Who is Humphry Marshall (1722-1801)?

Humphry Marshall is the namesake for the Village of Marshallton. Few people know about his many talents. Articles in the West Bradford Newsletter, starting with the Fall 2021 edition, are providing insight into his life. 


The 300th anniversary of his birth will take place October 10, 2022. To honor him numerous events will take place from June of 2022 to October 8, 2022 when a final celebration of his life will take place at Martin's Tavern. Mark your calendar. More details will be added here as they become available.

Beginning in 2003, Friends of Martin's Tavern (FOMT), a citizen-formed 501c(3) non-profit corporation, restored Martin's Tavern. Since that restoration, several neglected properties within site of the tavern have seen restorative work and the village grows more beautiful every year. While no one can claim that the restoration of the tavern by itself has sparked a renaissance of pride in Marshallton, it can be said that when a small village cares for its most neglected properties in this way, it can’t help but be an inspiration to those who own other historic structures in the village.


FOMT is also the caretakers of the Marshallton Blacksmith Shop, a nearby historic building which was built in 1750 and remains essentially unchanged from its original condition.
