(There's an Upland in this county somewhere?)
It's not the link that's broken: I can't get to the Books section at all right now. (Search - Books gives the same 502 Bad Gateway error.)
I hope a moderator sees this and forwards it to the right people.
FamilySearch places has the following defined Upland locations:
if someone reads this book (when the error is fixed) - they should be able to decipher to which of these locations the title is referring. As near as I can tell there is no current Upland, Chester county, Pennsylvania - but it is probable and to me appears - that in the timeframe of the title (1651-1706) Upland settlement was in Chester County.
(@genthusiast, there was also a place a little ways north and a bit west of Kennett Square. The only trace it seems to have left is the name of a school, and possibly a roadsign somewhere. It's about 12 miles from my house, but it's not an area I've ever travelled in, as it's not on our way to anything, unless we get Really Lost taking back roads to Longwood Garden.)
This may be the same document on the Test Family Genealogy site:
@RobertTest FamilySearch Books/this link are working for me now. Upland does indeed refer to the settlement of that name in Colonial Pennsylvania (see above).
Just checked - The link is working now.
When William Penn landed in America in 1682 he changed the name of the town of Upland to Chester.

Indeed it is my transcription of that article but I don't like to "force" people to my website when it is available at familysearch.
And I might not always have that website.

So sorry Robert. Didn't realize that was YOUR site. My intention was to help you see the document while Books was down. You didn't say you already had the document.
I'm smiling -- no need to apologize -- I appreciate any mention of the website I can get -- so I should have thanked you for the reference -- thank you many times over.
I just like to reference the most easily available institutional websites -- they are more likely to be secure and the most likely site to be around twenty years from now.
