Quaker settlers arrived in this region in the 1670s, and the Rancocas Village community was established. The village was a part of both Westampton and Willingboro until 1956. A post office was established in the area in 1838. On February 11, 1880, parts of Westampton were annexed to create Eastampton Township.
