Woodward Pedigrees

Chester County, Pennsylvania Group

homas Woodward, sea captain of William Parish, Hertford, England, married Mary Gilbert there January 14, 1750 at Church of Severnage in Little Wymondley. Their daughter Sarah was christened there in 1754. The family came to Philadelphia before the American Revolution. He was serving the rebels as first mate on the Little Porgy when he was captured by the British and taken to Old Mill Prison in England where he probably stayed for the remainder of the war. In Philadelphia, Poulson's Daily Advertiser noted his marriage to Margaret Houston in 1792. In 1801, Thomas was listed in the Philadelphia directory as sea captain. The place of his death is not established. His son Thomas left Philadelphia, and most of his children were born in Virginia and he also lived in Bourbon County, Kentucky.

ichard Woodward of Chester County, Pennsylvania was probably born in Acton Parish, Cheshire, England in about 1636. He is believed to have immigrated to America with his brother Robert and sister Elizabeth. Some of the children of both Richard and Robert accompanied them. They arrived in Chester County before 1687 when Richard purchased land in Thornbury, Chester County, as is found in court records. The surname of Richard's wife Jane is not known although several have been suggested. Many of Richard and Jane's descendants were Quakers and their records helped prove numerous family relationships. In about 1765, some descendants left Chester County for North Carolina. Ultimately, descendants from North Carolina and Tennessee moved north to Indiana, meeting up with other Woodwards from Chester County who had migrated directly to western Pennsylvania, Ohio, and then to Indiana. From Indiana they continued west and today are found in various western states. Many also remained in Chester and Delaware Counties, Pennsylvania. Source: Nadine Holder.
