The land was surveyed on Dec. 22, 1735 and patented to John Leman on February 20, 1743. Hans served as a minister in the Hernley Mennonite Church and became its first bishop.

(First known as Rapho Mennonite Meetinghouse, then Lehman, now Hernley). The deed cantained the names of Thomas and Richard Penn. The first house also served as a schoolhouse for the community.
