         This web page does not intend to be the definitive Haines family site. It is only interested in the line from Richard Haines to Anna Maria Haines Price. It also includes siblings and children of these individuals. If you have additional information or corrections about any of them I would be glad to hear from you at .

         We have eight generations in our Haines line in this country, but I've been unable to push it back farther in England than the emigrant generations. Information given here on the first five generations is from John Wesley Haines, Richard Haines and his descendants, A Quaker family of Burlington County, New Jersey since 1682[1] unless otherwise stated in the notes.

         This web page is a shortened version of a longer book about my Price line and more than two dozen collateral lines, set in a larger historical and social/cultural context. It covers about 250 years.


Immigrant Generation


         [See an explanation of the National Genealogical Society's Numbering System used on this web page.]

         Richard Haines1 was born in 1639, a husbandman in Aynhoe, or Aynho, King's Sutton Hundred, in the extreme south west corner of Northamptonshire. He died while crossing the Atlantic in 1682/3. Richard married Margaret LEEDS[?].

         The village of Aynho is on a rocky hill 2¾ miles east by north from Deddington. It was a Roman town, and the Roman Portway (a Roman feeder road) runs through the parish and is (or was) visible at the eastern end of the village. During the Commonwealth Robert WILD, Presbyterian minister, poet, and satirist, held forth in St. Michael's, the parish church. He was ejected from the living in 1662, after the restoration of the Stuart monarchy. In 1671 Mrs. Mary CARTWRIGHT founded a free school in the village.[2] This is the village our ancestors would have known.

         Richard and his wife Margaret became Quakers sometimes between 1672 when one child was baptized in St. Michael's parish church in Aynho, and 1676 when the birth of their next child was listed in the records of Banbury Monthly Meeting, Oxfordshire. Banbury, although across the Cherwell River in Oxfordshire, is also part of King's Sutton Hundred. The baptism of their son Richard, Jr. on August 6, 1665 is the first mention of Richard Sr., I've found in English records.

         Richard and Margaret's oldest son, John, emigrated to the new world with the John BORTON family, another Quaker family from Aynho.

         Richard was a husbandman, but had accumulated enough capital to be a First Purchaser of 100 acres of land in West Jersey. He made the purchase April 21, 1682 from Edward BYLLYNGE. It may be that this land was laid out in Eleventh Month [January] 1682/3 along the south side of the South Branch of Northampton River, in the name of their eldest son, John "Hayes".[3] Two days after the purchase the family sailed from the Downs on board the Amity. They were fellow passengers with William and James Paxson and their families. During the voyage Richard sickened and died. Soon after, Margaret gave birth to their son, whom she named Joseph.[4]

         It really required the labor of two parents to survive in their new home, and Margaret married for the second time, May 6, 1685, Henry BURCHAM, or Bircham, of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. The marriage was under the care of Burlington Monthly Meeting and held at the house of Thomas GARDINER in Burlington.[5]

Aug. 6, 1665 at St. Michael's church, Aynho, Northamptonshire; had married Mary CARLILE by 1696 when they both signed the marriage certificate of Francis AUSTIN and Mary (BORTON) Austin; the myth that Mary Carlile may have been a Native American has been put to rest by recent research.[7]

Second Generation


         John Haines2, eldest child of Richard and Margaret Haines, was born about 1664, and died in November 1728. He married twice, in 1684 to Esther BORTON, and in 1722 to Hannah Whitall Wood. His birth and baptism were not recorded in Aynho, Northamptonshire, while the baptism of his brother Richard was recorded there in August 1665. This leads to an unproved assumption that John was born elsewhere, and his parents moved to Aynho when he was an infant.

         John became a member of the Religious Society of Friends along with his parents sometime between 1672 and 1676. In 1679, when he was about 15 years old, John removed to West Jersey with the family of John BORTON, who also lived in Aynho. They probably sailed on the Griffith. For the record, there were other Quakers named John Haines (with the usual spelling variations) living in England and suffering for their faith. Besse lists a John Haines in Faringdon, and a John Haines in Watchfield, Berkshire, both in 1685. Neither are our young man, who was living in the Delaware Valley by this time. I do not yet know the relationship, if any of these other Haineses.

         It is said that when he first arrived John lived in a cave in "Haines Bank" on the south shore of the Rancocas, below Lumberton.

         On Tenth Month [December] 10, 1684 John and Esther BORTON, the daughter of John and Ann (KINTON) Borton, were married under the care of Burlington Meeting in the house of Thomas Gardiner, where John's mother would marry her second husband. Esther had been born Fifth Month [July] 25, 1667, and died in 1719.

         John was a farmer, and gradually became a large landowner. The first recorded survey of land was dated Eleventh Month [January] 1683, mentioned above. In 1687 he purchased 100 acres from Percival TOWLE. He purchased 100 acres on the south side of the Rancocas Creek in 12th month 1691/2. In 1693 he purchased 200 acres from the executors of Thomas OLIVE and 200 acres from Samuel JENNINGS. He bought 85 acres from his brother Thomas in 1694. Between 5th month and 11th month 1693 he became listed as "of Evesham Township", Burlington County, West Jersey.[13]

         Esther died in 1719. John married for the second time in 1722 at Woodbury meeting house, under the care of Haddonfield Monthly Meeting, Hannah Whitall Wood, the widow of James WHITALL and Henry WOOD.

         John continued to make real estate purchases in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.[14] In 1702 he bought 965 acres in Goshen Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania, from the estate of Pennsylvania Governor Thomas LLOYD. Today the city of West Chester south of Gay Street is on part of this land.[15] Of this he conveyed to his son John 365 acres in 1715.[16] John bought another 254 acres in Chester County in 1710. The next year he joined Richard HAINES, William HAINES, Thomas WILKINS, John BORTON, Benjamin MOORE, and Jonathan HAINES to purchase a tract of 2240 acres of farm and wood land in southern New Jersey, named "Friendship Tract".

         John's will was dated November 4 and proved November 21, 1728. It mentioned his "now wife" Hannah and nine surviving children. His real estate included the home farm, a saw mill and lot, a farm of 245 acres adjoining his brother Richard Haines, land at the Hay Landing, and land at Goshen bought of Isaac Norris and David Lloyd. He also had personal property inventoried at £362.4.0, including a servant boy whose remaining time was valued at £12. His son Jonathan and son-in-law Thomas LIPPINCOTT were named executors. The will was witnessed by William HAINES, Mary WHITEHALL, and John BURR.[17]

         After John's death Hannah removed to Gloucester County, New Jersey. Her will was dated December 5, 1731, and affirmed December 26 the following year. Children of John and his first wife Esther (Borton) Haines:

He married in 1714 at Providence Meeting under the care of Chester Monthly Meeting Catherine DAVIS. She was the daughter of Ellis David/Davies. They brought their first intentions on Sixth Month [August] 30, 1714 to Newton Meeting, under the care of Chester Monthly Meeting. It was reported on Eighth Month 25 to Providence Meeting that the marriage had been accomplished in good order.

         Isaac moved from Newton Meeting in New Jersey with a certificate of removal that was accepted on Fifth Month [July] 26, 1714 by Providence Meeting in Pennsylvania under the care of Chester Monthly Meeting. He settled as a farmer in Goshen Township.

         Isaac served as an Overseer of Goshen Meeting from 1722 to 1725/6. Catherine served in the same office from May 18, 1730 to April 17, 1732.

         In 1742 Isaac and Catherine deeded 150 acres to their son Isaac4, who then sold it in 1764.[23]

         Isaac's will, dated Seventh Mo. [July] 6, 1766, was proved August 16, 1768. In it he gave his son Isaac 20 shillings, since he had already given him a plantation in Goshen. Son Ellis was given a plantation of 146 1/4 acres and 20 shillings. Son Josiah was given the plantation his parents had been living on, containing 133 acres. Daughter Sarah was given a "case of drawers", grandsons Isaac Yarnall and Hugh Derbrow were each to be given 10 shillings when they reached the age of 21. The remainder of his personal estate went to his wife and three daughters: Hannah EACHUS, Mary MARTIN, and Lydia WILLIAMS. The executors were his son Isaac and friend George ASHBRIDGE, Jr. (the son of our ancestor). The will was witnessed by Thomas HOOPES Jr., Thomas SCHOLFIELD, and Isaac HAINES (son).[24]

         Catherine's will, dated 19 February 1776, was proved 17 September 1785. She left each of her sons, Isaac, Ellis, and Josiah, five shillings apiece. Her daughter Hannah EACHUS was given her riding mare and furniture (meaning saddle, bridle, etc.). Granddaughter Lydia, the daughter of Lydia WILLIAMS, was given a bed, etc. Grandson Hugh DURBORAH was to be given 5 shillings when he reached age 21. Grandchildren William WALN and Tamar WALN were each given 5 shillings. The remainder of her estate was given to her three daughters who were then living. Executors were her friend Randal MALIN, who renounced the task, and her son Ellis. Her will was witnessed by James GARRETT and James ARNOLD.[25]

Fifth Generation


         Isaac Haines5, son of Isaac Jr. and Mary (Cox), was born about 1750 in West Chester, and died Fourth Month 29, 1837, nearly 87 years old. He married April 23, 1772 Lydia DAVIS, daughter of Ellis and Lydia (ASHBRIDGE) Davis of Goshen. They were married under license at St. Michael's and Zion Church in Philadelphia rather than according to the order of Friends.[36] Lydia was born 16 November 1749 and died 15 Ninth Month 1845. Isaac was reported to Goshen Monthly Meeting for his marriage, but acknowledged his misconduct and was retained in membership.

         During the American Revolution Friends were listed on the muster rolls along with all other resident men. If they turned out for muster days they were dealt with by their meetings. If they failed to appear they were fined, and refusing to pay the fines, suffered the distraint of goods. Isaac was reported to Goshen MM Tenth Month 11, 1782 for paying a military fine. Isaac Haines is listed on the Goshen muster roll, 7th class, for the year 1784, but was absent all 6 days: April 19, April 26, May 4, Oct. 4, Oct. 11, and Oct. 19.[37]

         Isaac served as a justice of the peace.

         Isaac died Fourth Month 29, 1837, nearly 87 years old. His will was dated Tenth Month 11, 1827, written when he was "far advanced in life". The total estate came to $3570.25.[38]

Sixth Generation


         Ezra Haines6, son of Isaac and Lydia (Davis) was born December 2, 1774. He married December 9, 1802 Ann JOHN, the daughter of Reuben and Lydia (TOWNSEND) John. She was born December 26, 1776 and died October 8, 1834. Ezra died May 28, 1861. Ezra was disowned for marriage contrary to Friends discipline.[47]

         For a while Ezra farmed on rented land. Then ca. 1808 he moved his family to Elkland, Lycoming County. By 1811 they were living near West Chester. By May 1831 Ezra had moved into West Chester to run a flower store.[48]

         In the 1850 census, taken August 12, 74 year old Ezra was living with his son Eber, both of them listed as merchants in West Chester. Eber was 35, his wife Sarah Anne was 38, and their daughter Ella D. was 2 years old. There was also 12 year old Mary E. Denny, attending school, probably a sister or niece of Sarah. Ezra owned real estate valued at $4,400.[49] (Eber's wife was Sarah Denny.)

         On June 18, 1860 we get another snapshot of Ezra, this time he was listed as 86 years old, with real estate worth $2,800 and personal estate worth $2,500. He was living with Hugh Sloan, a 60 year old day laborer, and his wife Maoma [sic] (58) and their daughters Mary (22), Elizabeth (20), and Hannah (19), along with Cornelia Osborn (4). This year the census did not enquire as to the relationship among the various inhabitants of the house. It may have been an ordinary boarding situation. Hugh had real estate worth $1,200 and personal estate of $150.

         Ezra died the next year, May 28, 1861. His will, dated Tenth Month 13, 1860, directed his heirs to sell his house and lot on Chestnut Street in the borough of West Chester. Son John T. was given $10, and son Reuben received $100 and all the room furniture and Ezra’s watch. The residue was to be divided into five equal parts, going to his surviving children Lydia Jefferis, Eber D., Reuben, and Jane D. Townsend.[50]

Seventh Generation


         John Townsend Haines7, eldest child of Ezra and Ann (John), was born October 24, 1803 in West Goshen Township. John T. died December 22, 1885 in the 83rd year of his age.[54] John married May 14, 1829 Hannah W. WILLIAMS, the daughter of Abraham and Rachel (WHITE). She was born August 11, 1807 in East Bradford Township, and died April 9, 1896.[55]

         John T. was a house carpenter and builder at a time when window frames and floors were hand made rather than factory or milled. Probably for these skills he was on the building committee of the Independent Order of Odd-Fellows, West Chester Lodge No. 42, from about 1831 to 1834, when the building was sold at sheriff's sale.[56]

Horticulture Hall, photo by MJP Grundy, Nov. 2009

         John was a member of the Chester County Horticultural Society, founded in 1845, incorporated in 1848. That year the Society decided to erect a building at 225 N. High Street. It cost $1,222.69 ¼ in the account book of Thomas DARLINGTON, mason; John T. Haines signed for it (treasurer? Pres?) Besides the exhibitions of the society, the place became the town meeting hall and from 1850 to the end of the century hundreds of men and women in every field lectured here: Horace GREELEY, Lucretia MOTT, Sojourner TRUTH, Ralph Waldo EMERSON, and scores of others. Nearly all the town's church, school, and larger social events were held there. It was the second building in the country erected for these purposes. Later it was used as a town meeting hall, exhibition space, theater, and today is the home of the Chester County Historical Society. In the 1873 panic and depression the Horticultural Society was no longer able to keep it, and the building was sold at a sheriff's sale.[57]

         John went to the California gold fields of Tuolumne County, and stayed there a total of some thirteen years. He was involved in two companies. The City of Sonora Tunnel Company, a joint stock company organized for mining purposes had the right to run a tunnel under Washington Street.[58] This venture did not pan out, and in 1863 he tried again with the Severance Gold, Silver & Copper Mining Company. John also served as Probate judge and Land Surveyor.[59]

         Meanwhile, in 1860 Hannah was enumerated back in West Chester. She was 53, making ends meet running a boarding house. But in a way she might have meant it somewhat ironically, since the four people living there were all related. She herself had real estate worth $1,800 and personal estate of $400. In the household were her daughter Alice B. Haines, age 14, in school; granddaughter Allawilda [sic] Haines, age 4; and her father "Abram" WILLIAMS, age 77. His occupation was listed as "gentleman", as if that were self-explanatory. He owned real estate worth $1,000 and personal estate of $14,000.[60]

         John returned from California and got a job in his brother's banking house. In the 1870 census taken June 28, John T. Haines was listed as 66, a clerk in a bank, with real estate valued at $5,000 and personal estate of $15,000. His wife Hannah W. was 63, keeping house. Living with them were grandchildren Allawilda [sic], age 14, and Joseph T., age 12, both in school.[61] As an assistant in his brother's E.D. Haines & Co. banking house he was noted for his "uncommon accuracy and reliability."[62]

         Ten years later, the census was taken again. This time John T. Haines was a 75 year old watchman in a bank, while 73 year old Hannah W. kept house. Alawilda, 24, was a clerk in a bank, and Joseph F. [sic] at 21 was "learning trade", unspecified.[63] It was said of John T. Haines that he was "inflexible in his purposes, which were directed by strong convictions and an intelligent understanding which had been largely aided by extensive reading."[64]

         In May 1881 Alice B. KNICKERBOCKER and her two children came from New Lennox, Illinois, for a two month visit to her parents in West Chester. When a great grand daughter (Sue Price PAXTON) was brought to visit, the newspaper exulted that there were five generations in the house on West Barnard Street.[65]

         John T. died December 22, 1885 at the age of 82 years. His body was interred in the Friends Burial Society Cemetery, 404 Rosedale Avenue, West Chester. The funeral was held Seventh Day, December 26, at his home on West Barnard Street, from which the procession left at 2:00 p.m. for the Burial Ground. It was written that John was "exceedingly kind and affectionate in family intercourse, loyal in his friendships".[66]

         Hannah died April 5, 1896, at 7:30 in the evening, aged 89 years. Her body was buried in the same cemetery as her husband. Hannah's will was affirmed April 11. She left $400 to her granddaughter Annie J. PAXTON; $1500 to her son Thornton G. Haines; $100 each to granddaughters Mary J. Haines and Lulu A. SISBEE; and $200 to grandson Joseph T. PRICE.

To continue the story of this family, go to Price. The larger Price line, with many collateral lines, including this Haines branch, has been expanded as a hard copy book with considerable historical context. To learn more about the times in which these family members lived, you might want to read The Price Family in History. It gives a lot of social, religious, economic, and political context for the lives of these ancestors. The book is available on lulu.com. The price is the cost of printing and binding, plus shipping. I earn nothing on the book.

This Haines line connects (directly or indirectly) with these families that are described in the Price book: Ashbridge, Bonsall, Borton, Cox, one David/Davies, and the other (Ellis) Davies, England, Fisher, this Haines line, Harry/Harris, Hayes, Holliday, John, Jones, Kirk, one Lewis (Henry), the other Lewis (Thomas), Malin, Morgan, Orbell, Paxton, the main Price, another Price (Richard), a third Price line (David), Sharpley, Schumacher/Shoemaker, Taylor, Thomas, Townsend, Warner, Williams, Wood, and Wooderson. Some of these are very short, as I do not follow them after "my" ancestor married into another surname family. In time other lines may be posted, too.
