I've not done "real" research in PA that early, but I briefly checked the FHL Card Catalog, and it appears there are deeds back to the late 1600s.

Use the old FHL catalog and search by place at:

In addition, the Pennsylvania State Archives has images of several of their early land warrant registers and surveys online. A good place to start if you find you're dealing with original grants rather than resale deeds is:

Be sure to also click on the Land Records link/tab in the upper right hand corner for additional information.
