  • Notes 
    • Sir Isaac Pennington brought his family to reside at the Grange, in the parish of St. Peter's, Chalfont, Buckinhamshire. Only a small portion of the old building win which they dwelt is now standing. On its site a modern villa has been erected.
      The Grange was a happy home in those by-gone days. It was an abode where mental refinement, literary taste and evidences of an abiding sence of God's Presence pervaded the resident family. They were the aristocratic leaders of the Quaker movement. The Pennington's settled there in 1658, the same year that Oliver Cromwell died. Both wrote
      books that are referred to even today and seems as contempory in their thinking as religious thinking is now. They were friends and collegues of Penn.
      Isaac Pennington was a follower of Cromwell.
      Fox was a quaker leader, however he was from a lower social station than the Penns and Penningtons in England.

      This parentage is very questionable.

      Noted Quaker writer and philosophical leaders. Howard H. Brinton's "Friends for 300 Years", 1964 p. 79: "William Penn (writing) in his introduction to Pennington's works: 'He became the wonder of his kindred and familiars for his awful life and serious and frequent retirements declining all company that might interrupt his meditations.'"
      p. 82: "As a young girl, Mary Proud, later the wife of Isaac Pennington, took the first of a series of steps which led her to the Quaker position by reflecting on the text, 'Pray without ceasing.' This, she realized, could not refer to formal praye
      out of a book, the only kind she then knew..."
