~ Wrightstown

Wrightstown was organized in 1702-3.  Among earliest inhabitants in Wrightstown, John Chapman and James Ratcliff, a noted preacher in the society. Soon after 1684, Chapman went to his purchase in Wrightstown, where, within about twelve months afterwards, his wife had two sons at one time, whence he called the place Twinborough. At this time Chapman's place was the farthest back in the woods of any English settlement. Thomas Langhorne came the same year, but died soon after. 2

Wrightstown the village is in southeastern Wrightstown Township on Durham Road between Newtown and the Anchor. 3
