Bucks County, PA will Abstracts -- 1682-1825

This document summarizes all the references to the Britton, Craig, Dungan, Gibson and Stephens families. When the reference is not for testator, the above names are bolded for ease in reference. The entries are organized by date within name; if one will abstract mentions 2+ families, it will be repeated in each section for ease in reference. Testator names are bolded only to signify direct family ancestry. Note: the term "December'd" is thought to be a euphemistic term for deceased; it seems to be a local colloquialism, found only in the Philadelphia area, and only in these early records starting in about the mid-1700s; it is not found in any dictionary. Note: currency prior to the Revolution in 1776 was the British pound (£).
