1689 List of Land-Holders of Chester County, Pennsylvania



Source Information

  • Title 1689 List of Land-Holders of Chester County, Pennsylvania 
    Short Title 1689 List of Land-Holders of Chester County, Pennsylvania 
    Publisher [Available online]
    A list of land-holders appears to have been prepared by or under the direction of Governor John Blackwell, about the year 1689, and it serves in a manner to indicate the extent of the settlements at that time, though it cannot be said to be complete, while many of those whose names are given did not reside on the land. There are evidently many errors in spelling of the names, which are given as in the original.
