AMong the purchasers of land in Pennsylvania was Daniel Baily, of Westbrook, in the parish of Bromham, Wiltshire, weaver, who in 1681 bought 125 acres, which was subsequently located in Birmingham township. He did not come over, but Joel Baily, doubtless a relative, appears to have been concerned in the sale of the land to William Radley in 1713.

  The first mention of Joel Baily is at a court held in September, 1685, when he sues Thomas Withers for wages, and also for assault and battery. One Elizabeth Baily was married in that year to Jeremiah Cloud and in 1687 Joel Baily married Ann Short. At the first court held for Chester County the Swedish priest was complained of for marrying George Thompson to one Miriam Short, contrary to the laws of the province. Aaron Coppock married in 1704 Miriam White, a widow; in 1713 they join with Joel Baily and wife in selling land, and Coppock in his will, 1726, memtnions his son-in-law, Ralph Thomson.
