I was born & raised in Horsham West Sussex England, I understand that there's a town in PA with the same name & was indeed named after Horsham Sussex. Is this accurate?

Yes, there are many places in the US named after English or British towns. In PA alone, there's also a York, Salford, Warrington, Warminster, Lancaster, Reading, Bath, Chester, Southampton. I'm sure there's more... and there's also some areas named after Welsh areas.
