According to the 1730 deposition, John Woolrich was at the age of 35 years.  That would put him born in 1695.

The following information is from the history of “Holcombe, John whose descendants migrated to PA and NJ, 8 Generations” by Jon K. Holcombe:

John Woolrich was born May 22, 1695 and was a son of Thomas Woolrich and Sarah Cossinet.  John’s father Thomas Woolrich bought the first land sold by William Penn in Bucks County, Pennsylvania on April 1, 1681.  A deed to 1,000 Acres of land in Bucks County, PA.  Thomas Woolrich sold the land to his brother-in-law who then settled in Pennsylvania.  It is most likely Thomas Woolrich didn’t emigrate.

John and Elizabeth Woolrich lived in Norley, Cheshire.

On October 22, 1730, John Woolrich of Norley, age 35, yeoman, made a deposition concerning his witnessing of the Will of Jonathan Pickering of Crowton, Weaverham parish, Cheshire who was at the home of his cousin William Barker the younger of Norley.  Jonathan Pickering later died at his home in Crowton.

From the deposition:

“ .... that betwixt Eight or nine of the Clock, or thereabouts, one Evening .... in four Days he is sure after ye last Frodsham Fair ...... was on the tenth of August last, this deponent went to the House of William Barker the younger, in Norley, to be a witness ..... Will of Jonathan Pickering”.

John and Eliz. Woolrich were among the witnesses at the marriage of John Wallworth and Katherine Clare at the public meeting house in Penketh, Lancashire on April 24, 1741 (24 day 2 month “called Aprill” 1741).  The marriage is recorded in the Quaker records of Hardshaw Monthly Meeting.

Elizabeth Woolrich died at the age of 59 years on December 21, 1753 (21 day 12 month 1753) in Norley, Cheshire and was buried December 23, 1753 (23 day 12 month 1753) at Newton, Cheshire.  The death and burial was recorded in the Quaker records of the Cheshire (and Staffordshire) Quarterly Meeting.

Note:  In the Quaker records of the Cheshire (and Staffordshire) Quarterly Meeting, there was another birth record, of a “Jacob son of Jno & Eliza Woolrich of Over Whitley 19/10/1739”.   It is believed that the father is mistakenly written as “Jno” when it should of been “Saml”.

There was a Woolrich family living in Over Whitley, that of Samuel and Elizabeth Woolrich, who had children born in the same time period as of our John and Elizabeth Woolrich of Norley did.  It is believed that John and Samuel Woolrich were brothers.

From the Quaker burial records is the following:  Jacob Woolrich of Warrington [   ] Late of Over Whitley Died 10 (th day) and was Buried in Frandley 12/9/1767 Aged 28 years.  Again it stated “Over Whitley” so it is most likely that Jacob was a son of Samuel Woolrich of Over Whitley than of John Woolrich of Norley.
