     Richard Downing Sr. History of Downingtown, PA, "RICHARD DOWNING, m. 21 Mar 1741, at Uwchlan Quaker Meeting, Mary Edge, b. 2 Aug 1721, d. 13 Dec. 1795, daughter of John and Mary of Providence. " Records of Mary Harris, Chester County Genealogy, shows marriage date as the 23rd, not 21st.

In 1787 he was assessed with a grist mill, fulling mill, two saw mills, and malt house in East Caln, and his son Richard with a merchant mill. An old saw mill, which has been in the family for generations has just been torn down."

From "Chester County and Its People", by W. W. Thompson, 1893: "In 1764 Richard Downing was assessed in East Caln with one hundred and ninety acres of land and buildings, worth 35 pounds per annum; one hundred and sixty acres uncultivated; a grist mill and saw mill, worth 70 pounds per annum; 76 acres in West Bradford and 100 acres in Uwchlan, 4 horses, 9 cattle, and 9 sheep. this tax was L6:3:3, being the largest in the township, and his brother John, was next below him. Richard was appointed overseer of Uwchlan Meeting July 6, 1763, in place of Evan Jones."11 EDV-4. He lived with Thomas Downing and Thomazine Beer between 1718 and 1732 at Concord Township, Chester Co. (now Delaware Co.), Pennsylvania, USA; per Cope [1901] p. 96: "He was a taxable in Concord township 1718 to 1732."12,2

Richard Downing Sr. appeared in the census of 1768 at Tax Rates, East Caln Township, Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA; Ancestry shows three different tax lists for 1768. I believe that they may actually be different years, but they are all marked as 1768.

     Henry Drinker Jr. HENRY DRINKER; b 21 Feb 1734; m 13 Jan 1761, Elizabeth, dau of William Sandwich, of Dublin, Ireland, and Philadelphia, Penna., and d 26 June, 1809, leaving a son.1 EDV-4.

Henry Drinker Jr. per Biddle [1893]: "He had been in 1744 apprenticed to George James, and afterwards formed a copartnership with his son, Abel James, in the shipping and importing business, under the firm name of James & Drinker. their operations before the revolution were quite extensive, they being ranked among the principal importes of the time. After the dissolution of the partnership, he appears to have been engaged in the iron business, owning at one time a large portion of the iron-works at Atsion, N. J.

He was one of the Commissioners to page and clean the streets of Philadelphia. In 1777, he was one of the seventeen members of the Society of Friends who were arrested and transported to Virginia under pretence of their being inimical to the American cause, upon their refusing to take the test oath and sign a parole binding them not to depart from their houses, etc., but who were discharged after eight months' confinement without being brought to trial or even confronted by their accusers.

On the 20th of January, 1786, he was elected a member of the American Philosophical Society, and on the 15th of April, 1789, a member of the Common Council of Philadelphia.

In 1790, he, together with Joseph Smith and others, formed a company called the Union Company, and purchased twenty-four thousand acres of land in Cumberland county, New Jersey, -the tract included the present site of Millville. They built a dam and erected mills. In 1795, they sold out to Eli Elmer, Joseph Buck, and Robert Miller, and Joseph Buck laid out the town of Millville. Union Mills and much of this land afterwards became the property of Thomas Stone, and was purchased in 1806 by Keyser and Gorgas. From them it passed into the possession of David C. and Richard D. Wood.

Henry Drinker also made improvements at Stockport, Wayne County, and at other places in Pennsylvania. He invested the greater portion of his means in wild lands in Pennsylvania, and was much interested in opening roads and turnpikes through the same. At his decease in 1809, he left a large, unimproved, and for many years unproductive, landed estate."9

Henry Drinker Jr. began military service at Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania, USA, Revolutionary War: from SAR Application "The name of Henry Drinker appears as a private in the fourth Class of " A General Return of Talbails Company, Militia of the City of Philadelphia."10

Henry Drinker Jr. The silhouette of Henry Drinker was found on the Rootsweb Quaker site on the internet, and came from a book called "Quaker Profiles: Pictorial & Biographica 1750-1850". Early Quakers objected to having their portraits drawn or painted, but likenesses drawn from tracing a shadow casting and trimming out the resulting shape were considered acceptable by the church. March 6, 1988 RD

Note: From "Commemorative Biographical Record, Centre County, PA", page 70: "Henry Drinker was an ironmaster and ship owner of Philadelphia; was arrested in 1777 and sent to Virginia under pretense of hostility to the American cause; he was a member of the common council of Philadelphia, and a large land ownere; he was born in 1734, and died in 1809."

Henry Drinker Jr. from unknown, undated manuscript: [quote] HENRY DRINKER, VIRGINIA EXILE

Throughout much of the history of the Religious Society of Friends, official Quaker groups have exchanged Epistles. The Revolutionary War stimulated Friends in Philadelphia to write letter exhorting their brethren to be faithful to the peaceable profession of the Society.

Considerable correspondence flowed between Friends in America and in England. In 1777 the American Congress recorded that these actions "render it certain and notorious that (these) persons are with much rancour and bitterness are disaffected to the American cause."*

The Congress recommended that the Executive Officers of Pennsylvania arrest 20 persons, seventeen of whom were Friends. Henry Drinker was one of the Friends who was taken from his home to be exiled to Virginia without trial. Unfortunately he was viewed as dangerous because he would not pay war taxes. As a result, things in his home were damaged and some of the family's furniture was taken.

Another exile, John Pemberton, left a Journal account of their departure from Philadelphia. He wrote, " The wagons being before our prison, we were at length forced out. Many hundreds of people were ranged along the alley, some of them much affected. We were paraded through Third Street, until we passed out of the city."

On their way to Winchester, Virginia they encountered continuing hostility. Hand- bills, printed in Philadelphia , were circulated in advance of their wagons by persons who were hostile to Friends because of their refusal to take part in war.

After their arrival in Winchester the group continued to be closely guarded. Then authorities allowed the exiles freedom to travel within a six-mile radius of Winchester. This enabled them to take a lively and active part in the Hopewell Friends Meeting.

In March of 1778 two of the exiles died. Their death, plus visits by Friends and the wives of the prisoners, caused Congress to recommend that the exiles be re-leased and returned home.

Although tried in body and spirit, these Friends did not permit an exile of eight months to shake their faith. Shortly after their return home they took active part in drafting a statement which in no way differed from those for which they were exiled. Friends were again urged to stand clear of taking oaths, or of giving support to the war in any manner.

Elizabeth Sandwith from Ancestry: [quote]DRINKER, Elizabeth Sandwith
Born 1734, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; died 24 November 1807, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Daughter of William and Sarah Jervis Sandwith; married HenryDrinker, 1761.

Born to a successful merchant family, Elizabeth Sandwith Drinker was educated by Anthony Benezet at a girls' school that offered a curriculum similar to that available to boys in other schools. Such an education was so unusual in colonial America that Drinker's obituary in 1807 made note of it..

In October 1758 Drinker began her diary, a record which she kept faithfully until shortly before her death. Never intended for publication, the diary filled 36 manuscript volumes with almost daily entries. Drinker chronicled births, deaths, visits, price lists, travels, illnesses, medical advice, character sketches, family matters, religious activities, military movements, and political developments. In fact, she recorded thousands of Philadelphia events, both trivial and momentous..

A series of entries made in 1777 and 1778, for example, detailed the British occupation of Philadelphia during the American Revolution. True to her Quaker pacifism, Drinker seems to have maintained a careful neutrality: her cryptic judgements spared neither side in the controversy. On May 18, 1778, she commented on the lavish celebration with which the British marked the departure of General Howe from Philadelphia: "This day may be remembered by many from the scenes of folly and vanity, promoted by the officers of the army under pretense of showing respect to Gen. Howe… .How insensible do these people appear, while our land is so greatly desolated, and death and sore destruction has overtaken and impends over so many.".

Yet the Continental Army hardly merited Drinker's higher esteem either. On 2 September 1777, Henry Drinker and other Friends had been arrested and exiled to Virginia for refusing on religious grounds to swear allegiance to the new government and contribute to its support. Due to his prominence, Henry was released after eight months without ever coming to trial, but Drinker's diary entries for April 1778 document her trip to George Washington's headquarters at Valley Forge to secure his release..

After the Revolution, Drinker quite consciously directed her attention away from politics. In 1795, with one of the many verse entries in her diary, she characterized her interests as homebound: "I stay much at home, and my business I mind,/Take note of the weather, and how blows the wind." But although Drinker describes her interests as limited, the variety and detail of her 36-volume diary suggest wider concerns; her record has yet to be fully explored by scholars of early America. Elizabeth Drinker's diary (kept from 1758 to 1807) is in the possession of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania..

     Robert Valentine Jr. was born on 24 June 1752 at Downingtown, Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA; confirmed by Quaker record.5,6,1,2,3,7 He married Ann Thelma Bond, daughter of Samuel Bond and Thomazine Downing, on 27 May 1773 at Uwchlan Friends Meeting, Lionville, Uwchlan Township, Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA.2,3,8 Robert Valentine Jr. died on 9 September 1803 at Bellefonte, Centre Co., Pennsylvania, USA, at age 51; Cope [1901] p. 184 says d. 12 March 1803.5,1,3 He was buried on 12 September 1803 at Bellefonte, Centre Co., Pennsylvania, USA.1
     EDV-3.
Robert Valentine Jr. was a witness to the from Beers [1898:69ff]: "VALENTINE. The Valentines of Bellefonte and their connections have descended from early and historic families of the State. The Valentine family is in direct line of descent from Robert Valentine (1), who died in 1651. His wife was Elizabeth Warren, a native of Lambstown, County Wexford, Ireland, whose death occurred in Ballynocassick in 1695. Their son, George, of Bally Brummel. County Carlow, Ireland, had a son Thomas, who in 1715 married Mary, daughter of Thomas and Mary (Hooper) Parke, of Battytean, County Carlow, and became the progenitor of the family in America. He was born in 1693, and about 1720 came to America, locating in Chester County, Penn. Later he moved into what became Montgomery County of the same State, where his death occurred in 1747. Thomas Parke appears to have been a farmer in Ireland, owning in 1720 land in Ballileau, Ballaghmore and Coolissnactah. In 1724 he came to America bringing with him his family, and located in the great valley on the west side of what is now Downington, where he had purchased 500 acres of land. He died January 31,1738, and his widow on June 2 1, 1749. He was an elder in Caln Meeting, and esteemed by Friends.
     Thomas Valentine and family were Friends, and identified with the Kilconnor Monthly Meeting in Ireland. Of their children, Robert, a native of Bally Brummel, Ireland, married, in 1747, Rachel Edge, of Providence, Chester Co., Penn., and his son Robert, born in 1752, married, in 1773 , Ann Bond. Robert, the son of the emigrant, became a recommended minister in 1764, and traveled considerably in that capacity, including a visit to Great Britain at the close of the Revolutionary war. John Edge, the maternal grandfather of Rachel Edge, came to the country from St. Andrews, Holborn, in the County of Middlesex, England, and settled in Nether Providence about the year 1685. He was an earnest member of the Society of Friends. He had been subjected to heavy fines and imprisonment in his native county for refusing to act contrary to his
conscientious scruples, and on one occasion had to stand public trial.
     From Robert Valentine and Ann Bond came descendants of the name in Centre County. Their children were: Robert married Elizabeth Downing; George married Mary Downing; Samuel and Jacob D. died unmarried; Reuben B. married Sarah Downing; Abraham S. married Clarissa Miles; Bond married Lydia Fairlamb; Thomazine married Reuben Miller: and Rachael married Maj. Jonathan Kersley, of Detroit, Mich. Ann Bond was the daughter of Samuel and Thomazine (Downing) Bond, of West Whiteland, Chester county, and the granddaughter of Joseph Bond, who settled at Bristol, in Bucks county, Penn., in the early part of the eighteenth century; he was a large land owner, and was one of the petitioners for the incorporation of the borough, which was incorporated by letters patent from the Crown, November 14, 1720. Joseph Bond and John Hall were the first Burgesses of the town. The former represented his county in the Colonial Legislature.
     In 1815, Samuel, Jacob D., George, Reuben B., Abram S., and Bond Valentine, sons of Robert and Ann Bond, came from Chester county to Centre county, accompanied by Jacob Thomas, and leased the old Dunlop iron furnace erected by John Dunlop in 1802, and in 1821 purchased it. Mr. Thomas withdrew in 1817, and was succeeded by his son, William A. Thomas. They were all iron-masters, and for years were largely identified with the development of the iron interests of Centre County. They built additional forges and in 1824 built the first rolling mill in Centre County. In 1842 they abandoned the old furnace, and built one just outside of the borough of Bellefonte. Many of the sons of these men succeeded them to the business, and some are still connected with it. Referring to these men who built the first Friends Meeting House at Bellefonte, and who by birth were members of the Society, a writer says: "The rise of the Friends Meeting in Bellefonte seems worthy of some notice. It was established by four or five men, who, making no especial profession of religion, yet yielded to a simple apprehension of duty, and built a house for the worship of God. All of them became faithful humble followers of the Lord Jesus, and to one of them was committed the ministry of the Gospel of Christ. Friends Meeting is still regularly held in Bellefonte, and is largely composed of the descendants of those who established it." Of the Valentine brothers who came to Centre County, George, born in East Caln, September I, 1788, died in Bellefonte, July 13, 1857, married Mary Downing, born in Philadelphia, January 22, 1792, died January 27, 1879. issue: (1) Jacob Downing, born at Bellefonte October 4, 1823, died September 16, 1896, in the house in which he was born, it being one of the first houses built in Bellefonte. He was an iron-master, "upright and honest, and lived in accordance with the Quaker faith." He married Deborah Downing, a daughter of Richard and Sarah G. (Mount) Downing, issue: George, Jacob, Louise, Ellen and Robert. (2) Sarah married Dr. George Fox. (3) Eliza married Thomas S. Downing. (4) Reuben B., born in Bellefonte in 1829, where he died in 1871, was an iron-master, and one of the most successful managers of the Valentine Iron Works. He was also engaged extensively in farming, and was a conscientious and upright member of the Society of Friends. In 1857 he married Mary B. Jacobs, who was born at East Whiteland, Chester Co., Penn., a daughter of Joseph and Ann (Bowen) Jacobs, issue: Mary and Emily (deceased); Anna J; Julia (deceased); and Caroline M. (5) Caroline married Thompson Millikin. (6) George married Emily Jacobs (a sister of Mary B. Jacobs), issue: Jane H., Mary D., Sarah W. and Emily J.
     Taking up the history of the Downing family: Mary Downing (who married George Valentine) was the direct descendant of Thomas Downing, who was born in Bradninch, in Devonshire, England, in 1691, and who, as early as 1718, resided in Chester county, Penn., and from whom descended the numerous families of Downings in that county. For generations the Downings were farmers and millers. Richard Downing, a son of Thomas, married Mary Edge, and, of their children, Jacob Downing married Sarah Drinker, of Philadelphia, and they became the parents of Mary (Downing) Valentine. A son of Richard, also named Richard, married Sarah G. Mount, and their daughter Deborah became the wife of Jacob Valentine. Elizabeth Drinker, the grandmother of Mary (Downing) Valentine, kept a diary from 1759 to 1807, which was published in book form in 1889. She was a direct descendant of Philip Drinker (1), who was born in 1597 and died in 1647; came in 1635 from Exeter, England, and settled at Charlestown, Mass. Henry Drinker, the great-great-great-grandson of Philip, the grandfather of Mary Downing, married Elizabeth Sandwith. The latter descended from John Jervis, of Roscoe, Kings county, Ireland, who came to America in 1688, with a son Martyn, and purchased large tracts of land in New Jersey now called Jervis Sound. John Jervis was appointed a justice of the peace of New Jersey. Charles, another son, was court painter to King George II, a correspondent of the poet Pope, and translator of "Don Quixote. "Henry Drinker was an ironmaster and ship owner of Philadelphia; was arrested in 1777 and sent to Virginia under pretense of hostility to the American cause; he was a member of the. common council of Philadelphia, and a large landowner; he was born in 1734, and ,died in 1809. The mother of Deborah (Downing) Valentine, Sarah G. Mount, was the daughter of James Mount, whose father was Ezekial, the son of Thomas Mount, who came from England and was the owner of the land on which the city of Louisville, Ky., was built. He had many slaves, and was a man of wealth.
     Referring to the history of the Jacobs family, Mary B. and Emily (Jacobs) Valentine are in direct line of descent from John Jacobs (1) (the first of the family in America), who in 1700 settled on a portion of the Vanbibber tract of land in Providence, Philadelphia County. His death occurred in 1730. His grandson, John Jacobs (3), was the Speaker of the first .General Assembly of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. His brother, Israel, was a member of Congress in 1791, and another brother, Jesse, held a captain's commission and served in the Revolutionary war, participating in a number of important battles. Ann Bowen, mother of Mary B. and Emily (Jacobs) Valentine, was in direct line of descent from John Bowen (1), of Whiteland, Chester County, who died in 1715. The paternal grandmother of Mary B. and Emily (Jacobs) Valentine was Mary Brinton, of Thornburg, Delaware Co., Penn., who was in line from William Brinton (1), of Staffordshire, England, who settled in Concord, Birmingham Township, Delaware Co., Penn.,in 1684, and was among the earliest converts of George Fox. He bought large tracts of land in Chester County. He was born in 1630, and died in 1700. His son, William, was a member of the Provincial Assembly in 1666, and died in 1751. Joseph, of Thornbury, Delaware Co., Penn., the son of William (2), was an associate judge of Pennsylvania, and a member of the Provincial Assembly. Reuben B. Valentine, of the Valentine brothers coming to Centre County in 1815, was born in 1793, and died in 1841; married Sarah Downing (a sister of Mary Downing, the wife of his brother George), born June 17. 1797, died November 30, 1843, and their children were: (I) Mary married Dr. Elias W. Hale, a wealthy gentleman of influence, of Lewistown, born June 6, 1824, and died February 20, 1892; issue: Sarah, died young, and Ellen, the wife of G. Murray Andrews. (2) George was killed in a rolling mill at the age of five years. William Valentine died unmarried.
     Abraham S. Valentine, another of the original brothers locating in Centre county, died August 29, 1862 aged sixty-eight years; married Clarissa Miles, who died March 3, 1857, aged forty-nine years; was a member of the original firm and the inventor of the ore-washing machine since in general use, the adoption of which effected a revolution in the ore mining of this region. He was possessed of great business ability and foresight (being "a man far ahead of his time "), and it was due largely to his inventions and improvements that the Valentine charcoal iron achieved its widespread reputation. At the outbreak of the war of the Rebellion he was one of the liberal contributors to a subscription for the support of the soldiers' families. Two of his sons, Abram and Bond, were in the service for a time. Clarissa Miles, wife of Abram S., was a daughter of Evan Miles, who died May 10, 1838, in his sixty-ninth year, and of Rebecca George (of the family of George's Hill, Philadelphia), who died July 28, 1845, in her seventy-sixth year; both are buried in the graveyard at Milesburg. Evan Miles was the son of Richard Miles, and the nephew of Col. Samuel Miles, of Revolutionary fame. The latter served as a lieutenant in the expedition to Fort Duquesne; was wounded at Ligonia in an attack made by the French and Indians; commanded a regiment in 1760, and at the end of the campaign was left in command of the forces at Presque Isle (now Erie), Penn. He commanded a regiment in the Revolutionary war under Gen. Washington. While leading his regiment at the battle of Long Island, August 27, 1776, he was captured, and while a prisoner was made a brigadier-general for distinguished service. He was no less distinguished in civil life after the war, holding many responsible positions, among them that of mayor of Philadelphia. Richard Miles married Mary Pugh, who was a member of the Society of Friends, and in 1792 they located at Milesburg, Centre county, where both are buried. He was a captain of militia in the Revolution. His Death occurred December 16, 1823, in the eighty-fifth year of his age, and that of his wife, December 20, 1794, aged forty-four years. Richard Miles was the grandson of Richard, one of the brothers who came from South Wales in 1682 or 1683, and settled at Radnor, Pennsylvania.
     The children of Abraham S. Valentine and Clarissa (Miles) were: (1) Anna married S. Stewart Lyon, and their issue are-John; Anna; Clara, the wife of William Jasper Nicholas; Mary, the wife of Ellis L. Orvis; and Rebecca. (2) Rebecca M. married Evan Pugh, Ph. D., who lived only a few months after marriage, and left no issue; he was a scholarly gentleman and distinguished educator, and was the first president of the Pennsylvania State College. (3) Bond, born March 22, 1834, died April 19, 1889, married Mattie Kenney, who died August 25, 1882, in her forty-sixth year; their children are-Evan and Jane (died in infancy); Bond; and Edward K. The father of these was for years a member of the firm of Shortlidge & Co., of Bellefonte, dealers in grain and coal, and latterly he was engaged in the insurance business. "He was closely attached to the Society of Friends, and was very devoted to their teachings. He was a man possessing a pure Christian character, whom everyone honored. His friends were numbered by the hundreds, who looked upon him as a man worthy of imitation, because he followed as near as he could in the paths of divine teaching. He was courteous, genial, and enjoyed being genial whether in social or business life."(4) Abram S., who resides at Atlantic City, N. J., married Eliza U. Natt, of Philadelphia, daughter of Thomas J. and Anne Natt, of England, and their children are-Charles, Arthur and Edward. Abram S. is connected with the Valentine Iron Works at Bellefonte, and for years took an active part in the business interests of Bellefonte and vicinity. During the war of the Rebellion he was for a time in the service, and contributed largely toward the support of the soldiers and their families. (5) Evan M., who resides in Philadelphia, married Mary J. Taylor, of Doylestown, who died. Their children are Harry S. and Abram S. (6) Samuel and (7) Blanchard died in infancy, (8) and (9) Clara and Mary, respectively, unmarried. (10) Henry C. now connected with the Valentine Iron Works, married Sarah, a daughter of Thomas, and grand-.daughter of Judge Thomas Burnside, and their children are-Stanley, Helen, Rebecca and Henry. Henry C. is a member of the borough council.
     Bond Valentine, the youngest of the original Valentine brothers, did not remain in the iron business long, but early turned his attention to the law. His birth occurred in 1798. His early paternal training was such as to instill in his mind those principles of morality which were the guiding and controlling influence of his after life. He became a distinguished lawyer, and served in the General Assembly, 1830-32, from Centre County. In 1842, influenced by conscientious convictions, he abandoned the law that he might devote his life to the public ministry in the Society of Friends. The Friends Review in an obituary notice, said: "His sterling integrity and the well-known simplicity of his character, averse to mere forms, won for him the increased confidence and respect of the community, and his addresses have been marked by impassioned earnestness. In social circles our friend was very attractive, without reserve, original, genial and simple."
     To his first wife, Lydia, daughter of John and Susannah (Ashbridge) Fairland, farming people of near West Chester, Penn., and of English descent, two children were born, the elder of whom died in infancy; the other is Robert Valentine, who has long been at the head of the firm of Valentine & Co., of Bellefonte. Robert Valentine is one of the prominent and wealthy citizens of Bellefonte. His second wife, to whom he was married in 1861, was Mary Natt, daughter of Thomas J. and Anne Natt, born in England, and their children are: Emily and Julia, the latter being the wife of Dr. Bond, of Baltimore. The homes of Robert Valentine and family, and the family of Reuben B. Valentine, are particularly striking, and are of the several imposing and beautiful places of the mountain town of Bellefonte. The former, a modern built, native stone structure, commodious and substantial, stands on one of the highest points of the town, and is very commanding in point of view. While the other is located a short distance from the town on a beautifully situated farm, "Burnham," this suburban countryseat is surrounded by spacious grounds, and the old grey limestone house, built by Reuben B. Valentine in 1856, is of the Colonial style. with Robert Valentine at Citation.9

Namesake of Downingtown, Pennsylvania.

Thomas left England in 1717, settling on the Brandywine River near Downingtown, PA. He established a mill on the river and had a large family. The area was first known as Milltown, and later, Downing's Town. In the mid-1800s the name was clarified and today is known as Downingtown.

No marker exists in the cemetery for him. It is not certain if this is even the Quaker cemetery he was buried in; three other Quaker meetinghouse cemeteries are in the area. As this one ultimately became his namesake, it is entered there until other facts may come to light.

Thomas Downing Valentine and Downing family information provided by George Valentine (manuscript.)10

Thomas Downing "Biographies of Chester County Residents before 1790": Gives date of birth as 14 Dec 1691 States, "Founded Downingtown (PA), c. 1735

"A Corner in Ancestors", by Eleanor Lexington, Copyright by McClure Syndication
"One immigrant came from Devonshire. He was Thomas Downing, and a member of the Society of Friends. Pennsylvania was naturally the place he chose for a home. Downingtown is the name of the town he helped settle, and the old homestead still stands" (Newspaper article, c. 1940)

"The Devonshire Downings" prepared by John Perot, Ardmore, PA, put together fro the entries in the parish records of Bradninch, Devonshire, England, in 1901 an 1903: "Thomas Downing, son of Thomas Downing, born December 14, 1691, and was baptized January 6, 1691/2, at Bradninch. The Bradninch records show that a Thomas Downing married Judeth Bending on 2 Jun 1717. Judeth, wife of Thomas Downing, was buried 26 Jan 1723. According to the Downingtown records, 'his first wife was said to have been named Ellen, and his second Tomazine, who was perhaps the mother to all his children. On Dec 1756 he married Jane Alborne (or Albin).' There seems to be some error here, unless he had two wives before Tomazine; Ellen and Judeth. Thomas Downing came to Pennsylvania before 1718, where he was taxed in Concord township from 1718 to 1732; later moving to Downingtown, where he died age 81. The Downingtown records says that two of his children were born in England and the Bradninch recoreds show the births of a Thomasine (1715) and Thomas (1717)."

Notes of contributor Sandra K. Farney: "He was a founder of Downingtown, Pennsylvania, a Welsh settlement. He settled on the east branch of Brandywine Creek and was a farmer, miller, and merchant. He was a Friend (Quaker) and was a member of the Falls, Birmingham, Wilmington, & Baltimore Friends Meetings."

From "History of Chester County", page 525: "There is reason to think that while in concord he operated a mill belonging to Nathaniel Newlin, and he and his descendants continued to be mill-owners at Downingtown for several generations."

Thomas Downing from Futhey and Cope, "History of Chester County", p. 525"
"DOWNING, Thomas, born in Bradnich, in Devonshire, England, Dec. 14, 1691, married, first, Ellen ----, and, second, Thomazine ----, who was perhaps the mother of all the children, two of whom were born in England. He was a taxable in Concord township from 1718 to 1732. At Concord Monthly Meeting, 6, 3, 1730, 'Thomas Downing & his wife made application to this meeting to com under the care of friends; they have produced papers from under severall friends hands of their sober and orderly conversatons where they have Lived, this meeting receiveth them.' In 1733 they removed to Sadsbury, but in two or three years after settled a the place since known as Downingtown. Thomas married a third wife, Jane Algin, widow of James, and daughter of John and Mary Edge, 12, 15 1756. She was a minister and died 1, 23, 1759. He died 1, 15, 1772. there is reason to think that while in Concord he operated a mill belonging to Nathaniel Newlin, and he and his descendants continued to be mill-owners at Downingtown for several generations."\

per George Valentine ms: "emigrated to Chester Co., PA prior to 1718."4,2 He and Thomazine Beer were Quaker.3

Thomas Downing and Thomazine Beer immigrated between 1717 and 1719 to Brandywine River, Downingtown, Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA; probably between births of son Thomas (b in England 1717) and son Richard (b in PA 1719.)1

Thomas Downing and Thomazine Beer lived between 1718 and 1732 at Concord Township, Chester Co. (now Delaware Co.), Pennsylvania, USA; per Cope [1901] p. 96: "He was a taxable in Concord township 1718 to 1732."6,3

Thomas Downing lived between 1733 and 1735 at Sadsbury Township, Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA.6

Thomas Downing lived between 1735 and 1772 at East Caln (later Downingtown), Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA; per Cope [1901] p. 96: "...where Thomas Downing purchased from John Taylor, by deeds of 3e and 4th of July, 1739, 561 acres of land."6

Thomas Downing left a will on 9 September 1769.9
