  • Notes 
    • Samual Foulke was one of the most prominent men in upper Bucks Co, Pennsylvania,
      werving in the Provincial Assembly 1761 to 1768. He worked as a surveyor and
      conveyancer, and transacted a large amount of public business for his neighbors. He was
      clerk of Richland Meeting from its organization in 1742 for thirty years, and an elder until his
      death, notwithstanding the fact that he and his brothers, John Thomas and Theophilus and
      nephew, Everard, were disoened in 1781 for having taken the oath of allegiance, the action of
      the Meeting not being sanctioned by the Yearly Meeting. He translated the "narrative" of his
      grandfather, Edward Foulke from Welsh into English.
