Morgan James Yeoman Title: Yeoman Description: Decedent Residence: Newtown Date: 14 May 1737 Prove Date: 17 Jun 1737 Book/Page: B:21 Remarks: James, Morgan. Newtown, yeoman. May 14, 1737.

Lewis and friend Thos. Thomas of Radnor, trustees.

MORGAN JAMES, of Radnor, and Elizabeth Prytherch, of the same township, were married 11, 1, 1694, at Radnor Meeting. No other James signed the marriage certificate, and it is probable, according to the Welsh custom, that he was the son of some one whose first name was James. A brother, Thomas James, lived in Whiteland township but left no children. Elizabeth Prytherch was the daughter of Evan Prytherch (also written Prothero and Protherah) and Elizabeth (Thomas?) his wife. George Thomas, the owner of 200 acres of land in Newtown, devised the same to his cousin (niece?) Elizabeth, afterward wife of Morgan James. The latter subsequently married a 2d wife, Mary, and died in Newtown about June, 1737, leaving children by last wife, Thomas, Aaron, Jonathan, Martha and Hannah James. Children of Morgan and Elizabeth James: MARY, b. 8, 20, 1695; m. Henry Treviller and John Earl. JOSEPH, m. Elizabeth (???) and died in Willistown, 1770. His dau.

copy of comment posted to James-3460:

The profiles of the wives should be explored as possible duplicates too... many records record dual dates for January-March of that era (the year started in March - "old style" - so 1694/5 would indicate a 1694 year by the old calendar but 1695 by the new).

You might also look into Quaker sources, as one of the profiles ref'd Quaker records.
