Description

Highly detailed regional map of the Northern British Colonies, featuring numerous place names, forts, Native American tribes, rivers, coastal banks, and other details.

Bucks County features prominently north of Philadelphia. Bucks County is one of the three original counties created by colonial proprietor William Penn in 1682. Penn named the county after Buckinghamshire, the county where he lived in England. He built a country estate called Pennsbury Manor in Falls Township, Bucks County.

The map is based upon Herman Moll's map of the region, issued in the 1720s.
