Ancestry of Peter Osborne, Philadelphia 1712

Message #4972 on the Osborne Family Genealogy Forum gives the ancestry (fully sourced) of the Quaker, Peter Osborne, who arrived in Philadelphia in 1712 with his wife, Judith Deuce, and their children. He died a few days later.

The father of Peter Osborne, the immigrant, was Charles Osborne, the curate of Bilston. This is the town where Peter and Judith lived when they were married, and where they recorded the birth of their first son, Charles, and where they were in a Quaker meeting with Peter’s brother, Charles Jr and his wife Dorothy Tonks.

The next link was found in a lease for property in London owned by “Charles Osborne of Bilston, Staffs, clerk.” Other contracts and wills gave the names of Charles’ parents, Thomas and Margaret Osborne, and his grandparents, John Osborne and Dorothy Barlee of Chicksands, Bedfordshire, whose family is well known.

Peter and Judith’s children in Pennsylvania and Maryland were: Charles, Peter Jr (m Hannah Lloyd), Elizabeth (m James Sheward and Francis Way), and Samuel (m Frances Buffington). Peter died three days after their traveling minute was accepted by Philadelphia Monthly Meeting. Judith later married William Harvey and their children were: Hannah (m Jacob Way), William Jr (m Ann Evitt), Isaac (m Martha Newlin), Amos (m Kezia Wright), James (m Grace Birrett). (See the other message for sources of these assertions.)
