    Notes 

    • (1) Naylor, Mrs. H. W., "The John Naylor Family of Pennsylvania," in The "Old Northwest" Genealogical Quarterly, Vol. XI, Columbus, OH: The "Old Northwest" Genealogical Society, 1908, pp. 38-39, 45:

      In Pennsylvania, the first Naylor records that I can find are ''First Robert Nailer, from Manniash, in County Darby, EngIand, in the year 1683." [Note by compiler: "Manniash" is probably Monyash.] It is said that he married just before he left England. I have record of his descendants which I will take up after John Naylor.

      The first record of John Naylor is where he takes up land in Southampton Township, Bucks County, 1683, and he may have been there before this time. John Naylor, of Neskamina, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and Jane Cutler, were married at the house of James Dilworth, 5th month [July], 11th day, 1685. Jane Cutler may have been a sister of Edmund and John Cutler, who came from Bolland, Yorkshire. Their certificate from Settle Monthly Meeting was dated 4th month [June], 3rd day, 1685.

      John Naylor, of Southampton Township died about 1735.

      His wife Jane (Cutler) Naylor was buried 12th month [February], 11th day, 1727-8.

      In the will of John Naylor, dated Feb. 24th, 1732, proved August 16th, 1735: "John Naylor of Southampton, Yeoman. The legatees were: son John and his son John; son-in-laws Benjamin Scott and Arthur Searle. They were made executors and also guardian of grandchildren, viz.: Thomas and Benjamin Tomlinson (sons of Joseph Tomlinson and Mary (Naylor) Tomlinson, deceased; children of daughter Sarah Evans, by name, Ralph and George Dunn, Thomas Evans and Mary Searle. Four acres of plantation for public burying ground forever, for use of inhabitants of neighborhood on north side of Philadelphia road. Witnesses, Richard Studham; Thomas Eastburn." . . .

      The children of John and Jane (Cutler) Naylor from Middletown Meeting records:

      i. A daughter, first name not given.

      ii. JOHN, born 10th month [December], 16th day, 1692.

      iii. JANE, born 10th month [December], 16th day, 1694.

      iv. SUSANNA, born 7th month [September], 28th day, 1699.

      John Naylor and Jane (Cutler) Naylor had two other daughters not recorded in birth records. Some one suggested that he had been married before and had two daughters by first marriage, but this has not been proven.

      lt is said that the name of the first chiId of John and Jane (Cutler) Naylor was Mary (though not in birth records). This Mary Naylor married in Bucks County Dec. 22nd, 1708, Joseph Tomlinson. . . .

      This is now the record of John Naylor (1st) children:

      John Naylor (1st ), m. Jane Cutler, 1685. Children:

      i. JOHN (2nd), m. Mary Lane previous to 1715.

      ii. A daughter MARY, m. Joseph Tomlinson, 1708.

      iii. JANE, m. (1st) Elizer Twining (no issue), then Benj. Scote.

      iv. SARAH, m. (1st) Thos. Searle, then Dunn, then Thos. Evans.

      v. A daughter (no name), m. Arthur Searle.

      (2) Debra Townsend :

      "Of Condemnation - To Friends of our Monthly Meeting at Neshamina creek in ye county of Bucks to be held ye 1st of ye 2nd month [May] 1686.

      ["]Friends these are to give you to understand that after a serious consideration and some ponderous exercises passing through my mind, and with all taking a view of some of my late spent time I have found myself involved into a multitude of troubles, and ye severall wayes, first by my disorderly walking I have given cause to ye adversaries of truth to blaspheam and speak evil of ye same wch I believe is a great evill in ye sight of God and a great cause of trouble and exercise to his people that are upright hearted, and secondly this hath happened to me by being too careless and negligent of God and of ye guidance of his puer Spirit of life, for thereby ye enemy of my soul who waites all oppertunities hath prevailed over me, and did lead me to do those things wch are filthy and abomimable in ye sight both of God and his sincere hearted people that is in comitting fornication with Jane Cutler before she was my wife, wch filthy action I am sorry for in regard it both endangers my soule and brings a blemish upon ye truth wch I am sorry for, and for ye clearing of ye same as much as in me heth I do testify that I am hearty sorry for it and in ye light both of God and ye world I cannot but judge ye same to be very evill, and I desire (yt) I may be ye last sample of that nature and do freely give this forth for ye and (alone?) (above?) did without any extorting it from me. Witness my hand. John Nailer" . . .
