William Penn, founder of Pennsylvania, spent the final years of his life in Ruscombe Fields, a property close to Twyford, and is remembered by a residential street named 'Pennfields'.
Twyford's economy was based on agriculture until the coming of the railway in 1838. The greatest expansion of population has taken place in the last 20 years, effectively transforming it from a village to a minor town. Its position on the Great Western Main Line railway has facilitated this growth, many residents commuting to London and Reading for work.
