Overview and metadata sections

William Satterthwaite (1709-?), son of Esther and Michael Satterthwaite, married Pleasant Mead in 1736. He migrated from England to Pennsylvania, leaving behind a considerable number of relatives.

Satterthwaite family materials are primarily letters of family members in the 18th century to William Satterthwaite, as well as genealogical information (deaths, marriages, children, mostly 19th century) on the Satterthwaite, Mitchell, Stackhouse, Palmer, Simpson, Tomlinson, Wood, Croasdale, and other families. Included in the collection are a 19th century commonplace book, correspondence, and other manuscript materials, including a fragment of a document signed by Phineas Pemberton in 1696, copied materials, and a few photographs, including a group photograph with Francis and (Elizabeth?) Tomlinson, 1910.
