History & History Related Items

Easton history:

"It appears that Thomas Penn, son of William, named Easton in honor of his uncle, the Earl of Pomfret. The Good Earl resided in England's Northamptonshire district, so it's no coincidence that Easton is located in Northampton County. Back in Northamptonshire, the Earl resided either in the town of Easton Neston, or else that was the name of his estate. Regardless, the Earl pulled a double-whammy when it came to name origins in the Lehigh Valley."
(from Name Origins of Northeast PA Towns by Mike O'Hara)
