Generation No. 1
1. WILLIAM JOHN (JOHN AP EVAN, IEVAN KNOWN AS EVAN ROBERT LEWIS) was born about 1660 in Llanvachreth, Merionethshire, Wales, and died Bef. November 01, 1712 in Of Gwynedd twp., Philadelphia (now Montgomery) Co. PA. He married November 08, 1681 (Llanfor parish records) JANE HUGH, daughter of HUGH CADWALADER and GWEN WILLIAMS. She was born 1651 in Yspytty, Evan, Denbighshire, Wales, and died Abt. 1740 in Of Gwynedd twp., Philadelphia (now Montgomery) Co. PA.
H. M. Jenkins (1897) p. 449: His parentage is attributed to John ap Evan of Penmaen son of Evan Robert Lewis of Fron Goch Wales.
JQ: This is undoubtedly correct. His uncle Cadwalader ab Evan of Coed y Foel, Llanfor in his will dated Dec. 1688 and proved - left a legacy to his brother John Evan, his nephew - William John Evan (or William John ) - £5 . Upon condition that his father in law Hugh Cadwaladr shall also give him £5 otherwise the money to be distributed by executors. (Elfed Owen)
His mother was named Margaret and she was a Quaker, fined from time to time in Wales for attending Quaker meetings. William John was baptized at Llanfor 10 August 1673, he being then several years old. The ceremony had evidently been delayed owing to the disagreement of his parents on the question of religion. - T.A. Glenn (Welsh Founders of Pennsylvania, p. 104). He had some older half siblings who came to Pennsylvania named Griffith John (of Merion, emigrated 1690), Robert John (of Abington), and Margaret John wife of David Evans (she died on the ship Robert and Elizabeth on the voyage to Pennsylvania in 1698).
Along with Thomas ap Evan, he came to Pennsylvania in 1697 to pick out new land for Welsh settlers and chose the area of present Lower and Upper Gwynedd and Montgomery townships in present Montgomery Co. PA (then Philadelphia Co.). The deciding factors of their selection are presumed to have been, fertility of the land, price and availability of a large undivided tract (they were the vanguard of the larger group of Welsh settlers that arrived the next year). John and Evan received title for the land from Robert Turner (who had acquired it from John Gee and others) in 1698. When the other settlers came over, John and Evan gave them deeds for the subsections (1699). He retained title for about 1900 acres (actually 2866 by resurvey in 1702) in the upper end of today's Upper Gwynedd township. Today's West Point Pike/Church Rd. is approximately the boundary of his land (the other boundaries are the township lines). The adjacent tract to today's Swedesford Rd. was owned by Thomas Evans. The area to the northwest in Towamencin twp. would have been occupied by Edward Morgan. He also had a tract of 322 acres in today's Lower Gwynedd township adjacent to Whitpain township between the land owned by Edward Foulke and John Hugh (his brother-in-laws).
At the time of settlement, Gwynedd township was wooded upland (hardwood forest) with few Indians and a few neighbors in today's Horsham and Upper Dublin townships. The Whitpain family had also settled in neighboring Whitpain township in 1685. The main company of immigrants sailed from Liverpool on 18 Apr 1698 on the ship 'Robert and Elizabeth'. Forty five died on the voyage to Pennsylvania from dysentery. By November they had cleared land and built homes in Gwynedd.
Howard Jenkins (Historical Collections of Gwynedd):
"Some idea of the agricultural methods of the early settlers may be gathered from the inventories of personal property attached to their wills. In 1712, William John's inventory showed his grain crops to be wheat, rye, and oats; he also had hay; and these were "in the barn," showing that he, at least, had by that time built a barn. He had 21 cattle of all sorts, 5 of the horse kind, in addition to "1 old mare with her breed in the woods." He had "7 stock of bees," showing attention already given to them, and Jenkin Jenkin's inventory, 1745, includes 18 hives of bees. Owen Evans, 1723, also had bees, and his inventory includes "6 acres of new land fallow for barley."
Howard Jenkins, Chapter 8:
"We may study with interest, in this connection, the inventory of the household goods of William John, of Gwynedd, who died in 1712, in the early years of the settlement. He was, judging by the large tract which he bought, --nearly three times the size of any other, --a rich man according to the circumstances of the times. The inventory in the house includes the following articles: 1 Rugg, 4 new blankets, 7 new blanketts and one old Double coverlid, 2 ditto, 1 ditto, 2 single ditto, 3 ditto, 1 double ditto, 3 tow double coverlids, 7 cushin cases, 1 side of curtains, 7 pairs sheets, 5 table cloths, 10 napkins, 4 bolster cases and 2 pillow cases, 8 chairs, 2 tables, 2 Dutch wheels, and 2 other spinning wheels, 6 lbs. Of hatcheled flax, 6 of flaxen yarn, 37 of course tow yarn, 4 of woolen yarn, 28 of wool, 40 yards of linen, 2 buck-skins (appraised at 7s. 6d); 55 lbs. Of hemp, chafing dish, brass pans, wooden ware, pewter, 3 meal sives, earthen ware."
from Howard Jenkins, Chapter 28:
"In Mr. Thomas A Glenn's recently issued (1896) volume, "Merion in the Welsh Tract," the descent of some of the Welsh families settling in Gwynedd is more definitely traced. William John, it appears, was the first cousin of the four Evans brothers, Thomas, Robert, Owen, and Cadwalader. They were all grandchildren of Evan Robert Lewis of Fron Goch -- which place is in Merionethshire, about three miles from Bala, and not, as suggested in Denbighshire. Our William John was the son of John ap Evan, the eldest son of Evan Robert Lewis, and the Evans brothers were sons of Evan ap Evan, the youngest son."

Marriage at Llanfor church on 8 November 1681 beween William John and Jane Hugh
1. Baptism on 30 January 1686 of John s/o William John of Penmaen
2. Baptism on 25 September 1687 of Gainor d/o William John of Penmaen
3. Baptism on 13 October 1689 of Thomas s/o Will John of Llan
4. Baptism on 2 November 1690 of John s/o William John of Penmaen .
5. Baptism on 15 December 1694 of Katherine d/o William John of Nantlleidiog
Note : Penmaen is where William John's father, John ap Evan made his will in 1696. Nantlleidiog is the adjacent township to Penmaen.
Elfed Owen and I do not think that entry 3 is a son of this William John.
All the others fit in with Thomas Allen Glenn's information (Welsh Founders of Pennsylvania) except there are two Johns
There is a burial on 29 April 1695 of a John Will John of Penmaen - sometimes two children in a family were given the same name, while on the other hand this may have no connection.
There are no Welsh parish records for daughters Ellin or Jane.

Description of the home of William John (footnote, page 67, Jenkins' Historical Collections of Gwynedd): "The date (1712) is cut in a stone near the peak of the western gable, and also in a stone close to the south door-way. The building is a two-story house with a wing kitchen. It has wide deep chimney-places, and one upper window, in which the ancient sash have been allowed to remain, is filled with little panes of glass, six inches by two. There is some appearance that the wing kitchen was built earlier than the main dwelling, and tradition says that a log cabin, still earlier in date, stood a little distance to the southward, by a spring. A depression in the ground at this place is supposed to be the site of the cabin, which was, no doubt, the original home of William John and his family."
Children of WILLIAM JOHN and JANE HUGH are:
i. JOHN JONES, b. about 1690 Penmaen, Merioneth, Wales; d. April 1743, Of Gwynedd twp., Philadelphia (now Montgomery) Co. PA; Property: 1712, 1400 Acres in father's will in Gwynedd twp. He married Margaret Atkinson.
Not to be confused with John Jones, son of Robert Jones (d. 1732) amongst others.
He is on the 1734, Philadelphia Co. tax list for Gwynedd twp, listed as John Jones, "Penman" [Penmaen, the place of his birth]. The list for Jones in Gwynedd in 1734 looks like this:
John Jones, penman
John Jones, Robert's son [Gwynedd records show him born 5th mo. 8th, 1707]
John Jones, weaver
Hugh Jones, tanner
In the Gwynedd Monthly Meeting [MM] records there are the following entries for John Jones in this time period (only some of these apply to him):
10-1. 1716-3-29. John Jones married out of unity and offered an account [this is probably him].
16-1, 1718-1-25. John Jones granted a certificate to Chester MM to marry Margaret Hillbour [Hillborn][this is probably him].
96-1. 1726-12-28. John Jones received on certificate from Merion MM [this is not him].
104-1. 1727-8-31. Jno Jones married contrary to discipline, offered an account [not him].
159-1. 1733-4-7. John Jones, son of Robert of Philadlephia Co., PA married Gainor Humphreys at Gwynedd Meeting House [not him].
172-1. 1733-11-29. John Jones disowned for disunity [could be any of four men, including him].
John Jones had a first, unknown wife. John Jones married, second, Margaret Hillborn (widow, nee Atkinson) under the care of Chester MM. He is not the John Jones who dies in Worcester twp and leaves a will (G 231), proved 1748 (with wife Elizabeth). John Jones, with wife Margaret, has one known child - William Jones who married Jane Evans and perhaps also Sarah Foulke.
John Jones was left 1400 acres of land (the Upper Gwynedd tract) in his father's will, along with the dwelling place (life right of one-half being reserved to the widow.)
An article was published detailing the genealogy of Margaret (Atkinson) Hillborn Jones:
From, The Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, Vol XXXI, p. 166, "Atkinson Families of Bucks County, Pennsylvania" by Oliver Hough
She was b. 5mo., 7, 1691 in Lancashire, England
"She accompanied her parents to Pennsylvania [in 1699], living there with her mother, first at "Bellmont" in Bensalem Township, Bucks County, and afterwards in Newtown, until her marriage. She and her sister Isabel were the final surviving co-heiresses to their father's estate; their deed of confirmation of the sale of the 500 acres, 73 perches to the Gilbert heirs, on Nov. 22, 1715, has been mentioned above.
She married first, 9 mo. 8, 1711, at the house of Stephen Twining, in Newtown Township, Samuel Hillborn, son of Thomas and Elizabeth Hillborn, of Newtown Township. They had only on child, a son, Samuel Hillborn (born 6 mo. 13, 1714) who married in 1736, Abigail Twining, daughter of Stephen and Margaret (Mitchell) Twining, of Newtown Township, and granddaughter of Stephen Twining, at whose house her husband's parents were married. Samuel hillborn, Sr. died in 1714 and was buried 10mo. 15. The death of Margaret Hillborn's husband about this time and the fact that her sister in law, Elizabeth Hillborn, had married another Aston settler, Abraham Darlinton, no doubt induced her to follow her sister Isabel to Chester County. In the fall of 1717 Margaret Hillborn, Isabel Carter and Elizabeth Darlington applied for certificates of membership from Middletown Meeting. A committee of the meeting was appointed assist Margaret in settling her affairs." (Jenkins)
Margaret (Atkinson) Hillborn, then of Aston Township, Chester (now Delaware) County, married second, 2 mo. 10, 1719, at Gwynedd Meeting House, John Jones, a widower, of Gwynedd Township, Philadelphia (now Montgomery) County [Register of Chester MM, no record of the marriage at Gwynedd]. At the Gwynedd Monthly Meeting held 12 mo. 25, 1717, [Feb. 25, 1717/8], John Jones requested a certificate to Chester Monthly Meeting in order to marry Margaret Hillborn; this was signed for him 1 mo. [March] 25, 1718. At the women's meeting held 4 mo. 24, 1718, "Margaret Jones having Produced a Certificate from Province Monthly Meeting relating to her Life and conversation which was Read att this Meeting approved of and order to be recorded." [Minutes of Gwynedd Mo. Meeting]
In addition, Margaret Jones is listed in Appendix 2, page 327, of "Daughters of Light" by Rebecca Larson as a Quaker minister (in addition this source says she m. 1. ? Hillborn, 2. John Jones, and says she died 1743). She is mentioned frequently in the Gwynedd MM Records (but not I think after February (12 mo.) 1738/9):
2-1. 1718-4-24. Margaret Jones received on certificate from Province MM [Chester Co. - JQ]
1718, 24th 5 mo. - Gainor Jones, Margaret Jones, Mary Pugh & Ruth Evans are appointed to attend the Service of the next Quarterly Meeting.

1721, 2nd mo. Margaret Jones & Elizabeth Evans are appointed to attend the next Quarterly Meeting att Philadelphia

1730, 8 mo. 27: "This Meeting appoints Margaret Jones and Eliza Morgan to attend the Quarterly Meeting att Philadelphia."
1732, 6mo., 26. "Margaret Jones and Alice Griffith are appointed to make Necessary Inquire into the Life and Conversation and Clearness of Hannah Siddon in order to get a few lines to our frds in Philadelphia."
1734, 2mo. 30. "Margaret Jones and Phebe Pugh are appointed to attend the next Quarterly Meeting att Philadelphia."
1737, 5 mo. 26. "Mary Evans, Margaret Jones, Mary Robert, Ann Foulk are appointed to attend the service of the Next Quarterly Meeting and to report that Love and Unity is Maintained amongst us etc."

"Hannah Warmans going out in marriage contrary to the Discipline of truth and good order Established among frds some years past now frd in tenderness appoints Margaret Jones, Rachel Potts to give her a visitt as these endeavours to bring her to a due sence of her erorr and mistep."
1738, 5 mo., 25. "Ellin Evans, Margaret Jones, Elizabeth Morgan, Gwen Foulk, Rachel Potts and Ellin Hugh are appointed to attend the Quarterly Meeting in Philadelphia."
1738, 10 mo., 26. "Edward Morris and Ellin Griffith declared their intention of Marriage with each other the first time - Gainor Jones and Margaret Jones are appointed to inspect into her Life and Conversation and bring report to the Next Meeting."
1738, 12 mo., 28. "Edward Morris and Ellin Griffith declared their intention of marriage with each other the second time - Gainor Jones, Margaret Jones are desired to attend the marriage and bring their report to the next Meeting." also from the same day, "Margaret Jones and Grace Thomas are desired to speak to Alexander Foremans wife who desired to joyn to friends and bring report to Next Meeting as they find things with her."
John Jones had a son, either by his unnamed first wife, but probably by Margaret, named William Jones. From the will of his grandmother, Jane Jones, we know that William Jones had a wife name Jane. It is possible that this is the William Jones who married Sarah Foulke as well, as that marriage occured after the death of William's wife Jane in 1745. If so, the following Gwynedd Records pertain to William Jones, son of Jones Jones:
Gwynedd MM, 1744-6-28. William Jones and Jane Evans reported married.
Gwynedd MM, page 44-1. Jane, wife of William Jones (and daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Evans) died 5-4-1745.
Gwynedd MM, 1748-3-?. William Jones and Sarah Foulke should have been reported married but minutes for 3rd month are missing.
Gwynedd MM, 46-1. Margaret Jones, daughter of William and Sarah b. 5-28-1749.
Gwynedd MM, 227-2. 1758-8-28. William Jones and wife Sarah and children granted certificate to New Garden MM (London Grove crossed out in pencil)

3. iii. MARGARET JONES, b. Abt. 1680; d. 1767.
iv. GAINOR JONES, m. ABRAHAM MUSGRAVE, November 04, 1714, Gwynedd Meeting, Philadelphia (now Montgomery) Co., PA; b. Abt. 1688; d. January 18, 1714/15, Haverford, Chester (now Delaware) Co., PA.
The marriage is in the Radnor (then called Haverford) MM records: Abraham Musgrave, s/o Thomas dec'd of Halifax, Yorkshire, England m. Gainor Jones d/o William, dec'd of Gwynedd, at Gwynedd mh 9th mo 4, 1714. Wit: William Musgrave, Jon. Cockshaw, Anna Jones and many more.
Att our monthly meeting held att Gwynedd the 31th of the 1 mo 1719 Gwen David and Elizabeth Morgan are appointed to speak with Gainor Musgrave concerning her keeping company with one in order for marriage against her relation and frds advice
Att our monthly meeting held att Gwynedd the 28 of the 2 month 1719 The frds appointed last meeting to speak with Gainor Musgrave have no satisfactory account. Frds still continue their care and appoint Elizabeth Richardson and Sarah Daws Concerning the foregoing matter
This is the last entry for Gainor (Jones) Musgrave in the Gwynedd women's minutes I think, and she is not in her mother's 1741 will.
Notes for ABRAHAM MUSGRAVE: from the Musgrave Manor web site (by Gilbert Musgrave):
"Abraham Musgrave, 11 o. (Jan.) 18, 1714-15. 9, 4, 1714. Abraham Musgrave, son of Thomas, late of Halifax, in Yorkshire, Great Britain, yeoman, dec'd; and Gainor Jones, dau. of William, late of Gwynnedd, dec'd, at Gwynnedd Meeting House. Wit: William Musgrave, Jon. Cockshaw, and Anna Jones. (I believe the name "John Christian" is due to an error in Copying. I think it should be " Jon. or Jonathan Cockshaw," who was an uncle of Abraham Musgrave.) Correct. * (* In the list of witnesses another name had obviously been erased and the name of Jon. Cockshaw entered. Following the word 'correct', the following was scratched out apparently by the author "The Abraham Musgrave who died 11 Mo. 18, 1714-15 is not the one who married 9, 4, 1714. He was witness to the marriage of Wm. Musgrave and Barbara Bevan, 10, 28, 1721. Don't know." (JQ - Gainer is an administrator of the will of the Abraham who dies 1714/5, which indicates that the one who marries in 1714 is same as the one who dies 2 months later.)
Letters of Administration on the estate of Abraham Musgrave of Haverford were granted 11 Mo. (Jan) 27, 1714. Administrators, Gainor Musgrave, William Lewis. Securities, Jonathan Cockshow, David Llewellyn. See Administrator's Docket, West Chester Pa. 1, p. 34. (there is more in the above Musgrave Manor link, including sources, and that page may have been updated since the quote was obtained.)
Gainor was willed, along with her sisters Ellin and Catherine a one third share of William John's lower tract (in today's Lower Gwynedd township).
There is a brief biography of Abraham Musgrave (husband of Gainor Jones) and his family in The Incompleted Burial Records of Merion (PA) Meeting Grave-yard by Margaret B. Harvey, A.M.(Elizabeth Hanebury transcriber) which appears to be the source of the quote above.
There is some debate over the parents of the Abraham Musgrave who marries (1) Mary and (2) Esther Lewis and leaves a Chester County will of April 25, 1785 from Darby twp. (proved January 29, 1787.) Some make him the son of this Abraham and Gainor (John) Musgrave while others have him the son of John and Mary Musgrave who names a son Abraham in his will proved 25 Oct 1758 in Sadsbury, Lancaster County, Pennsylvania (from whence he had removed from Chester County). This Abraham (Darby twp.) had numerous children and descendants.
4. v. CATHERINE JONES, b. July-10-1699, Gwynedd twp, PA. d. Abt. 1740, Pennsylvania.
vi. ELLIN JONES.
Mentioned in her father's will. She is not to be confused with the Ellin Jones of Gwynedd who left a will in 1755 (that Ellin is the daughter of Robert John of Gwynedd, d. 1732)
Note: Currently we can find no evidence that Lydia Jones (m. Ellis David of Goshen twp.) is a daughter of William John of Gwynedd.

1776 Gwynedd twp., tax list - acres, 2 horses, 3 cows
Howard Jenkins, Historical Collections Relating to Gwynedd. chapter 21. Jepthah and Enos Lewis were brothers, the sons of William Lewis. Their land was on the Wissahickon, between the present stations of Acorn and Lukens, on the Stony Creek railroad. Jepthah Lewis died in December, 1786. His wife's name was Ann, and he left a daughter Mary and a son Joseph. The last named lived a bachelor, very saving and rather eccentric, and died in February, 1828, aged 83. He was a justice of the peace for many years, well-known in his time and after his death long remembered as "Squire Joey" Lewis. His house was on the Thomas farm south-west of the creek. Among his peculiarities was his great care of his timber land, as he was anxious lest he should not have enough fire-wood to last him his life-time. Much of his famr was covered with woods, making a favorite resort for the "gunners" of the country about, though the 'Squire was chary of his permission to come upon his premises, especially after finding that somebody had "holed" a possum or perhaps a 'coon and had cut down the tree to make sure of the prize. After his death the woodland was laid off in lots by a survey made by Cadwalader Foulke, and the timber sold at public sale.
