William Penn conveyed to his son John Penn a tract of twelve thousand acres within what is now Douglas township. In John Penn sold the land to George McCall, a merchant of Philadelphia. Upon a new survey It was discovered the tract described really contained about two thousand acres more than was originally conveyed. This land was known many years as the "McCall Manor," and later was in Douglas township, which appears to have been erected in 1741,
