Penn's Land Records - Sandy Rumble
William Penn and his heirs kept detailed records of their early land transactions. The process consisted of 5 steps: application, warrant, survey, return, and ends when the buyer receives a patent to his land. In the interim, the settler paid taxes on the land, but finalizing the purchase could take 40 years or longer. Indexes to these invaluable records are available online but are challenging to locate and work with as they are not computer-searchable. Once critical pieces of information are located, detailed records of the transactions can be ordered from the Pennsylvania State Archives.

Please register in advance.
