In 1693 the tax list for Chester County, Pennsylvania showed "Widow Neales" residing in Ridley Township. The May, 1693 shows "Nils Frende's widow".

The December 1687 Chester County Court yielded an indictment against "Annie, Neales' widow for keeping and harboring dogs that worries and kills her neighbor's hogs, as also for detaining in her service one Indian boy named Chato who with the said dog have been found to worry and kill the neighbor's hogs." "The said Anne Neales [sic] came into Court and before her arraignment declared that the said dog belonged to Peter Cox [Peter Cock, her apparent grandson] but, because she was not willing to plead to the said indictment, puts herself upon the mercy of the King and Governor and craves to be admitted to a fine, upon which she is fined ten shillings and to pay all court charges with sheriffs and clerk's fees, etc."

"Andrew Friend became bound to the King and Governor in twenty pounds for the Indian boy Chato's good abareing [abearance, behavior] toward all the King's Leidge People." (CCR, 1:115)
