Notes

  • Note*: The Darby Monthly Meeting records include a certificate of removal issued; abstract: "Elizabeth Pearson, widow, granted a certificate to Gwynedd Monthly Meeting, Montgomery Co., recorded 2nd da, 7th mo, 1741."
    And, in the Gwynedd Meeting Minutes: "10-29-1741 Elizabeth Pearson produced a certificate from Darby."
    There is the unproven possibility that Benjamin Pearson had died and that this is his widow.2
  • Note: See Samuel Parr in this database, and particularly the abstract of his January 1750/51 will. He does make a significant bequest of £100 to Elizabeth Parr's son William Pearson. But the will does not identify William as a grandson or other relation, whereas brothers, nephews and nieces are identified as such. This compiler cannot conclude that Samuel Parr was the father of Elizabeth Parr, wife of Benjamin Pearson.
