  • Notes 
    • The first mention of Edward is in an Exchequer Bill in connection with the collection of the customs at Plymouth, in 1658. His name appears first in the enumeration of taxables.

      The the Plymouth Friends had purchased a 5377 acre property on the Schuylkill River with the idea of setting up a woolens business. There they cut down trees and made a number of improvements including, in 1687, a road to Philadelphia. Fox (and his partner Francis Rawle, Jr. (1663-1727), who stayed in Philadelphia from the beginning) decided to sell out to a group of Welsh Quakers and Fox appears to have been located in Philadelphia by 1688.

      Other information relates to a lease, September 2, 1700, for sixty-three years, taken by "Edward ffox, of Plymouth, Clothier," for a messuage, brewhouse, and appurtenances, situate in the town of Plymouth, near "the Great Tree."
