Lately died at Skipton, in Craven, greatly respected, Mr. William Binns, aged 85 years, one of the people called Quakers, and brother to Mr. Jonathan Binns, of Liverpool.What is very remarkable in this family, there were nine brothers and a sister all living, when the youngest but one was upwards of sixty years of age.

He died at the House of his son in Law at Lumb Gill near Addingham and was Buried at Skipton. He was an honest man and charitable when he saw real occasion. Very careful in the way of Trade whereby he procured a good fortune for his daughter. Particularly diligent in attending Meetings to old age when he was bad of sight and could not hear anything said in Meeting. I once heard him say when he had let Business hinder him from attending a Meeting on a week day he thought he should not do so again, and I believe never did. He left a good report amongst his Acquaintances.

When a young woman was much addicted to wildness and vanity but the Lord was pleased to visit her with his judgments mixed with mercy. I suppose many years before she entirely gave up vanity and foolishness. I have often seen her under great trouble and anguish of Spirit for the same. She was for a long time satisfied that there was something required of her in Public before she gave up to it, thinking she was not sufficiently reconciled to her brother as to offer her gift (Matt 5.23) but left it at the altar [?] till she went through many severe conflicts and deep inward sufferings before she gave up. She appeared in public about the 28th year of her age, which was then and continued to good satisfaction. She several times visited Friends Meetings in most parts of England and Wales and twice as far as Ireland being frequently engaged in family visits to good satisfaction. She lived to about the age of 78 was a Minister about 50 Years. See a testimony from the Monthly Meeting concerning her.
MARTHA WILLIAMS, of Neath, in Glamorganshire, was the daughter of John and Abigail Binns, of Carleton Biggin, near Skipton, in Yorkshire, and was born in the Fifth month, 1710. She was educated in Friends' principles, but in her youth was prone to vanity. Nevertheless, by divine grace, she was effectually enabled to turn her back on the pleasures and allurements of this world, and her mind became engaged to seek an inheritance incorruptible.
About the twenty-eighth year of her age she found it to be her duty to bear a public testimony to the sufficiency of that power which had visited her; and great were her sufferings and conflicts under a sense of her unworthiness and inability for so great a work; but being renewedly helped and instructed by the extendings of divine love, she was strengthened to yield obedience to the requiring.
In 1746, she married Ambrose Williams, and settled at Pont-y-pool, in Monmouthshire. They were true helpmeets, giving up each other freely to the service of truth, trusting in the Lord, and, making it their principal care to seek first the kingdom of heaven and the righteousness thereof, all things necessary in this life were added unto them.
Under this devotedness of mind she was frequently concerned to visit Friends in most parts of England and Wales, and was twice in Ireland. She was a great encourager of the weak, a seeker after the scattered, and a sympathizer with the afflicted; and her cheerful temper gained her much place in the affections of young people, who were the particular objects of her tender care, and her advice often proved the means of drawing them nearer to the pure witness within.
The latter part of her life she lived with her son-in-law and daughter, Evan and Elizabeth Reese, of Neath. She was chiefly confined at home for about six months, and in the last two months suffered great pain; but was preserved in quietness and peace of mind, and was at times strengthened to express her thankfulness, that she was waiting the Lord's time to remove her to an everlasting rest. She tenderly advised her children to do their day's work in the day-time; putting up her prayers to the Father of mercies for their preservation, with great fervency; and praising the name of the Lord, who had been the stay of her youth, was the staff of her declining age; and who graciously favoured her with his presence to her latest moments.
She quietly departed this life at Neath, the 19th of the Second month, 1788, and was interred in Friends' burial-ground, at Swansea, the 24th of the same; aged seventy-eight, and a minister about fifty years.

He was a man greatly tossed with many perturbations of mind and grievous exercises both in Spiritual and Temporal affairs having many Law suits about Tythes and other matter which could not be well avoided and was admirable in always getting the better and coming off without dishonour to the truth. Was an uncommon charitable man thinking nothing he could do too much for Strangers & any poor friends in need. He kept an open House. He appeared in Public testimony about 40 years at times did not travel much was once in the West to the Lands End and other small Journeys.
His plain way of delivery rather offended some which was cause of much trouble to him. He had a tedious Illness being some months obliged to be attended upon night and day having little help for himself.
