  • Notes 
    • EDWARD BEZER, (330), was doubtless a native of County Wilts, England, Wiltshire Friends records contain entries of his marriage, and births of four of their children. Edward Bezer, of Cannings, and Ann Fry,(*) of Blackland, were married 8 mo. 28, 1664. Their residence at the birth of their first two children is given as Bishops Cannings, and at the birth of the second two as Rowde, which is a few miles distant. They removed to Pennsylvania about 1683, and in 1686 settled in Bethel township, Chester county. In an early list of landowners of Chester county, Edward Bezer is set down as the owner of two 500 acres tracts. He was by trade a mason, and in religion a consistent member of the Society of Friends. In accordance with a late order that Friends should produce certificates, Edward Bezer (& Robert Pyle) "give this meeting satisfaction by a Sertificate & testimony of friends of their honest conversation from whence they came," at Concord Monthly Meeting, 10 mo. 12, 1687. Meetings were sometimes held at his house in Bethel.
