The Erwin Family

The Erwin Family in Bucks County

The Erwin Family were among the earliest colonial landowners in Upper Bucks County, having arrived in 1768. Within the first decade after arriving in the Americas they became the largest landowner in Bucks County. They served on the Bucks County Militia, helping to secure the country’s independence from England during the war and participated in Pennsylvania State Government.  The town of Erwinna was named for the patriarch of the family, Arthur Erwin.
