  • Notes 
    • Lewis Richard Ashhurst's mother died in childbirth and his father died when Lewis was sixteen years old. He emigrated to Philadelphia, PA in 1800 and became a bookkeeper in the office of Guest & Dancker. In 1808 he started his own dry goods import business. He became a Director of Richard Ashhurst & Sons, a Philadelphia bank, and was one of the founders of the Philadelphia Trust Company and its first president. The G. B. Hazlehurst Charts listed him as Louis Richard Ashhurst whereas the History of Mount Holly which refers to the Genealogy of the Ashhurst Family by Frank Willing Leach lists him as Lewis Richard Ashhurst. After his marriage to Mary Hazlehurst, he removed the house called, "Clover Hill" and built the house now called the Ashhurst Mansion which at this time has been converted into apartments.
