Keith's Provincial Councillors of Pennsylvania," Philadelphia, 1983, it is stated (P. 186-7) that Charles Read, the Philadelphia Alderman, Sheriff, Councillor, etc., died January 6, 1730-7, in the 51st year of his age.
He married ist, March 18, 1712, Rebecca Freeland, who was buried August 17, 1712; 24, November 1, 1713, Anne Bond, daughter of Thomas Bond; he was buried February 18, 1731; 3d, October 17, 1733. Sarah Williams, widow of Joseph Harwood. His first child was Charles Read, baptised February 20, 1714-15, aged 30 days. He was admitted to the Pennsylvania bar October 10, 1753. He married, June 11, 17:37. Alice, daughter of Jacob Thibou, a merchant of Antigua; she was born November 6, 1719, died at Burlington, N. J., November 13, 1769. Mr. Keith says Judge Read continuei in office as Judge, and ('ollector of Burlington, “until the Revolution," which is incorrect. He also says he was that Col. Charles Read, of the Second Burlington Battalio.1, who sought a protection from Col. Donop, in 1776, which unpatriotic act was ascribed to Adjutant-General Joseph Reed for nearly a century, until the mistake was corrected by Adjutant-General Stryker, of New Jersey, in 1876. Judge Read left three children: 1. Charles. born September 21, 1739, died November 20, 1783; 2. Jacob, born January 1, 1711-2, died September 14, 1783; 3. James. If Judge Read settled in the West Indies in 1774, as was his intention, according to the letter of Governor Franklin, it would seem more probable that it was his son who was the Col. Charles Read in question.--[WN]
