  • Notes 
    • (Research):ELIZABETH BLACKLEDGE4 (William,' Thomas,'- Robert3), daughter of Robert and Joanna (Van Lude) Blackledge, was born in Phil­adelphia in 1765 or 1766, and married at Richland Monthly Meeting, 6 mo. 8, 1786, Eli Kennard, of Plumstead Township, Bucks County, Pa. He was a son of Anthony and Elizabeth Kennard, who were among the early settlers in Bedminster Township. The Kennards were probably of German ancestry, but Anthony Kennard applied for membership in Buckingham Monthly Meeting 5 mo. 2, 1757, and was accepted 8 mo. 1, 1757. His son Eli Kennard removed to Maryland in 1782 taking a certificate to Deer Creek Monthly Meeting dated 5 mo. 6, 1782. His brothers Joseph and Levi Kennard had removed to Deer Creek several years previously. Eli Kennard returned to Bucks County in 1786, bringing a certificate to Buckingham from Deer Creek dated 1 mo. 2, 1786, and two months later took a certificate to Richland to marry Elizabeth Blackledge. They lived until 1791 in Buckingham or Plum­stead. On 8 mo. 1, 1791, Eli Kennard and Elizabeth his wife and four children, William, Hannah, Thomas and Joseph were granted a certificate to Richland Monthly Meeting. [1]
