Transcribed Somerset England Birth and Marriage Records (C-1519c); Bristol & Somerset Quarterly Meeting, Digest Register of Births, 1644-1833][ Hannah was only 12 when she witnessed the marriage of Jacob Garwood and Elloner Olston/Oussor in Burlington MM, New Jersery in 1720 and signed her name is the closest relatives column.] Marmaduke first proposed his intention to marry Anne Pole in his MM in Somerset Co., Eng on the 28th day 11 month of 1697/8. His 2nd proposal as Quaker custom dictated was announced at his monthly meeting on the 24th day, 12th month 1697/8. He was listed as Marmaduke Coate of Hambridge, Parish of Curry Rivel at the time. The meeting cleared his way to proceed with the marriage in Ann Pole's monthly meeting at that time. Note that he married Anne in his 40's much like his uncle John did. (Park) Marmaduke Coate came to America in the spring of 1713 with his wife, Ann, and children: Mary, William, Edith, and possibly Marmaduke, ranging in age from 6 to 12 years. In made inquiries of the Kingsbury Episcopi Monthly Meeting in England concerning this move starting on the 30th day 2 mo 1713. On July 27, 1714, he purchased land from John Garwood in Springfield Twp., Burlington Co., New Jersey. In 1723 this land became part of the newly formed New Hanover Township. He also came to own 500 acres near Philadelphia called "White Marsh". He purchased 300 more acres of land in Springfield Twp. which remained in that township after border changes. It was bequeathed to daughter Edith Newbold in his will and in reality turned out to be 400 acres of land. Marmaduke and his wife apparently traveled to England multiple times. They were received on certificates from South Sutton MM, Somerset Co., England on 3/25/1715 and on 4/2/1718. He again traveled to England on certificate dated 8/7/1723 and returned to New Jersey on certificate dated Nov. 3, 1725. He likely died in Burlington Co., NJ and was buried there on Dec. 15, 1729. Quaker records show him to be a well respected, rather wealthy member of the community. One Boston Transcript record dated May 28, 1923 states that he was the secretary to William Penn. It's validity is not certain, but a Coate, brother to a Hall in Hilliard, Oh supposedly has one of Marmaduke's book of notes from when he was a secretary to Penn. (C-351, 536) Note that son, Marmaduke, was not mentioned in his father or mother's will. No record of him occurs in any quaker records except for his birth in the Bristol and Somerset quarterly meeting. Because his parents, Marmaduke and Ann Pole Coate, had four more children who died in infancy whose deaths were recorded in the Bristol and Somerset records, it is likely that son Marmaduke did take the trip to America with his parents, but died enroute or shortly after their arrival in the colonies. A lengthy account of this Marmaduke is in Quaker records and was published in 1972 by Heiss. It is copied verbatum from Charlotte Coats Siercks site from http://www.rootsquest.com/~coatsfar/articles.html. Quaker Biographical Sketches of Ministers & Elders and other Concerned members of the Yearly Meeting of Philadelphia 1682-1800 by Willard Heiss, 1972 page 111: Marmaduke Coate Marmaduke Coate, the son of Marmaduke and Edith Coate, of Hambridge, in the county of Somerset, England, was born in the year 1652. Whilst yet young, his parents were convinced of the Truth as held by the people called Quakers, and he was evidently brought up “in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” His parents suffered much in support of the doctrines of the Lord Jesus Christ, being fined and imprisoned. The suffering of his father, at least as respects bodily confinement, was unusual, even in that day. For tithes his imprisonments were long, and the spoiling of his goods not small, but through all he continued faithful, bearing an honest testimony by his walking in truth, and cheerfully suffering for it, and leaving a seed behind him, to bear similar sufferings in the same blessed cause. In the Fourth month, 1670, Thomas Whitehead and Jane his wife, being at Yeovil, held a meeting at the house of Henry Lavor, in that place. A magistrate named Helliar, with his officers and some soldiers, came where Friends were assembled, and although it appears that nothing had been said, yet he turned the Friends out of the house, and conducted them prisoners to a neighbouring inn. As they passed along the street, Thomas Whitehead exhorted those about them “to repent and fear God.” His wife also made some similar remarks. For this they were each fined L20, and the money was collected off the Friends, who had assembled at the meeting. Marmaduke Coate, the elder, was there, and being a man of substance, his portion of the fine was L20. In the Eighth month, the same year, Marmaduke was sued for tithes, for which, as he could not conscientiously pay the demand, he was cast into prison at Ilchester, where he was found, in the Fourth month, 1678, by John Whiting, who was committed to that place. Henry Walrond, whom John Whiting “characterises” as the greatest persecutor in the county of Somerset, was particularly severe on Marmaduke Coate, because being a man of property, he could the more easily make unrighteous gain off of him than his poorer neighbours. During Marmaduke’s long imprisonment for tithes, on one occasion having a little temporary liberty allowed him, perhaps by the jailer, to go and look after his affairs at home, Walrond committed him again, although already a prisoner in the eye of the law. Many were the distraints he made on the goods of this innocent prisoner, until on one occasion meeting with a check, he confessed to Marmaduke that nothing prospered with him, and promised that he would persecute no more. This fit of repentance was soon over, and afterwards he was even more bitter than before, particularly towards Marmaduke. He had been a man of property, with a fair estate, and a fine noble personal But when he put his hands to the work of enriching himself, by spoiling his honest neighbours, everything went against him, He became so poor at last, that no one would trust him for a sixpenny loaf, and he had to spin to make a pitiful subsistence before he died. Whiting quotes concerning him, an old saying, “Such a thrifty trade is persecution, that it leaves men never a friend in heaven or on earth”. After stating that Walrond “died miserably poor, as well as miserable otherwise,” he gives a saying of Walter Raleigh, - “These are the men that sought the misery of others, and misery found them out. In the year 1682, being still in prison, Marmaduke Coate, John Coate, probably an elder brother, and a number of others prepared the following address: - “To the Judges of Assize, in the County of Somerset. “The representation of the people of God, called Quakers, in humility, “Sheweth, “That we profess faith in one only God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, whom we worship in his Spirit, according to the Holy Scriptures, and in the leadings of the same, are taught to love God above all, and our neighbours as ourselves, and to lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty; and do own Charles the Second to be chief magistrate of this kingdom, and other his dominions, as being eminently preserved and brought into the government thereof, by the immediate hand of God; and do still resolve to be subject to him, and those in authority under him for conscience’ sake, as good Protestant subjects, truly desiring to answer the just end of government, which is for the subduing of sin and vice, and encouragement of righteousness and virtue. “Yet notwithstanding we have been, and many of us are still exposed to such perils and sufferings as must inevitably bring many peaceable and industrious families, who desire the good of the king and kingdom, to utter ruin and destruction, and that only for their pure conscience toward God, (before whom we must all appear, and give an account, and receive a reward according to the deeds done in the body,) and that by laws made against papists, or meetings to plot and contrive insurrections, under pretense of religious worship, and seditious conventicles, which principles and practices we utterly deny and detest, as our peaceable deportment under many great sufferings, by those formerly in power, and since also, may sufficiently manifest. Some few particulars of our late sufferings annexed, are presented to your consideration, for this end, that as Providence orders your coming this circuit to do justice, you may not be altogether unacquainted with our sufferings, but may use your authority to relieve the oppressed, and put a stop to the cruel proceedings of our oppressors; at least discountenance such unmerciful practices. That so ye may appear to be such as are a terror to evil-doers, and a praise to them that do well, which is truly acceptable to the Lord. Therein his peace and blessing will be with you, which is the earnest desire and prayer of the innocent suffering people aforesaid. John Coate, Joseph Lye, Marmaduke Coate, &c.” Marmaduke Coate, the younger, the subject of this memoir, on the 11th of the Ninth month, 1684, was taken at a meeting at Gregory Stoke, by Walrond, and sent to Ilchester prison, where his father still was. On the twenty-sixth of the same month, Edith Coate, a daughter of Marmaduke, the elder, being with others at a meeting in Ilminster, to worship God in spirit and in truth, as they had for many years regularly done, Henry Walrond came with his troop, arrested a number of whom Edith was one, and the next day committed them to prison. At the Sessions, in the Eleventh month, eighty-three of the Friends, in the Somerset prison, were liberated by court, and in the following month, thirty-two more were released by the jailer. Among these last appears to have been Marmaduke Coate, the elder. He was, however, through the instrumentality of his persecutors, in again for tithes before the month had expired. Whilst a prisoner for tithes, he was indicted for absence from the parish place of worship, and fined for a breach of law, which he could not have prevented. In the Sessions held in the Fifth month, 1684, at Bridgewater, in Somerset, the prisoners again addressed the justices, who discharged several of those then recently committed. Again, in the Sixty month, they addressed the justices appointed to hold the assizes at Wells. Still Marmaduke was kept a prisoner. In this summer his beloved daughter Edith was taken sick and deceased. We know not whether the privilege was granted him to take a last farewell of her or not, but we know that he who pitieth those that fear him, is a God of comfort, and able to consider his faithful children under every trial that can come upon them. Walrond fined many of the neighbours, who attended her burial. King Charles the Second dying, his brother James came to the throne, and being inclined to favour the Catholics, he was willing to favour all who, for dissent from the Church of England, were in prison. He put forth a proclamation for a general pardon on the 10th of the First month, 1686, and as the executive part thereof was committed to the justices, Friends in the Somerset prisons prepared a statement and address to be laid before the Quarter Sessions held at Wells, on the 30th of the same month. Their address ran thus: “To Chief Justice Herbert and Judge Wright, assigned to hold assized and gaol delivery, for the Western Circuit at Wells, for the county of Somerset, the thirtieth of the month called March, 1686. “Several of the people called Quakers, now prisoners in the gaol at Ivelchester, in the county of Somerset, on behalf of themselves and many others of the same people, in humility, show, “That since the Wise Disposer of all things, hath ordered your employment in this honourable service, to relieve the oppressed, and deliver the captives; and since king James II, that now is, hath committed part of his clemency to your custody, to distribute the same, according as the Lord hath inclined his heart; and having taken particular notice of our sufferings, and signified his will and pleasure, that we, the people commonly called Quakers, should receive the full benefit of his general pardon, with all possible ease; which grace and favour we, with all thankfulness, acknowledge to God as the Chief Author, who hath the hearts of king’s at his disposal; and to the king, as being ready herein to mind that which the Lord inclined his heart unto, and not without hope, to find the like opportunity to render to you our hearty thanks, for the full accomplishment of that which our God allows, and the king so readily grants us; and also hearing the report of your nobility and moderation, in managing this weighty trust committed to you, we are emboldened thus to address ourselves, though in plainness of speech, yet in sincerity of heart, to lay before you, that we have for several years been prisoners in the goal aforesaid, not for any plotting against the king or government, or harm done to his subjects. Our peaceable lives have manifested our fidelity to the kings, and love to our neighbors; it being contrary to our principles to do otherwise, but only for conscience’ sake, because in obedience to Christ Jesus, we dare not swear at all, or forbear to worship ‘God, as he hath ordained, nor conform to those worships which we have no faith in; which, to omit the one, or practice the other, we should thereby sin, and so would our consciences, and break our peace with God; and what good then should our lives do us, if we might enjoy never so much of the world’s favour and friendship. “Our humble request, therefore, to you is to consider and compassionate our suffering condition, and improve the power and authority that God and the king hath entrusted you withal, for our relief and liberty; we still resolving and hoping, through God’s assistance for the future, to manifest our fear to God, honour to the king, and honesty to all his subjects, by our godly, humble and peaceable conversation. The particular causes of our imprisonments are herewith attested, under our keeper’s hand. And we further pray, that mercenary informers and envious prosecutors against us only for conscience’ sake, may, according to your wisdom and prudence, be discouraged from prosecuting such actions, by which many industrious and conscientious families and persons are in danger of being ruined; and we encouraged in our diligence, in our respective callings, and may enjoy the benefit of our industry; and so shall we be the better enabled to perform with cheerfulness the duties we owe to God, the king, and all men. The Lord guide you in judgment, and more and more incline your hearts to love mercy, and do justice, and grant you the reward thereof; which is truly our desire and prayer.” The names of the prisoners, the cause, with the period of their confinement, are then given. Marmaduke Coate’s imprisonment for tithes is notices as fifteen years and five months. The prisoners were released, but Marmaduke Coate did not long survive his liberation. In the year 1689, when the demand for tithes against his estate was made, his widow, Edith Coate, and his son Marmaduke were prosecuted, and committed to prison. The period of their confinement, we know not. About the beginning of 1700, Marmaduke Coate was married to Ann Pole, a daughter of Edward and Mary Pole, of Bustlehay, in Somersetshire. At what period they removed to America, I have not been able to discover, but they settled in Burlington county, New Jersey. They both became useful members of that meeting, and were both members of the meeting of ministers and elders. He was an elder, and she either stood in that capacity, or in that of a minister. Of their son, William, we shall have further to note. Marmaduke Coate, having lived honoured and respected, deceased the 15th day of the Twelfth month, 1729. (Pages 111-113) An "Apostle Spoon" given to Marmaduke Coate by his godfather when he was baptised with his initials on it was still in existence in 1894 according to a letter by Mrs. W. R. Newbold to a Miss Mortoin. (C-536) 8 9 • Source Note. [1] Coats, Gary W., "Descendants of Marmaduke Coate Database" ID#: C-419c, 2383. [2] New Jersey Archives Series I, Vol. 23 ID#: C-45, 142.

A biosketch of Marmaduke Coate starts with an account of the imprisonment of his father [31][32][33]: Marmaduke Coate, the son of Marmaduke and Edith Coate, of Hambridge, in the county of Somerset, England, was born in the year 1652. Whilst yet young, his parents were convinced of the Truth as held by the people called Quakers, and he was evidently brought up "in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." His parents suffered much in support of the doctrines of the Lord Jesus Christ, being fined and imprisoned. The suffering of his father, at least as respects bodily confinement, was unusual, even in that day. For tithes his imprisonments were long, and the spoiling of his goods not small, but through all he continued faithful, bearing an honest testimony by his waiting in truth, and cheerfully suffering for it, and leaving a seed behind him, to bear similar sufferings in the same blessed cause. In the Fourth month, 1670, Thomas Whitehead and Jane his wife, being at Yeovil, held a meeting at the house of Henry Lavor, in that place. A magistrate named Helliar, with his officers and some soldiers, came where Friends were assembled, and although it appears that nothing had been said, yet he turned the Friends out of the house, and conducted them prisoners to a neighbouring inn. As they passed along the street, Thomas Whitehead exhorted those about them " to repent and fear God." His wife also made some similar remarks. For this they were each fined £20, and the money was collected off the Friends, who had assembled at the meetiug. Marmaduke Coate, the elder, was there, and being a man of substance, his portion of the fine was £20. In the Eighth month, the same year, Marmaduke was sued for tithes, for which, as he could not conscientiously pay the demand, he was cast into prison at Ilchester, where he was found, in the Fourth month, 1678, by John Whiting, who was committed to that place. Henry Walrond, whom John Whiting characterises as the greatest persecutor in the county of Somerset, was particularly severe on Marmaduke Coate, because being a man of property, he could the more easily make unrighteous gain off of him than his poorer neighbours. During Marmaduke's long imprisonment for tithes, on one occasion having a little temporary liberty allowed him, perhaps by the jailer, to go and look after his affairs at home, Walrond committed him again, although already a prisoner in the eye of the law. Many were the distraints he made on the goods of this innocent prisoner, until on one occasion meeting with a check, he confessed to Marmaduke that nothing prospered with him, and promised that he would persecute no more. This fit of repentance was soon over, and afterwards he was even more bitter than before, particularly towards Marmaduke. He had been a man of property, with a fair estate, and a fine noble person. But when he put his hands to the work of enriching himself, by spoiling his honest neighbours, everything went against, him. He became so poor at last, that no one would trust him for a sixpenny loaf, and he had to spin to make a pitiful subsistence before he died. Whiting quotes concerning him, an old saying, "Such a thrifty trade is persecution, that it leaves men never a friend in heaven or on earth." After stating that Walrond "died miserably poor, as well as miserable otherwise," he gives a saying of Walter Raleigh,—" These are the men that sought the misery of others, and misery found them out." In the year 1082, being still in prison, Marmaduke Coate, John Coate, probably an elder brother, and a number of others prepared the following address: To the Judges of Assize, in the County of Somerset. The representation of the people of God, called Quakers, in humility, Sheweth, That we profess faith in one only God, through our Lord Jesus Christ, whom we worship in his Spirit, according to the Holy Scriptures, and in the leadings of the same, are taught to love God above all, and our neighbours as ourselves, and to lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty; and do own Charles the Second to be chief magistrate of this kingdom, and other his dominions, as being eminently preserved and brought into the government thereof, by the immediate hand of God : and do still resolve to be subject to him, and those in authority under him for conscience' sake, as good Protestant subjects, truly desiring to answer the just end of government, which is for the subduing of sin and vice, and encouragement of righteousness and virtue. Yet notwithstanding we have been, and many us are still exposed to such perils and sufferings as must inevitably bring many peaceable and industrious families, who desire the good of the king and kingdom, to utter ruin and destruction, and that only for their pure conscience toward God, (before whom we must all appear, and give an account, and receive a reward according to the deeds done in the body,) and that by laws made against papists, or meetings to plot and contrive insurrections, under pretence of religious worship, and seditious conventicles, which principles and practices we utterly deny and detest, as our peaceable deportment under many great sufferings, by those formerly in power, and since also, may sufficiently manifest. Some few particulars of our late sufferings annexed, are presented to your consideration, for this end, that as Providence orders your coming this circuit to do justice, you may not be altogether unacquainted with our sufferings, but may use your authority to relieve the oppressed, and put a stop to the cruel proceedings of our oppressors; at least discountenance such unmerciful practices. That so ye may appear to be such as are a terror to evil-doers, and a praise to them that do well, which is truly acceptable to the Lord. Therein his peace and blessing will be with you, which is the earnest desire and prayer of the innocent suffering people aforesaid. John Coate, Joseph Lye, Marmaduke Coate Marmaduke Coate, the younger, the subject of this memoir, on the 11th of the Ninth month, 1684, was taken at a meeting at Gregory Stoke, by Walrond, and sent to llchester prison, where his father still was. On the twenty-sixth of the same month, Edith Coate, a daughter of Marmaduke, the elder, being with others at a meeting in Ilminster, to worship God in spirit and in truth, as they had for many years regularly done, Henry Walrond came with his troop, arrested a number of whom Edith was one, and the next day committed them to prison. At the Sessions, in the Eleventh month, eighty-three of the Friends, in the Somerset prison, were liberated by court, and in the following month, thirty-two more were released by the jailer. Among these last appears to have been Marmaduke Coate, the elder. He was, however, through the instrumcutality of his persecutors, in again for tithes before the month had expired. Whilst a prisoner for tithes, he was indicted for absence from the parish place of worship, and fined for a breach of law, which he could not have prevented. In the Sessions held in the Fifth month, 1084, at Bridgewater, in Somerset, tho prisoners again addressed the justices, who discharged several of those then recently committed. Again, in the Sixth month, they addressed the justices appointed to hold the assizes at Wells. Still Marmaduke was kept a prisoner. In this summer his beloved daughter Edith was taken sick and deceased. We know not whether the privilege was granted him to take a last farewell of her or not, but we know that he who pitieth those that fear him, is a God of comfort, and able to cousider his faithful children under every trial that can come upon them. Walrond fined many of the neighbours, who attended her burial. King Charles the Second dying, his brother James came to the throne, and being inclined to favour the Catholics, he was willing to favour all who, for dissent from the Church of England, were in prison. He put forth a proclamation for a general pardon on the 10th of the First month, 1686, and as the executive part thereof was committed to the justices, Friends in the Somerset prisons prepared a statement and address to be laid before the the Quarter Sessions held at Wells, on the 30th of the same month. Their address ran thus : To Chief Justice Herbert and Judge Wright, assigned to hold assizes and gaol delivery, for the Western Circuit at Wells, for the county of Somerset, the thirtieth of the month called March, 1686. Several of the people called Quakers, now prisoners in the gaol at Ivelchester, in the county of Somerset, on behalf of themselves and many others of the same people, in humility, show, That since tho Wise Disposer of all things, hath ordered your employment in this honourable service, to relieve the oppressed, and deliver the captives ; and since king James II., that now is, hath committed part of his clemency to your custody, to distribute the same, according as tho Lord hath inclined his heart; and having taken particular notice of our sufferings, and signified his will and pleasure, that we, the people commonly called Quakers, should receive the full benefit of his general pardon, with all possible ease; which grace and favour we, with all thankfulness, acknowledge to God as the Chief Author, who hath the hearts of king's at his disposal ; and to tho king, as being ready herein to mind that which the Lord inclined his heart unto, and not without hope, to find the like opportunity to render to you our hearty thanks, for the full accomplishment of that which our God allows, and the king so readily grants us : and also hearing the report of your nobility and moderation, in managing this weighty trust committed to you, we are emboldened thus to address ourselves, though in plainness of speech, yet in sincerity of heart, to lay before you, that we have for several years been prisoners in the gaol aforesaid, not for any plotting against the king or government, or harm done to his subjects. Our peaceable lives have manifested our fidelity to tho king, and love to our neighbours ; it being contrary to our principles to do otherwise, but only for conscience' sake, because in obedience to Christ Jesus, we dare not swear at all, or forbear to worship God, as he hath ordained, nor conform to those worships which wo have no faith in ; which, to omit the one, or practise the other, we should thereby sin, and so wound our consciences, and break our peace with God ; and what good then should our lives do us, if we might enjoy never so much of the world's favour and friendship. Our humble request, therefore, to you is to consider and compassionate our suffering condition, and improve the power and authority that God and the king hath entrusted yoü withal, for our relief and liberty ; we still resolving and hoping, through God's assistance for the future, to manifest our fear to God, honour to the king, and honesty to all his subjects, by our godly, humble and peaceable conversation. The particular causes of our imprisonments are herewith attested, under our keeper's hand. And we further pray, that mercenary informers and envious prosecutors against us only for conscience' sake, may, according to your wisdom and prudence, be discouraged from prosecuting such actions, by which many industrious and conscientious families and persons are in danger of being ruined ; and we encouraged in our diligence, in our respective callings, and may enjoy the "benefit of our industry; and so shall we be the better enabled to perform with cheerfulness the duties we owe to God, the king, and all men. The Lord guide you in judgment, and more and more incline your hearts to love mercy, and do justice, and grant you the reward thereof; which is truly our desire and prayer." The names of the prisoners, the cause, with the period of their confinement, are then given. Marmaduke Coates imprisonment for tithes is noticed as fifteen years and five months. The prisoners were released, but Marmaduke Coate did not long survive his liberation. In the year 1689, when the demand for tithes against his estate was made, his widow, Edith Coate, and his son Marmaduke were prosecuted, and committed to prison. The period of their confinement, we know not. About the beginning of 1700, Marmaduke Coate was married to Ann Pole, a daughter of Edward and Mary Pole, of Bustlehay, in Somersetshire. At what period they removed to America, I have not been able to discover, but they settled in Burlington county, New Jersey. They both became useful members of that meeting, and were both members of the meeting of ministers and elders. He was an elder, and she either stood in that capacity, or in that of a minister. Of their son, William, we shall have further to note. Marmaduke Coate, having lived honoured and respected, deceased the 15th day of the Twelfth month, 1729. Marmaduke Coate was from Wivelscomb, Somersetshire, and was in Wadham College with William Penn, and was, later, his secretary in Pennsylvania.
