    Notes 
    • Charles came over aboard William Penn's flagship, the "Welcome" which sailed from Dorsetshire Nov 1, 1682 landed in New Jersey.  In 1721 he was elected one of the first Justices of the Peace in Hunterdon County, New Jersey.  Among the passengers were William Penn, proprietor of the colony of Pennsylvania and George Fox, founder of the Quakers.  According to tradition, his brothers John and Gaviel were with him but died soon after in a small pox epidemic.  Charles was a Quaker and overseer of a Quaker colony in New Jersey under George Fox and William Penn.  Charles' Bible is in the possession of his descendants and contains the birth dates of his children.  Married 1697, Mary (perhaps Chadwick, born Virginia, daughter of John Chadwick and Elizabeth Chadwick. No proof on this parentage.)
      Departed from Dorcetshire England in 1682 with two brothers, Gariel and John.  Sailed on the ship "Welcome".  A Wm. Penn Flagship, (Over 20 ships total) landed at Newcastle, NJ. During the sailing, Smallpox killed about 1/3 of the crew and passengers, including, perhaps, his brothers.
