Boundary Survey

The village of Treorchy apparently takes its name from the stream that flows from the mountainside above the village into the River Rhondda.

The genesis of the line was a protracted boundary dispute between the proprietary families of Maryland (the Calverts) and Pennsylvania (the Penns). To settle the matter, they commissioned a survey and hired two Englishmen, Charles Mason, an astronomer, and Jeremiah Dixon, a surveyor. The pair arrived in Philadelphia in 1763.
