  • Notes 
    • Historic Genealogy of the Kirk Family
      Little is know of Roger save what can be learned in teh different provisions of his "last will and testament". It appears he was among the oponeers of Nottingham and, reasoning 'a priori' are let to infer that he migrated from teh north of Ireland.

      He located in East Nottingham, Chester Co., Province of Pennsylvania at least as early as 1712, where at different times, he purchased large tracts of land, situated on both sides , and extending for a great distance along North-East Creek. By occupation, he was a weaver and it would seem that he carried on this business together with farming.
