  • Nottingham Lots : 37 lots of approximately 500 acres each given by William Penn to his colonists in 1702 although they lay in Maryland and were part of George Talbot’s “Susquehanna Manor” of 32,000 acres granted him in 1680 by Lord Baltimore. Map 
  • Brick Meeting House - William Penn set aside lot no. 30 (500 acres) of the “Nottingham Lots” in 1702 for a “common” and site of a “meeting house” as a bold move in the boundary line dispute with Lord Baltimore. It has been continuously used since the first log meeting house was erected in 1709. Map
