Hi Loren,
Any records that might exist before William Penn are most likely either in the Philadelphia City Archives or out in the State Archives in Harrisburg. And that's just an educated guess. You can try the Spruance Library, but I doubt you will find much that far back.

The Spruance Library collections more or less cover the county since it was formed in the 1680s. Earlier records are tough to come by.

If you would like the name of the person with the most complete answer, I can put you in touch with a pro that will tell you exactly what is what in the ways of availability. Please e-mail me. JeffK0603@aol.com

Respectfully,
Jeff
