In regards to: Doughty's

Dear Ron and Jeff,

I have some information I want to pass along and ask for your input. Could this be our Doughty’s? I have included a few things that might or might not be helpful. The list is in Alphabetic order only. Most have references to Doughty's in some form. I believe there are a lot of connections between these people and NJ, PA, NY Doughty's. Just wanted to see if you guys come to some of the same conclusions. Don’t you think this makes sense? I’ve typed the info just as it appears. I’m so excited about this. This is not even 1/100 of the information available. You guys have got to get these books. I have not been able to find it on line but if you do let me know cause I’m tired of typing. “Barbados Records Wills and Administrations Volume 1, 2 & 3 1639-1750 Compiled and Edited by Joanne McRee Sanders.”

Samuel Carpenter, born in Surry, England, who came to the province from the island of Barbadoes, in 1683, and now a wealthy shipping merchant of Philadelphia.

DEED POLL: 12 Sept 1707. SAMUEL CARPENTER, city Phila., merchant, and JAMES LOGAN, said city, gentleman., attornies (etc) to JOHN HUGHES county Chester, yeoman.
WILLIAM PENN, Esq., by Lease and Release date 22 Oct ????, granted to his daughter, LAETITIA PENN, 5000 acres of land, which by warrant were laid out in one tract "in or about" 1683, on west side of river Skuylkill, and by re-survey in 1701 were found to contain 7800 acres. By a mistake of the
Surveyor General "divers parsells and quantities of possession of other purchasers and renters many years before and under the bounds and limits of the whole." (sentence is unfinished). Said tract was confirmed by letters patent, intermarried with WILLIAM AUBREY of London, merchant, and said WILLIAM and LAETITIA AUBRY, by Lease and Release, 3/4 May 1703 (Book A.
vol. 1, pp. 165-66) granted to DANIEL WHARLEY, SAMUEL WALDENFIELD and HENRY GOLDNEY said 5000 acres of land, who on 24 Sep 1703 (Book A vol. 1. p. 268)

Chester, yeoman; And whereas, upon re-survey, same was found to be situate as follows: adjoins widow YOCUM, GUNNER RAMBOE, and WILLIAM DAVID; Contains 257 acres.
And whereas said tract, being wrongfully included in above-mentioned patent and granted thereupon to said LAETITIA PENN, necessity and justice require that the mistake be rectified according to the Proprietary's express orders
at his last departure, etc; therefore said attornies grant to said JOHN HUGHES said 257 acres, being part of said 7800 acres granted to said LAETITIA PENN. Wits: EDWARD SHIPPEN, SAMUEL CART.

After the restoration of King Charles II, the Quakers had a strong following, especially in the Upper parish. William Edmundson, a friend of George Fox, visited this neighborhood in 1671, and met General Richard Bennett, "who," he said, "received the truth and died in the same, leaving two friends his executors." The able lawyer and preacher, Thomas Story, of Philadelphia, came in 1699 and 1705, and held many "open and comfortable meetings" in this and other parts of Virginia, viz., at Edward Thomas' house on Queen Creek, York county; at Daniel Akehurst's and Thomas Cary's, on Warwick river; at Robert Perkins', at Martin's Hundred; at John Bates', at Skimeno, York county, and at Chuckatuck, where he met with "his ancient friend,' Elizabeth Webb, of Gloucestershire, England, and John Copeland, who at his request showed him his mutilated right ear, being "one of the first of those who had their ears cut by the Presbyterians, or Independents, of New England."(1) There was a yearly meeting at "Levy Neck" (still known by that name), and the chief Quakers were Dr. John Grove, William Bressy, and Thomas Jordan.
Major Taberer left the estate to his grandson, Joseph Copeland, probably a relative of John Copeland visited by Thomas Story. "Warrascoyack River" was changed to "New Town Haven Creek," thence to "Pagan Creek," "Pagan" being originally the name of a point of land.

By 1725, Benjamin DOUGHTY, JR, his wife Abigail and family were living in Burlington County, New Jersey ~ On 20 MAR 1738/39, Benjamin DOUGHTY was appointed guardian of "A" SAMUEL STOCKTON [possibly JR, and son of Samuel STOCKTON, SR and Amy DOUGHTY, deceased.]

Amy DOUGHTY, [d: 1725], and Samuel STOCKTON, SR, [d: 1739], had two children before she died: {1} Samuel, b: 1724 ~ d: 1767, probably unmarried as his sister administered his estate. {2} Amy STOCKTON, b: 1725 ~ d: 1777, unmarried.

Above, I wrote "A" Samuel STOCKTON, because I'm not really sure Benjamin DOUGHTY was made guardian of Amy's son, Samuel; unless at the age of about 14 or 15 he didn't get along with Rachel STOUT, [d: 1771], second spouse of Samuel STOCKTON, SR. [They had six children.] So I need help here as I haven't read the guardianship papers... but, something just doesn't quite add up, but can't find another Samuel to fit... then, another thought, perhaps the guardianship was for educational purposes?
All very interesting....
