Hi, I live near Luke's origins and have come across potential info' while collecting wider sets of information. On arrival in Bucks County in 1682 he is listed as a mason from Leek town, Staffordshire; and others believe he had previously visited the growing Quaker community in Pennsylvania and New Jersey. I find that on 27th December 1704 a Luke Brindley of Spout street, Leek is buried at St. Edwards. This is a possible end to the quaker if he had returned home, unless there is burial detail in Bucks County. Also, Luke is a rare name locally and would normally run in related families. Thus we have several baptisms in Leek at the time.
Luke Brindley of Thomas/Mary on 26 May A.D.1678. Another to Elias/Jane on 7 MAY 1709. Again to Thomas/Sarah on 21 Dec. 1711 at nearby Ipstones.
Baptism/birth record problems on early Moorland Quakers arises from many converting from a local AnaBaptist group, who also disallowed child baptism. bye pete
