[530] Weaver and a Quaker. Born in Stoak, a hamlet near Exeter in Devonshire England, 1666. In
1712 his son, George Jr, Sarah, and Squire went to Pennsylvania to spy out the land. On the
17th of August 1717, the parents went to Bristol and sailed for Philadelphia. They arrived
October 10, 1717. George went on to serve for many years as justice of the peace, and when
he became too old and frail to continue, the position passed to his oldest son, George Jr. They
"joined themselves to Gwynedd Meeting." When population growth led to the division of Oley
township in 1741, the section in which the Boones resided was renamed Exeter, in honor of their
English origins.

"The First 5 Generations of the George Boone Family"
The Boone Society, Inc., October 2006
"Also, the Boone Society has Stoke Canon Parish baptism records for three children of George
Boone II and wife Sarah: (1) Henry; (2) George III; & (3) John. Although they may have had
other children, only records of three children have been found. These 3 records are:
(1) 'Henry Son of George Boone was baptized the nineteenth of October 1663. Henry Son of George
Boone was buryed ye eighth of February 1663.' (Note: In the old style reckoning [Julian
calendar], March 25 was the beginning of the year, therefore the infant Henry would have been
about 4 months old at his burial.)
(2) 'George Son of George Boone was baptized the Nineteenth of March 1666.'
(3) 'John Son of George Boone was baptized the twentieth day of April 1673. John Boone was
buryed the 18th day of April 1693'."

(Reprinted, Genealogical Publishing, Baltimore, MD. 1974)
pp19-23: "George Boone Third (son of George Boone Second and wife Sarah Uppey), born in 1666 at
Stoak, England, a village near the City of Exeter in Devonshire; died 27 July (Old Style) or 7 Aug.
(New-Style), 1744, in Exeter township, Berks Co., Pa., aged seventy-eight years. Married Mary Maugridge
(b. 1669 in Bradninch, England, eight miles from Exeter in Devonshire), a daughter of John and Mary (Milton)
Maugridge. George Boone and wife Mary were members of the Society of Friends (Quakers;) in Callumpton,
Devonshire, from which Meeting they took a letter of recommendation to the Society of Friends in America.
Whether they were dissatisfied with their condition as Quakers in England, or whether they were impelled by
that desire for adventure and travel which was later so strongly manifested in Daniel Boone and his brothers,
will never be known. On the 17th of August, 1717, with six children, George Boone and his wife left the town of
Bradninch in Devonshire and went to Bristol, where they set sail for America."

pp3-8: "Life of Daniel Boone"
"Daniel Boone was born in Bucks county, Pennsylvania, October 22, 1734. His grandfather, George
Boone, was a native of England, and resided at Brandwich, about eight miles from Exeter. In 1717 he
emigrated to America, with his family, consisting of his wife and eleven children, two daughters and
nine sons. Soon after his arrival in America he purchased a large tract of land in what is now Bucks
county, Pennsylvania, settled upon it, and named it Exeter, after his native town."

ancestor in America, had been a weaver in England."
