    Helen,

    I don't have a direct HICKS line but I have two collateral lines that intermarried with two distinct HICKS families. Because Meshack is not a very common name, I suspect that the Meshac (this is the spelling I found) HICKS in Warren Co., TN is related to the earlier Meshack HICKS of Goochland Co., Virginia who married into my MORELAND family there.

    I have a Thomas SIMPSON who married Nancy MORELAND Warren Co., TN in 1817.

    The bride was related to:

    1. Meshack1 Hicks was born ca. 1738 (Source: This family group from LDS archive record (undocumented).), and died 21 August 1816 in Goochland Co., VA.

    Children of Meshack Hicks are:

    2 i. Meshack2 Hicks, born ca. 1764. He married Elizabeth Moreland 17 June 1787 in Goochland Co., VA.

    Notes for Meshack Hicks:

    >Dear Nona: We saw your question about the Hicks. We have Hicks in Warren Co. early 1800's. We have William Hicks who was born about 1793 in NC or VA who married Sarah Magness, daughter of George Magness and Polly Durham.

    We have a list of their children we would be happy to share. We have not been able to connect William to any of the Hicks in early Warren Co. I have seen such names as Stephen, Thomas, Archibald, and an older and younger Meshack. Do you know anything about any of them?

    Notes:

    Hello David,

    I recently upload mine and my Dad's data from 23andMe to FTDNA. I see that we have several surnames in common: Brittain; Cantrell; Jones; Moore; Potter; Smith.

    Dad is 86 years old and was born and raised in Cannon, Woodbury, TN. His paternal side mostly lived in the DeKalb County, TN area.

    With all of those names matching up, I don't know where to begin to figure out our mutual ancestor/s. But I'll try:

    Hannah Brittain (1725-1769) was married to John M. Cantrell Sr. (1724-1803)

    James Moore (1744-1831) married to Susannah Jones (1753-1825)

    Note: I have other sets of the surname "Jones" too, who don't appear to be related to one another - but ya never know. I can provide all of the Jones in my direct line if you need for me to.

    Addl Note: Dad has Cantrells on both his paternal and maternal sides, so it gets a little confusing - for me anyway.

    Aaron Cantrell (1770-1834) married Martha Elizabeth Smith (1765-1866)

    John Smith (1725-1798) married to Martha Potter (1743-1826)

    Addtional surnames of Potter and Smtih too.

    Assuming that you have all of these same (or most) ancestors, I hope we can try to narrow it down as to where yours and my branch split off.

    Thank you, Joyce

    "John Cantrell, Sr., was a miller and Baptist Minester. He helped establish the Buck Creek Baptist Chruch in Buck Creek, Sportanburg Co., South Carolina. He served as Pastor from 1800 to 1803. John is burried in Cantrell Family Cemetery. John had a brother by the name of Isaac Cantrell who was also a Baptist preacher at Buck Creek Baptist Church. The Cantrell Cemetery is near the the Buck Creek Baptist Chruch: Information from: Earnest H. Cantrell, Route 1, Box 50, Beaverton, Al. 35544, (1989)'".

    JOHN3 CANTRELL (JOSEPH2 CANTRILL, RICHARD1) was born October 1724 in New Castle, DE, and died 1803 in Spartanburg Co, SC. He married (1) ?? BRITTAIN. He married (2) JANE.

    John was in Rockingham Co NC before the Revolution. He later moved to Spartanburg Co SC, where he owned over 800 acres on Buck Creek in the 96th District. One of the first members of the Buck Creek Baptist Church, son Isaac was a messenger there. Sons Abraham, Stephen and Moses administered his estate. His first 17 sons were by his first wife, four sons and two daughters by his second. There were supposedly a number of twins in the family, and for the sake of his first wife, let us fervently hope so.

    According to the Cantrell family file folder in the Georgia Archives, "Aaron, Simon and Peter were captured during the Revolution and were condemned to be shot. Tradition says Peter was shot, and Aaron & Peter [sic] escaped." The three were also supposedly scouts in Gen. Marion's army.

    Children of John Cantrell and ?? Brittain are:

    i. ABRAHAM4 CANTRELL, b. ca 1744, New Castle.
    ii. ISAAC CANTRELL, b. 1745, New Castle, DE; d. ca 1808, Spartanburg Co, SC.

    *************************


    Incidentally, I'm told there is no name John Miller Cantrell. Rather, "Old" John Cantrell who m. Miss Brittain had a son who was known as "Miller" John Cantrell because he owned a mill in SC. That's the John who m. Elizabeth Cantrell. Since my husband apparently doesn't have that line, I'm not getting excited about it but it is a point of interest and clarification if true.

    The Cantrell name orginated in France, and was spelled CHANTELLE. The first Cantrell to be recorded in England was during the rain of King John 1199, AD. He was William Cantrell. The first Cantrell to be married in America was also a William Cantrell, the nineth in line fron the first William Cantrell. William Cantrell arrived on the Ship Phenix, at Jamestown, Vergnine 1608. This William Cantrell is known as the Progenitor of most of the Cantrell's in America.

    From the area of Philadelphia, Pa., the Cantrell's Migroated as "Mishionaries of the Mother Baptist Church" south to North and South Carolines. John Centrell Sr. after service in the Rev. War from N. C. settled in a place called Bucks Creek.

    The Bucks Creek Baptist Church is still standing. The Cantrell family Cemetery is a stort destance away. John Cantrell Sr. is beruied in this cemetery.

    John CANTRELL Sr. was a miller and Baptist Minester. He helped establish the Bucks Creek Baptist Church in Buck Creek, [Sportanburg Co.] S. C. Served as Pastor from 1800 to 1803. John is burried in Cantrell Family Cemetery. John had a brother by the name of Isaac Cantrell. Isaac also was pastor of the Bucks Creek Baptist Church. The Cantrell Cemetery is near the Bucks Creek Baptist Church.



    Notes from Carl D. Cantrell:

    He was married twice. He had seventeen sons by his first wife _______ Brittian and four sons and two daughters by his second wife Jane ______. We have heard from several that there were a number of twins in this large family. He died in 1803 and his sons Abraham, Stephen and Moses administered upon his estate.

    There are may traditions in the family regarding John Cantrell and his family and their moving to the Carolinas, but the exact date of his leaving New Castle county is not known. It is known, however, that he was living in Rockingham county, or what is now that county, North Carolina, before the Revolutionary War, and shortly after the war he moved to Ninety Six District, now Spartanburg county, SC, where he owned over eight hundred acres of land on Buck creek, waters of the Pacolet river. John Cantrell and his family were devoted and active members in the Buck creek Baptist church and some of his descendants still attend this old church. There is not reliable authority for a correct tabulation for any but the first three of the children of John Cantrell and we have endeavored to make the list correct from records, rather than from lists furnished from memory by his descendants. His father moved to the big valley of Virginia before John reached his teens. In 1738, his father was living in Orange county, Virginia. He spent all of his life as a farmer. We don't know what education he had but he probably received what ever was available to frontier lads. The family genealogist stated that he married two times and, from the ages of the children, this is probably true. She stated that his 1st wife was a Miss Brittain. She was probably a sister of Joseph Brittain, who lived near John in North Carolina and who is mentioned in the records of his brother, Joseph, in 1759, in Rowan county. The marriage was probably somewhere in the valley of Virginia. In the 18th century, families from Pennsylvania filtered down through the Great Valley of Virginia to the Piedmont Plateau of the Carolinas.

    The family had become associated with the Baptist Church and Isaac, John's brother, was ordained a minister. The family settled in the "Land of Eden," Granville county, North Carolina, which became Orange county in September, 1752. John is first located on a tax list submitted by the Sheriff in 1754. The list was for two white polls. His brother Isaac received a land grant for 202 acres of land in Orange county, November 13, 1756. He sold this land to John on March 13, 1759. The deed was witnessed by James Watson. The land was on a ridge between the waters of County Line Creek and Jordons Creek. The land was about seven miles north of the Upper Branch of the Haw River, on the waters of Wolf Island Creek which was a branch of the Dan River to the north. It is about two miles north of the present town of Reidsville, Rockingham county, North Carolina. After the tax list of 1754, the next time we find John is in the Minutes of the Orange County Records, when he is sued by James Cary Jr. on a debt in the December court of 1758. In the Court of September, 1759, he and his brother Joseph were on a road jury to lay out a road from Hogna's Creek to the county courthouse. He and William Savage were appointed Overseers of the road. In August, 1760, they were appointed to another road jury to lay out a road from Daniel McGullon's plantation to Taylors road leading to the court house. He was appointed overseer to the lower section. In August, 1763, Henry Cobb was appointed to replace John on the Lower town road, and in May, 1765, John Morrow was appointed Overseer in place of John on the other road. In May, 1766, John was appointed Overseer of a road in place of William Laughlin. On November 12, 1765, John sold his 202 acres of land to William Jones. No record of his having purchased other land are found in Orange county records. Guilford county, North Carolina, was formed in 1771 from the western part of Orange county. John and his family lived in the northern part of this new county, and this area became Rockingham county in 1785. But, by this time John and his family and many others in the area had moved south westward down the Piedmont Plateau to the 96th District of South Carolina. When this move was made has not been firmly established but it appears to have been shortly after the close of the Revolutionary War. His 1st wife died and he married Jane________.

    The 1st wife is probably buried at the Wolf Island Baptist Church Cemetery. The church was formed in 1777 by his brother, Isaac, on a part of his 770 acre farm. Isaac's 1st wife died in the area and she was probably buried on the ridge where the church was built. John's wife is probably buried at the same burial place. In the 1960s, the field markers were removed to facilitate mowing. It was estimated that there were probably one hundred unmarked graves in the cemetery. The family genealogist stated that he had seventeen sons by the 1st wife and four sons and two daughters by the 2nd wife. She admitted there was no reliable authority for a correct tabulation for the listed children of John except for the first three. She had heard the tradition of the Cantrell with twenty-one sons and though there was available evidence that Isaac was more likely to have had the twenty-one sons, she attributed them to John and preceded to compile a list of twenty-one. We now know that two of the listed sons were not Cantrells but Curtis. This was due to a misreading of the 1790 census. We know that at least three of the children listed were nephews, sons of brother Isaac. Two sons listed were never located on census reports or other records, but this does not mean that they did not exist, so we end up with a list of sixteen sons. Because two daughters of John were born during the years of the 1st marriage, we can assume there were at least four daughters.

    Soon after John arrived in the 96th District, later Spartanburg county, South Carolina, he acquired 800 acres of land on Buck Creek, waters of the Pacolet River. Later his brother Isaac and many of his sons and nephews also acquired land in the area.

    In 1790, John is listed as head of household in the census of the 96th District. He had one son under sixteen and two daughters at home. Many family names on this census were familiar names first located in the court records of Orange county, North Carolina. We have assumed that John and his brothers were the first to use the spelling of the family name as Cantrell, but now we find his father, Joseph used this spelling in 1758 in Virginia. The history of the South Carolina Baptist Church gives statistics for the Buck Creek Baptist Church for the period 1790-1800. This church claims to have been a constituted body since 1779. Situated near Pacolet River about twelve miles northeast of Spartanburg, it became a constituent of the Bethel Association in 1789. In 1790, the church had 78 members. When John's brother, Isaac moved south in 1795, he became the minister there from 1796 though 1798. John was a messenger to the Bethel Association from 1797 though 1799. In 1800, John is listed as the minister.

    The church building has been rebuilt several times in the past 200 years. At the present time, there is a new, large, red brick church building across the road from the old church location and the cemetery. It is located on a hill, about a quarter of a mile north of the mouth of Buck Creek, about 2 miles west of Mayo. Descendants of the family are still members of the church. John was not listed as the head of household in the 1800 census of South Carolina, but his was listed in the household of his son, Moses, age 36. The household listed a male and female over 45 years of age. We know that John owned three slaves and the listing for Moses had 3 slaves listed. John died February, 1803, and three sons, Abraham, Stephen, and Moses were appointed administrators of the estate. The probate was recorded in Deed book "L" page 193. His widow, Jane, received a dower settlement. In the last several years, a number of researchers have tried to locate this deed book without success. John is probably buried at the Buck Creek Baptist Church Cemetery. The center of the cemetery has at least one hundred graves marked by fieldstones with only graves since the 1850s containing information on the stones. Jane is not listed as head of household on the 1810 census. She was probably living in the household of a married daughter.

    JOSEPH2 CANTRELL, (Richard1),

    b abt 1695 Philadelphia, PA m Catharina _____. Joseph is named as a grandson in the will of Jane Jones, written in 1730. He apparently grew up in Philadelphia, and moved when a young man to what is now Wilmington, New Castle County, Delaware, about 20 miles down the Delaware River from Philadelphia. This area had been settled by the Swedes, including some Finns, in 1638, and they had established there the Holy Trinity Church, known in later years as "Old Swedes Church.".

    The present structure was built in 1698 and is still in use today. It was Swedish Lutheran until 1791, when the last Swedish pastor departed and jurisdiction was transferred to the Protestant Episcopal Church. Joseph married probably married about 1718, his wife was named Catharina. Susan Christie in 1908 thought that Catharina was probably a descendant of one of the old Swedish families, and I tend to agree with that conclusion. Some researchers have thought that Joseph's wife was Catherine Heath, but I have seen no record or evidence to support that idea.

    Joseph Cantrell and his wife were attending Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church by 1720, and three of their children were baptized there between 1720 and 1726. Joseph and his family probably lived in the Wilmington area of Delaware until the 1730's. They are said to have been in Orange Co., Virginia, in 1738, and possibly lived there until about 1750.

    At that time the proprietor of the Granville District in North Carolina was opening that area for settlement and offering good land at low prices. Many families traveled down the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia into North Carolina, and Joseph Cantrell and several of his children were apparently among those who made this journey. No will or estate settlement for Joseph Cantrell has been found in Delaware or in North Carolina, but he is thought to have died in North Carolina.

    The 1755 tax list of Orange Co., North Carolina, shows Joseph's son John Cantrell with two taxable white males. Since John's sons were under 12 years old, it seems likely that joseph Cantrell was the other male, and that he was living with his son John at that time. Joseph probably died in the 1760's, but no record has been found of his death. Joseph and Catharina are thought to have had ten or more children.

    From material prepared by Eddy and Glenda Harrel - Reference attributed to "Early Families of the North Carolina Counties of Rockingham and Stokes with Revolutionary Service", compiled and published by members of James Hunter Chapter, National Society, Daughter of American Revolution of Madison, North Carolina, published 1977:

    Joseph spent his early boyhood in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Joseph and Catharina lived in New Castle County, Pennsylvania on or near the site of the present city of Wilmington, Delaware, and were attendants at Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church before 1720. Their first three children were baptised at the old historical church, known as Old Swedes, which is one of the oldest and quaintest churches in this country.

    Joseph was probably a farmer in these lower counties of Pennsylvania, which later became part of Delaware. A published work of the wills in the county of New Castle fails to reveal a will of Joseph or Catharina. It is possible that Joseph accompanied some of the sons on the move south to North Carolina. In 1752 and 1753, son John was taxed for two white polls in Orange County, North Carolina. One may have been his father. A complete list of the children of John and Catharina has never been found. The nine children listed were compiled from family records and the court and county records of Orange County North Carolina. The sixth child (a female, name unknown) was born about 1722.

    Christina Parish was mostly situated on both sides of Christina Creek, partly on both sides of Brandywine Creek in New Castle County and in the Hundreds of New Castle, Christina and Brandywine. It stretched two Swedish miles in length, and one in breadth. The most remote families of the parish were not more than six and a half English miles distance from the church. The city of Wilmington is built on the Swedish "church land" and the charter for the town was granted on 1735. At the time Joseph Cantril went there, it was known as Christina.

    Many of the earliest records of this locality have been lost, or destroyed, and at best are very incomplete. There is evidence, however, from the scattered records in New Castle County today, that descendents of Richard Cantril lived there from before 1720 until 1797, though the majority moved south during this period.

    A published work of the wills and probates of New Castle County during the period of Joseph's residence there fails to reveal his will or probate. As he was a man in his 50s when his sons moved south to Carolina, it can be assumed that he made the move with his sons. In the tax list submitted to the Orange County Court, North Carolina for the year 1754, his son John's household listed two taxable white males. As John's sons were under 16 years of age, it can be assumed that one of these was his father, Joseph.

    Joseph Cantrell was born about 1695 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and after reaching manhood moved to the “lower counties of Pennsylvania” that later became the state of Delaware. He married Catharina (surname unknown) about 1718, and they were living in New Castle County, Pennsylvania, near the present city of Wilmington, Delaware, and before 1720, were attendants at Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church. Catharina was probably the daughter of one of the original Old Swedes families who first settled on the Swedish “church land.” From the Holy Trinity records of 1697 to 1773, which were translated from Swedish to English in 1890, we find that Joseph and Catharina had three children baptized there in the 1720s. They were Hannah, John and Joseph.

    At the time Joseph Cantrell settled there, the town was known as Christina, which was mostly situated on both sides of Christina Creek, partly on both sides of Brandywine Creek in New Castle County, and in the Hundreds of New Castle, Christina and Brandywine. The most remote families of the parish were not more than six and a half miles from the church. The city of Wilmington, Delaware was built on Swedish “church land.” The charter for the town was granted in 1735.

    There aren’t any further records of Joseph or Catharina in the remaining records of Delaware, but from the records of Jefferson County, West Virginia, we know that in 1738, Joseph and his brother, Zebulon, were involved in a lawsuit in Orange County, Virginia. The libel suit brought against 54 defendants for “signing a scandalous paper reflecting on the Complaintiff” by Rev. William Williams (Presbyterian) occurred on July 27, 1738. It was filed at the Orange County, Virginia courthouse. Both Joseph and Zebulon were listed as "other defendants." The events that were described in the suit probably happened somewhere between Winchester, Virginia and what is now Martinsburg, West Virginia, which is where the Rev. Williams lived.

    While living in New Castle County, Joseph's son, Isaac Cantrell, became associated with the Welsh Tract Baptist Church located at the foot of Iron Hill, in Pencader Hundred. It is the oldest Primitive Baptist church in America, and Isaac was probably licensed to preach by this group. As the Church was composed of Welsh People, the preaching for about one hundred years was in the Welsh language. Isaac’s mother, Catharina, was more than likely of Swedish parentage, but we know for certain that his grandmother, Dorothy Jones, was born in Wales. The Welsh language is not just a dialect of English; it is a language with an older pedigree, and a distinct one. Isaac Cantrell would have to have been fluent in the Welsh language to have been a member of this church in the 1700s.

    A record of Isaac’s brother Zebulon being a witness to the will of Thomas Edmond on July 21, 1758, is among the Welsh Tract Baptist Church records, and lends further evidence that the Cantrells were early members of this church.

    About 1747, many of the Cantrells as well as allied families joined a large caravan in the movement southward. They moved along the Great Wagon Road down through the Great Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Within view to the west of the Valley rose the Alleghenies and to the east were the Blue Ridge Mountains. From Roanoke, the Wagon Road went through the Staunton Gap and on south to the Piedmont Plateau of the Carolinas. They settled in the "Land of Eden" Granville County, North Carolina, which became Orange County in September 1752. Later, in 1785, this part of Orange County became Rockingham County.

    In the tax list submitted to the Orange County Court for the year of 1754, John Cantrell was listed as having two taxable white males. It is possible that one of the males may have been his father Joseph. Isaac received a land grant for 202 acres of land in Orange County on November 13, 1756. Isaac sold this land to his brother John on 13 Mar 1759.

    I have created this memorial in honor and memory of Joseph and his descendants at Old Swedes Church where he was a member and several of his children were baptized. He was my husband's 5th great grandfather.

    For Lord's sake take the Hannah Haynes junk out of your file. That was a rumor that I started 25 years ago and have lived to regret. John "Snow Shoe" and Hannah Hanes Heath did not have, I repeat. Did not have a daughter Catherine among their 10 or 12 children.

    Diane,

    Please, please remove all information from your files that Catherine was a daughter of John "Snow Shoe" and Hannah Haynes Heath. That was a ruor that I started 25 years ago and have long regretted. John and hannah did not and I repeat did not have a dau. named Catherine. Futher there is not proof that Catherine was a Heath. That was a rumor that Nobel Bethel started in 1928.
    His opinion was based on the 1747 will of John Heath that named a cousin, Alice Cantrell as an heir. john and Hanah Haynes Heath never left MA or Conn.

    "It is probable that Catherine was the daughter of one of the Old Swedes, first settlers of the section. Her first three children were baptized in the Old Swedes Church. At this time the location was called Christiana. Several of Richard Cantrill's descendents lived there between 1720-1797."

    Warren G. Cantrell STRONGLY DISAGREES that Catherine is daughter of John & Hannah Haines Heath. Warren notes that there were five HEATH families in the Philadelphia area and posits, "Why would he marry a girl from MA which was so far away"...2 Sep 1995.

    It is interesting to note that her first child, a girl, was named, "Hannah" (after her mother?) and her second child, a son, named, "John" (after her father?)

    About Richard L Cantrill


    Richard L. Cantrill of Charles City, Virginai was born in March 1666 and died May 13, 1753. He was a member of the Church of England, and married Dorothy Jones, a Quaker from Wales, against family wishes in 1693 in Philadelphia. Richard was a friend of William Penn. He was also founder of the first brick factory in this country with his partner, Daniel Peggy. They built the first brick house in Philadelphia. -------------------- Name: Richard Cantrill 2

    Sex: M

    Birth: 13 MAY 1660 in Derbyshire County, England

    Death: 31 MAY 1753 in Philadelphia, PA

    Note:

    Richard's shire of birth was established from a petition that he submitted to John Blackwell, Esq., governor of the Province of Pennsylvania, in July of July of 1689 stating that his nephew, Joseph Cantril had drowned in the Schuykull River, 10 May 1689, and that Joseph had older and younger brother's in Derbyshire, England. He posted a bond of one hundred pounds.

    This document is on file at the register of Wills, City Hall Philadelphia. Pa. Admin. book A page 66, file no. 54.

    It is known from the tax records of Derbyshire that there were several Cantril (Cantrell) family's living in the area at the time of Richards birth. In 1986 a researcher found one Richard Cantril's Baptismal record in Derbyshire, England with the parents listed as Richard and Alice Cantril. This Richard was born on May 13, 1666 in the Parish of Bakewell. In the nearby Parish of Ashover there is another record of a Joseph Cantril's christening, recorded as 23 Dec, 1666. He was the son of William and Elizabeth Cantril. Last there is a family listed by the name of Richard and Mary Cantril in Bakewell Parish in 1694 and 97. Any one of these could be our set of missing parents.

    According to land records and family lore Richard was thought to be a Brick Mason and possibly operated a brickyard in PA. No record has been found at this time of either a Richard or Joseph Cantril's immigration in the 1680s. It is said by some that he erected the first brick house in the city of Pa. but no record has been found to establish this fact. It is known that the house belong to one Robert Turner and was built on the SW corner of Front and Mulberry (arch) street. From a letter written by Mr.Turner to William Penn dated August 3, 1685, " And since I built my brick house the foundation of which was laid ar they going..."

    The next record of Richard and Dorothy is in the 1703 Delaware court records found among the grand jury presentments.

    Dorothy Cantril , presented for masking in men's cloths the day after Christmas. Walking and dancing in the house of John Simes at 9 or 10 at night. John Simes who gave the masquerade party was presented for keeping a disorderly house,

    " A nursery of de botch ye inhabitants and youth of this city.. to ye grief of and disturbance of peaceful minds and propagating ye throne of wickedness amongst us."

    From a will and burial records four children can be verified as Richards. There is a Jane ??? and Mary Price mentioned in the will who might also be children.

    PENNSYLVANNIA ARCHIVES A RECORD OF LAND.

    Caveat against surveying of land adjoining Richard Cantrill's estate, issuing to the heirs or executors of said Richard Cantrill, or any under him, 31 May, 1753. As the two son's of Richard left the New Castle area in the late 1720's or early 1730 and moved to the valley of Virginia by 1738, Richard may have also made the move

RICHARD1 Cantrell, (RichardB), b abt 1666 Bakewell Parish, Derbyshire, England d bef 31 May 1753 Pennsylvania. m abt 1693 Dorothy Jones b ca 1672 Flint or Denbigh, Wales dau of Ellis Jones and Jane ____. Richard's baptism was on 13 May 1666 in Bakewell Parish, Derbyshire, England.

    Bakewell Parish was a brickmaking area, and very likely Richard grew up in the brickmakings trade. He was a brickmaker in Philadelphia after he moved to Pennsylvania.

    He probably left England around 1687, sometime after he reached the age of 21.

    Quite possibly he came in the company of his nephew Joseph Cantrell, who was about his age. Joseph drowned in the Schuykill River at Philadelphia on 10 May 1689. Richard Cantrell, his uncle and nearest of kin in Pennsylvania, was appointed administrator of Joseph's estate. Richard's occupation of brickmaker was well suited to Philadelphia, where almost every building was made of brick. The city was planned, laid out in a logical pattern, and was well regulated from its beginning. Pennsylvania Archives, Vol XIX, 6 July 1692, shows that Richard Cantrell was granted a request for a warrant for a lot of 30 feet on Third Street near the Buyring Ground. Probably this same lot was sold the next year.

    Original Records, Deed Book D, 53, p 50, records that on 13 May 1693, Richard Cantrell sold to Thomas Hall, 30 by 190 feet at Third and Market Streets. Richard is thought to have married about 1693, and a few years later he apparently settled into what became his permanent home.

    Patent Book A, Vo. II, p 344 contains a lease made on 5 May 1702, by the Governor of Pennsyvania for a lease of 21 years on more than three acres between Fifth and Sixth Street "to Richard Cantrill, Brickmaker," the rent to be 40 shillings per year. Certain requirements were made: "Said Richard Cantrill shall build, erect, and set up a substantial brick house one story and a half in height and in breadth eighteen feet and in length thrirty-six feet....said Richard Cantrill sshall make an orchard upon some part of the hereby granted land, with at least eighty good bearing apple trees planted thereon, and shall also well and sufficiently fence and enclose the said demised land." No disposition of the estate of Richard has been found in the records, and dates of death for hima and his wife are uncertain.

    Apparently he had died by 31 May 1753, when the Pennsylvania Archives mention Richard Cantrill's estate. Richard married about 1693 Dorothy Jones. Dorothy was born aborn in 1672 in Wales and came to Pennsylvania with her parents in the ship "Submission" in 1682. She was the third of four children of Ellis and Jane Jones, who were Quakers and had come to America to escape religious persecution. Since Richard Cantrell was not a Quaker, he and Dorothy were married "out of meeting", as the Quaker term goes.

    Their apparent first child died, and the Race Street meeting house records list under Burial os Those Not Friends, "Mary, 1-6, 1695, parents Richard and Dorothy Cantrill." Dorothy Jones Cantrell is said to have gone so far from her Quaker upbringing that she attended a masquerade ball in Philadelphia, and she was apparently fond of social events. Dorothy and Richard Cantrell, as city dwellers, had what was probably an easier life than many of their descendants would have when they moved to the frontier communities of the Carolinas and Tennessee.

    As shown by the will of Dorothy's mother, Jane Jones, Richard and Dorothy Jones Cantrell had four known children: + 2.

    i. Mary2 Cantrell b abt 1694 burial 6 Jan 1695 Race Street Meeting House, Philadelphia, PA. + 3.

    iii. Zebulon2 Cantrell b abt 1697 Philadelphia, PA, and appears on the tax list in Chester Co., Pennsylvania, in 1718. He was a cordwainer, or shoemake, by occupation. Zebulon moved later into the Welsh Tract district in New Castle County (now Delaware). There he was a witness to a will in 1758. In 1763 he bought 200 acres of land there. Family tradition says that he and his son Joseph moved to Botetourt Co., Virginia, befor the Revolutionary War. + 5.
    iv. Dorothy2 Cantrell b abt 1710, was living and unmarried when her grandmother Jane Jones made her will in 1730. No further information..

    I have searched this list extensively, and other places as well, and after sifting through everything, I have come up with the following as the most likely information regarding Richard and his family. I am looking for input as to error and also as to filling in missing pieces.

    Richard Cantrill, most likely born 1660 in Derbyshire, England. (Possibly 1666, but less likely.) Died 31 May 1753 in Philadelphia.

    Married 5 Mar 1693 in Philadelphia to Dorothy Jane Jones. She was born 1672 in Denbigh, Flint, Wales, arriving in Philadelphia in 1682 on the ship Submission with her family. She was 10 years old at the time. She died 30 Aug 1755 in Philadelphia.

    They had five children: (I know there are other numbers listed, but these seem most likely. I am willing to consider other info if we can find some kind of documentary support.)

    1- Mary born 1694 in Philadelphia. She died 1 Jun 1695 (some say Jan 6, but I feel better about the June date). I would love to know what caused her death.

    2 - Joseph born 1695 in Philadelphia. He died probably sometime after 1753 in Orange County, North Carolina.

    3 - Mary, born about 1696 in Philadelphia. She is the one who is most questioned. However, based on the fact that a child was often named after a child that had died, and the fact that the mother of Dorothy named a Mary Price in her will, I have chosen to side with those who think this is probably their child. I could really use some documents on this one.

    4 - Zebulon, born 1697 in Philadelphia.

    5 - Dorothy, born 1699, in Philadelphia.

    I do not have death dates and those would really be helpful. In addition, I have no information as to spouses of these children, other than Joseph, who is my husband's direct line.

    There seem to be land records listing Richard in 1692, 1693, 1701, 1702 and again in either 1701 or 1702 when he leased the 3 acres. Other than the mask party in 1703 which caused such a scandal, I have not found any more references to them. Does anyone have more?

    I don't want to get into opinions here, but would really like help in trying to find the truth. So many of you have so much info that I am hoping you can help fill in the missing parts.

    Someone once told me that genealogy could be about skeletons (just the names, dates and places) or the skeletons could be fleshed out into real people. That is what I am trying to do. I want to know who these people really were and how they lived.

    Anyway, thanks for any help.

    Dorothy Cantril , presented for masking in men's cloths the day after Christmas. Walking and dancing in the house of John Simes at 9 or 10 at night. John Simes who gave the masquerade party was presented for keeping a disorderly house, " A nursery of de botch ye inhabitants and youth of this city.. to ye grief of and disturbance of peaceful minds and propagating ye throne of wickedness amongst us."

    From a will and burial records four children can be verified as Richards. There is a Jane ??? and Mary Price mentioned in the will who might also be children.

Dorothy was 10 when she arrived. The Jones family were Quakers, so by marrying someone from the Church of England, Dorothy had married "out of meeting," to use the Quaker term.

    Surname: Cantrell

    This very interesting name is early medieval and job descriptive, and refers to a bellman, one who rang the 'Chanterelles' - the trebles, or who sang the treble in a choir. The derivation is from the Olde French, the word being introduced by the Normans after 1066. There are at least five modern alternative spellings including Chantrell, Chantrill, Cantrell, Cantrill and Cantwell, sometimes the name is a diminutive meaning 'Son of Cant or Chant'. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Philip Canterel which was dated 1203, in the "Staffordshire Assize Court" during the reign of King John, known as "Lackland", 1199 - 1216. Surnames became necessary when governments introduced personal taxation. In England this was known as Poll Tax. Throughout the centuries, surnames in every country have continued to "develop" often leading to astonishing variants of the original spelling.

    Notes:

    The Jones family came from either Denby or Flint, Wales. They sailed to America on the Submission, the last of the 23 ships which brought Quakers to Pennsylvania in 1682. The Submission sailed on September 6, 1682, but unfortunately for the passengers, landed on Chesapeake Bay instead of Philadelphia. On October 19 they had noticed the smell of pine trees and on November 2 landed at Choptank on Maryland's Eastern shore. (Capt. James Settle didn't keep a log for the last days of the voyage; it's quite likely that he didn't know where he was.) Left to get to Pennsylvania on their own, most of the passengers walked about 40 miles to Appoquinimink, the lowest section of New Castle County, and 20 miles from the town of New Castle. Ellis Jones, along with several other passengers, lived in Bucks County, PA in 1684.

    He was listed among the servants aborad the Submission and was called "the Govern's miller" when he sold 20 acres to Richard Miles in Radnor Township, Bucks County. (Date not known.) Ellis is listed as a weaver of Nantele in a survey of Radnorshire land owners; he is credited with 100 acares. Another record lists him as buying land in Chester County.

    Voyage log of the ship, "Submission"

    The voyage was rough. Some days were calm and misty. More were described as rough, cold and stormy. A few were described as “faire”. Imagine you were sailing to the New World with young children of 13, 12, & 10 years old plus an infant in your care.

    Highlights from the ship’s log:

    September 12th: “left sight of Cape Cleare” – Ireland’s southernmost island, and likely the final view of European land.

    They saw two or three whales. The first one was only at a distance. The next day, on September 17th: “A whale came neare us & appeared fair to us & followed us some time.” I bet the kids thought that was cool.

    The day after, on the 18th of September “there arose a Great Storm . . . the sea was exceedingly high ye waves ran as high as the main yards but we received little damage.” (A yard is the horizontal spar to which the sails are attached. Big waves.)

    October brought severe multi-day storms. October 2nd:

    “The sea very rough, the wind high…. A great head sea broke over the ship & staved the boat & took the most part of it away, broke up the main hatches that were both nailed & corked & took them away that they were not seen where they went, broke the boat’s mast & hyst that were lashed in the midship, broke the gunnell head in the midship & broke the forre shet & took severall things of the decks & severall things that were in the boat it cast betwixt decks. … A great sea fell on our Rudder and broke it about one yard or something more from the head …”

    They buried one of their friends’ children at sea that day.

    The voyage continued.

    October 9th: “Faire wether and wind, hundreds of porpoises about the ship some leaped high out of the water and followed the ship about an hour.”

    They kept sailing west. Some days brought good weather. Others didn’t. Most were cold. Once a wind from the south brought warm air. For several days it rained.

    Then, near the end of the journey, the rain cleared. On October 19th they couldn’t see land yet but the wind blew from the west and they could smell the pine trees of the New World.

    The travelers made shore at Choptank, Maryland on November 2nd, according to a record kept by Quaker shipmate Phineas Pemberton.

    The captain’s official log ends without a conclusion. The last entry is the 7th day of the week on October 21st. The storms had blown the ship off-course and it was overcast; the captain may not have known exactly where he was. Some say that’s why he did not finish the record.

    The Submission was one of 22 ships, including William Penn’s “Welcom” that brought the first 2,000 people – mostly Quakers – to the brand new Pennsylvania Colony in 1681 and 1682

    Notes:

    14 Jan 2014: Comments: Think I hit send a bit prematurely on my earlier email. Another researcher, Julie A DeSoignie, claims a marriage record exists for Henry Cantrell & Margaret Shaw 11 Oct 1640, Kniveton, Derbyshire, England. So it would have been Henry's father, William Jr, who came in 1608 with Capt John Smith. I just watched a National Geographic special on the first group to come with Capt John Smith to Jamestown. I thought it said it was in 1608. I understood no women came with that expedition so if William was among the first group, he returned to England. That makes sense as Henry was born 1616 in England. I'll do a bit more on the history of that expedition so I understand it in relation to Henry. Still would like to hear your rationale for Henry's ancestors. Charline

    Notes:

    Cantrell Coat of Arms/Nobility

    Let me start by saying that the Coat of Arms is granted to a man and is handed down to his male heirs, oldest to youngest, with it changing a little per age of son. The Cantrell/Cantrill Coat of Arms was recorded in the Heraldica of Richard III as belonging to Lord Thomas Cantrill, 1st Duke of Norfolk. We were noble long before this time though. The Cantrell family was a part of the Norman Invasion of 1066. We were a Norman Noble family from the region of Chanterelle in Normandy. So, even though I love the stories that I read about us being bell ringers, they simply are not true. Now with a little history behind our family, I shall move on.

    The Coat of Arms does not belong to every Cantrell/Cantrill. It is only passed on down the male line of His Grace Lord Thomas, Duke of Norfolk. It is not nor has it ever been a family item. I appologise if this hurts some feelings out there, but it is the truthe and that is what we are all here for. I have researched the Cantrell/Cantrill family for almost 10 years. I do not know everything yet I feel that I am very knowledgable in the area. If anyone would like to share any information I am always happy to meet cousins from distant and different lines of the Cantrell/Cantrill family.

    Respectfully,

    His Grace Lord George Cantrell, 11th Duke of Norfolk,16th Earl of Stirling

    Also, I would like to reitterate that we are of Norman descent not French. At the time of the Norman Conquest of 1066, Normandy was a stand alone country. It was shortened from North Men, which if we look for means Viking not French.
