About Edward Morgan, the tailor

http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=59096959

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Edward_Morgan_Log_House

Edward Morgan possibly married Elizabeth Jarman, probably the daughter of John Jarman. Edward and his wife arrived in PA in 1683 and lived near Radnor PA until 1695 when they moved to Towamencin Township and built a house on 500 acres of land. He joined the Society of Friends and was known as Edward Morgan the Tailor.

"The Morgan house and family figure importantly in American History. Edward MORGAN, {son of Sir James MORGAN of Llantarnam} [sic - not Sir James' son], Wales, brought his wife Elizabeth to America in 1683. In Philadelphia they became members of the Society of Friends at the Haverford-Radnor-Merion Meeting, later acquired the house-site and some 800 acres, and became the first settlers in the Upper Welsh tract beyond Gwynedd.

Their daughter Sarah, born in the house, grew up to marry one Squire BOONE, and made them the grandparents of Daniel BOONE, that great frontiersman who led the settlement of Kentucky and then the West.

Early Settler Of the Welsh colony of Gwynedd, Berks County (now Montgomery County), PA. While some sources say his birth place is Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, that is not correct. Death: 1739 Place: Gwynedd, Pennsylvania

Edward Morgan, born Abt. 1670 in Momouthshire, Wales; died Aft. 1732 in Gwynedd, Philadelphia County, PA. He was NOT the son of Sir James Morgan and Lady Alice Hopton. He married Elizabeth Jarman. Elizabeth Jarman, born Abt. 1670 in Wales; died Aft. 1731.

It is known that Edward Morgan was in Philadelphia in 1684 when he was granted a lot in the city: (Seal) William Penn Proprietary & Governor of Pennsylvania & ye territories thereunto belonging At ye request of Edward Morgan yt I would grant him to take up a lott in ye City of Philadelphia These are to will & require thee forthwith to survey or cause to be surveyed unto him a lott in ye center on Skullkill side be fencing it in & building upon ye same wthin. six months from ye date of survey & make returns thereof into my Secretarys office Given at Philadelphia ye 27th of ye 5th mo 1684 Wm Penn For Thomas Holme Surveyr. Genl.

In 1681 William Penn sold all of Pennsylvania to speculative holders (in Wales) in portions of 5000 acres. By 1682 all allotments were completed and the books were closed. One of the speculators, Griffith Jones, made his purchase in Wales and upon his arrival in Pennsylvania he found that much of his land had been settled. He only received 2290 acres of his original 5000 acres, of which 600 acres were in Towamencin. In 1702 Jones received a patent from the Commissioners of Property for the 600 acres in Towamencin and sold 300 acres of it to Edward Morgan by deed dated 26 February 1708. This tract adjoined the land of William John and was on the Township line (Valley Forge Road). James Claypoole, a merchant, got a grant of patent for 1000 acres in Towamencin from William Penn on 02 February 1686. At James Claypoole's death his son George Claypoole inherited the 1000 acres, which was recorded on 25 April 1700. George Claypoole sold the tract to another speculator, Clements Plumstead, in 1702 and then bought it back on 26 June 1708. On 22 September 1714 Edward Morgan received a deed for 500 acres of Claypoole's 1000 acres in Towamencin. The 800 acres were distributed by Edward Morgan to his sons as follows: James Claypoole Tract Griffith Jones Tract

  • Morgan Morgan 197 acres
  • Joseph Morgan 250 acres
  • Daniel Morgan 222 acres
  • John Morgan 54 acres
  • John Morgan 50 acres
  • Vacant land 27 acres

John Morgan's parcels of the two main tracts adjoined. The Morgan Log House is one of Pennsylvania's earliest primitive houses (1695). It has been completely restored and is open to visit. Washington's army of 11,000 (prior to the winter at Valley Fordge), was encamped the length of Towamencin Township. Washington's headquarters were nearby the Morgan house. It was here on October 15th, that he told his troops of America's victory.

Historical Collections of Gwynedd by Howard Jenkins page 410

"The first settler in Gwynedd or its vicinity named Morgan, was Edward. He seems to have been here as early as 1704, as the road upward through Gwynedd, made in that year, was to go as far as his place. He was a tailor by trade, a Welshman by birth, no doubt, and probably advanced in years when he came. He had lived previously near Philadelphia. In February, 1708, he bought 300 acres of land in what is now Towamencin, of Griffith Jones, merchant, Philadelphia. The tract lay along William John's land, and was therefore on the township line. In 1714 he bought 500 acres more, nearby, of George Claypool of Philadelphia, who, like Griffith Jones,was a speculative holder of Towamencin lands. By 1713 he had apparently moved to Montgomery; in the deed from Claypool he is described as a "yeoman of Montgomery."

Edward Morgan no doubt had several children. His sons probably received and held the Towamencin lands. In the list of 1734, for that township there appear: Joseph Morgan, 200 acres, Daniel Morgan, 200; John Morgan, 100. In 1727, Morgan Morgan of Towamencind died leaving a will in which he mentions jhis wife Dorothy, his brothers Joseph, John and William, his two sons Edward and Jesse (both minors), and his niece Elizabeth, John's daughter."

The Family of Edward Morgan of Pennsylvania: Daniel Boone's Maternal Kin"

"Edward Morgan, of Philadelphia, later of near Gwynedd, in what is now Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, born say 1660, possibly in Wales, and still living on 27 8m [October] 1732, married Elizabeth (Jarman?), who was still living 7 10m [December] 1731, and was probably a daughter of John Jarman, an early Quaker immigrant from Wales to Pennsylvania. The exact time of Edward Morgan's arrival in America is unknown, but he received a warrant for a city lot in Philadelphia on 27 5m [July] 1684."

THE MORGAN LOG HOUSE -- This 1695 medieval, 2 1/2 story log house, the only one of its kind still surviving in America, was built by grandparents of Daniel Boone, the frontiersman, and forebears of General Daniel Morgan famed Revolutionary War "raider." In this house the American roots of a distinguished family tree were planted. Besides Morgan offspring, Rittenhouse, Morris, Roberts, Lloyd, Robeson and Hanks are family names on its branches... Edward Morgan's son, Morgan, had built a house on 197 acres of the original 800 acres in 1718.

Edward Morgan and Elizabeth, his wife, both free, arrived at Philadelphia in the same ship (The Morning Star) from Liverpool, in the 9th month 1683 (20th 9th month)." (Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, Vol 8, page 329).

The ancestry of Edward Morgan, progenitor of the Morgan family of Montgomery County, Penn., and grandfather of explorer Daniel Boone & Edward Boone, is still a matter of speculation. One of the most objective analyses of the identity annd family of Edward Morgan was made some fifty years ago by Mrs. Hazel Atterbury Spraker, in her book, THE BOONE FAMILY. Excerpts from this source are as follows:

"There is an early record which states that "Edward Morgan and Elizabeth his wife, both free, arrived at Philadelphia in the same ship (The Morning Star) from Liverpool, in the 9th month 1683 (20th 9th month)." (Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, Vol.8,page 329)

"Another Edward Morgan, recorded in Radnor Monthly Meeting, was born in Merionithshire, Wales, 25 August 1679; was a son of Cadwalader Morgan, and came to Pennsylvania with his parents."

"A third Edward Morgan is referred to by Thomas Allen Glenn in his Wlesh Founders of Pennsylvania, Vol. 2, page 1, in which it is stated that Edward Morgan of near Bala, Co. Merionithshire, a tailor, had a son named Morgan who removed to Gwynedd, PA, about 1700 and was a freeholder of 800 acres of land in Gwynedd, died in Towamencin, 1727, leaving a wife Dorothy.

A fourth record of an Edward Morgan is found in a "History of the Family of Morgan, from the year 1089 to Present Times," by James Appleton Morgan, New York (1897-1902). In this it is stated that Edward Morgan was the son of Sir James Morgan, 4th Baronet of Llantarnum, and wife, Lady Alice Hopoton; that Edward ame to America with his sister Sarah, wife of Stephen Beasley, married Margaret --- and had a daughter Sarah Morgan who married Squire Boone. No authority is given for this last statement. In this book the ancestry is carried back through many royal lines to as early as the year 605.

At this late date it seems impossible to determine which, if any of the above Edward Morgans was the father of Sarah, and hence the grandfather of Daniel Boone. Althought his ancestry, his early life and the name of his wife, may always remain in obscurity, we yet have a brief history of the later life and children of Edward of Gwynedd, as given in "Historical Collections of Gwynedd by Howard Jenkins, page 410." This history of Edward Morgan reads as follows:

_______________________

Edward Morgan , a tailor came to America, in 1683 with his wife Elizabeth. Settled first at Philadelphia, became members of the Society of Friends at Havenford-Radnor-Merion Meeting. He bought 800 acres of land at Gwynedd (Towamencin Twp) where he built his house in 1695. This house has been restored and is one of Pennsylvanias Historical Places. It was dedicated 12 Nov. 1976, located near Lansdale, Pennsylvania. [note by Judy Driscoll: Mrs. Cosby took this information from "A History of the Family of Morgan, from the year 1089 to Present Times," by James Appleton Morgan, NY 18970-1902).

The first settler in the area of Gwynedd was Edward Morgan. Edward must have been there around 1704, because the road going thru Gwynedd to his place was built that year. He was a tailor by trade, Welsh by birth. He was an older man by this time. He came to the Gwynned area from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. In 1708, he purchased 300 acres land in what is now called Towamencin. Ewdard's land ajoined William John's land. This became the boundry line for the township. Edward attained 500 acres in 1714.

   seems to have been here as early as 1704, as the road upward through
   Gwynedd, made in that year, was to go as far as his place. He was a tailor by trade, a Welshman by birth, no doubt, and probably advanced in years when he came. He had lived previously near Philadelphia. In February, 1708, he bought 300 acres of land in what is now Towamencin, of Griffith Jones, merchant, Philadelphia. The tract lay along William John's land, and was therefore on the township line. In 1714 he bought 500 acres more, nearby, of George Claypool of Philadelphia, who, like Griffith Jones,was a speculative holder of Towamencin lands. By 1713 he had apparently moved to Montgomery; in the deed from Claypool he is described as a "yeoman of Montgomery."
   Edward Morgan no doubt had several children. His sons probably received and held the Towamencin lands. In the list of 1734, for that township there appear: Joseph Morgan, 200 acres, Daniel Morgan, 200; John Morgan, 100. In 1727, Morgan Morgan of Towamencin died leaving a will in which he mentions his wife Dorothy, his brothers Joseph, John and William, his two sons Edward and Jesse (both minors), and his niece Elizabeth, John's daughter."
   Some attach a Ruth Morgan b 1695, Montgomery PA and a George Morgan b 1708 of Blackwood, Gloucester NJ, died 5-1-1759 in Blackwood
   Some show Sarah and Alice born back in Wales (Bala)

   Notes for Edward Morgan: It is known that Edward Morgan was in Philadelphia in 1684 when he was granted a lot in the city: (Seal) William Penn Proprietary & Governor of Pennsylvania & ye territories thereunto belonging

   In 1681 William Penn sold all of Pennsylvania to speculative holders (in Wales) in portions of 5000 acres. By 1682 all allotments were completed and the books were closed. One of the speculators, Griffith Jones, made his purchase in Wales and upon his arrival in Pennsylvania he found that much of his land had been settled. He only received 2290 acres of his original 5000 acres, of which 600 acres were in Towamencin. In 1702 Jones received a patent from the Commissioners of Property for the 600 acres in Towamencin and sold 300 acres of it to Edward Morgan by deed dated 26 February 1708. This tract adjoined the land of William John and was on the Township line (Valley Forge
   Road). James Claypoole, a merchant, got a grant of patent for 1000 acres in Towamencin from William Penn on 02 February 1686. At James Claypoole's death his son George. Claypoole inherited the 1000 acres, which was recorded on 25 April 1700. George Claypoole sold the tract to another speculator, Clements Plumstead, in 1702 and then bought it back on 26 June 1708. On 22 September 1714 Edward Morgan received a deed for 500 acres of Claypoole's 1000 acres in Towamencin. The 800 acres were distributed by Edward Morgan to his sons as follows: James Claypoole Tract Griffith Jones Tract
   Morgan Morgan 197 acres Joseph Morgan 250 acres
   Daniel Morgan 222 acres John Morgan 54 acres
   John Morgan 50 acres Vacant land 27 acres
   John Morgan's parcels of the two main tracts adjoined.

   MORGAN LOG HOUSE, one of Pennsylvania's earliest (1695) primitive houses,
   has been completely restored and is now open to visit, Sat. & Sun. from 1 to 5
   p.m., or by appointment: 368-2480. Location is on Weikel Road, between
   Allentown Road and Snyder Road (off Rt. 363), Towamencin Township, near
   Lansdale, Montgomery County. Admission is charged. The Morgan house and family figure importantly in American History. Edward Morgan, son of Sir James Morgan of Llantarnam, Wales, brought his wife Elizabeth to America in 1683. In Philadelphia they became members of the Society of Friends at the Haverford-Radnor-Merion Meeting, later acquired the house-site and some 800 acres, and became the first settlers in the Upper Welsh tract beyond Gwynedd. Their daughter Sarah, born in the house, grew up to marry one Squire Boone, and made them the grandparents of Daniel Boone, that great frontiersman
   who led the settlement of Kentucky and then the "West." Another descendant was famed Revolutionary War General Daniel Morgan, "The Raider." Others of the children and grandchildren married into such leading first-families as the Morrises, Rittenhouses, Lloyds, Roberts and Robesons.
   The property itself figured in historic events. Among them: In October of 1777
   Washington's army, 11,000 strong before the winter at Valley Forge, made its
   encampment the length of Towamencin Township. His headquarters was nearby to Morgan House, and it was here on October 15 he informed his troops of the
   Americans' victory - in which Daniel Morgan's brigade of sharpshooting riflemen figured so importantly - over General Burgoyne's army at Saratoga.

   Edward Morgan's daughter Sarah who married Squire Boone was said to have been the aunt of General Daniel Morgan. I am wondering how? what her sister married to James Morgan? I think Eleanor was a 2nd wife. If Elanor was a Quaker and married Baptist, she would have been disowned. What would she be if James Morgan was her 1st cousin instead of brother in law?

SOme record James as his son, but there is no proof and I guess it is a desparate attempt to find a place for him by throwning him in to Edward Jrs lap.
   1721 Minutes of Gwynedd Monthly Meeting
   3rdly Application being made on behalf of John Morgan for a Certificate to Haverford Monthly Meeting in order to proceed in Marriage with one Sarah Lloyd belonging to the said Meeting.

   In "Life of Gen. Daniel Morgan of the Virginia line" by James Graham we find, "It is interesting to know that these two famous fighters of the Revolutionary period, Daniel Morgan and Daniel Boone were first cousins, but we have found no adequate proof of this connection." This could be thru the Bownes of Bucks Co. PA.
   "It was in North Wales hamlet, Pennsylvania, that Squire Boone met Sarah Morgan and married her" in Gwynedd MM, Montgomery Co., PA a Quaker meeting house.
   http://www.data-wales.co.uk/boone2.htm
   John Morgan of Abington meeting and Richland Meeting is incorrectly put as Edward's son sometimes, but he cannot be because John is mentioned before 1720-21 in Quaker records as having married out of Unity to Deborah Woodruff and was rejected by the meeting and not taken back in, so he could not have been married to Sarah Loyld in Meeting in 1720-1721. Deborah and John lived together in marriage til 1743. Will is proof and membership in Richland MM.
