The following Account concerning William Brown senior

and some of his predecessors and connections, (he being one of the

first settlers in Nottingham,) was taken in writing in the year

and was produced and read at the monthly meeting held at East

Nottingham, the 28th of the 1st mouth. 1786, and being approved,

•was allowed to be entered on record in the book for births and

burials, belonging to said monthly meeting; as it was apprehended

to contain some profitable memorandums concerning the pious an-

3tors of many living in these parts.

 

Certify' d on the said Meeting's behalf,

 

By GEORGE CHURCHMAN.

 

 

 

An account of the envincement, and some remarkable cir-

cumstances relating to the father of the above named William

Brown senior, in England; whose name is believed to have been

William, and whose sons William and James came over to

live in Pennsylvania in early times, tho' not in the first vessels

that arrived.

 

The latter residence of their said father was supposed to be in

Bedfordshire, or Northamptonshire, in a village or parish called

Puddington, near Wellingborough; though before, it is said his

dwelling was in another part of England, of which we have no

clear account.

 

By his son's relation he was some time in communion with the

Baptists, afterwards joining with the sect called Puritans, and is

said to have been a teacher among both, and a seeking, religious

man whose mind was drawn into careful endeavours after the

mity of Life. About the first going forth of that eminent minister of the Gospel, William Bewsbury, he came to the town where

ris pious man. dwelt, who observed him as he was passing along,

and taking notice of the solidity of his countenance invited him to

turn in and break bread with him; who accepted the invitation,

and when they sat down the said William Brown had a little ceremony or what is called grace before meat. William Bewsbury was

invited to help himself but sitting in a grave manner he replied

" if thou wilt first partake with me I shall be free to partake with

thee." After a short silence he was drawn forth in Testimony

beginning with these words, " Earth! Earth! hear the word of

the Lord;" branching out in a powerful manner which effectually

reached and convinced this religious man. After this lie accompanied W. Dewsbury on the way towards a neighboring village

and recommended liim to a certain man's house, who was likewise

religionslj inclined and was also effectually convinced on TV. D.'s

 

When William Brown came hack his wife asked him wherefore he

ight that madman to their house: he answered "why woman

he hath brought the Eternal Truth i fGod to us." She was some-

what affected and did not then know the meaning ofitj but becoming

more inuw. . . jhtful, she was also convinced.

 

William Dewsbury returning some time afterwards, it is men-

tioned that William Brown obtained leave for him to attend at the

Parish Church, so called, and by his powerful testimony there

many people were convinced. But the Priests and others who

 hard hearted were much enraged against Friends, becoming

cruel both in speech and ill treatment; terming the power which

attended their ministry, witchcraft, and endeavouring to stir up

I e secution, which greatly incr< ¦<¦ I in those days.

 

Aiu-r the said William Brown's convincement his landlord sent

him a couple of young hounds to iced and raise for him. being a

wild airy man and given to sporting and merriment, but his tenant

was not free to give countenance to such vain diversions and there-

tore did not comply with his desire. — at which his landlord was

much displeased, and having generally paid his rent at a set time

everv half year to a steward appointed to receive the rents, he had

not been careful to demand receipts, the steward appearing honest

and trusty; but the landlord out of humour with him as above

hinted, taking advantage of his neglect, came and demanded the

rent. He told him it was paid at the proper day. The landlord

then queried if he had a receipt, to whom he answered "jS t o." as

he had not been in the way of asking receipts, expecting there

would be n uon: yet the cruel man said "except you will

take your oath that it is paid, you shall pay it to me:" and being

of tender conscience on that account because he believed our Sav-

iour .had forbidden, all swearing, this Friend had to pay his rent

over again. After this the landlord was bitter and not fond of see-

ing him. being probably condemned in himself for such usage, yet

tamed him off the farm, and Friends at that time being viewed in

an unfavourable light by many because of their singularity and

conscientious .scruples in divers matters which differed from the

corrupt way.- of the world, it occasioned him considerable difficulty

before he found another farm to settle on to his mind.

 

From his industry and upright conduct on the second farm he

was in good repute and much in favor with his new landlord. The

Lord prospered him in his worldly affairs and otherwise.

 

The time of the decease of this valuable man is computed to be

about the year I664 r having been an approved minister. On his

death bed and near the cl se fhislifehewas abundantly favoured

vitli a sense of the Divino presence near him. greatly to his comfort

and the encouragement of his children, in a holy conformity to the

srossof^ hrist. whereby the sting of death is removed, and the soul

enabled to triumph oyer H.ell and the grase. For although, fts

the trial of the faith and patience of his saints, and for the further-

ance of his own purpose in spreading Gospel light and glory in fchg

Earth to discover the corruptions of men in their empty forms of

religion, and to shake the Kingdom of Antichrist, the Lord may

permit his chosen servants to pass through great tribulations and

persecutions, yet he manitesteth himself to be a rich rewarder of

those who are diligent to seek and serve him through all that is

suffered to come upon them, of which it appears ( by the account

.mentioned by his sou William aforesaid,) this faithful friend, our

predecessor, was a living witness in his latter days; expressing af-

.ter this manner to his wife before he departed, " although the Lord

whom I have sought and served, hath been my staff and comfort

through life — he hath often .manifested his power to me eminent-

ly, yet his divine favor seems now to be more than ever before;

and for thy comfort he hath even shewed me that thou shalt live

to bring up all our children, and they shall be blessed and he all

favoured to keep their habitations in the Truth;" which was ful-

filled according to the account given by his said son. who men-

tioned, "lama witness that this was a true prophecy, for I am

the youngest of his nine children, ( he having had six sons beside,

and two daughters,) who all lived and were favoured to die in unity

with Friends."

 

William Brown, son of the aforesaid Friend, by the account we

have was born about the year 1656, and was perhaps not more than

eight years old at his fathers death. He hinted a remarkable cir-

cumstance that occurred in his very young years, nearly as follows,

viz. In or about the year 1663, persecutions in England having

arisen very high and hot against Friends for attending their re-

ligious meetings &c; his parents had suffered greatly and were

much stripped of their property for lines &c, and he though a

child about seven years of age, became very thoughtful of the

cause of these things; the old adversary, Satan, persuading him

that such a religion was not right that occasioned people to be

brought under so great difficulty on account of it, and that he who

required such things of them was a hard master and not a good

being. These insinuations became so strong in his mind that one

night after he went to bed, he was sorely tempted to curse the

Almighty; under which trial a great terror came over him; — he

was afraid to do so, and thereupon roared out aloud, which affright-

ed his mother that she came to his bedside to see what ailed him;

but being favoured to resist the tempter, he was quickly helped so

far over the temptation as to stop crying out, ( being ashamed to

tell his mother what happened to him,) and before she came to

him he was quiet again. His mother observing him so. concluded

he had been asleep and was affected by a dream, so returned with-

out speaking to him. He kept his condition to himself and did not

discover it to any one at that time, and being thus preserved, he

was not tried with the like again. It had a tendency to open his

understanding and to convince him fully that his parents were

right and that the religion they suffered fur, was the truth itself,

which iu the eud makcth men free indeed, and enables them to

wish well and to seek the good of all men, even those who hate

and persecute them.

 

After William Penn obtained a grant from King Charles II. for

the province of Rennsylyania, and upon the proposal thereupon of

many Friends remoying from England to settle in America, therp

was a doubt in the minds of some (who were valuable) about the

propriety of such a removal, lest it should be deemed flying from

persecution ; but William Lewsbury travelling into those parte

where the Browns lived, in or near Northamptonshire, had a meet-

ing there and proved as the means of settling and reconciling ths

minds of some that were in doubts, expressing in his testimony to

this effect: i; The Lord is about to plant the wilderness of America

with a choice vine or noble seed which shall grow and flourish;" and

in the language of a prophet divinely inspired, he added nearly

thus: •¦ I see them. I see them, under his blessing arising into a

state of prosperity:" thereby fortelling the spreading of Truth in

America.

 

James Brown and William Brown, sons of the Friend first men-

tioned, sometime after this concluded to remove over to this count-

ry; but James, it is apprehended by some, came over first, in a

single state. William's first wife could not give up to it cheerfully

but he haying a clear sense of duty therein, signified that the Lord

wonderfully made way for and a.->i.-ted him, insomuch that all dif-

ficulties relative to his removal disappeared, and bis affairs were

settled to satisfaction; being marvelously helped many times and

divers ways on the passage and after his arrival.

 

He landed at New York about the year 1696. His wife died at

nea. James Brown (by account.) settled first near Markus

Hook, in Chester County, Pennsylvania, where his brother William,

after he came in. dwelt fur a time, but did nut purchase land there

as that did not appear to be the fixed place for their residence, for

about the year 1701, William apprehended it his duty to remove

further westward, and accordingly in 1702 he removed with his

family to settle at Nottingham, about 40 miles distant from Mar-

kus Hook; a large tract of land being laid out there in that year

and called by that name, being deemed in Pennsylvania, but was

situate on the border of Maryland, and was accounted far back in

the wilderness. His brother James after some time came and

settled in the same neighborhood where he dwelt the remainder

of his time, and deceased about the year 1715, being a religious

man and of a good character, but not favoured with a capacity or

talent e<]Ual to his brother William. His wife's name was Honour,

the daughter of William Claton.

 

Another circumstance worthy to be preserved in memory was related nearly as follows. While James and William Brown lived look aforesaid, and after George Keith became ring served from the state of humility which he ad had gained a number of adherents in his fallen whomjfames Brown was in some danger of being

caught in. having at first a favourable opinion of Keith, who com-

ing to their meeting at Chichester, he spake or preached largely,

using some arrogant and lofty expressions, beyond the simplicity of

the gospel; expressing that the hearers might know his doctrine

was right by the power that attended it. After this meeting James

and William had some conversation on the subject, wherein James

expressed approbation with Keith's service and asked William what

he thought of George Keith now; was not he satisfied'!* William

being a deep feeling man was doubtful and more cautious of join-

ing with a spirit which he thought was leading some into a separa-

tion from the Truth, therefore replied to his brother; " I am satisfied,

but it is in this, that he is in a wrong spirit:" which James rather

took amiss and thereupon was about to leave his brother hastily,

but William stop'd him or stepped after him, querying of him

whether he did not remember how they used to feel at their meet-

ings when in England, though they were but as lads; and so

mentioned nearly to the following import concerning the love and-

melting seasons they were then often sensible of under the powerful

operation of the pure principle of Love and Light. " The living-

ministers advised us to close attention to the pure principle in the

silence of all flesh, and the divine savour of life attended; which

seems to me not so in Keith's doctrine, but a product of the

ereaturely wisdom which scatters, and hurts the life. In this

country we have come under a different dispensation from what we

witnessed before being released from those former trials, and are

come where employment of another kind has taken up our time.

 

We have been looking out and allowed to provide towards an out-

ward inheritance, and settlements for ourselves and families, free

from disturbance or persecution; but let us remember that the

truth is still as precious as ever, and perhaps it is now time for us

more fully to resume our former exercise of spirit, that we may be

preserved from harms and become deeper ami more fully grounded

so as not to be turned aside or shaken by blasts which may be suf-

fered to rise for a trial of our foundations." This conversation had

some reach on his brother James, so that he appeared more calm

and settled in his mind. The next day Keith had a meeting at

8be house of Henry iieynolds, who lived near, and he knowing that

James Brown had rather favoured him, on his way to the meeting,

called at James's house and asked if he waK going to meeting; at

which James hesitated: whereupon George Keith alighted and went

in. intimating that if he began to be dissatisfied he would satisfy

him; and though he used many words, all did not avail, for James

went not to meeting and was favoured with preservation from fur-

ther harm by that wily, separating spirit.

 

Some of the sons or descendents of the person first mentioned,

We have understood, removed from Northamptonshire to Bedford

yliire, and were a numerons family there, insomuch that when

William Brown from Pennsylvania, ( who was his great grandson.)

was in- England in the year 1752, he mentioned that the members

of the meetings of Friends in the town of pjiton, were many of

them of that name, or 'descendants from .that stock of Browns.

 

The memorandums of the before occurrences were taken down

from the relation of William Brown last mentioned, (in the 80th

year of his age): he retaining the same fresh and lively in his

memory; having divers times heard the substance of it related by

William Brown senior, who was his grandfather's brother.

 

He lived until about the 91st year of his age, remaining tender

and lively in spirit, and retaining till near the close of his life, a

clear sense and rememberance of the power and workings of Truth

in the time of severe persecution, in his minority.

 

He deceased in West Nottingham, Pennsylvania, the 23rd of

6th month. 1746; having lived there about 44 years, in good re-

pute for his integrity; being an elder in the Church, and a

substantial Friend,

 

 

 

The foregoing account is perhaps in the main correct,

but the Browns certainly arrived in this country earlier than has

been intimated. James Brown appears to have been a resident at

Marcus Hook before William Penn obtained a grant for Pennsyl-

vania. His father inlaw, William Clayton, inrinigrated in 1677 T

bringing his family with him; and if James was married in this

country, he must have arrived as early as 1680. He was by trade;

a weaver, but doubtless carried on farming to some extent, like

most of the tradesmen among the early colonists. He obtained a

patent, dated 2<Jth of 12th month, 1683, for one hundred and fif-

teen acres of land on Chichester creek, which he called ¦• Poding-

ton." This he conveyed to his son William, 21st of June, 1705,

who sold it to Frances Bowater, (widow.) 21st of Feb., 1707-8.

 

James Brown owned several tracts or pieces of land in Chiches-

ter township, which he sold to various persons, before his removal

to Nottingham. His brother William came from England in J0 S 2.

or 1683. He was married in 1684, to Ann Mercer; in 1699, to

Catharine Williams of Philadelphia; and a fourth time in 1711. to

Mary Matthews. The name of his first wife, was Dorothy.

Brown, though incomplete, may be of interest to some. The infor-

mation- is chiefly obtained from the records of Nottingham Month-

ly Meeting. The writer would be pleased to receive any further

information which may be in the hands of private individuals.

Notes for James Brown:

According to James E. Bellarts in "The Descent of Some of Our Quaker Ancestors...," James Brown was probably living in Marcus Hook before William Penn obtained a grant for Pennsylvania. His father-in-law, William Clayton, apparently arrived in 1677. Bellarts belived James Brown and William Clayton came to Burlington County, New Jersey on the ship "Kent" in 1677, one of the first ships to ascend the Delaware Bay, but further research shows this William Clayton may have been confused with another of the same name who also settled in Chester County, Pennsylvania very early. James Brown and his brother William, who came over later, were members of the first jury under British rule, according to Bellarts, on July 1, 1684. The English had just taken over this area from the Dutch, who in turn took over from Swedish rule.

Browne - Honour Clayton

The Browne family England orginally spelled the name Browne but in coming to America and joining the Society of Friends dropped the "e" for simplicity and have since written the name as Brown.

 

James Brown, as he came to spell the name, was born in the parish of Sywell, Northamptonshire, England, March 27, 1656 and died at Nottingham, Pennsylvania in 1716.

 

James Brown came to America in the ship "Kent" which arrived from London August 16, 1677, at New Castle on the Delaware. He settled first at Burlington, New Jersey, but remained only a short time there removing to Chichester of Marcus Hook in 1678. He obtained a patent, dated Dec 20, 1683 for 115 acres of land on the Chichester Creek, which he named "Podington" undoubtedly for his old home "Puddington" in England. With his brother, William he purchased nine hundred acres of the land William Penn granted to the Friends in Nottingham and they became known as the Browns of Nottingham and from these early ancestors are descended many well known men. In 1681 there were but eleven heads of Quaker families in the country before the arrival of William Penn, and among them was James Brown.

 

James Brown married at the Burlington Meetinghouse June 8, 1679 Honour Clayton, daughter of Hon. William Clayton. They had six children; James, William, Jeremiah, Margery, Daniel and Mary.

From the History of Cecil County: http://www.archive.org/stream/historyofcecilco00john/historyofcecilco00john_djvu.txt

 

Nottingham was the outgrowth of the settlements on the Delaware around New Castle, which at the time of the settlement of the former place was second only to New York in commerce and population. The pioneer settlers of Nottingham were two brothers, James and William Brown, who, on pack-horses, boldly started out from New Castle in the summer or fall of 1701 into the wilderness to make for themselves a home. They were said to have been influenced in their opinion of the fertility of the soil by the great size of the forest trees with which it was covered.

 

They stopped near a large spring, which is yet to be seen on the north side of the road leading from the Brick Meetinghouse (East Nottingham Friends Meeting) to Rising Sun, and a short distance east of the road which forms the boundary between the Sixth and Ninth election districts. It is on the farm now owned by William Cameron.

 

Near this spring was a favorite camping ground of the Indians. Their trail from the great valley of Chester County to the head of the bay, whither they were accustomed to resort for fish and also to trade at the post on Palmer's Island, led directly past it. Here the brothers Brown unloaded their weary horses and went to work felling the forest trees and clearing the land for the purpose of making room for dwelling-houses and engaging in agricultural pursuits.

 

The small amount of provisions brought with them were soon exhausted, and they were obliged to return to New Castle for a fresh supply. Other Friends accompanied them on their return to Nottingham, and by the next spring they had accommodations for several families. The first house, erected by William Brown, is said to have been built on the site now occupied by the house of William Cameron.

 

This is the traditional story of the first settlement in Nottingham that has been handed down from generation to generation of their descendants, some of whom yet occupy part of the land upon which their forefathers settled.

 

It is very probable that the brothers Brown preceded the other settlers a short time, and that the others were acquainted with them and admired the fertility of their land and the beauty of the location, and were for these reasons induced to ask for the privilege of taking up the Nottingham lots. This name was applied to Nottingham Township after the Revolutionary War by the Legislature of Maryland in an act for the relief of the owners of the land, which, though granted by Penn, was found to be in Maryland when the dispute between him and Baltimore was adjusted in 1768. It was called Nottingham Township by the authorities of Pennsylvania, and was divided into 37 parts; hence the name " Nottingham lots."

 

In compliance with the provisions of this act of Maryland, which was passed in 1788, the then proprietors of Nottingham, in order to show the validity of their title, procured copies of the minute of their application to the commissioners of property of Pennsylvania, and also their warrant for the survey of Nottingham, which they caused to be recorded among the land records of Cecil County.

 

The minutes of the commissioners, like all the writings of the Friends, is laconic and concise. It is as follows:

 

"At a session of the Commissioners at Philadelphia, 14th of the 11th mo., 1701 (14 January 1702). Present — Edward Shippen, Griffith Owen, Thomas Story, James Logan, Sec. Cornelius Empson, for himself and several others, to the number of 20 families, chiefly of the county of Chester, propose to make a Settlmt. on a tract of land about halfway between Delaware and Susquehannough, or near the latter, being about 20 miles distant from New Castle, on Otleraroe River, in case they may have a grant of 20,000 acres in said place, at a bushel of wheat per 100 (acres), or 5 pounds purchase, to be after at a shilling sterling per annum, which being duly considered and the advantages that might arise thereby, by rendering the adjacent lands more valuable and encouraging ye settlement of Susquehannough river, 'tis proposed that they shall have 15 or 20,000 acres at £8 pounds per 100 acres, or at 2 bushels of wheat rent per annum, the first year for their encouragement to be free of rent, or one year credit to pay the purchase money. He agrees to the price of purchase or to a bushel and a half per annum. But it is referred to thee in further consideration."

 

The application of Empson, as set forth in the preceding minute of the commissioners who were appointed by Penn and authorized to have charge of his land and to look after his interests in the province, met with the favorable consideration of the proprietary, or the commissioners concluded to act on their own responsibility, for on "ye 7th of ye 1st mo., 1701," (7 March 1702; under pre-1752 English calendar, year change took place on March 25) they issued the warrant of survey to Henry Hollingsworth, at that time a citizen of Pennsylvania.

 

This warrant contains the names of the original settlers for which the survey was made. They are as follows : Henry Reynolds, Cornelius Empson, John Empson, John Richardson, James Brown, William Brown, Henry Bates, Edward Beson, Jas. Cooper, (of Darby), Randal Janney, Andrew Job, John Churchman, Ebenezer Empson, John Guest, of Philadelphia. These were to have 1,000 acres each. Joel (H)ayley, Robert Dutton, Samuel Littler, and Messer Brown were to have 500 acres each.

 

The whole township was to be divided into 18 several divisions of 1,000 acres each, three of which the proprietor reserved for his own proper use. The choice of the several divisions was to be disposed of by lot. The warrant directed the surveyor to begin at the northern barrens, between the main branch of North East and Otteraroe Creek, and further specified that the southern boundary was to be an east and west line parallel with the southern line of the province, and that the £8 were to be paid within one year after the date thereof.

 

It also provided for the payment of an annual quit rent of one shilling sterling for every 100 acres, or, in case of failure to pay the first sum, they were to pay two bushels of good winter wheat for every 100 acres, to be delivered at some landing place on the Delaware River. ...

 

The Friends that settled upon Nottingham were frugal and industrious, and soon the forest disappeared beneath their sturdy strokes, and grass and the waving grain succeeded it. The brothers Brown, like their father, were ministers of the gospel, and in 1704 a meeting was organized at the house of James, which was the origin of the Quaker congregation that now worships in the Brick Meetinghouse.

 

The first meeting-house was erected in 1700 or 1710. It was built of hewn chestnut and yellow poplar logs, which were very durable; some of them are to be found at the present time in an old building on the place where Susannah Reisler now lives. Authorities differ about the time of the erection of the brick house; some of them place it in 1724, others in 1735. There is also a difference of opinion as to whether the brick used in its construction were imported from England or made in the neighborhood. Elisha Howls, who died some 40 years ago at the age of 80, said his father did the carpenter work of the building in 1750, after the first fire when the addition was built.

 

From information obtained from him some of the old residents are of opinion that the bricks were made near the house ; others think they were imported from England. It is a curious but well authenticated fact that the first building was roofed with slate obtained somewhere along the Octoraro Creek, but where, no person now living knows.

 

In 1751 the woodwork of this house was burned, and in the following year a stone addition of equal size with the original structure was erected — thus its capacity was doubled. In 1810 the woodwork was again burned, and in the following year it was replaced. Strange to say, though half of the walls of this old house are stone, it still bears its original name of " the Brick Meeting-house," and though the bricks have stood the test of two fires in addition to their original burning, and though the frosts and snows of 154 winters have spent their fury upon them, they appear to be none the worse and look as though they might last for many centuries longer. ...

 

The Browns, before spoken of, were noted as well for their zeal as ministers as for their enterprise and industry. The mill on North East Creek, known as Hurford's mill, was built by them; and one of the sons of James Brown, who married and lived near Principio iron works, had an interest in them as early as 1718, in which year he died.

 

In 1751 six of the Brown family, four men and two women, were ministers of Nottingham monthly meeting. A substantial stone house built by Messer Brown is now (1881) standing about a mile southwest of the Brick Meetinghouse, and is occupied by the descendants of John Churchman, one of whom intermarried with a descendant of Messer Brown.

THE KENT

 

The Kent carried colonists to West New Jersey with Gregory Marlow as master and loaded in London for New Jersey 19 March to 31 March, 1677. There followed loadings for other ports, but she sailed before May.

 

The Kent sailed first to New York, arriving either the 4th, 12th or 16th August. Then after a short stay, the Kent sailed across the bay to Perth Amboy, after which she headed south to the Delaware, landing first at the mouth of Raccoon Creek where she is said to have disembarked some 230 passengers of a total of 270. She then moved on to Chygoes Island, now Burlington.

 

Other histories state that she landed at Raccoon Creek after an early June halt at New Castle, then to Burlington on 23 June. However, the arrival time in New York is known from the minutes of the New York government, with which the Commissioners (aboard the Kent) met during their stay there.

 

The Yorkshire purchasers settled the 1st tenth, from Assinpink to Rancocas. The London purchasers settled the 2nd tenth, from Rancocas to Timber Creek.

Notes for Jeremiah Brown:

The following is quoted from page 50 of "Nicholson Family History" (1970) by Caroline Nicholson Jacob (1891-1991) of Round Top, Chester County, Pennsylvania:

 

 

Jeremiah Brown, father of Patience, married a Mary Royal or Royle who had a romantic rather than a distinguished background. According to the story she told her children she had been kidnapped in Scotland when she was only a girl in her early teens and had been taken as an indentured servant to America where she served out her term in the household of Caleb Pusey in Chichester in a house that has been recently restored as a museum piece. She married as soon as her term of service was over; her husband [William Coles] died and she married Jeremiah Brown and thus became the mother of Patience and the great-grandmother of Rhoda Holaday who walked by the covered wagon over the mountains to Indiana.

 

The house of Jeremiah Brown is still standing near Rising Sun, Maryland, on Route 273.

 

 

Below is part of an email containing additional details:

 

The address of the house is the Plumpton Park Zoo, 1416 Telegraph Road, Rising Sun, MD. It is off route 273. Plumpton Park is a portion of the land grants from William Penn to James, William and Mercer Brown . The 18th century structures and site within the park were placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1987

 

PROOF:

------"National Register Information System",  registered Nov 2, 1987, Marker  # 653 -  Brown, Jeremiah, House and Mill Site (see picture & info at website: http://www.marylandhistoricaltrust.net/nr/NRDetail.asp?HDID=1003&FROM=NRMapCE.html) ,  1416 Telegraph Rd.,  Rising Sun, Cecil Co., MD, at the Plumpton Park Zoo grounds;   Inventory No.: CE-202; CE-203;     Description: The Jeremiah Brown House consists of two distinct halves: a two-story, three-bay, gable-roofed stone structure built in 1757 by Jeremiah Brown, Sr.; and a two-story, two-bay gable-roofed frame house built in 1904 by John Clayton on the site of the original 1702 log wing. Several stones on the north facade are carved with the initials of local citizens and probable assistants of Jeremiah Brown, Sr. in the construction of his house, including that of the probable stonemason, Morris Reese. The north facade of the stone portion features 12/12 sash windows in the eastern bays and a door with a transom in the west bay. Beneath the windows are cellar windows with segmental brick arches. The second floor windows are replacement 1/1 sash. The first and second stories were originally separated by a pent roof, whose supporting joist sockets are still visible. The east gable end holds two small square attic windows flanking the interior brick chimney. The south facade holds replacement 1/1 sash windows on the second floor, and a single window in the east bay. The two western bays are covered by an enclosed frame porch. Some of the interior woodwork, particularly the staircase, dates from 1757. The rest of the woodwork dates from the Federal period when the fireplaces on the east wall were rebuilt. A two-story, two-bay frame west wing was built in 1904 with materials salvaged from the original 1702 log house built on this site. To the west of the house is a small 19th century bank barn. Approximately 1000 feet southeast of the house are the stone foundations of the 1734 Brown Water Corn and Gristmill. A reconstruction of the original mill has been built on top of these foundations. Portions of the original mill race remain. Due north of the mill are the foundations of an 18th century saw mill.      Significance: The Jeremiah Brown House is architecturally significant as a firmly dated, unrestored survivor of the distinctive Pennsylvania Quaker building tradition brought to Maryland in the Colonial period. The remains of pent roofs and a second-story door are two distinctive features of this tradition. The most unusual feature, however, is the set of local initials carved into the stonework of the 1757 half of the house; very few buildings in Cecil County offer as much insight into the building process. The house also contains a wealth of original woodwork as well as woodwork from the Federal period. Historically, the house is important as having been built by one of the original settlers of the Nottingham Lots laid out in 1701 by William Penn. Jeremiah Brown was also responsible for the important 18th century mills, foundations of which are still on the property. Together with the Jeremiah Brown House, they comprise a significant commercial complex from the Colonial era.

Thomas and Abigail Brown Thornbrough Family

-------------------------------------------------------

Thomas Thornbrough, Jr., was son of Thomas and Sarah Thornbrough of Ireland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Virginia. Although Thomas, Jr., is not mentioned in the will of Thomas, Sr., Quaker records in North Carolina place him as the son of Thomas, Sr. Thomas, Jr. married (1) Abigail Brown and (2) Martha Stanley.

 

In "Jefferson County, Tennessee Families and History 1792-1996," Richard Edwards includes the following in the history of his ancestor, Joseph Thornbrough, son of Thomas and Abigail Brown Thornbrough: "Abigail Brown was the daughter of James Brown, born 1681, Pennsylvania. In 1700, James and his brother, William, left New Castle, DE, and went thirty miles west, deep into the wilderness and established the Nottingham MM in now Cecil Co., Md. James Brown was the son of James Brown, 1656-1715, the immigrant. James Brown, the immigrant, married Honour Clayton, born 1662, Sussex, England, daughter of William Clayton. James Brown, the immigrant, was son of Richard Brown, circa 1610-1662, of Northamptonshire, England. Richard converted from Puritan to Quaker. Richard's father was John Brown, born circa 1580."

 

Virginia and North Carolina Records

From Hopewell Friends History: Thomas Thornbrug (sic), son of Thomas, of Middle Creek on Opeckan in Frederick Co, Va., married Abigail Brown, daughter of James of same place, 18th of 1st mo, 1740/41 O.S., which is 29th of 3rd mo N.S. They had declared marriage intention at several monthly meetings held at Opeckan. Witnesses: Thomas Thornbrug, James Brown, James Brittain, John Gayham, Walter Thornbrug, Richard Beeson, Hannah Thornbrugh, Mary Wall, Ann Beeson, Charity Beeson, Sarah Wood, and Elizabeth Beeson.

 

Thomas Thornburg was received at Cane Creek Monthly Meeting on 11/4/1752 on a certificate dated 7/6/1752 from Hopewell Monthly Meeting in Virginia. His cousin, William Thornburg, son of Edward Thornbrough, was received at the same time from Hopewell. When New Garden Monthly Meeting was set off from Cane Creek in 1754 Thomas automatically became a member of that meeting. The marriages of Thomas's children are recorded there.

 

Thomas Thornbrugh married Martha Stanley, daughter of James Stanley on 1/1/1783 at New Garden Monthly Meeting. There were no children from this marriage.

 

       

Children of Abigail Brown and Thomas Thornbrough are:

        132             i.    Joseph6 Thornbrough22, born 26 Nov 1741 in Frederick Co., VA; died 06 Aug 1823 in Wayne Co., IN.  He married (1) Wellmet Beeson 23 Jun 1763 in New Garden Friends Meeting, Guilford Co., NC; born 30 Oct 1742 in Virginia; died 06 Feb 1775 in Guilford Co., NC.  He married (2) Rebecca Mills 05 Feb 1778 in New Garden Friends Meeting, Guilford Co., NC; born 15 Dec 1744 in Guilford Co., NC; died 20 Sep 1821 in Wayne Co., IN.

 

Notes for Joseph Thornbrough:

http://freepages.family.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mygermanfamilies/ThornJosephWell.html

 

 

Joseph Thornbrough was oldest son of Thomas and Abigail Brown Thornbrough of Ireland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Virginia and North Carolina. Joseph married twice (1) Wellmet Beeson and (2) Rebecca Mills, widow of William Morgan.

 

Wellmet Beeson was daughter of William & Mary Mills Beeson. Rebecca Mills was daughter of Thomas & Elizabeth Harrold Mills. Thomas Mills and Mary Mills Beeson were brother and sister, so Rebecca Mills and Wellmet Beeson were first cousins. For more on William and Mary Mills Beeson and Thomas and Elizabeth Harrold Mills see Cheska Wheatley's Mills Family. 

 

Family Quaker Records

Joseph Thornbrough was received by request at New Garden Monthly Meeting in North Carolina on 9/25/1756. He was a member of that meeting until Deep River Monthly Meeting was formed in 1778 when he became a charter member there.

 

The family was then received on certificate at Westfield Monthly Meeting in Surry County, NC, on 6/4/1792. Westfield at that time was accepting certificates for those families moving to the Holston River area in future Jefferson County, Tennessee. Joseph and Rebecca actually were members of Lost Creek Monthly Meeting when it was set up in Jefferson County, Tennessee.

 

On 11/25/1809 Joseph and Rebecca were granted a certificate from Lost Creek Monthly Meeting to West Branch Monthly Meeting in Ohio. The certificate was received on 3/17/1810 at West Branch. Then on 8/25/1810 Joseph and Rebecca were granted a certificate to New Garden Monthly Meeting in Wayne County, Indiana. He and Rebecca are found in the 1820 census in Wayne County, Indiana, and in 1823 transferred to the Springfield Monthly Meeting. Their deaths are recorded at Springfield Monthly Meeting in Wayne County.

More on the children of Joseph Thornbrough

Joseph and Morgan Thornbrough, sons of Joseph and Rebecca

Sons Joseph and Morgan Thornbrough followed their parents to Ohio. Son Joseph was dismissed for attending a marriage out of unity and for dancing on 6/18/1803 at Lost Creek Monthly Meeting in Tennessee. The marriage was that of his brother Morgan Thornbrough and Hannah Harle who were married in Jefferson County, Tennessee, in a civil ceremony on 12/20/1802. Morgan was condemned at Lost Creek on 10/22/1803 for his marriage contrary to discipline. (There is a little discrepancy here - marriage out of unity would have meant marrying outside the Quaker faith and marriage contrary to discipline would have meant marrying a Quaker in a civil ceremony. Marriage contrary to discipline is probably correct.) Both Joseph and Morgan made their peace with the Quakers as on 1/26/1811 Lost Creek Monthly Meeting gave them a certificate to transfer to West Branch Monthly Meeting in Ohio. There is a cryptic note in the Lost Creek Meeting minutes that on 7/25/1807 Joseph Thornbrough was left at liberty to remove to Ohio. It is not clear whether this was Joseph, Sr., or Joseph, Jr., but at any rate they both obtained certificates later.

Richard Thornbrough, son of Joseph and Wellmet Thornbrough

Son Richard Thornbrough was dismissed on 3/4/1793 for his marriage out of unity to Elizabeth Mills (daughter of Richard and Hannah Osborn Mills and granddaughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Harrold Mills). This couple also went to Wayne County, Indiana, as they are found next to Joseph and Rachel in the 1820 census.

William Thornbrough, son of Joseph and Wellmet Thornbrough

William Thornbrough married Rachel Beals, daughter of Thomas and Sarah Andram Beals, in 1789 in Guilford County, North Carolina. William Thornbrough was recorder of Lost Creek Monthly Meeting, Jefferson County, Tennessee, appointed 7/22/1797. He wrote his will on July 1, 1796, naming son Abel Thornbrough. Wife Rachel was evidently already deceased. William died 5/18/1801 in Jefferson County, Tennessee. Son Abel Thornbrough was received on November 8, 1804, at Miami Monthly Meeting in Ohio along with an uncle and his grandmother Beals, who evidently had care of him. He had a wife Rhoda who transferred on certificate 5/11/1841 from Whitewater Monthly Meeting in Indiana to Springfield MM. Children named were Lydia; Mary Ann; Rachel; Susanna; and William J. Abel and Rhoda had another son John Thomas Thornbrough recorded as born 4/10/1843 at Springfield MM.

Wellmet Thornbrough, daughter of Joseph and Rebecca Thornbrough

Daughter Wellmet Thornbrough married Robert Patton on 7/17/1804 in Jefferson County, Tennessee. We have recently heard from Olivia, a descendant of Robert and Wellmet Thornbrough Patton. She gives children as: 1)Unknown born about 1806; 2) Unknown born about 1808; 3)Joseph born about 1810, Jefferson Co, Tn; 4) Thomas Cunningham Patton, born April 17, 1811, Jefferson Co (Olivia's line); 5) Unknown born about 1812; 6)Elizabeth, born about 1816; 7)William Patton, born April 14, 1818, Jefferson Co. We attempted to locate the Robert Patton family in the 1850 census in Jefferson County, Tennessee, to fill in the names of the unknown children but they were gone. The name "Robert Patton" is too common to try to locate them in other places without more information.

 

Olivia tells us that Joseph Patton married Ursula Wilhite on July 25, 1833 in Jefferson County and died October 20, 1888 in Ray County, Missouri. Thomas Cunningham Patton married (1) July 30, 1831 in Jefferson County to Susannah Carney, and married (2) Feb 14, 1861 in Washington County, Arkansas to Lucinda Reed (Olivia's line). Thomas died January 12, 1892 in Parker County, Texas. Elizabeth Patton married Jesse Jones on Aug 28, 1838. William Patton married (1) Rebecca Parker on Aug 28, 1838 in Jefferson County and (2) Mary A. Phillips on Aug 7, 1862 in Andrew County, Missouri. William died July 31, 1897 in Andrew County, Missouri.

More on the Children of Thomas and Martha Ballinger Thornbrough

Henry Thornbrough

Son Henry Thornbrough was apprenticed in 1793 by certificate from New Garden to Centre Monthly Meeting. Unfortunately we do not know the occupation he apprenticed for but we do know that later, in Indiana, he was a wagonmaker and manufacturer of farm implements.

 

 

Henry Thornbrough married (1) Elizabeth Stanley, daughter of Shadrack and Agnes Stanley, 6/12/1799 at New Garden Monthly Meeting in Guilford County. She died 8/8/1800 and is buried at New Garden (probably died in childbirth).

 

Henry Thornbrough married (2) Rebekah Hussey, daughter of John and Mary Jessop Hussey, 6/2/1802 at New Garden Monthly Meeting in Guilford County. Henry and Rebekah had children John (8/16/1803), and Elizabeth (1/3/1806) documented at New Garden. They requested a certificate to Whitewater Monthly Meeting in Wayne County, Indiana, from New Garden, North Carolina on 11/26/1814. The certificate was not presented until January 1816 and at that time included additional children Eunice, Milton, and Hannah. They were later members of Milford Monthly Meeting in Wayne County.

 

The Wayne County Indiana History, 1872 names additional children Lewis, Henry and Larkin, and tells us that Henry died in Dalton Township, Wayne County. We have not yet checked the Wayne County Quaker records for information.

 

An article appeared in June 1957 in the "North Carolinian" written by Willard Heiss, author of the Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, Vol VII, Indiana Quaker records. It included a letter from Thomas Thornburg (son of James and Mary Moon Thornburg to his cousin Henry. The article tells us a little more of the movements of Henry and family. "Henry Thornburg and his family removed from North Carolina to Warren County, Ohio, in the Fall of 1814. In March 1820 they removed to Wayne County, Indiana, and in the Spring of 1822 they again removed to Posey Township, Fayette County, Indiana, where he remained the balance of his life."

William and Rachel Wilson Thornbrough

Son William Thornbrough was apprenticed in 1793 according to a certificate from New Garden to Back Creek Monthly Meeting. On 9/26/1795 he received a certificate as a minor to Springfield Monthly Meeting where he was dismissed on 11/5/1796. No reason was given for the dismissal which usually meant nonattendance at meeting. Guilford County marriage records show that he married Rachel Wilson January 22, 1799.

 

Lynn Bass, a descendant of William & Rachel's son Wilson tells us that their children were Allen (12/2/1807); Hiram (about 1814); Jesse (10/6/1818); M. J. (about 1819); Wilson (about 1821); Martha (about 1822); and Louiza (about 1825), all born Guilford County, North Carolina.

Ruth Thornbrough Jessop

Daughter Ruth Thornbrough married William Jessop, son of William Jessop of Stokes County, 1/4/1797 at New Garden Monthly Meeting in Guilford County. Unfortunately the name William Jessop is very common in Indiana. Some WFT files indicate that Ruth died in Randolph County, Indiana and there is a William Jessop in Randolph County, Indiana in 1840 of the right age to be this William but again it would be dangerous to speculate. We will have a look at Indiana Quaker records for information when time permits.

Notes for James Thornbrough:

http://freepages.family.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~mygermanfamilies/ThornJamesMary.html

 

 

James Thornbrough was son of Thomas and Abigail Brown Thornbrough of Ireland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and North Carolina. The name is given in Quaker records generally as Thornbrugh.

North Carolina Records

James Thornbrough owned land in Guilford County just northwest of New Garden Meeting House (see map). He purchased the land in 1787.

 

Another interesting notation for this family at New Garden: 6/27/1807 Mallachi Gray, an apprentice, was received at the request of James Thornbrough. Since we do not know James's occupation we do not know what the apprenticeship was for.

More on the Children of James and Mary Moon Thornbrough

Thomas and Mary Perkins Thornbrough

Son Thomas Thornbrough received a certificate from New Garden on 2/27/1790 to go to Center Meeting to marry. He married Mary Perkins, daughter of Joseph and Ann Perkins. Apparently the marriage was not a Quaker ceremony as Thomas and Mary were dismissed for marriage out of unity on 4/26/1794. They apparently made their peace with the Quakers as their children are recorded at New Garden Monthly Meeting: James, born 2/19/1793; Ann born 11/3/1794; Joseph born 12/14/1798; Mary born 11/5/1800; Isaac, n.d., died 12/28/1819.

 

Thomas died 8/1/1833 and Mary died 3/22/1841. Their deaths are recorded at New Garden Meeting in Guilford County, so presumably they are buried in the New Garden burial ground. Son Isaac is listed as having a gravestone at New Garden burial ground, unusual for a Quaker.

 

In the June 1957 North Carolinian, in an article by Willard Heiss, a letter was printed that Thomas Thornbrough had written to his cousin Henry, son of Thomas and Martha Ballinger Thornbrough: Henry had removed to Warren County, Ohio in the Fall of 1814, and then to Wayne County, Indiana in March of 1820.

"2nd of 9th month 1820 My Good Frend

"I received thy Letter dated the 31st of the 7th month 1820 and at thy Request have read it to numbers of thy Good Friends in carrolinia, we all seemed to Rejoyce together to find that thee was moved to break in upon that solem silence that thee make mention of that has so long taken place among us & after a further pause I thought what if I was to speak a few words.

"It was very agreable to me to discover that thee had set they face new purchesward, and that thee had paid them Red Bretheren of the west a visit "I may inform thee I have had cimelar & increasing impressions of the kind myself and am inhopes if I attend properly to my business I may be favoured to persue my prospects in the course of a few months. I perceive thee has had a faint ide of our troubles in loosing our Son (Isaac) who was ceased last Christmas day with a violent complaint in his head whitch broke inside and fell in uppon his lungs and lived but four days to suffer the anquish of his pain, this was a triing seen indeed but I hope we stood resigned to say they will be done and not ours. my wife has Recently been attacted with a violent fever I have not had my Cloths off to go to bed for sixteen days and nights but by the help of a doctor and the aid of that phisition of vallue we think there is some hopes of her recovery.

"the flux and fever is very prevalent in our Land & many fresh Graves at new garden Meeting house; unkle john and aunt Bette (John & Elizabeth Thornbrough Farrington?) lives with Jesse (?) & prudence (Prudence Thornbrough Hunt?) the ould man is mostly confined to his bed and somewhat childish; Jane Macgrady looks ould & is vary weakly

"there is a Great ado here about moveing to the new country five familys started this week and more would go if they could get money but no money here: we had good crops of wheat and a Great prospect for corn we have plent of meat milk butter & chesse but distressing times for money but harvest times for the constables I was told by john hoskins lately that he had three hundred warrents put into his hands in one day and a number of Sails appointed and no biders; he had a sail in half a mile of my house sold one hundred dollars worth of property for nineteen & only Got the promis of money for that

"my mother siting by smoking her pipe of pese says do remember my love to them for I allways did love Henry & Becke; Daved & Vancy and their prety little daughter are also present desire to be remembered too; Mallekiah polle (Polly?) & their Little son have been very sick so that polle has not been to see her mother Since she had been Sick but once Jamy & wife is in tollerable health; my self wife & Joseph is all lthat is left now at home, so that if we could have money & health we have not much els to do but go and see you

"Farewell Mary & Thomas Thornburg."

 

It is difficult to identify some of the people in the letter. And the five families that he mentions starting north are not found in Quaker records at New Garden. Evidently Thomas never recovered sufficiently or did not accumulate enough money to go north since he died at New Garden in 1833. The letter is interesting in describing the hard times the people were having.

Richard and Judith Stanley Thornbrough

Son Richard Thornbrough married Judith Stanley, daughter of Shadrack & Agnes Stanley, 5/16/1798 at New Garden Monthly Meeting. Their children are not recorded at New Garden. However, the children are recorded at Center Monthly Meeting in Ohio: Shadrach, born 10/24/1801; Abigail, born 5/11/1804; Thomas, born 8/10/1806; Martha, born 5/12/1808; Mary, born 10/5/1810; Jonathan, born 1/10/1812.

 

Richard and Judith and family received a certificate on 10/31/1807 at New Garden to transfer to Center Monthly Meeting in Ohio. The last three children were born in Ohio. Some of the children were dismissed for disunity with the Quakers in future years and the marriages of some are recorded at Center Monthly Meeting. Richard's death is reported 11/27/1830 at Center and he is buried there. Judith died 10/5/1837 and is buried at New Hope in Ohio.

Benjamin Thornbrough

Son Benjamin Thornbrough received a certificate at New Garden on 11/2/1799 to Lost Creek Meeting in Jefferson County, Tennessee. Receipt of the certificate is not recorded at Lost Creek, so Benjamin apparently changed his mind. He married out of unity and was dismissed from New Garden Monthly meeting on 2/27/1802. We have no further information on him (researchers beware - there is much Benjamin Thornbrough information in Jefferson County, Tennessee, but that Benjamin and son Benjamin are descendants through another line of Thomas and Sarah Hamman Thornbrough. They arrived at Lost Creek directly from Virginia.

Rachel Thornbrough Mendenhall

Daughter Rachel Thornbrough married James Mendenhall, son of Aaron and Miriam Rich Mendenhall, on 11/16/1796 at New Garden Monthly Meeting. James was born 10/24/1776.

 

James & Rachel Mendenhall had children: Mary born 8/29/1797, died 11/29/1799; Miriam, born 7/20/1799; John & Ann, born 9/6/1801; James, born 2/21/1804, died 3/17/1805; Aaron, born 4/24/1806; Mary born 1/10/1809, died 12/12/1820; Susanna, born 11/30/1810.

 

As an heir of Aaron, James received a portion of five shillings left to Aaron's children in the will of Mordecai Mendenhall in 1803.

 

There is a notation in New Garden Monthly Meeting minutes on 8/5/1813 that Rachel Mendenhall, a widow, of Guilford County, married Barthen Jessop. We do not see another Rachel at that meeting so it was probably Rachel Thornbrough Mendenhall.

Susannah Thornbrough Rayl

Daughter Susannah Thornbrough married Nathan Rayl 1/1/1800 at New Garden Monthly Meeting. Their children are recorded at New Garden: Thomas, born 10-1-1800; James, born 1/7/1803; Caleb, born 10-17-1804; Nathan, born 11/16/1806; Richard, born 12-28-1808; and George, born 2/22/1811.

Abigail Thornbrough Stanley

Daughter Abigail Thornbrough married Edward Stanley 10/10/1804 at New Garden Monthly Meeting. Edward was son of Shadrack and Agnes Stanley and brother of Judith Stanley above.

Ann Thornbrough Jackson

Daughter Ann Thornbrough married Unknown Jackson (out of unity?).

Mary Thornbrough

Daughter Mary Thornbrough is probably the one dismissed for marriage out of unity in 1804 at New Garden.

Martha Thornbrough Beard

Daughter Martha Thornbrough married George Beard on 7/6/1814 at New Garden Meeting. George was one of several Beards living along Deep River who were descended from John Beard of Nantucket and not related to the Beard family found in these pages. George Beard was born 3/24/1789 and died 1/21/1853. His death is recorded at Deep River Monthly Meeting so he is probably buried there.

 

Several of the Nantucket Beards are documented at Deep River Monthly Meeting. When George was married, he was granted a certificate from Deep River to New Garden to marry and his wife Martha was received back at Deep River on 3/4/1816. In 1823 George and Martha transferred their membership to New Garden and then in 1832 back to Deep River. The area where they lived can be seen on the Guilford County map.

 

The children of George and Martha Beard are recorded at Deep River Monthly Meeting: Mary, born 9/17/1817; Elum, born 11/25/1820; Rebecca, born 9/12/1825; and Nathan, born 2/20/1828. Son Nathan was probably named for Martha's brother Nathan who died young.

Notes for Joshua Hadley:

A biography of Joshua Hadley is better given by quoting parts of Curtis Healton's "A Hadley Genealogy: Ancestry of Simon Hadley, the Immigrant, and Some of His Descendants," (1974), Volume I, pages 21-25:

 

Joshua Hadley, son of Simon and Ruth (Keran) Hadley, was born 3rd month 6, 1703, County Kings, Ireland, died 1760, Orange (now Alamance) County, North Carolina.

 

He married (1), 7 mo. 2, 1725 at the New Garden Meeting House, Chester County, Pennsylvania, Mary Rowland, died 1733, daughter of Thomas and Mary (Mason) Rowland. Mary Rowland's mother purchased 700 acres of land in the northeast corner of the Manor of Steyning in 1708. Her father was perhaps a close relative of John and Thomas Rowland, brothers, who came to America in 1682 with William Penn in the ship Welcome.

 

Joshua married (2), in 1735, Patience Brown, born 5 mo. 25, 1712, died May 23, 1783, daughter of Jeremiah and Mary (Royale) Coles Brown of Nottingham, Pennsylvania. Joshua and Patience were married by a "priest." This being contrary to Friends' principles, they were disowned by New Garden Monthly Meeting, Pennsylvania, February 24, 1736. Upon acknowledgement of their "guilt," they were reinstated May 30, 1737.

 

Patience Brown's father was the son of James and Honour (Clayton) Brown who settled in 1701 on a tract of land called Nottingham on Octoraro Creek in the western part of Chester County, Pennsylvania. Her mother, Mary (Royale) Coles Brown, was born in Scotland. When twelve or fourteen years of age her mother, with many others, was forcibly taken, carried on board a ship, and taken to Pennsylvania. There she was sold as a servant to Caleb Pusey and served her time out. When free, she married William Coles and settled at Nottingham. As a widow, she married, 2nd mo. 1711, Jeremiah Brown.

 

Following his marriage to Mary Rowland, Joshua was given a tract of land by his father. At the time of his father's death in 1756, he was in Virginia. He located in that part of Augusta County, Virginia now included in Botetourt County (organized in 1770) at the junction of Craig Creek and James River, just across the river from the present-day village of Eagle Rock and about 30 miles northeast of the city of Roanoke. He purchased other lands in the vicinity as will be seen from the following items taken from Chalkey's "Records of Augusta County, Virginia":

Joshua Hadley's sojourn in Virginia probably did not exceed ten years. In 1756, at the age of 53 and within a few months after his father's death, he joined his sisters Hannah and Ruth, and their families, together with other Pennsylvania Quakers, at Cane Creek, North Carolina. Apparently he never severed his ties with Pennsylvania while in Virginia. In the records of New Garden MM, Pennsylvania, we find, "7-31-1756 it was represented that Patience Hadley, having been removed for some time, writes for a certificate to Friends at Cane Creek, NC which was granted her and children 8-28-1756." And in Cane Creek Minutes we read: "10-2-1756 Patience Hadley with husband and children received on certificate from New Garden MM, Pennsylvania."

 

The tide of emigration to the South was at its peak just then and it continued until the Revolutionary War put a stop to travel. St. John de Crevecouer, in his reference to the Quakers who settled North Carolina said in his "Letters of an American Farmer," 1782: "Sometimes they have emigrated like bees in regular connected swarms."

 

Joshua lived only about four years after going to North Carolina. Apparently that was sufficient time for him to establish an enviable reputation in the community, for so well has his memory survived him that in 1931 the South Alamance Pioneer Association erected a memorial monument to him and his wife Patience at Spring Meeting near Snow Camp, NC. It was not until after the dedication of the marker in 1931 that positive proof became available that Joshua and Patience were buried at Cane Creek Meeting cemetery and not at the Spring Meeting cemetery.

 

The land acquired by Joshua and Patience in North Carolina was located about four and one-half miles southeast of present day Snow Camp in Alamance County, and about one and a quarter miles north of the Alamance-Chatham County line. Descendants of Joshua and Patience still (1970) reside on the property. The South Fork Friends Church, a large and beautiful building constructed in 1967, is located about two and a half miles south of the Hadley property, in Chatham County. Many Hadleys have been buried in the cemetery of this church, and Hadley families presently attend the church. The locality called Hadley in Chatham County is presumed to be the former location of Joshua's mill.

 

The life and activity in North Carolina of the two branches of Joshua Hadley's family differed greatly. Mary Rowland's descendants were vert active in the Revolutionary War and consequently were disowned by  the Society of Friends. The descendants of Patience Brown remained Quakers, taking no part in the war other than a little passive resistance now and then, and an occasional escapade by some of the youngsters, for which they were usually severely reprimanded and temporarily suspended from membership.

 

This ends the quoted information from the Hadley genealogy. Later research on the Hadleys, posted on the Internet, indicates that Joshua Hadley fathered an illegitimate child in 1736 by Margery Lindley, according to a complaint from New Garden Preparative Meeting on 1st month 27, 1736 which Margery alleged but Joshua denied.  Another complaint from the meeting two months later condemns Joshua for being married by a priest and for drinking to excess.

As a result of some of my research being put on the Hadley Society web site, I have been getting a lot of correspondence from family researchers. I am delighted to help whenever I can. Just a few days ago I was asked where I got the info about Joshua Hadley and Margery Lindley having an illegitimate child. I love it when people check on sources instead of just repeating stories. In this case, I didn't know, but had received the info from Thomas Hamm, who I believe to be one of the finest researchers in the US. He is the historian and archivist at Earlham University in Indiana. This is the Quaker college where Chalmers Hadley attended. Anyway, I realized my oversight and wrote to Tom to get the documentation. His reply is below. Just yesterday I was able to look in the Hadley books and help Richard Hadley find his branch of our tree. Last night I talked with William John Hadley, who lives in Portland OR about a mile from me, and found he was from the Hadley Massachusetts line. I sent him the name of a friend who has a research group going for this line of the Hadleys (Barbara Mann). I have another lookup on my computer tonight. Sharing is really the heart of this effort, and I truly appreciate all the good we are accomplishing together.

Thanks for your message and the report. I'll send the documentation for Joshua Hadley and Margery Lindley.

Here's the promised information.

New Garden MM Men's Minutes, Chester Co., PA.

 

1st Mo. 27, 1736: Complaint from New Garden Preparative Meeting: "Margery Lindley says she is with Child by Joshua Hadley which he denyes yet she says true & he has since gone and married an other young woman by a priest therefore this meeting appoints Michael Lightfoot, Joseph Sharpe & Wm. Miller to Endeavor to have Joshua and Margery together & here what they have to say & to prepare a Testimony for ye Clearing of Truth."

 

2nd Mo. 24, 1736: "Joshua Hadley declining to meet those appointed before Margery Lindley A Testimony is signed against each of them & Isaac Jackson Senr to see them read to Newgarden and send Joshua's to Notingham that friends there may have such use of it as they think proper."

 

3rd Mo. 29, 1736. New Garden Preparative Meeting informs that James Harlan "was assistant to Joshua Hadley in his marriage by ye priest and it was intimated several times Drinks strong Liquor to excess."

 

I used abstracts of the New Garden records done by Gilbert Cope at the Genealogical Society of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, rather than the original minute book, but Cope's work is quite reliable.

 

 

Comment by Bryan Godfrey, descendant of Joshua Hadley by his second wife, Patience Brown:

 

Because of his prominence in the Revolutionary history of North Carolina, Thomas Hadley's biography should be included here underneath his father's, because Family Tree Maker will not show children of Joshua Hadley's first marriage to Mary Rowland on my own ancestor reports since I descend from his second marriage to Patience Brown. (I hope that eventually the FTM program will be upgraded so ancestor reports will automatically show an ancestor's other spouses and offspring from those spouses if an ancestor were married more than once. The way it is now, half-siblings of one's ancestor are not shown under that ancestor's parents.)

 

The information below has been quoted from Curtis Healton's Hadley genealogy:

 

4/ DESCENDANTS OF THOMAS HADLEY AND MARY THOMPSON

FIRST GENERATION

4-20. THOMAS HADLEY, s of Joshua and Mary (Rowland) Hadley (p 21), was b in 1728,New Castle Co, Del, d 1 Sept 1781.

He m., 6-13-1750 at London Grove Mtg, Pa, Mary Thompson, b 1730, Chester Co, Pa, d1795, dau of John and Jane (Davis) Thompson.

Thomas probably moved to Va with his father. Shortly after his marriage to Mary Thompson, he purchased land in Augusta (now Botetourt) Co, Va. The following items, taken from Chalkey's "Records of Augusta County, Virginia", show some of his land transactions:

"1750 Aug. 29. Deed Book 2, Page 854.-- Benj. Borden etc to Joshua Hadley 345 acres, part of 2880 acres on Catabo Creek. Patented by Benj. Sr. 19th March 1740. Page 866. Some to Thomas Hadley on Catuba Creek 334 acres, part of above patent." The following year, Thomas sold 184 acres of this tract to his brotherin-law, John Marshall.

"1752 May 20. Deed Book 4, Page 253. -- Borden to Thomas Hadley 399 acres of 2880 patented 9th March 1750. Catuba Creek at James."

"1753 Dec. 12. Deed Book 6, Page 22.-- Joshua Hadley and Patience to Thomas Hadley, 400 acres in fork of James River and Craig Creek. Teste: Edward McDonald. Delivered to Wm. Preston."

"1764 Nov. 12. Deed Book 11, Page 730. -- Thomas Hadley and Mary of Cumberland County, N.C. to George Poage, £ 140, 400 acres in fork of James River and Craig's Creek. Teste: Henry Carter."

"1764 Nov. 13. Deed Book 11, Page 731. -- Thomas Hadley to James Rowland, £ 130, 549 acres on Catawba Creek; corner in the Great Patent line and a small tract belonging to William Preston, Mount Hadley -first surveyed in two tracts and conveyed to Thomas Hadley by Borden. Delivered: Francis Smith, March Court, 1762."

 

The turbulent lives of Thomas Hadley and his descendants differs so greatly from the tranquil existence of their Quaker cousins that it seems next to impossible that they had the same origins and were reared in the same environments. What was the contributing factor? Could it be an inherited temperament from their mother?

 

Thomas did not remain long in Virginia. In 1760, he, with a partner, John Wilcox, were the first merchants of Cross Creek (now Fayetteville), in Cumberland Co, NC. He represented his district at the Constitutional Convention at Halifax, NC, in Nov. 1776, which enacted a Bill of Rights for the new Government. He was elected sheriff of Cumberland Co, NC, in 1778, and re-elected in 1781 but was killed before he could serve his last term. Thomas, his sons Joshua and Simon, and his son-in-law, Patrick Travis, were very active in the American Revolution. All were Captains of Militia. The Revolutionary War in NC was a dirty affair. While few major battles were fought there, there was constant guerilla warfare which did not subside until long after the surrender at Yorktown. As in the border states during the Civil War, communities were pitted against communities, neighbor against neighbor, and brother against brother. In one respect, it appears to have been a war between English and Irish Whigs who, in Cumberland Co, were seriously outnumbered by the Scotch Tories under the leadership of a Col. Hector McNeill.

 

Cross Creek was captured by the Tories in Aug 1781, and the Whig families were compelled to Seek refuge elsewhere. Thomas Hadley was at the battle of Cross Creek and his family was staying at his home on the banks of the Cape Fear River, eleven miles north of the town, and almost due east of the present site of Fort Bragg. The house was still standing in 1916. After the battle, Thomas went alone to visit his family there. The events that followed was described by Reverend Caruthers in his book: "Incidents of the Revolutionary War." I quote:

 

"Early in the Fall of 1781, Thomas Hadley was killed in a rather singular manner, by the Tories to whom he made himself obnoxious, the Scotch say, by his severities. He lived on the Cape Fear River opposite to the mouth of Carver's Creek, in what was then termed a 'high roofed house', by which, I suppose was meant a house with a steep roof and attic windows. About a dozen Tories, being apprised that he was at home, having just returned from a tour of some kind, probably against their party, went there one night with a determination to take his life. The night was intensely dark; but that may have been favorable to their design. When the Tories surrounded his house, Captain Hadley barricaded his doors in the best way he could, ran upstairs, and putting his head out of a window, called for Frank Cooley and Andrew Beard to bring up their men; but this stratagem had been practiced so often by both parties that it was now disregarded by the assailants. Cooley and Beard were not on the premises with men to bring up; or if they had been there the Tories knew they could elude them in the dark. The Tories instead of being at all disconcerted, only felt assured they had nothing to fear and were determined on entering the house, but while they were making preparations, as Hadley kept his head out of the window, giving directions to Cooley and Beard, a little Scotsman by the name of McAlpin took it into his head that he would shoot at the voice. When the gun was fired, the ball struct Hadley about the lower jaw and passing diagonally through his head, lodged in some timbers above. A tuft of hair, carried by the ball, stuck in the edge of the hole made by the bullet, and remained there many years. Hadley had four sons, of whom all escaped under cover of the night except Benjamin, or Ben as he was called. The Tories took him to 'Gray's Pocosin', five or six miles off, stripped him, tied him to a tree on an island in the pocosin, which was afterwards called "Hadley's Island," and there let the swarms of insects of every kind prey upon him." End of quote.

 

The guerillas then proceeded to loot the home. All of the silverware was carried off, except one pair of sugar tongs which were dropped in the confusion. The daughter Mary recovered them and when last known, they were prized possession of her descendant Thomas Hadley Tyson.

 

The attitude of the McNeills and other Scots is well described by Reverend Caruthers who quotes an Archibald McLean as follows:

 

"The Hadleys, with a few others, if they could only hear of a Scotsman having anything of value, from a good negro down to a cooking pot, according to their moral code, constituted a right to it. This state of things continuing for a length of time, same of those (Tories) lying out in the islands of the swamp below Flea Hill, formed a plan of taking them by surprise at night. They were unsuccessful, but the aged father was found, shot down and run through by a sword for fear life was not extinct. The father was regarded as the recipient of stolen property and responsible for the conduct of his sons. The young Hadleys went to the McLean house after learning that they were implicated in the death of their father, some time after the close of the war, with some friends. They came to the McLean house and attempted to shoot two of the men whom they suspected. The first man, as one of the Hadley brothers raised his gun to kill him, seized the muzzle of the gun and the discharge lacerated the hand of one of the Hadley brothers. I afterwards had the pleasure of seeing one of the Hadleys cropped on a conviction of stealing.," End of quote.

 

Perhaps Thomas Hadley's son who was convicted as a thief was just that. There is also a possibility that he was acting under the direction of his brother-in-law, Patrick Travis. Undoubtedly any jury which had been subjected to the Acts of Confiscation would have a very low regard for anyone participating in the confiscation. The provisional government of North Carolina passed an 'Acts of Confiscation' designed to deprive all opponents to the Revolution of their property to compensate for Tory raids. Several Lindleys, descendants of Ruth Hadley and Thomas Lindley, were victims of these acts.

Mr. David McNeill is (1965) a local historian of that area. He states positively that the name of the man who fired the fatal bullet, killing Thomas Hadley, was McPhail, not McAlpin. He also recounts a rather interesting sequel to these events:-- A close friend named Campbell swore vengeance for Hadley's murder and, each Sunday, carried his rifle to church with the announced intention of killing McPhail who apparently concluded that there were healthier places to live. He disappeared from the community and was never heard of again.

 

Thomas was buried on his River Plantation. His wife was later buried beside him. Here they remained for 150 years and more. The plantation had long since passed out of the Hadley families' possession, the markers were broken, the graves sadly neglected when, about 1935, Mrs. Mattie Hadley Woodard had the remains removed to her family plot in Maplewood Cemetery, Wilson, N.C. A granite marker was erected on the site bearing the inscription:

 

THOMAS HADLEY

1728 1781

Member of Convention which framed the Constitution

of North Carolina, 1776

Captain of North Carolina Militia in American Revolution

Fell in defense of his country's independence

His Wife

MARY THOMPSON

1730 1795

 

 

The eldest child of Joshua Hadley by his first marriage to Mary Rowland was Ruth, and information about her and her husband is quoted below from the Hadley genealogy:

 

RUTH HADLEY, dau of Joshua & Mary (p 21), was b ca 1726, New Castle Co, Del, d 3-29-1812, aged 87 yrs, bur Cane Creek Cem, Snow Camp, NC. She m, 8 14-1742 at New Garden Mtg, Pa., John Marshall, b ca 1720, Co Tyronne, Ireland, d 8-3-1787, bur Cane Creek Cem, s of Jacob & Ann (Griffith) Marshall. John Marshall was a mbr of Grange Mtg, Charlemont, Ire, before coming to America.

Ruth and her h were mbrs of Concord MM in Pa. About 1748 or 49 they joined her father, and brother Thomas, in Va. In 1751, John Marshall purchased 184 acres as seen from the following item taken from Chalkey's Records of Augusta County, Virginia.

"1751 May 28. Deed Book 3, Page 239.--Thomas Hadley to John Marshall (his brother-in-law) 184 acres on Catuba Creek of James River, Borden's tract, top of Mount Hadley. Teste: James Alexander, Rob't Grey." During the period 1754-1759, Ruth and her h rem with their ch to the Cane Creek area of NC, apparently settling in what is now Chatham (then Orange) Co.

 

The third and last child of Joshua Hadley by his first marriage to Mary Rowland was Sarah, and information about her and her husband is quoted below from the Hadley genealogy:

 

SARAH HADLEY, dau of Joshua & Mary (p 21), was b 8-16-1730, New Castle Co, Del. She m, 10-18-1753, prob in Va, Joseph Fred (or Fredd), s of Nicholas & Ann (Need) Fred. (Myers "Immigration", p 309, has the following version: Joseph Fred, son of John and Catherine (Starkey) Fred, md. 10 mo. 1753, Sarah Hadley dau of Joseph Hadley, then of Virginia. They later moved to New Garden Twsp, Chester Co, Pa.") Sarah and her ch were rec by Fairfax MM, Va, 6-24-1769, on cert fr New Garden MM, Pa. Apparently she never moved to NC as did her brothers and sisters.

 

PROOF:

-----"Pennsylvania Births, Chester County, 1682-1800"/John Humphrey, pg 20 shows her birth;

-----Will of Richard Ashmore in Lancaster Co. Pa dated in 1747, he only names Margery his wife and a step-son Joshua, then all my children.    He plainly stated that the stepson was to get an equal share of his estate. 

-----Found the orphan court records as I knew Joshua Hadley was b in 1736,, then any Ashmore children would be younger. These records name three children for Margery;   Joshua Hadley, James Ashmore and dau, Edy Ashmore. The record was dated in 1762 as a second husband had incorporated the Ashmore estate into his estate and died without a will.  It took Margery that long to get the money with interest.   Margery had four husbands between 1736 and 1762;   Richard Ashmore, John Nelson, William McGarraugh and James Dixon. The last husband helped Margery get the Ashmore money in 1762, the orphan court records name all husbands by stating Margery

was former widow of the first three and present wife of James Dixon.    Dixon's will was dated in 1767 and he named no wife so I must assume Margery died in York Co. Pa. between 1762 and the date of his will in 1767.  Margery Lindley Ashmore must have been a strong woman to live the life she lived, with responsibility of rearing her three children without a father.    It seems soon after Margery's death her sons took off for Mechlenburg, NC. where they got into trouble for helping to burn ammunication wagons of the British, almost got hung by Gov. Tryon.   Joshua Hadly reared a family in the Rocky Creek area of Carabus Co. NC. he is buried there, have copy of his will.    James Ashmore with family moved into Tn. where he reared his family.

-----Delaware Quaker Records: New Castle County/Herbert Standing, (Early Members of Newark Monthly Meeting of Friend who resdied in the State of Delaware), pg 31 lists shows Patience Brown, (daughter of Jeremiah and Mary Royal Brown), married Joshua Hadley as his second wife, and names their children;

------- "History of Lancaster County" by Franklin Ellis & Sam. Evans published in 1883, on page 861, there is a long article about Judge Jeremiah Brown. It says he married Mary Cole (a widow) of Nottingham. Their children were: Patience, JEREMIAH, JOSHUA and Isaac. It says "Joshua was born Mar 5, 1717. He married Hannah Gatchel in 1736 and 10 of their children grew to manhood. In 1758 he purchased 500 acres in Little Britain now Fulton Twp. (The book was written in 1883, and it states that Jeremiah's descendant Slater F. Brown of the 4th generation, now occupies that land). It states Joshua Brown was a minister for Society of Friends and traveled to Virginia, & North Carolina preaching to friends. He died October 1798 in the 82nd yr of his age. Of his children 4 settled & remained in that area. They were: Mary married Vincent King, Jeremiah, Isaiah and Joshua. Joshua Jr. the youngest son, died in the year 1823 on the mansion farm, leaving no children. And from what I gather, is the one many have used for DAR and other organizations to join as the Joshua Brown in Huntingdon Co that died in 1832.)

--------Lancaster cnty, PA Wills, BROWN, JOSHUA, Wife. Zillah Brown. Children: Elisha, Patience, Jeremiah, Isaak, Mary, Samuel and Lydy.

Ex. Zillah Brown. Little Britton Twp. - The will of Joshua Brown Sr. of Little brittain in Lancaster Co, Pa. who was married to 1)Hannah Gatchell and married 2) Zillah Walker is dated Jun 10, 1799. It lists his wife as 'Zillah'. He lists his children: Joshua, Elisha, Jeremiah, Isaiah, Samuel, and daughters Patience Morrison, Lydy, Tillah, & Mary King who married Vincent King. He leaves his mansion & Plantation to son Joshua Brown Jr. (Joshua Brown Jr. mentions this) This list of names also coincides with the Rev. War Militia Lists for Lancaster County also.

------*2nd Wife of Joshua Brown: Zillah (Maule) Walker m: Aft. 1760 in Little Brittain, Lancaster Co (this information came from Sheppard Book titled "Sheppard-Marshall and Allied Families"/Lillian A. Sheppard, PUBLICATION: 1974. After Thomas Maule died, Zillah (Walker) Maule married (Sept. 10, 1767, at Radnor, Pa.) Joshua Brown of Little Britain Twp., Lancaster Co., Pa, by whom she had two children, Lydia and Israel. (Lydia married Merrick Embree and their descendants are numerous in Pennsylvania and elsewhere.) Joshua Brown, a renowned minister of the Religious Society of Friends, was an abolitionist and a temperance advocate; he made quite an impression on the young Maule boys. It is believed Zillah met Joshua when he was on one of his journeys as a Friends minister and was staying at the home of Daniel Walker. Thomas Maule's will was quite unusual, because in it he left his property, including the farm, to Zillah and his children in equal shares, rather than to the oldest child. After Zillah married Joshua Brown, she and the Maule boys moved to Little Britain Twp., Lancaster Co., Pa. The Radnor farm was rented until all the children attained legal age. Rec. of Radnor MM & Phila. MM.

 

 

2) In the Quaker minutes of Meetings of Friends (Quakers) (I have copies of these minutes) 'New Garden Monthly Meeting, PA Births & Deaths' and Little Brittain Monthly meeting minutes and MM from Cecil, Maryland, shows:

A) Jeremiah Brown married Mary Coale, they had a son

B) Joshua Brown b.March 5, 1717 m/ Hannah Gatchell had several children. Some of their sons were:

C1) Jeremiah Brown b.1750 d.7-7-1831 m/Hannah England. Jeremiah & Hannah had sons: Slater b.1787, Levi b.1776, & Jeremiah Jr. b.1785.

C2) Elisha b.1737 m/Rachel Littler. Elisha & Rachel had a son Joshua Brown b.1762, d.2-24-1831 who married Debra Taylor.

C3) Joshua Brown b.1745, d. 22 Jan 1760, Quaker records show his death; she was probably pregnant and decided to name the new son Joshua...

C4) Joshua Brown b. 2-17-1760, d.8-18-1823 married Sarah Ely (a widow) . They had no children. (see his Will under Joshua Brown Jr.).

Notes for: Joshua Hadley

 

     By his father's will probated in 1760, Joshua inherited the 180 acre Long Bottom and the 50 acre Pond Bottom on James River, Augusta County (now Botetourt), VA. However, he apparently spent all of his adult life in North Carolina. His home was situated in Alamance County near the village of Snow Camp. In July 1764, he sold the 186 acres to John McClure for 46 pounds, and during the same month sold the 50 acres to Malcolm Allen.

 

     Although Joshua remained a Quaker, it seems that he did not remain completely non-partisan during the Revolution. In the Department of Archives, NC and History of Raleigh, NC can be found Accounts of United States with North Carolina, War of Revolution; Page 88 of Report #83 dated July 1783; Book C, Page 103: "For sundreies furnished and cash paid the Militia of North Caroline, Virginia and South Caroline: to Joshua Hadley 5-12-4." (Apparently 5 pounds, 12 shillings, 4 pence). He is recognized as a Patriot of the American Revolution and this entry qualifies descendants for membership in D.A.R.

 

     Joshua was a Quaker, and he and his family were members of the Cane Creek MM until Spring MM was established in 1793 at which time they became members of that meeting. The Cane Creek meeting was located near Snow Camp, and the Spring Meeting was erected about 6 miles to the east on land donated by Joshua's in-laws, Thomas and Ruth Lindley.

 

Joshua's will, probated 1815 in Chatham County reads:

 

     To all Christian people whence these presents may come - Greetings. Whereas, I, Joshua Hadley, of the county of Chatham, and the state of North Carolina calling to mind the uncertainty of life and the certainty of death, do this 8th day of the 2nd month, 1813 publish this my last will in manner and form as viz -

 

     In the first place, it is my will, and I order, that my body be decently buried, and secondly, that all my just debts be paid, and it is my will and I bequeath unto my beloved wife, Jane Hadley, one horse or mare, to be her choice, and saddle and bridle, and bed and furniture, one cow and two sheep - all to be her choice.

     Also I give and bequeath to my beloved wife Jane, one certain tract of land being on Deep River, Randolph County, containing 50 acres, with all the implements of the mill, all of which I give unto her and her heirs and assigns forever. All my right, title and claim and demand what-so-ever, I give and bequeath unto my beloved wife, Jane Hadley, $300.00 in cash.

 

     Also it is my will and fortune that my beloved wife shall have the whole property of my home place, during her natural life or while she remains my widow, and it is my will that when either should happen that then the whole place should descend to my son, Joseph, by his paying the sum of $400.00, on which condition I give the bequest unto him and his heirs and assigns forever. And it is my will and I order that my children that I mention here-in-after shall have the sum of $1.00 each, that is to say, Jeremiah Piggot and Sarah, Thomas Hadley, Simon Hadley, William Hadley, John Hadley, Nathaniel Edwards and Mary, Jonathan Hadley, Jacob Hadley, Joseph Hadley, Jeremiah Hadley, and it is my will and I order that Hugh Woody shall have one dollar, and it is my will and I order that Hugh Woody's children shall have the sum of thirty dollars each, that is to say, James, Robert, Thomas and Elizabeth.

 

     And it is my will and I order that my two daughters, Catherine Dickson and Patience Piggot, and their husbands, shall have two hundred dollars -each family, that is to say - two hundred dollars to Jesse Dickson and Catherine, and two hundred dollars to Benjamin Piggot and Patience.

 

     And lastly, I constitute and appoint my beloved sons, Thomas and Simon, to be my executors to this my last will and testament, and for their service therein I allow them fifty dollars each. And the rest of my children whose names are before mentioned, that is to say, Thomas, Simon, William, John Nathaniel Edwards and Mary, Jeremiah, Jonathan, Jacob, Joshua and Joseph, shall have an equally division of the remaining part of all my estate after all debts and legacies are paid that are herein mentioned.

"Joshua inherited 186 acres, called the Long Bottom, and 50 acres, called the Pound Bottom, by will of his father, probated in 1760.  Both tracts were located on the south side of the James River in Augusta (now in Botetourt) Co. VA.  In July 1764 he sold the 186 acres to John McClure for 46 pounds, and during the same month sold the 50 acres to Malcome Allen for 15 pounds.

 

  Joshua's home was located in Chatham Co. NC, near the village of Snow Camp. In 1920, the place was owned by Alvis M. Hadley (7-1449), a direct descendant of Joseph Hadley, younger brother of Joshua.  At that time only the foundation walls of the home remained.

 

  Joshua was a Quaker, and he and his family were members of the Cane Creek MM until Spring MM was est in 1793 at which time they became members of the latter mtg. The Cane Creek MH was located nr Snow Camp, and the Spring MH was erected about six mi to the east on land donated by Thomas and Ruth Lindley, parents of Joshua's wife, Ruth.

 

  While Joshua remained a Quaker, he has been recognized as one of the Patriots of the American Revolution, having rendered material aid to the American forces during the war. In the Department of Archives, NC, and "History of Raleigh, NC", may be found: Accounts of United States with North Carolina, War of Revolution.  On p 88 of Report #83, dated July 1783, and Book C, p 103, is the following: "For sundries furnished and cash paid the Militia of North Carolina, Virginia and South Carolina *** #3376 to Joshua Hadley #3373 5-12-4."  This entry qualifies descendants for membership in the D.A.R. or S.A.R.  Further, Joshua is listed on p 292 of the DAR Patriot Index, published by the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution in 1966.

 

  Nine of Joshua's seventeen children, and/or their families, migrated fr NC to states in the midwest. Thomas, Simon, and the wife and children of Jonathan moved to Morgan Co. IN; Jeremiah and Joshua went to Hendricks Co. IN; William and John moved to Clinton Co. OH; Mary went to Warren Co. OH, and Joseph moved with his family to Keokuk Co. IA.

 

Joshua's Will, probated in 1815 in Chatham Co. NC, read:

  "To all Christian people whence these presents may come - Greetings. Whereras, I, Joshua Hadley, of the county of Chatham, and the state of North Carolina calling to mind the uncertainty of life, and the certainty of death, do this 8th day of the 2nd month, 1813, publish this my last will in manner and for as viz-

Notes for Eli Newlin:

The following information about Eli and Sarah Hadley Newlin is quoted from "The Newlin Family: Ancestors and Descendants of John and Mary Pyle Newlin" (1965) by Dr. Algie I. Newlin and Harvey Newlin, pages 417-418:

 

Eli Newlin, the fourth among the children of John and Mary Pyle Newlin, was probably eleven years of age when members of the family made their trek to North Carolina. It was a great adventure for a boy approaching teen-age, and he must have faced every mile of the journey wide-eyed and full of anticipation as the family procession rolled along new and winding road that stretched through the hundreds of miles of ever changing scenes and circumstances.

 

Biographical data for Eli Newlin are scarce and from widely scattered sources. Even the date of his death is subject to speculation. One source, of rather long standing, had placed his death at December 28, 1789, but a recently discovered deed reveals that he purchased land months after that date. In this transaction Eli bought 148 acres of land bordering on the south bank of Haw River, for "...one hundred and fifteen pounds..." This document was signed "...the first day of September in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and ninety..."

 

On December 26, 1860, Eli Newlin, the grandson of Eli and Sarah Hadley Newlin, and the son of John and Esther Stubbs Newlin, made the following entry in his diary: "South Fork (a Friends Meeting near the northern border of Chatham County. Visited the old farm where my father was born and partly raised and where my grandfather died, more than seventy years ago."

 

The 1790 deed made four months more than seventy years before the note was made in the diary of his grandson. One wonders if the correct date is December 28, 1790 and in some way the year had been changed to 1789.

 

On "...the twenty-fifth day of August in the year of our Lord one thousand seven hundred and Eighty four..." Eli Newlin bought 200 acres of land on Terrells Creek near the northern border of Chatham county. From these deeds and the sale of his land after his death it is easy to conclude that he owned close to 700 acres of land on Orange and Chatham Counties. For a few years his home was on Terrells Creek about two and one-half miles southwest of South Fork Friends Meeting House. Sarah Hadley Newlin's parents lived a short distance northeast of South Fork. In two instances documentary evidence indicates that he had moved back to Orange County a short time before his death. The census of 1790 gives his residence as Orange County. The Deed to the one hundred and forty acre tract on Haw River states that he was a resident of Orange County.

 

In one of the newly discovered deeds Eli is styled as a "blacksmith." He was a member of Spring (Preparative) Meeting of Friends, where his wedding was consummated in 1779. There is no known evidence that his membership in that meeting was ever terminated. It may be assumed that he was buried in the graveyard of his own Meeting where many of his relatives are buried. There were no burials at South Fork before 1800.

 

In John and Mary Pyle Newlin's family the six brothers and sisters married in strict conformity to the good order of the Society of Friends and, perhaps by coincidence, followed just as strictly in sequence, the chronological order of their birth.

 

Sarah Hadley, the daughter of Joshua and Ruth Lindley Hadley, was barely seventeen years old when she married Eli Newlin. She was the youngest, in six weddings, to repeat the marriage vows "in the face" of the solemn meetings of Friends. Soon after her twenty-fourth birthday, her fifth child was born. Eli died when she was probably twenty-eight, leaving her with the full responsibility for rearing the five children.

 

Eli reached the age of twenty-one just as the War for Independence began. His marriage came about the mid-point of that long struggle and three of his children were born before it came to an end. The War was very bitter in the Cane Creek valley, around Cane Creek and Spring Friends meetings. Family and community ties were broken. Murder, battles, marching British, Tory, and Whig forces subjected the people to an intense state of emotional tension not easily appreciated by their present descendants. Torn between loyalty to the Government under which they had settled the community, and the movement for independence, approximately one third of the people of the colonies were found in support of each of the conflicting sides, while the other third tried to maintain a neutral position. It is quite likely that the people of the Cane Creek valley were divided in this manner. The Society of Friends in North Carolina enjoined its members to refrain from aligning themselves, in any way, with either side in the conflict. Members were disowned for violating the pacifist position and for making any affirmation of allegiance to either of the contending government

 

An unverified report in the history of a Reformed Church, in an adjacent community, links Eli Newlin with one venture in support of the Whig cause: "Barney Ingle, Tobias Clapp and Eli Newlin sent to carry powder to Patriots in Hillsboro (Feb. 1781) and did so, escaping the Tories." ("A History of the Reformed Church in North Carolina; The Old Brick Church," page 117).

 

Two references to an "E. Newland" in the Colonial and State Records of North Carolina may be assumed to point to Eli Newlin since it does not seem likely that there  was any other person with a similar name in Piedmont North Carolina at that time. In the first of these, "E. Newland" was allowed 12 shillings on claims by the Claims Commission 1776-1779. In the second, undated, "E. Newland claims amounted to 4 pounds, 14 shillings and 6d." The first of these was paid before 1781 and the second could have been for action during the War for Independence or at any time before his death, nearly a decade after the War.

 

Spring Meeting, which dealt harshly with infractions of the Quaker faith, and boldly recorded them in its Minutes, left no indication that Eli Newlin was ever accused of "warlike" action or any other violation of the Quaker tenets.

 

The children of Eli and Sarah Hadley Newlin were as prolific as any similar number of the descendants of John and Mary Pyle Newlin. Each of the first three had twelve children, the fourth had thirteen, and the fifth had six in the first twelve years after marriage. (No information about Mary Newlin and Joel Dixon after their certificates were received by White Lick Meeting, 14-I-1824).

 

Nine years after the death of Eli, Sarah Hadley Newlin married a twenty-six-year-old neighbor, Jeremiah Piggott, son of Jeremiah and Rachel Maynard Piggott. They had four children: Jeremiah, Jonathan, David, and Sarah Piggott. She spent the remainder of her life in Chatham County, in the area of Rocky River Friends Meeting. She survived her second husband by two years and died at the age of sixty-four.

Notes for Thomas Hadley:

Thomas Hadley was a son of Joshua Hadley, Jr. and Ruth Lindley Hadley. His parents were first cousins, as his mother was a daughter of Thomas and Ruth Hadley Lindley, and Ruth was a sister of Joshua Hadley, Sr. Thomas and his sister Sarah married siblings, as Sarah married Eli Newlin, Mary's brother. Thomas Hadley and his sister Sarah were first cousins of Catherine Hadley, wife of Nathaniel Newlin, youngest brother of Eli and Mary. Deborah Lindley Newlin, wife of James Newlin, the eldest brother of Eli and Mary, was sister of the mother of Sarah and Thomas Hadley and on their father's side was their first cousin once removed. Thus, four of the six children of John and Mary Pyle Newlin married into the Simon Hadley family, and the other two married children of Henry and Mary Fayle Hollada

Notes for Mary Newlin:

The following information is quoted from "The Newlin Family: Ancestors and Descendants of John and Mary Pyle Newlin" (1965) by Dr. Algie I. Newlin and Harvey Newlin, page 495:

 

The history of the Mary (Newlin) and Thomas Hadley family is mainly a lost chapter. The Quaker records of North Carolina give nothing to indicate the location of their home or any of their children in that state. These records give no indication that Thomas and Mary Newlin Hadley ever left that state. However, Mary's youngest brother, Nathaniel, paid them a visit in their home near Paoli, Indiana. He "lodged at Thomas Hadley's" on the night of October 25, 1819, as indicated by an entry in his diary, kept on his journey through Indiana and neighboring states.

 

It is known that at least four of their ten children left North Carolina and settled in new communities beyond the Appalachians.

From Marcia Allenby:

  Records include a brief history apparently written by Henry Mills HADLEY:

 

  "...My great grandfather Simon HADLEY of near Danville and Joshua HADLEY of North Branch neighborhood, pioneers of Hendricks Co, Ind. Emmigrated from Chatham Co. NC to Hendricks Co INd. about 1824 settling in and making farms in the heavily timbered lands of central Ind.

 

  This Simon HADLEY was living with a son Wm. HADLEY near Danville, was a large fleshy man and while being moved from Danville to his daughters, Sarah HADLEY wife of Simon  B. HADLEY, he and wife were thrown out of the wagon by the team running away, and he falling on a stump and breaking one thigh, and I saw him being carried past our house in a frame couch by some men (my father being one of them) from the place of the accident to my Grandfathers. [Marcia has inserted here 'Simon B's.].

 

  Of this Simon HADLEYs children 4 married as follows.

 

Sarah married Simon B.HADLEY son of Joshua HADLEY.

 

Elizabeth married John B.HADLEY son of Joshua HADLEY.

 

Mary HADLEY married Joshua B.HADLEY son of Joshua HADLEY.

 

Simon T.HADLEY married Mary HADLEY, daughter of Joshua HADLEY.

 

And Hannah HADLEY, daughter of Joshua HADLEY married John HADLEY known as Gentleman John of another HADLEY family.

 

Joshua HADLEY father of the B. HADLEY family died about the year 1853 (I don't know the exact date) in his 89th year from an injury caused by a buck sheep with large horns striking him on the shin causing gangrene, this occured previous to my father Jermiah S. HADLEY and family starting to Iowa  in the fall of 1853..."
