    Notes 
    • BIRTH Ballynakill, Westmeath, Ireland (see note)

      Some sources show Simon Hadley II place of birth as County Kings, Ireland and his death date as May 1756

      The will of Simon Hadley II was proven in Mill Creek Hundred, New Castle County, Delaware because Simon had purchased a large tract of land in New Garden Township, Chester County, Pennsylvania, which extended into New Castle County, Delaware. Source: The Hadley Family by Kathryn Dobbins Huggins, published by The Yadkin County Historical Society, Yadkinville, North Carolina, 1981

      Same Source:
      In 1712 Simon and Ruth brought their family to Pennsylvania. Simon purchased a large tract of land in Pennsylvania and was a minister among Friends, and a Trustee of the New Garden meeting. He was a Judge of the Orphans Court and in 1726, was appointed Justice of the Peace by Governor Fletcher.

      As of 1981 the house Simon Hadley II built in 1717 was still standing. It was a two-story stucco covered structure with a gabled roof. An addition of more recent origin was add to the rear. A "datestone" just above the third story window has inscribed "S. & R.H. 1717, H. & H.D. 1888" carved on it. The house is near the border between Pennsylvania and Delaware near the town of Hockessin, Delaware.

      Simon Hadley II spelled his name without the "e" (Hadly)

      Tradition tells that Simon Hadley II was murdered by a servant. He was a wealthy man and was known to have carried considerable amounts of money with him. It is thought that the servant murdered him for the money.

      According to information published in Memoirs by Effie Hadley Brindle, published 1972, Simon Hadley II of Somersetshire, England, was a descendant of Elizabeth Pantagenet, daughter of Edward III of England on his father's side. On his mother's side (Catherien Talbot) he was descended from William the Conqueror and Alfred the Great. There is some
      question as to whether or not this descendency is proven. The proven descenency starts with Simon Hadley I. (Per Barbara Lambert, Quaker researcher)
