Notes for Richard L. Cantrell:
Richard Cantrell, sometimes spelled; Cantril, was born about May 1666 and christened on May 13, 1666 in Bakewell, Derbyshire, England. He came to America in about 1687 to join relatives. His place of birth has been established from a petition he submitted to John Blackwell, Esquire, Governor of the Providence of Pennsylvania, in July 1689, stating that his nephew, Joseph Cantrill, had drowned in the Schuykill River, 10 May 1689, and that Joseph had older and younger brothers in Derbyshire, England. Richard posted a 100 pound bond. This document is on file at the Register of Wills, City Hall, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Administrative Book "A", page 66, file number 54, 1689. We know from the records of Derbyshire that there were a number of Cantrill families in the shire and that they were closely associated with the St. Alkmunds Church in Derby. He may have been a descendent of William or Henry Cantrell of Virginia. Fisher says, in his "Making of Pennsylvania," that "quite a number of Virginians migrated from that Colony to the banks of the Delaware before the settlement of Philadelphia by William Penn, in 1678, under the rule of the Duke of York."

We know from tradition and provincial records that Richard was a brickmason and the operator of a brick factory. His arrival in America has been estimated based upon several facts of historical significance. King Charles II of England owed a vast sum of money to a wealthy English Admiral named Penn, and when the Admiral died, his son William Penn inherited the debt. The King was willing to settle the debt by granting Penn an enormous tract of land in the New World. William had become a Quaker during his college years, and was continuously in trouble with the English crown. Now was his chance to form a Quaker colony where they could worship in peace. He needed artisans and families to successfully claim "Penn's Forest." The King did not favor the migration of craftsmen, particularly the type needed by Penn. However, during this period, a wealthy Englishman could obtain a license to migrate and take with him as many servants and their families as he desired. Penn devised a plan, whereby qualified craftsmen, who could afford to pay their passage (but were not otherwise allowed to leave England) would be signed on as servants, on the condition that upon landing in America, they would pay their masters the passage money, and in some cases receive land and be freemen. Numerous artisans, Quakers and others, joined the exodus to America with William Penn. By establishing the colony with qualified and capable personnel, it became the best administered colony in America.

William Penn sailed for America to claim his land in the ship "Welcome" under master Robert Greenway. The ship arrived in Pennsylvania on the 24th day of the eighth month of 1682, or in the present method of dating, 24 June 1682. The ship was ballasted with English brick instead of the usual stone because Penn had decided that he would live in adequate shelter instead of the caves and log huts of the New World. Neither the roster of the "Welcome" nor those of other ships arriving shortly afterwards lists a Richard Cantril, his nephew or any other brickmason. However, a Mary Cantril, servant to Nicholas Schull, arrived in America 10 May 1685. It is unlikely that Penn would have brought the bricks to America without having a qualified brickmason also. It has been a family tradition that Richard built the first brick house in Philadelphia. Historical records of Pennsylvania show that the first brick house belonged to Robert Turner and was located at the corner of First and Mulberry (Arch) Streets. Robert was a wealthy merchant from Dublin who arrived in 1683 and had his house built in 1684-85. In the same years, Daniel Pegge, a future brother-in-law of Richard's, had a brick house built in "Pegge's Run." It is possible that Richard Cantril had the contract for erecting both of these houses, which would easily account for the tradition in the family.

From "Pennsylvania Archives", Vol XIX: "At a meeting of the Commissioners, 6th of July, 1692. Present Captain William Markham, Robert Turner, John Goodson, ... Richard Cantril requesting a warrant for a lot of 30 ft. upon Third Street, near the Burying Ground, was granted."

From the Original Records, Deed Book "D" 53, page 50: "Richard Cantril to Thomas Hall, sold 30 ft. X 190 ft. May 13, 1693, Third and Market Streets."

In about 1693 Richard Cantrill married Dorothy Jones, daughter of Ellis and Jane Jones, who came to America from either Flint, or Denbigh, Wales, in the ship Submission, Sept., 1682.
From the Log of the Submission:
'Ellis Jones, age 45, Barbara Jones, age 13, Dorothy Jones, age 10, Jane Jones, age 40, Mary Jones, age 12, Isaac Jones, age 4 mos.'

The 'Pennsylvania Historical Magazine,' in a list of names of 'Important Colonists, who came in the Submission,' mentions Ellis Jones. He was a resident of Bucks county, 1684, but did not remain there long, and in the Welsh Tract Purchases his name appears as having purchased one hundred acres in Nantonell Parish, Radnor. Barbara Jones married Daniel Pegg, of 'Pegge's Run;' Mary Jones married her cousin Isaac Jones, and Dorothy Jones married Richard Cantrill. Ellis Jones and his family were Quakers and as Richard Cantrill belonged to the Church of England, Richard and Dorothy were married, to use a Quaker term, 'Out of Meeting.'

Dorothy Jones Cantrill seems to have been a young lady of considerable spirit and independence of character. She not only married the man of her choice, irrespective of her religious training, but later evidence is found of her love of gayety and society in an old history of Philadelphia, where she figured at a masquerade ball, much to the horror of her more quiet Quaker friends. She seems to have inherited her love of society from her mother, for the name of Jane Jones appears as a witness to the marriage of a great many Quakers of her day, and the Quaker weddings were probably the principal events affording those of that sect an expression to their social instinct.

In Patent Book "A" Vol II, page 344, there is a lease for 21 years (May 5, 1702) made by Edward Shippen, Griffith Owen and James Logan, as Proprietary and Governor in Chief of Pennsylvania and Territories thereunto belonging ... of a ..."Certain tract of land between Fifth and Sixth Streets containing three acres and sixty perches' (Here follows a full description by metes and bounds) to Richard Cantril, Brickmaker, with all woods and underwood and trees ways, waters, water courses, liberties, profits, commodities, advantages, and opportunities whatsoever." The rental was forty shillings per year, "current silver money of the Province"..."Said Richard Cantril shall build, erect, and set up a substantial brick house one story and a half in height an in breadth eighteen feet and in length thirty-six feet; the first story of one brick and a half and the second story of one brick, and further that said Richard Cantril shall make an orchard upon some part of the hereby granted land, with at least eighty good bearing apple trees planted thereon, and shall also well and sufficiently fence and enclose the said demised land."

In "Pennsylvania Archives" we find: "Cantrill, Old Rights: Richard Cantril, city lot 3 acres, 10 day, 10 month, 1701. Rich, return 3 acres, 3 month 1702."

As the two sons left the New Castle area in the late 1720s or early 1730 and moved to the valley of Virginia by 1738. Richard may have also made the move.

The will of Jane Jones (Richard Cantrell's mother-in-law), relict of Ellis Jones, executed at Phildelphia, Aug. 3, 1730, and recorded at Philadelphia, Dec. 27, 1732, mentions her grandchildren: 'Zebulon Cantril, Joseph Cantril, and Dorothy Cantril,' to each of whom she bequeaths: 'One English shilling, or the value of it in coyn current.'

Later the Archives record a "Caveat against surveying of land adjoining Richard Cantril's estate, issuing to the heirs, or executors of the said Richard Cantril, or any under him, May 31, 1753." No record could be found of the disposition of the estate of Richard Cantril, either by his heirs or executors, but he evidently died prior to May 31, 1753.

In 1703 Dorothy Jones Cantrell age 30, was presented to the Grand Jury in Wilmington, Pennsylvania (now Delaware) Court Proceedings for masking in men's clothes the day after Christmas (December 26, 1702), "walking and dancing in the house of John Simes at 9 or 10 o'clock at night." John Simes, who gave the masquerade party, was presented for keeping a disorderly house, "a nursery of Debotch ye inhabitants and youth of this city... to ye greef of and disturbance of peaceful minds and propagating ye Throne of wickedness amongst us."

The will of Dorothy's mother, Jane Jones, relict of Ellis Jones, executed at Phildelphia, Aug. 3, 1730, and recorded at Philadelphia, Dec. 27, 1732, mentions her grandchildren: 'Zebulon Cantril, Joseph Cantril, and Dorothy Cantril,' to each of whom she bequeaths: 'One English shilling, or the value of it in coyn. current.'
