      "It is a fact worth noting that in many early documents Haverford Twp. appears as 'Harford', which was a common way at that time of spelling the name Hereford, a county in the Marches of Wales.  It was very generally understood that Haverford was name Haverford West in Wales and that "Harford" was a corruption thereof.  There is however on record in Philadelphia a deed...1st. part Thomas Ellis of Township of Harford, Pa..mentioned 500 acres laid out in Harford Twp. in Pa...  Besides there are several country villages viz: Dublin, Harford, Merioneth, Radnor in Cambry... some settlers at first called their plantation 'Haverford', and that subsequently the entire Township called at first Harford assumed the former name.  Also one place it says 'John Beevan of Harford should have been Merion.'"
