Wm. Penn granted a warrant, in 1701, for the survey of 10,000 acres of land for his son, Wm Penn, Jr  being "the remainder due to him of 50,000 acres originally granted by me to his mother."  A tract of 5,000 acres was laid out for Penn, jr, on the west side of Fagg's Manor.  This tract was resurveyed in 1741, and the following is a "list of names of persons who have presumed to settle on Wm Penn's manor".

This manor embraces all of the eastern portion of Upper Oxford and a small part of Lower Oxford
