Probably married and resided in another parish for some years, but in 1652 leased some property at Westbrook, in the parish of Bromham, where he followed weaving.
Perhaps there is a missing generation as the available recordswould indicate Daniel father Joel at age 56, which seems rather old considering the times and average life spans.

Joel Baily was baptized on 29 January 1658 Bromham Parish, Wiltshire, England.<32>,<33> Joel is first recorded in Pennsylvania in a warrant for land: "At the request of Joel Bayly on behalf of Daniel Bayly in right of William Smith, of Brumhamhouse, Purchaser, that we would grant him to take up one hundred twenty five acres of Land in the County of Chester These are therefore in the Proprietary's Name to Will and Require thee forthwith to Survey or Cause to be Surveyed unto him the said Number of Acres in the aforesaid County where not already taken up according to the method of townships appointed by the Governor he seating & improving the same within six months from the date of Survey and make return thereof into the Governor's Secretary's Office. Given at Philada the 25th of 9th month 1684"
William Smith, of Bromhamhouse, in the County of Wilts, was a purchaser of 1250 acres of land from William Penn by deeds...dated 1 and 2 March, 1681. Of this he conveyed 125 acres to Daniel Bayly, of Westbrook, in the parish of Bromham, weaver, by deeds of 18 & 20 October 1681. Joel Baily, as attorney for Daniel Baily, conveyed the [125 acres] to John Radley 6 June 1695 (Deeds dated 6 December 1713, Abstracts of Chester County Land Records, Vol. 1, page 176).
There is no documentary evidence as to when Joel came from England. Lists of the ships exists, but no passenger lists, although those who boarded goods subject to duty were recorded. A possible explanation can be derived from the following information: William Withers of Bishops Cannings, Wiltshire, purchased 500 acres from William Penn (Shepperd, Passengers and ships, page 203), and conveyed the land to his son Thomas Withers on 22 Jan 1682 (Cope, page 11). Thomas reportedly came over in 1683 and took up the land in Chichester Township according to Gilbert Cope. In 1685 Joel Baily received judgment against Thomas Withers in the ChesterCounty Court for unpaid wages [4 pounds, 11 shilllings and 8 pence]. (see "Court Fight")
It thus appears probable that Joel came over with Thomas Withers as a servant. James Claypoole, treasurer of the Free Society of Traders, sent Ralph Withers of Bishop Cannings, Wiltshire, to Upland as his deputy treasurer. Claypoole loaded goods aboard the ship "Jeffrey" on 9 September 1682. In letters, James Claypoole mentioned that "10 servts" were aboard the "Jeffrey" (Pennsylvania Magazine of History and Biography, Vol X, pages 197 et seq.); six of those servants have been idenitifed (see Passengers and Ships, page 59, footnote 113). Ralph Withers, probably a relative to William Withers, died "soon after his arrival". Letters of administration were issued for his estate 12 March 1683 (Penna. Archives, 2nd Series, XiX, page 383). It is a possibility that Thomas Withers also came on the "Jeffrey". If Joel Baily came over as his servant, he was also aboard that ship which arrived at Upland before the end of October 1682.
Joel subsequently purchased 150 acres in Midletowne [sic] Township from Thomas Nossiter and his wife Ann per deed dated 15 12mo 1692. He later purchased another 50 acres on the other side of the creek, in Ashton, from John Nield, deed dated 1 1st month 1694.<34> He married Ann Short, daughter of ___ Short and Miriam Ingram, after 11 April 1687 Chester Co., PA; intentions were first announced at the monthly meeting for Chichester and Concord on 14 March 1686/87. Second intentions were announced at Birmingham on 11 Apr 1687. No marriage certificate was recorded, so the exact date of their marriage is not known. Joel was appointed constable of Middle Town on 9 March 1698.<35> In the latter part of 1698 he moved to Ashton Township and became a member of the Concord Meeting. On 10 January 1703 he was appointed, together with John Lea, as a representative to the Quarterly Meeting from the Concord Meeting.<36> Joel was appointed Constable of Ashton on 29 February 1704.<37> At the monthly meeting for Chichester and Concord on 11 December 1704, "Joel Bayly Layd his intention of his and his familyes Removall to New-wark [now Kennet] Monthing Meeting desiering a Certificate from this meeting". The request was granted at the next meeting on 12 Feb 1704.<38> On 24 February 1708 Joel was appointed Constable for Marlborough Township. Newark [now Kennet] Meeting records show that Joel and Sam'l Graves were appointed overseers of the meeting on 3 September 1709 until further order. Joel was appointed one of the overseers for the preparative meeting of Kennett on 6 December 1712; he served until 6 Mar 1714 when John Miller was appointed to take his place.<39> He and Ann Short were named in a deed on 8 September 1713 Chester County, PA, by which 50 acres was conveyed to Thomas Dutton.<40> He witnessed the will of John Miller on 17 August 1714; it was proved 8 Dec 1714. He mentions wife Mary, sons Joseph, James and William, and daughters Martha, Sarah, Elizabeth, Susanna and Elinor, and son-in-law Joseph Hutton. The will was witnessed by Joel Baily, Gayen Miller and John Wily. Joel was named as co-executor of the will of Alexander Stewart, his son-in-law. Alexander left him a "Sorrel pacing mare" in this will. Gayon Miller and Joel Bailey [sic] were appointed "friends to take care of burials" for Kennett meeting.<41> He witnessed the marriage of Daniel Baily and Olive Harry on 16 March 1721 Goshen Meeting, Chester Co., PA; Newark Monthly Meeting records of 7 January 1720 report: "Daniel Bailey requests of the Meeting a Certificate of marriage to Chester Monthly Meeting; therefore this meeting appoints William Webb and Thomas Wickersham Junior to make inquiry into his clearness to marriage and conversation and produce a certificate at the next meeting." And on 4 February, 1720, it is recorded "Pursuant to the sd order the Friends appointed have produced a certificate to this meeting signifying Daniell Baily's clearness in marriage from all other persons except Olive Harry; which being here read and allowed of by the said meeting."<42> "Joell Baily in the behalfe of himselfe and family requests a certificate of removall to Newgarden monthly meeting" according to the Kennett records of 3 September 1726. He and his family were received by Newgarden meeting on 31 December 1726. He left a will on 10 December 1728 Marlborough Twp., Chester Co., PA; his listed the following specific bequests: (1) To my son Daniel, eight pounds to be paid within one year "of my deceas"; (2) To son Isaac, four pounds to be paid within one year; (3) To son Joel, ten pounds to be paid within one year;
5G Uncle Joel Baily, Jr. was a cabinetmaker. Here is a link to a marvelous spice cabinet he made.
(4) To son Thomas, 193 acres in Marlborough Township, Chester County [of 400 acres he had purchased from Richard Barnard], as well as "one horse he taking his Choys of all I have", and fifteen pounds to be paid by son Josiah within one year; (5) To son John, 207 acres of the land purchased from Richard Barnard; (6) To son Josiah "my now Dweling plantation" of 100 acres, (7) To daughter Mary ten pounds to be paid within one year and a "Chest of Draws"; (8) To daughter Ann, ten pounds to be paid within one year and "one fether bed and furniture"; (9) To granddaughter Ann Stewart, ten pounds to be paid within one year.
He directed his "moveable estate to be sould and after my Just debts and before mentioned Leguses is paid if there shall any over plush be Left it shall be equealy devided between all my Children".
Sons Thomas and Joel were nominated as executors. The will was witnessed by John Strode, Richard Hayes and Joseph Taylor.
In a codicil dated 9th day 12th month 1731-2, Joel directed that Josiah was to pay to his sister Mary Harlan an additional ten pounds, and that sons Thomas and John would each receive one-half of the 400 acres purchased from Richard Barnard. The codicil was witnessed by John Strode, Wm. Webb, John Hope and George Carson.<43>,<44> He died in 1732 Chester Co., PA. His estate was probated on 8 April 1732 Chester Co., PA; letters of administration were issued to his sons Thomas and John. The estate was appraised at 366 pounds, 11 shillings, and 9 pence.<45>
Ann Short is generally accepted as one of the passengers who accompanied William Penn to Pennsylvania on the ship "Welcome". One of the most completely researched works states it is "highly probable" than Ann Short was such a passenger. George F. McCracken, The Welcome Claimants Proved, Disproved and Doubtful: With An Account of Some of their Descendants (Publication of the Welcome Society of Pennsylvania, No. Genealogical Pub. Co, 1970). The argument is as follows: Isaac Ingram, a proven passenger on the "Welcome" died en route. In his will he left to "my Sister Miriam Short lately deceased her three Children Adam, Miriam, & Anne Short all that Thirty pounds lying in Ambrose Riggs hand...to be equally divided between them (viz) Tenn pounds apiece further it is my will & minde that my Sisters Children aforesaid have all the goods on board the Welcome equally divided between them". The assumption is made, as there was no provision for the sale of the goods on board for transport of the proceeds to England, those named were also on board the ship.
Other circumstantial evidence is that Miriam Short is recorded as a resident of Chester County shortly after the "Welcome" arrived, and married George Thompson, a proven passenger. The marriage was conducted by Lawrence Carolus Lockenius, a Lutheran clergyman, and was somehow contrary to the laws of the province. Charges were brought against Thompson, but were dismissed when no one appeared to testify against him on 14 Feb 1682/3. By 6 11mo 1684, Miriam had a child and was receiving public assistance. It is not known if George had died or had abandoned her. She later married William White of New Castle County, whose will was probated on 14 September 1703. Her third marriage took placed on 30 November 1704 at Chichester, when she married Aaron Coppock of Aston Township who died 10 10mo 1726.
It has been said the only noteworthy aspect of this particular ship was that William Penn was aboard, making his first trip to his American property. In July, 1682, the ship's master, Robert Greenway, began to load the ship in preparation for the trip. In August newspaper articles noted that Penn had "taken leave" of his friends and was preparing to board the "Welcome" to make the trip in the company of five other ships. On September 2nd another paper noted that Penn had sailed two days earlier with "a great many Quakers" to settle "Pensilvania". During the trip many of the passengers suffered from smallpox, and approximately 30 died, including the above mentioned Isaac Ingram (and perhaps Miriam Short, the mother of Ann, as she is "late deceased" per Isaac's will?)
Records of the Court of New Castle on Delaware, Book B, p. 437, note the following: "On the 27th day of October 1682; arrived before yr Towne of New Castle in Delowar from England William Penn Esqr. Proptry of Penlivinia... ye said William Penn Received possession of ye Towne of New Castle ye 28th of Octobr 1682." She was born England. She married Joel Baily, son of Daniel Bayly and Mary ___, after 11 April 1687 Chester Co., PA; intentions were first announced at the monthly meeting for Chichester and Concord on 14 March 1686/87. Second intentions were announced at Birmingham on 11 Apr 1687. No marriage certificate was recorded, so the exact date of their marriage is not known. She died Chester Co., PA. She and Joel Baily were named in a deed on 8 September 1713 Chester County, PA, by which 50 acres was conveyed to Thomas Dutton.<46>
Thomas Baily, son of Joel Baily and Ann Short, was born Chester Co., PA.in 1734. He married Sarah Bentley, daughter of John Bentley and Mary ___, in 1734. New Garden MM records of 26 October 1734 note a report from London Grove MM that "Thomas Beally is married of the unity of friends." New Garden MM records the following dated 27 October 1759, "Thomas Baily having formerly been disowned by this Meeting for Marrying out of the unity of Friends by a Priest (her parents were Baptists from Newlin) & and having a Desire to be Rec'd into Membership again Produced a Paper to this Meeting desiring Friends to Receive him under their care; which Request after sollid Consideration is granted." Thomas got a certiificate from New Garden MM to Bradford MM on 5 April 1760. It read in part: "Whereas Thomas Baily have Requested a few Lines by way of Certificate In order to be Joyned to your meeting; these Comes to Inform You that After Needful Inquirey Made we Do not find but his Life and Conversation is in a good Degree Orderly: A frequenter of meetings and his outward Affairs are Settled to Satisfactory as far as Appears."<26>,<27> He was received on certificate from New Garden Monthly Meeting on 18 April 1760 by Bradford Monthly Meeting.
