Rockhill Township, settled in the early 18th century and established as a township in 1740, was once the largest township in the county, comprising what are now Perkasie, Sellersville, and Telford Boroughs. In 1890 Rockhill was split into two townships, East and West. Englishmen were the first land purchasers, but it was German Mennonites who first settled here. In the early 18th century the area was sometimes referred to as "Servants," as William Penn had reserved land intended to be home to indentured servants.
Within the boundaries of the township are found vestiges of four significant historic villages: Almont, Derstine, Naceville, and Ridge Valley.
