Southampton's inamesake is Southampton, England, the seaport from which adventurous followers of William Penn sailed to the Province of Pennsylvania. By 1685, Southampton was recognized by the Provincial Council as a township, and the lands within its borders had been allocated to thirteen original purchasers. In 1929 the township was divided into "Upper Southampton" and "Lower Southampton". Southampton is true to its town motto - "A Nice Place to Live."
