... Hugh Foulke erected the small, original log portion of his home around 1731. Hugh Foulke was a Welsh Quaker who came to America shortly after William Penn established his Colony in Pennsylvania. Foulke had already lived in Penn's Colony for about 40 years previously, before acquiring and moving to this 220-acre property in Richland Manor (Bucks County). The stone structure was built in 1838... and the large log addition sometime later.
