    Biography


    • BIOGRAPHY by Albert Cadwallader Worrell: He came to America on the Bristol Comfort, which arrived at Upland, Delaware Co., PA on October 1, 1683. Sheppard in Passengers and Ships prior to 1684 says Francis was granted a warrant for 100 acres in Springfield township on October 17, 1683. He settled on land close to that acquired by George Maris, who had been a fellow passenger on The Bristol Comfort. Smith in History of Delaware County says Francis settled on rented land. But Sheppard says that Francis sold 50 acres of this land to George Maris, Jr. on January 1, 1685.

      In 1686, Francis Yarnall acquired 510 acres of land in Willistown Twp., Chester Co., PA adjoining the Edgmont Township line. He lived there the rest of his life. Francis was a substantial and successful citizen. In 1703 he acquired a patent for 400 acres next to the land reserved for the Indians. In his will he made specific bequests of almost 500 acres in addition to the bequest to his wife of the remainder of his land and the place he then dwelt on. In 1711, Francis was a member of the Pennsylvania General Assembly.
