(The QUICK family has been traced to the 1500’s and originated in Narden, Holland). James and Hannah were the first permanent settlers in Quick's Bend, although Phillip Painter and his wife had been on the ground and made some improvements. James served with the North Hampton Rangers in the Revolutionary War. He married Johanna (Hanna) PELTON.

 JACOBUS (James) QUICK was born in 1753 . He married Johanna (Hanna) PELTON
