1616 "Thomas Fouke of Codnor & Dorothy Cham, of ^ [pointing to Codnor above?] wear maried ye 30th of October" at Heanor, Derbyshire, England. [1][2][3][4][5]

Research Notes:

We are researching potential ancestors of Thomas Foulke, who emigrated to New Jersey, with wife Mary. We suspect that they were Thomas Fauke, son of Thomas and Dorothy Fouke, and Mary Richardson, daughter of Henry Richardson of Bolsover, who were married on November 14, 1654 at Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England. We suspect that Thomas Foulke and Dorothy Cham, married on October 30, 1616 at Heanor parish, Derbyshire, were the parents of Thomas. We seek further documentation to clarify these possibilities.

Notes, some of which refer to a different Foulke family, were reported about Thomas Foulke [10][11]:

Thomas Foulke, father of Thomas Foulke Jr, and ancestor of Esther Syng Bunting, wife of George Middleton Justice, was first of the name to come to America. He was born 1624, and 1677 was living at Holmgate, in ye parish of Northwingfield, County of Derby, England, when he purchased of Mahlon Stacey, of Hansworth, York, one-fifth part of a share in West Jersey. In the same year he was sent out by William Penn and the other purchasers from Byllinge, of the lands of West Jersey, as one of the nine commissioners of the Proprieters, to sell lands, etc. He sailed with the other commissioners in the Kent and after a tedious voyage landed at New Castle, August 16 1677, from whence they proceeded to Burlington, to treat with the Indians for the land. He located at Crosswicks, in what became Chesterfield township, where he died 1714, aged ninety years. His wife Mary died April 16, 1718, aged eighty-nine years. His daughter Mary married Samuel Bunting, ancestor of Esther Syng (Bunting) Justice; her sister Sarah married John Bunting, brother to Samuel; another daughter, Hannah, married Anthony Woodward, and the son Thomas Foulke, Jr., married Elizabeth Curtis in 1688. Thomas Foulke was an early convert to the principles and faith of Friends, and a friend of William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania. It was in a letter from Penn to Thomas Foulke that the founder states his Welsh origin, and explains the adoption of the name for his new Province. He had selected the name of New Wales, but King Charles was not satisfied with the name, whereupon Penn suggested "Sylvania," meaning woodlands, by reason of the virgin forest that was supposed to cover the country. The King taking the pen wrote into the grant the name Pennsylvania, and when Penn protested that the title savored too much of personal vanity, the King said, "My good fellow, do not deceive yourself, this is in honor of your noble father, the Admiral," with which explanation the founder was compelled to be content." [However, the Edward Foulke family described in this reference [page 930], of Welsh origin, is apparently unrelated to this Thomas Foulke, born 1624.]
