xvii Green Family

1. JAMES GREEN, the founder of the Green family of Richland, was born about the year 1690, probably in England, and we know nothing of his ancestry. Tradition relates that he married a widow Large.* daughter of Ellis Lewis. The statement that his wife was a daughter of Ellis Lewis seems to be corroborated by the fact that the name of Margaret Green appears as one of the witnesses on the marriage certificate of Lewis Lewis, of Upper Dublin, son of Ellis, on 2 mo. 19, 1728. (See No. 2, Chapter XXIX.) Her name appears immediately below those of the parents of the groom and as it was the invariable custom for the members of the families of the contracting parties to sign in the same column as the bride and groom, there can be no doubt that she was a near relative. James Green lived for a time in the neighborhood of `Vhitemarsh. About 1723 he purchased a tract of land in \Vhitemarsh Township, which he sold to William Carter on 8 mo. 27, 1725, signing his name to the conveyance therefor by mark; the mark, however, being the printed initials of his name. About the year 1730 he settled on a tract of 300 acres or thereabouts in Springfield Township, just outside of Richland Manor, at its northeast corner.f A warrant of survey was granted by the Proprietaries October 29, 1737, "at the request of James Green of Bucks that we would grant him to take up two hundred acres of land whereon he has been settled seven years adjoining the land of John Griffith on Cooks Creek, in the said County of Bucks, for which he agrees to pay to our use the sum of £15 10 s, current money of this province for each hundred acres and the yearly quitrent of one half penny Sterling for every acre thereof." Signed "Thomas Penn." The tract was surveyed in pursuance of the warrant on April 22, 1738, and it was found to contain 300 acres and 75 perches with allowance of 6% for roads and highways. Conveyance of this land was made October 31, 1749, by Thomas Penn, etc. Here James and Margaret Green resided until old age.

*A connection between James Green and the Green and Large families who settled in the vicinity of Bristol. Pa., would seem logical from this tradition, but diligent search has failed to show same. See foot note. Chapter I, " Manor and Township of Richland," in reference to portion of Springfield Township sometimes referred to as Saucon.

The same tradition above referred to relates that they had three sons, whose names were Francis, James, and Joseph; that Francis and James emigrated to the northern part of Virginia and took UP a tract of land there and 144 0 settled amongst the Indians, their parents remaining in Bucks County with the younger son Joseph. Some years later Francis and James came to visit their parents in Springfield and persuaded the aged couple to accompany them to Virginia on their return. James Green and Margaret his wife conveyed 100 acres of the lower end of his Springfield plantation to his son Francis on April 2, 1750, and Francis Green and Margaret his wife convey( c' the same tract to William Bryan, May 21, 1750. This was probably the date on which Francis and James Green removed to Virginia. Joseph, the youngest son, probably acquired the balance of the tract at about the same date. Joseph died 5 mo. 26, 1757, and it is probably at about this date that the brothers Francis and James came back to the Great Swamp and took their parents with them to Virginia. The lower line of the 300 acre plantation was the northern line of what was known as the Lottery Tract, and on the west lay the tract of Joseph Unthank, on which still stands the old stone house in NAich the Springfield Friends held indulged meetings, under the jurisdiction of Richland Monthly Meeting, until the removal of the Unthank family to the south, in 1755. A short distance above the Unthank residence on the old "Road to Durham," near the line of the Bryan tract, a set of old log buildings were once located but now have entirely disappeared. These were doubtless the homes of James and Joseph Green (No. 2). A painting made about 1860 by Joseph John, a well known artist, for Joseph Green (No. 26), from a description furnished by the latter shows these buildings on both sides of the road; a print of this painting precedes this chapter.

prominently identified with the history of Richland Manor from its conception down to the present time, was born about the year 1717. He died in Springfield Township, 5 mo. 26, 1757, in hisiorty-ninth year. He was a member of Richland Monthly Meeting of Friencis, and married under the auspices of that meeting 3 mo. 10, 1744, Catharine Thomas, daughter of Samuel and Margaret (Morgan) Thomas, who were among the first settlers in Richland. (See No. 3, Chapter XLV.) Joseph was a weaver by trade and settled on a farm of 108 acres in Springfield Township, near the line of Richland, and probably within the bounds of Richland Manor. He mortgaged his farm to the General Loan Office for sixty pounds, which was unpaid at the time of his death, and by arrangement with his administrators who were his brothers-inlaw, John and Thomas Thomas, the trustees of the Loan Office made sale of the real estate so as to clear the title, the form of mortgage taken by them to secure loans being equivalent to a deed. The property was sold for nearly four times the amount of the mortgage and the settlement of the estate shows that he was possessed of a clear estate of one hundred and seventy pounds, which was distributed to his widow and eight children. His widow, Catharine Thomas, died 7 mo. 12, 1770.

Sir: Altho I have not the honour of your acquaintance, nor perhaps am I known to you by name, I feel encouraged to take the liberty of addressing you from the entire reliance on your universal love manifested both in your practice and profession. My object in intruding on your time is to express the gratification I have felt in reading the sermons you preached at different meetings. and which have since beenpublished by your friends in America. And I have been the rather induced to do so at the request of I. H. Foster of the ship Georgia. to whom I happened to express my esteem of your character. Every sentiment found there seems to have proceeded not only from your lips, but from your heart. The true spirit of Christian charity and belief flows from them, and cannot fall short of making some impression on every heart which is susceptible of it. I hope and pray that God -may reward you for your pious life and benevolent exertions. Your most humble Servant, Mr. Elias Hicks.
