Notes for RICHARD L. CANTRELL:
This document is largely taken from pages 3 through 5 of Susan
Cantrill Christie's book The Cantrill-Cantrell Genealogy,
published in 1908 by the Grafton Press. It is available in
photo-reprint from Tuttle Antiquarian Books of Rutland, Vermont,
telephone: (802) 773-8229.
Additional material was written and incorporated by Young
Cantrall around 1961.
Tradition says that Richard Cantrill was born in Virginia, that
his father was Joseph who migrated to Philadelphia from
Virginia, and that said Joseph was a direct descendant of
William II. [Taken from Adamic's "My America", page 1. -- Y.C.]
Richard was a resident of Philadelphia, Pa., prior to 1689. In
July, 1689, he was appointed administrator to the estate of
Joseph Cantrill, an unmarried nephew who drowned while swimming
in the Schuykill River May 10, 1689.
It has been impossible to find records to prove the parentage,
or birthplace, of Richard Cantrill, but there is no doubt that
he came from the Derbyshire branch of the English family. His
name does not appear in any list of emigrants and he may have
been a descendant of William, or Henry Cantrell, of Virginia
[who came to Virginia in 1628 -- Y.C.]. Fisher says in his
"Making of Pennsylvania" that "quite a number of Virginians
migrated from that Colony to the Banks of the Delaware before
the settlement of Philadelphia by Penn, in 1678, under the rule
of the Duke of York."
From "Pennsylvania Archives" Vol. XIX, Series II:
"At a meeting of the Commissioners, 6th of July, 1692. Present:
Captain William Markham, Robert Turner, John Goodson, . . .
Richard Cantrill requesting a warrant for a lot of 30 ft. upon
Third Street, near the Burying Ground, was granted."
From the Original Records, Deed Book D, 53, page 50: "Richard
Cantrill to Thomas Hall, Sold 30 ft. x 190 ft. May 13, 1693,
Third and Market Streets."
In Patent Book A, Vol. II, page 344, there is a lease for
twenty-one years (May 5, 1702) made by Edward Shippen, Griffith
Owen and James Logan as Proprietary and Governor in Chief of
Pennsylvania and territories thereunto belonging . . . of a . .
"Certin tract of land between Fifth and Sixth streets containing
three acres and sixty perches" (here follows a full description
by metes and bounds) "to Richard Cantrill, Brickmaker, with all
woods and underwood and trees, ways, waters, water courses,
liberties, profits, commodities, advantages and opportunities
whatsoever." [Note: at South end of Philadelphia, near Delaware.
See also in Vol. 53, page 20, "Pennsylvania History and
Biography" -- Y.C.] The rental was forty shillings per year,
"current silver money of the Province." . . . "Said Richard
Cantrill shall build, erect and set up a substantial brick house
one story and a half in height and in breadth eighteen feet and
in length thirty-six feet; the first story of one brick and a
half and the second story of one brick, and further that said
Richard Cantrill shall make an orchard upon some part of the
hereby granted land, with at least eighty good bearing apple
trees planted thereon, and shall also well and sufficiently
fence and enclose the said demised land."
In "Pennsylvania Archives" we find:
"Cantrill, Old Rights: Richard Cantrill, city lot 3 acres, 10
day, 10 month, 1701. Rich. return 3 acres, 3 month 1702".
Later the Archives record a "Caveat against surveying of land
adjoining Richard Cantrill's estate, issuing to the heirs, or
executors of the said Richard Cantrill or any under him, May 31,
No record could be found of the disposition of the estate of
Richard Cantrill, either by his heirs or executors, but he
evidently died prior to May 31, 1753.
There is a tradition common in the family that the first
Cantrill in Philadelphia had a brick yard and built the first
brick house in that city. Records show that the "first brick
house in Philadelphia was owned by Robert Turner in 1684-5," and
in the same year Richard's brother-in-law, Daniel Pegge, also
built a brick house on "Pegge's Run." It is possible that
Richard had the contract for erecting both these houses, which
would easily account for the tradition in the family. [Note -
1961 - we know now that Richard got the 3 acres for the avowed
purpose of making bricks. In Adamics "My America", Edward Adams
Cantrell says that Joseph was the first Cantrell in
Philadelphia. He would have been Richard's
father, and very possibly built the first brick house. -- Y.C.]
In about 1693 Richard Cantrill married Dorothy Jones, daughter
of Ellis and Jane Jones, who came to America from either Flint,
or Denbigh, Wales, in the ship Submission, Sept., 1682.
From the log of the Submission:
"Ellis Jones, age 45, Jane Jones, age 40,
Barbara Jones, age 13, Mary Jones, age 12,
Dorothy Jones, age 10, Isaac Jones, age 4 mos."
The "Pennsylvania Historical Magazine," in a list of names of
"Important Colonists, who came in the Submission," mentions
Ellis Jones. He was a resident of Bucks County, long, and in the
Welsh Tract Purchases his name appears as having purchased one
hundred acres in Nantonell Parish, Radnor. Barbara Jones married
Daniel Pegge of "Pegge's Run;" Mary Jones married her cousin
Isaac Jones, and Dorothy Jones married Richard Cantrill.
Ellis Jones and his family were Quakers and as Richard belonged
to the Church of England, Richard and Dorothy were married, to
use a Quaker term, "Out of Meeting."
Dorothy Jones Cantrill seems to have been a young lady of
considerable spirit and independence of character. She not only
married the man of her choice, irrespective of her religious
training, but later evidence is found of her love of gayety and
society in an old history of Philadelphia, where she figures
at a masquerade ball, much to the horror of her more quiet
Quaker friends. She seems to have inherited her love of society
from her mother for the name of Jane Jones appears as a witness
to the marriage of a great many Quakers of her day, and the
Quaker weddings were probably the principal events affording
those of that sect an expression to their social instinct.
The will of Jane Jones, relict of Ellis Jones, executed at
Philadelphia, Aug. 3, 1730, and recorded at Philadelphia, Dec.
27, 1730, [S.C.Christie has Dec. 27, 1732 -- E.K.] mentions her
grandchildren: "Joseph Cantril, Zebulon Cantril, and Dorothy
Cantril" to each of whom she bequeaths: "One English shilling,
or the value of it in coyn current".
Children of Richard and Dorothy Cantrill:
The Records of the Race Street Meeting House contain the
following under "Burial of those not Friends: Mary, Jan 6, 1695,
parents Richard and Dorothy Cantrill."
Joseph was born about 1695.
Zebulon was born about 1697. Zebulon is from whom the Cantralls
of central Illinois are descended.
Dorothy, of whom we have no record.
Richard L. Cantrill of Charles City, Virginia, was born in March
1666 and died May 13, 1753. He was a member of the Church of
England and married Dorothy Jones (1672- 1727), a Quaker from
Wales, against family wishes in 1693 in Philadelphia. Richard
was a friend of William Penn. He also was founder of the first
brick factory in this country with his partner Daniel Peggy.
They built the first brick house in Philadelphia. Some of their
brick houses can still be seen on what was Peggy's Run now
called Willow Street.[ingram1956.ged]
RICHARD CANTRIL WAS BORN IN THE EARLY 1660s IN DERBYSHIRE,
ENGLAND. THE ESTIMATED PERIOD OF HIS BIRTH HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED
THAT HE HAD REACHED HIS MAJORITY WHEN HE CAME TO AMERICA IN THE
1680s. HIS SHIRE OF BIRTH HAS BEEN ESTABLISHED FROM A PETITION
THAT HE SUBMITTED TO JOHN BLACKWELL, ESQ., GOVERNOR OF THE
PROVINCE OF PENNSYLVANIA, IN JULY 1689, STATING THAT HIS NEPHEW,
JOSEPH CANTRIL HAD DROWNED IN THE SCHUYKILL RIVER, 10 MAY 1689,
AND THAT JOSEPH HAD OLDER AND YOUNGER BROTHERS IN DERBYSHIRE,
ENGLAND. HE POSTED A BOND OF ONE HUNDRED POUNDS, WHICH WAS
CONSIDERABLE MONEY AT THAT TIME. THIS DOCUMENT IS ON FILE AT THE
REGISTER OF WILLS, CITY HALL, PHILADELPHIA, PA. ADMIN. BOOK "A" PAGE
66, FILE NO. 54, 1689. WE KNOW FROM THE HEARTH TAX RECORDS OF
DERBYSHIRE IN THE EARLY 1660s THAT THERE WAS SEVERAL CANTRIL
FAMILIES LIVING IN THE SHIRE. OVER THE YEARS, SEVERAL DESCENDANTS
OF THE FAMILY HAVE TRAVELED TO DERBYSHIRE AND SEARCHED FOR
RICHARD'S BIRTH AND PARENTAGE. IN 1986 AND 87, A FAMILY
RESEARCHER, LOCATED A BAPTISMAL RECORD OF A RICHARD CANTRIL,
SON OF RICHARD AND ALICE CANTRIL WHO WAS BAPTIZED 13 MAY 1666
IN BAKEWELL PARISH, DERBYSHIRE. IN THE NEARBY PARISH OF
ASHOVER, WE FIND WHERE A JOSEPH CANTRILL, SON OF WILLIAM AND
ELIZABETH CANTRILL WAS CHRISTENED 23 DEC. 1666. THERE IS RECORD
OF A RICHARD AND MARY CANTRILL IN BAKEWELL PARISH IN 1694 AND
1697. ACCORDING TO TRADITION AND LAND RECORDS, WE BELIEVE THAT
BY PROFESSION, RICHARD WAS A BRICK MAKER AND PERHAPS A MASON,
AND OPERATED A BRICKYARD IN PHILADELPHIA. NO RECORD HAS BEEN
FOUND OF THE IMMIGRATION OF EITHER RICHARD OR JOSEPH TO THE
PENNSYLVANIA COLONY IN THE 1680s. THERE IS TRADITION IN THE
FAMILY THAT HE ERECTED THE FIRST BRICK HOUSE IN PHILADELPHIA.
WE KNOW FROM PENNSYLVANIA HISTORY THAT THE 1ST BRICK HOUSE
BUILT WAS THE HOUSE OF ROBERT TURNER, BUILT AT THE SW CORNER
OF FRONT AND MULBERRY (ARCH) STREET. FROM A LETTER WRITTEN
BY ROBERT TURNER TO WM. PENN, IN ENGLAND DATED 3RD OF AUGUST
1685, "AND SINCE I BUILT MY BRICK HOUSE, THE FOUNDATION OF WHICH
WAS LAID AR THY GOING--". WILLIAM PENN HAD SAILED FROM ENGLAND
IN AUG. 1682 AND LANDED IN OCT. 1684 AT WONDER IN SUSSEX. HE WAS
NOT TO RETURN TO PENNSYLVANIA UNTIL THE WINTER OF 1699. HE
STAYED UNTIL 1701, WHEN HE RETURNED TO ENGLAND, NEVER TO
RETURN. TURNER WENT ON TO SAY IN HIS LETTER THAT, "THOMAS
SMITH AND DANIEL PEGG ARE PARTNERS, AND SET TO MAKING OF BRICK
THIS YEAR, AND THEY ARE VERY GOOD."
RICHARD MARRIED DOROTHYJONES IN THE EARLY 1690s. SHE WAS BORN
IN 1672 IN WALES, ENGLAND. THE NEXT RECORD WE FIND OF RICHARD
AND DOROTHY CANTRIL WAS IN 1703 DELAWARE COURT PROCEEDINGS AS
EXTRACTED BY SCHARF. AMONG THE GRAND JURY PRESENTMENTS.
"DOROTHY, WIFE OF RICHARD CANTRELL, PRESENTED FOR MASKING IN
MEN'S CLOTHES THE DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS, "WALKING AND DANCING IN
THE HOUSE OF JOHN SIMES AT 9 OR 10 O'CLOCK AT NIGHT." JOHN SIMES,
WHO GAVE THE MASQUERADE PARTY, WAS PRESENTED FOR KEEPING A
DISORDERLY HOUSE, "A NURSERY OF DEBOTCH YE INHABITANTS AND
YOUTH OF THIS CITY..TO YE GRIEF OF AND DISTURBANCE OF PEACEFUL
MINDS AND PROPAGATING YE THRONE OF WICKEDNESS AMONGSTUS."
FOUR CHILDREN CAN BE VERIFIED FROM A WILL AND BURIAL RECORDS.
IT IS POSSIBLE THAT A JANE______ AND MARY PRICE MENTIONED IN THE
WILL MAY ALSO HAVE BEEN THEIR CHILDREN. IT WAS NOT UNCOMMON
IN THOSE DAYS TO NAME A SECOND CHILD, THE SAME AS ONE WHO DIED
1. MARY CANTRIL. THE RECORDS OF THE RACE STREET MEETINGHOUSE
CONTAIN THE FOLLOWING UNDER "BURIALS OF THOSE NOT FRIENDS."
MARY 1-6-1695, PARENTS, RICHARD AND DOROTHY CANTRIL.
2.* JOSEPH CANTRIL
3. ZEBULON CANTRIL
4. DOROTHY CANTRIL, UNMARRIED IN 1730, AND MENTIONED IN THE WILL
OF HER GRANDMOTHER JONES. NO OTHER RECORDS LOCATED.

Notes for JOSEPH C. CANTRELL:
From material prepared by Eddy and Glenda Harrel - Reference
attributed to "Early Families of the North Carolina Counties of
Rockingham and Stokes with Revolutionary Service", compiled and
published by members of James Hunter Chapter, National Society,
Daughter of American Revolution of Madison, North Carolina,
Joseph spent his early boyhood in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Joseph and Catharina lived in New Castle County, Pennsylvania on
or near the site of the present city of Wilmington, Delaware,
and were attendants at Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Church before
1720. Their first three children were baptised at the old
historical church, known as Old Swedes, which is one of the
oldest and quaintest churches in this country.
Joseph was probably a farmer in these lower counties of
Pennsylvania, which later became part of Delaware. A published
work of the wills in the county of New Castle fails to reveal a
will of Joseph or Catharina. It is possible that Joseph
accompanied some of the sons on the move south to North
Carolina. In 1752 and 1753, son John was taxed for two white
polls in Orange County, North Carolina. One may have been his
father. A complete list of the children of John and Catharina
has never been found. The nine children listed were compiled
from family records and the court and county records of Orange
County North Carolina.
Christina Parish was mostly situated on both sides of Christina
Creek, partly on both sides of Brandywine Creek in New Castle
County and in the Hundreds of New Castle, Christina and
Brandywine. It stretched two Swedish miles in length, and one in
breadth. The most remote families of the parish were not more
than six and a half English miles distance from the church. The
city of Wilmington is build on the Swedish "church land" and the
charter for the town was granted on 1735. At the time Joseph
Cantril went there, it was known as Christina.
Many of the earliest records of this locality have been lost, or
destroyed, and at best are very incomplete. There is evidence,
however, from the scattered records in New Castle County today,
that descendents of Richard Cantril lived there from before 1720
until 1797, though the majority moved south during this period.
A published work of the wills and probates of New Castle County
during the period of Joseph's residence there fails to reveal
his will or probate. As he was a man in his 50s when his sons
moved south to Carolina, it can be assumed that he made the move
with his sons. In the tax list submitted to the Orange County
Court, North Carolina for the year 1754, his son John's
household listed two taxable white males. As John's sons were
under 16 years of age, it can be assumed that one of these was
his father, Joseph.
Notes for CATHERINE HEATH:
Catharina and Joseph attended the Holy Trinity (Old Swedes)
Church in Wilmington, Delaware. Three of their children were
baptized at this oldest and quaintest church in the nation. A
complete list of the children of Joseph and Catharina has never
been found. The nine children listed were compiled from the
court and county records of Orange County, North Carolina. The
sixth child (a female, name unknown) was born about 1722.
