Pioneer. He was one of the original settlers of what is today Gwynedd Township in Montgomery County; he had purchased 700 acres to farm. In 1702, he wrote an account of his emigration from Wales and of his genealogy. He traced his ancestry to the twelfth century Welsh chieftain Rhirid Flaiid, of Penllyn. The account, written in Welsh, was later translated into English by a grandson. Many of modern Gwynedd Township's placenames are related to Foulke's roots. He was the husband of Eleanor Hugh Cadwalader.
