  • Notes 
    • John, a prosperous Newtown farmer, is said to have become a Quaker like his older brother, Samuel. However, there is no record that he had any brushes with the law. It is reported that in 1673, John and Samuel refused to take an oath of allegence but promised fealty to the Dutch. John's death record is at the Newtown (now Elmhurst) Presbyterian Church. This may indicate he had left the Society of Friends in his later years.
