Berwyn is a Village in Eastown Village, Chester County, Pennsylvania. At the time of earliest immigration to the region of Berwyn, the wooded crest of the steep and rocky So. Valley Hill formed a natural barrier to extended settlement along the line of Tredyffrin and Easttown Townships. With the fertile Chester Valley to the north and good farming land, when cleared, to the south, why bother with breaking and clearing the ground a mile or so to each side of what is now Conestoga Road? This, evidently, was the thought of our first settlers, a group of Welshmen; purchasers following their countrymen, Howell James, grantee in the decade before 1700 of one thousand acres; extending from Tredyffrin, across Easttown, to Newtown. Prior to 1700, James sold off a two hundred fifty acre piece of his ground, lying along the Tredyffrin line and extending to the south on both sides of what is now Waterloo Road, to near the foot of Waters' Hill. This ground lay practically undeveloped in a number of different ownerships, mainly Welsh, until 1723, when it was sold to Peter Elliott a Radnor Blacksmith. Elliot sold fifty acres of his purchase, down the little valley of Darby Creek, to his son Morris, and left his name to a road opened northwardly to Conestoga Road. It is probably that he had his home and blacksmith shop at the spring (now no longer to be seen) west of the Bronze Works, but it appears that little was done with the remaining two hundred acres until it came into Llewellyn family ownership twenty odd years later. A part of this ground would now be considered the heart of Berwyn.
