Bryn Mawr is named after an estate near Dolgellau in North Whales that belonged to Rowland Ellis, a Quaker who immigrated to Pennsylvania in 1686 from Dolgellau to escape religious persecution.

The town was called as Humphreysville until 1869 and the coming of the Pennsylvania Railroad. The town was renamed by railroad agent William H. Wilson after he acquired on behalf of the railroad the 283 acres that now comprise Bryn Mawr.

The first hospital on the Main Line, Bryn Mawr Hospital, was built in 1893 on the Main Line by Dr. George Gerhard.Glenays. Bryn Mawr totals about 0.6 square miles which is located both in Lower Merion Township in Montgomery County and  in Delaware County.
