Alderman Isaac Penington1

d. December 1661
Occupation*Isaac was a sometime lieutenant of the Tower, Lord Mayor of London, and one of the judges who condemned King Charles I to death in 1649.1
Residence*He lived in London, England.1
Court Action*1660Isaac, who had not actually signed the king's death warrant, was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1660 for his role as a commissioner in the trial and execution of King Charles I in 1649.

Following the execution of King Charles I on 30 January 1649, the English monarchy was abolished. Instead of the monarchy, what became known as a Council of State was set-up with Oliver Cromwell as its first chairman. When Charles II returned to become King of England in 1660, those men who had participated in his father’s death warrant, and were still alive and had not already fled the country, whether they had actually signed the king's death warrant or not, were tried as regicides, or as murderers of a king. At the English Restoration in 1660, six Commissioners and four others were found guilty of regicide and executed; one was hanged and nine were hanged, drawn and quartered. In 1662 three more regicides were hanged, drawn and quartered, and some others were pardoned, while a further nineteen served life imprisonment. The three already dead at the time of the Restoration had their bodies desecrated.2,3,4
Death*December 1661He remained a prisoner in the Tower of London from his commitment in 1660 until he died there in December 1661.2,4

Birth*14 October 1644William Penn was born on 14 October 1644 in London, England,3
Baptism23 October 1644 and was baptized on 23 October 1644 at the Church of All Hollows, London, Barking, England.4
Education*26 October 1660William's early education had been received at the Chigwell School in Essex and by private tutors. As a young man of 16 years of age, he went to Oxford where on 26 October 1660 he was admitted as a "gentleman commoner" at Christ Church College, Oxford, Oxfordshire. He was extremely unhappy there, feeling persecuted for his evolving religious views, and returned home to his father in 1662.5
Religion*After his departure from Oxford, William began to actively attend Meetings of the Friends and, within a short time, had identified himself as a Quaker.1
(Future Husband) Residence1668William first met his future wife, Gulielma Maria Springett, early in 1668 while she was living at Bury House, Amersham, Buckinghamshire, in the family of her stepfather, Isaac Penington, with her mother, Mary (Proud) Springett Penington.6
Marriage*4 April 1672He married first Gulielma Maria Springett, daughter of Sir William Springett Knight and Lady Mary Proud, on 4 April 1672 at King's Farm, Chorley Wood, Hertfordshire, England.7
Residence*Following their marriage, William and Gulielma went to live at Basing House, Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire, a house William had probably rented.8
Relocation*1677William and Guli Penn moved early in 1677 to Worminghurst, Sussex County, a property Guli had received as a part of her inheritance from her father.9
Land Transfer*4 March 1681William received a royal charter from King Charles II of England on 4 March 1681 dictating the founding of the Colony of Pennsylvania. Penn Biographer's believe the king's reason for handing over this large piece of his American land holdings to William Penn was to satisfy a debt the king owed to Penn's father. The land included present-day Pennsylvania and Delaware. The name Pennsylvania, which translates roughly as "Penn's Woods", was created by combining the Penn surname in honor of William's father, with the Latin word sylvania, meaning "forest land." The king's charter declared William absolute owner of the land and, as such, he had the authority to dispose of the land with little restriction. He recognized the claims to the land held by the Native Americans and maintained a policy of purchasing land from them before selling land for settlement. This same policy was mostly adhered to by his heirs.10,11,12,13
Land Grant*5 April 1682 On 5 April 1682,William Penn of Worminghurst, in the County of Sussex, Esq. sold to John Sharples of Hatherton, Cheshire , for £20, a land grant for 1000 acres within the newly created province of Pennsylvania.14,15
(Husband) Death23 February 1693/94William became a widower when Gulielma (Springett) Penn died on 23 February 1693/94.16
Marriage*5 March 1695/96He married Hannah Callowhill of the city of Bristol, daughter of Thomas Callowhill and Hannah Hollister, on 5 March 1695/96 at Bristol, England.17
Illness*4 October 1712William Penn suffered his first apoplectic stroke in the Spring of 1712 in London, and was seized by a second one on 4 October 1712 at Bristol. He and Hannah returned to Ruscombe, Berkshire, where the family's home had been established since 1710 and, shortly after his arrival there, he sustained a third stroke of apoplexy. These three strokes permanently disabled Penn's mental powers and left his physical strength so shattered that he gradually declined until his death.18
Death*30 July 1718He died between two and three o'clock in the morning of 30 July 1718 at Ruscombe at age 73.19
Burial*He was buried in the Friends Burial Ground, Jordans, Buckinghamshire, in the presence of twenty to thirty Quaker ministers and a large number of Friends and others.20

(Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: published by the author, 1816), pages 7-12, with a transcription of the indenture between John Sharples and William Penn noting Sharples was "of Ratherton, in the County Pallatine of Chester". Whether Hatherton was transcribed in error as "Ratherton", or Ratherton later became Hatherton, has not been learned by this researcher. A county palatine or palatinate was an area ruled by a hereditary nobleman possessing special authority and autonomy from the rest of a kingdom or empire. William the Conqueror founded the County Palatine of Chester, ruled by the Earls of Chester. Chester had its own parliament, consisting of barons of the county, and was not represented in the parliament of England until 1543, while it retained some of its special privileges until 1830.
