Warwick was organized in 1733.
When Warwick was organized all the townships immediately around it had already been formed except Warrington. the original limits included part of Doylestown, and the line between Warwick and New Britain ran along Court street. When the county was settled, and for many years afterward, this section was known as "The Forks of Neshaminy," because the greater part of its territory lay between the two branches of this stream, which unite in the south-east corner of the township.
Among the original purchasers of land, before 1696, were James Clayton, John Gray, Henry Bailey, Benjamin Twily, Nathaniel Stanbury, John Blayling, Dramell Giles, John Fettiplace, John Cows, Randall Blackshaw, George Willard, Thomas Potter and James Boyden.
The 13th of February, 1733, twenty of the inhabitants of this region, namely: Robert Jamison, Benjamin Walton, William Ramsey, Alexander Breckenridge, Thomas Howell, Hugh Houston, Samuel Martin, William Miller, jr., Valentine Santee, James Polk, Robert Sibbett, John McCollock, Arthur Bleakley, Alexander Jamison, Henry Jamison, Andrew Long, Joseph Walton, and Joseph Roberts, petitioned the court of quarter sessions to organize it into a township to be called Warwick.
The Neshaminy Church of Warwick, Church Building Chapel is one of the oldest Presbyterian churches in the county.. A number of distinguished clergymen have been pastors at Neshaminy, the Reverends Messrs. Tennent, Blair, Irwin, Belville, and Wilson.
There are no villages in Warwick. In 1784 Warwick, which then embraced a portion of Doylestown township, contained 609 white inhabitants, 27 blacks, and 105 dwellings.
