Westampton History

Westampton Township was formed from parts of the Northampton Township on March 6, 1850. It was named because it included the western parts of Northampton. 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.
