About Coopersburg, Pennsylvania
Among the distinguished admirals under Charles II, King of Great Britain, was Sir William Penn, who at his death left a claim of £16000 against the crown for his services. In consideration of this claim and with a view of securing to his Quaker brethren an asylum where they might enjoy their peculiar religious tenets in unmolested freedom and security, his son William sought and obtained from the said King the grant of a tract of land in America. The extent of the tract was to be three degrees of latitude in breadth and five degrees of longitude in length; the Delaware River was to be its eastern boundary and the beginning of the forty-third degree of North Latitude its northern boundary. It was called Pennsylvania by order of the King. The charter for it was dated March 4, 1681 and confirmed by royal proclamation in April of the same year. Penn with about one hundred colonists arrived in 1682, and soon after his arrival divided his province into three counties, viz: Philadelphia, Bucks, and Chester.
