EAST BRADFORD

 

Bradford was organized about 1705 and Richard Buffington was constable for that year. He was succeeded by Robert Jefferis in 1706 and Abiah Taylor in 1707.  In this, as in some other townships, the first settlers were not the first owners of the land, and the first surveys were made for persons who had purchased before leaving England, if indeed they ever came over. Prior to 1686 it had not been surveyed and was an unbroken wilderness existing where now may be seen some of the finest farms in the county. The Welsh tract had been laid out, and its western line afforded a base for further operations, as did also the surveys to the southward, in Birmingham. About the year 1686 surveys were made of nearly all the land south of the Strasburg Road, but some of these were afterwards altered. Among the landowners who became actual settlers, Richard Buffington was probably the first. He was the ancestor of the numerous family of that name, and had settled at Upland (now Chester) before William Penn obtained a grant for Pennsylvania.

 

At a court held in November of 1731 a petition was presented, signed by George Strode, Joseph Townsend, James Jefferis, Abiah Taylor, Samuel Scott, Richard Buffington, Henry Woodward, James Tull, Isaac Vernon, Abraham Marshall and 14 others, asking for the division of the township and defining of the boundaries, the township was then divided into 2 townships.

Bradford was probably named from Bradford in Yorkshire, or the town of the same name on the Avon, in Wiltshire, England.

East Bradford was reduced in size in 1856 by the cutting off of a portion of its southern end and attaching it to Birmingham. The line between East Bradford and West Bradford was changed somewhat in 1857, so as to make the Brandywine the line at or near Sugar's bridge, adding land of John Pollock to East Bradford.
