Extract, page 120:
"But in process of time i had an inclination to remove thence with my family to the Province of Pennsylvania, and in order thereto we set out on the 3rd day of the Second Month (April) 1698, and came in two days to Liverpool, where with divers others who intended to go the voyage, we took shipping the 17th of the same month on Board the Robert and Elizabeth and the next day set sail for Ireland, where we arrived and stayed until the first of third month (May) and then sailed again for Pennsylvania. We were about eleven weeks at sea and the sore distemper of the Bloody Flux broke out in the vessel, of which died forty-five persons in our passage. The distemper was so mortal that two or three Corps were cast overboard every day while it continued. But through the favor of Divine Providence, I, with my wife and nine children escaped that sore mortality and arrived safe at Philadelphia about the 17th of 5th Month (July) where we were kindly received and entertained by our friends and old acquaintances until I purchased a tract of about 700 acres of Land about 16 miles from Philadelphia, on a part of which I settled, and divers others of our company who came over sea together settled near me about the same time, which was the beginning of November, 1698, aforesaid, and the township was named Gwynedd or North Wales.

This account was written the 14th of the 11th Month (January) 1702, in British (or Welsh) by Edward Foulke [ID0168] and translated (in 1810) by Samuel Foulke." ID0147

Note: About an 11 week journey - many people suffered from distemper of bloody flux - 45 died, but none of the Foulke family.
