Notes for Richard Buffington Sr:

 

Richard Constable.Boveington, Emigrant ancestor

He and his wife came over on the "Griffith", landing at Salem on 25 Nov.1675.

 

Born: 30 May 1654, at Great Marie upon Themes, Buckinghamshire, England. Died: 26 January 1747-8, Chester County, Pennsylvania.

 

Richard Boveington (Bobbinghton) had arrived before the Pennsylvania name was given to the Province in 1674. An English Colony had been established at Salem, others in New Jersey and at Burlington in 1677, composed of Friends or Quakers. The jurisdiction of the Court of Upland (now Chester) extended over all the settled parts of what afterward became Pennsylvania, the records thereof from 1676 to 1681, having escaped destruction, form an interesting exhibition of the state of society in that period. The original spelling is used.

 

In order to raise money for the necessary expenses of government, in 1677, "a tax was levied on all the Tydables (taxables), a list of l36, including ten from the New Jersey side of the river." Among these was perhaps fifteen of English blood, the majority being Swedes. At Upland we are listed Robert Wade, "Rich Bobbington, James Sanderlands, John Test, Richard Noble, Henry Hasting, William Woodmancy and John Hayles (or Bayles-Beals?)."

 

(From the PROCEEDINGS OF THE CHESTER CO. HISTORICAL SOCIETY, 2d Mo. 20, 1702, "Some Annals of the Buffington Family", by Gilbert Cope, June 1965.)

 

After the coming of William Penn, a Charter for the Province of Pennsylvania was given in 1680. Richard Buffington was appointed Constable of Chester and served the Colony and the Crown well. At a Court on 6th day of the 11th month, 1684, "Richard Buffington is Ordered to Receive the Levies raised for the Cort house and Prison in the Township of Chester, also, Ordered that the Collectors of Levie for the Cort house and Prison shall be Considered for their time and Paines twelve pence in the pound." Ibid, p.50. (Spelling from old record, WMN).

 

He received several honors and increased greatly in land and prospered. He and his son made good marriages into the Vane and Grubb families who had for generations been of great value to Crown of England. These families extended the power of the Crown into the far away colonies of the British Empire.

 

He had three wives :( lst) Ann/ Annie Francis, married in “Old England” before 1675, and the mother of his first ten children. She died about 1695, and he married (2nd) Francis Vane Grubb, the window of John Grubb. (3rd) He then married Alice Palmer who was mother of his last three children. Richard became a Baptist in 1699, and remained a stanch member being the first of record to leave money to the Baptist Society upon his death. His son, Richard Jr. remained active in the Friends fellowship.

 

The Pennsylvania Gazette, June, July 1739, reported a gathering in May of his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren, to the number of one hundred and fifteen, in Chester County. Richard Buffington was then aged about 85, and declared himself still hearty and active and of perfect memory. His eldest son, then sixty, he said was the "first born of English descent in the Province." This claim did not hold good for the Chester Monthly Meeting of Friends, made the same claim for the son of John and Frances Grubb, but a daughter of Roger and Rebecca Pedrick, was born at Marcus Hook, on 7 July, 1678, having

 

actually been the first. Richard's death occurred in January, 1747-8, during his 94th year. Ibid, p. 51
