Anthony Duche Sr is included in the "Highly Improbable" list as a
passenger on the Welcome. The first record for Anthony Duche in PA is to be
found in the marriage register of the 1st Pres. Church in Philly.....1705..
It is thought that as nothing has been found on Anthony before the arrival
of the Canterbury, it is believedt probable that, if he did cross with Penn on
any ship as 'lore' has it, it was on Penn's second voyage and not the first (the Welcome).
Anthony Sr, a potter, married Anne Doz, said to be daughter of Andrew
Doz. The marriage record......19, 4m 1705, does not say that Anthony was a
widower, but he probably was, as in his will he names his son Anthony first,
though the baptism of son Andrew comes so soon after the marriage that we
can be sure he was the firstborn of Anne Doz. Catharine Swanson, dau of
Christopher and Christian Swanson of Wiccacoe, married Anthony Jr, and was
his first wife...and mother of all his children. Anthony Jr also married
2nd, Sarah Evans and 3rd, Sarah Falconer.
