We started this genealogy at the request of our Mother, Ella M. Pursell Weakley, who didn't live to see it completed. Her ancestors were William Hibbs, born 1665 in Gloucestershire, England; died 1711 in Byberry Township, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, and Thomas Pursell, born about 1662; died 1738 in Dover Delaware. All of the families included were connected in some way to these two individuals. All lines have not been followed to completion. Our main interest was in the families that remained in Upper and Lower Bucks County, Pennsylvania.
We welcome additions and corrections, but please provide documentation. Mary Ida Weakley Reitz and Jacqueline P. Weakley Kaminiski site administrators. Please don't hesitate to contact us.

The Spruance Library of the Bucks County Historical Society has just about everything available for the county; I can't say enough about their wonderful collection and very helpful friendly staff. Genealogybank.com has a vast collection of newspapers, obits, and much more. I have discovered many family links through their newspaper collection; I use it almost every day.
