History of Bucks County, Pennsylvania by William Watts Hart Davis

The Randall family have been residents of Bucks county for over two centuries, and are of English descent. Nicholas Randall, a carpenter by trade and a native of England, settled in Southampton township, Bucks county, where he purchased 250 acres of land in 1698.

His son, Nicholas Randall, Jr., married in 1738 Agnes Comly, daughter of Henry and Agnes (Heaton) Comly, of Middletown, and later removed to Moreland township.

George, Joseph and William Randall, supposed to be sons of Nicholas, became members of Buckingham Meeting of Friends in 1722. They lived for a time near Newtown, removing later to Southampton. Joseph removed to York county with his family in 1755.

Both George and Joseph married Doans. daughters of Daniel Doan and Mehetabel his wife, who came to Middletown, Bucks county, from Sandwich. Massachusetts. George Randall married (second) Mary Harding, widow of Thomas Harding, Jr.. and another daughter of Henry and Agnes (Heaton) Comly.

Newtown, Bucks County, Pennsylvania was founded by William Penn in 1684. It is north of Philadelphia and just west of Trenton, New Jersey.

York County is in south central Pennsylvania and was created on August 19, 1749 from part of Lancaster County.
