  • Notes 
    • "The beginning of this parish dates from the founding of the settlement here by Edward Lane. He purchased in 1698 a tract of 2500 acres, part of 500 acres originally granted in 1681 to one Thomas Rudyard, who came from London and became Deputy Governor of East Jersey. The conveyance to Edward Lane in 1698 was confirmed by patent in 1701. William Penn was on very friendly terms with Edward Lane, and when the latter went to England to visit his father, William Lane, a Quaker, then living in Bristol, England, William Penn solicited him to carry some dispatches to the home government.

      When the division took place among the Society of Friends in Philadelphia in 1695, brought about by the preaching of George Keith, and leading to the founding of old Christ Church, Edward Lane, whose father and himself were Quakers, left that sect and joined the Episcopal Church. The early efforts of Edward Lane were in the direction of advancing the interests of the little settlement at Perkiomen, in which he seems to have been much interested..." [2]
