Description

In the 17th and 18th centuries, Friends generally kept records of the births and deaths of only those who were members. If a child was born to two Quakers in good standing at the time of the birth they were considered "birthright." This volume is unusual because it includes not only members of the Society of Friends, but also, entered separately after 1692, "An Account of the burialls of Such as are not Friends within the town of Philadelphia." Also includes births, 1677-1808, removals received, 1681-1758; acknowledgments, 1695-1698; births, 1783-1827; Deaths, 1806-1826. Indexed.
