  • 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.
