Margaret Penn, daughter of Sr William Penn and Margaret Jasper Penn, was born 1636. She married Anthony Sir Thomas Lowther (who died 1692) in 1666-67. Margaret resided in England. They had one child, in one source given as Sir Thomas Lowther and in another as Sir William Lowther, 1st Bart of Marske, (1670-1705). The William and Margaret Penn name duo appears to resurface in other generations, as brother and sister in an additional case. And as the 17th century unreels, Penns and Lowthers cross the ocean and set the stage for a competing search for family ties for the eventual late 20th century computerization of genealogy, wherein anyone can say when our Margaret was born.
