Notes

  • Immigration*: 1718; Pennsylvania
  • Note*: Son of Paul Pennington & Anne Simpson, a shoemaker at time of his marriage. Members of Swarthmore Meeting. Children born at Sunbreak, a hamlet in Aldingham parish. William and Margaret went to America at ages 61 & 51. Son Daniel immigrated earlier, in 1713, age 19. At the Middletown Monthly Meeting of 7th month 1718 William Pennington presented a certificate for himself and his wife from Swarthmore Meeting. His son Paul also presented a certificate, at the next meeting. In 1722 certificates were requested for William and his son Paul to Abington meeting. William and Margaret's deaths are not recorded in meeting records, nor have wills or administrations been found.1
  • Note: Clarence V. Roberts notes that the Lancashire Friends records show the birth 1705-7-30 of Margret Penington, dau. of William and Mary, of Sunbrick. Roberts considers it possible that William's wife Margaret (Hall), had died and William had remarried before leaving England, and further, that this child is the Margaret Pennington who married Daniel Burges at Falls Meeting 2-11-1732.2
