     Thomas Downing was born on 27 March 1717 at Bradninch, Devon, England.1 He was baptized on 9 June 1717 at Bradninch, Devon, England; Quaker records indicate birth in Concord Twp, Chester Co., PA, but other sources indicate the first two born children were "probably born in England". The Bradninch, England, baptisms from the Devon Record Office show Thomas baptized on 9 Jun 1717. This would certainly indicate he was born in England.2
Thomas Downing died on 19 November 1737 at age 20.3
     He witnessed the immigration of Thomas Downing and Thomazine Beer between 1717 and 1719 at Brandywine River, Downingtown, Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA; probably between births of son Thomas (b in England 1717) and son Richard (b in PA 1719.)4
Thomas Downing 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."5,6

John Downing died on 20 December 1796 at Chester Co., Pennsylvania, USA, at age 76.4,5
     From 'Chester County and Its People', by W. W. Thomson, 1898: 'John Downing continued to reside at Downingtown, where in 1764, he was assessed with two hundred and forty acres of land and buildings, tavern, etc., worth 100 pounds per annum; sixty acres of uncultivated land, five horses, six cattle, thirteen sheep, and one servant. He was a tavernkeeper from 1761 to 1771, at the eatern tavern on the Lancaster Road, then or subsequently called the 'King in Arms,' and later, the Washington Inn.6'

John Downing
Recorts of Helen F. Snow, genealogist: 'John Downing became a tavern keeper about 1760 and after several years was succeeded by Richard Cheyney at the Sign of the Kin in Arms, where the Revolutionary county committee met in 1776.' Pennypacker says John was a taver keeper from 1761 to 1771. The King at Arms became the Washington Inn, which wa still owned by a Downing descendant, Clara Fox, when I visited her. In 1764 Richard was assessed in E. Caln with 190 acres, 'His tax was L6:3:3, being the largest in the township, and his brother John was next below him.6'

John Downing
per Futhey and Cope, "History of Chester County", p. 525: "He became a tavern-keeper about 1760, and after several years was succeeded by Richard Cheyney at the sign of the "King in Arms," where the Revolutionary county committee met in 1776."1
John Downing 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."7,8
     An interesting newspaper article from "The Pennsylvania Gazette", May 2, 1765: "Went away, on the 24th of April, from the house of JOHN DOWNING, Tavern keeper, in East Caln Township, Chester county, one John Smith, of swarthy complexion, marked with the smallpox, about five feet nine inches high; had on when he went away, a Swanskin jacket, and a brown lincey one under it; he stole a new broadcloth jacket, of a grey colour, a new pair of breeches, one pair of stockings, and a beaver hat, lined with white; he is well known all over America. Whoever takes up and secures said Smith, shall have three pounds reward, and reasonable charges paid by Godfrey Richards."
     In another instance, John placed the following ad in the same paper, December 12, 1765: "Came to the plantation of John Downing in East Caln Township, Chester county about the 18th day of November last, two stray creatures, a horse and a mare, the horse is of a black colour, a natural pacer, and has neither brand nor ear mark, about 12 years old; the mare a dark bay, has a bald face, paces and trots neither brand nor ear mark, about 6 years old. The owner or owners are desired to come and prove their property, pay charges, and take them away."2

John Downing appeared in the census of 1768 at 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.
