    Named for both his grandfathers-- his mother?s father, William Cooper, who was also a good friend of Henry Huddleston Sr., and his father?s father William Huddleston.

    Marriage license issued Nov 14 [New Jersey Marriage Records] in Burlington Co, NJ, but says both bride and groom were from Bucks Co., Pa.
    He was probably the William who "was an early settler of Bucks Co. where Langhorne now stands; he was a shoemaker" [from Bucks County Pioneers].

    William inherited the bulk of his father's estate and was said to have had considerable amount of wealth.

    by Frances Wise Waite for the Bucks County Historical Society]
    111 - 1731 Sep 18 - Petition of Wm. HUDDLESTON that court designate term that
    Eliz. THOMAS should serve him (she a minor indicted for murder of child of
    Robert DAVIS and was left with William HUDDLESTON by sheriff Timothy SMITH on
    trial until she was put out by order of court).

    This family may have been Presbyterian since several of the children were married in the Presbyterian church in Churchville, (Bucks Co.) Pa.

Signed William Huddleston and Dorothy Huddleston. Wit. John Cawley and Euetydus Longshore." [from Bucks County, Pennsylvania Deed Records 1684 - 1763 , p159, by John David Davis, 1997 by Heritage Books]

    In 1779 his 5 sons were in Middletown Twp., Bucks Co., Pa.
    In 1790 4 of his sons were still in Bucks Co.; Joseph was in Chester Co., Pa.
    Many of his descendants adopted the spelling "Huddleson."
    "At an early date the descendants of William adopted the spelling Huddleston and generally use same to the present." [from Huddleston Family Tables, by Geo. Huddleston, 1933, p 57.]
