The Langhorne mansion was 2 miles above Holmeville. The old road from Philadelphia to Trenton, crossing the Neshaminy just above Hulmeville, made a sweep around by the Langhorne house, and then on to Trenton. The part of the road from Neshaminy to Attleborough [Langhorne] was probably vacated when the Durham road was opened down to Bristol.. The Langhorne property was sold to Andrew Kennedy.
The villages of Middletown were Langhorne, formerly Attleborough / Attlebury, Hulmeville, (Langhorne Manor), Oxford Valley (and Eden), all post villages. Langhorne, the oldest and largest, is situated at the intersection of the Durham, Philadelphia and Trenton roads, 4 miles S.E. of Newtown, and 7 miles from Bristol. Langhorne, built at the crossing and intersection of these roads, was called "Four Lanes Ends," for many years, (because four roads ended there). In all old documents it is written "Attlebury".
Was this Huddleston family connected to the Gorby / Steadham / Stedhim / Stedham / Adair families ?
Was John Adair of Middletown Twp who had daus
who m. Haddonfield / Hattonfield, connected to
Robert or James Adair who m. Stedham (or Gorby ?)
relative of Maria Littlejohn ?
Robert Adair may have been connected to the
Eakin and Farris families.
