Blog Query: Samuel “the Quaker” Worthington

Received this from Texana

iS Captain Worthington kin to Samuel Worthington the Quaker who married Sarah Simcott? in PA

My Reply was:


If by Capt Worthington, you mean Capt John Worthington (1650 – 1701), then no. Samuel “the Quarker” Worthington, came into “West Jersey” much later then Capt John. I have done some research in this line as well as Capt John. Samuel’s line can be found is mid-Pennsylvania, and Charles Town (WVA / VA) after leaving West Jersey.

Capt John’s line stayed mostly in Maryland.

Hope that Helps.

I will post this on the Query board.

Thank you,
