    Notes for The Immigrant Francis, Fincher:
    Francis, " The Immigrant ", was one of the early settlers with a land grant from William Penn. He was considered a friend
    of William Penn's. He was asked to be the speaker of the First Assembly of PA in 1684, but declined. He took an active
    part in politics and government. He is referenced in the book, "History of York Co., Pa." by John Gibson. Chicago 1886
    (772, 207p.) :286-7, 289.

    The Colonial Society of Pennsylvania 1950, page 95, shows membership for Francis & Mary (Achelly) Fincher, John &
    Martha(Taylor) Fincher, Joseph & Rebecca ( Fincher) Bennett, James & Rebecca (Bennett) Rankin, Abraham & Catherine
    (Coppenheffer) Rankin, John & Ann (Moore) Rankin, William Washington & Maria Amelia (Jefferies) Rankin, and John
    Hall Rankin.

    I believe alot of other information can be found on this man though the PA history resources. William Penn's journals, Early
    History of Philadelphia and Pennsylvania, History of Chester Co., etc. Lord willing, I will check them out one day.

    The Levering Family History and Genealogy tells alot about the land that Francis and Mary owned in Pennsylvania. The
    original land patent was granted to Francis from William Penn, by a warrant dated 25 April 1684. It was confirmed to
    Francis by a Deed from Penn's Commissioners, dated 4 November 1691. It consisted of at least 300 acres, and was
    described as follows by Wickert Levering of the county of Philadelphia, Yoeman, as follows:

    "All that tract of land situate on the east side of Schoolkill, in "the county aforesaid, beginning at a White Oak on the River
    "Schoolkill; thence by the land now in the tenure of the said "Wickert, east-northeast, five hundred and thirty perches to a
    post "standing in the line of Germantown land; Thence North-West and "by north, by the said Germantown land, ninety one
    pershes to "another corner post; Thence West South-West, by the land late of " James Claypoole, five hundred and fifteen
    perches, to the said "Schoolkill, beginning, containing three hundred acres of land."

    This 300 acres was purchased by Wickert Levering from Christopher Sebthorp, of Philadelphia, Brazier, and Mary his wife,
    late widow of Francis Fincher. It was conveyed for the sum of sixty pounds. This purchase gave Levering 500 continuous
    acres, which today is part of the " Pride of the Philadelphians", Fairmount Park, which includes the Levering Cemetery.

    It is not known, yet, which ship Francis emigrated on, but it could be that he traveled from England with William Penn. If
    this is true, the following story will be of great interest. It was found in 1749, having been kept in the archives of an old
    Quaker Meeting in Rhode Island. It was printed in the New York Learner and Teacher, and is as follows:

    "SEPTEMBER YE 15, 1682.
    To ye aged and Beloved,
    MR. JOHN HIGGINSON.

    There be now at sea, a ship called the Welcome, which has on board an hundred or more of the heretics and malignants
    called Quakers, with W. Penn, who is the chief scamp, at the head of them.

    The general court has accordingly given secret orders to Master Malachi Huscott, of the brig Porpoise to waylay the said
    Welcome, slyly, as near the cape of Cod as may be, and make captive the said Penn and his ungodly crew, so that the Lord
    may be glorified, and not mocked on the soil of this new country with the heathen worship of these people.

    Much spoil can be made by selling the whole lot to Barbadoes, where slaves fetch good prices in rum and sugar, and we
    shall not only do the Lord great service by punishing the wicked, but we shall make great good for his minister and people.

    Master Huscott feels hopeful, and I will set down the news when the ship comes back.

    Yours in ye bowels of Christ,
    COTTON MATHER.

    NOTE: Carl Ward's wife, Norma, is a descendent of John Higginson, on her mother's side. He and Her ancestors were
    bitter enemies from the start.
