Rudolph !Source:Immigration of the Irish Quakerspage 280 Christopher Pennock was married prior to 1675 to Mary Collett , daughter of George Collett, of Clonmell, County of Tipperary, Ireland. After residing there and in Cornwall, England, for some time, he emigrated to Philadelphia about 1685,and died in that city in 1701. A son, Joseph, born at Killhouse, near Clonmell, Ireland, 18 Nov. 1677, was a merchant in Philadelphiauntil about 1714, when he removed to West Marlborough Twp., Chester Co., and settled on a large tract of land, which he became proprietor by virtue of a grant from William Penn to George Collett, his grandfather. In 1738 he erected a mansion, "Primitive Hall," in which he died 27 Mar. 1771. (see pages 144-6) By his wife Mary Levis, he had twelve children, and account of whom may be seen in History of Chester County, p. 680. According to Bess's Sufferings of the Quakers, in 1660 (II., 467), 1666 (II., 475) Christopher Pennock, of Cork, Ireland, was imprisoned for attendance at Friends' meetings, and in 1670, for the same reason, he had 49 yards of "stuff" worth #2, 9s., taken from him, (II., 478). In William Stockdale's Sufferings (p.12), printed in 1683, he is mentioned as having 6s. taken from him for maintenance of a"Priest." In 1675, in Cork the "Priest" took seven shillings out of his "shop-box."Stockdale, 60. In Cork, in 1676, Mary Pennock for keeping shop open on Christmas day was imprisoned for one night. -- Stockdale, A Great Cry of Oppression, 231. In the summer of 1900, the writer saw the original MS. of Dr.John Rutty's Rise and Progresss of the Quakers in Ireland (in possession of John Pim, J.P., , a Friend, of Bonaven, Antrim Road, Belfast), bound in a piece of old parchment, which on a hasty inspection seemed to be a seventeenth century deed, containing the names of Christopher Pennock and George Collett, both of Cork. In 1680, George Collett, of Clonmell, had seized for tithes six "Pewter Dishes and a Pewter Candlestick," valued at #1. --Stockdale, 165. The following extract from a letter, dated 7 Feb. 1685, addressed to Christopher Pennock, doubtless refers to George Collett: "Dear Brother Pennock, Myne and my wife's affectionate love is to thee, and we are heartily glad it is in thy wife's hart to be with thee, and that the way is made for her father's condescension and willingness theretoo."(Pennock Papers, belonging to Mrs.William H.
