Simon was "descended from land proprietors of Hadleigh of Somerset, England. He ... migrated to northern Ireland when King James I sent English, Scottish settlers, and colonists to settle the plantations, which were seized by the Crown, when Britain declared the rebellion Celtic Chiefs guilty of treason. The Simon Hadley I family was reported to be of wealth." His wife and daughter Jane joined the Quakers who criticized his approval of Jane -- a Quaker -- marrying Mr. Kearns "who was believed to be Catholic. ... In 1680, Simon owned land of Manor of Chantarfe, and this is believed to be in the Dublin area. It is mentioned by one historian this is on a river. The records of the Office of Arms, Dublin Castle states Simon I petitioned Parliament about 1680, for protection against possible confiscation of his property, should the area be forfeited to the Crown, as was threatened. A family historian states Simon I owned iron works in Kings County, Ireland, and a Fishery in Dublin. It is thought he spent his last years at Ballinakill, just north of Kilkenny in Queens County, now Laois County, or near Tullamore in Kings County, now Offaly County, between Tullamore and Dublin. Since Jane and Simon II married into the Kearns family, it is believed the Kearns lived in the same area. ... Simon was reprimanded for his military activities, and later disowned for marrying out of unity to his second wife, Elizabeth, after Catherine's death. Moate MM records reflect that Simon I apologized for his conduct" (source: The Kearns Heritage: Ireland to Randolph County, NC). This source also quotes page 5 of the Lyle Hadley book: "In 1710, Simon Hadley, the elder, came to dwell in our neighborhood after the wars, by too much indulging in his children, and his carelessness in religious matters. It appeared he had little more than a shew of religion which he was admonished, and instead of receiving exhortation, and practicing the same, he desired to be left alone, and in about three weeks after the death of his wife, who was a woman of good repute in the area, he being about seventy years of age, and was married."             Simon Hadley I
