John arrived in Philadelphia on October 22, 1682 on the ship "Lamb" as part of William Penn's Fleet with his mother, the widow, Ellen Stackhouse Cowgill and his siblings, Ralph, Edmund, Jane and Jennet.The Lamb departed from Liverpool, England on June 26, 1682.

His first wife was Bridget Croasdale (1671-1701), daughter of Thomas & Agnes (Hawthornthwaite) Croasdale. The Croasdales also came on the ship the Lamb with the Cowgill family and many others under the same Certificate of Removal from Settle Monthly Meeting in England dated 4mo (June) 7, 1682. John & Bridget married 8mo (Oct) 19, 1693 at Middletown MM and had at least 4 children before her death, just 4 months after their daughter Ellin was born. I will be happy to send you a copy of their marriage certificate and Certificate of Removal from England if you are interested. On 20 Feb 1699 he purchased of his brothers-in-law (Wm & John Croasdale) 197 acres, part of a larger tract laid out to their father Thomas Croasdale, and after his decease, patented by the Commissioners of Property, June 28, 1692, to his heirs. This tract was located in Middletown township, Bucks county, fronting on Neshaminy creek, and appears on Holme's map in the name of "Widow Croasdal."
