bullet   FamilySearch ID: GQBR-H6P.


bullet  General Notes:

Birthdate is only 6 months after marriage date of her parents although there are different dates of that marriage.. Some sources show birthdate as Feb 29, 1725. Doubtful that that was a leap year day.

In 1757 she had to defend her "misconduct" at several Women's Meetings and that lasted over a period of several years. It wasn't until 1762 that she was evidently forgiven for any misconduct and on February of that year she requested a certificate to remove to Abington, which was approved at the June 1, 1762 women's meeting.
An entry in the Abington Men's Minutes meeting in 1794 mentions that Sarah Stockdale is in need of relief from the Committee of the Poor. (PA > Montgomery > Abington MM > Men's minutes, 1782-1797, Vol 6. > Image 142.) This was evidently granted for in the minutes at the end of 1799 money, 22.2.6 was authorized to pay to her.

Removal: to Wrightstown MM, 2 Jul 1754, Newtown Township, PA. 1564

Religion: Quaker testimony against, 6 Sep 1757, Newtown Township, PA. 1565 Wrightstown MM
At the next meeting she produced a paper defending herself which then, at the first meeting in 1760, the matter was considered again and concluded NOT to accept "what she hath offered" - two women appointed to return her paper to her.
This was then revived at the December, 1761 meeting when "Sarah Stockdale appeared again with a Paper in order to condemn her misconduct, which this Meeting takes into Consideration."
This paper was accepted at the meeting a year later, Jan, 1762.


Sarah married William Stockdale 17 Apr 1746 in Middletown, Bucks Co., PA.1561 (William Stockdale was born in 1723 and died in 1755.)
