Enoch was born in England and immigrated to the New World in 1687 when his father brought the family to settle in William Penn's new Colony. This fact is well established since his younger sister was born in PA in circa 1687. Therefore, Enoch was a young child of 4 years old when he first came to this country.

Not much else is known about him except that he raised his family in Bucks County, PA. At the time of the birth of his first born child William, Enoch was living in this area in circa 1712 and was married to Margaret Smith.
