There are three phases of settlement of Todds in Chester Co – one in the 1710s, another in the period between 1755 and 1768, and a later phase after the revolution.
In the first phase came James and John Todd in the 1710s – James and John Todd both appearing on a will of Richard Mason in 1714 – James as executor and John as witness.
By 1719, both James and John appear on a tax list for New Garden Twp.
By 1723, James had bought land on
“White Clay Creek below New Garden” adjacent to lands of John Cain and appears
on tax lists from 1718 to 1750 (1718 in Kennett Twp, 1719-1722 in New Garden,
1724-1750 in London Grove Twp). James
disappeared from the tax lists after 1750 and is assumed, based on the 1767
estate settlement for James Todd in
John Todd appeared also in
John was a Quaker. His son Robert went to York Co, md there in
1760 and died in 1767. Robert had a son
Robert b 1763 who was in York Co in 1790 and migrated to Rostraver Township,
Westmoreland Co by 1794. John’s son William went to Guilford Co, NC where he
married in 1765, went to
In the second phase, there were two families that came to Chester Co
· the family of Mary Todd Lincoln consisting of Robert Todd 1697-1775 who settled in Pikeland Township in 1756 and then moved to Philadelphia Co after his sons secured land grants there beginning 1760 and Andrew Todd d 1791 who settled in East Whiteland Township, Chester Co by 1760
a James Todd settled in
In the third phase, some of the
children and grandchildren of the above two families continued to live in
In the northeast of the county,
Andrew Todd d 1791 moved west to
In the southwest of the county,
James d 1772 left sons John, James and Hugh.
James’ son Hugh died a few months later than his father in nearby
Coleraine Township, Lancaster Co.; James’ son John appears to have moved to
Honeybrook Township by 1790 and West Nantmell Twp by 1800 where he died in 1809
and left a large number of descendants; James’
son James appears in the tax lists for East Nantmell in 1774, 1775, 1780 and
West Nantmell in 1785. He is probably
the James who with wife Susannah buys and sells property in the Nantmells 1774
to 1780. James and Susannah are
mentioned in a land record in 1789 and they are mentioned as friends to Marian
Smyth in East Whiteland Twp in 1803. He
perhaps is the James Todd and wife in the
John Todd d 1809 left sons John
(deceased by 1809), James and William. John’s
son John had moved to
There were some passersbys
also. a Samuel Todd appeared in East
Nantmell in 1774 and 1780 (possibly the Samuel who died in 1803); a David Todd
And there were newcomers:
Dr. William A. Todd b 1762 of Bucks Co,son of
Joseph Todd 1734-1775, married Ann Downing of Downington,

History of Uniontom, Pennsylvan,ia,. 411
James Todd was of Scotch descent and was born in
ing year his parents removed to Fayette county, where his
mother died during the same summer and his father survived
her but a few months, and he was placed under the care of
Duncan McLean. His schooling was limited to one and a half
years attendance at the schools of the neighborhood. He, how-
ever, improved himself by reading a t night what books he could
procure, after the labors of the day, and joined a debating
society for further mental improvement. He served as county
commissioner in 1815-19, and while serving as such he read law
under John Bouvier, and at the expiration of his term he was
elected to the legislature and was afterwards re-elected for four
additional successive terms, always taking an active and leading
part in its proceedings.
He was admitted to the bar of Fayette county October 30,
1833, from which time he was eminently successful as an attor-
ney. I n September, 1825, he was appointed prothonotary and
clerk of the court, which offices he held until February, 1830.
I n December, 1835, he was appointed attorney-general of the
State by Governor Ritner and thereupon removed to Phila-
delphia. This position he held until 1838, when he was ap-
pointed president judge of the court of Criminal Sessions of the
until 1840, when the court was abolished by the legislature.
He then resumed the practice of law in
at once took a first rank among the leaders of that bar. He
died in Westmoreland county, to which he had removed in 1852,
September 3, 1863, in the seventy-seventh year of his age. A
eulogy passed upon Judge Todd was that he was the architect
of his own fortunes, and without the aid of schools or masters
he won his way to the bar, to the legislature, to the cabinet
and to the bench, acquitting himself in all with distinction.
Moses Hampton Todd was the son of Judge James Todd
who was appointed attorney-general of the state by Governor
Ritner, December, 1835. He was born in
31, 1845. After the death of his father at
the family returned to Uniontown where he read law with G.
W. K. Minor, and was admitted to the bar a t September term,
1868, and soon removed to Allegheny county where he remained
a short time, and on January 23, 1869, he was admitted to the
Governor Stewart January 16, 1907.
