THE MANORS OF WESTCHESTER

From volume 1 of Thomas Scharf's History of Westchester County, New York....,, page 91:

"There were in the county of Westchester Six Manors, which together comprised by far the largest part of its area."
"The Manors were those of "Cortlandt,"  "Scarsdale,"  "Pelham,"  "Morrisania,"  "Fordham," and "Philipseborough," or as it was, and is usually written and pronounced "Philipseburgh." Of these, Cortlandt, and Philipseburgh, were much the largest."
