  • Notes 

    • In 1705, Martin Jarvis purchased a house and lot on 2d Street, between
      Market and Chestnut Streets, Philadelphia and made his residence there the
      remainder of his life. His daughter, Sarah married William Sandwith, an
      Irish Friend, of Philadelphia, and became the mother of Elizabeth (Sandwith)
      Drinker (wife of Henry Drinker, of Philadelphia, one of the Quaker exiles to
      Virginia, in the War of the Revolution), whose diary, covering the period
      1759-1807, is a valuable record of the social life of the time.
