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.

Richard Buffington, Jr. (d. 1741) and his wife, Phebe Grubb (d. 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 (d. 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.

Collection Arrangement: 

The Buffington – Marshall papers were originally part of The Gilbert Cope Historical and Genealogical Collection. When the collection came to CCHS, 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.
