Henry Drinker (1734-1809) was born on April 21, 1734, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. His wife, Elizabeth Sandwith Drinker (1735-1807), was born in Philadelphia the following year. The pair were married on January 13, 1761. Drinker was a Quaker and an active member of the Philadelphia community. He served as the clerk of the Philadelphia Monthly Meeting and was also involved with other local boards and committees. In 1777, Henry Drinker— along with 18 other Quakers— was arrested and banished to Winchester, Virginia when their pacifist stance to the American Revolution was construed as an unwillingness to support the new nation. Henry Drinker died in 1809.
