Good to get your message about Gleave.I have never had any response at all about my query.
Briefly, I will try to explain what I have.There is a marriage intention at Providence MM in Chester County, Pa., in 1730 for David Newburn and Esther Gleves.I do not know if that marriage ever took place because there is nothing further in the minutes to indicate that they ever married. Buckingham and Wrightstown MM extracts: "2 mo 7 day 1730, David Newbourne had certificate in order to marry Esther Gleave of Providence, Chester Co."
Providence MM was close to Chester MM and there were Gleaves at Chester and Goshen.I did a little checking and found the following. Goshen, 1728/9 John Gleave, Chester Co., and Elizabeth Eachus, 9-1-1728.3-19-1729, Gleave, Elizabeth granted certificate to Chester. Chester, 9-2-1691, Esther Gleave - Joseph Ware 10-28-1730, Gleave, Esther married out of unity to John Crosier.This was just 7 months after she had supposedly married David Newburn. 1706/7John Gleave & Elizabeth Miller, their children 1.George 2.John 3.Esther, b. 10-27-1712 Born in 1712, this Esther Gleave might have been the one who supposedly married David Newburn in 1730.Course it could have been the earlier Esther too.
To further complicate issues there is a marriage for David Newburn, Buckingham, Bucks Co., Pa., to Hannah Ashton, Spinster in V. 22, NJ Archives, 4 Dec. 1733.
I have not found any trace of this David Newburn or his family after they were disowned by Friends from Wrightstown MM in 1766 when they buried one of their children at Plumstead and set up a stone.Friends were uneasy and advised them to take the stone down.They wouldn't do it so were disowned and "disappeared".
I don't have any further data on Esther Gleaves, but would love to learn more. Hope this hasn't been too confusing. Marilyn
