      George Martin and Lydia Buffington
      George Martin married Lydia Buffington when she was about twenty-two. They lived
      in West Bradford Tp. Chester County, a little northwest of Marshalltown. This is also where
      George Martin died 6 month 22, 1780.
      Lydia's father, Richard Buffington, was a very early settler in the area, even before the
      Quakers. He had settled in Chester County in 1677. Richard Buffington, of Great Marlow,
      Buckinghamshire, England, was born 30 May 1645. The mention of his 85th birthday
      celebration on 30 May 1739, is contained in the Pennsylvania Gazette for 28 June-5 July
      1739. Buffington died in January 1747/8, between the 7th, which was the date of the Will,
      and the 26th, when inventory of his estate was taken. He was about 94. Richard Buffington
      married first, perhaps in England, or in 1676 to Ann _____, Ann died after 1695. His
      second wife was Mrs. Frances (Vane) Grubb, widow of his partner, John Grubb. Richard
      married a third time in 1720, to widow Alice Palmer.
      In 1677, Richard Buffington had crossed the South River (now the Delaware) and
      settled in Upland (now Chester, PA), where he was recorded as a tydable; this
      efore the grant to William Penn. Buffington traded in land and on 13 Sept. 1681,
      the first day court was held under the jurisdiction of Pennsylvania. He was
      witness, plainteff and defendant, being involved in three cases.
      No doubt Buffington was one of the settlers who came to the aid of Penn's colonists
      when twenty-three ships were frozen in on 12 Dec. 1681, some for the duration
      of the winter.He served on a grand jury 27 June 1683 and by 6 March 1687/8 was in
      Chester Township, where he became constable. He was involved in laying out
      the public road from Philadelphia to Lancaster.
      Richard was a man of spiritual conviction and he was baptized in the Baptist
      Church at Crum Creek, PA 26 June 1699, and was the first known person to have left
      money by will to the Baptist Church. He established a high standard of humane conduct
      towards the orphans and indentured servants put in his charge, and was able to impart
      his high ideals to his children. Patience was also a virtue: his wife Ann, was outspoken and
