3, 30, 1739. To the Monthly Meeting of Friends at Westbury:
DEAR FRIENDS -- These lines may acquaint you that I am under concern of mind for my misstep in ye way that I was married.
Which was on this wise. I having made my application to her that is now my wife, not doubting but that we might come before the meeting and be allowed to pass the same, and having gone so far that we could not reverse our desires and being discouraged from making application to the preparative Meeting by some of the members thereof, did unadvisedly and without ye counsel and advice of Friends procure a license from the Governor and was married by a Justice of the Peace.
Which hasty and unadvised marriage, contrary to the practice and good order used and established amongst Friends I do condemn, and do desire that for the future I may walk more circumspectly.
From your friend,
Richard Powell's acknowledgment was accepted by the Meeting, as satisfactory, and he remained a useful member of the Society the rest of his life.
EXTRACT FROM THE MINUTES OF WESTBURY MONTHLY MEETING OF FRIENDS HELD IN 1762-3
"In the matter of Henry Powell marrying out of the unity of his Friends, to his first cousin, which was again resumed and considered of, it appears to be the sense and judgment of the meeting that inasmuch as he was sufficiently treated with, in a dissuasive manner to desist from proceeding in marriage with his near kinswoman before marriage, and he hath not received the counsel and advice of Friends, but gone contrary to the rules of our Discipline, and left Friends. Therefore, he is disowned as a member in unity with us, until he is sensible that he has gone contrary to the order of Truth and condemns the same with sincerity of mind to the satisfaction of Friends.

SAMUEL WILLIS, Clerk.

Thomas Davis and his family had a home willed to them by her father. It was located in the eastern part of the Bethpage purchase.
Portions of land were also given to the single daughters for their homes, and the rest of his large land estate was ordered to be sold and the money divided amongst them all.
WAIT2 POWELL (Thomas1) m., had no children: His will proved 1750, made in 1746.
Gave œ50 to Wait4 the minor son of his (cousin) Nephew. The Estate to Wait3 Powell jr., father of said minor.
1710, Nathaniel Seaman and Thomas Powell were appointed by Westbury Monthly Meeting of Friends to speak to Wait2 Powell and John Fry about their attending the marriages of two of their neices, Hannah and Mary Willets, daughters of Richard Willets, dec., said marriages were accomplished by the assistance of a Priest.
1724, Another Committee reported to the Monthly Meeting that they had
spoken with Wait3 Powell about his marriage out of the order of Friends
-- also with his uncle Wait2 about assisting him in said marriage.
Thus with no children of his own he, Wait2 Powell, seems to have been a convenient uncle to help other people's children to have their own way.
SOLOMON2 POWELL, son of Thomas1 and his second wife Elisabeth, was the
only one that was born at Bethpage. He was young when his mother died and
his father soon took him and some of his sisters to Westbury to reside.
