SAVAGE, Samuel, was admitted a freeman April 9, 1705 (of Philadelphia?), and paid for the same £1 2s,6d. He married Anna, the eldest daughter of Thomas Rutter, of Germantown, and with him went up to the Manatawny region to establish iron-works. (See memorial of Potts family.) The will of Samuel Savage, of Mahanatania, in the county of Philadelphia, is dated Sept. 25, 1719, and proved July 19, 1720. He appoints his wife, Anna, sole executrix, but "she is to take the advice and consent of my brother, John Savage, and my father-in-law, Thomas Rutter."
The children of Samuel and Anna Savage were:
Anna, the mother, was born 8,25,1686, and died in August, 1760. She married a second husband, Samuel Nutt, of Coventry, who established iron-works in Chester County. He died near the close of 1737.
Samuel Savage, Jr., married Ann Taylor, daughter of Isaac and Martha Taylor, of Thornbury. By indenture of May 5, 1740, his mother conveyed to him /10 of 9/24 of the iron ore on 250 acres on French Creek, his sister, Rebecca Nutt, being owner of the land and of 15/24 of the ore. By another indenture of May 6, 1740, his mother conveyed him 1/5 interest in Warwick Furnace, and two tracts of 650 and 705 acres thereunto belonging.
Samuel, by will dated Sept.. 22, 1742, devised his interest in Warwick and the mine tract to his son Samuel, after his mother's death; but the son died intestate, without issue, and it was inherited by his sisters, who sold their shares to Rutter and Potts.
The children of Samuel and Ann (Taylor) Savage were Samuel, left no issue, probably unmarried; Anna, m. ____ Walker; Martha, m. Thomas Hockley; Ruth, m. James Hockley; Mary, m. William Crooks.
