Squire Boone, Sr. was born in Bradnich, Exeter, Devonshire, England, on November 25, 1696. He was a son of George Boone III and Mary Milton Maugridge. He belonged to the Religious Society of Friends, also known as Quakers. They dissented from the Church of England and were persecuted for their beliefs. As a result, he and his brother, George, and sister, Sarah, went to America ahead of their parents in 1713, joining William Penn's colony. He was a weaver and a blacksmith. His parents arrived in Pennsylvania in 1717. Squire married Sarah Morgan on July 23, 1720 at the Gwynedd Meeting of Quakers, Berks County, Pennsylvania, which was part of Philadelphia County at the time and is now in Montgomery County. They lived in Exeter, Berks County, Pennsylvania.
Squire and Sarah had 12 or more children including my ancestor, Jonathan Boone, and the famous pioneer, Daniel Boone. See my video tour here and learn more about the Daniel Boone Homestead on Wikipedia.
