Hiivino luid occasion about Hve years ago to investigate some points in the early history of New 
Jersey Dr. Henry Kace, of Pittstown, directed nie to the Kingwood Records. Tlirough the kindness 
of the Custodian, Mr. Abrani R. Vail, of Quakertown, unfortunately recently deceased, free access 
to them was given me. So much of interest to so many people was discovered that the notes then 
taken were regarded of sullicient value to publish. Every effort has been used to avoid errors but 
the nature of the work was such that some minor ones may not have escaped notice. The work 
has been a labor of love upon the ])art of both the compiler and pultlisher.

5 HE region about Quakertown, New Jersey, 
was settled by Friends at an early date, 
bow early it is impossible now to deter- 
mine with exactness. A few old deeds which 
have escaped the ravages of time indicate that 
some of the families were there abont 1726 or 
1727. The Friends who were early settlers were 
members of Chesterfield Monthly Meeting, of Bur- 
lington County. In the minutes of that Meeting, 
under date of 10th. 4, 1729, the following minute 
is found : "Thomas Williams, Samuel Schooley 
and others made application to this meeting 
that, whereas, their settlement being remote from 
Friends, they request Friends approbation and 
consent to meet together at one of their houses 
every First day of the week to worship God ; 
whereupon this meeting, well knowing the advan- 
tage the people of God have in meeting together 
in His name, approve of their so doing until there 
be an established meeting nearer to them, or until 
Friends see some inconveniency in their so doing. " 
This is supjjosed to be the authority for the estab- 
lishing of the Bethlehem Monthly Meeting, which 
afterwards became the Kingwood Meeting, the 
name of the township having been changed to the 
latter. In the act itself it will be noticed that 
the location of the settlement is not given. There 
is no evidence of the appointment of overseers 
until 1731, when a proposition was brought out 
" to appoint overseers for Bethlehem." 

In 1733 Samuel Large, Samuel Willson, John 
Stevenson, Edward Kockhill and Joseph King act 
as trustees for four acres of land for the use of the 
meeting, which are deeded by Jacob Doughty. 
Nothing is known of the date of the erection of 
the original meeting-house. It is said to have 
been a log house, and to have stood about thirty 
yards southwest of the present building*. 

The establishment of a Ijusiness meeting in 1744 
is indicated by the following extract from the 
minutes ; John Simcock is supposed to have been 
the clerk. 

* The writer wishes lo acknowledge his indebtedness 
for the preceding information to a paper by Mrs Mary C. 
Vail. 



BOOK A VOL: the 1st. 

Containing 

The Proceedings of the Monthly Meeting at King- 
wood, formerly called Bethlehem, according to the 
Minutes here-in-after Eecorded At our Monthly 
Meeting held at Bethlehem the 10th. Day of the 
7th. Month 1744 This being our first Monthly 
Meeting of Friends here, friends think it requisite 
that the copy of the Last Quarterly Meetings Min- 
utes whereby Liberty was granted that we Sliould 
hold a Monthly Meeting here, Should be Entered 
at large, which is as foUoweth, vizt. At our 
Quarterly Meeting held at Burlington the 27th. 
day of the Gth. Month 1744, This Meeting again 
considering the application of Friends of Bethle- 
hem Meeting who have again renewed their re- 
quest, and after deliberate and weighty considera- 
tion of the matter. Do now consent and agree that 
as they live very remote from any Monthly Meet- 
ing which must needs be on Several accounts 
inconvenient to them. They have Liberty to hold 
a Monthly ^Meeting among themselves, and it is 
Agreed that the said meeting be held the Second 
day in each Month : And the Clerk is desired to 
give them a copy of this Minute. 

A true Copy pr. Caleb Eaper Clerk. 

No better history of Kingwood Meeting can be 
written than that which is contained in the Min- 
utes. The following quotations, in their quaint 
language, tell the story : 

11 1 1744 I 5. "Jeremiah Williams reports 
that he carried Seventy shillings which was col- 
lected at our last Monthly Meeting to the Quar- 
terly Meeting and paid it to Caleb raper (the 
Treasurer) towards the Yearly Meetings Stock." 



11 12 1744. 



This meeting taking into con- 



sideration the necessity of Building a new Meet- 
inghouse in this place have Unanimously agreed 
to lay the necessity thereof before the next Quar- 
terly Meeting in order to their Approbation 
therein." 

11 1 1744 I 5. "Samuel Large & Jeremiah 
Williams who were appointed to Attend Last 
Quarterly Meeting Keport that Agreeable to the

made there on that occasion which is Entred at 
large as followeth vizt. At our (Quarterly Meet- 
ing held at Burlington the ;>r)th. day of the 12th.

this meeting grants and appoints Samuel Willson 
Junr. shall serve in the place of an overseer at 
particular Meeting." 

12 6 1745. " This meeting taking into consid- 
eration that it would answer much better both in 
respect of our own affairs and also because our 
Monthly Meeting interferes with some otlier adja- 
cent meetings so that both cannot both be so 
well attended as otherwise they might be if our 
Monthly Meeting were settled on the Second Fifth 
day in every mouth w herefore it is concluded that 
those Friends who shall be appointed to attend 
next Quarterly Meeting do make request accord- 
ingly and that our request be inserted in our 
report to the next meeting. This meeting agrees

and Meetings of Worship both on First days and

subscribed towards dischargeing the same ;" 

16 9 1748. At this meeting Friends at the

the last monthly meeting for settling and fixing a 
place for building a IMeetingiiouse at the Great

Chesterfield to which is added the following : 

14 5 1752. " We have had under our consid- 
eration the visiting of families and tho we are sen- 
sible that it is a good work where it is rightly 
performed yet we are under some difficulty to get 
such among us as are suetable and willing to 
undertake it being a small Meeting and few of us 
looking upon ourselves sutable for that weighty 
service. And we have likewise considered the 
proposal for settling a school, but being few of us 
and so remote from each other and some of us 
under low circumstances so that it seems unlikely 
to us that we shall be able to raise a sufficient 
sallary to support such a school. Otherwise we 
should be very free and heartily join with the 
proposal believing it would in some degree answer 
the good purpose intended." 

11 4 1754. Samuel Large, Gershom Mott 
Junior and Robert Large are appointed to visit 
the families of Friends at Kingwood and else-

Meeting sent a copy of a Minute made at the said 
Meeting which is as followeth \izt. " At a Q. 
M. held at Burlington the 31st of the 8th month 
1752 This meeting observing something slender in 
the report from Bethlehem and being disatisfied 
with it was informed by some Friends not of that 
Meeting that a difference was among them relat- 



ing to the rebuilding the roof of the Meetinghouse 
this Meeting therefore for the sake of peace and to 
prevent further contention thought it necessary to 
consider the conveniency and inconveniency of 
both proposals and upon the whole is of opinion 
th^t the form the roof of the said Meetinghouse 
was before built in is much the best both as it 
regards the conveniency of the women friends and 
the conveniency of galleries and the CI erk is ordered 
to send a copy of this minute to the said Meeting. 
By order of the Q. M. Sam'l. Smith Clerk."

to the Overseers of Hardwick Meeting and to tlie 
Meeting also to let them understand that this 
Meeting looks upon it that they are remiss in 
their duty in neglecting to make due report of 
the state of their Meeting and to desire them to be 
more careful to attend at our Monthly INIeeting 
more frequentily, or at least to send a report of 
the state of their Meeting to the Monthly Meeting 
next before every Quarterly Meeting. 

8 2 1753. Samuel Smith's request for having a 
meeting of worship settled at his house in Green- 
wich hath been deliberately considered and foras- 
mucli as he lives very remote from any meeting of 
Friends it is concluded and agreed on by this 
Meeting that tliey shall have privelege to hold a 
meeting tliere the Second First day in every 
month so long as Friends of this Monthly Meeting 
may see a service in continuing it for the promul- 
gation of the truth. 

9, 5, 1754. In addition to the usual report to 
Chesterfield Q. M. taken by Saniutl Large and 
Jacob Burdsal the following : 

We have to general satisfaction finished rebuild- 
ing our Meetinghouse according to the former 
model as we were advised by the Quarterly Meet- 
ing so far that we hold our meetings there, it 
being about as near completion as it was before it 
was burnt the whole cost of rebuilding amounts 
to upwards of one hundred and seven i^ounds and 
we fall short in payment about twenty three 
pounds which is disbiirsed to the workmen by one 
of the managers in belialf of this ]\Ieeting and 
we are but a small number and several of us not 
of ability to pay much more tlian what they have 
lately paid towards ])uilding and rebuilding of it. 
We desire that Friends of the Quarterly Meeting 
will be pleased to help us once more therein.

successively if required by this montlily meeting. 

Idem. It will be most convenient for us be- 
cause we live remote from each other that the 
Select Meeting shall be held at our Meetinghouse 
in Kingwood the sixth day of the week next 
succeeding the monthly meeting before evei\v 
Quarterly meeting. 

10 6 175(5. It is concluded by this Meeting 
that Friends belonging to Kingwood Meeting

is desired to enter the same at large in the Month- 
ly Meetings books of Minutes which is as foUov,- 
eth vizst. At a Q. M. held at Burlington the 
28th of the 2d month 1757 as to that part of the 
report from the Bethlehem requesting the advice 
of this meeting touching those that pay fines to 
screen themselves from distress when it is likely 
to come among them through their neglecting 
military service after weighty consideration it is 
the judgment of this meeting that such ought to 
be tenderly but earnestly laboured with to convince 
their judgments of tlie manifest breach of our 
ancient Christian testimony such a conduct must 
always make as well as the inconsistency of 
it with our profession and after a suitable labour 
and Christian forbearance it appears there is no 
hope of such being i-eclaimed judgment is to be 
placed upon them in the manner prescribed by 
the discipline." 

12 5 1757. The clerk is desired to enter the 
extract of the Q. M's minute concerning settling 
a youths meeting at Kingwood which is as fol- 
loweth vizt.

sideration that part of the report from Kingwood 
respecting the appointment of a youths meeting 
do order that a youths meeting be held there the 
5th day immediately following the (}. M. in the 



5th. month every year. The proposal concerning 
a youths meeting at Hardwick is left for further 
consideration. 

10 11 1757. Hardwick desires a youths meet- 
ing on the 3d. day of the same week as our M. M. 
is held in the 9th. month every year. 

10 5 1759, We have considered the request of 
Hardwick Friends for holding our M. M. there 
sometimes and for their ease and to bear part of 
the burden with them do condescend that it 
may be held there at present alternately vizt. 
every other month and to continue so till Friends

from the meeting for sufferings as follows : 

A consideralde time was spent in this meeting 
in a weighty consideration of the fluctuating state 
of ijeoples minds under the situation of public 
ai^airs. It appeared to be the sense of this meet- 
ing that it would be safest and most consistent for 
us as a religious society to keei) as mucli as possi- 
ble from mixing with the people in their human 
policies and contrivances and to forbear meeting 
in their public consultations as snares and dangers 
may arise from meetings of that kind however 
well disposed particulars may be to mitigate and 
soften the violent dispositions to prevalent it 
being a season in which it is abundantly needful 
to seek best wisdom to guide and preserve in 
safety and consistency of conduct with our reli- 
gious profession. 

9 2 177."). Agreeable to the advice contained in

MAItRIAGES. 

The following;- records of marriages are obtained 
from two sources. The first group is gathered 



from the Minutes. Where there are two names 
given the date is that of the first declaration of 
intention to marry. The marriage occurred after 
the second declaration. Wliere only one name is 
given the date is approximate. In such cases the 
name of the husband or wife is not given in the 
Minutes. The second group is taken from a book 
which bears the following title : A BOOK FOR 
REGESTEUIXG THE NAMIvS TIMES OF THE 
BIRTHS OF THE CHILDREN OF SUCH WHO 
ARE MEMBERS OF THE RELIGIOUS SOCIE- 
TY OF THE PEOPLE CALLED QUAKERS 
(AND OF SOME BURIALS OF SOME BELONG- 
ING TO KING WOOD MEETING) BELONGING 
TO THEIR MONTHLY MEETING IN KING- 
WOOD IN HUNTERDON COUNTY IN THE 
WESTERN DIVISION OF THE PROVINCE OF 
NEW JERSEY. 

The Kingwood Meeting has passed away but 
the book has l)een religiously preserved by its 
successor, the Quakertown Monthly Meeting. 
The records are interesting to thousands of persons 
scattered over the United States in whose veins 
some of this ancient blood is coursing. Names 
are found here which have taken a permanent 
place in the Nation's history; others once promi- 
inent have disappeared from this part of the 
country, are entirely unknown where originally 
they were a power, but have reappeared in other 
parts of the country ; others again sound strangely 
and are generally unknown. These records and 
the minutes represent the everyday life of a sturdy 
race; there is a vein of sadness running through 
them and a puritanic idea of life which opens up 
to us the mental frame of those of our ancestors 
who came to this country to escape religious 
persecution. 

The cover of the book is an old deed, sewed on 
with coarse thread and long stitches, the parch- 
ment having been cut and patched to get the 
proper size. A great deal of the writing has been 
obliterated by age and handling but some things 
can be made out. The deed whicli was executed 
in "the Fifth Year of tlie reign of Queen ANN" 
is evidently the story of the sale of a piece of land 
situated "between Ridley Creek and Crum Creek 
in the County of Chester and in the Province of 
Pennsilvania. " John Wood is the grantor and 
John FFawcet the grantee; John Dawson's name 
appears and the dates 1708 and 1710. The writ- 
ing is so faded that it is impossible to get a con- 
nected description of the property. John Simcock 
was Deputy Recorder. Those familiar with the 
History of the Society of Friends and of Chester 
County will recognize all these names as belonging 
to prominent people. The connection between 
the deed, Chester County, Pennsylvania, and the

In the folio wing records of marriages no attempt 
is made to reproduce the formula used in making 
the record except in the first one recorded. This 
one is given verbatim as a sample of the wording. 
The wording is not exactly the same in all but 
the diiference is due to the writing having been 
done by ditYerent persons. The groom signed tir.st, 
then the newly made wife and then the witnesses. 
I have separated the first two from the others by 
a semi-colon. These names help to locate many 
persons whose personality was supposed to have 
disippeared entirely. Several names could not be 
deciphered with certainty; in such case an interro- 
gation point has been enclosed in parenthesis. 
The order of the records has been generally fol- 
lowed. The nearness of two names sometimes in- 
dicates husband and wife. 

5 10 1752 Whereas Benjamin Canby of 
Solesbury in the County of Bucks & Province 
of Pennsyllvania & Martha Whitson of Am well in 
the County of Hunterdon New West Jersey hath 
declared their intentions of Marriage before sev- 
eral Monthly Meetings of the People called Qua- 
kers according to the good Order used amongst 
them t*^- having consent of Parents & Relations

MEMORIALS. 

In the following obituary notices the spelling 
and puHCtuation have been preserved. Being a 
"faithful attender at Meetings both for worship 
and discipline" seems to have been one of the 
tests of a correct walk and conversation. 
A Memorial of the Time of Death and 

BuEiAL OF Joseph King, Senior. 

Our antient Friend Joseph King departed this 
life the 10th. Day of the 12th. Month 1761. In the 
Seventy eight year of his age, and was Inter'd in 
Friends Burying Ground at King wood the Eleventh 
day of the Same Month. He was not, as could be 
perceived attended by any Violent illness, and he 
departed quietly as one going to Sleep. He was 
esteem'd amongst us, to be an Honest Sober Inno- 
cent well minded man, a good & Inoffensive Neigh- 
bor, well beloved of Friends & Others, for which 
reasons he was appointed an Elder amongst us 
before the Select-meeting was settled here, and 
for the Same reasons hath been continued an 
Elder amongst us ever Since until his Death, and 
Ave doubt not, but that he is gone to Eternal rest. 
A Mejioeial of the Time of the Death and 

Burial of Samuel Willson, Senior. 

Our antient Friend Samuel Willson Died thee 
Nineteenth Day of the Twelfth month 1761 and 
was Inter'd in Friends Burying Ground at King- 
wood the Twenty-Second Day of the Same Month 
about the Eightieth year of his Age. He was a 
Minister many years which in a general way was 
well received amongst his Friends. He was a 
Diligent attender of our Meetings both of Wor- 
shop and Discipline, till of late years when 
through his ability & Natural Strength failed so 
much that he was not able to Stay During the 
time that Meetings are generally held. His Life 
and Conversation (in a good degree) was Solid 
Sober and Orderly, agreeable to his Ministry. He 
was Suddenly Siezed with Death not Lying any 
time Sick so that he had no time then to declare 
any that might be on his mind to Speak to any of 
his Friends. Yet we ha\e good reason to Hope 
when we consider his former Conduct A\hile he 
was in his Health and Strength that he lias 
gone to Enjoy that Immortal Crown that is laid 
up for the Righteous. 

Aged 80 years, 5 months, & 14 days.

KiNGWooD Monthly Meeting's Testimony 

CONCERNING SAMUEL LARGE SENIOR. 

This our said Antient Friend Samuel Large De- 
pjirted this Life at his House in Kingwood, The 
9th. Day of the 6th Montli 1705, and was decently 
Inter'd in Friends Baring place there. 

He was Religiously Enclined when young in 
years (as he related at times) By being Early Vis- 
ited, insomuch, hethought he could freely Declare 
to others of the Goodness & merciful kind dealings 
of God to his Soul. But for want of Giving dili- 
gent heed to the inshineings of that inward Light 
which had Measureably Redeemed him, he came 
to a loss of the Sweet and Heavenly Communion 
which he had been made a Sharer of, and l>egan to 
join with Folly and Vanities which youth is apt 
to, but in Process of time being re-Visited by an 
All Merciful God, Gave up to bear the Cross, and 
about the Tliirtieth Year of his Age, he was made 
willing to give up to bear a publick Testimony, & 
to Declare to others what God had done for his 
Soul, Avhich Testimony was Living and Powerful, 
ct Tending to the refreshing and Watering of the 
Lords Heritage and People, being often concer'd, 
where his Lot was cast, to invite and persuade 
people to seek the Lord for tliemselves that 
So they might know the work of Regeneration 
wrought and Completed in and for themselves, he 
freely gave up to Spend both his time and sub- 
stance on Truths account, when call'd thereto. 
He visited Several Provinces on this Continent, 
and Some divers times in his Younger years he 
was diligent in attending Meetings both for Wor- 
ship and Discipline, and Quarterly and yearly 
meetings when in Health and ability of Body, he 
was a Generous kind open hearted Friend ready 
to do good to all, but especially to the Household 
of Faith, very ready in a.ssisting the Servants and 
Messengers of Christ, when Tiaveling on that ac- 
count. He brought up his Children in Plainess 
of Speech and Aparel, a great Encourager of his 
Family and otheis, in attending Meetings, that 
they might discharge their Duties which they (3we 
unto their maker. In the Later part of his days, 
when old, he met with Exercises & great Difficul- 
ties, Yet (tho in his declining age, and Natural 
Capacities weak ) We have good reason to believe, 
as to an inward State of Mind, he Lived past & 
through them all, and that lie Died in Peace with 
the Lord and in good will to all mankind And is 
Entered into Rest and Reaps the Reward of the 
Faithful, where Troubles and Exercises are at 
an End.

Kingwood Monthly Meeting's Testimony 
Concerning Jeremiah Williams. 
Our antient friend and Elder Jeremiah Wil- 
liams came to rezide amongst us Recommended 
from a Monthly Meeting of friends on Long Island 
as an Honest Sober and orderly member of our 
Religious Society in Unity and many years he Avas 
a servisable member and a Diligent and Constant 
attender of our meetings for Worship and Discip- 
line, until he Suffer'd his mind to be too much 
Cast Down imder the Thoughts of Some Disap- 
pointments and Troubles he meet with. He did 
not attend our Meetings So Constant as he had 
heretofore Done but we have Good reason to 
believe Some time before his Death he Witnessed 
in a great measure an overcoming his former 
Troubles and Exercises. He was a generous and 
kind open Harted man in Entertaining Friends 
and such as Travel abroad in the Service of Truth. 
Some time before his Death he was attended with 
many bodily afflictions, being helpless above too 
years, which he bore with Great patience. Some- 
times he would say conld I think I am like Job, 
he l)eing atend with many ails ; often desiring to 
be Deliver'd if it Avas the Lord's Will. He De- 
parted thisXife at the House of his Son Benjamin 
in Penna. with whom he had Liv'd for some 
years, on the 15th. day of the 5th month 1766 
aged 83 years wanting about one month and was 
Decently buried in friends beurying Ground at 
Kingwood. 

Kingwood Monthly Meeting's Testimony 
Concerning Mary Simcock. 

This our antient Friend deceased Daring the 
time she resided amongst us, which was upwards 
of Thirty Years was a diligent attender of Meet- 
ings both on First and other Days of the week, in 
which she was a goo^l Example in patient waiting 
on the Lord, to feel the Renewings of His divine 
power. She had also a gift in the Ministery and 
tlio not large in Testimony, yet faithf^^liy Laliour- 
ing in the Ability received was edefying to those 
whose Harts were prepared of the Lord to receive 
His messengers tho small in appearance She was a 
peaceable kind Neighbor, and well esteemed by 
all and altho through Age and Infirmity of body 
she was render'd incapable of attending Meetings 
for some years before she died, yet she retained 
her Love to truth and Friends, and we Doubt not 
has made a happy Change, and now Enjoying the 
Reward of her Labours in the Mansions of Eter- 
nal Rest. The following is a brief memoral con- 



23 



cerning her, written by lier Husband John Simcock, 
which we haveing Unity with, Subjoin. She was 
daughter of Nicholas and Jane Wain of the North- 
ern Liberties of tlie City of Phila. honest Friends 
to whom she was obedient in her youth, and as 
she grew in years she was Concern 'd to be a sensi- 
ble witness of the operation of truth in her own 
Heart, and keeping Carefully under this concern, 
she was niaiiy times sweetly Comforted in spirit, 
which Favour she prized above the Enjoyment of 
earthly Treasure. She was likewise concerned 
for the good of her fellow Mortals and after some 
Keasonings in her own mind gave up to declare in 
a publick manner what the Lord had done for 
her Soul. Her testimony was well receiv'd after 
which she frequently appeared in Publick as long 
as she was of ability to attend Meetings, and when 
her natural strength and faculties were much im- 
pair'd it was evident that she still retain'd that 
good part which had Ijeen her Earl}' choice, for 
when several Friends of Kingwood Meeting came 
to visit us a few Months before her Departure, in 
time of our silent Avaiting she sat still and quiet 
and after some Time sitting, appear'd in publick 
Testimony in a solid sensiable manner, and in 
supplication also, which plainly demonstrated, 
that the Lord still favoured with his living pres- 
ence, giving Strength and ability to her who had 
really no strength of her own. She was a loving 
faithfull wife, and a true Helpmeet in things that 
pretain to the Interest of our Immortal Nature an 
affectionate and Exemplary Mother, patient in 
affliction of Body of Mind, and Departed quietly 
without any apparent Illness 19th of the 5th. 
month 1771 in the 85th year of her Age, as Min- 
ister upwards of 50 years, and I have no Doubt 
but that she is now in the Enjoyment of endless 
Felicety, haveing received the Crown which the 
Lord a Righteous Judge shall give to all those 
who love his appearance and walk uprightly as 
she did. John Simcock 2G-9-1771. 

Kingwood Monthly Meeting's Testimony 
Concerning our vVntient Friend and El- 
der Richard Lundy. ^ 

He was the son of Richard and Jane Lundy of 
Bucks County in Pena. Professor of the truth 
with us born the 20th of the 3d month 1692. A 
man much Esteemed amongst Friends and others 
being of a meek and Quiet Spirit Exemplary in 
Life and Conversation and a patern of plainness 
and humility, diligent in attending Meetings for 
worship and Discipline duly observing the hour 
Appointed and in Contribution for the Service 
thereof, gave freely according to his ability he 
often gave up to attend Monthly Quarterly and 
Yearly Meetings with great willingness Even in 



his Declining Years untill the Indisposition of his 
wife rendered that servise impracticable, he was 
an affectionate Husband a tender Father and Kind 
friend Punctual and just in his Dealings among 
men Evidencing to the world that he was Con- 
cerned to do to others as he would have them do 
to him. His house was freely open for those who 
Travelling in the Work of the Ministery whose 
Company he greatly valued and often ChearfuUy 
Travel'd Avith Such as a gide to other meetings ; 
he Lived in the fear of the Lord : and was much 
Concern 'd that Love and unity might be obtained 
among friends and Deeply aft'ected when anything 
of a contrary Nature arose to obstruct it. In his 
last Illness which was but short he intirely re- 
fused the help of any Physition Signifying his 
Resignation to the Divine will whether in life or 
Death : and Continued in a patient frame of mind 
when Sensible till his Departure, which was on 
the 28th of 2d. month 1772 aged near 80 years : 
antl altho our Loss is Great we are Comforted in 
the hope That he is gone to inherit the Crown im- 
mortal : which is laid up for all those who Love 
and fear the Lord. He was Decently Buried in 
friends Burying ground at Hardwick the 29th of 
the same : attended by a large number of friends 
and others. Signed by order of sd. Meeting at 
Hardwick the loth of the 8th month 1772 bye

A Testimony from the Monthly Meeting at 
Kingwood Concerning John Simcock. 

This our v^ntient friend and Elder John Sim- 
cock was from the time of his coming to reside 
among us which was upwards of thirty years : a 
man of few words and a quiet inoffensive spirit, 
which gained him the Love and Esteem of his 
Friends and Neighbors : Very Patient in Afflic- 
tion of which he had a large Shear, and Lob- 
boured under the Infirmities attendant on old 
age, with apparent Resignation of mind. Divers 
times Espressing his freedom for Dissolution 
.which he waited for, and hoped he should pa- 
tiently wait the Lord's time that being the best 
time. He was a Diligent attender of our Reli- 
gious meetings both for NVorship and Discipline, 
while of ability of Body being Exemplary therein, 
in patient waiting and we have to believe he was 
often Comforted therein having been heard to say 
he did not attend meetings because others did, 
but because he found a secret benefit in so doing. 
In short we may say he was a Tender Husband 
an affectionate Father, and Kind Neighbor and 
not long before his Decease, bore a Testimony in 
his Family against the Excessive use of Spiritous 
liquors. He departed this Life the 23rd. of 4th 
month 1773, in the 88tli year of his age, and was 



24 



Decently interred in friends Burying Ground at 
King-wood aforcsixid.

month 1774, in the 58th year of his age, w;is fro;n 
his youth a man of a peaceable and Quiet spirit, 
one who sincerely loved the truth and its faithful 
followers, and being Concerned for many years to 
live near unto, and witness the influence of the 
Blessed principle which we profess, he btcame a 
Diligent attender of our religious Meetings both 
for worship and Discipline wherein he was a 
patient humble waiter for the ariseing of Divine 
Life wherelty he witnessed his Strength to be re- 
newed, and often Expressed his satisfaction in so 
attending. He was thus Enabled to Lead an 
honest Circumspect Life, being a good E.Kamjile 
among us, in maintaining our Christian Testi- 
mony in its primitive simplicity, and altho he had 
not a publick Testimony to bear, yet we Esteemed 
him a preacher of Righteousness in his Life and 
Conversation. He was a tender Husband an 
Affectionate Father a Kind Neighbour and very 
Charitable to the poor. Wherefore in great Love 
to him, and Esteem for his memory we have 
given this brief Testimony Concerning him.

Memorial of thic Monthly Meeting of King- 
wood Concerning Mary Hoknor Deceased. 

She was born at Mansfield in the County of 
Burlington, West New Jersey, in the Year 1736, 
of Parents in membeiship with Friends ; her 
Father, Thomas Potts, dying when she was a 
child, she was educated by her Mother, Sarah 
Potts, in the Profession of the truth as htld l)y 
us : and early discovered a quickness of Appre- 
hension and Strength of Understanding beyond 
many others, her tender Mind while in her Mi- 
nority, was sensibly reached with a divine Visi- 
tation of the Love of God ; and as she grew to 
riper years, she was preserved in a good Decree of 
circumspect Walking in his Fear, her Conversa- 
tion being Serious, sensible and guarded ; and 
often times her grave Deportment was useful as a 
Check to her Companions. In the year 1757 she 
was marryed to Isaac Horner, and tilled the Sta- 
tion of a faithfull and prudent Wife and Mother. 
In the beginning of the year 17G8 She appeared in 
puVjlick as a Minister, her Testimony, being Short 
and Lively, was generally well received. In the 
year 1770 She removed with her husband & Fam- 



ily to settle within the Compass of this Meeting, 
and has since resided amongst us, to the time of 
her Deceixse. Through the Influence of the Love 
of God, shed abroad in her heart, by a life of un- 
affected Piety and a godly Circomspection of Con- 
duct and Conversation, she hath obtained a good 
Report, not only amongst us with whom she was 
joined in religious Communion, but also amongst 
People of all ranks and religious Persuasions ; 
being remarkable for her unreserved. Charitable 
Openness and innocent Freedom of Deportment 
towards all. In 1772 she had the Concurrence of 
This Meeting in a Visit to some of the Meetings 
in the Lower part of this Province ; and the suc- 
ceeding Winter in visiting all the Families within 
the Verge of this Monthly Meeting in Company 
with sundry other Friends ; since which she has 
visited all the Meetings and most, if not all the 
Private Families belonging to the yearly ^Meeting 
of Flushing ; in which she had good Service and 
was generally well received, as Testifyed in a 
Number of Certilicates Produced at her Return 
She afterwards, in Company with Samuel East- 
burn and others, visited a number of the Families 
belonging to the Monthly meeting of Bucking- 
ham. In 1775 she obtained a Minut of the Con- 
cerrence of this Meeting, to visit the ]\Ieetings of 
Friends along the Sea Shore, and in the lower Part 
of this Province in which Service she caught a 
sevear Cold, which brought on a pretty swift De- 
cay ; under wliich She languised up wards of Eight 
months, near half of which Time she nevertheless, 
attended Meetings During her Indisposition, her 
quiet Composure of Spirit, and cheerfull Resigna- 
tion to the will of her heavenly Master was truly 
edifying. She told a Friend who visited her not 
long before her Departure that tho Death ap- 
peared a dark Passiige, yet all was Light beyond 
it. And to another, who bid her farewell at part- 
ing, she said, I shall fare well when I am red of 
this Body. And She was remarkably clear in her 
underetandiiig and said, tho bodily weakness 
prevailed, yet her Spirit felt no Dimunitiou of 
Strength ; and Exhorted those about her to place 
their Reliance on the Lord alone, a Confidence 
Siiid she, in which I have never been disappointed. 
The Evening before She was visibly struck with 
Death, broke fourth into Expressions of Praise to 
the Allmighty's and liumble acknowledgements 
that he had to her, performed all his I'romise.s 
and more ; had prepared and sanctifyed her and 
brought her to that hour ; and that She should 
praise him as long as she continued in the Body, 
and at the Conclusion chearfuUy surrender Hus- 
band and Children and all that he had given her, 
again into his Hands. In or near her last Hour 
she beckenoned her Hirsband to come and take his 



25 



last Farewell of her, and then, in a Composed 
Whisper, said thou art a welcome Messenger — 
thou art a wellcome, take me quickly. She dyed 
on the 31st. Day of the 5th. month 1776 in the 
40th year of her Age, and was buryed in Friends 
Burying Ground, having been upwards of Eight 
years a Minister. Signed in and on behalf of sd.

FRIENDS SUFFERINGS. 

The following list of fines collected during the 
Revolution seems to show that the collectors were 
not specially moved with human kindness. There 
was little equality between the amount of the fine 
and the amount collected. If these records are 
correct the victim of the collector was not always 
the person who was fined.

ings Belong, to Kingwood, Preparative Meeting
