I hope Ida, our listmaster, can help us out here. Remember all those
discussions we had several years ago regarding the Burlington Co, NJ/Phila,
PA. BUDDs? Those on the list at that time quoted these sources. Here are a
few that I know of:

Somersetshire, England, who settled in New Jersey in the 17th Century. Chart

Pg 256-263

This Rev. Thomas Budd was a graduate of Merton College, University of
Word. He never came to America. He was an Episcopal clergyrnan; but
later he accepted the doctrines of George Fox, renounced his benefice,
and suffered bitter persecution for his faith. So far as known, no
kinship has been proved between Lieutenant John Budd and the Rev. Thomas
Budd. In 164 6 the Rev. Thomas Budd married Johnna. Knight. They had
five sons. We list four who settled at Burlington. " Four sons of the
Rev. Thomas and Johanna Knight Budd of England:
I. Thomas Budd, Jr., born 1645, married Susannah Robinson in England and
had children born there. He came to New Jersey alone in 1668, but went
back and came again ten years later in the ship Kent. With him came his
wife and children and his three brothers and their families, in all a
company of 25 souls.
II. William Budd, born 1649, or 1650, died March 20, 1721/2, married Ann
Claypoole. He joined the Episcopal Church and became a warden.
III. John Budd, died before 1738, He soon removed from Burlington to
Philadelphia and prospered there as a merchant. He married and had three
sons, Samuel, John, Jr., and George; these were the progenitors of the
Philadelphia Budds.
IV. James Budd, became a member of the Assembly. Stephen Wickes states
that James married and left at least one child, William. James was
drowned in the Delaware River at Burlington in 1692. These four brothers
were Jersey pioneers, but not one of them dwelt in Morris County at
least for any length of time, although they may have owned land there.
The Morris County pioneer was John Budd of Whippany, son of Thomas, Jr.,
named above.
Four children of Thomas and Susanna Robinson Budd, Jr.
i . John Budd, died 1749. He made his will when he was very old. It was
written, March 20, 1749, and was probated September 6th, the same year.
This is the John Budd who is designated in these articles as John of
ii. Thomas Budd, of whom nothing further.
iii. Mary Budd, of whom nothing further.
iv. Rose Budd, of whom nothing further.
John Budd of Whippany in his will mentions several tracts of land:
