Rev. William Marshall (1740-1802), preacher at the Philadelphia Associate Presbyterian Church

Rev. William Marshall, pastor of the thriving Philadelphia congregation, was on hand to help acclimate the Youngs to their new culture.

London, Feb. 14, 1773.
REV" SER: — I duly received your respected Letter of
Oct. 30, and am very sensible of the Propriety and Equity
of the Act passed to indulge your Friends in their Scruples,
relating to the Mode of Taking an Oath, which you plead
for so ably by numerous Reasons. That Act, with others
has now been sometime laid before his Majesty in Council.
I have not yet heard of any Objection to it; but if such
should arise, I shall do my utmost to remove them, and

obtain the Royal Assent. Believe me, Reverend Sir, to have
the warmest Wishes for the Increase of Religious as well as
Civil Liberty thro'out the World ; and that I am, with great
Regard, your most obedient humble Servant,

of the Rev. William Marshall at the outbreak
of the Revolution, and he continued in that charge

army entered Philadelphia, when, in consequence of,M1

with Mr. Marshall were William Young, bookseller,
of Rockland, in Brandywine ; Robert Aitken, who
printed the first English Bible in this country ; John Purdon, merchant, father of John, author of " Pur- don's Digest;" Frazier Kinley; John McCulloch, printer; John McAllister, whip, cene, and spectacle- maker; and James McConchy, storekeeper. Mr. Marshall's salary was small, and not sufficient for bis support. While in Philadelphia he married Mre. Marshall, widow of a Capt. Marshall. She had been keeping a boarding-house, and after her marriage with Rev. Mr. Marshall she continued in the same occupation, by means of which herself and husband were made comfortable. Among her boarders were members of the Convention to frame

back to chester county
year 1848, a valuable public improvement,

named Marshall Square, was inaugurated on the

Northern side of the Village, in pursuance of the following

Ordinance, by the Borough Authorities: "

Whereas, it has been deemed expedient and proper

to improve the Public Square, on which the npj>er

reservoir connected with the water-works of the

Borough is situated, by laying out the same in suitable

walks, and introducing various ornamental trees and

shrubbery: and whereas it will be convenient and

necessary to designate the said Square by some appropriate

name: and whereas the late HUMPHRY MARSHALL,

of Chester County, was one of the earliest and

most distinguished Horticulturists and Botanists of

our Country, having established the second Botanic

Garden in this Republic; and also prepared and pub

lished the first Treatise on the Forest Trees and

Shrubs of the United States, and diffused a taste for

Botanical Science, which entitles his memory to the

lasting respect of his countrymen: Therefore

Resolved, By the Burgesses and Assistant Burgesses

of the Borough of West Chester, in Council Assembled,

That the Public Square, aforesaid, shall forever

hereafter lie designated and known by the name

of "THE MARSHALL SQUARE," in commemoration of

the exemplary character, and scientific labors, of our

distinguished fellow citizen, the late HUMPHRY MARSHALL,

of West Bradford township, Chester County.
