William Gregg

William Gregg born circa 1642, Glenarm Barony, Antrim, Antrim, Ireland; md. abt 1666, Ardmore, Waterford, Ireland, Ann Wilkinson (1644-1692); d. 1 Jul 1687,[1] Strand Mills, near Centerville, Christiana Hundred, New Castle, Delaware. According to Kendall, he and his family were converted to the Society of Friends (Quakers) after the visit to Waterford by William Penn in 1678. Immigrated to America in 1682, perhaps on the ship "Caledonia," settling in 1685 on 400-acre "Rockland Manor" in Christiana Hundred, New Castle. His land was on the West side of Brandywine Creek at the Pennsylvania border near the modern town of Centerville. He built his log cabin on a place he called Strand Millas. He was the founder of the Center Monthly Meeting, in 1787.[2] He died relatively young at about the age of 45.[3]

  1. various sources show death date as either 7/1/1687 or 1/7/1687
  2. either a typo or the wrong William Gregg, as this William died in 1687. If a typo for 1687, that argues for the July 1, 1687 death date (instead of January 7).

I deleted "The Quaker" as "Other Nicknames" on February 2, 2014, as it was not collaborated in the text.
