     Jonathan Dickinson Sergeant was born in Newark, New Jersey, the son of Abigail Dickinson and Jonathan Sergeant, treasurer of the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University).
     He attended the College of New Jersey and the College of Philadelphia (now the University of Pennsylvania), receiving a bachelor of arts from each in 1762 and 1763, respectively. He then studied law in the Princeton office of Richard Stockton and was admitted to the bar.
Before the age of twenty Sergeant was actively engaged in opposition to the British during the Stamp Act controversy. In 1774 he became clerk of the New Jersey Convention, which selected delegates to the Continental Congress. The following year he was made secretary of the Continental Congress. In early and late 1776 he served briefly in the Continental Congress, resigning for part of the year to become a member of the New Jersey Provincial Congress and to lead the committee framing a constitution for the new state.
     After the Hessians burned his Princeton home December 25, 1776, Sergeant moved to Philadelphia. From 1777 to 1780, Sergeant served as Pennsylvania attorney-general, and in that capacity became an ex officio trustee of the University of the State of Pennsylvania. Five years later he was elected a trustee of the same institution, and after the 1791 union of this institution with the College of Philadelphia, he continued to serve as trustee of the University of Pennsylvania.
     Sergeant's sister Hannah married John Ewing (later Provost); another sister Elizabeth married Edward Fox (later Secretary and Treasurer of the university). Sergeant himself first married Margaret Spencer in 1775; when she died in 1787, he was left with eight children to raise. The following year he married Elizabeth, the daughter of David Rittenhouse, a fellow member of the American Philosophical Society. Together, he and Elizabeth had two daughters and a son. His son William attended the Academy of Philadelphia and graduated from the College of the University of Pennsylvania in 1792
After stepping down as state attorney-general, Sergeant had an active legal practice, assisting the state in such notable trials as the 1782 Connecticut-Pennsylvania dispute. In 1788 he defended the Anti-Federalist editor, Eleazar Oswald. His republican zeal led him to support the French revolution, especially during the Genet affair. While serving on the Committee of Health in October of 1793, Sergeant fell victim to the Yellow Fever epidemic that swept through Philadelphia.
     Her exact burial is uncertain but believed at this cemetery where her son and other family members were interred.

From Wikipedia:
     "Jonathan Dickinson Sergeant (1746 – October 8, 1793) was an American lawyer from Princeton, New Jersey. He represented New Jersey in the Second Continental Congress in 1776 and 1777. He later served as Attorney General for the state of Pennsylvania.
Life and career
     "Sergeant was born in 1746 in Newark, New Jersey, the son of Abigail (Dickinson) and Jonathan Sergeant. He moved with his parents to Princeton. He completed his initial studies and attended the College of New Jersey (now Princeton University), receiving his degree in 1762. His maternal grandfather, Jonathan Dickinson, had been the first president of the college at its founding in 1747. After Sergeant's graduation from the College of Philadelphia (now the University of Pennsylvania) in 1763 with an A.B. degree, he read for the law and entered practice in Princeton in 1767.
     "From 1774 to 1776 he was a member of the revolutionary New Jersey Provincial Congress. In early 1776 he went as a delegate to the Continental Congress, but he resigned in June to return home and serve on the committee that drafted New Jersey's first constitution. In November he returned again to the national congress.
     "In September 1777 he resigned from Congress a second time, this time to accept office as the attorney general of Pennsylvania. He permanently moved to Philadelphia and opened a law practice there on his return to private life in 1780.
     "Sergeant died in Philadelphia in 1793 and was originally buried in the Old Presbyterian Churchyard at Fourth and Pine Streets. In 1878, he was re-interred in the Laurel Hill Cemetery.
     "His son John Sergeant later represented Pennsylvania in the U.S. Congress. Another son, Thomas Sergeant, served as Pennsylvania secretary of state, attorney general and on the state Supreme Court.

Aslackby is about four miles southwest of Billingborough. Further investigation into Anne/ A[nnis's ancestry appeared to be fruitless because no Bench families could be found in the area."

Nathaniel Dickinson (Sr.) was a witness to the      Much inaccurate information has been reported about the ancestry of Nathaniel DICKINSON, the immigrant and pioneer settler of Hadley, Massachusetts. Much of this was based on the publications Frederick Dickinson [1897] and Wharton Dickinson [1901]. These early works posit a descent for Nathaniel from "John Dykonsen", a 1th century freeholder in Yorkshire. Dickinson [19041] was said to have claimed that the Dickinsons were said to descend from Walter de Caen, later Walter de Kenson, a companion of The Conqueror. The latest published version of this descent seems to have been Smith [1978]. Smith goes further proposing a common descent for "virtually every colonial Dickinson family from Massachusetts to Virginia." There was also an effort to tie Nathaniel into Massachusetts Bay Colony as part of the Winthrop immigration ca 1630, settling first in Watertown, MA. Other examples recounting this (erroneous) ancestry include FBS [1942] (full name of author unknown), and Dickinson [1884].
     George McCracken [1980] judged this descent and its extension to the colonial universe of DICKINSON families "mostly rubbish." McCracken wrote: "The earlier generations are hardly acceptable...as connections between the individuals are unlikely." Later, Stott [1998] uses meticulous research to completely dismantle these earlier fantasies to conclusively show the family to have descended from a DICKINSON family in Billingborough, Lincolnshire, and only traceable back to mid-1500. He also shows that Nathaniel only arrived in the colonies (Wethersfield, CT) ca 1637, with his wife, Anna (_____) GULL DICKINSON (widow of John Gull) and at least five children (born prior to leaving Lincolnshire). Stott[1998:174-178] also discusses Nathaniel's step-son, William GULL (by Anna's first husband, John BULL), and some of the GULL family ancestry, showing that William and Nathaniel were cousins. More recently, Stott [2016] has identified Anna's maiden name as BINCKS and identifies the first generations of her ancestry.
     I have constructed my ancestry for Nathaniel DICKINSON using the work of Stott [1998] and Stott [2016] and urge others to read these two articles and reconsider their own work. (Images of the McCracken and two Stott articles are attached.) with Waters Dickinson.5,6,7,8,9,4,10,11 Nathaniel Dickinson (Sr.) was a mentioned with James Bincks; Stott [2016:133-44] present some important evidence on the BINCKS and MUSSONancestry of Anna (BINCKS) GULL who married Nathaniel DICKINSON.12

Nathaniel Dickinson (Sr.) and Anna/Annis/Agnes Bincks immigrated circa 1637 to Wethersfield, Hartford Co., Connecticut, USA;
According to Stott [1998:168]: "Nathaniel arrived in Wethersfield, Connecticut, between 26 June 1636, when his daughter Ann was baptized at Billingborough, and July 1638, when his son Samuel was born at Wethersfield)."

First settler of Hadley in 1659, Deacon of the church, first Recorder of the town, Selectman, Town Magistrate, member of the Hampshire Troop and the First Board of Trustees of Hopkins Academy.

Her 1st husband. Stott [2016:139:fn28] cites: Aslackby, Lincolnshire, parish registers [FHL 1,450,460].3,1 Anna/Annis/Agnes Bincks married Nathaniel Dickinson (Sr.), son of John Dickinson and Elizabeth (?), on 27 November 1623 at Billingborough, South Kesteven District, Lincolnshire, England;
Per Stott [2016:133]: "Since writing the Dickinson article Stott, 1998), expanded searches in surrounding parishes led to the discovery of the marriage of John Gull and Annis Bench in Aslackby, Lincolnshire, on 10 May 1620. Aslackby is about four miles southwest of Billingborough. Further investigation into Anne/ A[nnis's ancestry appeared to be fruitless because no Bench families could be found in the area."

Much of this was based on the publications Frederick Dickinson [1897] and Wharton Dickinson [1901]. These early works posit a descent for Nathaniel from "John Dykonsen", a 1th century freeholder in Yorkshire. Dickinson [19041] was said to have claimed that the Dickinsons were said to descend from Walter de Caen, later Walter de Kenson, a companion of The Conqueror. The latest published version of this descent seems to have been Smith [1978]. Smith goes further proposing a common descent for "virtually every colonial Dickinson family from Massachusetts to Virginia." There was also an effort to tie Nathaniel into Massachusetts Bay Colony as part of the Winthrop immigration ca 1630, settling first in Watertown, MA. Other examples recounting this (erroneous) ancestry include FBS [1942] (full name of author unknown), and Dickinson [1884].
     George McCracken [1980] judged this descent and its extension to the colonial universe of DICKINSON families "mostly rubbish." McCracken wrote: "The earlier generations are hardly acceptable...as connections between the individuals are unlikely." Later, Stott [1998] uses meticulous research to completely dismantle these earlier fantasies to conclusively show the family to have descended from a DICKINSON family in Billingborough, Lincolnshire, and only traceable back to mid-1500. He also shows that Nathaniel only arrived in the colonies (Wethersfield, CT) ca 1637, with his wife, Anna (_____) GULL DICKINSON (widow of John Gull) and at least five children (born prior to leaving Lincolnshire). Stott[1998:174-178] also discusses Nathaniel's step-son, William GULL (by Anna's first husband, John BULL), and some of the GULL family ancestry, showing that William and Nathaniel were cousins. More recently, Stott [2016] has identified Anna's maiden name as BINCKS and identifies the first generations of her ancestry.

John Dickinson witnessed the will of Edward Dickinson on 8 January 1593 at Billingborough, South Kesteven District, Lincolnshire, England;
Per Stott [1998:166]: "Bequests were made to his mother Alice and to children Richard, Robert, Thomas, and Elizabeth. His brothers William and John witnessed the instrument."12 John Dickinson was Churchwarden in 1620/21 at Billingborough, South Kesteven District, Lincolnshire, England.3
