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

October 1734, Massachusetts

October 5, 1734- Margaret Wetmore (also known as Margaret Whitmore) dies at the age of 66 in Woburn, Middlesex, Massachusetts.
She was born 1668 to Francis Whitmore & Margaret Harty. Margaret married Thomas Carter, a husbandman who was given considerable lands by his father, in 1682. Thomas survived her and would go on to live until the ripe old age of 99.

(Margaret Wetmore is my first cousin 10 times removed. Our common ancestor is John Whitmore. 
 John Whitmore was killed by an Indian in 1648. This act was not an act of private hatred, but seems to have been the deed of the whole tribe, and the colony was moved to unite with that of New Hampshire in a just revenge. Colonial Records of Connecticut and Trumbull's Colonial Recollections: 'This courte, taking into serious consideration what may be done according to God in way of revenge of the bloude of John Whitmore, late of Stamford, and well weighing all circumstances, together with the carriages of the Indians (bordering thereuppon) in and about the premises: doe declare themselves that they do judge it lawful and according to God to make a war uppon them.' A committee was sent to New Haven the next day to confer with the rest of the magistrates, and 'return with what convenient speed they may.' Trumballs Col. Rec. Vol.1, pg. 197 )

September 1734, Pennsylvania

Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
September 14, 1734- My seventh great grandaunt, Jane Potts, dies at the age of 66 in Philadelphia. Jane was born in Wales to Thomas Potts and Elizabeth Baset.
Jane came to Philadelphia in 1683 with her widowed mother. They came as indentured servants. Among the early settlers who came into Pennsylvania were a very large number who were denominated as Servants. The liberal terms offered by Penn, greatly increased the number of those who came in this capacity, as they received 50 acres of headland, when their time expired, the same as others. The term did not necessarily imply a menial, but included mechanics, farm hands, agents, etc., employed by others, and were frequently relatives and those of equal social position. Sometimes their passage was paid in consideration of a specified term of service. On December 7, 1684, Jane's mother Elizabeth was granted 100 acres of headland in Chester County. They were Quakers and in 1685 were under the care of the Philadelphia Monthly Meeting.
In 1686, Jane married Quaker John Austin, a shipwright, at the home of her mother and stepfather, Edmund Bennett, in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. John preceded Jane in death about 1708.
Jane Austin, being 'weak in body but sound mind and memory,' made her will December 26, 1733, and died September 14, 1734. The will is recorded in Will-Book E, page 309, at Philadelphia. She mentions son Samuel Austin; daughters Ann Robins, Elizabeth Chanel and Mary; grandchildren John Robbins, Mary Robins, John Austin, John Wood.
The executors were George Fitzwater, Anthony Morris, and Jacob Shoemaker. Witnesses, Ezekiel Potts and John White.

September 14, 1734- Nathan Cleaver is born to Peter Cleaver, Jr. and Elizabeth Potts in Upper Dublin Township, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania.


September 30, 1734- William Hallowell is born to William Hallowell & Margaret Tyson in Abington Township, Pennsylvania.

John Penn
September 1734- John Penn arrives at Philadelphia with his sister Margaret Penn and her husband Thomas Freame, and attends the meetings of the Pennsylvania Provincial Council. John returned to London in a year, to support the colony's rights in the boundary dispute over Maryland with Lord Baltimore, but Thomas Penn and the Freames remained at Philadelphia.The ultimate resolution of this dispute was the surveying of the Mason-Dixon Line. John Penn, his brother Thomas, and their agents were responsible for the infamous "Walking Purchase", which swindled the Lenape Indians out of more than one million acres of Pennsylvania.

Thomas Freame had come over earlier, probably in 1732, and had returned to England. With some persuasion his wife Margaret Penn now accompanied him to Pennsylvania. She finally returned to England in 1741 with her brother Thomas.
Thomas Penn had established himself at Philadelphia in a residence between Bush Hill and the Schuylkill, with grounds esteemed handsome in that day, and long known as the " Proprietor's Garden."
Hannah Callowhill Penn
(John Penn was a proprietor of colonial Pennsylvania. He was the eldest son of the colony's founder, William Penn, by his second wife, Hannah Callowhill Penn. He was their only child born in Philadelphia, and was called "the American" by his parents.)
