We now have three genealogy files on this site: our main database which is a combined ‘Ives-Leedom’ tree, plus two additional working trees with so-far unconnected people I've found along the way, ‘Leedoms-unknown’ and ‘Netherlands-unknown’. All of the Search results will identify which tree contains the individual or place in question.

Different sources sometimes have conflicting information and there are undoubtedly a few typographical errors in here as well. Please feel free to send us any corrections to errors you may find in our files. Additions are always welcome too!

      John Lancaster, unmarried, "Came about ten years agoe out Cumberland and into this nation (his parents being deceased) and was convinced of Truth amongst us about three years after." Dated 4 mo. 3, 1711, from Mo. Mtg. of Mountmellick, Ireland. Received 1 mo. 26, 1714. - Quaker Arrivals at Philadelphia 1682-1750 by Albert Cook Myers, p. 60

      A John Lancaster married Sarah Breintnall in 1714 in Philadelphia:
      Sarah Breintnall, remaining daughter [of David Breintnall and Jane Blanchard], married, July 22, 1714, John Lancaster. - Colonial families of Philadelphia, p. 1374

      Their marriage certificate is recorded in Philadelphia MM records.

      Breintnall. City of Philadelphia. Shopkeeper. 2 Oct 1731. 30 Dec 1732. E.207.
      Children: David, Joseph, Jane Harper, John, Hannah, Sarah Lancaster. Son-in-Law: John Harper. Grandchildren: Mary and Hannah Harper, Jane, Hester, Sarah and Anne Breintnall, David, Mary, Rachel and Elizabeth Breintnall, Jane, Thomas, John and Sarah Lancaster. Monthly Meeting of Quakers. Exec: John Breintnall. Asst. Exec: William Monington. Wit: Richard Armitt, Samuel Mickle, Wm. Monnington.

      Their 1714 marriage is too late for them to be the parents of Thomas Lancaster who died in 1750 at the age of forty-five unless Thomas' age as death is very understated.
