Overview
Excerpt from The Steward Family of New Jersey
The first member of this family in America was Joseph Steward who came to this country in 1682 in the ship "Submission" with James Harrison, the agent of William Penn.
Harrison was a shoemaker of Bolton, Lancashire, and active as a minister among the Friends. For his activity and zeal he suffered imprisonment in Burgas-gate prison for nearly two months in 1660; in 1663 he was confined in the county jail at Worcester, and in 1664-5-6 in Chester Castle. He was appointed by Penn as his agent, to sell land in the Province of Pennsylvania to Friends, in 1681. Harrison was accompanied on his trip to America by his wife, his mother, his daughter and his son-in-law, Phineas Pemberton.
Pemberton was a grocer of Bolton, and like his father-in law was an active Friend, for which he also suffered imprisonment. For refusing to take the oath of allegiance to the King, and for attending Quaker meetings, he was imprisoned in Lancaster Castle.
Joseph Steward was the particular protege of Phineas Pemberton, with whom he undoubtedly lived for several years after he came to America.
