Thomas Lightfoot,1 a highly esteemed minister of the Society of Friends, was born about 1645, perhaps in Cambridgeshire, and may have been the son of another Thomas Lightfoot who suffered persecution for his Quaker belief at Cambridge, in 1653,2 and was a companion of George Whitehead in his religious journeys. In 1692, the younger Thomas was living in the neighborhood of Lisburn Meeting, County Antrim, Ireland; for on 8 Mo. 27 of that year he was appointed on a committee to buy the Friends graveyard at Lisburn from Robert Richardson. In 1694, he removed from the north of the Island to Moate Meeting in County West Meath.3 Thence in 17164 he came to New Garden, Pennsylvania. Early in 1724 he paid a religious visit to New England. He died at Darby, now Delaware County, 9 Mo. 4, 1725, "greatly beloved" says his intimate friend Thomas Chalkley,5 "for his Piety and Virtue, his sweet disposition and lively Ministry."
The name of his first wife is thought to have been Mary, after whose death he married Sarah Wiley, a widow, about the time of his removal to West Meath. Toward the close of 1724 he was married to Margaret, widow of John Blunston, of Darby, to which place he removed. He had at least nine children:

I hired an Indifferent hand lately at Husbandry & it cost me 36s for 4 weeks (& diet)."
"This Country I find most agreeable to my Health (else it is wth working harder): this country also is governed by more agreeable Laws than that."
The following letter2 was written by an uncle of the emigrant, William Pim, to his grand-nephew, Joshua Pirn, of Usher's Island, Dublin:
"Tullylast, Co. Kildare,
11th of 11 mo. 1768.
"Joshua Pim,
Loving Cousin,
In answer to thy request mentioned in thine of the 9th instant I send thee this: I can go no further back than to my great grandfather Richard Pim, who before his marriage lived a considerable time, a cook, with (I think he was called) Sir John Stanhope, ancestor to the Earl of Chesterfield. I heard of but one brother that he had, called Robert Pim, who he said came into Ireland when young, of whom he heard no more. We suppose he was that Robert Pim that Sir John Temple mentions to have been murdered by the Rebels at Graigue-ne-manch, in the County of Kilkenny. Richard Pim, before his marriage, had acquired what they call three livings; I suppose that to be three small pieces of land with each a dwelling on it.
He took a liking to a neighbor's daughter, a comely young girl of thirteen years of age, and as he and his fellow servants rode out on a merry-making, one of his fellow-servants took a pillow behind him and found her playing ball with other girls and asked her to go with them, which she did (it is probable that this was by conceit) and the said Richard married her and sent her to a boarding school for two years and then took her home at fifteen years of age. By her he had my grandfather, William Pim, and several daughters; one married Godfrey Cantrell and one married to William Neale.
My grandfather, William Pim, married Dorothy, the sister of William Neal, and dwelt if I remember right, at his grandfather Neales house in Castledunnington, in Leistershire, in the year 1641; and in the year 1655 Godfrey Cantrell and family came into Ireland and Richard Pim, then very old, came with him and some time after died at Godfrey Cantrell' s house, near Rosenallis (in the Queen's County), and was buried in the Church at Rosenallis. The same year my grandfather William Pim, and William Neal and families came over and settled in the County of Cavan, where after some years my grandfather died and was buried in his orchard at his own request, tho of the profession of the church of England; about which time William Edmundson and Richard Jackson and some other Friends retnoved to the Queen's Co. William Edmundson settled near Rosenallis, Richard Jackson and my father near Mount Melick. My father had his mother to take care of, and one sister, Ellen, afterwards the wife of Thomas Nevitt. My father joined partnership with Richard Jackson in the Butchering trade, and at Mount Mehck became acquainted with my mother, Mary, the daughter of William Pleadwell, who was born at Normanton upon Sere, in Nothinghamshire. My grandfather, William Pleadwell and his wife came into Ireland in 1655, they being Baptists, and settled near Killaloe. He had by his first wife Tobias Pleadwell, and by a second wife John Pleadwell, and by a third wife Thomas Pleadwell and my mother and two other daughters, one of whom was married to William Neale; and some time after my grandfather settled near Killaloe he was convinced by the ministry of Edward Burroughs and died not after; and as his son Tobias Pleadwell was convinced some time before his father and settled at Mount Melick, my grandmother and her children came to dwell at Mountmelick, and in the year 1663 my father & mother married and settled at Mountmelick; but in the year 1665 my father and several other friends were sent to prisoners for Tythe to Maryborough Gaol, where they continued prisoners for several years, though he had nothing titheable but a garden; so he got a house in Maryborough for my mother to dwell in and by favour of the Gaoler or Gaolers followed some business in his trade at Maryborough, and after they were discharged from the prison he took a farm at Coalnecart, part of the lands thy father now holds, and in 1678 or 1679 he went to live at Mountrath. As to the feme and place of the births and burials of my brothers and sisters I refer thee to the abstract of the monthly meeting records of births and burials of Mount Melick Monthly Meeting, which abstract, so far as relates to Mountrath meeting is mostly in my handwriting. I suppose it is in the hands of John Clendenon.
Thomas Pim.
P. S. Richard Jackson, before mentioned, had three sons, John, Thomas and Robert, and one daughter, Sarah, the wife of Nicholas Gribble. John I had no acquaintance with: Thomas, thy grandfather, lived at Killenare, and Robert at Mountmelick: thy grandmother, Sarah Pim, was born at Killenare. Thou may get all their genealogies out of the records of births and burials of Mountmelick monthly meeting."

Thomas Pim, the writer of the above letter, was the sixth son of John and Mary Pim. He resided at Mountrath until about 1735, when he went to live with his son's family at Tullylast, County Kildare. He died a few months after he wrote the letter, in his 86th year. He had two sons who had large families. My mother was his son Robert's eldest child. She was 16 years old when he died, and often spoke of him with great respect. His last grandchild, John Pirn, died last summer in his 89th year. His sister, Hannah, died in her 91st year in 1849. There are now not any of his descendants of the name of Pim among Friends.—Robert Goodbody writing in 1852.

Thomas Sharp, "woolstead comber," of Dublin, nephew of of Anthony Sharp, a wealthy Quaker merchant of that city, was one of the leaders of the Irish Quaker settlement of Newton, N. J. He has left the following interesting account of his immigration and settlement, written in 1718:1
"Let it be remembered yt upon ye nineteenth day of September, in ye year of our Lord one thousand six hundred and eighty-one, Mark Newby, William Bates, Thomas Thackara, George Goldsmith and Thomas Sharp, set saile from ye Harbor belonging to ye city of Dublin in ye Kingdom of Ireland, in a pink called Ye owner's adventure, whereof Thomas Lurtin, of London, was commander, and being taken sick in ye city, his mate John Dagger, officiated in his place; in order to transport us, and yt we might settle ourselves in West Jersey, in America. And by ye good providence of God we arrived in ye Capes of Delaware ye eighteenth day of November following, and so up ye bay until we came to Elsenburg, and were landed with our goods and families at Salem, where we abode ye winter. But it being very favourable weather and purchasing a boat amongst us, we had an opportunity to make search up and down in yt which was called ye Third tenth, which had been reserved for ye proprietors dwelling in Ireland, where we might find a place suitable for so many of us to settle down together, being in these early times somewhat doubtful of ye Indians, and at last pitched down by yt which is now called Newton creek, as ye most invitingist place to settle down by, and then we went to Burlington, and made application to ye commissioners yt we might have warrants directed to Daniel Leeds, ye Surveyor General, to survey unto every of us, so much land as by ye constitution at yt time was alloted for a settlement being five hundred acres, or yt we had a right to, for a taking up it under, which accordingly we obtained.
"At which time also Robert Zane, who came from ye city of Dublin, and had been settled in Salem, four years before, joined in with us who had a right to a tenth, Mark Newby to a twentieth, William Bates to a twentieth, Thomas Thackara to a twentieth, Thomas Sharp (out of his uncle Anthony Sharp's right) a twentieth, and George Goldsmith (under ye notion of Thomas Starkey's right) a tenth; all which of us excepting William Bates who took his on ye southerly side of Newton creek, we took our land in one tract together for one thousand seven hundred and fifty acres, bounding in ye forks of Newton creek and so over to Cooper's creek and by a line of marked trees to a small branch of ye fork creek and so down yt same as by ye certficate of it standing upon record in ye Secretary's office it doth appear. And after some time finding some incoveniency in having our land in common together being at ye time settled at ye place now called Newton in ye manner of a town for fear as aforesaid at which being removed we came to an agreement to divide. George Goldsmith he chose the head of the creek, Thomas Sharp the forks or lower end of the land next towards the river by which means the rest kept to their settlements without any disadvantage to themselves.
And so ye land was divided according to every man's right.

Given under my hand the 3rd month, 3rd, 1718.
Thomas Sharp."

Thomas Sharp was Recorder and Clerk of the Courts of Gloucester County for many years. He was also a surveyor and made several important maps of the early settlements which are reproduced in facsimile in Judge Clement's First Settler's of Newton. He acted as agent for his uncle, Anthony Sharp, of Dublin, who had large holdings in New Jersey. In 1684, he was made Commissioner of Highways, and in the following year was returned as a member of the Legislature. In 1700, he became Judge of the Gloucester County Courts.

Isaac Sharp, son of Anthony Sharp, of Dublin, came to New Jersey about 1702-3, and settled at Blessington, now Sharptown.
He was Judge of Salem Court and served as a member of the Assembly from 1709 to 1725. About 1726 he returned to Ireland and resided on his estate called "Roundwood," in Queen's County, where he died in 1735. He married in 1704, Margaret Braithwaite, of Salem, and had children: Anthony. Isaac (of Blessington, Salem County, N. J., died in 1770. He was also Judge of Salem Court), Joseph, Sarah, Rachel (m. Daniel Delaney, of Queen's County, Ireland, by whom she had children: Sharp, William, Martin).—American Genealogist, 146.

Robert Zane, of Dublin, "Serge Maker," pioneer settler of Newton, or the Irish Tenth, in Gloucester County, N. J., probably came out with John Fenwick and his party, in 1675, for he was one of the members of the Friends' Meeting established at Salem that year.
By deed of April 12, 1677, he became one of the Proprietors of West New Jersey. In 1679 he was married, at Burlington Meeting, to Alice Alday, who is thought to have been an Indian. In 1681 he became a settler at Newton. He was elected to the first Legislature in 1682, and was returned in 1685. He died in 1694, leaving his second wife, Elizabeth (daughter of Henry Willis, of Hempstead, Long Island), and several children to survive him.
Children were: Nathaniel, b. about 1673, m. Grace Rakestraw, of Philadelphia, in 1697; Robert, m. Jane; Elnathan; Simon; Mary; Esther; and Sarah. (For further details see Clement's First Settlers of Newton, 11-22, and Penna. Mag., XII., 123-25.)

William Bates, carpenter, of County Wicklow, who was imprisoned in 1670, for attending Friends' Meeting at Thomas Trafford's house in Wicklow (Besse, II., 470), was one of a company of Friends who purchased a share of West New Jersey, by deed of April 12, 1677.
He sailed from Dublin in September, in 1681, in Ye Owners Adventure, and settled with the other Irish Friends at Newton, where he owned 250 acres of land. In 1683 he was one of the representatives from the Irish Tenth in the Legislature of the Province of West New Jersey, and was the same year appointed constable. The next year he was again returned as a member of the Legislature, and was appointed one of the commissioners for laying out highways. He died in 1700. His children, all born in Ireland, were: Jeremiah, m. Mary, daughter of Samuel Spicer; Joseph, m. Mercy Clement, in 1701; Abigail, m. Joshua Fearne, in 1687; William, said to have married an Indian girl; Sarah, m. Simon Ellis, in 1692.(Clement's First Settlers of Newton, 47-56.)

George Goldsmith, a Friend, came over from Dublin, in Ye Owners Adventure, in 1681-2, and settled at Gloucester, N. J.(Judge Clement's First Settlers in Newton, 67-70. )
His grandson, James Parrock, a Friend, of Philadelphia, shipwright, aged seventy-six years, in a deposition made at Philadelphia, Jan. 2, 1751, states that his grandfather had formerly lived at Ballinakill, Queen's County, Ireland, and had served in Ireland as Lieutenant in Cromwell's Army.(Ibid., the author's corrected copy. (Hist. Soc. of Penna. ) Type-written note inserted at page 70.)

John Hugg, from the Parish of Castle Ellis, County Wexford, was an early settler on Little Timber Creek, in the Newton settlement, where in 1683 he purchased 500 acres of land from Robert Zane.
He served as a member of the Jersey Legislature in 1685. He died in 1706. His children were: John, Judge of Gloucester County courts, 1695-1706, Provincial Councillor of West New Jersey, etc., m. Priscilla, daughter of Francis Collins; Elias, m. Margaret, sister of Priscilla Collins; Joseph, m. Sarah; and Charles.(Judge Clement's First Settlers in Newton, 283-291. )

Mark Newbie, says Judge Clement, "was a resident of the city of London, and a tallow chandler." He was a member of a Friends' Meeting, whose house of worship was in a street of that city, called "Barbican," and removed to Dublin, in 1581.
Unfortunately the Judge does not give his authority for this statement or it might be confirmed; but this date of removal to London is at least ten years too late, for Stockdale mentions Newbie as a persecuted Quaker shopkeeper residing in Thomas Street, Dublin, in 1671. Says Stockdale:A Great Cry of Oppression, 205
In 1671, Mark Newby, of Thomas Street, Dublin, "because for Conscience sake he could not be an observer of Holidays (so-called) he opened his Shop on the 25th of the 10th month, called Christmas day." For this he "had his house assaulted by a rude multitude," who with great violence threw dirt and stones into "his Shop, endangering his Life and his Families; spoyled Shop-goods, broke Glass-windows and Pewter vessels, abused their Neighbours for reproving them; the said Mark was damnified" 16 s. 6d.
Mark Newby set out for New Jersey, in the latter part of 1681, in Ye Owners Adventure and settled at Newton, the first Friends' meetings being held at his house. In the political affairs of New Jersey he took a prominent part and filled several positions of trust and responsibility. At the May term of the Legislature, in 1682, he appeared as a member, and was selected by the Governor as one of his Council. He was made one of the Land Commissioners and one of the Committee of Ways and Means to raise money for the use of the government. He died probably early in 1683, for at the May term of the Legislature in 1683 he is mentioned as deceased.
As far as ascertained, he had two sons and two daughters: Rachel, m. Isaac Decou, in 1695; Stephen, m. Elizabeth Wood, in 1703; Edward, in Hannah Chew, in 1706; and Elizabeth, m. John Hogg, in 1714.
Hannah, the widow of Mark Newbie, married James Atkinson, in 1685.(Judge Clement's First Settlers in Newton, 37-46. )

Thomas Thackara, "stuff maker," of Dublin, by deed of April 12, 1677, in conjunction with other Friends, purchased one whole share of West New Jersey.
He sailed with his family from Dublin, in September, 1681, in Ye Owners Adventure, and settled on 250 acres at Newton. He became one of the leading men of the settlement, serving as a member of the first Legislature that sat at Burlington to frame and adopt laws for the Province. In 1682, he was appointed one of the Judges of the Court for the Irish Tenth and served until 1685, inclusive. He was also one of the land commissioners. The first Friends' meeting house built at Newton stood upon lands conveyed by him to the trustees of the Society. He died about 1702, letters of administration on his estate being granted in that year. His first wife probably died after his settlement here, as in 1689 he married Hepzibah, daughter of Francis Eastlake.(Judge Clement's First Settlers in Newton, 37-46. )
Children were: Benjamin, m. Mary, daughter of William Cooper; Thomas, m. (1) Ann Parker and (2) Abigail Bates; Hannah, m. John Whitall; Sarah, m. John Eastlack; and Hep- zibah.(Judge Clement's First Settlers in Newton, 57-66. )

John Jarvis, or Jervis,1 a Friend, of Roscore, King's County, Ireland, with his son Martin, as stated in the deposition of James Parrock, made at Philadelphia, in 1751, was "obliged to fly from Ireland [in 1688] with as much haste and privacy as he could for fear of being massacred by the Papists." He came to New Jersey by way of Boston and took up his residence with his old friend George Goldsmith, of Gloucester, N. J., where he remained until 1691, when he settled on a large tract of land which he had purchased at Cape May. He was appointed Justice of the Peace for Cape May County in 1695, 1696, and 1697. In 1701, he returned to Ireland. He had five2 sons: I. Charles Jarvis3 (b. about 1675 in Ireland, d. in London, in 1739) studied in London under Sir Godfrey Kneller, court painter, and became a celebrated artist. (He was a friend of Pope, the poet, and translated Don Quixote.—See National Dictionary of Biography, XXIX., p. 354. ) II. John Jarvis, who in 1753,4 was living in King's County, Ireland. III. Mathew, died young. IV. Trevor, died young. V. Martin Jarvis, shoemaker, b. about 1675, d. 1742, says Parrock, settled for a time in Newton, then Gloucester County, N. J., and married in 1698, Mary Champion (whose father John Champion came afterwards from Long Island and settled near Gloucester). In 1705, Martin Jarvis purchased a house and lot on 2d Street, between Market and Chestnut Streets, Philadelphia, and made his residence there the remainder of his life. His daughter Sarah married William Sandwith, an Irish Friend, of Philadelphia, and became the mother of Elizabeth (Sandwith) Drinker (wife of Henry Drinker, of Philadelijhia, one of the Quaker exiles to Virginia, in the war of the Revolution), whose diary,5 covering the period 1759-1807, is a valuable record of the social life of the time.
