Figure 1. Bucks County East ca 1887 (from J. H. Battle, History of Bucks County (Spartanburg, South Carolina, 1985), reprint of the 1887 edition, p. 1b).

Generation One

    1. Thomas Terry, born about 16531 of Middletown, Bucks, Pennsylvania;2 he died before 28 May 17043 in Bucks Co., Pennsylvania.4,5 Thomas married6 abt 1674 a Bowden (probably Sarah) born 1657 of West New Jersey (Burlington County, New Jersey now Bristol Twp, Bucks, Pennsylvania) daughter of Mordecai and Rebecca Bowden,7 some of the first settlers of what became Bristol Twp, Bucks County.8,9,10 On 14 Jul 1683 William Penn granted unto Thomas Terry 100 acres of land near his father-in-law Mordecai Bowden.11 He directed his surveyor, Thomas Holmes, to have surveyed ‘unto Terry a piece on the back of Bowden’s land’ (recorded 1700/1).12,13,14

     Thomas and Sarah (Bowden) Terry had four known children, all probably born in Bucks:15,16

  + 2   i. JASPER TERRY, born abt 1675 of Bucks, Pennsylvania. He married Susannah____ of Bucks County.

  + 3  ii. CLEMENT TERRY, born abt 1677 of Bucks, Pennsylvania.

  + 4 iii. THOMAS TERRY, a cooper, was born abt 1679 of Southampton Twp, Bucks, Pennsylvania. He married Mary____ of Bucks County.

  + 5 iv. JOSHUA TERRY, b. abt 1681 in Bucks County.

     Thomas’ origins are unknown, but DNA evidence has shown the Bucks County Terrys are very closely related to the Southold Long Island Terrys (see essay on this website: ‘Addendum 1: Analysis of Y-DNA Markers Relevant to Thomas Terry of Bucks b 1653’). Another essay, ‘Origins of Thomas Terry, b. abt 1653’, is in preparation). He and his posterity over the next 2-3 generations had strong associations with the Society of Friends (Quakers).

ASSUMPTIONS

     It is probably a good assumption that virtually all Terrys in Bucks County up to the twentieth century are descended from this Thomas Terry, b. abt 1653 and this genealogical essay is based on that assumption. Exceptions to this assumption are noted in the essay with reasons for exclusion from this family. In support of the assumption it should be noted that in the 1850 through the 1900 censuses of Bucks County, there is no Terry not born in Pennsylvania. Therefore, the known Terry families of Massachusetts (2), New York (L.I.), and Virginia did not migrate to Bucks County during this period.

Figure 2. Land Claim of ‘Mordecai Bowden (no. 20 on map) is on the Delaware River south of the Manor of Pennsbury; Thomas Terry’s land (1683) was adjacent but does not appear on this map ca 1681 from J. H. Battle, History of Bucks County…

     It is also probably a good assumption that there were fewer migrating Terrys in the 17th and 18th centuries than in the 19th. Bucks County was and is desirable farmland and was settled for the most part in the late 17th and early 18th century; people looking for tillable land after that time were more likely to go to the Western Reserve (Ohio) as did several of the Bucks County Terrys. There are Terrys in the Philadelphia County 19th century censuses who were not born in Pennsylvania, but these are for the most part not migrating American Terrys, but Irish emigrants. This genealogy attempts to incorporate all known Terry evidence in Bucks County to date, but some of the family connections are therefore of necessity somewhat fanciful; effort has been made to identify these connections appropriately.

 

Generation Two

    2. Jasper Terry (Thomas1) was born abt 167517,18 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. He married in 1710 in Bucks, Pennsylvania Susannah ____ of Bucks, Pennsylvania. She was born abt 1689.19 Jasper of Bristol Township sold his father’s patent in Falls Township in 1714 to John Bown (recorded Apr 7, 1715), witnessed by Edmond Lovett, Edmond Lovett, Jr. and William Baldwin.20

     Jasper and Susannah Terry had three21 children all born in Bucks County:

  6 i. THOMAS TERRY was born 1711, Makefield Township, Bucks, Pennsylvania; died 22 May 1792 Southampton, Bucks, Pennsylvania. He married Jane Neeld.

  7 ii. JOHN TERRY was born 1713 Middletown, Bucks, Pennsylvania; died 1789 Wrightstown, Bucks, Pennsylvania. He married (1) Rachel Heston Lacey and (2) Sarah Walmsley.

 + 8 iii. JASPER TERRY was born abt 1715 of Falls Township, Bucks, Pennsylvania. He married 29 Jul 1735 at New Jersey Mary Hart daughter of Thomas and Ester (Miles) Hart of Falls Township, Bucks County.

    3. Clement Terry (Thomas1) was born abt 167722 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania and died 1763 in Bristol Borough, Bucks.23 He married Anne ____.

    4. Thomas Terry (Thomas1), a cooper, was born abt 1679 of Southampton Twp, Bucks, Pennsylvania. He bought and sold land there (1714, 1730).25 He married Mary____ of Bucks County. He probably had children in Southampton Township.

    5. Joshua Terry (Thomas1) b. abt 1681 in Bucks County. He was a witness to a land record in 1706.26 He probably had children in Makefield Township.

 

Generation Three

     Due to the paucity of available primary sources for this period, descendant assignments have been very difficult. What assignments have been made are consistent with Pennsylvania Septennial Censuses27 (tax records) and with the U. S. Censuses of Eastern Pennsylvania of the period 1790-1840.

    8. Jasper Terry (Jasper2 Thomas1) born abt 1715 of Falls Township, Bucks, Pennsylvania.28 He married29 29 Jul 1735 at New Jersey Mary Hart daughter of Thomas and Ester (Miles) Hart of Warminster Township, Bucks County.

     Thomas “the Elder” Hart was born 1685 at Byberry Township, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. They were very active Quakers. Mary was their oldest born abt 1718 at Warminster, Bucks, Pennsylvania. They had other children: (2) Aaron born 1733 at Augusta County, Virginia, (3) Thomas Hart (md Mary Morgan), (4) Miles Hart born abt 1737 (md Delilah).31

     Jasper and Mary followed her father south to Botetourt County, Virginia; no more is discovered of them in Bucks County.32,33

    9. Clement Terry Jr. (Clement2 Thomas1)37,38 born abt 1700 in Bucks County, Pennsylvania; died after 1784 of Lower Makefield Twp, Bucks.39,40,41 He probably died before the 1790 census42 as he would have been abt 90 years and the Clement of the census (Upper Makefield Twp, not Bristol) had smaller children in his household (all females). He married43 17 Jul 1721 at the Presbyterian Church, Abington, Philadelphia County Jane Johnson.

     Clement Terry and his wife had children in Bucks County.44

OTHER BUCKS COUNTY TERRYS THAT CANNOT BY ANY DIRECT EVIDENCE BE TIED TO THE THOMAS TERRY 1653 LINEAGE

     These Terrys are divided into two groups: The first group comprises Terrys that are likely or proven descendants of Thomas Terry of Bucks (b. 1653) but supportive evidence is not available. The second is comprised of those ‘cousins’ (see ‘Addendum 1. Analysis of Terry Y-DNA Markers’, this website) that are probable descendants of the Southold (Long Island, New York) Terrys, but who lived and generated sources in or near Bucks County.

Group 1. These Terrys of Bucks County are likely the 2nd great- grandsons or great-grandsons of Thomas Terry (b. abt 1653) of Bucks by unknown linkage through his sons Clement Terry (3) b. abt 1677, Thomas Terry (4) b. abt 1679, or Joshua Terry (5) b. abt 1681. It is not likely that any are descended through the first son Jasper (2).

_________

A. THOMAS TERRY_of Ohio, b. abt 1750 of Bucks and died before 1830 of Ohio; the key reference is his Bucks County 1779 marriage record vide infra. It was originally believed that Sarah Ashburn was a second wife to Thomas Terry, son of Thomas and Jane (Neeld) Terry. However, that Thomas’ wife Olly Davis died 1841 and is buried at Pennepack, Philadelphia County. Susanna Terry’s will (a dau of Thomas and Jane (Neeld) Terry vide supra indicates Olly was a widow in 1805 and does not name Thomas_of_Ohio’s boys that were born in Bucks before Susanna died. Therefore there must be two Thomas Terry’s of Bucks, both born abt 1749.

Genealogy:

    1. Thomas Terry was born abt 1755 of Bucks and died before 1830 at Alum Creek, Morrow, Ohio. He married 17 Jun 1779130 Sarah Ashburn b. 1752 daughter of John and Juliann (Jolly) Ashburn.131 They were Quakers.

She was born140 16 Jul 1788 at Lynchburg, Campbell, Virginia and died 11 Apr 1864; buried in the Fairfield Quaker Cemetery.141 They had, among others, sons William P., Thomas, and James W.

28. The choice of Jasper b. abt 1675 as Jasper Terry’s father is arbitrary (he could as well be son of Clement, Thomas, or Joshua). The name Jasper is unusual and does not occur in any of the other American Terry genealogies of the time period except the Virginia Terrys and then only after this Jasper had moved there with his in-laws, the Harts. Considering naming patterns of the time, a father naming his son Jasper after himself is slightly more likely than naming him Jasper after a brother.

32. In 1739 Jasper Terry purchased a cow from Samuel Worthington (today near Charles Town, WV), and was working in Orange County, Virginia.

In 1753 Jasper was working with William Terry, the Browns, and Jasper’s brothers-in-law Aron Hart and Miles Hart on a road from Carravan’s Plantation to Wm Bryan’s at ‘Roan Oak’ (Roanoke River area); this contribution also outlines the Hart family group; see Spruell 4748 (accessed 15 June 2018). Original citation: Lyman Chalkley Chronicles of the Scotch-Irish Settlement of Virginia, 1745-1800 (Virginia: M. S. Lockwood, 1912) Vol 1, p. 61, 24 Nov 1753.

33. This author thought it was possible that the Jasper Terry married to Mary Hart is the same as the one who married to Mary Morrison and who fathered Josiah Terry in 1755 in Virginia; Y-DNA data do not support this as Jasper Terry/Mary Morrison descendants are Haplotype G lineage 2, not the Bucks County Terry Y-DNA type of Haplotype I lineage 2. Perhaps Mary Hart Terry died and Jasper left him with his brother family to raise while he dashed off to Virginia with his in-laws.

34. John Terry’s 1788 Will: Acknowledges the presence of ‘Joseph Terry, a nephew’ (who ran John’s farm). We have a problem here—if Joseph really was a nephew, then he must be Jasper’s son or father Jasper (b. 1675) must have had another child we don’t know about, because if Joseph were Thomas’s son and her brother, Susanna would surely have mentioned it in her will (see Susanna’s Will) as she was so scrupulous about naming all descendants. Croft Antecedants indicates that ‘nephew’ is wrong, and Joseph is actually David Terry’s son (Thomas’ grandson, 17, b. 1774, Addendum 2); this suggestion is also untenable as he would have been an infant when then tax rolls of the 1770’s describe him as a single man on the John Terry farm.

35. Joseph also appears in the tax rolls living with uncle John as discussed in Croft Antecedants, p. 138, 140 and Appendix VIII, Terry Family Tax Records 1779-1787, pp. 231-232.

45. The choice of Clement, Jr. as William’s father is arbitrary, but is the most likely circumstance; the fact is that the identities of Thomas’ or Joshua’s children, if they exist, are not known and are therefore not chosen.

46. The choice of Clement, Jr. as Jane’s father is arbitrary; the fact is that the identities of Thomas’ or Joshua’s children, if they exist, are not known and are therefore not chosen. It is possible Jane is not a descendant of Thomas b. 1653 at all, but came to Bucks from parts unknown.

55. About the ‘Jaspers’. There are three of them to worry about in Virginia in this time period: Jasper #1 (b. 1715 md Mary Hart), Jasper #2 (b.1742 of Botetourt, md Mary Morrison), Jasper #3 (William’s son b. abt 1760 md Ruth). The Jasper, friend of William’s who worked with him, has to be his cousin (#1)—the other two are unborn or too young. This is the one (#1) who was given acreage on the Roanoke River at Mud Lick Run. The Jasper #2 who married Mary Morrison left no real records in Botetourt, but lived in neighboring Montgomery County and died there abt 1826; by he is not a relative of William’s (see Terry Addendum 1.; www.29deadpeople.com; William is Haplogroup I—descendant of Thomas Terry of Bucks b. 1853—and Jasper is Haplogroup G). Look at the children’s names: William and Rachel are the only ones who named a son Miles after William’s work companion Miles Hart; Wm’s son Jasper #3 had a son Miles as well.

193. Their purported dau Catherine Pool (b. 1841) appears in the collection of teenaged visitors/workers (other cousins) in the Thomas Montanye family in the 1860 U. S. Census of Northampton, Bucks (Montanye 1850/1860).

 

194. It probably makes most sense to place Christiann and Rachel Terry as sisters, as they married brothers. She has been placed as a sister to Isaac Banes Terry because of her origins in Warminster Twp that she shares with all sibs. She has that ‘Johnson’ middlename which makes one want to place her as a gdau of Clement Terry, who married a Johnson. She could also be a dau of Martin Hyleman—except she is not mentioned in his 1813 will and the other gchildren are mentioned (she might have been born after Martin’s death in 1813). As additional evidence for her as a dau of Richard Terry, the 1860 census (Montanye 1850/1860) has several cousins as part of the family group: Thomas B. Terry, Catherine Pool, Griffith M. Terry.

205. This Rachel Terry is often referred to as ‘Rachel Heston Terry’ on various family trees. Actually, after examining all the records relevant to her—she is just plain ‘Rachel Terry’ in all records except her death certificate, where her name is ‘Rachel K. Montanye’; and on Findagrave, where the name ‘Heston’ appears as a middle name. Since there is no photo of the gravestone it is not possible to say whether she was buried with the name Rachel Heston Terry Montanye or not.

206. Influenced by the ‘Heston’name (now shown to be of little importance), Rachel was originally placed in the John Terry lineage since John Terry b. 1713 married Rachel Heston Lacey. But there are good reasons why this cannot be: (1) There is no proof of the middle name ‘Heston’ which would link her to the John Terry family, (2) Secondly, Rachel’s dau, Annie Montanye has shown up as a match in the at-DNA of Ronald Lee Terry of Tennessee (RLTerry). Since the John Terry after John Lacey Terry (b. 1777) does not carry the Terry DNA (see John Terry essay, Addendum 3), it is clearly impossible that Rachel is a John Terry descendant. Other RLTerry at-DNA matches are consistent with him as a descendant of the Thomas or Clement/Joshua line, but clearly not the John Terry line (see Addendum 1).

    Hello,

    I was wondering if you had any additional information on Joseph R Terry (son of Ralph Terry, number 120)? All you have is an approximate date of birth of 1819. I have a great, great, great grandfather by the name of Joseph R Terry, b. 14 March 1818 in Pennsylvania, d. 19 Sep 1890 in Maryland. He was married to an Edith Waterman Livezey (b. 3 March 1832, m. 1848, d. 27 Sep 1908). I’ve been unable to trace him back any further, but wonder if there might be a connection to your entry here.

    Any information you have (either to confirm or deny this connection) would be greatly appreciated, thank you!

      Thanks for your query. I do not have additional information on Joseph R. that is not in the essay; the Croft history cites the Esther Reed will, but the reference is specious. The Esther Reed will (Joseph R’s great-aunt) is actually a file in the Orphan’s Court record in the Spruance Library that it took me a whole morning to find as it was filed improperly. It clearly names Ralph’s five children with Joseph R. being the oldest. There is an affidavit from the sheriff saying that Joseph R was not findable for division of Esther’s property. Since he left home before 1850 I can only assure you there are no other records in Bucks, Montgomery, or Philadelphia Counties (I did not look in Maryland).
      I am virtually certain that your ancestor is the same Joseph R. Terry who is Ralph’s oldest son. My reasons are these: 1. He is not in Pennsylvania after 1850; 2. He named three of his children with Edith after three of his sibs–John, Charles, and Sarah and a fourth after his mother; 3. I checked on the origin of Edith Waterman (dau of Jacob Ott and Priscilla Waterman Livezey) and they came from Montgomery County PA (1840 census) just over the line from Bucks and therefore very close to Southampton Twp. This said…I would love to have an additional source just to be sure. But if it is ok with you I will include this in the next iteration of the essay.
      Please share any additional information or sources you have with me. I will be glad to send you copies of any refs you would like to have.

    Hello,

    This is very interesting information that you have provided. I am of the Croft family and was wondering if you could provide me additional information on the Croft family that you have cited under, “James Croft, His Antecedents and Descendants”. James Croft left Vermont where my family remained and still currently reside. I would love to have the opportunity to share this information with my family so we could reconnect with Croft’s who moved west.

    Any information that you could provide would be great!

      Yeah, thanks for your comment. This is a terrific book and although I have copied much of it for my own files, I do not have the whole book. It is not an eBook and has not (yet) been digitized, but is only available in various libraries…see worldcat.org. I read it in the Family History Library in Salt Lake City. Other copies are in the Wisconsin Historical Society, 3 copies in Illinois libraries, the St. Louis County Library, the New York Public Libary and HisGen in Boston. Good luck.

    Hi.
    Andrew Terry, born abt. 1803, possibly in Philadelphia, married Ann Enochs (of the Enochs family who were marble cutters in Philadelphia and Montgomery County) in 1839 in Philadelphia, and died September 1862 in Philadelphia, was my 3X great grandfather. Per the 1850 and 1860 censuses, Andrew was born in Pennsylvania.

    My brother, a few distant cousins, and I have been unable to find any record of who Andrew’s parents may have been. Something keeps bringing us back to Bucks County.

    I have a DNA match on Ancestry with a Kyle Terry who has his tree going back to the 1653 Thomas Terry. However, since his tree is private, I am unable to see the list of our other potential common surnames, one of which could be our actual DNA match rather than Terry.

    Andrew had 4 children, 3 living into adulthood and marrying. Edwin, Mariba, and Archibald all made their way to Chester County as teens and young adults (while parents seemed to have stayed in Philly). Mariba and Archibald married and then went on with their spouses to Ohio. Edwin, my 2X great grandfather stayed in Chester County, where our line of Terrys continued until my generation.

    I’m wondering if my 1803 Andrew could be a descendent of one of 3. Clement’s unknown sons or of 4.Thomas or 5. Joshua.

    – Maria

    Hi…thnx for your very interesting note. It sounds like you are on the right track suspecting that Andrew could be a descendant of Clement Terry. I have no information on an Andrew Terry, b. abt 1803…sorry. I tried to find the Kyle Terry tree on Ancestry, unsuccessfully. ‘Kyle Terry’ is not in the member directory.

    If you have any other information about him that would allow me to find his tree and possibly communicate with him, that would be a big help.

    Ancestry has made it hard, difficult and maybe impossible to find a tree unless you know the author’s name in the member directory. If you have DNA results from Ancestry, this will undoubtedly be autosomal. What we really need is his Y-DNA profile (from FamilyTreeDNA), this will tell us in a heartbeat whether he is a descendant of Clement. Unfortunately, there are quite a number of confounding Terrys from the NC/VA Terry lines who were born in or around Philadelphia, but didn’t stay there. Please let me hear from you again, write me at tolman29@yahoo.com.
