PA Births: Philadelphia County, 1766-1780

Author: John T. Humphrey
This is a comprehensive index to the extant birth records for children born in Philadelphia County between 1766 and 1780. Each entry lists family name, the name of the infant, the date of birth or baptism, the names of both parents and the source where the information was found. If the mother’s maiden surname is given in the church record that information is also included. Philadelphia, America’s preeminent eighteenth-century city and principal port of emigration, was the birthplace of many people who relocated to other areas of the United States. Denominations covered in the Philadelphia County volumes include: Quaker, Catholic, Anglican or Protestant Episcopal, Baptist, Presbyterian, Moravian, German Reformed and Swedish and German Lutheran. Combined twenty-one church, meeting and pastoral records list more than 17,000 births.
