John Penn (aka "John Penn, Jr.", "John Penn of Stoke") (22 February 1760 – 21 June 1834) was the chief proprietor of the Province of Pennsylvania as of 1775 (now the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, a state of the United States), and also a politician and writer. He and his cousin, John Penn ("John Penn the Governor") held unsold property, of 24,000,000 acres (97,000 km2), which the Pennsylvania legislature confiscated after the American Revolution.Penn lived in Philadelphia for five years after the Revolution, from 1783-1788, building a country house outside the city. He returned to Great Britain in 1789 after receiving his three-fourths portion of £130,000, the compensation for the proprietorship by the Pennsylvania government. He and his cousin John Penn, who remained a resident in the United States, also received compensation from Parliament for their losses in the former colony.In 1798 Penn was appointed as High Sheriff of Buckinghamshire, and served as a Member of Parliament (1802-1805). He was appointed in 1805 as governor of the Isle of Portland. Also a writer, he published in a variety of genres.
Richard Penn (governor)
For other people named Richard Penn, see Richard Penn (disambiguation).
Richard Penn, Jr. (27 May 1735 – 27 May 1811, Richmond, Surrey, England) served as the Lieutenant Governor of the Province of Pennsylvania from 1771 to 1773, and was later a member of the British Parliament.
Richard Penn
Penn, of Laleham in Middlesex, was the second son of Richard Penn, Sr. (1706–1771) and the grandson of the William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania. He was educated at Eton College and St John's College, Cambridge before joining the Inner Temple.[1] In 1763 he and his brother John visited Pennsylvania, of which his family were still sole proprietors. He was qualified as a councilor on January 12, 1764. In 1771 he returned to Pennsylvania and was appointed Lieutenant Governor. He soon became Acting Governor when his brother returned to England to attend to the colony's legal interests. He proved popular with the provincials, taking much care over their commercial interests, but less so with his uncle, the Proprietor. After two years he was supplanted by the re-appointment of his brother as governor.
