EMANUEL STRATTON (+) married Hannah Hancock, November 6, 1713. She was a daughter of Timothy and Susannah (Ives) Hancock and was born June 25, 1695. Her home was in Chester Township, Burlington County, and this marriage is recorded on the minutes of the Haddonfield monthly meeting.?? At this time Emanuel was "of Gloucester County." December 28, 1717, he purchased from Timothy Wilkins, 117 acres of land in Evesham Township in Burlington County. September 24, 1719, he bought two acres, seven perches of land of William Sharp, and in May, 1723, he bought of his brother, Mark Stratton, land in Evesham....

Emanuel Stratton made his will April 5, 1725, and died before the seventeenth of the following June. He was probably a comparatively young man at the time of his death. His will is recorded at Trenton, Liber 2, folio 309. His brother Mark, whom he made his executor, outlived him thirty-one years.
