Lower Makefield was organized in 1692.  Makefield is the first township named in the report of the jury that subdivided the county in 1692. Among the first landowners in 1684: Richard Hough, Henry Baker, Joseph Milnor, Daniel Milnor, Thomas Hudson, James Harrison, Thomas Bond, Henry Sidwell, Edward Luffe, Eleanor Pownall, William Pownall, John Clows, John Brock, Samuel Overton, Thomas Janney, Richard Vicker. Makefield had been settled near three-quarters of a century before the Friends had a neeting house to worship in-in all those long years going down to Falls. In 1719 the "upperparts" of Makefield asked permission of Falls to have a meeting on first-days, for the winter season, at Samuel Baker's, John Baldwin's and Thomas Atkinson's , which was allowed. In 1750, the Falls monthly gave leave to the Makefield Friends to hold a meeting for worship, every other Sunday at the houses of Benjamin Taylor and Benjamin Gilbert. 2

Gold's Island was known as White's Island in the 1800s, and Rotary Island in the late 1900s. It is located in the Delaware River close to the shore of Lower Makefield, just below Yardley. It is in the political subdivision of Trenton Township, Hunterdon County, now Mercer County, New Jersey. This info was published by Frances Waite , Professional genealogist, Doylestown, Bucks Co., PA. in 1999 in a very limited edition book about the White families of Bucks County. James Gould, mariner of Boston, purchased the island 10 March 1719
