By will dated May 5, 1764, Emanuel devised his property as follows: To heirs of son Joseph Grubb, five shillings beside what he has already; to son Thomas Grubb, the same; to heirs of son Nicholas, five shillings; to heirs of son James five shillings; to son Benjamin, five shillings beside what he has had; to heirs of son Peter, five shillings; to daughter Edith Thatcher, £20 beside what she has had; to daughter Ann Black £30 beside what she has had; To son Emanuel the residue of the estate, subject to the maintenance of his mother, Ann Grubb, during her life.

The Penn's Gazette of August 20, 1767, contains the following obituary:
"On the 10th instant, at Brandywine Hundred, in New Castle county, died Emanuel Grubb, in the 86th year of his age, and the next day was interred in St Martin's churchyard at Lower Chichester, in Chester County, attended by a large number of relations, neighbors and acquaintances. He was born in a cave, by the side of the Delaware River, not far distant from where he always lived, and died, and was the first child born of English parents in this Province. His constitution was remarkably healthy during his whole life, having never been afflicted with any sickness till a few days before his death. His strength and activity were surprising to a man of his age; he could mount and ride a horse with as much dexterity as a lad of twenty. A few months ago, he rode from his own house to this city and back again in one day, which is upwards of 40 miles. His memory was equally surprising, and not in the least impaired, till his death; he could remember transactions of a late date equally well with those, which happened in his younger days. He was exceedingly temperate in his living; seldom making use of spirituous liquors; and for his friendly disposition was highly esteemed by all that knew him. This instance, among many, is a proof of the longevity of people born here."

In 1727 Emanuel was commissioned as a justice in the Court of Common Pleas. [5]

COUNTERPART LEASE. On 18 June 1745 Peter Grubb of Chester County, yeoman, to John Crosby, Caleb Pearce, Peter Dicks, Jacob Carter, John Pennell, John Crosby, Jr., George Churchman & Daniel Walker of Chester County, & Peter Worral of the county of Lancaster, all yeomen, Ebenezer Curry of the City of Philadelphia, merchant & John Wallace of the City of Philadelphia, merchant, partners & company of iron works called Cornwall Furnace & Hopewell Forge.

Delivered in the presence of George House, Francis Yarnall, Joseph Wall & Gabriel Davis. Recorded 28 Mar 1754. (IJ9:122). [29]

HOPEWELL FORGE. Lancaster County, Later Lebanon County:
Peter Grubb erected this forge on Hammer Creek, six miles southeast of Cornwall, before building the large blast furnace at the latter place. He had taken up the land in 1737. Hammer Creek was the largest stream in the neighborhood and furnished excellent water power. Two Hopewell forges were built here. Peter Grubb may have run one as a bloomary or Catalan forge, bringing the ore from Cornwall for that purpose. [30]

CORNWALL FURNACE. Lancaster County, Later Lebanon County:
Acrelius, the Swedish historian, writing in 1756, of "Cornwall, or Grubb's Iron Works in Lancaster County," said: "The mine is rich and abundant, forty feet deep, commencing two feet under the earth's surface...Peter Grubb was its discoverer." Peter recognized the possibilities of these hills. They were called the Large Iron Hill, Middle Hill and Grassy Hill.
On the 8th day of May, 1732, John, Thomas and Richard Penn, for the sum of £500, money of Pennsylvania granted a warrant for five thousand acres of land in the Province of Pennsylvania to Joseph Turner of the city of Philadelphia, who afterwards assigned it to William Allen. By agreement, April 5, 1734, William Allen sold three hundred of the five thousand acres of the land called for in the warrant, to Peter Grubb for the sum of £135, who procured a patent deed for it from the proprietaries on the 30th day of November, 1737. This grant, however, did not entirely embrace the ore hills, so the evidently clear-sighted Peter Grubb made two other purchases of land from the Proprietaries, which made him sole owner.
An indenture in the possession of the Grubb family, reads as follows: "On the 22nd day of September in the thirteenth year of the reign of King George the Second over Great Britain, France &c, Anno Domini 1739, between Peter Grubb of the township of Warwick in the County of Lancaster, of the Province of Pennsylvania, Iron Master, with Samuel Grubb of East Bradford, in the County of Chester, a Charcoal Furnace to be build, & to be called Cornwall__"
Planned thus in 1739, and first in blast in 1742, Cornwall furnace began its long existence, being named for Peter Grubb's ancestral county in England. Having been blown by its owner for three years, it was, in 1745, along with the Hopewell forge which belonged to Peter Grubb, leased to twelve persons, who managed it for a few years only, under the name of the Cornwall Company. For the remainder of the term it was conducted by Jacob Giles, a Quaker of Baltimore.
Peter Grubb remained sole owner of the ore banks until his death in 1754 when they became the property of his two sons, Curtis and Peter. Curtis as the elder son, under the intestate law of that day, received two thirds; and Peter received one third. Both Curtis and Peter were colonels in the Revolution. Under the ownership of these patriotic colonels, Cornwall furnace, during the war, cast cannon, shot, shell and stoves for the Continental Army. A letter relative to cannon cast at Cornwall follows:
PHILADELPHIA 18 September 1776
To Col. Peter Grubb,
Sir, By Capt. Joy I understand you have at last made some 12-Pounders, but I fear they are heavier than they ought to be. Those made by Col. Bird weigh but 27 c and some under.
You have drawn on the Committee for £1500, it is not sent because the matter is not understood. We can't suppose you want such a sum to carry on the Works, & you certainly don't desire the Cannon to be paid for before they are delivered.
The sum you draw for is the value of the Guns already made, & as the contract was made with your Brother, Col. Curtis Grubb (Tho' you may be equally interested with him), yet I should like to hear from him before so large a sum was paid; however, I have sent you by Capt. Dan'l Joy one thousand dollars. I mentioned to Congress your inclination to have some of the prisoners from Lancaster to work for you, but it was supposed the Committee of Lancaster would object to it. I hope you will make all expedition in making the Cannon & getting them down, for they are much wanted.
The Cannon must be proved with two shott, or they will never be put on board the Ships. I am your hum'l Serv't. R. T. Paine
In 1783 Curtis granted and conveyed inter alia to Peter Grubb, his eldest son, and to his heirs and assigns forever, the full equal undivided one-sixth part of all his estate, including the Cornwall ore banks or mine hills. In 1785 Peter Grubb, son of Curtis Grubb, entered into articles of agreement with Robert Coleman to sell and convey to him, all his right, title and interest of, in and to the said undivided one-sixth part of the estate above referred to. In 1798 Robert Coleman had purchased from the various Grubb heirs five-sixths of the ore banks--the remaining one-sixth being held by Henry Bates Grubb. [30]
