Crebilly Court Dispute Put on Pause to Sell Historic Farm

A brotherly dispute over how the historic Crebilly Farm’s proceeds should be handled was set aside temporarily, writes Michael P. Rellahan for The Daily Local News.

James “Rob” Robinson and David Robinson were head-to-head in court. But after an hour-long conference between their attorneys, the embattled brothers agreed to put the dispute on pause in order to continue the sale.  

The assets from the sale would go into a partnership account and the brothers would have to return to court later if they cannot agree on how to disperse the funds.

The Crebilly Farm Family Association agreed to sell 206 acres to Westtown — with grant-writing assistance from Natural Lands— to use for open space and recreation. Twenty-four acres will go to an unnamed third party. 

The historic farmland was the stomping grounds of the American Revolution. Nearby residents have fought for several years to keep the iconic land preserved.
