About Chadds Ford
Chadds Ford Township, Pennsylvania, is a township in Delaware County. It is located about 25 miles southwest of Philadelphia. The original name of the township, Birmingham, was given to the territory by William Brinton in remembrance of the town of the same name in England. Frances Chadsey, or Chads, improperly spelled Chadd, emigrated from Wiltshire, England in 1689 and lived in Chichester Township until 1696 when his name first appeared in the Birmingham Township tax records.
Chadds Ford was home to N.C. Wyeth, his son, Andrew Wyeth, and grandson, Jamie Wyeth. The Brandywine Battlefield (site of the Battle of Brandywine) is located in the township, along with the Brandywine River Museum, which houses much of the Wyeth collection. Weldon Brinton Heyburn (1852–1912), a U.S. senator from Idaho, was born in Chadds Ford.
