    STANFIELD FAMILY FROM ENGLAND TO CHESTER COUNTY, PA

    Deborah Stanfield m. 1701 Richard Woodward, Jr.

    Francis Stanfield from Garten, Cheshire, England, arrived in Chester County, Pennsylvania, aboard the Endeavor in the 7th month, 1683, with his wife, Grace and their children: James, Mary, Sarah, Elizabeth, Grace and Hannah. With them on board were servants Isaiah Brookeby, William Rudway and Thomas Massey (who later settled in Marple).

    Francis and Grace Stanfield died in Marple, Chester County, PA. before 1700.

    --------------------------
    Deborah Stanfield Woodward died probably before 1737 and perhaps earlier. At the marriage of son James Woodward to Ann Pyle at Concord Monthly Meeting on 21 April 1737, Richard Woodward signed the marriage certificate as parent but Deborah was not in attendance and may have been deceased. The same could be said for the marriage of William and Eliza Marshall Woodward in 1733 where Deborah is also not in attendance. This is not necessarily definitive as people could also be too ill to attend or have small children to care for. She was definitely deceased at least a year before Richard's marriage to Susannah Cureton as the waiting period would have been enforced where Richard had no small children to care for.

    Children:
    1. WOODWARD, Grace was born in in Chester County, Pennsylvania.
    2. 5. WOODWARD, Jane was born about 1708 in Chester County, Pennsylvania.

    Mary Baily m. 1756 Caleb Hayes
    Abigail Hayes m. James Millison, Jr.

    Mary Bailey, daughter of Thomas and Sarah Bailey, married Caleb Hayes and was the mother of Abigail Hayes Millison.

    William Bayly was born about 1540 in Parish of Bromham, Wiltshire, England, and died November 22, 1575 in Parish of Bromham, Wiltshire, England. He married Mary (possibly Fisher).

    Their child, Thomas Baily, was born 1567 in Parish of Bromham, Wiltshire, England, and died in Parish of Bromham, Wiltshire, England. He married (1) Ann before 1601 in parish of Bromham, Wiltshire, England. He married (2) Jane 1605 in Bromham, Wiltshire, England.

    Daniel Baylie, son of Thomas, was born 1601 in Chitto, Parish of Bromham, Wiltshire England, and died April 1674 in Chitto, Parish of Bromham, Wiltshire, England. He married Mary.

    Their son, Joel Baily, was born 1658 in Parish of Bromham, Wiltshire, England, and died 1732 in Chester County, PA. He was the immigrant who married Ann Short on February 11, 1686/87 in PA, daughter of Miriam Ingram.

    Thomas Baily, son of Joel, was born about 1700 in Aston, Chester, PA, and died about 1764 in Newlin Twp., Chester, PA. He married Sarah Bentley about 1734 in Chester Co., PA, daughter of John Bentley and Mary Miles.

    It was their daughter, Mary Baily, who was born in Chester Co., PA. She married Caleb Hayes November 20, 1756 in Swede's Church, Wilmington, DE, son of Joseph Hayes and Jean Woodward. Their children were Isaac, Anne, Caleb, Abigail, Ellis and Ruth.

    Abigail Hayes, d/o Caleb Hayes and Jean Woodward, married James Millison, Jr., s/o James Millison and Grace Woodward (1/2 sister to Jean Woodward). They moved to Washington County, Pennsylvania, and are responsible for almost all the Millisons who lived in that county and later in Belmont County, Ohio, by the next generation. Their daughter, Abigail Millison, married John Henry Carver, Jr. [Pat Walker]

    Joel married SHORT, Ann after 1 Apr 1687 in Chester County, Pennsylvania. [Group Sheet]


  6. 13.  SHORT, Ann (daughter of INGRAM, Miriam).

    Notes:

    She and Joel Baily were named in a deed on 8 September 1713 Chester County, PA, by which 50 acres was conveyed to Thomas Dutton.

    -------------------------------
    Ann is generally accepted as one of the passengers who accompanied William Penn to Pennsylvania on the ship "Welcome". One of the most completely researched works states it is "highly probable" than Ann Short was such a passenger. George F. McCracken, The Welcome Claimants Proved Disproved and Doubtful: With An Account of Some of their Descendants (Publication of the Welcome Society of Pennsylvania, No. Genealogical Pub. Co, 1970). The argument is as follows: Isaac Ingram, a proven passenger on the “Welcome" died en route. In his will he left to "my Sister Miriam Short lately deceased her three Children Adam, Miriam, & Anne Short all that Thirty pounds lying in Ambrose Riggs hand...to be equally divided between them (viz) Tenn pounds apiece further it is my will & minde that my Sisters Children aforesaid have all the goods on board the Welcome equally divided between them". The assumption is made, as there was no provision for the sale of the goods on board for transport of the proceeds to England, those named were also on board the ship.
            Other circumstantial evidence is that Miriam Short [Ann’s sister] is recorded as a resident of Chester County shortly after the “Welcome" arrived, and married George Thompson, a proven passenger.
            William Penn was aboard the same ship as the Shorts. In July, 1682, the ship's master, Robert Greenway, began to load the ship in preparation for the trip. In August newspaper articles noted that Penn had “taken leave" of his friends and was preparing to board the “Welcome" to make the trip in the company of five other ships. On September 2nd another paper noted that Penn had sailed two days earlier with "a great many Quakers" to settle "Pensilvania". During the trip many of the passengers suffered from smallpox, and approximately 30 died, including the above mentioned Isaac Ingram (and perhaps Miriam Short, the mother of Ann, as she is "late deceased" per Isaac’s will). Records of the Court of New Castle on Delaware, Book B, p. 437, note the following: "On the 27th day of October 1682; arrived before yr Towne of New Castle in Delowar from England William Penn Esqr. Proptry of Penlivinia... ye said William Penn Received possession of ye Towne of New Castle ye 28th of Octobr 1682."

    The Beginnings at Laurel
    Hephzibah Baptist Church is celebrating it’s 290th anniversary the 3rd weekend in May, 2010. The prominent Chester County historians Futhey and Cope describe Hephzibah’s humble beginnings in their book “History of Chester County, Pennsylvania” in the following way:

    “About 1720, Rev. Owen Thomas, who had come from Wales… in 1707, was the first Baptist minister laboring regularly in Newlin Township. He preached at John Bentley’s house. After the death of John Bentley the meetings were held at the house of his son, Jeffrey Bentley, who in 1752 gave a lot of ground and built a meeting house.”

    That meeting house is gone now but the cemetery associated with it still exists just three miles down the road just across the Brandywine. This was the original site for the gatherings of Baptist believers who would years later re-locate to our present site on Hephzibah hill.
