History of Croydon/ Bristol
The name Croydon is derived from the Anglo-Saxon word croh (crocus) and denu (valley). This beautiful town is home to Strayer University, Cairn University-Langhorne, and Pennco Tech-Bristol as well as mid-size businesses, including PAC Industries and Denaq Laptop Batteries. Bordered by the Neshaminy Creek and Delaware River, just off I-95, it’s no wonder this town (Bristol Borough) was a popular seaport in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Located in Bucks County (PA), the history of Croydon is based on Bristol. Bristol was established in 1681 by Samuel Clift. According to Doron Green, Clift received the title to 262 acres of land. Bristol was once called “Buckingham” and is the “third oldest town” in Pennsylvania. The town was built on a Native American trial that lead to the Delaware River. Bristol was a popular crossing from Pennsylvania and New Jersey, in which the ferry was a prized means of transportation during the Revolutionary War.
Bristol was the only seaport above Philadelphia where ship manufacturing was established at the time. The first ship was built in April 1727, a 25-ton sloop named “Expedition.”

Croydon Senior Caregivers
My mom considered her caregivers one of her friends. I think this is the type of service that is needed when dealing with the elderly who just need a little extra help. Keep up the good work team!
