Hugh Stamper, Irish Quaker #52ancestors

Hugh Stamper is my fourth great aunt's fifth great grandfather....
My 52 ancestors post today is about Hugh Stamper, an ancestor of Henrietta (White) Linville

"Hugh Stamper, the father-in-law of John Calvert and the father of Judith Stamper Calvert, was imprisoned in Carlisle Castle Prison in 1663 (Cumbria County, England) for his beliefs, and also fined. Shortly after, he must have fled to Ireland.
"County Armagh had become somewhat of a safe haven for Quakers, but still with much prejudice. As the number of Quakers grew, they had established themselves in industries such as linen and wool manufacturing. Although their numbers were small, they controlled a good portion of the economy.
"Lurgan Quakers were instrumental in helping to perpetuate the Quaker religion in County Armagh and the rest of Ireland. Armagh saw more Quaker immigrants come to America than any other county in Ireland, and John Calvert was among them. He came with William Penn's Quakers into Pennsylvania in 1683.
"Hugh and Bridget Stamper continued to follow Quaker teachings, and both remained near Lurgan. When they died, they were buried in what is believed to be the oldest Quaker burial ground in Ireland. The graveyard called Lynastown, was begun by Thomas Lynas, for the purpose of burying his father, William, in 1658. Burials numbering about 200 continued there until 1967. The graveyard wall has been repaired, a new gate was in recent years rebuilt, and a large plaque inside the burial ground has the 200 names engraved on it.
"Hugh Stamper was buried in 9 July 1676, Bridget Stamper, buried 12 January 1681, a son Daniel buried the 24th November 1684, age 28 years, and Sarah Stamper, daughter of Hugh and Bridget, buried the 23 December 1674. There are no gravestones, reflecting the early Quaker belief.
"Of the two remaining known children of Hugh and Bridget Stamper, Judith Calvert (John), went to Pennsylvania with the fleet of William Penn in 1683, and settled on land in Upper Providence Township, later called Delaware County. Judith died sometime after 1704; John Calvert died in 1699, and was buried in Philadelphia."

(info from Greg Wulker)
Sometime between 1662 and 1663, Hugh Stamper, along with his wife and children removed with a group of Quakers to near Lurgan, county Armagh, Ireland. His name appears on the Hearth Tax list in "Lurgan Town" dated 1663-1665, showing one hearth, and taxed at 2 shillings, the fee at that time.
The removal into Ireland seems to have coincided with the English Parliament passing the Act of Uniformity in 1662. This Act was in part, meant to re-introduce the Book of Common Prayer in England and make it compulsory for religious services. It also required Episcopal ordination for all ministers. Another part of the Act was the Conventicle Act , passed in 1664 which forbade conventicles ( a meeting of unauthorized worship) of more than 5 people who were not members of the same household. The purpose was to prevent dissenting religious groups from meeting. It isn't known if Hugh Stamper left England on his own accord after his 1662 imprisonment, or was forced out of the country with the enactment of the new laws.
Of the two remaining known children of Hugh and Briget Stamper, Judith Calvert Chenoweth (John), went to Pennsylvania with the fleet of William Penn in 1683, and settled on land in Upper Providence Township, later called Delaware County
