Neshaminy refers to many things in Bucks County. The name is of Indian origin, the more likely meaning is "the double drinking place," or "where we drink twice", according Dr. Amandus Johnson.3 Below is an overview, of some of them.

There are no villages but several hamlets of about half a dozen houses, each, namely: Warrington, Neshaminy, Tradesville and Pleasantville.3


Middletown Friends meetings were first established at Middletown in 1683, and held at the houses of Nicholas Walne, John Otter, and Robert Hall. The first meeting-house was built in 1690, near Neshaminy creek, a mile west of Langhorne, whither it was removed in 1734, the present house in the town being the third. 3a

It was first called the Neshamina Meeting because of its location near the Neshaminy Creek. In 1692 that area was designated as Middletown Township, and what is now Langhorne was part of Middletown Township. By 1702 the Neshamina Meeting had changed its name to Middletown Meeting to adapt its name to its locality.
