Tri-County Heritage Society

Ensuring a Future for Our Past...

These are two tax lists for the area between the Brandywine Creek and the Schuylkill River. At this time there were only three counties in existence: Philadelphia, Bucks, and Chester. Lancaster County was not formed until 1729 and Berks County was not formed until 1752. In modern terms, the area represented by these lists would include the tri-county area of southern Berks, northern Chester and eastern Lancaster Counties.
