Capt. Bartholomew Penrose came of ancient English lineage, and just prior to
1 096 PEPPER
his emigration to Philadelphia in 1700, resided in Bristol, England, where his
brother, Thomas Penrose, was a prominent and wealthy shipbuilder. Soon after
his settlement in Philadelphia, Capt. Bartholomew Penrose engaged in the ship-
building business, and about 1706 built the "Diligence," having for a partner in
her ownership and equipment William Penn, and also Col. William Trent, James
Logan and others. The earlier voyages of the "Diligence" to foreign parts on
commercial ventures were made under the direct command of Capt. Penrose, as
shown by Penn's correspondence of that date. Capt. Penrose died in Philadelphia
and was buried at Christ Church, November 17, 171 1. He married, in 1693,
Esther, daughter of Toby and Esther (Ashmead) Leech, of Oxford, Philadelphia
county, an account of whom and the distinguished services of Toby Leech, as a

chant in Philadelphia. He was the owner of the "Brittania," part owner in 1747

was an active member of Christ Church and one of the founders of St. Peter's
Church, a signer of the petition to the Proprietaries for the use of the lot at
Third and Pine streets on which to erect the latter church, though he died No-
vember 17, 1757, before the church was erected thereon. Thomas Penrose mar-
ried, October 21, 1731, Sarah, daughter of John Coats, a manufacturer of Phila-
delphia, by his wife, Mary, daughter of Warwick Hale, and aunt to Mary, the
wife of Thomas Plumstead. Mary (Hale) Penrose died July 7, 1777, at the age

delphia, January 22, 1733-4, died there November 28, 1815, was also a shipbuilder

Penrose. He was one of the prominent citizens in the early days of the Revolu-
tionary struggle. During the war between England and Spain Thomas and James
Penrose constructed the warship "Hero," which they sent out as a privateer to
prey upon the Spanish under the command of Samuel Owen. Thomas Penrose
was one of the earliest signers of the Non-Importation Agreement in 1765; was
named as a Port Warden of Philadelphia in 1766; was selected by the convention,
held June 18, 1774, as one of the first Philadelphia Committee of Observation;

delphia, September 14, 1776, died there of cholera, June 24, 1849. He was in
early life interested in the family business of shipbuilding, but having inherited
and accumulated considerable wealth retired from business before middle life.
He was chosen Port Warden of Philadelphia in 1804, and in 1812 was named as
superintendent of the Philadelphia Navy Yard at the solicitation of his personal
friend, Hon. William Jones, then Secretary of the Navy, under President James
Madison, and placed the navy-yard on a much higher plane of usefulness prior to
his resignation. He supervised the construction of the man-of-war, "Franklin,"
for many years the finest and most efficient vessel in the United States Navy.
Charles Penrose took a deep interest in philanthropic and charitable enterprises.
He was for thirty-one years president of the Southern Dispensary, and many
years Manager of the Humane Society. Like his father he was a regular attend-
ant of Friends" Meeting, though not a member of the Society. He married, Janu-
