  • Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHY: !Ellis and Jane Jones came to America from either Flint, or Denbigh, Wales, in the ship Submission, Sept., 1682. From the Log of the Submission:
      "Ellis Jones, age 45, Jane Jones, age 40,
      Barbara Jones, age 13, Mary Jones, age 12,
      Dorothy Jones, age 10, Isaac Jones, age 4 mos."
      The "Pennsylvania Historical Magazine", in a list of names of "Important Colonists, who came in the Submission," mentions Ellis Jones. He was a resident of Bucks County, 1684, but did not remain there long, and in the Welsh Trach Purchases his name appears as having purchased one hundred acres in Nantonell Parish, Radnor. Barbara Jones married Daniel Pegge, of "Pegge's Run"; Mary Jones married her cousin Isaac Jones, and Dorothy Jones married Richard Cantrill.

      BIOGRAPHY: Ellis Jones and his family were Quakers and as Richard Cantrill belonged to the Church of England, Richard and Dorothy were married, to use a Quaker term, "Out of Meeting."
