PREFACE
Before beginning the actual genealogy of the William and Sarah (Strange) WINNETT family, it is important to build a background from Which to start. Some of this background is based on court and census Records, some on notes which their grand daughter, my grandmother Margaret (WINNETT) RIGG left in an old chest, some on equally valid information supplied by proven descendants, some on tradition and some on deduction on my part. Sources are given as the reader
will know in which category the information lies Needless to say there will be errors even the every effort has been made to guard against that possibility.
No effort has been made to trace William WINNETT back to his home in England All branches of the family agree with Grandma that he came from Liverpool, England. Grandma said he had lived there with a wealthy uncle who begged him to remain with him and promised to leave him his worldly goods if he did. However, at about 15 years of age. William could resist the urge of adventure no longer and came to America No date is known, but there is a "chest" which he treasured enough to mention in his will and is still with the family possession, so he must have brought it from England
Naturally tradition slopped in with various accounts of his coming to America One was that as a tiny lad he was bribed with candy - penknife   Another, when a bit older, he was bribed to come, then was bound out to service until he became of age The version I grew up with has a few extra flourishes. Two Winnett brothers were kidnapped in Liverpool As they neared America the ship was attacked by pirates and both boys jumped overboard William swam to shore, the other was never heard of again It was with this in mind that, thinking of where he could have landed. I asked the librarian in the Pennsylvania Room of Carnegie Library. Pittsburg. Pennsylvania, if they had any records of Wilmington. Delaware. I was amazed when I found the marriage of William WINNETT and Sarah STRANGE listed in the records of Holy Trinity (Okl Swedes) Lutheran Church. To further boost my version. Series 2, Volume. 13, page 245 of the Pennsylvania Archives, edited by Dr. Egle, Michael V. WINNETT was listed as a soldier. Dr. Egles's work is never questioned. I wondered for awhile if Michael could have been the missing brother, but decided that he probably was a figment of Aunt Ella's imagination since she loved sad ending to all of her stories. It is no fiction that Michael V. WINNETT did exist or he would not have been in the Archives. The French did fight with us in the Revolutionary War, WINNETT is a French name
even the William came from England, so Michael may have been a Frenchman here for he war. He has not appeared in any other records I have found. At the march meeting of the 1963 meeting of the Huguenot Society of Pennsylvania, I was accepted as a descendant of William WINNETT, a Huguenot. Anyone wishing to follow their own line back to William WINNETT can do so in the following pages. Grandma left a story of her grandfather's service in the Revolutionary
War, but no official records have been found to substantiate it.
According to Grandma, he fought at the Battle of Brandywine and was among the 400 prisoners taken by the British. When brought before the English General, William was recognized as the nephew of a good friend in England. He was given his freedom, but was told his uncle was a very rich man and would like him to return to England. It is not surprising that no record of his service has been found. Few records were made of the personnel of the Battle of Brandywine, and of those that were made, many were destroyed when the British burned Washington in the War of 1812.
For the background of Sarah STRANGE, wife of William WINNETT, we must go to the early days of Philadelphia. Just imagine! What today is the fourth largest city in the United States was in 1727, a village four blocks in depth and it extended not more than a mile along the Delaware River. Within that tract, on Second Street between Arch and Market. Christ Church was built in 1695. George Washington, Robert Morris and Benjamin Franklin worshiped there. Name plates designate these pews. Seven signers of the Declaration of Independence were buried in the churchyard.
As the village grew, so did the church and by 1727 the west wing was added. Near the end of that year. November 2, 1727, Jonathan STRANGE, a clothier, brought his sweetheart Susannah THOMAS to be wed (page 32). In 1744 the church was again enlarged to cover the entire block and in 1824 the interior was changed, but it stands, the oldest church in PENNSYLVANIA in CONTINUOUS use. And to think that our early ancestors were married there.
According to the tax lists as recorded in the Historical Society in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Jonathan STRANGE lived in London-Britain Township in 1729 and in Darby in 1730, page 32. He then disappeared from the Pennsylvania records. John THOMAS. Susannah"s father, was taxed in Darby or Upper Darby from 1715 until 1726. His will (page 90) was probated May 31,1727. There were many John Thomases in Christ Church, but none were in the burial lists of 1727 so evidently he was not one of the members. Also Chester County tax lists had many John Thomases. The years rolled along and we find that Jonathan and Susannah STRANGE moved south into Christiana Hundred, New Castle County. Delaware In Delaware they use the name "Hundred" instead of our more familiar term township" Other changes also took place with the advent of seven daughters, no sons (page 90). My time was too limited to look for grantee deeds, but by August 15. 1737 Jonathan sold property in Wilmington, so I assume he went to Delaware soon after his taxes were paid in 1732 in Pennsylvania. That means that some of the daughters were born in Delaware, and as Sarah was named last in all the records, it is safe to say she was born in Delaware. After Jonathan STRANGE'S death, settlement deeds (page 84) gave the names of all of the daughters and their husbands except Sarah, she married later. It is well to note STRANGE was also spelled STRANGE in the same deeds, which my denote Scottish ancestry. There is also LeSTRANGE from France, but I did not find that spelling in our papers.
Jonathan STRANGE married Susannah THOMAS November 2. 1727, both from Darby Township. Chester County. Pennsylvania He died Jury 1758 Susannah died between 1764 and 1770 as she signed the settlement deeds in 1764 but not in 1770.
Catherine married Jozehad LODGE, a weaver, deed written 1762 Mary named John BACKHOUSE deed written 1764 Elizabeth married Jesse KIRK, tailor of Darby Township. Chester County Susannah married John GOTSAM deed 1764; named John GOULD deed 1770 Elenor STRANGE married Adam DUNLAP deed 1764 Frances married October 15. 1763 Joseph LOBB clothier, Old Swedes Church Sarah married William WINNETT Jury 27 1773, Old Swedes Church. I was interested in following the families through to some extent so looked for the 1790 census for Delaware. It had been destroyed by fire However, the Historical Society had a census reconstructed based on the tax lists of 1790. The names which seemed most likely to be related to the STRANGE girls were:
LODGE, Samuel Sr., Christiana Hundred, New Castle County, Delaware LOGE, Samuel Jr. BACKHOUSE. Strange  BACKHOUSE. Jacob Brandywine     GOLDE, Strange Christiana DUNLAP. John LOBB. Joseph
The will of Jesse KIRK (page 93) was found in the Chester County records in the Historical Society in Philadelphia I am interested only in the WINNETT family and by 1790 William and Sarah WINNETT were in Washington County, Pennsylvania where he was listed as WHINNETT Old Swedes Church in Wilmington. Delaware is unique in that it is the OLDEST church in the UNITED STATES in CONTINUOUS service It is very Picturesque from any view, but the one usually shown is the entrance through an archway, the ground floor for the plantation owners a stairway to the balcony where the slaves sat There is a large Cemetery surrounding the building Inside, the lectern is to the right, the pulpit to the left, a beautiful stained glass window in the center front with a table below the window On this table is an altar cloth embroidered by the King of Sweden and presented to the church The pews still have doors, each pew has a reading board for hymnals and prayer books The official title was Holy Trinity (Old Swedes) Lutheran Church Episcopalians now own it, worship there and keep it and the Hostess House in excellent condition
The Sunday we worshiped there we, being Methodists, became confused with the ritual The lady behind us kept telling us where to turn through out that part of the service. Later I turned to thank her and learned she is the niece of Mother's closest friend in Wilkinsburg Of course both Mother and her friend are gone.
There is no STRANGE and no WINNETT in the carefully kept list of members, yet two of the daughters were married there I did not find them again until they appeared in the tax list of 1781 in Bethel Township. Chester County (now Delaware County) Pennsylvania   Taxes as given in the Pennsylvania Archives Series 3. Volume 12. pages 441 and 562, 60 A, a cow and a horse.
In 1781 a part of Westmoreland County was portioned off and made into a separate county, Washington. From the beginning the boundary line had not been too clearly defined, with Virginia claiming the southwest portion of what is now western Pennsylvania, calling it Augusta County. Virginia The Pennsylvania grant claimed the same territory Each sold plots of ground to the settlers, sometimes the same ground Each established a courthouse within a short distance of the other Even tho the Mason Dixon Line had been established between 1763 and 1767, it was not until the close of the Revolution that it was actually honored The territory was all wilderness, but people were moving in, probably because families along the seaboard were being urged to go west to claim the land and keep the French from gaining control of the Ohio Valley Until flooring could be laid, the settlers had to sleep in hammocks or bunks built up from the ground as snakes would come in for the night and coil on the earthen floor.
When William and Sarah WINNETT came to Washington County, some time between 1785 and 1790, conditions were very privative. Coming into forest country, space had first to be cleared, logs hewn, sidings and roof built, all this in hostile territory with Indians and wild beasts forever on the prowl. Even tho now we have much sympathy for the Indians, at that time they were savages and often attacked without cause or warning. To be sure,
there were some peaceful tribes who befriended the settlers, but for the most part, (hey were a wild and unpredictable people, angry that others should encroach upon their free hunting ground. One thing must be said in their defense. During the French and Indian War the French stirred them up against the English, and during the Revolution War the British troops used them to harass the settlers west of the Allegheny Mountains.
One story that has come down through the years in our family is both funny and descriptive of the times. Adah WINNETT, son of Jonathan and Mary WINNETT. born 1806, had a successful day hunting pheasants. As he caught them he fastened them to his belt. On the way home he sat down on a log to rest a bit. All at once he sensed danger, looking up he saw and Indian back of him raise his tomahawk. He ran and as the Indian would gain on him, he would drop a pheasant. The Indian would stoop to pick up the bird and in that way Uncle Adah reach home. Adah was pronounced A-Day. I have found no records that would give me the actual birth dates for either William or Sarah STRANGE WINNETT, so will use the rule given in the "How Book", page 57. published by the Everton Publishers, Logan, Utah. The father's age is usually 26 and the mother's age 22 at the birth of their first child. It is. of course, but and indefinite guess, but does serve when dates are not known.
