    • (1) Davis, William W. H., A Genealogical and Personal History of Bucks County, Pennsylvania, Vol. II [Reprint], Baltimore, MD: Clearfield Company, Inc., 1999, p. 545:

      . . . Ezra Croasdale was a native of Yorkshire, England, and brought a certificate from the Friends' Meeting at Brighouse, Yorkshire, dated 1 mo. [March] 29, 1683, and settled in Middletown, where he married 2 mo. [April] 6, 1687, Ann Peacock, also a native of Yorkshire, coming from Kirksdale, in that county, in 1684, in the ship "Shield," of Stockton, which arrived in the Delaware river in the latter part of the 8th month, 1684. They were married at the house of Nicholas Waln, under the direction of Neshaminy (now Middletown) Monthly Meeting. Ezra Croasdale died 4 mo. [June] 18, 1740, and his wife Ann 10 mo. [December] 8, 1732. They were the parents of four children, viz.: Ezra, born 12 mo. [February] 5, 1689, died 4 mo. [June], 1702; William, born 7 mo. [September] 19, 1690, died 9 mo. [November] 19, 1777; Grace, born 2 mo. [April] 6, 1692; and Jeremiah, born 8 mo. [October] 29, 1694.

      (2) Potts, Thomas Maxwell, Our Family Ancestors, Canonsburg, PA: Thomas M. Potts, 1895, p. 25:

      EZRA CROASDALE, probably a near relative of Thomas [Croasdale], arrived in Pennsylvania in 1683, and settled in Bucks County. He married Ann Peacock, 2 mo. [April] 6, 1687. His will dated 2 mo. [April] 17, 1727, was probated Aug. 2, 1740. There were at least two children:

      1 WILLIAM CROASDALE, b. _____; d. 1782; m. 1st, Grace Harding, 7 mo. [September] 16, 1713, and had children, 1 Mary, 2 Sarah, 3 Ann, 4 Grace, 5 John, 6 Rebecca, 7 Rachel. He m. 2d, Deliverance _____. There was another child, Phebe, but by which marriage is uncertain.

      2 JEREMIAH CROASDALE, m. Grace Heaton, 7 mo. [September] 22, 1730, and had a son Ezra and possibly other children.

      (3) Some of the records relating to Ezra CROASDALE and his descendants use "Quaker dates." See the following discussion of these dates in Berry, Ellen Thomas and Berry, David Allen, Our Quaker Ancestors: Finding Them in Quaker Records, Baltimore, MD: Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., 1987, p. 67:

      Quakers . . . did not use names for days of the week or months of the year since most of these names were derived from the names of pagan gods. A date such as August 19, 1748 will never be found. Rather it would be written "19th da 6th mo 1748." Sometimes this will be written as 6mo 19da 1748. Why 6th month since August is the 8th month? The Quakers, along with everyone else in the American Colonies and England, did not begin using the Gregorian calendar until 1752. Under the Julian calendar the year began on March 25th; March was the first month and February the twelfth month. This is something of a problem when an event occurred in the months of January, February or up to March 25th, for then the date is given as 1748/1749.
