    Description

    Lock of William Penn's Hair. 2.5". A long lock of approximately two dozen strands of brownish hair belonging to William Penn. It is wrapped in a leaf of early eighteenth-century paper with a note which reads in part: "Thos. Mal: Granville Penn from L: Darthey - a Lock of their Grand Fathers William Penn's hair." A more recent pencil annotation to the page claims it was passed down through the Penn-Gaskell family line.

    Condition: Some small areas of loss along old folds. Pencil notations to page.
