bullet  General Notes:

H.M. Jenkins:

Hugh removed from Gwynedd to Richland, probably about the time of his marriage. A memorial of Richland MM says: "He was a member of our meeting for about thirty years, the latter part of his life. He had a good gift of the ministry, which we believe he endeavored faithfully to discharge. …His last illness which was very sharp, he endured with much patience and resignation…He died on the 21st of 5th mo., 1760, in the 75th year of his age, and the 40th of his ministry." From Hugh are descended all the Foulkes whose origin is traceable to Richland, and no doubt a majority of the members of this family now living are of his line. A family memorandum says: "All their [Hugh and Ann's] children lived to marry and raise families, except Edward. In seventy years after their marriage, the number of their posterity was 343, and in 1810 was estimated at upward of 500, of whom 115 bore the name of Foulke." 2


Hugh married Anne Williams. (Anne Williams was born on 8 Jan 1694 in Merion Township, Philadelphia County, Pennslyvania 2 and died on 10 Sep 1773 in Richland Twp, Bucks Co., Pennsylvania 2.)
