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 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 Bowden7, some of the first settlers of what became Bristol Twp, Bucks County.8,9  On 14 Jul 1683 William Penn granted unto Thomas Terry 200 acres of land near his father-in-law Mordecai Bowden.  He directed his surveyor, Thomas Holmes, to have surveyed unto Terry a piece on the back of Bowden’s land.10,11

   Thomas and Sarah (Bowden) Terry had four known children, all probably born in Bucks:12,13

+   2    i. JASPER TERRY, born abt 1675 of Bucks, Pennsylvania.  He married Susannah____ of Bucks County.14

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

     4  iii. THOMAS TERRY, a cooper, was born abt 1679 of Bucks, Pennsylvania.15   He married Mary____ of Bucks County.

     5   iv.  JOSHUA TERRY, b. abt 1681 in Bucks County.16

 

    Thomas’ origins are unknown (see essay Origins of Thomas Terry, b. abt 1653, 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..’.  .17

 

   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.

    Occasionally there is additional support for the assumption that all Bucks County Terrys are one extended family and note of this is made in the essay citations, e. g. the William Terry, b. 1750 (56) had a son Charles (164) who married Margaret Worthington (these Terrys are not proven to be a descendants of Th. Terry 1653).  Yet Henry B. Terry (a 2ggson of Th. Terry 1653) and a son of John Henry Buckman Terry (127) had a grandson b. 1879 that he named Alfred Worthington Terry.  There is no other known explanation for the use of the family name ‘Worthington’ other that these two Terry families were known to one another and therefore probably related.

64.  The choice of Jasper b. abt 1675 as Jasper Terry’s father is arbitrary (although he could as well be son of Clement, Thomas, or Joshua) as is his assignment to the Thomas Terry 1653 lineage.  The name Jasper 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.

66.  There are references to Jasper Terry working in Orange County, Virginia as early as 1739 and working with his brothers-in-law Aron Hart and Miles Hart in Virginia in 1753 (see JSpruell contribution at  www.genforum.genealogy.com/terry/messages/4748.html by jspruell@earthlink.net (accessed 23 Mar 2012)).

67.  Jasper is such an unusual name for the Americas, this author thinks it is highly likely that the Jasper married to Mary Hart is the same as the one who married to Mary Morrison and who fathered Josiah Terry in 1755 in Virginia (see Family Trees at Ancestry.com: Michelle Earnhart’s Family Tree (owner: earnhartm), tree 11483733 online at trees.ancestry.com/tree (accessed 9 Feb 2013).  No marriage has been found for Jasper/Mary Morrison and no deathdate for Mary Hart Terry either; the ages of the ‘two’ Jaspers are estimated to be the same and both were in Virginia at the same time.  Mary Hart Terry could have died in childbirth, although we have no record.  This would perhaps explain how Jasper could leave Joseph with his newly married brother John to dash off to Virginia with his in-laws.

68.  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 (therefore Thomas’ grandson, 34, b. 1774); 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.

69.  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.

73.  The choice of Clement, Jr. as Daniel’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 Daniel is not a descendant of Thomas b. 1653 at all, but came to Bucks from parts unknown.

    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.
