Table of contents
John M. George (1802-1887) was the son of Joseph and Alice Malin George. He was a birthright Quaker and member of Radnor Monthly Meeting. The George family came to Pennsylvania from Wales in 1708 and settled in Blockley Township, Pennsylvania. The George family papers include correspondence (1705-1864), other personal papers (1681-1887), business and financial accounts (1734-1887), and estate papers (1714-1883). Of particular note are the estate accounts of many family members and other individuals for whom John M. and Joseph W. George acted as conveyancers and administrators, including Joseph George (1773- 1846?), Jesse George (b. 1785), James Malin (d. ca 1859), John Malin Jr. (ca. 1778-1868?), and other members of the Malin family, Miller family, Price family and many others who lived in the Blockley area. The personal papers include journals and day books of Edward George and John M. George as well as marriage certificates, removals, and genealogical notes. Business and financial records include farm and dairy accounts, business accounts, property transactions, receipts, etc. of the George, Malin, and other related families. The collection also includes the plan of East Whiteland Friends Burial Ground, miscellaneous records of Radnor Monthly and Merion Preparative Meetings, and Blockley Township records. The family history is significant,because it traces the first two centuries of the history of Welsh Quakers that settled in the "Welsh Tract" of the Lower Merion area.
