From Scott Simon's rootsweb chart: Title: Thorn Pair Website Page: THIRD GENERATION - 19. Text: William Thorne was born on 7 Nov 1684 in Flushing, Long Island, NY. He died in 1742 in Nottingham, Burlington Co, NJ. Long Island Genealogies V II P 227. He was buried in 1742 in Nottingham, Burlington Co, NJ. They settled in Gloucester, New Jersey. He was married to Meribah Allen (daughter of Jedidiah Allen and Elizabeth Allen) on 21 Feb 1708/9 in Shrewsbury Monthly Meeting, NJ. Meribah Allen was born on 12 Nov 1686 in West Jersey. She died in Nottingham, Burlington Co, NJ.

From "The Record" Oct 1962, pg 236: "William Thorn was born Nov. 7, 1684, in Flushing and died in 1742 in Nottingham, Burlington County, N. J. On Feb. 21, 1708/9, he married in the Shrewsburg, N. J., Monthly Meeting, Meribah Allen, who was born Nov. 12, 1686, a daughter of Jedidiah and Elizabeth Allen. At the Flushing Monthly Meeting on May 3, 1705, 'Joseph Thorne desired at this meeting a Sertificate for his Son William wch is gon to settle at West Jersey Concerning his conversation among Us wch accordingly wast done' (Flushing Friends Rec.:1002:14). . . William Thorn was given land in West Jersey by his father, as stated in the latter's will. These two records identify the William Thorne who removed from Flushing to Burlington County before 1710 as the son of Joseph Thorne rather than of John Thorne, as erroneously stated by Dr. Eaton and others. . . The account of the marriage of 'William Thorn of Nottingham, Burlington County and Meribah Allen of West Jersey', includes among the witnesses Susannah and Joseph Thorn, perhaps William Thorn's sister, and either his father or brother."

Quote from The Record April 1889, pg 79: "His marriage is recorded in the Chesterfield (Burlington Co.) Friends' Records. He lived in Nottingham township. His buildings were burned in 1725, and the Friends raised money to help him in rebuilding. His will was made in 1742, in which he names 8 of his children."
