  • Notes 
    • II. Mary Barnard, [Sarah,- Jeremiah,] daughter of Thomas and Sarah (Carter) Barnard, was twice married. She first married John Hewes, second son of William* and Mary (Withers) Hewes, of Chichester, 22, 11 mo. 1746-7. He was a Tanner by trade and seems to have resided in Chichester township. He owned land in Chichester, and in Douglass township, Berks county. The will of John Hewes, of Chichester, tanner, is re- corded at West Chester. It was made 2 Feb. 1759, and proven 2 March, 1759. He gave the homestead to his wife Mary during her life time and afterwards to his children Christiana and Jacob; also 200 acres in Douglass township, Berks county, purchased of Thomas Barnard, to his wife until his children became of age or married. Other lands in Chichester and in Berks county were to be sold by the executors. He named as executors his wife and Richard Dutton of Aston. He was born about 1716 and died 1759. He lies buried in the graveyard of Chichester Friends Meeting. Mary (Barnard) Hewes married, as her second husband, Archibald Dick, about the year 1760.

      * William Hewes, the father of John, who may be designated as William, 3d, was the son of William, 2d, and Sarah (Bezer) Hewes, who were married in 1689. This couple were married by Friends' ceremony through permission of Chichester and Concord Monthly meeting; but were first subjected to a very quaint and embarrassing exarhmation, as it was stated that "the young man heretofore has been given to be something wild, he ot late years was become more sober." The full minutes of the proceedings can be found in Dr. Smith's History of Del- aware County, page 175 ; or in Martin's History of Chester, page 406. William Hewes, 2d, was the son of William Hewes, ist, who is supposed, according to Dr. Smith, to have come over with John Fenwick from England in 1675, first settled in Salem county. New Jersey, but afterwards, in 1678-9, he settled in Lower Chichester, where he purchased land of Roger Pedrick. He died about 1698. His wife's name was Deborah. They were both active members of Chichester Meeting--" William, ist, being one of the founders of that meeting. The family tradition states that he came from Wales. He built a brick house in Lower Chichester, and on the sill of the front door the letters W. H. were cut. Sarah Bezer, wife of William, 2d, was the daughter of Edward and Ann Bezer. Mary Withers wife of William, 3d, was the daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth (Collet) Withers. William Hewes, 3d, and Mary Withers were married 12, 9 mo. 1713. The following table shows three generations of ancestors of John Hewes.
