Jan Lucken, ancestor of the Lukens family of America, was born in Crefeld
on the Upper Rhine, whence came most of the thirteen original families of Ger-
mantown, Philadelphia, and where this family had occupied an honorable position

London, July 24, and arrived at Chester, on the Delaware, October 6, 1683, hav-
ing on board Thones Kunders, William Streepers, Reynier Tyson, the Op den
Graeff brothers, altogether some thirty-two German Palatines, comprising the thir-
teen families wlio founded Germantown on a tract of land purchased before leav-
ing Germany, by the Frank ford Company, and which was laid out to them on
their arrival. Francis Daniel Pastorius, the "Sage of Germantown," had preceded
them and assisted in perfecting the arrangements for their reception and was
many years their teacher and councillor.

Mennonites prior to accepting the invitation of William Penn to settle in his New
Province of Pennsylvania, and brought with them to America a copy of the first
Bible printed by the Mennonites, on the press of Peter Sebastian, 1598. A num-
ber of these German families had. however, been converts of George Fox, and
for several years after their arrival in Germantown, even those who were Men-
nonites associated themselves with the Friends' Meeting, having a separate meet-
ing for worship at Germantown, under the jurisdiction of Cheltenham, later Ab-
ington Monthly Meeting. Through this association a number of Mennonites be-
came members of the Society of Friends and retained this membership therein
after the establishment of a Mennonite congregation. Among these was Jan
Lucken, and his descendants have mainly held membership in the Society to the
