East Norriton Township was included in one of the early towns created by Penn called Williamstadt. The tract was intended as a gift to William Penn's son, but five days after receiving the land, William Penn, Jr. sold it to two Philadelphia merchants, Isaac Norris and William Trent for the sum of 850 pounds sterling. Eight years later, Norris purchased Trent's five  holdings and gained ownership of the entire tract.The Manor of Williamstadt remained intact until 1730 when, on petition of its residents, Norriton Township was created by the court of Quarter Sessions of Philadelphia County. The creation of the Borough of Norristown in 1812 and the subsequent addition of 1,500 acres to the Borough reduced the area of Norriton Township to about 5,500 acres. East Norriton Township's incorporation dates back to March 9, 1909 when it was separated through a court order from the larger "Norriton" Township
