About Patrick Henderson

Extract from "The Immigration of Irish Quakers into Pennsylvania":

Patrick Henderson, the author of a work called "Truth and Innocence, The Armour and Defense of the People called Quakers," was a prominent minister among the Friends in the North of Ireland. In 1707, accompanied by Samuel Wilkinson, he travelled on a gospel mission throughout the limits of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. "Patrick Hendersan," writes James Logan to William Penn, "is I think Scotch by birth, and is a most extraordinary young man as ever visited these parts."

Patrick Henderson received on 3 Nov 1708 two certificates, one from Ballyhagan, Ireland, and the other from Long Island.


  • 3. From "Englehardt/Dickinson Family History", April 1999: "Gayen Miller first appears in Chester Co., PA in 1702 (where he bought land in Kennet Township). He married Margaret, said to be the daughter of Dr. Patrick Henderson of Scotland about 1695. Two of their children seem to have been born before their removal to Pennsylvania. Margaret, his widow, died January 1743-4. (Appendix, page 401)". SOURCE: "OUR FAMILY ANCESTORS" by Thomas Maxwell Potts, page 250
