I have a hand-written history of Thomas Iredell:
Thomas Iredell emigrated from the county of Cumberland, England, about the year 1700. His certificate was received at a monthly meeting of Friends held in Philadelphia, 8th month 29, 1708. It was issued by the Â“monthly meeting held at Paidsaybragg in CumberlandÂ”, England and was dated 6th month 27, 1700.
I) Thomas Iredell married Rebecca Williams at Friends meeting, Philadelphia, 9th day of 3rd month, 1705, of their children I have able to gather the following :
II) Mary Iredell married Thomas Good 13-2-1730 (day-month-year)
Rebecca Iredell married Issac Cleaver 23-2-1787
Abraham Iredell married Sarah Coffin 1740
Hannah Iredell married Benjamin Fell 29-2-1745
Robert Iredell married Hannah Lukens 22-2-1745
Rachel Iredell married Abraham Lukens 25(23?)-1-1745
Sarah Iredell married Joseph Wilson 1752
These are not to be presumed as given in the order of their birth. Excepting my grandfather I have not the date of birth of any of them. All were married at FriendsÂ’ meeting at Horsham, except Abraham, who was married at Haddonfield, N.J. and Sarah who married at Everham, N.J. Early in the last century Thomas Iredell purchased of Samuel Carpenter two-hundred acress of land, on which, in 1720, he erected a substantial two story stone dwelling, in which, in 1848, Nathan Hatt died, having, I think, lived there his life time. There could have been no public road there at the time it was built, for on March 25 (23?), 1722, it was ordered that RobÂ’t Flitcher, Richard Carver, Thomas Iredell, John Barnes, and Ellis Davis, or any four of them, Â“Do make out a convenient highway, from the GovernorÂ’s House to the meeting house and thence to Round meadow run (now Willow Grove).Â”
I) Robert Iredell, born 4th, 1st mo. 1721, died 1799.
married 29th, 2nd mo. 1745, Hannah Lukens, born 21st of 8th mo. 1727, died 1812. Children of Robert and Hannh Iredell (date of marriage)
