  • Notes 
    • Stephen Guyon may have removed to Bucks County at a later date than his mother and younger siblings, since he co- administered the estate of Peter Guyon in Staten Island in 1761. He was in Bucks County in 1770, when he and his brother John purchased land. He is listed in the Bucks County Tax list until 1774, when he appears living with his widowed sister, Elizabeth Hibbs. He is listed in the "Pennsylvania Archives" as serving in the First Battalion of Bucks County, Light Infantry Association Co., of Bristol Borough, which was organized on the 9Th of October, 1775. We know he was older than his brother John, because he says so when he withdrew himself from the administration of his mother, Mary Rue's estate in 1782. He died unmarried in Bristol Township, Bucks County, in 1782.

      Stephen's will was dated 9/11/1782 and was proved on 2/31/1783. In it he bequeaths his mother Mary Rue five pounds a year for the rest of her natural life ( she died before him and he was too ill to administer the estate). He bequeaths his brother John one hundred pounds, his sister Mary Vansant's children in Virginia eighty pounds, and says their names unknown to him. He bequeaths his silver watch to his nephew John Hibbs, and his nieces Keziah and Jamima Hibbs, the sum of twenty pounds. He bequeaths to his sister Elizabeth his property in Bensalem, for the rest of her natural life and then to go to his nephew Stephen Hibbs ( his namesake) who is to pay his brother Samuel Hibbs fifty pounds when he receives his inheritance. The rest of his estate he bequeaths to his sister Sarah Hills, and her husband Johathan is appointed his executor. In 1799 Stephen Hibbs sold the Bensalem property which contained one hundred and eleven acres situated on the Neshaminy Creek to his uncle John Guyon. His mother Elizabeth's name was on the dead transfer.
      His estate inventory contained a number of loans owed to him.
