Valley Township was formed in 1852 by a decree of the court. It was composed of a considerable slice off the south end of West Caln and a small slice off the south end of West Brandywine. It is half its original size having been reduced in size by the incorporation of the Borough of Coatesville in 1867 and in 1868 by the creation of the Township of Caln.
