History & History Related Items

Colesville history:

The first known resident of what would become Colesville was William Beall in 1723. Later, in 1747, his grandson, James Odell, began to farm the land there. A gristmill was built in the 1790’s by Peter Kemp. The first use of the name of Colesville came on 25 January 1806 when the state changed the polling place for the election to Edward Berry’s, locally known as Coale’s-Ville. Some believe the name was from the maiden name of Elizabeth (Coale) Snowden, wife of Richard Snowden who owned Snowden’s Manor in a nearby area. The name continued to be used and by 1824, it was established as the name for the town.
