Janet's Genealogy

MartinII Family

By the preponderant of the law I think that Seth Martin and his wife Francis Halbert (The surname Halbert is also spelled Holbert, Herbert and Hulbert) were the parents of my Great-Great-Grandmother, Margaret Ariel Martin.. Francis parents were William Halbert and Susannah Taylor found here.

A Fact that most times married daughters stay close to parents or family.

Margaret A Martin and Moses L Martin living next door to Seth and Francis Martin in 1850 Census Tishomingo Co., MS. In the same Census William Martin, the one who is Moses father, James P Martin is living near him. So we have James P Martin and Mary W Martin living near his parents. We have Moses and Margaret Martin lived near her parents.

Another Fact

Moses and Margaret Martin did have son named Seth T and daughter named Francis

From Moses L Martin's Bible

5 Seth T Martin born November 11th,1853

2 Francis L J Martin born March 28th,1848.

The T in Seth middle name was TAYLOR

James P Martin also had son Seth T Martin and the T in his middle is TAYLOR James did have son name Francis. There is are two unknown daughters and one of them could have been name Frances.

This would mean that Mary Wilson Martin, wife of James P Martin and Margaret A Martin, wife of Moses Lydall Martin are sister.

Moses Mendenhall, said be Margery Mendenhall Martin's brother

Transcribed From Futhey & Cope's "History of Chester County", pages 652-653:

MARTIN, THOMAS, with Margery (Mendenhall), his wife, came from Bedwin Magna, in Wiltshire, in 1685, bringing children, - Mary, Sarah, Hannah, and Rachel. They settled in Middletown, where their son Moses, and probably other children, were born. We find George and Elinor Martin, for whom we can assign no other parentage. These children married as follows: Mary to James Whitaker, 1690; Sarah to William Shewin; Rachel to Thomas Woodward, 1704; Moses, b. 1/9/1685-6, m. Margaret Battin, in 1714; George, m. Lydia Buffington; Elinor, m. John Scarlet, 1715

George Martin settled in West Bradford, a little northwest of Marshallton, where he died 6/22/1780. His children were Joseph, John, James, George, Rachel (m. to John Hennings), Lydia (m. to James Dilworth,), Mary (m. ---Wood), and Elizabeth (m. to Joseph Passmore and James Chalfant).

Joseph married Hannah Harlan, and had children, - Joseph, Caleb, Rebecca (m. to Joseph Woodward), Hannah (m. to Benjamin Miller), Lydia (m. to John Woodward), Mary (m. to Daniel Leonard). Joseph died about 1802. George Martin, Jr. married Martha, daughter of Abraham and Elizabeth Widdows, who died 9,13, 1808, aged seventy-nine years, six months, and twenty-eight days. George died 4, 11, 1771, aged forty-five years. He lived with his uncle, Joseph Baffington, in the Forks of the Brandywine, or at least his widow remained on the farm for several years after his death. His children were Sarah, b. 1,11,1755; Ruth, b. 1,28, 1757; Lydia, b. 4,3, 1759; Thomas, b. 4,12,1761, d. 8, 24, 1808; George, b. 5,12,1763; Abraham, b. 8.26/2765, d. 4,2,1826. Of these, Thomas married Margaret, daughter of Samuel Pennock, and was the father of Samuel, late of Kennett Square, George, Thomas, Simon, and Abraham. George (3) married Amy Buffington, and lived in Newlin Township. Children, - Martha, Phebe, Curtis, George Thomas, Abraham, Isaac, and Amy. Abraham married Lydia, daughter of Joseph and Rebecca (Martin) Woodward, and lived in Marshallton. Their children were George, Joseph, Abner, and Martha. Of these George was born 1, 9, 1798, but is still an active business man and much interested in local history, with which his memory is well stored. He has long been a store-keeper in the village of Marshallton. Respecting Samuel Martin, of Kennet Square, whose death, on the 17th of 6th month, 1880, resulted from a series of paralytic attacks, we quote from the Kennet Advance: (following paragraphs italicized)

Samuel Martin was born on the 24th of August, 1802, near the Forks of the Brandywine, in what was then Pennsbury township, but which now forms a part of Pocopson. He was the son of Thomas and Margaret Martin, and his mother was the daughter of Samuel Pennock. He early evinced an aptitude for study, and the few leisure periods in his farm-life were given to books. He worked on his father's farm until he had reached the age of twenty-one or thereabouts, when he set out to make his own way in life. By teaching in the winter season he was able to earn money to prosecute his studies the remainder of the year. One of the boarding-schools of that day was conducted by Alexander McKeever, who was at one time located at Gause's Corner, and at this school the subject of this memoir spent a year. In a 824, Mr. Martin, whose first teaching was done in the old stone school building which until recently stood at the cross roads near Joseph Walter's, removed to Kennet Square, which at that time possessed no school of any kind. He taught for a time at the school-house on the Toughkenamon road, nearly opposite John Lamborn's, and it was at this school that he was the teacher of Bayard Taylor. In a short time he established a school in this borough, on East State Street, nearly opposite the Friend's meeting-house. Here he was so successful that he was induced to build Eaton Institute. While he was conducting this flourishing school the United States Bank collapsed and the Pennsylvania Bank suspended. He had considerable of his own, and all the money f some minor children for whom he was guardian, invested in the State bank, and the suspension placed him in a trying position. but he kept his courage, and was far-sighted enough to see that the bank would recover. All the spare cash he was able to get he invested in the stock at a greatly depreciated value, and he soon had the satisfaction of reaping a handsome reward. He early began to aid in the material development of the borough by building and otherwise improving. He was one of the chief promoters of the Baltimore Central Railroad, and subscribed liberally. He purchased considerable land along the projected route, which he built upon from time to time and sold. These building operations he continued to within a year of his death, and almost fifty dwellings, or one-fifth of all the houses here, were erected by him, and many a poor man to-day owes his comfortable home to the liberal spirit of Samuel Martin.

Moses Martin and Margaret (Battin), his wife, had children, - Adam, George, Hannah, Mary, John, Moses, Margaret, Rachel, and Susanna. They removed to Uwchlan prior to 1737, where Moses died before 1740.

John Martin, the son, born 1,3,1718, married Hannah Dilworth, and died in Birmingham, 11,26, 1761, leaving children, - Moses, John, George, Jospeh, and Hannah. The widow married John Woodward, of Thornbury, 3,16, 1763, and was the mother of Thomas Woodward. George Martin, born 6,9,1754, died 7/19/1825, married, 11,28,1776, Elizabeth Reynolds, daughter of Henry and Sarah, and settle in Chichester. Their children were Sarah, b. 9,7,1777, d. 4, 18, 1819, m. John Broomall, and was the mother of Hon. John M. Broomall; Anna, b. 12,28,1778, m. John Powell; Ruth, b. 10,17,1780, d. 1,17, 1878, m. John Sharpless; Beulah, b. 9,27,1782, d. 1,7,1818,m. Enos Sharpless, and was the mother of the late John M. Sharpless of Chester; Lydia, b. 8,20 1784; George, b. 2, 28, 1787, d. 7,26, 1847, father of Dr. George Martin, now of West Chester; Henry, b. 2, 20, 1789, d. 12,9,1791; John

Uwchlan Township

Originally, Penn purchased all this land from the natives in 1683. [See Myers, Albert Cook, William Penn: His Own Account of the Lenni Lenape or Delaware Indians, (Moylan: 1937), p. 93.] It was settled as there was interest, and not deeded to private owners until even later. The procedure followed was for Penn to sell land in bulk without a precise location specified (by patent) and then to issue warrants for survey of particular sections of the land which surveys had to be recorded be

After 1718 the land office virtually closed for fourteen years, and the lack of administrative machinery led to increased squatting by members of all national groups. Even after 1732, when Thomas Penn arrived, it was clear that people would not conform to such an inadequate system. Thomas Penn said that 130,000 of 400,000 acres taken up between 1732 and 1740 had not been warranted by the latter date. [Lemon, James T., The Best Poor Man's Country, (New York:1972), pp. 56-57.]

The Martin family came to Uwchlan Township in the mid-1700's when Thomas Martin, a weaver, acquired a farm, married a widow who was connected to several prominent local families, raised his own children, and supported his Quaker faith by participating in the erection of a meeting house in modern day Lionville. His youngest son John acquired the family farm and owned it until the mid-1800's, when he died childless and it was sold to the Peck family, after whom modern Peck Road was named.

Chapter XXIX

Aston Township

The upper end of the present township of Aston, a tract of one thousand acres, was surveyed to Thomas Brassey in 1684, which subsequently was divided previous to 1710 into smaller farms. A tract of one hundred and nineteen acres bordering on Concord township was surveyed to Thomas Martin, and at this day part of that land is still in the ownership of his descendant, - Thomas Martin. John Pennell also acquired over two hundred acres of the Brassey land, but the farm above the State road, where Mark Pennell now lives, was not a part of the original farm purchased by John Pennell in 1700.

Chapter XLVIII

Newtown Township

The first Seventh-Day Baptist in Pennsylvania is said to have been Abel Noble, who came to the province in 1684, at which time he was a Friend. When George Keith first began to announce his opinions, among the earliest persons to accept his teachings was Noble, and he it was who gave shape to the Keithian Baptist form of religious observances, for which they were distinguished from other societies, - such as distinguishing the days and months by numerical names, adhering to plainness of language and dress, and abstaining from swearing or fighting. On June 28, 1697, Abel Noble baptized Thomas Martin, a public Friend, in Ridley Creek, and afterwards Thomas Martin baptized other Quakers, - Thomas Powell, Evan Harry, Hugh Harry, John Palmer, Judith Calvert, David Thomas, and others, to the number of nineteen in all, - who, on Oct. 12, 1697, were incorporated, and on that day proceeded to choose a minister by lot. Three persons were nominated, - William Buckingham, Thomas Budd, and Thomas qartin, - and the latter was chosen. From 1697 to 1700 other Quakers were baptized, - William Thomas, Richard Buffington, Elizabeth Thomas, Jane Phillips, David Phillips, Elizabeth Hall, Rees Price, and others, - some of whom lived in other parts of the country.

Chapter XLVII Middletown Township.

On Oct. 11-12, 1681, three hundred acres of land were surveyed to John March, part of one thousand acres which he had purchased in England. It is not known whether he ever settled on this tract, but seventy-three acres along Chester Creek, just above Chester township line, on March 1, 1685, was conveyed to Thomas Martin, and doubtless Martin, who emigrated from Bedwin Magna, in Wiltshire, England, accompanied by his wife, Margery, and four daughters, in that year settled on that small plot of ground now belonging to Jonathan Dutton. The seventy-three acres, as also one hundred and four acres adjoining, subsequently became the property of Joseph Cobourn, while that part of the March tract lying east of the Edgmont road, on Jan. 7, 1713, was purchased by Caleb Harrison. Above the March tract, and extending east and west across the township, was a plot of three hundred and fifty acres, surveyed to John Martin Dec. 10, 1682. The northern boundary of John Martin's estate was the road to Knowlton, where that highway enters the great Edgmont road, thence due east and west across the township to the creeks forming the eastern and western boundary. Knowlton is located on this tract. John Martin, who came from Edgcott, in Berkshire, England, settled on the land, and at his death, in 1719, it passed to Thomas Martin, probably his son. Above this tract, going northward along Chester Creek, three hundred and eighty acres of ground were surveyed to Richard Crosby, Nov. 20, 1685. Crosby was from Cheshire (Chestershire), England, and came to the province subsequently to 1683. The following year he was in Chester, and was appointed by the court (1684) one of the collectors to gather the levy for that township. After this tract was taken up by him he settled thereon, and in 1686 was presented by the grand jury "for keeping an unlawful fence to the great damage of John Martin, in his swine," for which ill-doing on his part Crosby was fined thirty shillings at the next court. Crosby figured considerably in the early court records. In his cups he seemed ever to run into quarrels, and if threatened the strong arm of the law he was not chary in his remarks or the expression of his opinion of the sage big-wigs who dispensed justice in the old court-house on Edgmont Street, Chester. On Nov. 29, 1703, Richard Crosby, who had then removed to Ridley, conveyed this property to Nicholas and Katherine Fairlamb. His daughter had married Fairlamb, who was a merchant in Chester.

This was email to me that webpage had mistake in it.

The children of Moses and Margaret (Battin) Martin seem to include Adam, John, Hannah, Mary, Margaret, George, Rachel, Susannah, and Moses.

There might be a mistake in the fact that Hannah married Samuel Battin. Hannah Martin married John Smith ca. 1737, contrary to Friends discipline. Note from Janet: I think there is mistake Hannah husband being John Smith. List below is the marriage of Hannah Martin being Quaker this would marriage would not please the Quaker Elders for they were marry in the PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH but could made a ments by the time they are found in NC On 5mo. 28, 1758 Hannah Smith was granted a certificate by Chester MM, PA to Cane Creek MM, NC.

Rachel Martin, sister of Hannah, married her first cousin, Samuel Battin, in January 1749/50 in Philadelphia. Samuel died in the first part of 1755. Rachel (Martin) Battin m/2 on 9 mo., 19, 1759 at Old Swedes Church in Wilmington, Del., I did find a Samuel Battin will saying that his wife was Rachel but there was not maiden name.
