The Worland Family in America and Beyond

I began my life in the Puget Sound area of Washington State, on an island filled with forests and wild rhododendrons. I was separated from my Worland family there at an early age. Recently, I was reunited with my family and learned of my heritage. And so, this journey to know my ancestors began. The Worlands, Gideons, Newtons, Conards... they were the colonists, the settlers, the pioneers. They fought in the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Civil War. This is their story, and the story of a nation. -Deci Worland MacKinnon

"Reared in the faith of the Society of Friends and a birthright member of Abington Monthly Meeting, he proposed intentions of marriage before that meeting in March, 1727, with Mary, daughter of Thomas and Margaret Maurle, of Bristol township, Philadelphia county, and on April 27, 1727, the proposal was favorably acted upon by the Meeting.

They at once took up their residence on the 500 acres of land purchased by his father in 1709, in Towamencin township, Philadelphia, now Montgomery county, 300 acres of which Abraham inherited at his father's death in 1741. A certificate was granted by Abington Monthly Meeting, April 30, 1728, transferring the membership of Abraham Lucken and wife to Gwynedd Monthly Meeting, with which meeting some of their descendents still hold membership."
