For the most part, they settled along the shores of the Patapsco in Baltimore County and along the Chop- tank in what was about to become Talbot County. In this Talbot group were Richard Gorsuch and Thomas Powell, both of whom became Justices of Talbot, and Howell Powell and Walter Dickinson, both prominent planters. 31 Philip Stevenson, who was on the Court in Talbot County in 1665, was probably one of the Virginia Quakers. 32 Among those who settled along the Patapsco were Charles and Robert Gorsuch, brothers of Richard and Lovelace Gorsuch, who settled along the Choptank in Talbot. 33 The increasing attitude of respect toward Quakerism, men- tioned earlier, was in large part due to the visits of three out- standing leaders of the new movement — John Burnyeat, George Fox, and William Edmundson. Burnyeat, the first of the three to labor in Maryland, arrived here in April, 1665, from Barbados. He spent the whole summer in Maryland — holding "large meet- ings in the Lord’s power." 34 In the spring of 1672 Burnyeat again returned to Maryland and experienced great success in his work. He called a General Meeting of all Friends in Maryland at West River. This was the beginning of the Baltimore Yearly Meeting, the second oldest yearly meeting to be organized in America. 35 In 1671 George Fox, accompanied by twelve other leaders, sailed for Barbados where he spent three months strengthening and expanding the Society of Friends. After a visit to Jamaica, the party, which included William Edmundson, sailed to Mary- 29 Ibid., pp. 88-94. 31 Archives of Maryland, LIV, xxi. 30 Ibid., pp. 92, 98-99.

They were the sons of a Loyalist Anglican clergyman, the Rev. John Gorsuch, who in 1647 was put to death in England by the Puritans. -Maryland Historical Magazine https://archive.org/stream/marylandhistoric47brow/marylandhistoric47brow_djvu.txt
