WILLIAM1 HEWES, the emigrant lived in the parish of St. Paul, Shadwell, co. of Middlesex, England, and was a cooper. He d. Chittester Co., Pa., 1698. He m. in England Deborah (____). who came with him to New Jersey.

The following is from History and Genealogy of Fenwick's Colony, pages 496-7, by Thomas Shourds, originally published Bridgetown, New Jersey 1876, reprinted by Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, 1976,

In the Autumn of 1682 John Fenwick sold all his lands in the Salem Tenth, which had been previously disposed of, to William Penn, proprietor of the province of Pennsylvania, except 150,000 acres. Penn, soon after the purchase, appointed James Nevell, of Salem, to be his agent in disposing of said lands. Nevell belonged to the Society of Friends, and was a lawyer, and a man in whose ability and integrity John Fenwick appears to have had implicit confidence. I presume on that account the great law-giver, William Penn, chose such a man as James Nevell to the responsible office, and Richard Tindall was continued surveyor-general, and John Worlidge his deputy. The following are the names of the persons that purchased different tracts of land in the Salem Tenth: . . . . . A warrant to Richard Tindall to lay out 110 acres of fast land marsh on Oldman's creek, for William Hughes, as part of 500 acres granted by Governor Penn to William Fleetwood. There was at the time $100 due for quit rent on the 500 acre tract.

William Penn had given large tracts of New Jersey and Pennsylvania land to John Fenwick, who organized a company called the "Delaware Lands" in order to grant the land. The first grant to William Hewes shows he had land in Salem County, New Jersey, perhaps on Cohansey or Alloways Creek. Later deeds show him having purchased land across the Delaware River, in Marcus Hook, Pa. William Hewes’ numerous transactions are recorded in the Salem County Deeds and the New Jersey Archives.

1675 Jun 24. Articles of agreement. John Fenwick with John Edridge, Edward Dade, Edward Wade, Joshua Barkstead, William Shippree, John Smith, Joseph Helmesley, Thomas Hutchinson (by J.H.), Roger Pedrick, Richard Morgan, William Hughes, Thomas Manwaring, Edmund Warner, Richard Noble, Roger Hackings, John Maddocke, Edward Broadway, Thomas Anderson, John Spooner, Edward Champneys, Richard Rickston, William Hancock and John Barkstead, purchasers, propriators, freeholders, adventurers and planters in Fenwick's Colony in N.J.: that the records of their deeds shall be in law to all intents and purposes as effectual, as if they were in actual possession of the land, and that every one of them shall, upon going to said Colony, be satisfied with the lot or lots laid out in Lots No. 20, 21, 26, 27, 36, 47, 50, 57, 63, 72; provided that any such purchaser &c., dissatisfied with the allotment, shall be debarred from any further claim. (NJ Arch 21:563)

March 24, 1674/5. Patent. John Fenwick to William Hughes of the Parish of St. Paul, Shadwell, Co. of Middlesex, England, cooper, and wife Deborah for 500 acres in N.J.(Salem County Records, Book I, p. 36; NJ Arch., 21:560.)

June 13, 1679. Warrant for the survey for William Hews of Marcus Hook, Western Shore of Delaware, cooper, of 500 acres adjoining John Mattocks and Thos. Anderson, bought of John Fenwick in England March 24, 1674/5. (Salem County Records, Book II, p. 5; NJ Arch., 21:548.)

1679 June 24. Return of survey of the preceding 1,000 acres on Mattock's alias Unknowne Creek, along the Southside of Mattock's plantation and the Northside of Wm. Hews, W. said creek. (NJ Arch., 21:548.)

This return of survey can be considered the purchase date. William Hewes continued to purchase land in Salem County, notably on what is now known as Oldmans Creek.

1686-Aug. 9, Deed, John Stanbanck of Ouldman’s Creek W.J. to William Hughs of the same place, cooper, and wife Deborah, for 150 acres on said creek, part of 300 acres granted to be laid out in Salem Tenth by William Penn Aug. 22, 1683. (Salem County Records, Book III, p. 253; NJ Arch., 21:584.)

Nov. 10, 1686. Deed. William Fleetwood of Northampton River alias Rancocus Cr., W.J., planter, by his attorney James Nevill of Salem, W.J., planter, to William Hews of Chittester, Penna, cooper, and wife Deborah, for 110 acres, of which 10 a. at a point, on which is an island of pines, over against Powell’s plantation; the other 100 a. on Ouldman’s Creek over against grantees new dwelling house; the whole part of 500 acres, bought by said Fleetwood of Wm. Penn, to be located in Salem Tenth. (Salem County Records, Book III, p. 163.)

1687 Dec 2. Assignment by William Hughs and wife Deborah to George Haslewood of Salem Town, carpenter for "the within granted 500 acres, with special consent of said Deborah, wife of Wm. Hughs of Chechester, Chester Co." (NJ Arch., 21:584.)

Perhaps this sale/assignment was in anticipation of his death, and that's the reason his estate was so small. Although there is no record to the effect, perhaps William Hewes assigned this property with the proviso that he and his wife be cared for during the remainder of their lives. Such provisions were not uncommon. However, identification of George Haslewood of Salem Town has not been made.

While it is not shown on many modern maps, Chichester (or Chittester) is adjacent to Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania.

William Hewes was a Quaker. Early on the Quakers had no regular Meeting and met at various members’ houses until January 17, 1684, when William Hewes, along with John Bezar and John Harding, are recorded as being present at "the fearst Monthly Meeting held by Friends at Chichester, Penn....". Even after this date the Quaker population was so sparse that meetings were held in both Chichester and Concord, Pa., and after a while they met only in Concord "...on account of the thinness of our Monthly Meeting...." Meetings resumed in earnest in Chichester about 1687.

William Hewes Sr.
He lived in the parish of St. Paul, Shadwell, Co. of Middlesex, England.His wife, Deborah, came with him to New Jersey. The following is from History and Genealogy of Fenwick's Colony, pages496-7, by Thomas Shourds, originally published Bridgetown, New Jersey1876, reprinted by Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, 1976. In the Autumn of 1682 John Fenwick sold all his lands in the Salem Tenth,which had been previously disposed of, to William Penn, proprietor of theprovince of Pennsylvania, except 150,000 acres. Penn, soon after thepurchase, appointed James Nevell, of Salem, to be his agent in disposingof said lands. Nevell belonged to the Society of Friends, and was alawyer, and a man in whose ability and integrity John Fenwick appears tohave had implicit confidence. I presume on that account the greatlaw-giver, William Penn, chose such a man as James Nevell to theresponsible office, and Richard Tindall was continued surveyor-general,and John Worlidge his deputy. The following are the names of the personsthat purchased different tracts of land in the Salem Tenth: . . . . . Awarrant to Richard Tindall to lay out 110 acres of fast land marsh onOldman's creek, for William Hughes, as part of 500 acres granted byGovernor Penn to William Fleetwood. There was at the time $100 due forquit rent on the 500 acre tract. William Penn had given large tracts of New Jersey and Pennsylvania landto John Fenwick, who organized a company called the 'Delaware Lands' inorder to grant the land. The first grant to William Hewes shows he hadland in Salem County, New Jersey, perhaps on Cohansey or Alloways Creek.Later deeds show him having purchased land across the Delaware River, inMarcus Hook, Pa. William Hewes’ numerous transactions are recorded in theSalem County Deeds and the New Jersey Archives. 1675 Jun 24. Articles of agreement. John Fenwick with John Edridge,Edward Dade, Edward Wade, Joshua Barkstead, William Shippree, John Smith,Joseph Helmesley, Thomas Hutchinson (by J.H.), Roger Pedrick, RichardMorgan, William Hughes, Thomas Manwaring, Edmund Warner, Richard Noble,Roger Hackings, John Maddocke, Edward Broadway, Thomas Anderson, JohnSpooner, Edward Champneys, Richard Rickston, William Hancock and JohnBarkstead, purchasers, propriators, freeholders, adventurers and plantersin Fenwick's Colony in N.J.: that the records of their deeds shall be inlaw to all intents and purposes as effectual, as if they were in actualpossession of the land, and that every one of them shall, upon going tosaid Colony, be satisfied with the lot or lots laid out in Lots No. 20,21, 26, 27, 36, 47, 50, 57, 63, 72; provided that any such purchaser &c.,dissatisfied with the allotment, shall be debarred from any furtherclaim. (NJ Arch 21:563) March 24, 1674/5. Patent. John Fenwick to William Hughes of the Parish ofSt. Paul, Shadwell, Co. of Middlesex, England, cooper, and wife Deborahfor 500 acres in N.J.(Salem County Records, Book I, p. 36; NJ Arch.,21:560.) June 13, 1679. Warrant for the survey for William Hews of Marcus Hook,Western Shore of Delaware, cooper, of 500 acres adjoining John Mattocksand Thos. Anderson, bought of John Fenwick in England March 24, 1674/5.(Salem County Records, Book II, p. 5; NJ Arch., 21:548.) 1679 June 24. Return of survey of the preceding 1,000 acres on Mattock'salias Unknowne Creek, along the Southside of Mattock's plantation and theNorthside of Wm. Hews, W. said creek. (NJ Arch., 21:548.) This return of survey can be considered the purchase date. William Hewescontinued to purchase land in Salem County, notably on what is now knownas Oldmans Creek. 1686-Aug. 9, Deed, John Stanbanck of Ouldman’s Creek W.J. to WilliamHughs of the same place, cooper, and wife Deborah, for 150 acres on saidcreek, part of 300 acres granted to be laid out in Salem Tenth by WilliamPenn Aug. 22, 1683. (Salem County Records, Book III, p. 253; NJ Arch.,21:584.) Nov. 10, 1686. Deed. William Fleetwood of Northampton River aliasRancocus Cr., W.J., planter, by his attorney James Nevill of Salem, W.J.,planter, to William Hews of Chittester, Penna, cooper, and wife Deborah,for 110 acres, of which 10 a. at a point, on which is an island of pines,over against Powell’s plantation; the other 100 a. on Ouldman’s Creekover against grantees new dwelling house; the whole part of 500 acres,bought by said Fleetwood of Wm. Penn, to be located in Salem Tenth.(Salem County Records, Book III, p. 163.) 1687 Dec 2. Assignment by William Hughs and wife Deborah to GeorgeHaslewood of Salem Town, carpenter for 'the within granted 500 acres,with special consent of said Deborah, wife of Wm. Hughs of Chechester,Chester Co.' (NJ Arch., 21:584.) Perhaps this sale/assignment was in anticipation of his death, and that'sthe reason his estate was so small. Although there is no record to theeffect, perhaps William Hewes assigned this property with the provisothat he and his wife be cared for during the remainder of their lives.Such provisions were not uncommon. However, identification of GeorgeHaslewood of Salem Town has not been made. While it is not shown on many modern maps, Chichester (or Chittester) isadjacent to Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania. William Hewes was a Quaker. Early on the Quakers had no regular Meetingand met at various members’ houses until January 17, 1684, when WilliamHewes, along with John Bezar and John Harding, are recorded as beingpresent at 'the fearst Monthly Meeting held by Friends at Chichester,Penn....'. Even after this date the Quaker population was so sparse thatmeetings were held in both Chichester and Concord, Pa., and after a whilethey met only in Concord '...on account of the thinness of our MonthlyMeeting....'

The settlement was in fact so small that finally it was ordered "on account of the thinness of our Monthly Meetings they be held at Concord, Pennsylvania" (Concord, Pa., records of Friends' Monthly Meetings, page 150).

William Hewes Sr.
In my research of the northwestern Virginia Hughes family I have not been able to get any farther back than William Hughes, who died in Hampshire Co., Va., (now West Virginia) 1767; but I notice he has also been listed as of New Jersey or Pennsylvania, with wife Mary Withers, and that he was a son of William Hewes and Sarah Bezer and grandson of William Hewes and wife Deborah (___), who were Quakers and of English descent, who came to Oldman's Creek, Salem Co., NJ.

By 1700 there were enough people by the name of Hughes in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and northwestern Virginia to confuse just about everybody.

The Hughes of northwestern Virginia spelled the name "Hughes;" and many of those of New Jersey/Pennsylvania spelled the name "Hewes," although "Hughes" and "Hughs" also show up in this branch.

There was indeed a William Hewes of Chester Co., Penn., who married Mary Withers, and he was son of William Hughes and Sarah Bezer, and grandson of William Hewes and Deborah of England, New Jersey and Penn. According to Chester (and its Vicinity) Delaware Co., in Pennsylvania with Genealogical Sketches of Some Old Families, by John Hill Martin, 1877, page 500 of the reprint, the children of William Hewes and Mary Withers were William, John, Samuel, Isaac, Caleb, Sarah, Lydia, Rebecca and Hannah.

The children of William Hughes of Hampshire Co., Va., were Hugh, Thomas, William, Evan, Mary (m. Mr. Anderson), Sudna (m. Solomon Carpenter), Sarah (m. Mr. Baker), Ellis/Elias, all of whom were mentioned in his will dated Hampshire Co., Va., 30 Dec 1762, proved 9 Jun 1767. The name of the wife of William Hughes of Hampshire County, Va., is unknown. It has been suggested that her name was Sudna because that name appears frequently in his descendants.

The New Jersey/Pennsylvania Hewes were English, well educated, fairly well off and were Quakers, although some of them married out of the faith and some were outright disowned. The Hughes of northwestern Virginia were said to have been of Welsh descent and were mostly illiterate backwoodsmen. Jesse, Elias and Thomas Hughes, grandsons of William of Hampshire County, were Indian killers and almost as savage as the Indians they hated and killed. They spent their lives hunting down Indians, seeking them out, and killing them — good Indians or bad, it made no difference to them.

Among the New Jersey Quaker family was Joseph4 Hewes (Aaron3, William2,1), who was a signer to the Declaration of Independence. He was born in Kingston, N.J., 1730 to Aaron and Providence (Worth) Hughes. The following is from pages 768, 774-5 of Sanderson's Biography of the Signers to the Declaration of Independence, revised and edited by Robert T. Conrad, published by Thomas, Cowperthwait & Co., 253 Market Street, Philadelphia, 1847. This book is in my possession.

Joseph Hewes was born in the year 1730 at Kingston, New Jersey, and after enjoying the advantages of education common at that period, in the immediate neighbourhood of Princeton college, he went to Philadelphia to acquire a knowledge of commercial business. . . . . he was soon one of the large number of thriving colonial merchants . . . . Mr. Hewes did not remove to North Carolina until he was thirty years of age, previous to which time he had been residing at New York and Philadelphia, alternately, with occasional and frequent visits to his friends in New Jersey. . . . His end was rapidly approaching; the last vote given by him in congress was on the twenty-ninth of October, after which he was wholly confined to his chamber until the tenth of November, when he expired, in the fiftieth year of his age. On the day of his death, congress being informed of the event, and of the intention of his friends to inter his remains on the following day, resolved that they would attend the funeral with crape round the left arm, and continue in mourning for the space of one month: that a committee should be appointed to superintend the ceremony, the Rev. Mr. White their chaplain, should officiate on the occasion, and that invitations should be sent to the general assembly and the president and supreme executive council of Pennsylvania, the minister plenipotentiary of France, and other persons of distinction. The funeral ceremonies were accordingly conducted with all the pomp and display which the simple manners and sobriety of temper, then prevalent in Philadelphia, would admit. A large concourse of people, including all the distinguished personages, civil and military, witnessed the interment of his remains in the burial ground of Christ church, and the outward show of respect to his memory was not, in this instance, forced or insincere. . . . He left a considerable fortune, but no children to inherit it."

Below is a brief rendition of the descendants of William Hewes, immigrant from England to New Jersey, and great-grandfather of Joseph Hewes, signer to the Declaration of Independence. I prepared this in April 2000 after there was a flurry of correspondence on the Internet about Hewes of New Jersey & Pennsylvania and Hughes of Virginia. There were many conflicting data presented, but nothing was really decided about who begot whom. I recently added some material from John Hill Martin's Chester (and its Vicinity) Delaware Co., in Pennsylvania with Genealogical Sketches of Some Old Families. I also recently received some material from Early Church Records of Delaware County, Pennsylvania, Vol. 2, by Henry C. Peden Jr., and John Pitts Launey.3

William Hewes Sr. lived at London, England.1

Edward Bezer
Marriage date of Jeane Lawrence 7 Apr 1654
After careful evaluation of the Wiltshire Co. Eng. records this researcher feels the BEZER fa mily of old Chester Co., PA, has to descend from a child of Edward BURCHER "Earl of Bath". No te the passing down of the name FRANCIS in several generations of descendants also.

I am connecting our lineage to Edward BOURCHIER Earl of Bath, pending further investigatio n into this linkage. I have found a WILLIAM BREACHER (1700) and An EDWARD BURCHER, who donated Bells to a parish in Tilsbury, Wiltshire England. I think the spelling of the name might be significant here. The first Bell was donated by William Brounker (Bourchier) in 1612. (Se e Wilt Notes & Inquerys for Brounker lineage)

XCK: Edward of Devonshire (Earl of Bath ?) for possible lineage???Will: Chester County Pennsy lvania (insert)
(Source: Article in Pa. Gen Mag re John Bezer, Comm.), and died September 08, 1664 in 8.7.1664 (Source: chart by L. M. Irwin in Salem Co. HS gives this exact date; yr. 1664 given in Beezer gen. by Hannum in PA St. Lib; 1664 in book Lawmaking & Legislators in Pa; Sept. 8, 1664 per Pa Gen. Mag.) He married (1) JEAN (MN-Lawrence) BEZER. He married (2). EDWARD BEZER , 1ST WIFE Nove mber 21, 1631 in Alderton, Wiltshire, Engl. (Source: recorded in parish register per John Bez er article in Pa. Gen. Mag.)

I am confused about which Stuart/Stewart girl married which "John Stewart, Master of Buchan". Both marriages here are taken from Burke's Peerage (Stuart - Earls of Moray Family Page), but there seems to be a confusion.

From FindAGrave.com:
     Birth:      1652, Truro, Cornwall, England
     Death:      1708, Marcus Hook, Delaware County, Pennsylvania, USA
     John Grubb was an early Delaware Valley settler from Cornwall, England, arriving on the ship Kent in 1677 with his brother Henry. John and his wife Frances (maiden name unknown), with nine children all surviving well into adulthood, are the ancestors of perhaps the largest domestic family of Grubb descendants, with many notable members.
     John owned a 175 acre farm at what became known as Grubb's Corner, today's Arden, DE. The area is marked by a commemorative plaque installed there by the family at the Grubb Family Burying Ground. The plaque is shown here. John also established a tannery near the Delaware River that his sons incorporated into a classic trading triangle involving iron sent from Pennsylvania to the Virginia frontier in exchange for fur pelts sent to the tannery.
     John, originally a Quaker, was one of the settlers who greeted William Penn (with whom he later had a long-standing feud) when he arrived at New Castle in 1682, before he founded Philadelphia. John served two terms in the Pennsylvania Provincial Assembly and was one of the 150 signers of the Concessions and Agreements for the Province of West Jersey.
     While no marker for John's grave has survived, he was one of the founders of the original Saint Martin's Episcopal Church and lived nearby in a house that survived until 1989.

John Henry Grubb
John Grubb came to America in 1677 on the Kent. While there is no passenger list per se, there is strong evidence that John Grubb was one of the Kent's passengers. In 1677, John was either a Quaker or closely associated with Quakers. After his death in 1708, John was buried at the St. Martin's Episcopal Church in Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania. The original St. Martins was built in 1700, although the current structure dates to 1845. The deed stipulates that no Quaker be buried there. While this may have been relaxed later, it is unlikely that John Grubb would have been interred at St. Martin's in 1708 had he been a Quaker. However, there is no record of John's religious views earlier in life. The Kent was chartered by William Penn and all of its settlers were Quakers or closely associated with Quakers. John could only have learned about the Kent from a Quaker, and could only have been on the Kent if a Quaker vouched for him.
*****************
Ever since 1893, there has been a debate within the Delaware Grubb family concerning its origins. New evidence has been discovered that finally establishes that John Grubb, our immigrant ancestor was christened in Stoke Climsland, Cornwall on August 16, 1652, the son of Henry Grubb Jr and his wife, Wilmot.

The surname Grubb, Grubbe and its variations do not appear in the first census of England, taken in the late eleventh century. It appears that the name was brought to England by twelfth and thirteenth century Danish immigrants and later by fifteenth century Protestant Hussite refugees from northern Germany. The Grubb/Grubbe surname is not common in England, but by the seventeenth century there were Grubb families throughout the United Kingdom. Just as in America, many of these families were probably not related.

In 1662, John Grubb Jr (1625 – 1700), probably the 2nd great grandson of Sir Henry Grubbe, purchased the estate and mansion house at Horsenden, Buckinghamshire, just over the boarder from Hertfordshire. This estate of 1240 acres remained in the family until 1841 when it was sold for 63,000 pounds to the Duke of Buckingham. Members of this branch include a long line of London area solicitors and Clerks of the fishmonger’s company.
*****************
The following information was received from Barbara Dill, 1124 Clark St., San Jose, Ca. 95125, dated Dec 1984.

Frances Vane of Kent married John Grubb, Justice of New Castle Co., Delaware in 1693, and member of the Colonial Assembly of Pennsylvania 1698-1700. They went to New Jersey in 1677 arriving from England on the ship "Kent". They moved to Pennsylvania in 1681 where Frances gave birth to first English male child born in Pennsylvania. They later settled on a plantation called Grubb Homestead and which is ssstill occupied by their descendants. John died in March 1708.

It is assumed that Frances was the granddaughter of Sir Henry Vane the Elder and that he was the first to use the old version of the name rather than Fane. It is also noted that his wife's name was Frances. Prior to the time of Henry the name was not seen in the family, after him it occured several times, in other words it became a family name. This slim evidence seems more convincing when one considers that the name of Vane is not very common. It might also be menntion that John Grubb seems to have been from a family that would have been of the same social class as the Vanes. It is assumed that Frances Vane Grubb was the daughter of either, sir George, Sir Walter, Ralph or possibly one of the other sons of sir Henry the Elder.

In November 1679 a tract of 340 acres of land on Chester Creek, near Upland New Chester, Pennsylvania was conveyed to John Grubb and Richard Buffington. On september 19, 1682, "Stockdales's Plantation" of 800 acres in Brandywine Hundred, New Castle county was surveyed to John Grubb, though a portion of it was in dispute between him and the Proprietary Government for a number of yars, as shown by the correspondence of James Logan, Secretary of the Proprietors. It was located on Nasman's creek and the Delaware River, and came to be known as "Grubb's Manor Lands'. On May 9, 1691, there was surveyed to him by virtue of a warrant dated April 26, 1684, four and one half acres for a tan yar, on which he erected a tannery. At the Court of Chester, Jan 6, 1684, he made a deposition in reference to a matter then pending, and is mentioned as 'about 32 years of age". On June 3, 1698, Alice gilpin conveyed to him 108 acres of land near Grubb's Landing, on the Delaware, and in 1707 John French conveyed tp jo, 175 acres in Brandywine Hundred. In 1703-04 he purchased land at Marcus Hook, Chester Township, chester Co., Pa. where was living at the time of making his will. He died at Marcus Hook March 26, 1708, but as he was a large landowner in New Castle County a copy there fore was filed in the Will's Office at New Castle, Del.

Grubb information is also found in "Historical Southern Families" Vol xx111 1980, by Boddie.
***********************
Fact 1: Buried in Marcus Hook, St. Martin's Churchyard, PA

Fact 2: Religion-Episcopal
*************
1) John's earliest known ancestor was Thomas Grubb, who was born about 1540 in Stoke Climsland, Cornwall. Contrary to numerous published myths, he definitely was not in any way related to the Sir Henry Grubbe of Hertfordshire who married Lady Joan Parr Radcliffe or the Sir Henry Grubbe of Wiltshire who served in Parliament. While we don't know the names of Thomas' parents, (because the parish register only goes back to about 1540), we do know that the Grubb family was in Stoke Climsland by 1329 when Ralph Grubbe was granted the right to hunt in Keyrbullock Park in the parish. This evidence from the Medieval Patent Rolls totally disproves the contentions that the Stoke Climsland Grubb family was descended from the noble Hertfordshire or Wiltshire Grubbe families.

Thomas was a yeoman who had at least three wives - Agnes Jeffrey, a second wife whose name is unknown and Johan Williams. Thomas died in St Dominic (next to Stoke Climsland) in July 1616 leaving a will that named his 11 surviving children.

2) John's grandfather was Henry Grubb "the younger" who was the son of Thomas by his second wife (c1555 - c1605). Baptized in Stoke Climsland on February 18, 1581, he was actually the second son Thomas named Henry - an interesting English custom that causes all sorts of confusion. Henry married Johan H___ (c1590 - March 31, 1635) on August 1, 1615. Possibly her maiden name was Hawkins - a family very closely associated with the Stoke Climsland Grubb clan. On April 29, 1637, Henry remarried to Jane (or Joan) Bidgood. He died during the civil wars and was buried in Stoke Climsland on June 19, 1645.

3) John's father was Henry Grubb Jr (July 1617 - bef. 1675) a tenant farmer and butcher in Stoke Climsland. He was also one of the early Quakers in Cornwall who was jailed for several years beginning in 1663/4. His first wife was Margaret Facie who died two years after their marriage. Then he married Wilmot (maiden name unknown) who was probably born about 1625 and died in 1698. Henry Grubb Jr had eight known children, at least seven with Wilmot. They were: Peter, (who died in 1674/5), Anthony, Robert (who died young), Henry III who also came to America in 1677, John (baptized August 16, 1652), Robert (baptized February 23, 1653/4), Johan (baptized March 30, 1657) and David (baptized January 23, 1658/9). Because he was a Quaker, the date of Henry's death was not recorded. Wilmot's burial "in a field" was recorded because in 1679 the law was changed to require a certification in the parish register that all burials were in a wollen shroud.

5) John and his older brother Henry came to America because his family lost the lease on their land in Stoke Climsland. John apprenticed as a tanner (probably with the Hawkins family) about the time his father was put in jail. By 1676 his father was dead and his mother was living with her oldest surviving son, Anthony. They heard of the West Jersey venture from a letter sent by William Penn and Wilmot apparently realized that Henry and John had no chance of ever becoming established in Stoke Climsland. Interesting, it appears that John had earned enough money to pay his fare on the Kent while Henry agreed to become an indentured servant for three years. Both were Quakers at the time, but John later left the Society (probably about 1680 after a dispute with Robert Wade, then the most prominent Quaker in what later became Pennsylvania)

6) The only thing we know for certain about John's wife is that her name was Frances - no evidence has come to light concerning her maiden name. She was probably born about 1660 and she definitely was not the daughter of Sir Henry Vane "the younger." That is another myth that has been totally disproven. Her death is not recorded, but we know she died before 1721 when her second husband remarried. John and Frances had nine children that lived to adulthood and are named in John's will: Emanuel m Ann Hitchcock, John m Rachael Buckley, Joseph m Sarah Ann Perkins, Charity m Richard Beeson, Phoebe m. Richard Buffington Jr and later Simon Hadley, Samuel m Mary Bellerby, Henry unmarried, Nathaniel m. Ann Moore, and Peter m. Martha Bates and later Hannah Mendenhall. John died in March 1708 (the exact date is unknown) in Marcus Hook, Pennsylvania, then Chester County and today Delaware County.

Delaware Quaker Records: New Castle County

"John Grubb was among those who appear to have come over fr England, as New Jersey colonists, and is supposed to have been a brother to Henry Grubb of Burlington and a son of Henry & Willmet or Willmott Grubb of Stoke Climsland, Cornwall, who suffered persecution with other Quakers in 1663. John Grubb with his wife Frances, soon located on the western side of the Delaware, prior to the arrival of William Penn and became the owner of lands above and below the present circula line of Delaware. He was a tanner as well as farmer, and died in 1708 leaving children Emanuel, John, Charity, Phebe, Joseph, Henry, Nathani??l & Peter, of whom the last was the owner and developer of the Cornwall iron mines and furnaces in Pennsylvania. Frances Grubb, widow, appears to have married Richard Buffington, head of that family in Pennsylvania"--Smedley pp 381-382
See also Bible Records Del. V-7, p 125 "Grubb Burying Ground"
John Grubb signed wedding cert of Alphensus Kirk & Abigail Sharpley 12-23-1792.
"Among the emigrants who accompanied William Penn on this first voyage, embarking from Deal and occupying six weeks in the passage, was a young man of twenty-two years of age by the name of John Grubb, a sawyer by trade, who in the following spring, March 24, 1683 was married in Burlington(?) to Mary Perkins, dt of William & Mary, before mentioned. He purchased real estate in the town of Chichester on Grubb, alias New Street, in Feb. 1705/6, still holding his Brandywine Hundred property--The Daily News Standard, (???)town, PA, July 4, 1896, p 10
John Grubb is here confused with his brother Henry Grubb who married Mary Perkins. Cope, Gilbert--The Grubb Family of Pennsylvania & Del.

John Henry Grubb
John was a tanner by trade, who with William Penn, Richard Buffington and others, on 03 March 1676, signed the Plan of Government for the Province of West Jersey. He and Buffington came to America in 1677 on "The Kent". He was born in Cornwall Co., ENG, but may have lived in Wiltshire before sailing to America where he became a prominent pioneer as a legislator, magistrate, farmer and leather manufacturer. He built the first leather works in PA. His parents were Quakers, but he seemed to be Episcopalian, although his daughter Charity and her husband Richard Beeson were both prominent Quaker Ministers. He is buried in St. Martin's Churchyard in Marcus Hook, PA. He settled first at Upland, now Chester, PA. The name of the Homestead at Brandywine Hundred, in New Castle Co., PA (now) DE was "Stockdeals".

Notes for John Grubb: John Grubb with William Penn, Richard Buffington, and others, 3 Mar 1676, signed the Plan of Government for the Province of West Jersey and came to America in 1677 where he became a prominent pioneer as a legislator, magistrate, farmer, and leather manufacturer. He is buried in St. Martin Churchyard in Marcus Hook, PA. Frances Vane Grubb then married her husband's friend, Richard Buffington.

The Grubb family was first represented in John Grubb. There is still in existence a letter written to his uncle by King Charles I, in Nov. 1642, with the Royal Seal appended, asking for a loan "To aid the King in defending the Realm and the Church against his enemies." This letter was addressed to "Our truly and well-beloved John Grubb, Esq." Lord John Grubb's family are interred in the old manor churchyard on his estate in England, and on it were many Memorial Tablets bearing epitaphs in Latin and having the family Arms and Crest. This family is descended from people who distinguished themselves as early as the tenth century.

John Grubb, the first of the family on these shores, was a son of John and helen Grubb. At the age of 25 years, he came to America to mend his fortunes, which had been impaired by the support he gave to the Royal Cause. Sailing from London in the ship "KENT" in 1677, he arrived at Burlington, West Jersey, and received 340 acres of land on Chester Creek. As early as 1682, Grubb's Landing, Brandywine Hundred, DE was known to fame. John Grubb became possessor of a tract of land 600 acres in extent as made one of the Colonial Justices in 1693 and was twice elected to the colonial assembly.

The historian's say of him, "He came from that stock of men second to none on the face of the earth--The English Country Gentleman." At Grubb's Landing, he erected a tannery, and was the first manufacturer of leather in Penn's Province. In 1703, he left Grubb's Landing and located in Marcus Hook, PA where he invested heavily in land. he was an extensive land owner in both PA and DE. Like his ancestors, he was a devout supporter of the Church of England. The John Grubb (1652 - 1708) who came to West Jersey on the Kent in 1677 and settled in Brandywine Hundred, New Castle County, Delaware

From WFT: John Grubb, with his wife Frances, was a resident of Upland as early as 1679, but does not appear to have been settled there as early as 1677. In 1679, jointly with Richard Buffington, he purchased 300 acres of land on the southwest side of Chester Creek above Cheater, and may have resided there some time. His occupation was that of a tanner. His children were Emanuel, John, Joseph, Henry, Samuel, Nataniel, Peter, Charity, and Phebe, all of whom were living at the time of his death in 1708. His daughter Chariety was married to Richard Beeson prior to his death. He does not appear to have been a Quaker, probably was an Episcopalian. His age was about 60 years.

Samuel Grubb settled in East Bradford on the farm now of William Gibbons. Nataniel married Ann Moore and settled in Willistown. He was a member of Assembly, trustte of the loan office, etc. Peter Grubb went to what is now Lebanon County, where he was a prominet ironmaster. Phebe married Richard Buffington Jr., and Simon Hadly.

John Henry Grubb and Frances Vane
Greg Vaut: This is in response to information posted on Ancestry as to the wife of Richard BUFFINGTON and John GRUBB.
     Frances, the wife of John GRUBB and Richard BUFFINGTON, was not Frances VANE, the daughter of Sir Henry VANE.
     "London Marriage Licences for Kent" - Edward Kekewitch of Minhinnet, Co. Cornwall, gent. bachelor, 26, and Frances Vane, spinster, 23, daughter of Frances Vane of Fairland Co Kent, widow who consents - at St. Saviour, St. Olave, or St. George in Southwark co Surrey, 6 Oct 1664.
     "Burials in Shipborne parish, Kent Co, England" - Frances Kewkewich, daughter of Sir Henry Vane - June 4, 1683.
     Frances (Vane) Kewkewich was born abt 1641 (23 in 1664). She died in England after John GRUBB and his wife, Frances, had removed to PA. Their youngest child was born 1704, many years after the death of Frances VANE.
     In the late 1800s a GRUBB descendant engaged a London firm to research his family. Thinking all Americans wanted to descend from nobility, Frances VANE, daughter of Sir Henry VANE, was erroneously named as the wife of John GRUBB.
     lease help me correct this information and seek the true identify of Frances.P

     Frances Vane
From John Grubb booklet: "In his 1893 work, Gilbert Cope provides no information about John Grubb's wife other than that her name was Frances. In December of that year, Judge Ignatius Grubb wrote that her maiden name was Vane, and that she was the daughter of Sir Henry Vane the Younger (1613 - 1662) . Sir Henry Vane was a Puritan who immigrated to Boston and became the second governor of Massachusetts . After serving his term, he went back to England to participate in the Civil War and became one of the main spokespersons for Cromwell. Sir Henry Vane was executed after the restoration . The story is that Frances Vane was born in
1642, first married Edward Kewkewich of Minhincot, Cornwall and became a Quaker. After Edward's death, she married John Grubb in Cornwall about 1675 and came to America with John. Supposedly, her money enabled John to purchase land upon their arrival . This story is pure nonsense . In fact, the daughter of Sir Henry Vane was buried in Shipborne parish, Kent County, England on June 4, 1683 . Further, if John's wife was the daughter of Sir Henry Vane, she would have had three children after her 50th birthday! Based on her children's birth dates, Frances Grubb was probably born about 1660 . A Frances Vane was born that year in Randolph County, Virginia . Interestingly, a John Vane, also born in Randolph County moved to Ocean Township, New Jersey where he died in 1710 . Also the same year, a Samuel Vane was named in the will of Ann Hartup of New Castle County, Delaware . While none of this evidence is conclusive, it was quite common for Quakers in the older colonies to move to the Delaware Valley after Penn established his colony there ."2

Frances Vane
[MargrafJM.FTW] Believed to have come to America in 1677. After her first marriage to Edward Kewkewich of Minhincot, Cornwall withwhom she had come to Cornwall, she became a Quakeress. It was her money that enabled her second husband, John Grubb, to purchase land in America. Source 'A Geneology of The Beeson-Beason Family in America' by Mickey Elliott.

Frances Vane and John Henry Grubb
Greg Vaut: This is in response to information posted on Ancestry as to the wife of Richard BUFFINGTON and John GRUBB.
     Frances, the wife of John GRUBB and Richard BUFFINGTON, was not Frances VANE, the daughter of Sir Henry VANE.
     "London Marriage Licences for Kent" - Edward Kekewitch of Minhinnet, Co. Cornwall, gent. bachelor, 26, and Frances Vane, spinster, 23, daughter of Frances Vane of Fairland Co Kent, widow who consents - at St. Saviour, St. Olave, or St. George in Southwark co Surrey, 6 Oct 1664.
     "Burials in Shipborne parish, Kent Co, England" - Frances Kewkewich, daughter of Sir Henry Vane - June 4, 1683.
     Frances (Vane) Kewkewich was born abt 1641 (23 in 1664). She died in England after John GRUBB and his wife, Frances, had removed to PA. Their youngest child was born 1704, many years after the death of Frances VANE.
     In the late 1800s a GRUBB descendant engaged a London firm to research his family. Thinking all Americans wanted to descend from nobility, Frances VANE, daughter of Sir Henry VANE, was erroneously named as the wife of John GRUBB.
     lease help me correct this information and seek the true identify of Frances.P
     Many thanks, Nancy W. Wood, GRUBB and BUFFINGTON descendant.5
