We'll Be Your Friends. William Penn Strengths Strengths and Weaknesses Charter of Pennsylvania Trivia Question Answers William Penn is just one of many who is well known to be associated with the colony of Pennsylvania. William Penn was born October 14, 1644, in London. He was owed a debt of 16,000 Euros by King Charles of England. Instead the King decided to give him a charter of what is now present day Pennsylvania for his debt. William Penn then went on to establish this region, in 1682, as "Pennsylvania" which means "Penn's Woods." Many Quakers settled here.
