William Newlande b 1550 burial 12 April, 1593 Fareham, Hampshire,England

A record of baptism for Nicholas Newlin March: 01, 1571/72.

A record of marriage between Nycholas Newlande and Dorythe Gaskkyne: September 27, 1601

A record of the marriage of Nicholas Newlin and Jane Hide: August 04, 1629.

A record of baptism that shows that Nicholas Newlin (immigrant patriarch of the New World Newlins) was the third Nicholas and the sonne of Nicholas Newlin junior": 30 May 1630 (9 months and a few weeks after Nic and Jane married for those of you keeping score.)

I propose that these indicate that Nicholas Newlin (son of William) bpt. March 01, 1571/2 is the same Nycholas Newlande who married Dorythe Gaskkyne September 27, 1601. Also, that they were the parents of the Nicholas Newlin who married Jane Hide August 04, 1629. That Nicholas and Jane were the parents of Nicholas the "Immigrant Patriarch".

I have reservations about one reported birthdate of 1620 for Nicholas.

Warmest regards,
Larry Newlin

Thomas Mendenhall Ancestry.com 29730.GED and 18259.GED have Francis (1588 - 7 Nov 1673) asthe father of Thomas, while the Mendenhall/Henkle website has Thomas(1609 - ?). The line through Francis continues to John (c 1562 - ?).29730.GED lists the following siblings of Thomas: Benjamin (21 Aug 1614 -?); Moses (c 1616 - ?); Francis (3 Dec 1618 - ?); Mary (c 1620 - ?); andJane (c 1622 - ?). I have placed Francis as the son of John (1560-?), q.v.2

Thomas Mendenhall Two sons and a daughter of Thomas emigrated to America; Benjamin, John and Mary. They landed at Philadelphia in the Fall of 1682. Benjamin and John purchased two thousand acres of land from William Penn for the sum of three pounds per hundred acres and a tax of ten shillings a year to England on every one hundred acres. The land was located on both sides of the Brandywine River in Chester County, Pennsylvania. Later it was divided into farms and occupied by a number of the descending families. It has all passed out of the family name, except Springdale Farm which is located among the hills and fertile fields of southwestern Pennsylvania, close to the beautiful historic Brandywine where Washington and Lafayette played an important part during the Revolutionary War. Another son, Moses and his older sister Margery and her husband Thomas Martin and their four young daughters arrived on the ship "Unicorn" from Bristol England on December 16, 1685.
As the Mendenhalls were Quakers or member of the Society of Friends, of high standing, they were opposed to war, refused to bear arms and were not active participants in the Revolutionary nor Civil Wars. However, they often provided medical care for the wounded of the battles and some of the Mendenhall used their teams to haul cannon and supplies at the Battle of Brandywine which was fought upon and around the original Mendenhall farm. Some of them were cast out of the Friends Meeting at Kennett, Pennsylvania, for their activities in the Revolution, helping Generals Washington and LaFayette. Thomas' will, dated June 2, 1682, was proved in Prerogative Court of Canterbury at Somerset House, London, England, November 17, 1682.5

Thomas Mendenhall left a will on 2 June 1682; Thomas' will dated 2 Jun 1682 was proved in Perogative Court of Canterbury at Somerset House, London 17 November 1682. In the copy of the will of Thomas Mildenhall there is mention of "eldest son Thomas Mildenhall, my sonne John Mildenhall .... his brother Benjamin Mildenhall, my son Stephen Mildenhall, his brother Moses Mildenhall, my daughter Mary, daughter Margery wife of Thomas Martin, daughter Joane wife of John Spier, my now wife Joane Mildenhall."

     Mary Draper was born in 1732 at Philadelphia, Philadelphia Co., Pennsylvania, USA.1 She married Capt. William Ingles, son of Thomas Ingles, in 1750 at Drapers Meadows, Augusta Co. (now Montgomery Co.), Virginia, USA.1
Mary Draper died in February 1815 at Ingles Ferry, Tazewell Co., Virginia, USA.1
     Mary Draper Mary Draper Ingles was truly a heroic figure. She was born in 1732 in Philadelphia, PA to George Draper and Eleoner Hardin of Ireland. She and her family moved to Draper's Meadow in Virginia and in 1750 she married William Ingles. They were the first white couple married West of the Allegheny Mountains.

Mary and William had two sons. They lived at Draper's Meadow next to Mary's brother John and his wife Betty. Mary's mother also lived there, but her father had been killed by Indians on a hunting trip in Kentucky.

On 8 July 1755, while William Ingles and his brother in law John Draper were in the fields working, Indians attacked the settlement where Mary and William lived. They captured Mary and her sons, George and Tommy. Mary, Tommy, and George were taken along with Mary's sister-in-law, Betty Draper and some other settlers of Draper's Meadow. Mary's mother, Eleoner Hardin Draper was scalped as was the baby of Betty Draper. Betty suffered a broken arm which Mary tried to take care along the way.

William Ingles and John Draper were in the fields when they heard the Indians, but without weapons. They later followed, but were not able to find them. William and John spent the next months continually looking for Mary and John's wife Betty. They established a ferry called Ingles Ferry to help the settlers have an avenue of escape from the Indians in the future. Mary would never return to Draper's Meadow.

The captives were taken into totally uncharted territory where no white person had ever been. It was a hard and grueling trek with some killing of the settlers along the way. Mary kept her wits about her however, and made notes of different landmarks so that she could escape and get back home. She made knots in a rope belt she worn around her waist for each day of the journey so that she would know how long they walked.

When they finally arrived at the Indian Camp, most of the captives were forced to run the gauntlet. Mary had shown such tremendous courage on the journey that the Indians did not make her do this.

There were French Trapper's at the Indian village and Mary made blankets and shirts for the Indians and French in exchange for being allowed to keep some blankets for her sons. Eventually, Mary's sons Tommy and George were sold away from her. George was 3 and Tommy 4. George died soon after the separation. Mary knew that the only chance she had to get her sons back was to get back to Will and tell him where they were.

Mary escaped after several months and she and a German lady, who had been captured on a raid in the Pennsylvania area, began their walk back to Virginia. Along the way they encountered incredible cold and hardship. Things became so desperate that at one point the German woman tried to eat Mary. She finally made her way home and sent a rescue party for the German lady. When Mary returned home at 23 years old she had lost all of her teeth and her hair was snow white.

Mary had made a trip which no white man or army had so far made. She had done this without food or clothes and under the worst of all conditions. Because of what she had seen and accomplished, Mary was able to help the army chart this territory.

Not long after her return, Mary and Will found themselves alone at a fort. Will had taken Mary there because she had such a strong feeling the Indians were going to attack again. She was right and the Indians did begin to attack. There were so many of them, that Will began to run out of ammunition and so Mary made the bullets as fast as Will could fire them.

Mary and Will had 4 more children following her return from Indian Captivity. After 15 years with the Indians, Will and Mary were able to ransom Tommy back. Some years later Tommy's own wife and children were captured in the very same manner that he and his mother had been.

Mary and William continued to contribute to the establishment of this country. William was a Colonel in the Revolution and all of their children went on to contribute equally as well. Thomas was close friends with Thomas Jefferson and two of their daughters married Generals in the Army. William died in Virginia April of 1782. Mary lived to be 83 and died in Feb. of 1815 at Ingles Ferry in Montgomery Co., Virginia.

Mary Draper "Annals of Augusta Co., Virginia," by J. A. Waddell (p. 72) says William & Mary were married in Staunton, Va. (now Blacksburg.) GKJ-5.
