PREFACE. 



The interest, variety and importance of the early official rec- 
ords of New Jersey have been known in a general way for 
many years to special students in different fields of historical 
research. Their extent has made it difficult for any one per- 
son to master their contents. The present volume has been 
compiled with a view to acquainting the people of this State 
with the character of these early records, and to place at the 
disposal of students the substance of the contents of the manu- 
script volumes covering the Colonial period of New Jersey his- 
tory, or to the surrender of the government to Queen Anne, 
in 1703. 

These records were originally kept by the Secretary of the 
Colony of New Jersey, at Elizabethtown, the first seat of gov- 
ernment. When the Colony was divided into East Jersey and 
West Jersey, the records of the two Divisions were preserved 
in their respective capitals Perth Amboy and Burlington, and 
there thev remained for upwards of a century. By an act 
passed by the Legislature, November 25, 1790, the seat of gov- 
ernment of the State of New Jersey was located at Trenton, 
and it was provided that the records of conveyances and wills 
pertaining to government, should be transferred from Burling- 
ton and Perth Amboy as soon as proper quarters should be pro- 
vided for them at the new capital. The records of warrants 
and surveys were retained in the offices of the Registers of 
East and West Jersey, respectively, at Perth Amboy anil Bur- 
lington. The State has made appropriations from time to time 
for the erection and maintenance of suitable buildings for these 
latter offices and records. 

In the table of contents is given a brief description of the 
volumes, the records in which are summarized in the following 
Calendar or Analytical Index, with a general view of the doc- 



X PREFACE. 

uments in each, and the period covered by them, which may 
serve as somewhat of a guide to the use of this work. 

New Jersey was one of the Proprietary Governments. The 
grant by Charles Second to his brother, the Duke of York, con- 
veyed not only the soil, but the right of government. In like 
manner, the title to the soil and the right of government passed 
from the Duke of York to Sir George Carteret and Lord John 
Berkeley, and from them to their giantees, in East Jersey and 
West Jersey respectively. When the right of government was 
surrendered to the Crown in 1703, the title to the soil so far as 
undisposed of, remained in the Proprietors. In this volume 
will be found abstracts of the original grants, concessions, in- 
structions and orders of the first Proprietors and Governors. 
These records, moreover, describe the circumstances under 
which the first settlements were made in the Colony, the evolu- 
tion of the government, the origin of the land titles in the Colony 
and in the various subdivisions thereof, the origin and charac- 
teristics of the first settlers, their occupations, their manners 
and customs, their early struggles, their failures and their suc- 
cesses, and in general the experiences and environments which 
welded a most heterogeneous population, with most diverse in- 
terests, into a homogeneous commonwealth, compelled by cir- 
cumstances to be self-reliant, with a feeling of hostility toward 
outside dictation in their affairs, especially against the Proprie- 
tors (largely residents in England and Scotland), and who not 
only oppressed the settlers by their exactions of quit rents, but 
who influenced legislation and taxation through their Govern- 
ors and Councils. Thus the people of New Jersey were edu- 
cated for a hundred years in the principles of self-government, 
intensified by a perpetual struggle against the effort to impose 
upon them taxes for the support of Governors and governments 
not of their own making. In the following pages can be 
traced the beginnings of that contest which culminated in New 
Jersey's Declaration of Independence, on July 2, 1776. 

The instructions to the Governors, and the grants and con- 
cessions to the first settlers, show how scrupulously careful were 
the Proprietors to acquire honestly the Indian title to the occu- 
pancy of the soil. The numerous Indian deeds, of which ab- 



PREFACE. XI 

stracts are given, show that the settlers in practice fully con- 
formed to the regulations on the subject. In the index will be 
found a large number of Indian names of persons and places, 
from which some idea may be formed as to the extent of the 
aboriginal occupancy of the soil, the villages, cultivated lands, 
fisheries, burial places and other localities in which the primi- 
tive inhabitants were specially interested. Perhaps the consid- 
erable number of these Indian words here given may be of 
some value to the students of American ethnology and linguist- 
ics, especially to those interested in the history of the Lenni 
Lenape. 

The development of mines and mining, pottery, lumber, 
whale fishing and other industries is indicated by various deeds, 
contracts and other documents, cited in the index under appro- 
priate heads. Under the title "Occupations" will be found a 
list of the early inhabitants whose avocations are described in 
deeds, etc. This classification throws an interesting light upon 
the varied character of the first settlers attracted to New 
Jersey. It is amusingly indicative of the unsettled social status 
of the seventeenth century immigrants to find the same person 
described in one instrument as a "husbandman," in another ss 
a "carpenter," then as a "gentleman," and again as a "black- 
smith" or a "planter." The names given by some to their 
plantations "Bacon's Adventure," "Baconsfield," "Bradway's 
Neck," "Braithwaite's Hall," "Drayton House," "Fenwick's 
Manor," "Forrest's Grove," ' Garrett's Choice," "Guy's 
Point," "Hancock's Hurst," " Haslefield," " Hedgefield," 
"Langford's Plantation," > ' LangstafFs Plain," " Lefevor's 
Chase," "Moseley's Shield," "Provo's Holt," "Petersfield," 
" Robinson's Plantation," 4 ' Roysefield," " Srnithfield," 
"Smith's Bowery,'' " Sonmans' Manor," " Tindall's Bow- 
ery," " Tinton Manor," " Watson's Ranthrope," "Webb's 
Arladon," " White's Vineyard," etc., are significant of the 
brave ambitions of the early adventurers to found great estates 
in the New Woild, wherein their own family names would 
be perpetuated, after the manner of the Mother Country neigh- 
borhoods whence they came. The Supplementary Index, giv- 
ing the names of places in England, Scotland and Ireland 



Xll PREFACE. 

where many of the original owners of land in New Jersey re- 
sided, and whence most of the first settlers came, shows how 
wide was the interest of those countries in the new Colony. 
Nearly half the counties of England are represented in this 
index. 

The interest and importance of this volume to the genealo- 
gist will be obvious at a glance. A considerable number of 
marriage certificates in the early records have been reserved for 
a separate volume of Marriage Records, to be issued in the 
series of New Jersey Archives. 

The philologist will be interested to find in these pages some 
unusual words "pytle," "Scotchman," etc., and other com- 
mon words or phrases used in an archaic sense. 

The character of this work has seemed to make it unneces- 
sary to annotate it freely, and hence but few notes have been 
given. 

The Calendar and the General Index have been prepared by 
Mr. Berthold Fernow, the accomplished archivist of New 
York. To those acquainted with his work the mention of this 
fact will be a sufficient guarantee of the thoroughness and ac- 
curacy with which this volume has been prepared. 

If the Legislature should approve, and make the requisite 
appropriations, abstracts of the records of the Province to 
1776 will be prepared and published uniformly with this vol- 
ume.

i Maryon. or Maryen. This John Campbell was doubtless he who is men- 
tioned as having arrived at Perth Amboy about October. 1684, with his wife, three 
children and eleven servants. Whitehead assumes that he was a son of Lord 
Neill Campbell, son of the Marquis and brother to the Earl of Argyle, and who 
fled to New Jersey to escape bitter persecution in Scotland, remaining here from 
1685 until 168?. WhiMtead's Perth Amboy, 22; Whittheaa's East Jersey. 169-170. 
Wodrow, in his "History of the Sufferings." etc., says of Lord Campbell, under date 
of 1685: "He was forced to go in the Hazard of his Life to America, and leave his 
Lady and Family behind him." Vol. II. (folio ed.). p. 549. But John Campbell 
was not a son of Lord Neill Campbell though apparently a kinsman. He was 
one of the East Jersey Proprietors, a member of the Court of Common Right, and 
a representative in the General Assembly. He died in the summer of 1690, his 
will being admitted to probate August 2 of that year. His eldest daughter, Ann, 
married John Stevens, of Amboy, the ancestor of the Hoboken family of that 
name. X T. Gen. and Biog. Record, XVI.. 6-10.

1 Samuel Hedge was the son of Samuel Hedge, a merchant and citizen of Lon- 
don. He came over with Fenwick. in the summer of 1675. and in the following 
spring married the latter's daughter Ann. Fenwick conveyed to them a tract of 
2.000 acres in the llth mo. of the same year (February. 1677). in Upper Manning- 
ton, whither the young couple removed, and where they resided until 1685. It was 
known as the Hedgefleld tract. Hedge signed the West Jersey Concessions, 
March 3, 1076-7. His father-in-law appointed him Surveyor-General of the Col- 
ony, April 30. 1678. He was clerk and recorder of deeds of Salem county, until 
1692. As a member of the West Jersey House of Representatives he signed an ad- 
dress to King William III.. May 20. 1697, congratulating him on his escape from a 
reported plot. He was still a member of the House in 1701. when he and other 
members petitioned the King for the appointment of Andrew Hamilton as Gover- 
nor of New Jersey. Having been appointed one of his father-in-law's executors, 
he returned in 1685 to Salem, where he built a brick house on Bradway street, in 
which he and his wife resided until their death. They had one son, Samuel Hedge 
3d. who married Rebecca Pyle; he died 3d of lith mo. 1708-9. leaving a will, from

dren, all sons.

Kent. England, and in 1673 married Susannah Marcy. dau. of Edward Marcy. In

Two months later he bought of Samuel and Ann Hedge 1.000 acres of the Hedge- 
field tract, at Upper Mannington. and there resided thenceforth, his place being 
known as Smithfield. He appears to have been a man of unusual business ability, 
and he must have possessed more than ordinary tact, to win and keep the good 
will of the irascible Proprietor of Salem Tenth, who in his will, dated August 7, 
1683. named him as one of his executors. 

3 Richard Tindall came to America in 1678. and soon after bought from Fenwick 
200 acres at Mannington, his place being known as Tindall's Grove. He was ap- 
pointed Surveyor General of Salem Tenth, in 1680. and was also employed by 
James Nevill to survey William Penn's lands in the same Colony. He was named 
as an executor in Fenwick's will, of August 7, 1683.

this country. He came over with Fenwick. and brought a wife, but apparently no 
children. He seems to have had a decided taste for the law. and a fondness for 
writing, which led Fenwick to appoint him Secretary for the Salem Colony, April 
80. 1678. He was a magistrate (commissioned Oct. 26, 1679), a conveyancer and 
scrivener, real estate agent, and a little of everything else. He signed the West 
Jersey Concessions, March 3, 1676-7. In 1081-4 he was an agent of William Penn. 
adversely to Fenwick. One of the volumes of Salem Records is filled with mis- 
cellaneous memoranda, made by him. of leases, law suits, contracts, etc.. etc., of 
the greatest interest and value to the local historian.
