I checked in my Chester Co records and discovered a large family of REynolds, starting with a Henry, who first came to Burlington, NJ...married Prudence Clayton, in 1678. I'm including his will, below, showing that he had sons named Henry, William, Francis and John..(this son Francis was born 8-15-1684...this francis married 1712, Elizabeth Acton in Salem NJ, and settled in Chichester twp, dying in 1760.) so, while the names are 'right', and they were Quakers, the dates sure don't match... this family had quite a few generations of Henrys and Francises, I'm afraid.
