Curious about “Crooked Billet” history?

The property was deeded by William Penn to Adam Stedham who built his small two room stone home there in 1684, and whose son, William, expanded that home in 1702 to become a tavern and inn that he called “Crooked Billet” which was a name frequently given to medieval English taverns, when a bent stick, then called a billet, was hung over the tavern doors to let travelers know, few of whom could read, that ale, food and lodging were available. General Washington and his army met at Crooked Billet on September 9, 1777, shortly crossing the Brandywine into Pennsylvania at Pyles Ford to meet the British in the Battle of the Brandywine on September 11th. Crooked Billet continued to operate as an inn until 1811 when it became a farm and passed to the duPont family in 1864 where it has remained since then.
