MIDDLETOWN FRIENDS' MEETING

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. 7

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. 4a

Bucks County Gazette July 3, 1902

John Buckman, a well-known farmer, who lived above Hulmeville, was buried in Beechwood Cemetery on Saturday last. Several years ago when Mr. Buckman farmed near Langhorne, a cyclone destroyed all his out-buildings and his house also was demolished. Mrs. Buckman and children, during the storm, ran into the cellar of the home and although badly frightened were not injured in any way. Some of their household effects were carried several miles by the sever gale.
