DescriptionNorthampton County (population 267,000) was created on March 11, 1752 from
parts of Bucks County and named for Northamptonshire, England, where Thomas
Penn's father-in-law, the Earl of Pomfret, lived. Easton, the county seat, was named
for the Earl's estate.

The Government of Northampton County consists of:

the residents and municipalities of Northampton County, and oversees the
departments of Administration, Community & Economic Development, Corrections,
Court Services, Fiscal Affairs, Human Resources, Human Services, and Public
