his daughter Frances Baynes, along with " Wood Hall Park," 
and all the plate and furniture. Frances was born at " Wood 
Hall Park," 1751, and died there, 7th mo. 4th, 1781. She is 
buried in the Quaker graveyard at Aysgarth, not far distant. 
John and Frances (Beezon) Baynes had five children : John 
Beezon, born 1771, at "Wood Hall Park," died 1847, at Wil- 



mingtoii, Delaware, married Miriam Pricstman ; Hannah, born 
1772, at "Wood Hall Park," married, 1795, Richard Thomson, 
of Leyburn ; James, born 1775, at "Wood Hall Park," died at 
Plymouth, Montgomery County, Penna., 1856, married EYv/.a- 
beth Priestman ; P>ances, born 1776, at "Wood Hall Park," 

married Redman ; Mary, born 1 779, at " Wood Hall 

Park," died 1843, in Pennsylvania, married Yates. 

John Beezon Baynes, the eldest son, inherited "Wood Hall 
Park," on the death of his mother, and on his marriage with 
Miriam, daughter of Thomas Priestman, "yeoman," of " Dur- 
ruddun," Cumberland, England (in some family papers it is 
written " Dearrudding, in the Parish of Greystock, in the county 
of Cumberland " ), he took her there to live. He sold the 
property in 18 1 8 to Christopher Alderson Alderson, and moved 
with his family to America. They at first settled in Wilmington, 
Del., but his sons afterward removed to Baltimore, Md., where 
they engaged successfully in business, and were prominent mem- 
bers of the Society of Friends in that city. They had : Beezon, 

born 1802, died ; Thomas, born 1803, ^^^'^ . married 

Sarah Wetherald ; P" ranees, born 1804, died 1827, married, 1826, 

William West; John, born 1805 ; James, born 1806, died , 

married Martha De Burgh ; Joseph P., born 1 809, died , 

married Sarah Paiste. 

James Baynes, the brother of John, married, 3d mo. 24th, 
1803, Elizabeth Priestman, the sister of John's wife, and daughter 
of Thomas and Hannah Priestman before mentioned. (In 17 13 
Joseph and Thomas Priestman sign a certificate for Joseph 
Parker from Coldbeck, Cumberland, to Chester, Penna., Monthly 
Meeting.) James Baynes took his wife to that part of the 
Beezon estate inherited by him, which was and is still called 
"Shellcote," a small farm with house and farm buildings in the 
near vicinity of " Wood Hall Park." Here he was occupied in 


sheep-raising and cheese-making, the moorlands being especially 
adapted for the pasture of sheep, while the Stilton cheese is still 
one of the products of the diaries as it was a hundred years ago 
and more. In 1822 James Baynes, following the example of his 
elder brother, sold the place that had been so long in the posses- 
sion of his mother's family, and came to Pennsylvania. He 
brought with him his wife and their nine children, and after 
various removals the)- at last arrived in Tredyffrin Township. 
They rented a farm belonging to Charles Greaves, and here his 
daughter Mary became acquainted with their neighbor, Thomas 
R. Walker, whom she afterwards married. This farm was origin- 
all\- owned bv Lewis Walker, who gave it to his eldest son 
Daniel, on his marriage in 171 5. It is now owned by David 

James Baynes' children were : — Hannah, born 1 804, died 
1839, married John Brookes; John, born 1805, died 1827, 
buried at Chester, Penna.; Frances, born 1807, died 1830, buried 
at the same place; Thomas Priestman, born 1809, died 1889, at 
Plymouth, ^Montgomery County, Penna., married Mary Holt, 
2d, Mary (Caley) Lukens, — s. p. ; Elizabeth, born 181 1, died 
1893, buried at Plymouth, Penna.; Mary, born 1813, died 1880, 
married Thomas R. Walker; Miriam, born 1815, died 1855, 
buried at Plymouth, Penna.; Beezon, born 18 18, married Lowry 
Humphrey, removed to Washington Count}-, Ind.; Alice, born 
1 82 1, died 1862, buried at Plymouth, Penna. 

James Baynes and his wife died at Plymouth, Penna, and 
both are buried in the Friends' Graveyard at that place. 

Thomas R. and [Nlary Baynes Walker were married at a 
public meeting at the Valley meeting-house, and this was the last 
wedding that ever took place there. After that it became 
fashionable to marry at the home of the bride. They went first 
to live at " Belhvood Farm," farming for a cousin, Jane W. 


Cleaver, and living in part of the house, but before the year ended 
a farm was bought for them at Whitpain, Montgomery County, 
Penna., to which place they moved and where they remained for 
several years, until about the year 1853, when Joseph Walker, 
the father of Thomas R. Walker, purchased the Greaves property, 
before mentioned as being the home of James Baynes, and here 
the family removed, and here they resided until, on the death of 
Mary B. Walker, the property was sold to settle up the estate. 
On the marriage of their eldest son, Isaac, in the year 1873, a 
new house was built for him on the top of the hill, a hill which 
gave the name of " Prospect Farm," to the place, in which house 
he lived, managing affairs for his father, who was a helpless 
invalid for years before his death, being afflicted with rheumatic 

Thomas R. Walker was esteemed by all who knew him. He 
had the strong, independent character that corresponded with his 
commanding height. He was over six feet tall, of an obliging dis- 
position, hospitably inclined, and with a mind that might have 
achieved distinction had he entered one of the professions. He 
valued education above all things, and gave his children the 
advantage of good schools. He had had a good education himself, 
having been a pupil of Joseph Foulke, and was gifted with an 
excellent memory. He was a good mathematician, and assisted 
his children in this branch of their studies particularly, being 
' able to work out a difficult problem in his mind during the 
nights when he could not sleep for pain, and have it ready to 
explain to them in the morning. For many years a literar}'' 
society was held every alternate week at his house and that of 
his neighbor and kinsman, Havard Walker, which gave a taste for 
reading and study to the whole neighborhood, and raised the 
tone of society generally. In all his enterprises he was assisted 
by his wife, they being singularly congenial in their tastes. 


They were both Elders of Radnor Monthly Meeting. Though 
they were consistent Friends, they were not bounded by any 
creed. The house in which they lived for so many years of 
their married life was the oldest and plainest in the Valley, yet 
there was none that contained a happier, more united family, and 
the children that grew and thrived therein look upon it, even 
now, with a reverence hard to understand for the present gen- 
eration. They feel that the blessing of a father and mother such 
as theirs cannot be overestimated.

gomery County, Penna., 2d mo. 24th, 1870. lie married, 1849, 
Sarah S., daughter of Joseph and Eleanor (Stephens) Davis. 
Joseph Davis was descended from the Radnor family of that 
name that came originally from Wales and settled there. 
According to " Notes and Queries" in the Pennsylvania Maga- 
zine, I find there were three brothers of this name among 
the early settlers, William, of Radnor, Thomas, of Tredyffrin, 
and Llewellin Davis.* Sarah S. (Davis) Walker thinks she is 
descended from William, of Radnor, because that is a family 
name and she knows that her grandparents are buried in the 
Radnor Meeting Graveyard. 

The Davis family, though numerous and very respectable, can 
only go back to Joseph, of Willistown Township, Chester County, 
the great-grandfather of Sarah, whose son Mordecai lived at the 
Waterloo Mills, in Eastown Township, Chester County. This 
property belonged to the wife of Mordecai, who, with her sister, 
owned it. Mordecai bought the sister's share, and it remained 
in the family until recently, when at the death of John Davis, 
the son of Mordecai, it was sold. Mordecai Davis and his wife 
are buried at Radnor. In 1821 they bought a farm in Tredyffrin 
for their other son, Joseph, who came there to live. This 
property was originally owned by Thomas Waters, who gave it 
to his daughter on her marriage with Colonel Dewees. On the 
death of Mrs. Dewees, her son Waters Dewees inherited it, who 
sold it to Mordecai Davis. 

When the Hessian troops passed through the Valley, Colonel 
Dewees hid his valuables in various places, thinking in this

John Davis, of Howellville, Chester County, Penna., who has a son, Major Charles L.

manner to save his gold and silver, though he could not keep 
his cattle from the marauders. A bag of gold coin was hurriedly- 
hidden under the smoke house, and would have escaped detec- 
tion had not a hen, fleeing before a pursuing soldier, taken refuge 
there also, and the man, following, found the precious treasure, 
which he carried off exultingly, blessing the happy accident that 
procured him so much riches. 

The Dewees house was well built and in a good situation, 
much the same as it is at the present day. During the occupa- 
tion of Valley Forge by Washington's troops, this house was the 
headquarters of General Mifflin. Mrs. Dewees resided here after 
her husband's death and died here. 

Joseph Davis, the new owner, married Eleanor, daughter of 
Stephen and Sarah (MacVeagh) Stephens (see No. 267), and 
here they lived the rest of their lives, and on the death of Joseph 
Davis, a few years ago, the property went to their only son, 
Mordecai, who with his family now occupy it. The three chil- 
dren of Joseph Davis married descendants of Lewis Walker. 
Sarah, as before stated, marr\^ing Moses Walker ; Susan, the 
second daughter, married Lewis Walker (No. 676), and Mordecai 
married Hannah Mary Beidler (No. 1530). 

Joseph Davis was a preacher in the Valley Meeting, and was 
much beloved and respected. His second wife, Elizabeth Peart, 
a widow, was also a preacher, and a gifted one. He is buried in 
the Valley Graveyard with both his wives. 

Moses Walker and his wife went to live on a farm which he 
had purchased from the estate of James Barry, which land lies 
near and overlooks the Schuylkill River near Merion Station on 
the Readincr Railrod. Here thev resided until the death of 
Moses Walker. The property is now owned by his widow, who 
lives here with her only remaining child, whose husband William 
Ramsey farms the place. Moses and Sarah S. (Davis) Walker 
had three children :

Ellen Louisa, daughter of Charles and Mary (Dilworth) Wells, 
at her father's house in Tredyffrin. 

From Sharpless's Genealogy : Mary T. Dilworth" (Sarah") 
married Charles Wells (died ist mo. 3d, 1872), son of Levi 
Wells* (born ist mo. 3d, 1772), and Eleanor Meredith (born ist 
mo. 28th, 1776), daughter of John and Hannah (Harrison) 


Levi Wells ^ was son of Edward - (born loth mo. 14th, 1726) 
and Mary Wells, and grandson of Peter and Mary Wells. 

Sarah Pennell, grandmother of Ellen L. (Wells) Walker, 
born 1780, married, 1800, Richard Dilworth, of Philadelphia, 
born 1779, son of Charles and Mary (Taylor) Dilworth, of West 
Chester, Penna. Richard Dilworth went West early in this 
century, and was never heard of again. Charles and Mary 
(Dilworth) Wells sold their farm in Tredyffrin to Mr. Fisher 
about twenty years ago, and went to Downingtown, Penna., where 
their two surviving sons still live. 

Joseph Walker, the youngest son of Joseph and Priscilla 
Walker, lived at the homestead with his father and sister Mary 
until the death of Joseph Walker, when he inherited the property 
according to the conditions of his father's will. After his mar- 
riage he made some slight improvements at " Rehobeth," and 
assisted by his wife he has there dispensed generous hospitality 
to their many friends and acquaintances. During the time of the 
Quarterly Meeting in August they have frequently entertained as 
many as fifty. He is an enthusiast on the subject of the old 
house in which he first saw the light, and delights in tales of 
"auld lang syne." 

Ellen L. Walker died very suddenly of pneumonia, December 
31st, 1889. She was generous and warm hearted, always ready 
to assist her neighbors in distress and to join them in their 
pleasures. It may truly be said of her, that her place in the 
neighborhood has never been refilled. They had two sons :

No. 675. Havard Walker" (Hananiah,'"' Isaac,'' Joseph.^ 
Isaac,^ Lewis ^), born at "The Meadows," Tredyffrin Township, 
Chester County, Penna., July 3d, 18 15, married Martha, 
daughter of William and Ann (Wager) Potts, of Plymouth, 
Montgomery County, Penna. Martha (Potts) Walker died 
January 2d, 1894. 

William Potts was descended from David and Alice Potts, 
early settlers of Pennsylvania, whose son Nathan, the youngest 

of ten children, born probably 1710, married Hester , and 

had a son Zebulon, born 1746, who married Martha, daughter 
of Joseph and Ann Trotter, and died March 17th, 1801. 

Zebulon Potts was a notable man of Plymouth Township. 
In 1 774 he was appointed constable. He was an ardent Whig, 
and the British, receiving information, through the medium of 
spies, of his active opposition to their cause, sent out parties on 
several occasions to capture him. Once they were almost suc- 
cessful. In 1777 he was appointed one of the Justices of the 
Court of Quarter Sessions and Common Pleas. In the Assessors' 
list of 1780 he is represented as having 100 acres of land, five 
horses, three cows, and "an aged mother to support." In Octo- 
ber, 1784, he was elected the first sheriff in Montgomery County. 
He died at Harrisburg, Penna., while he was State Senator. 
(See History of Montgomery County.) His son William was 
with him in his last sickness and brought his body home. 

Among other children Zebulon Potts had William, born 1787, 
died 1 88 1, who married Ann, daughter of Jesse Wager or 
Wicherline, who lived on a small, well-kept, and valuable farm 


on the banks of the Schuylkill River, near Conshohocken, Penna. 
This farm became his by inheritance when he was t^vo years 
old, at which time he went there to live, and was never farther 
away from it than to Philadelphia in his long life time. His 
sister, EHzabeth, was grandmother to the American novelist, 
James Fenimore Cooper. 

Havard and Martha P. Walker lived on the farm and in the 
house where Havard was bom, and here they celebrated their 
Golden Wedding, in the winter of 1890. He, with his tvvo 
daughters, still live there and farm the place, assisted by his only 
grandson. Although he is past four-score, he is still compara- 
tively hale and hearty, and is interested in all public affairs relat- 
ing to his native count}'. For years he has been a director 
of the public schools, and there is no man so well known by the 
younger generation of Chester Count}^ The eldest daughter is 
a woman of remarkable intelligence, and has wielded an immense 
amount of influence for good in the locality. In her own little 
circle she is an authority on all things mental and moral. Had 
she devoted herself to literature, instead of doing the duty that 
lay nearest to her, she might have achieved a national reputation. 

Havard and Martha (Potts) Walker had four children :

in Tredyffrin, 5th mo., 1889, married, loth mo. 27th, 1841, 
Hannah, daughter of William and Eliza (Coates) Cowgill. 

Eliza Coates, born 5th mo. 19th, 1797, was daughter of 


Moses Coates, who married, 12th mo. loth, 1795, Hannah, 
daughter of IMordecai and Elizabeth (Davis) Moore. ]\Iordecai 
Moore was a resident of Montgomery County. He lived in 
what is known as the Zook homestead, late the residence of that 
family. Beside the farm attached to it he owned the land now 
occupied by the village of Port Kennedy, as well as the farm of 
the late Edwin Moore. He was married at Haverford Meeting 
1 2th mo. 1 2th, 1758. Hannah Moore was born 12th mo. 24th, 


Moses Coates, son of Moses Coates, of Phcenixville, Pa. (see 

No. 249), and his wife, Hannah Moore, went very soon after 

their marriage to Frederick County, Va., and there their daughter 

Eliza was born. She married, 9th mo. i8th, 18 14, William 

Cowgill, born 3d mo. 5th, 1788, died 1st mo. 27th, 1834, and is 

buried at Hopewell Meeting Graveyard in Virginia. 

The Cowgill family, consisting of Ellen, her daughter Jane 
and three sons, Thomas, Ezekiel and John, came to Pennsylvania 
with William Penn, on the ship " Welcome," in 1682. They 
settled in Kent County, Del. 

From " Pennsylvania Archives," 2d Series, Vol. XIX. : 
" 171 5. John Cowgill desires the grant of about 100 acres of 
land joining on his other tract, near the branches of Duck Creek, 
in the County of New Castle, where he had planted a tan yard, 
at id. an acre rent." 

Henry Cowgill, "son of John," of Kent County, Del., is 
supposed to be the son of John, the tanner and emigrant. In 
the Record Book of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting it is recorded 
that Henr>' Cowgill married Alice, daughter of Josiah Pain, of 
Nottingham, Chester County, Penna,, on the 4th day of istmo., 
1742. My correspondent, Ella V. (Walker) Conard, has a copy 
of the marriage certificate. John, a son of Henry and Alice, 
born 4th mo. 25th, 1750, removed to York Count}'', Penna., 


when he was twenty-one years old, and resided there for a time. 
He married, nth mo. 12th, 1772, Catherine (bom 3d mo. 26th, 
1754), daughter of WiUiam and Hannah Shephard, of Notting- 
ham, Chester Count)'. John and Catherine Cowgill went to 
Virginia, taking with them their certificate from Deer Creek 
Monthly Meeting, dated 7th mo. 3d, 1775, to Hopewell Monthly 
Meeting in Virginia. Among the children born to them was 
William, who married Eliza Coates, aforementioned. 

The Cowgill family is supposed to have come from the north 
of England. The Virginia Cowgills were people of means and 
lived in good style. A member of the family writing from Dela- 
ware says she remembers hearing her father tell of a visit his 
great-aunt Cowgill paid them when he was a boy. She came 
from Virginia to their Delaware home in her handsome chaise 
drawn by a pair of fine horses with a dignified negro man as 
driver, a mode of travel which much impressed the boy. Eze- 
kiel Cowgill, the emigrant, went to Virginia, and has descendants 
still living there. The editor of Tlic Kansas Fanner is a 
descendant of Ellen Cowgill. 

On the death of William Cowgill his wife came to live in 
Pennsylvania, among her mother's relations, and here David 
W^alker made the acquintance of her daughter Hannah, who is 
said to have been ver}' beautiful. They were married, loth mo. 
27th, 1 84 1, and went to live on a farm purchased by David 
Walker from Dewalt Beaver, in Tredyffrin, not far from his old 
home. This land was originally a part of John Kinsey's pur- 
chase, and was sold by him to John Beaver, which family retained 
possession of it until it was sold to David Walker. Some years 
ago the old Beaver house was partly torn down and remodeled 
as it is now. Hannah, the wife of David Walker, died some 
years before her husband, and both are buried in the Valley 
Graveyard. They had four children :

Lewis ^), born in Schuylkill Township, Chester County, Penna., 
died 1895, married, April 12th, 1833, John Williams, of 
Schuylkill Township, Chester County, Penna. He was a 
descendant of Lewis Williams, who, it is said, came to America 
on the same ship with Lewis Walker, in 1686-7. Tradition is 
that they were cousins, but all proofs of relationship were 
destroyed b}- a fire that occurred in the Williams family about 
the year 1820. He married Lettice, daughter of James Parry 
of Tredyffrin, who came over on the same ship with her future 
husband. Lewis Williams was one of the original members of 
the Great Valley Baptist Church, joined " by letter from Wales." 
His wife's father was a Presbyterian, and her brother John gave 
the ground where the Great Valley Presbyterian Church now 
stands. Elizabeth Parr}^, her sister, married James David or 
Davis, who gave the land for the erection of the Baptist Church 
in the great Valley. 

Lewis and Lettice (Parry) Williams had three sons, Joseph, 
John, and James, who lived in Whiteland, Chester County, until 
after their father's death in 1735, when they went to Charlestown 
Township, and settled there in 1744. Joseph Williams was part 
owner of the old Valley Forge in 175 i, being in partnership 
with Stephen Evans and Daniel Walker. (See No. 2.) John 
Williams, his brother, a weaver, was a member of the Great 
Valley Baptist Church " by baptism." In 1726, Lewis Williams 
with his family and some other members of this church with- 
drew from it and founded the Seventh Day Baptist Church at 
French Creek. In 1770, John Williams was a deacon at Vincent 
Baptist Church. He was hving in 1793. His son David also 
lived to be over ninety. John married Mary , about 1720.

(Jones) Havard. (See No. 250.) William and Susanna (Havard) 
Roberts built a home on a part of the Havard tract which came

positions of trust in the County. Both he and his wife were 
valuable members of society. His wife survives him, and with

father's, and owned by him, called " Willow Grove," which he 
afterwards purchased. He lived here all his married life, and 
made of it one of the most valuable pieces of property in the 
neighborhood. He was a good business man and his wife was a 
noted housekeeper. Some years ago they enlarged and improved 
the old farm house, which in their time has been the scene of 
many pleasant social gatherings. He died very suddenly, and 
was buried in the Valley Graveyard. His widow, who survives 
him, lives at " Willow Grove." They had seven children :

No. 713. Mary Pexnypacker Walker^ (William,^ Thomas,* 
Joseph,^ Isaac,2 Lewis ^), born at " Rehobeth Spring," in 
Tredyffrin Township, Chester County, Penna., Sept. 3d, 18 19, 
died at her home in Philadelphia, Nov. 15th, 1889, married, 
March 21st, 1839, Tristram Coffin Colket, who was born at 
Epping, New Hampshire, October 15th, 1809, died in Phila- 
delphia, April 5th, 1883. 


Tristram Coffin Colket was the son of Peter and Phoebe 
(Hamilton) Colcord. At an early age he left his New P^ngland 
home and came to Pennsylvania, where he changed the spelling 
of his name to Colket. , The reason he gave for this change 
was because it was pronounced by his associates as if it were 
written Colket. In the old New England records, we find the 
name has been written in a variety of ways : — Colcord, Colcorde, 
Collcord, Colcot, Colcote, Colcott, Colker, Colcutt, Colkit, Col- 
ket, Colkett, Calcott, etc. 

The earliest New England ancestor of this family was Edward 
Colcord, who was born in England 1616- ly, died in 1685, 
(probably) came to America 1631-33, settling in New Hamp- 
shire. Another ancestor is Tristram Coffin, born 1609, ^^^^ 
1 68 1, who came to New England in 1642. 

From "New England Genealogical Register," Vol. 2, p. 
336 : " Peter and Joanna Coffin had a son Tristram (which 
signifies sorrowful), born in Plymouth, England, who married 
Dionis Stevens, and came to New England 1642, with his 
mother, two sisters, Eunice and Mary Coffin, and five children 
of their own : I. Tristram, Jr., II. Peter, III. Elizabeth, IV. 
James, V. John. He, with Thomas Macy, Christopher Hussey, 
and others bought Nantucket Island and settled there." 

The Coffins of New England claim descent from Sir Richard 
Coffyn, who came to England with William the Conqueror. 

Tristram Coffin Colket came to Philadelphia poor and 
unknown, and by his own exertions and foresight succeeded in 
amassing a large fortune. He was interested in no less than 
thirty-eight corporations at different times and in various capa- 
cities, some of which are as follows : — Director of the Central 
R. R. of New Jersey ; the Morris Canal Co. ; Tioga Improve- 
ment Co. ; North Penn. R. R. ; Penn Township Bank ; Citizens' 
Pass. Railway Co. ; City Bank ; Northern Saving Fund ; Presi- 


dent of Phila. City Pass. Railway Co. ; Chestnut Hill R. R. Co.; 
Philadelphia, Germantown, and Norristown R. R. Co. ; Tremont 
Coal Co. ; Long Island R. R., etc. He and his wife are buried 
at Laurel Hill Cemeten,-. They had nine children :

flour, owning and operating large mills in Philadelphia and the 
Gulph. He was Colonel of Volunteers during the Civil War, 
recruiting and commanding the ig2d Penna. Regt. This regi- 
ment was organized July, 1864, at the time General Lee made 
his raid into Pennsylvania. Among the soldiers composing it 
were many youths, out of school, several of them being descend- 
ants of Lewis Walker. They marched to meet the invader, but 
happily the southern troops were checked before their arrival, 
much to the disappointment of many of the young soldiers, who 
were burning with patriotism and anxious to undergo their 
baptism of fire. They were in no engagements, but were used 
principally for guard duty at Fort McHenry, Johnson's Island, 
and Gallipolis, Ohio. At the end of their four months' enlist- 
ment, they returned to their homes, in time, for those who had 
a vote, to cast it for Abraham Lincoln. Colonel Thomas also 
commanded a regiment of militia in the invasion of the State the 
previous year.

1875, Edward Bright Conard, son of Joseph and Eliza (Bright) 
Conard, of Port Kennedy, Montgomery County. 

Edward B. Conard is grandson of Dennis Conard, who \\-as 
descended from Tennis Konnard, one of the early settlers oi 
Germantown, Penna., who came to America with Daniel Pastorius. 
The first religious meeting of the Germantown Quakers was held 
at the house of Tennis Konnard, 1683. 

From The Friend: " Dennis Conard, or Cunard, as the name 
was often spelled in early times, was born at Cresheim, in Ger- 
many, where he was convinced of the principles of truth by 
William Ames, in or about the year 1657. He came among the 
first Germans to Pennsylvania, and settled at Germantown, where 
the first meetings for worship of Friends were held at his house. 
He was esteemed in religious society and often employed in its 
affairs. ' He was,' says T. Chalkley, ' a man of an inoffensive 
life, much given to hospitality, and left a good report behind 
him. He lived to a great age, dying about the close of the 9th 
mo., 1729. The meeting held at the time of his death was large, 
many of the early settlers of that part of Pennsylvania attending 
it.' " 

In the " Pennsylvania Archives," 2d series, Volume XIX, 
we read that " Dennis Konders, of Germantown, Dyer, having in 
a petition to the Proprietor, dated, 15 of 8br, 1 701, exhibited that 
he, having purchased 500 Acres, had taken up but 225, and begs 



that the remainder be granted out of the over-plus adjoining 
Germantown, or of the Manor of Springfield." It was granted 
out of the Germantown property. (See also Gordon's " History 
of Pennsylvania.") 

Edward B. Conard inherited the farm, called " Green Rank," 
near Port Kennedy, Penna., from his father, where he resides.

Journal kept by Isaac Richards from Valley Forge, Chester 
County, Penna., to Buffalo, N. Y. 

Chester Co. Penn., nth Mo., 2nd. 1824. Began our journey from 
the Valley Forge, Chester Co., Penn., to Buffalo, in the State of New 
York. Crossed the Schuylkill at Long Ford, passed the Trappe, and 
crossed Perkiomen at Mill and lodged at Gerhart's Tavern, where we 
were well entertained. Distance, 24 miles. 

3rd. Began our journey early this morning and crossed a branch of 
the Perkiomen, passed through Charlestown and Quakertown and 
crossed the Lehigh. Thence through Bethlehem, and lodged at Dris- 
hack's Tavern, five miles from Bethlehem ; poor entertainment, with a 
greasy landlady. Distance, 28 miles. 

4th. Proceeded on our journey early this morning, passed through 
New Town and Nazareth. Thence through Shawney Town and 
Jacobsburgh and crossed the Blue Mountains at Hellers. Jesse 
Roberts, Jacob W. Richards and myself climbed to the top where we 
had a fine prospect of the surrounding country and fired our pieces to 
the surrounding hills, but we were none the better for that as we had a 
walk of nine miles before we overtook the rest of our company. So 
much for our fun. We lodged at John Stom's tavern where we were a 
little Yankeed. Distance, 26 miles. 

5th. Started early this morning on our journey, but we had not 
proceeded above three miles when we were forced to put up on account 
of the rain. Stopped at Eddinger's Tavern, about eight o'clock. 
The rain having subsided we started about two o'clock, although we 
had several showers in the afternoon. We crossed the Pocano Moun- 
tains and barrens and lodged at Thomas' Tavern, in the edge of the 
Beech woods where we were well entertained. Distance, 12 miles. 

6th. Started early this morning, having to pass through the Beech 
woods, a distance of 12 miles, with but one house the whole distance, 



and a wild looking place it is for a person to pass through that has 
never travelled any before. We crossed the Lackawaxen and one of its 
branches and lodged at Swingle's Tavern, where we were well enter- 
tained. Distance, 27 miles. 

8th. We proceeded on our journey early this morning, eager to 
arrive at Uncle D. Richards (No. 65). We passed through the moun- 
tains, the County town of Susquehanna County, and arrived in the 
evening about seven o'clock, at Uncle D. Richards. Glad to get a 
little rest. Distance, 27 miles. 

9th. We stayed there and hunted, viewed the hills of the Susfjue- 
hanna County, but found nothing very enticing. The iith, alter 
refreshing ourselves with two days rest and replenishing our provisions, 
we pursued our journey over the hills of the Susquehanna County, 
about 12 miles when we crossed the line into the State of New V'ork. 
Crossed the North Branch of the Susquehanna at Oswego, a flourishing 
village, where we lodged at Manning's Inn. Well entertained. Dis- 
tance to-day, 20 miles. 

1 2th. Took an early start this morning over a middling level road, 
though the late rains had made it very heavy travelling. The land 
appears to be better than any we have seen since we crossed the Blue 
Mountains. White oak and chestnut oak begin to make their appear- 
ance in considerable quantities to-day, though we saw some few of 
them yesterday. Hemlock is beginning to disappear very fast, 
although it has been our constant companion for upwards of one hun- 
dred miles. The streams are clear on this side of the riv<;r, but on 
the other side they are dyed by the hemlock, through which they pass. 
Lodged at Smith's Inn, where we were well entertained. Distance, 
25 miles. 

13th. Started this morning, having a very rough road, it having 
froze very hard last night and being soft the day before, has made the 
road extremely rough. We passed through Ithaca, a flourishing village, 
at the head of Cayuga Lake. The land appears very fine in this place. 
The wood is principally sugar maple, beech, pine, the different kinds 
of oak, with some hickory. We had a fine sight of the lake after we 
had passed the town a mile or so. J. Roberts, J. Richards and I went 


down within a few miles of it when we discovered an immense number 
of wild ducks ; a fine shot, but we had no guns with us, and were 
forced to leave them behind, and march back, not well pleased that 
we had not an opportunity of discharging our pieces at them, at least 
once. We passed through Trumansville, and lodged at Thomas's 
Tavern. A Pennsylvanian from Philadelphia, good entertainment. 
Distance, 20 miles. 

14th. Started early this morning on our journey over a very rough 
road. Passed through a very fine, level country, apple and peach 
orchards appear to be numerous. A great deal of the former fruit is 
not yet gathered in. We passed through Farmersville and Ovid village 
but were forced to put up about three o'clock in the afternoon. We 
stopped at Depue's Inn, where we were well entertained. Distance, 
20 miles. 

15th. We took an early start this morning though it still continued 
to rain a little. The country is about the same character as that we 
passed through yesterday. We were forced to lay by from about 11 
o'clock this morning until 3 in the afternoon. We stopped at Hen- 
gan's Inn, a Dutch Yankee, for he Yankeed us. The rain having 
abated, we went on and lodged at Teel's Inn, on the shore of Seneca 
Lake, where we were well entertained. Distance, 13 miles. 

1 6th. We started this morning through the mud. Passed through 
Geneva, situated on the North-west side of Seneca Lake, near the out- 
let of the same. Then we passed Canandaigua Lake and thence along 
the shores of the same for about ^ of a mile. We passed through the 
town of tlie same name, a very flourishing place, two miles beyond 
that we lodged at Wilder' s Inn. Good entertainment. Distance, 
20 miles. 

17th. We took an early start this morning, and passed through 
East and West Bloomfield. The land is now becominsf more hillv the 
farther we advance. Plenty of mud to-day. Fruit is still plenty. 
We lodged at Osburn's Inn, in the village of Owen. Distance 20 

1 8th. Left our lodging early this morning, the mud having frozen 
last night made the roads very rough. We crossed the Genesee River, 



passed through Caledonia. I'he land is becoming more hilly with 
several veins of limestone running through it. We pxssed through 
La Roy, and lodged at Reynolds' Inn, where we were well entcrlaiucd. 
Distance 19 miles. 

19th. Took a middling early start this morning. The road is still 
getting worse the farther we proceed. We pa.ssed through Hatavia, a 
very flourishing place. The country is not so fertile as it has been. 
We lodged at Goffs tavern. Distance 17 miles. 

20th. Left lodgings early this morning and proceeded over a rough 
road. The mud still continues very deep. We arrived late in the 
evening at Williamsville, where we lodged. Distance 19 miles. 

2ist. Started this morning at sunrise, the road still about the same. 
Passed through Buffalo, a very flourishing village, situated on Buffalo 
Creek and Lake Erie. Crossed the Creek and lodged at the beach of 
Lake Erie, at Salisbury's Inn. Poor accommodations. Distance 14 

22nd. Proceeded this morning along the shore of Lake Erie the 
distance of 4 miles. Travelling on the beach is both difficult and 
tedious. The sand is so deep and loose that it fatigues our horses 
more than the mud. We lodged at Tubs Hollow at Hunt's Tavern. 
Distance, 14 miles. 

23rd. Started early this morning eager to arrive at our journey's 
end. The road is extremely bad in some places. We were up to the 
wagon bed in mud, with rain. We arrived at J. Taylor's about 3 
o'clock, P. M. on the 23rd of the nth Mo., 1824. Distance to-day, 
12 miles. 

After staying here five days and viewing the country, which we did 
not find so good as represented to us, we therefore resolved after travel- 
ling 400 miles to steer to some other point. We left Taylor's on the 
28th, for the State of Ohio. We crossed Clear Creek, thence through 
the Indian settlement. The land appears to be very fertile, great 
numbers of horses and cattle are feeding on the prairies. But few of 
the Indians attend to much farming. We crossed Cattaraugus Creek, 
and lodged at Howar's Tavern, where we were well entertained. Dis- 
tance, 14 miles. 


29th. This morning we proceeded on our journey through some 
fine country and some middling poor. We passed through Fredonia, 
lodged at Fox's Inn, where we were well entertained. Distance, 14 

30th. Started early this morning, passed through Westfield, crossed 
Chautauqua and lodged at Stetson's Inn. Distance, 14 miles. 

12th Mo., ist. Took a middling early start this morning. The 
road getting better, it not having rained since we left Taylor's. We 
lodged at Lyon's Tavern. Good fare. Distance 17 miles. 

2nd. Left our lodgings early this morning and passed through the 
town of Erie. Not a very populous place considering the time since 
it was laid out. We lodged at Huston's, a house of entertainment on 
the turnpike leading from Erie to Pittsburg. Well entertained. Dis- 
tance 14 miles. 

3rd. It being a rainy morning, we did not start until late. The 
road very muddy. We arrived in the evening at Waterford, where we 
put up at King's Tavern, and were well enteatained. Distance, 14 

4th. Started this morning early, crossed French Creek at the 
outlet of Labreuf Lake. Lodged at Keepler's place, nothing to brag 
of. Distance 14 miles. 

5 th. Started this morning early. The snow fell last night to the 
depth of about 2 inches. The road very bad, the day very cold, we 
traveled 8 miles, when we arrived at Meadville and put up at Hurst's 
Inn. In this place we tho't of putting up for the winter at least, but 
were not all agreed. We stayed here until the 7th, when we again 
turned out on the road. We arrived at Georgetown, put up at Dunn's 
tavern, good fare. Distance 15 miles. 

8th. Took an early start this morning, the day cold and the road 
very rough. We arrived at Mercer, the county town of Mercer 
County, where we put up at Herrington's Tavern. Not very good fare. 
Distance 15 miles. 

9th. Took an early start this morning, very cold ; we passed 
through some very poor looking country, for about ten miles and then 
it began to grow better. We lodged at Hunter's, a private house, 


Avhere we had to do the best we could, as he and his wife were rather 
" before the wind." Distance, 13 miles. 

loth. It being rainy this morning, we did not start until late. We 
arrived at New Castle, situated between the waters of the Neshanock 
and Chenango. Here we put up at Chenworth's Tavern. Distance, 
5 miles. 

nth. We stayed at New Castle until late in the afternoon, and got 
our horses shod. We then proceeded, crossing the Chenango and 
Mahoning. We arrived in the evening at Jacksonville and lodged at 
Schockey's Tavern. Distance, 5 miles. 

12th. Started early this morning, passed through Greensburg, 
situated in a poor, hilly country, and lodged at Robert Johnson's, a 
house of private entertainment ; middling fare. Distance, 15 miles. 

13th. Took an early start this morning, crossed the line between 
Pennsylvania and the State of Ohio. We crossed Little Beaver Creek 
and lodged in Fancette Town, at Fayette Tavern on the banks of the 
Ohio River. Distance, 15 miles. 

14th. Started early this morning and crossed Big Yellow Creek. 
Passed through Knoxville, and lodged at Jones's Tavern. Distance, 
17 miles. 

15th. Started early this morning, passing through Steubenville, a 
flourishing village situated on the banks of the Ohio. Here are a 
steam grist-mill, woolen and cotton factories, all of which do a great 
deal of business. We put up at the Widow Shaw's Ferry house, poor 
fare. Distance, 9 miles. 

1 6th. Proceeded on down the Ohio River, passed through Warren 
and lodged at Jacob Zeel's, a private house, where we stayed until the 
1 8th, it being rainy, and then started and arrived at Mt. Pleasant, in 
Jefferson County, State of Ohio, about 12 o'clock on the same day. 
Distance, 21 miles. 635 miles, — whole distance from A-^alley Forge. 
From Valley Forge to D. Richards, . . .169 miles.

The parties referred to in this journal consisted of Samuel Richards 
and his wife Ann W. Richards, and their seven children, with their 
nephew, Jesse Roberts, of Lower Merion Township, Montgomery 
County, Penna. Their names and ages at the time of the journey as 
follows, viz . : 

Samuel Richards, age 46. 

Ann Richards, age 46.

They traveled with a four horse team loaded with their household 
goods, consisting of beds, bedding and personal clothing in trunks, 
chests, &c., and such cooking utensils as were necessary to cook the 
provisions on the journey, together with three shot guns, or smooth 
bore rifles. Our mother and Ann rode in the wagon on a seat fixed 
for them. The rest of the children had seats when they wanted to 
ride, but made most of the journey on foot. When the roads were 
good and walking could be dispensed with, the four boys would mount 
the horses and the rest take seats in the wagon and we could make 
time faster, but this was seldom the case. The writer was the youngest 
of the boys, and he has a very distinct recollection of the journey. 
Many times he felt tired and foot sore from the walking he had to do 
during the trip. It was fifty-five years, last December, when the jour- 
ney was closed, and all the parties comprising the company have gone 
to their long home except the two last mentioned in the above list.

Letter of Resignation of Rev. William Cukkie, from the 
Records of St. David's Church, Radnor. 

Ma}' 1 6th, 1776. 
The Wardens ami Vestrymen of St. David's Church. 


Age and infirmity having rendered me unable to officiate any 
longer, I take this method to let you know that I shall decline attend- 
ing your church any more, but though Providence has so ordered that 
I can serve you no more in public, yet God forbid that I should cease 
to pray for you in private. No, as I have taken the best care 1 was 
able under an infirm state of health to shew you a good and right way, 
so while I breathe I will not cease to pray that God may give you his 
Grace to enable you to walk in it. And as I shall not cease to pray 
for you, I beseech you, neglect not to pray for yourselves. 

Prayer is at all times your duty, but more especially in troublesome 
times. When deprived of the church, make use of the closet, and then 
pour out your complaints to him who seeth in secret and will in his 
own good time reward you openly. 

A devout man, though he has but his chamber to retire to, and his 
doors be shut upon him, yet he lives as it were in Goshen. When 
flashes of judgment burst upon other persons, 'tis calm in the prayer 
room ; when the destroying Angel had overrun every house in Egypt 
with death, when there was nothing but carcasses and crying in each 
dwelling, there was not one Shriek in all the Land of Goshen. When 
a thick darkness dwelt upon the nation, the praying Israelites had light 
in all their dwellings, and when sad, dark clouds sit, as it were, on 
God's countenance, and pours down Inundations of Tempests upon a 
carhless, lukewarm and backsliding people, yet even then his face 
shines in the Closets of Devotion there he breaks in and reveals his 
comforts as is so there as his Angel was at that time a Pillar of light to 


the one and of a Cloud to the other ; let the Devotion Chamber be 
your Sanctuary till these troublesome times be overpassed : flee for 
refuge to the horns of the Altar, the throne of Grace, there offer up 
the Incense of your prayers and let the lifting up of your hands be as 
the even Sacrifice. Thus, my dear little flock, I bid you heartily fare- 
well and am with great love and affection, your faithful pastor till death. 


May 26th, 1776. 
Gentlemen : 

Age and infirmity having render' d me unable to officiate in publick 
at this time, you are not to expect me at church any more till circum- 
stances are altered, and when it shall please God to restore me to a 
better state and I can again with safety return to ye exercise of my 
function, I will confine myself to your church if ye congregation will 
make ye Glebe house fit for me to live in. 

From your loving Pastor. 

Willl^m Currie. 
P. S. Let this be pinn'd in 
ye Vestrv Book. 



Rees Thomas and Martha Awbrey, Early Settlers in Merion. 

by george vaux. 

Rees Thomas and Martha Awbrey seem to have arrived in America 
late in the year 1691, both being passengers in the same vessel with a 
large number of other persons, members of the Society of Friends. 
They were engaged to be married prior to their departure from Eng- 
land. Rees Thomas appears to have been a native of Monmouthshire, 
a district closely bordering on Wales. The certificate furnished him 
by the Friends of Chepstow (a town not far from Bristol, from which 
emigrant vessels frequently sailed) testifies that he "had been very 
serviceable upon the account of truth in all honest designs," and " one 
that walked according to the order of truth from his first convince- 
ment," And also that he was " of a meek and quiet disposition and 
well beloved of all sort, [and] descended of a good family. ' ' 

Martha Awbrey was descended from an ancient Welsh family, 
which, for many generations, had been seated in Brecknockshire. 
The pedigree of the family is preserved in an ancient roll or chart, 
dated 1633, in the hands of an English descendant. The chart also 
contains pedigrees of various families allied by marriage to the Awbreys, 
together with designs of coats of arms, about sixty in all. The Awbrey 
pedigree traces descent from Saunders de St. Awbrey, brother of Lord 
St. Awbrey, Lord Marshal of France and Earl of Boulogne, who came 
into England in 1066. The name seems to have been Teutonic, and 

formerly Alberic or The White King. Sir Reginald Awbrey, 

knight, son of the former, " came to the conquest of Brecknockshire 
with Bernard Newmarke in 1092, by whom he was granted the manors 
of Aberkynfrig and Shvch " (Slough). 

From Sir Reginald the descent of the family property is traced 
through twelve names, most of which represent generations, to Richard 
Awbrey, of Aberkynfrig, who died in 1580, having previously sold 


the ancient seat of the family at that place. His son, Richard Awbrey, 
married Anne, daughter of William Vaughan, and in right of his wife 
became Lord of the Manor of Llanelyw. He died in 1646, and was 
buried under the floor of the chancel of the church of Llanelyw. His 
grave is covered with a flat tombstone, forming part of the pavement, 
which has upon it the following inscription : 

" Here lyeth the body of Richard Awbrey of Llanelyw Gent, who 
married Anne Vaughan daughter to William Vaughan of Llanelyw, 
who had issue William, Richard, Thomas, John, Theophilus and 
Elizabeth. Died the 23 day of September 1646." 

The combined arms of the Awbrey and Vaughan families are also 
carved on the stone, and the inscription, as far as it precedes the state- 
ment of issue, runs around the four sides of the tablet, beginning at 
the top, and terminating at the upper end of the left-hand side. 

Richard Awbrey (the second) had several children, as above stated, 
of whom William, the eldest, and Thomas, the third son, as well as 
their father, were Puritans and Parliamentarians. The second son, 
Richard (the third) was an adherent of the king, and a clergyman, 
being vicar of Boughrod in Radnorshire. William had no son, and 
the Llanelyw estate being entailed the heir to it was the second brother, 
Richard. In order to keep the property in the hands of the descend- 
ants of Puritan stock, William, finding his death likely to be near, 
hastily married his only daughter, Elizabeth, to her first cousin, 
William, the eldest son of his brother Thomas, both of them being 
under age. This was in 1646, about a year before his decease, and 
by his will he sought to place his son-in-law in the position of a son 
of his own. Richard, the clerical brother and heir in tail, instituted 
legal proceedings to recover the property, but the matter was finally 
settled by arbitration, apparently in such a way that the youthful 
couple, William and Elizabeth Awbrey, were able to retain the Llane- 
lyw estate. 

It is probable that William Awbrey was a member of the Society 
of Friends. It is certain that his sons, Richard and William (the 
latter of whom married Letitia Penn for his second wife), and his 
daughter Martha, belonged to that religious denomination. He had 


ten children by his wife Elizabeth. He died in 17 16, aged ninety, 
and was buried in Llanelyw churchyard, where is still to be seen an 
altar-tomb erected over his remains, with the following inscription : 

"Here lyeth the body of William Awbrey of Llanelyw, Son of 
Thomas Awbrey Gent. Married Elizabeth daughter of William 
Awbrey. Had issue Ten. Richard, William, 2 Thomas, Theophilus, 
Anne, Mary, 2 Martha and Elizabeth. Departed this life in Hope of a 
Joyful Resurrection, the 16 of December 1716, aged 90." 

The figures 2 before the names Thomas and Martha indicate that 
there were two children of these names. There are tombstone inscrip- 
tions at Llanelyw, showing that the first Martha died in 1662, and the 
first Thomas in 1669. 

Rees Thomas settled in Merion, where he acquired a considerable 
body of land, upon part of which the present villages of Bryn Mawr 
and Rosemont stand. He was married to Martha Awbrey at Haver- 
ford, on the 1 8th of the Fourth Month, 1692. The phraseology of 
the marriage certificate evidently presents the very words used by the 
parties when taking each other in marriage. The following extract is 
given : 

"The said Rees Thomas solemnly declared, friends I am standing 
here in the presence of God and before you I do take Martha Awbrey 
to be my wedded wife and by God's assistance do promise to be true 
and loving and faithful unto her and to behave myself unto her as 
becomes a man to behave himself towards his wife so as to continue 
till death part us. In like manner the said Martha said, I am here in 
the presence of God and before you I also take Rees Thomas to be 
my husband and I do promise to love him and make much of him till 
death part us. ' ' 

A few years after their marriage, Rees and Martha Thomas wrote 
jointly to her aged father. The original of this letter is still preserved 
in the hand of a descendant. It is dated, " Ye 29th day of ye 2d Mo 
1695," and is addressed, " Most dear & tender Father." The follow- 
ing extracts will be found interesting, the original spelling being 
preserved : 

"Our dutyfull and harty Respects salute the hopeing these few 


lines will find thee in good health as I & my wife & two children are 
all this present time — my son Aubrey was borne ye 30th day of ye 
nth month and ye fourth day of ye weeke 1694 his mother and he 
now very harty praysed be to ye Lord for ye same I doe understand yt 
thou were not well pleased yt my oldest son [Rees] was not caled an 
Aubrey. I will assure thee that I vvas not against it, but my neibors 
wood have him to be caled my name, being I bought ye Land and I 
So beloved amongst them. I doe admite to what thee sayes in thy 
Letter yt an Aubrey was better known than 1 : though I am hear very 
well aquanted with most in those parts, he is the first Aubrey in Pen- 
silvania and a stout boy he is of his age, being now a quarter. My 
unkle John Bevan came over very well and a good voyage he had, he 
tould me he had seen thee twise, which we were very glad of thy well 
keeping in years and also hopeing noe vexation nor trouble will come 
upon thee upon either hand which will be a great exercise to us to hear 
of nothing but what will atend to thy goodness : hopeing my brother 
Richard and his wife will make much of thee in thy ould age, thy

thee in thy ould age — I was now very sorry to hear of ye death our 
brother William his wife, where in ther was great commendation of her 
integrity in ye truth by severall hear yt knows her and I will writ to him. 

" I have been very weake in body ye Last winter having a great fite 
of sickness, but ye Lord pleased to recover me & bring me up agen

since shee came to- ye country. 

' ' I lost much time in going to faires and markets. William 
Fisheir of Rose formerly [is] now Living in Philadelphia. 

" Thy dater desires thee to acquaint her of her age in ye next letter. 
My son Rees Remembers his Love to his Granfather and also to his 
nanty Anne, he doth speake very Liberally but unkle is a hard word for 
[him] , his Love is to Richard, a brave bould boy he is now without a

" I had about 16 score bushels of wheat this year. I have 15 heds 
of cattle, six horses what dyed this winter, for it was a hard winter, 
they say they never saw ye like of. " 

In addition to the two children named in the foregoing letter, 
Rees and Martha Thomas had a third son, William. Of these, Rees 
and William left descendants. Awbrey visited England and married 
Gulielma, the only daughter of William Penn, Jr., and granddaughter 
of the Founder. He did not long survive his marriage, and died with- 
out issue, probably in England. 

Rees Thomas survived his wife a number of years. Martha died 
in 1726. After her death a small book was published by S. Keimer, 
entitled, "A collection of Elegiac Poems devoted to the Memory of 
the late virtuous and excellent Matron and worthy Elder in the Church 
of Christ of the Society of Friends Martha Thomas, late wife of Rees 
Thomas of Merion of the County of Philadelphia in the Province of 
Pennsylvania and Daughter of William Awbrey of Llanelieu in the 
County of Brecknock in Great Britain who departed this life the 7th 
of i2th Mo. 1726-7." 

A modern edition of the same, bearing the above title, was printed 
by Lydia R. Bailey, Philadelphia, 1837.
