  1. 1.  Joshua Carpenter, #2 was born on 2 Feb 1720 in Pennsylvania (son of Samuel Carpenter and Mary Yates); died in Aug 1764.

    Notes:

    Joshua Carpenter, son of Samuel and Mary (Yeates) Carpenter, was born in Philadelphia, Pa., February 2, 1720-1. On the death of his father and remarriage of his mother, he put himself under the guardianship of Joseph Richards and John Inglis, who had recently married his cousin-german Catharine McCall. At the division of his father's estate, in 1746, he received, with other property, Mr. Samuel Carpenter's mansion on the north side of Chestnut Street, between Sixth and Seventh Streets, which, since 1738, had been rented to, and occupied by, the Honorable George Thomas, Lieutenant-Governor of Pennsylvania. This was afterwards sold by Mr. Carpenter. Land was purchased by him in the counties of New Castle, Kent, and Sussex on Delaware. Mr. Carpenter married, in Philadelphia, December 10, 1743, Armgott, daughter of John Johnson, of Philadelphia County, by his wife Christina, daughter of John and Armgott Skute, of Nitapkung, on the Schuylkill River, and granddaughter of Captain Sven Skute, of Sweden, a prominent officer and colonist of New Sweden. In his will Mr. Carpenter describes himself as "gentleman.'' He died in August, 1764. Mrs. Carpenter survived him many years. They had at least three children.

  2. 3.  Mary Yates was born on 4 Dec 1700 in Pennsylvania (daughter of Jasper Yates, Sr. and Catharine Sandelands); died on 19 Oct 1772 in Pennsylvania.

    Notes:

    Mary Yeates, daughter of Jasper and Catharine (Sandelands) Yeates, was born at Upland, December 4, 1700, and accompanied her parents to New Castle. She inherited her father's "plantation near the town of Chester," bought by Mr. Yeates of David Lloyd and Caleb Pusey, as well as Mr. Yeates's "one-half of the Milns at Naaman's Creek," with his "share of the lands," and so forth, "thereunto belonging."

    In 1719 she married Samuel Carpenter, son of Joshua Carpenter, an Englishman who settled in Philadelphia soon after the arrival of William Penn, and followed the occupation of brewer, rated the richest inhabitant of the town in 1693 next to his brother Samuel. Mr. Joshua Carpenter was the first Alderman nominated by Penn in the Charter of the City of Philadelphia, but declined to act “for a vow or oath he had made never to serve under" the Proprietor.

    In October, 1704, he was elected to the same office, but does not seem to have accepted the honour, and took no part in the direction of municipal affairs until October, 1705, when he was chosen Common-Council-man, and from that time until his death, in July, 1722, was one of the most active members of the corporation. He was, also, a Justice of the Peace, and a Representative of Philadelphia City and County in the Assembly of Pennsylvania. Mr. Joshua Carpenter's wife, the mother of Samuel, was named Elizabeth. She bequeathed her son a token of remembrance, with the explanation that his father had “already settled a very good estate on him and his heirs forever.''

    Mr. Samuel Carpenter was born August 14, 1686. With other Philadelphians he signed an Address to the Queen in 1709, "promoted," says James Logan in a letter to William Penn, "by most, if not all, the members of Council who are not Friends, not through any dissatisfaction to thee in general, but to the belief of a necessity of other measures for the security of their estates.'' He was a member of the Church of England, and a Vestryman of Christ Church from 1718 to 1721. In deeds he is styled "gentleman."

    Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter lived in a fine mansion, built by Joshua Carpenter, on the north side of Chestnut Street, between Sixth and Seventh Streets, with a garden extending for the whole square to Market Street. Mr. Carpenter died in Philadelphia in February, 1735-6, being buried from Christ Church the 26th. Mrs. Carpenter survived her first husband, and married, secondly, John King, who died, however, without issue. She died in Philadelphia, October 19, 1772. Mr. and Mrs. Carpenter had eight children, born in Philadelphia.

    "[Colonial and Revolutionary Families of Pennsylvania, Volumes I-III] Henry Whelen, Jr.The Yeates family was founded in America by Jasper Yeates, a native of Yorkshire, who, after some years spent in trading ventures in the West Indies, settled in New Castle county, now Delaware, later locating in Chester, Pennsylvania, serving as a justice of the Chester county courts, and as an associate justice of the Pennsylvania provincial court 1704-1711, and as a member of provincial council from December 25, 1696 to his death in 1720.

He was always a very strong adherent of and enjoyed the confidence of William Penn, by whom he was named for many important commissions pertaining to his colony on the Delaware, among them as dedimus potestatem, to administer the oath to several of the early Colonial governors. Jasper and Catharine (Sandelands) Yeates had four sons and two daughters.

    Their fifth child, John Yeates, born May 1, 1701, inherited his father's mansion, mills, wharves, etc. in New Castle county and at Chester and became a prominent shipping merchant, doing a large business with the West Indies.
