History of Marple Township

April 19 @ 7:00 pm8:00 pm

Free

 

Marple (present day spelling) first appears in England’s records in 1206 as Merphull. In 1287 it was known as Merpill and by 1431 Merpol. The name derives either from “maere hop hyll” meaning “the hill at the boundary” or “maere pill” meaning “the stream at the boundary.” One of Marple’s earliest settlers, Francis Stanfield, is given credit for bringing that name over from England and planting it in Marple Township, Pennsylvania.

The Newtown Square Historical Society invites you to our monthly program on Wednesday, April 19th at 7:00 p.m. to hear Rich Paul speak on the History of Marple Township in Pictures. Rich is a local historian, President of the Marple Historical Society, Massey House volunteer and long-time Marple resident. He will share pictures of the history of the Township from the Society’s wonderful Hilda Lucas collection.

All programs are held at the Dunwoody Village auditorium, 3500 West Chester Pike, Newtown Square, PA 19073 beginning at 7:00 p.m. Admission is free. Refreshments are served.

Come out and meet your history-minded neighbors and learn and be entertained!
