NOTES:

  Sometime in the early 1700s George Boone, III, who was born in Exeter, Devonshire, England in 1666, and was a weaver by trade, sent his three oldest children, George, Squire, and Sarah, to see what life was like in the new colonies of America. Evidently they sent back a favorable report, for on 17 August 1717, George Boone, III, along with his wife, Mary Milton (Maugridge) Boone, and their six children set sail from Bristol, England headed for a new life in a new world across the ocean.     George Boone, III and his family arrived in Philadelphia on 29 September 1717. In 1720 he built a log cabin in Oley Township (now Exeter), Berks County, Pennsylvania. He became a tanner as a means of earning an income in Pennsylvania. By 1733 George had built a large stone house on the same property. That house is still standing. After he had completed the construction of the stone house, he gave it to his children and continued to live in the little log cabin till he died in 1744.     About a mile and half away from George Boone's homestead is located the Exeter Society of Friends Meeting House, which was established there in 1737. George and Mary Milton (Maugridge) Boone were members of this church back in England and had brought with them a letter of recommendation which they presented to the church in America. George and Mary are buried in the Exeter Friends Cemetery. They were Quakers. Quakers do not believe in marking the graves of the dead therefore there are no markers on the graves. An old family Bible records;      "When Grandfather died he left 8 children, 52 grandchildren, and 10 great grandchildren living, in all 70, being as many persons as the house of Jacob which came into Egypt."      http://www.mpcps.org/boone/ancestors/george-grfa.shtml     Sources: "Boone Family" by Hazel Atterbury Spraker, 1922; "Some Boone Descendants & Kindred of the St. Charles District" by Lillian Hays Oliver, 1964; "Daniel Boone Lineage," Daniel Boone Home, Lindenwood University, St. Louis, Missouri, 2002.     they left Bradninch the 17 Aug. 1717, and went to Bristol where they took Shipping, and arrived at Philadelphia in 1717 September 19, Old-Stile, or October 10th New-Stile; three of their Children, to wit, George, Sarah & Squire they sent in a few Years before. From Philadelphia they went to Abingdon, and staid a few Months there; thence to North-Wales, and liv'd about 2 Years there; then to Oley in the same County of Philadelphia, where Sarah (being married) had moved to some Time before. This last Place of their Residence (since the Divisions made in the Township of Oley & County of Philadelphia) is called the Township of Exeter in the County of Berks: It was called Exeter, because they came from a Place near the City of Exeter. And,     He the said George Boone the Third, died on the Sixth Day of the Week, near 8 o'clock in the Morning, on the 27th of July 1744, aged 78 years; and Mary his Wife died on the 2d Day of the Week, on the 2d of February 1740-1, aged 72 years; and were decently interred in Friends Burying-Ground, in the said Township of Exeter. When he died, he left 8 Children, 52 Grand-Children, and 10 Great-Grand-Children, LIVING; in all 70, being as many Persons as the House of Jacob which came into EGYPT ...     The baptisms of three sons of George Boone and Sarah Uppey are recorded in the register of Stoke Canon Parish in Devonshire, England, along with the burials of two of them, as well as the interment of George and Sarah.[REFER: Stokes Parish Register]
