Nokes Family Genealogy Forum
William Nookes (Noks) is known from the early 18c Century in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, England from Quaker Records of the births of two of his daughters viz. Ann (31 July 1708) and Mary (7 October 1710). From William's Will of 19 June 1733 written in Chester County, Pennsylvania he had a Wife Ruth and further children Sarah, Susannah, Joseph, Elizabeth, William, Moses, Jane and Thomas. Sarah and Susannah married into Quaker families in Pennsylvania and brother Joseph was a witness at one of them.
We would like to discover:
1. The birth or baptism of William
2. Any emigration records for William (probably c1728)
3. Whether or not all of his family emigrated, for a Moses Nokes (Nookes) married Hanah Bradley at Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, England on 12 May 1760. We cannot prove satisfactorily whether this Moses is the person mentioned in William Nookes' Will.
Any help would be appreciated.
