A HISTORY OF 5030 HORSESHOE PIKE

BY EDWARD G. LEN DRAT


S030 HORSESHOE PIKE

HISTORIC NARRATIVE

At various times during the year 1681 William Penn Esq. did" Bargain, Sell and Convey unto" William
Isaac, Thomas Sager and Susannah Bailey, Henry Barnard and Thomas-? SOO acres each of unlaid out
land in the Province of Pennsylvania.

In the years of 168S and 1686 the aforementioned recipients of the land sold their SOO acres to a
Dariiel Smith. Daniel Smith sold the now 1900 acres of land to a Barbara Blagden in September of 1687.
Barbara resold to Daniel Smith the 1900 acres in February of 1687.

In December of 1702, 1000 acres of the 1900 was surveyed and divided into two separate SOO acre
portions in Cain Township of Chester County.

After the death of Daniel Smith his eldest son John inherited the two SOO acre plots of land.

In September of 1723 John Smith who resided in London sold through Thomas Chalkley, his attorney in
Philadelphia, one of the sao acre plots to Thomas Lindley a blacksmith also of Philadelphia.

In December of 172S Lindley and his wife Hannah passed the property on to Thomas Parke a yeoman
(farmer) who resided in ChesterTownship in the County of Chester.

Thomas was born in Ireland in 166S. He and his wife Rebecca Ward were the parents of 9 children.

Thomas and his wife Rebecca In May of 1723, after selling their personal belongings at their home in
County Carlow, Ireland, embarked with other members of their family on the ship Sizarghs to voyage
from Dublin to Philadelphia. Those in their family who accompanied Thomas and Rebecca were Robert
aged 29; their fourth child Rebecca Parke Stalker, aged 26 and her husband Hugh; their fifth child,
Rachael, aged 24, Thomas, aged 19; Abel aged 17; Jonathan, aged 14; and Elizabeth, aged 13. Robert
kept a daily journal of the voyage and from this journal we can determine that the journey was a rough
one.

In August of 1723 they arrived in the New World and traveled to Chester where they stayed three
months. It was after their sojourn in Chester that Thomas bought a SOO acre plot of land in the Great
Valley of Chester County, in other words, in Cain Township. In a letter to his sister Mary, Robert Parke
described the land that they had acquired as" beautifully situated, stretching from one hill to another,
here on the Great Road leading from Philadelphia to the West". Another of the sons of Thomas, Abel,
erected the first Inn in the township. The Inn was called "The Ship" and was located on the Great Road.

Thomas was a Quaker and on coming to Cain he carried with him a certificate from the Friends
Meeting in Ireland which indicated that Thomas was highly recommended. He was later appointed to be
Elder for Cain Meeting and he remained in that Station until his death on January 3151 1738.

Either through the will of Thomas or by purchase from 'him, three of the sons obtained ownership of
the sao acre holdings of Thomas. Thomas Jr. obtained 27S acres, Abel100 and Robert 124.S. Sources
differ on the method of transfer. However, a deed (Deed Book E, Page 318) records that Thomas and his
wife Rebecca sold a 124.S acre portion of the estate to Robert Parke in January of 173S/36 two to three
years before the death of Thomas Sr. This portion of the SOO acres is the one of interest.
Robert was born in March of 1695. He worked as a storekeeper in Dublin in the 1720-1721 time
period. On arrival in Pennsylvania he became a clerk and a conveyancer in Chester. Robert made a trip
to Bristol, England and Dublin in 1727 and on his return trip in 1728 he brought with him six indentured
servants. Robert never married. He died in about 1736. Included in this report is a letter that he wrote to
Mary and Thomas Valentine, sister and brother-in-law in Ireland in October of 1725.

Prior to his death Robert had sold his 124.5 acres to his brother Abel.

Abel was born in 1706 in Ballintrain, Cavan, Ireland . .He married a Deborah?. No children are
mentioned as resulting. Abel was noted as being very industrious. As already indicated he erected the
first Inn in the township, "The Ship". Prior to his death in 1757, Abel sold both his 100 acres and the
124.5 acres he had purchased from Robert to his brother Thomas Jr. in May of 1744.

Thomas Jr. Was born in Ireland in March of 1705. In April of 1739 he married Jane Edge. He and Jane
were the parents-of-seven children. After his purchase of the land of his brother Abel, Thomas was
proprietor of the Ship Inn. Thomas died in October of 1758.

The following is the obituary notice of Thomas Jr.

"On the death ofThomas Parke, in 1758, to the grief of his family and friends, and, although he kept a
pub1ic ·house, he was adorned with so much regularity, that·he gave contentto most civilized persons
that called at his house, indeed his whole economy was so full of decorum that at once the beholder
admired and loved him. He was a loving husband, a tender father. He endeavored to train up his
children in in the way they should walk; a kind master to his servants, a good neighbor, a friend to the
poor, ready to assist in ending disputes, just to all men. A man of bright genius, a ready scribe, making
him serviceable both to church and state, he passed through the vicissitudes oflife cheerfully; he was
not raised at silly weights. ( Not by silly folks.) Not subject to grief at trifles, and as Kind Providence
favored him with riches, he always inclined his heart to seek and serve after a better, and as he lived
beloved, so he died lamented. We rejoice we have so many proofs that he is now in the fruition of
happiness, feeding upon the increase of his labor, and drinking of the springs of Eternal Life, world
without end."

In a will which Thomas had written in November of 1758 he left to his son Robert "all that tract and
parcel of land--------- I now live on. At the time of the death of Thomas, Robert was about 18 years old.
Therefore until he reached majority his mother, Jane was listed on the tax rolls as the owner of the
property. It was in 1762 that Robert Parke first appeared on the tax rolls. The last available year on
which Robert appeared on the rolls was in 1771.

Robert was born in February of 1740. He married Ann Edge in October of 1770. Robert and Ann had
two children, Jane born in 1771 and Thomas R. born in 1773. Robert died in October of 1773.

For -a short while after the death-of-Robert, his-wife -Arm -appear-son the tax rolls for the property.
However from about 1778 until1794 no Parke appears on the rolls. In !795 a Thomas Parke is taxed on
250 acres of land, four horses and six cattle. It would appear that in the interval where no Parke appears
that the property was leased out. The Thomas who appears in 1795 would most likely be Thomas R. the
son of Robert and Ann who would be approximately 22 years of age in 1795. The tax record for Thomas
R. in 1796 lists 210 acres of valley property, four cattle and eight horses. On the land had been
constructed a stone house which was two stories high and a stone and log barn.
Thomas R. Parke as indicated was born in 1773. He married Elizabeth Bowen in December of 1798. He
Elizabeth and were the parents of nine children. Thomas R. appeared on the tax rolls until1814. It was in
March of 1814 that he died. Elizabeth his wife appears on the tax rolls from 1815 until about 1835.
Elizabeth died in 1839.

In April of 1841 Richard B. Parke, a son of Thomas R. Parke, and his wife Elousia, sold "all that certain
messuage and tract of land" with the area of 92 acres, 51 perches to J Dutton Steele. This tract was a
portion of the real estate of Robert Parke who died intestate in 1835.

I was unable to determine from genealogical information available where This Robert Parke fit into the
Parke family. However, other information does indicate that there was a Robert Parke who died in 1835.

Information on J. Dutton Steele is included in another section of this report.

Steele in March of 1854 sold the property to Jonathan H. Butler who in April of 1864 sold it to Elhanan
Zook, a farmer and a minister in the Society ofFriends.

Ruth Lloyd acquired the property in January of 1907 and subsequently her son William M. in October
of 1926. William M. was a stock broker and a senior partner in the firm of Lloyd and Palmer. William was
a graduate of the Germantown Academy and attended Harvard University. He died in February of
1970.Duril']g the time the Lloyds ownedproperty it was called Valley Brook Farm.

St. Joseph's Hospital acquired the property in July of 1977 from The First Pennsylvania Bank.

The hospital sold it to The Order of Felician Sisters of St. Francis.

The property was purchased from the Order in July of 1996 by the Archdiocease of Philadelphia.

l720s-l740s
In 1790 Irish colonists and their descendants
made up one fourth of the white settlers in
Pennsylvania, and substantial minorities in
other colonies. Among them were ROBERT
PARKE, a well-to-do Quaker from Dublin, and
FRANCIS CAMPLE, a Catholic from northern
Ireland. Both wrote accounts of their new lives
in America.

Parke emigrated 'With his parents and several siblings in 1724 and soon purchased land near Philadelphia . In a letter to
relatives back in Ireland, he dispels the rumor that they were not "Satisfyed in Coming here, which was utterly False" and
encourages them to come to America, "it being the best Country for working folk & tradesmen of any in the world."

Birth: Mar. 18, 1810


Death: Jun. 13, 1886

J. DUTION STEELE is the eldest son of John D. Steele, of Chester County, Pa., who migrated with
his family from England in 1795, and first settled in Whitemarsh township, Montgomery Co., where
he resided for seven years, after which he married Ann, daughter of Hugh Exton, of Hunterdon ,.
County, N.J., and purchased a tract of land in central Chester County, upon which he resided dudng
the remainder of his life.

There J. Dutton Steele was born in 1810, and at the age of eighteen, after being educated in the
mathematical schools of Chester Co., he joined a corps of engineers engaged in the surveys for the
internal improvements of Pennsylvania, and continued in the service of the State for two years.

In 1830 he entered the service of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad Company, the construction of
which work was at that time being commenced, and continl}ed in that service for ten years having
been connected chiefly with the construction department until their rails had reached Harper's
Ferry, and had been extended to Baltimore, Md., and during in interval in that service he located
the road between Troy and Ballston Spring in the State of New York. His last appointment with the
Baltimore and Ohio Company was in connection with the location and construction of the Western
Division of the road, extending, from Cumberland, Md ., to the Ohio River.

In 1837 he was married to Elizabeth, daughter of Judge Thomas Capner, of Hunterdon County,
N.J., and settled in Wheeling, Va., from which point he conducted all extensive system of surveys
necessary for the location of the work in charge. The great financial break-down of that period,
however, caused the railroad company to suspend the construction of their road west of
Cumberland, and consequently his engagements with them terminated in 1840. He then purchased
a farm near Downingtown, Pa., and followed the pursuits of agriculture for six years ....

In 1846 he made a survey of Pittsburgh and its environs for the purpose of indicating the
practicable routes for entering that city with railway improvements, and entered the service of the
Philadelphia and Reading Railroad Company on the 1st of January, 1847, in charge of the roadway
department of that road, and continued in the service of that company, in the several capacities of
chief assistant engineer, chief engineer and vice-president, until 1867, -- a period of nearly twenty
years ....

He introduced into railway practice the ribbed stone arches for skew bridges, and availing himself of
the experiments made by a commission appointed by the Queen of England in 1847 to investigate
the "'applicability of iron to railway structures," the report of which was published in 1849, he
introduced wrought-iron girders for bridges of short spans, and was the first to use electricity as in
auxiliary to rock-blasting to any considerable extent, with no light to guide him but some
experiments which had been made in English stone quarries, and without the aid of which the
tunnels on the Reading Railroad could not have been widened, in the brief space of four months
allotted for the completion of the work, with safety to the passing trains.

In 1868 he was elected president of the Sterling Iron and Railway Company, and removed to
Brooklyn, and assumed the duty of developing an extensive iron ore property in Orange County N.
Y., in which position he continued for three years. During this period he made explorations for
railroad extensions in the States of Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota; took all active part in
organizing the American Society of Civil Engineers and contributed to their journal, and was
appointed one of a commission of civil engineers to examine and approve the plans of John A.
Roebling for the East River [i.e./ Brooklyn] suspension bridge ... .

In 1870 he returned to his residence in Pottstown, Pa., and was in charge of the construction of the ·
Nesquehoning Valley Railroad and the Nesquehoning tunnel, in Carbon County, Pa., and in the
latter work, availing himself of the experiments then in progress at the Hoosac tunnel, made use of
compressed air as a motive-power for the rock-drills.

He was next appointed to select the location, amid several conflicting interests, for the extension of
the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad from Central Ohio to Chicago, and after the necessary surveys,
recommended the route upon which that road is now built, and was also engaged on the
Wilmington and Northern and Berks County Railroads and other works of lesser importance.

He afterwards organized and established the J. D. Steele & Sons' Manufacturing Company at
Pottstown, Pa., and thus ended an active but inconspicuous professional career. History of
