A barn at Springton Manor Farm in Chester County, Pennsylvania (USA)

Springton Manor is one of seven Chester County manors established as part of an agreement between Charles II and William Penn. The first European settlers to occupy the early Springton Manor tracts were almost entirely of Scottish descent and “attracted to the area by the pure water, absence of marshes, and elevation of between five and six hundred feet above tide-water.” Ultimately Penn’s manorial system failed; by the time the Revolutionary War broke out, most Springton Manor settlers had been able to secure patents to their own tracts of land.
