Thomas Chalkley

Chalkley, Thomas (chôˈklē) [key], 1675–1741, Quaker mariner and missionary preacher, b. England. He made his home after 1701 in Philadelphia, Pa. He traded chiefly with the West Indies, navigating his own ship, and made preaching tours up and down the colonies from New England to the Carolinas and also through England, Scotland, and Wales. Chalkley's journal (1747), simple in style and elevated in thought, was widely read by many generations of Quakers.
