Easttown Township was erected about the year 1704. It is first mentioned on the court records by the appointment of William Thomas as its constable on December 27, 1704-5. It was doubtless so named on account of its position. Its territory was included in the original survey made for the Welsh, and was settled by them. The township is most noted as the home of the Wayne family, the founder of which, Anthony Wayne, first appears in the tax assessment of 1724.
