At the same meeting, the inhabitants agreed to set up a pound on the land aforesaid. April 28, 1684: Thomas Willis was chosen to keep the town's pound; and said pound-keeper shall have, for pounding, twopence per head for horses and also neat cattle; one penny for each hog; and, for sheep, after the rate of sixpence per score. This answered all purposes until May 15, 1758, when the town voted to build a new pound with stone. This was built accord

Harper's Encyclopedia of United States History (ed. Benson Lossing), Hazelwood, John 1726-1800 (search)
Hazelwood, John 1726-1800 Naval officer; born in England about 1726; settled in Philadelphia. In December, 1775, he was made superintendent of fire-ships; in September, 1777, became commander of the naval force of Pennsylvania. Col. William Bradshaw wrote in a letter, dated Oct. 7, 1777, that when Lord Howe, who had anchored with his squadron in Delaware Bay, sent word to Hazelwood to surrender his fleet, with the promise of the King's pardon, the latter replied that he would defend the fleet to the last. He died in Philadelphia, Pa., about March 1, 1800.
