About George Boone, III

http://www.boonesociety.org/boonegenealogy/Boone1st5Gens.pdf

GEORGE BOONE, III. (son of George & Sarah Boone) was born at STOAK (a Village near the City of Exeter) in A.D. 1666, being a Weaver; his Wife's Maiden Name was MARY MAUGRIDGE, who was born in BRADNINCH (eight Miles from the City of Exeter) in the Year 1669, being a Daughter of John Maugridge & Mary his Wife whose maiden Name was MILTON. They (the said George & Mary Boone) had nine Children that lived to be Men and Women: namely, George, Sarah, Squire, Mary, John, Joseph, Benjamin, James & Samuel, having each of them several Children, excepting John who was never married.

The said George and Mary Boone with their Family, came from the Town of Bradninch in Devonshire, Old-England (which is a Town at 8 miles Distance from the City of Exeter, and 177 measured Miles Westward from London); they left Bradninch the 17 Aug. 1717, and went to Bristol where they took Shipping, and arrived at Philadelphia in 1717 September 19, Old-Stile, or October 10th New-Stile; three of their Children, to wit, George, Sarah & Squire they sent in a few Years before. From Philadelphia they went to Abingdon, and staid a few Months there; thence to North-Wales, and liv'd about 2 Years there; then to Oley in the same County of Philadelphia, where Sarah (being married) had moved to some Time before. This last Place of their Residence (since the Divisions made in the Township of Oley & County of Philadelphia) is called the Township of Exeter in the County of Berks: It was called Exeter, because they came from a Place near the City of Exeter. And, He the said George Boone the Third, died on the Sixth Day of the Week, near 8 o'clock in the Morning, on the 27th of July 1744, aged 78 years; and Mary his Wife died on the 2d Day of the Week, on the 2d of February 1740-1, aged 72 years; and were decently interred in Friends Burying-Ground, in the said Township of Exeter. When he died, he left 8 Children, 52 Grand-Children, and 10 Great-Grand-Children, LIVING; in all 70, being as many Persons as the House of Jacob which came into EGYPT

...

Old Style (O.S.) refers to the use of the Julian Calendar prior to 1752 when the Gregorian Calendar was adopted by Parliament: [Note 3]. An act of Parliament was passed in 1751, prescribing the adoption of the Gregorian Calendar throughout Great Britain and her colonies; making the succeeding year begin with the first of January and dropping eleven nominal days (3-13) from the month of September, 1752, so that what would have been the third of the month was called the 14th. The Quakers at their yearly meeting adopted this method, directing the members to recognize the change of style, and decreeing that thereafter the months should be numbered beginning with January. Formerly their numbering had begun with the month called March. The corresponding date on the current Gregorian calendar may be determined by adding eleven days to a date given in Old Style. Under the Julian calendar, the year began on 25 March which was called the 1st month by the Quakers who did not approve of the names given to the months and referred to them by numbers, a practice which they followed under the new calendar as well. [Note 4] Historians and genealogists frequently show years as in the foregoing baptismal date of John Boone for example, 1701/2, to cover the months of January, February and March which, in this instance, was at the end of 1701 under the Julian calendar and the beginning of 1702 under the Gregorian calendar.

The baptisms of three sons of George Boone and Sarah Uppey are recorded in the register of Stoke Canon Parish in Devonshire, England, along with the burials of two of them, as well as the nterment of George and Sarah: [Note 5]

Baptisms:

  • 1663 Oct 19 Boone Henry s of George
  • 1666 Mch 19 Boone George s of George
  • 1673 Apr 20 Boone John s of George

Burials:

  • 1663/4 Feb 8Boone Henry s of George
  • 1695 Apr 18 Boon John
  • 1696 May 31 Boon George
  • 1708/9 Feb 5 Boon Sarah

The Stoke Canon Parish register discloses only one Boone marriage. Nicholas Boone and Mary Kelley were married there on 28 December 1669. Nicholas may have been a brother of George Boone, Jr. He and Mary Kelley had three daughters baptized at Stoke Canon: Elizabeth on 20 October 1670, Anne on 01 May 1673 and Mary on 20 September 1674. Anne was buried there on 04 September 1673, Nicholas was buried there on 09 April 1689 and Mary Kelley Boone was interred there on 25 February 1714/5. The Stoke Canon Parish register begins with the records of 1654. The records for prior years are lost. Parish registers were started in 1539. The parish register for Nether Exe, which is just north of Stoke Canon and could have been a source of Boone records, is missing for the years before 1686. [Note 6]

Stoke Canon is located in the lowlands of the beautiful rolling countryside of Devon. It is situated between the merging of the River Culm into the River Exe, about five miles north of the city of Exeter. Originally called Hrocastoc (Rooks' Farm), the village name was changed to Stoke Canon after King Athelstan granted the manor to the Exeter monastery in 938. The long and ancient bridge spanning two branches of the Culm at Stoke Canon received a legacy in the will of Bishop Stapledon in 1326. [Note 7]

As a blacksmith in Stoke Canon, George Boone, Jr. and his family were entitled to a pew in the front of their parish church and their house undoubtedly was one of the better ones in the village, perhaps similar to this description: [Note 8] It had probably been recently remodeled, as many were during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, to have instead of just one large hall, several rooms, including a parlor, a buttery and kitchen, a hall, and a shop in which the father and his apprentices and journeymen worked at their trade.

The name Uppey undoubtedly is a phonetic spelling of Uphay. No records of persons bearing the name Uppey have been discovered in or about Exeter, but the name Uphay appears in the Calendar of Wills for Farringdon in 1688 and 1704. The name Uphay appears in Devon as early as 1299 when Robert Uphay (Upphaye) was mentioned at instance of the community in Freemen of Exeter under the Mayor's Court Roll, 26-27 Edward I, January 12 (1299). The records of the Archdeaconry Court of Exeter, 1630-1700, contain the following references: [Note 9]

  • 1646 Christopher Boone, Tiverton
  • 1647 Robert Boone, Churchtawton
  • 1671 John Boone, Churchstanton
  • 1680 William Bone, Faringdon
  • 1681 Henry Bone, Exeter
  • 1681 Edith Bone, Faringdon
  • 1688 William Uphay, Faringdon
  • 1699 George Boone, Bickleigh
  • 1704 Mary Uphay, Faringdon

It is not known how George Boone of Bickleigh in 1699 was related to George Boone III. Bickleigh, which is four miles north of Exeter, is four miles northwest of Bradninch where George Boone III married Mary Mogridge. Farringdon is about four miles east of Exeter. Mary Mogridge (Maugridge) who married George Boone III was a daughter of John Mogridge and Mary Milton of Bradninch, a village about nine miles north of Exeter.

Mary Mogridge was baptized in Bradninch Parish, where she and George were married: [Note 10] 1668 Mary the daughter of John Moggridge was baptized the 23 day of December 1689 George Boone married unto Mary Moggridge the 16 day of August

Weaver and a Quaker. Born in Stoak, a hamlet near Exeter in Devonshire England, 1666. In 1712 his son, George Jr, Sarah, and Squire went to Pennsylvania to spy out the land. On the 17th of August 1717, the parents went to Bristol and sailed for Philadelphia. They arrived October 10, 1717. George went on to serve for many years as justice of the peace, and when he became too old and frail to continue, the position passed to his oldest son, George Jr. They "joined themselves to Gwynedd Meeting." When population growth led to the division of Oley township in 1741, the section in which the Boones resided was renamed Exeter, in honor of their English origins.

"Also, the Boone Society has Stoke Canon Parish baptism records for three children of George Boone II and wife Sarah: (1) Henry; (2) George III; & (3) John. Although they may have had other children, only records of three children have been found. These 3 records are:

(1) 'Henry Son of George Boone was baptized the nineteenth of October 1663. Henry Son of George Boone was buryed ye eighth of February 1663.' (Note: In the old style reckoning [Julian calendar], March 25 was the beginning of the year, therefore the infant Henry would have been about 4 months old at his burial.)

(2) 'George Son of George Boone was baptized the Nineteenth of March 1666.'

(3) 'John Son of George Boone was baptized the twentieth day of April 1673. John Boone was buryed the 18th day of April 1693'."

They (the said George & Mary Boone) had nine Children that lived to be Men and Women: namely, George, Sarah, Squire, Mary, John, Joseph, Benjamin, James & Samuel, having each of them several Children, excepting John who was never married. (A daughter named Mary died in infancy, so they named a later daughter Mary also.)

A weaver by trade and a Quaker by religion. Born in the hamlet of Stoak near Exeter in Devonshire, England, he was persecuted and oppressed because of his religion. Inquired of William Penn as to the colony Penn had established in America. In 1712 he sent George, Sarah and Squire to America to see the land. Squire and Sarah stayed in America and George returned to England to report the news of the wonderful land to his father.

On August 17, 1717, George Boone went to Abingdon, a Quaker farming community. Later they moved to the frontier hamlet of North Wales, a Welch community which had turned Quaker.

Owned 400 acres in Olay in the subdivision of what was later called Exeter and lived with his family in a log cabin.

They (the said George & Mary Boone) had nine Children that lived to be Men and Women: namely, George, Sarah, Squire, Mary, John, Joseph, Benjamin, James & Samuel, having each of them several Children, excepting John who was never married. (A daughter named Mary died in infancy, so they named a later daughter Mary also.) The said George and Mary Boone with their Family, came from the Town of Bradninch in Devonshire, Old-England (which is a Town at 8 miles Distance from the City of Exeter, and 177 measured Miles Westward from London); they left Bradninch the 17 Aug. 1717, and went to Bristol where they took Shipping, and arrived at Philadelphia in 1717 September 29, Old-Stile, or October 10th New-Stile; three of their Children, to wit, George, Sarah & Squire they sent in a few Years before.

This last Place of their Residence (since the Divisions made in the Township of Oley & County of Philadelphia) is called the Township of Exeter in the County of Berks: It was called Exeter, because they came from a Place near the City of Exeter. And,

“He the said George Boone the Third, died on the Sixth Day of the Week, near 8 o’clock in the Morning, on the 27th of July 1744, aged 78 Years; and Mary his Wife died on the 2d Day of the Week, on the 2d of February 1740-1; aged 72 years; and were decently interred in Friends Burying-Ground, in the said Township of Exeter.
