Janneys of Bucks Co. PA, 1600's-1700's

I have been following this new forum with interest, because I also requested it about 3 months ago, and it has just now appeared.

I have Janney ancestors who lived in Bucks County, PA, in the late 1600's and early 1700's. The family originated in Cheshire, England. The immigrants were Thomas (1633-97) and Margery (Heath) Janney and their children. They had 7 children; 2 died in infancy in England, one died at time and place unknown, the rest came to America. My line continues:

Joseph Janney (1675-1729), m. Rebeckah Biles
Martha Janney (1702/04-?), m. Nicholas Parker

I have the Janney ancestry back to 1530, and I have the names of the children of Thomas, Joseph, and Martha, but no other descendants outside my own line. Some of the last generation moved to Loudoun County, VA., and could be ancestors of some of the Virginia Janneys that are the subject of other queries on this page.

These Janneys were Quakers.

My data are from the LDS Ancestral File and have not been independently verified.
