John and Jane Chapman were the parents of several children: their second child, Ann, was born the 18th of the 3d. mo, 16715, and died in 1732-3. She became an esteemed minister in the Friends? Society. She began to travel in the ministry in 1706, and made several religious visits to England with approval.

Upon her return from England in May or June 1711-12, after one of such gospel journeys, she brought with her Thomas Lancaster, a youth about nine years of age, who became the ancestor of those mentioned in this volume. The writer has been unable to ascertain the names of the parents of Thomas Lancaster, although a diligent search has been made in all records, in England and the United States, that would likely contain the information desired. (See Note II.)

Of his early life in Bucks County we have no information.

On the 19th of the. 8th mo., 1725, he married Phebe Wardell, in the Wrightstown meeting of Friends, She appears to have been a resident of Wrightstown at that time. It is the first recorded marriage on the records of Buckingham and Wrightstown meeting of Friends, and their certificate shows the names of forty-two witnesses, (See Note III.)
