  • Henry Stauffer was born in Ibersheim, Germany on 1724 and died November 27, 1777. He immigrated to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on September 9, 1749, and settled in Bedminster on 23 acres (93,000 m2), purchased of William Allen, June 12, 1762. The purchase of this land was recorded in the history of Bucks County, Pennsylvania. Please see below this recording. It is said three brothers came to America, that they were potters along the River Rhine and manufactured fine china and porcelain ware in Alsace, France and Germany. In America they expected to find a superior quality of clay and came here to establish a china plant, but as the clay did not turn out as was expected they turned their attention to milling and farming. One of the brothers is said to have gone South, but where the third brother went to is not known. As has already been stated, Henry Stauffer finally settled in Bedminster Township, where he purchased his land from William Allen, the deed bearing date of June 12, 1762, for 213 acres (0.86 km2) and 91 perches, for which Henry Stauffer paid the sum of œ400, 8 shillings and 8 pence "lawful money of Pennsylvania, with a rent yearly forever of one pepper corn, if the same shall be demanded." After the death of Henry Stauffer the homestead in Bedminster Township came into the possession of his son, Ulrich Stover, who was the second owner. "The deed of Henry Stover, Jacob Stover and Catharine his wife, and Ralph Stover and Catharine his wife, all of Bedminster Township, county of Bucks, state of Pennsylvania, yoeman of the one part, Ulrich Stover, sons of Henry Stover, of the same township, county and state yoeman of the other part, for 213 acres (0.86 km2) and 91 perches of land in Bedminster Township for 1150 pounds of lawful money of Pennsylvania with a rent yearly forever of one pepper corn if the same shall be demanded," is dated April 28, 1786.
