 Pennsylvania State Association of Boroughs Association and Municipal Associate Membership
The Borough was incorporated on March 9, 1893 and thirty of the thirty-seven landowners signed the applications for incorporation in order to separate from Darby Township.
Prior to its incorporation from Darby in 1893, the Borough of Yeadon evolved from the original occupation of the Lenni Lanape Native American group to the early colonial settlement of four different governments; first the Dutch, then the Swedes, then the English, and finally, into the control of the Colonial American government.

 Lake and Peninsula Borough v. Local Boundary Commission, et al (12/2/94), 885 P 2d 1059

The Villages argue that the de facto doctrine should not apply because: (1) the Alaska Legislature abolished the de facto doctrine with respect to private corporations, AS 10.06.218; and (2) even if the doctrine has not been abolished for municipal corporations, there was no colorable compliance with the statutory requirements.
Villages contend that this orderly process was not followed and, as a result, the Borough's incorporation effort was defective.12 The superior court agreed with the Villages and concluded that notice was defective. /sp/html/sp-4152.htm

Although subsequent incorporations in some states refer to the initial charter, in most states the only way to determine whether a particular incorporation is the earliest is by examining the laws of each legislative session of each territory, colony and state, a very time-consuming, but worthwhile and ongoing process.
Most laws that incorporated municipalities individually or in groups were legally effective and in force from and after their passage or approval by the Governor.
One reason for this general uniformity is that, as the country grew westward, the newer territories and states borrowed incorporation legislation from the older adjacent territories or states. /city/CitiesDatabank.html   (7707 words)

The former Hartbeespoort council's advocate, Mike Maritz, SC, argued on Wednesday that a decision by the board to enlarge the Hartbeespoort municipal area by some 150 percent should be set aside, because the board had not adhered to the procedural requirements prescribed by law.
