Ancestors of John Henry HADAWAY

      84. Jacob BARRETT, born 01 Apr 1730 in Chester Co, PA; died 28 Feb 1802. He was the son of 168. Arthur BARRETT and 169. Lydia CHAMBERS.

Notes for Jacob BARRETT:
Notes from Bruce Barrett:
Jacob Barrett was youngest of the nine sons of Arthur Barrett.
Jacob moved 19 March 1739 with his family to the Quaker community in
Frederick County, Virginia, Hopewell MM. In 1745 he was mentioned in
the will of his father Arthur. Again, in 1763, he was mentioned in
the will of his brother John. In 1767 an abstract of the Hopewell
Minutes records that Jacob was disowned. He later moved (about
1772/3), along with other families from Hopewell MM, to Bush River MM
in Newberry County, SC. Jacob petitioned to be granted 100 acres in
SC in February of 1773 and a tract of 100 acres in Newberry County was
surveyed for him the following month, but he does not seem to have
taken possession of the land. Instead the land was eventually
granted, some 11 years later, to Reason Reagan. (However a plat in
1778 records this same adjacent property as belonging to Jacob
Barrett.) Jacob's children were granted a certificate from Hopewell
to Bush River 7 Nov 1774 and they were received at Bush River 24 Feb
1776. It is not completely clear from that record that Jacob himself
actually remained in SC. The certificate, as recorded both at
Hopewell and at Bush River, is for the children of Jacob Barrett.
Jacob was disowned by the Hopewell MM in 1767 and Bruce comments that
he has not found any record of his reinstatement. However, since he
was still alive until at least 1773, Bruce remarks that it does not
seem that his children would have been received at Bush River unless
Jacob were already a member, present, and in good standing. However,
it may be the case that having been disowned in 1767, Jacob continued
attending Meetings for Worship, but without the privileges of
membership. There is one further mention of Jacob Barrett, as witness
(along with James Barrett) to a land transaction in 1788, but it seems
more likely that this is Jacob, Jr.

Birth: 1 APR 1730 in Chester County, Pennsylvania 1
Death: 28 FEB 1802
This death date is from the Family Bible of James Barrett. At this
time there is no conclusive proof that it refers to this Jacob,
speculative father of James. The entry:
Jacob Barrett Sr. died February the 28th, 1802.
