Overview and metadata sections

A brief summary of the major individuals represented in this collection of Buffington and Marshall families’ papers follows. For detailed accounts of both families, as well as information on the careers of both Humphry and Moses Marshall, see Futhey & Copes History of Chester County, Pennsylvania (1881). Additional resources on both families and on Humphry and Moses Marshall may be found by checking the library’s book and manuscript card catalogs.

Buffington family

Buffington family manuscripts begin with emigrant Richard Buffington (died 1747/8). He was married three times and his children included Ann, Ruth, Richard (died 1741, married Phebe Grubb), Thomas, William, John, Hannah, Mary, Elizabeth, Lydia, Abigail, Joseph, and Alice.

Richard Buffington, Jr. (died 1741) and his wife, Phebe Grubb (died 1769), settled in West Bradford, their children were John, Frances, Phebe, Richard, Samuel, Henry, Catherine, Peter, Nathaniel, Jeremiah, Isaac, and Joseph. After Richard’s death in 1741, his widow Phebe married Simon Hadley.

Marshall family

Marshall family manuscripts originated from the family of emigrant Abraham Marshall (1669-1767) and his wife, Mary Hunt Marshall (died 1769). They had nine children, including Humphry Marshall (1722-1801), botanist, and his brother James Marshall (1725-1755), father of Dr. Moses Marshall (1758-1813).

Moses Marshall assisted his uncle Humphry in his botanical work, and also served as a Justice of the Peace for West Bradford Township.

The manuscripts in the collection cover the years 1707 to 1876. The bulk of the collection is connected to two families, Buffington and Marshall.

Buffington papers concern primarily the line of descent from Richard Buffington the emigrant, through his son Richard Buffington, Jr. who married Phebe Grubb.

Marshall family papers are primarily those of emigrant Abraham Marshall and his family, including his sons James and Humphry Marshall, and James’ son Dr. Moses Marshall (nephew of Humphry Marshall).

The collection includes: letters, deeds, accounts, receipts and other business papers, diary pages, summons, warrants and other legal papers, poetry, zodiac chart, advertisement of a murder, maps and land drafts, genealogy, apprenticeship agreements, tax records, etc.

Topics include: farming, botany, legal system, politics and elections, the poor, education, medicine, crime (includes murder, fornication and bastardy cases, etc.), slavery, etc.

The Buffington – Marshall papers were originally part of The Gilbert Cope Historical and Genealogical Collection. When the collection came to Chester County Historical Society, it consisted of six scrapbooks of individually and consecutively numbered, chronologically arranged documents. The only access to the collection was an incomplete and frequently erroneous name index. The documents have now been removed from the scrapbooks in order to help prevent any further damage from their highly acidic pages, as well as to increase ease of access by researchers. Gilbert Cope’s original numbering system has been retained, and documents should be requested by researchers by item number.

The processing of this collection was made possible by a grant from the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, 2006.

The creation of the electronic guide for this collection was made possible through generous funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, administered through the Council on Library and Information Resources’ “Cataloging Hidden Special Collections and Archives” Project.
