About Daniel Craig

The Craig family are descended from William Craig, of Stirlingshire, Scotland, who, to escape the persecution of the Presbyterians by James I, settled at Dungannon, Ireland. Four of his sons and several of his daughters emigrated to America. The sons were Thomas, Daniel, James, and William. Sarah Craig, one of the daughters, was born in 1706 and married Richard Walker, Esq., a prominent resident of Warrington township, Bucks county. She died April 24, 1784. Margaret Craig, another daughter, married John Gray, of the same place. She died in 1782, leaving two sons, John and James, and two daughters. Jane Craig, another daughter, married Thomas Boyd of Allen township, and had two sons, Robert and Thomas.

Daniel Craig, settled on a tract of 250 acres in Warrington township, Bucks County, where he died in June, 1776, having been totally blind for some years. His widow, Margaret, survived him, with eight children: Thomas; John; William; Margaret, wife of James Barclay; Sarah, wife of John Barnhill; Jane, wife of Samuel Barnhill; Mary Lewis; and Rebecca, wife of Hugh Stephenson. His son Thomas took a prominent part in the Revolution, was commissioned a captain, October 23, 1776, and commanded a company in Col. Baxter's "Flying Camp" in the battle of Fort Washington, November, 1776. He served throughout the war and at its close was Commissioner of Purchases with the rank of colonel. He married Jean Jamison. Sarah Craig, who married John Barnhill, survived her husband, who at his death in 1797, was a merchant at 42 North Third Street, Philadelphia. They had three children: Robert, Margaret, and Sarah.

The Craigs were in Warrington about the same period, the family consisting of Daniel and wife Margaret, with children Thomas, John, William, Margaret, wife of James Barclay, Sarah, wife of John Barnhill, (3) Jane, wife of Samuel Barnhill, Mary Lewis and Rebecca, wife of Hugh Stephenson. Daniel Craig located a considerable tract on the west side of the Bristol road including the site of the tavern at Newville, subsequently built upon it, and was known as "Craig's tavern" for many years. Two of his brothers, Thomas and William Craig, settled in Northampton county and formed what is known as "Craig's" or the "Irish Settlement," Presbyterian, in Allen township. This was the first permanent settlement north of the Lehigh. Thomas Craig, son of Thomas, of Northampton, took a prominent part in the Revolution. He was commissioned Captain, October 1776, and rose to the command of a regiment, serving to the end of the war. His cousin, John Craig, was captain in the 4th Pa. Light Dragoons.
