About Eleanor Foulke

We are fortunate that the brother of Edward Foulke's wife, John Hugh's, (Edward's brother-in-law), wrote an account in 1702 of his emigration to America. This is the only chronicle cited in any of the sources that I've found. Although Edward did not specifically mention John Hugh (or anyone else), it seems irrefutable that John and his family came over on the same voyage. Numerous sources mention John's immigration in 1698. John and Edward both are mentioned in various sources as "Welsh settlers of Gwynedd," and their names are listed among the original purchasers in 1698 of the 11,450 acre tract of land that comprised the Gwynedd settlement. Rough maps show Edward Foulke's 712 acres in the neighborhood of John's 648 acres. Edward's conversion from the Church of England to the Society of Friends is listed in Quaker records, and John's and Edward's children, Ellis and Jane, married in 1713.
